Pics are coming in all over the place from friends and family and my husband is making an album on Facebook, but my one friend is posting a ton on Flickr and its open access so you can see some of the pics so far here:

Good Morning Ladies,

 

Wedding etiquette question; Chad and I received a rather large check as a wedding present and we asked for no gifts. We really donâ€t want to cash the check because itâ€s just too much. Is that rude?

 

Thanks a million for your input.

Sorry for just now seeing your question newlyengaged13; I didnâ€t find it difficult to walk in my long dress, but it was kind of awkward with my shoes (they do put down a board beneath the aisle runner). For the rehearsal I wore heels just to see what it would be like and it wasnâ€t easy. Thankfully, I bought a pair of flat dressy sandals just in case and I wore those for the ceremony and my heels for the reception. But even walking in my flat sandals the sand got in my shoes/feet so I could have just gone barefoot but didnâ€t want that for the pics.

Thank you for your advice.  I kind of figured that would happen.  Photos on the beach are just so beautiful.  I'll just have to suck it up. lol

I haven't yet decided if I am going barefoot or using a nice pair of flats.

Good Morning Ladies,

 

I did a civil (legal) ceremony and prior to our wedding I was nervous our marriage certificate wouldnâ€t be accepted by the state. I had read many mixed reviews online and in these forums about other brides†certificates not being accepted and as a result they had to also get married at their local courthouse. Just thought Iâ€d let everyone know I successfully changed my last name yesterday with the Social Security Office and my local DMV; no marriage at our local courthouse needed. Both offices were able to verify the certificate was valid and authentic. Hope this helps if anyone is on the fence with having a civil/legal ceremony.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
