1 thing to do down. . .4763 to go!

Recommended Posts

Well, we've finalized our plans and paid our deposit (FINALLY!). We're officially spending three nights (four days) at Paradisus Punta Cana where we will be married on May 26, 2008 and then we're buggering off to Excellence Punta Cana where we've booked the Honeymoon Club Suite for a week.

 

And now the rest of the wedding planning goodness comes into play. We've booked our resorts, put down our deposits, now just to decide on invitations, STD's, receptions, flowers, ceremony locations, rings, dresses, suits, photographer, gifts, OOT bags, flights, menus, guests, headache medication/elephant tranquilizers (thats for me once I become to overwhelmed haha) and pretty much anything else we can possibly think of.

 

I have to admit the WORST part of planning a DW is the fact that whilst I can sit here, close my eyes and just imagine Sarah and I lounging around on the beautiful beach. I unfortunately have to open my eyes and find myself sitting in my terribly uncomfortable chair in my cold office (I don't think they believe in heat here) at work. . . 8 months away from that beach!

 

But oh well. . .as the great Leonardo Da Vinci once said:

"I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end."

 

Take care everyone and please keep the good advice coming!!

No worries! Get it over as soon as you're able and thank you to everyone!

I think we've selected our photographer as well. The lovely Ms. Robin DePaula boasts a rather impressive website and an attractive DW special right now. Even better yet, she's available when we need her!

Now. . .on to invitations/STD's! and then after spending massive amounts of money and having a mild heart attack . . . . shots.gif

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
