I agree - not tacky at all!! You do what feels right and works for you.

YAY!!!! I don't think we've had anything purchased from our registry. And my friend who talked about throwing a shower for me seems to have flaked out. Frankly, I don't feel like bringing it up again anyway - it is what it is.

I'm hoping to get back into the wedding DIY crap this weekend, but I really have wedding-planning fatigue. I'm almost over it all at this point lol

 

Meanwhile my FI is getting all hardcore about planning the music for the reception. We had a 30 minute conversation about various apps for DJ music, types of music he wanted to include, blah blah blah. And by "we had" I mean he went on and on for 30 minutes while I nodded and tried to feign interest! boys...they are funny.

yup! invites out. and i absolutely LOVE them. we did the boardng pass invites and received so many compliments.  My cousin actually made them for me, and she is amazing! Better than I expected. Bought our flight tickets to the DR (finally) a couple of days ago...only $298. I couldn't believe I found them so low. I've never paid that little to go to the DR. what else. waiting on folks to finish booking, as they only have 1 week before final payments are due for the hotel.  AND I almost forgot...got a call today that my dress has arrived at the store! time for a fitting!!

$298?!?! That is amazing!!!! I'm so jealous!! Since we are traveling thanksgiving week (getting married on Black Friday, lol) our direct flight to Cancun is $600!!! ugh!!! Our final payments for both are due Oct 5th..so we still have time!

 

Yay for dress being in!! I need to take my dress to my fiance's grandma's house as she is altering my dress for me!

Shan-

We are going to be right near each other. We are getting married 11-21 in Playa del carmen. Flying into Cancun as well so I hear you on the ticket prices...ouch!

How's planning going?

How fun!! Ya the ticket prices suck!! But with so many of our friends as teachers, my mom is a teacher's aide and my sister and my fiance's brother are in college- we didn't really have any other options- Thanksgiving or Christmas. 

 

It's going well- I try and check a couple things off my list every week/weekend.  I am super busy though right now- we are in the midst of buying a house and one of my best friends is getting married Sept 22nd, so we have her bachelorette party next weekend.  It's a little overwhelming, but it's all fun and will be worth it!! I won't know what to do with myself after Nov, I'll be so bored, haha.

 

How's planning for you?

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
