November 2012 Brides?

Recommended Posts

late breaking news...my sister has decided it isn't practical for them to go to Mexico for the wedding. so it looks like I'll be an EDR bride!! 

 

will be working with our TA to firm up prices and dates, then moving forward with our Save-the-Dates and website. bittersweet of course, I'd rather have my sister there. but it is what it is, and we'll be getting married regardless!

Happy New Year!!!!!

 

Ohhh the kitchen aid mixer. are you a big baker?? I've thought about those, but decided I probably wouldn't use it enough. 

 

Our Christmas was good - my FI surprised me and got me an iPad. I've coveted one since they came out, but just couldn't pull the trigger. Just savoring the last bit of the holidays. We're both off tomorrow, and planning to go to a basketball game tomorrow night. 

 

We have picked our date, and are just waiting to confirm it with EDR. Should get all of that tied up next week!!! 

 

Hey Nikki guess what?! WE'RE GETTING MARRIED THIS YEAR!! 

 

I'm a dork..I know.

must have been the Christmas for iPads huh?! FUN. 

 

I'm 303 days... and was working on our website earlier. Had typed out all sorts of FAQs and then lost it. grrrrrrr 

 

Our invite list is at 60. I'm really, really hoping only 20-30 end up going. Otherwise it's going to be way more expensive than I was planning on! Have also been talking with my friend who's a photographer to get a quote and see if we can afford to have her shoot our wedding. So things are moving along. 

 

it totally sucks that you'll have to wait that long for surgery. I guess no country really has healthcare figured out... I'm crossing my fingers that there's a cancellation and they get you in sooner. And NO PAIN ATTACKS ALLOWED, ok? cheesy.gif

ah yes, the tears. sometimes you just have to pull them out!!! glad you got a date, and this month!! I have a feeling that once your surgery & recovery is behind you, you'll be able to focus 100% on wedding planning. hang in there girl.

Have you asked your ladies to be bridesmaids yet???   How did you / or are you going to do it????

 

One of my to be Bridemaids just got prego so i don't think she will be coming but i really want her to be part of the planning process so i think i am going to ask her to be a bridesmaid /honnorary one anyways!!! 

 

I am thinking about getting some " will you be my bridesmaid?" Cards and do flowers?  or maybe make the cards!

 

What do you think?

I dont think I will have any official bridesmaids. My fi doesn't think any of his friends will go so he won't have any groomsmen. I like equal...so there you go. 

 

I will ask a couple of my closest friends to get ready with me in addition to my mom and be sort of "unofficial" bridesmaids. I am thinking about making some sort of card to send them to ask.

Well our bookings are open, and we should know who's going (or at least the majority) by 1/25. I'm both nervous and excited!! 

 

We've put our own deposit down for the rooms. Need to get the wedding deposit down too. It's all starting to really move!! 

 

Your surgery is this week, right?? Hoping for a fast and easy surgery, and a quick recovery too.

    • 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!!
