That's a good idea! ELF is just so cheap I'd be scared of it melting right off with the heat and stuff, but if you used it with no problems, that's probably what I'll do!  Did you use the actual Elf lashes or just the glue?

Hey Brandi,

 

I have the contact info and spreadsheet from AVI Solutions, the DJ company that replaced Doremixx if you want, i can forward to you? I totally get your frustration with Pilar. She is very hit and miss, though we had a lengthy phone conversation 2 wks ago and I feel much better about everything. Our problem is with our totally inept travel agent, who complicates every detail and confuses things, Pilar actually asked me if we could eliminate including my agent in the planning of the actual wedding bc of how effed up everything is getting!

My stupid ipad installed the bdw app and its all messed up on the web now so my display doesn't look normal- when is your wedding date?

Xo

Kristen

 

Could you send me the contact info and spreadsheet for avi solutions? I'll PM you with my email address.

 

Thanks

Wow! thanks for this info!! I will def be checking out orientaltrading and avon books! I know that i want to do welcome bags but i have yet to have started any research... When did you start purchasing items? My big day isnt till next May.

I used the actual lashes too. They worked really well - and it was the first time I've ever worn fake lashes. We stuck them on first, then we put on the rest of my make up. Our last step was to curl & put mascara on them with my own lashes to "bind" them together. They really made a HUGE difference. They stayed in place right up until I forgot and rubbed my eye after the reception. Then one came loose, and I didn't have the glue on me to stick it back on. So I just pulled both of them off and proceeded to the bar for the after party! You can't beat the price of those things though.

    • 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
