Recommended Posts


Dominiqueamber,

 

Get outta here... OMG I am so humbled and honored espeically because there are some FLY planning threads that I have come across on this site.  Thank you so very much for taking the time to tell me your thoughts.. and for noticing the effort (Whew chile LOL)...  Thank you, thank you...  I tell you this, if it wasn't for the fact that we had brought our 1st home together, got a dog etc... I totally would have done much more.  But then FI kept telling me "We are doing a destination wedding for a reason"  haha....  my response (to myself of course) was oh now you want to participate stupid.gif

UPDATE!!!!!!!   this is the biggest update yet.  Haha.... can you ladies believe that I had 2 people book just last week?  OMG.. funny thing is they saw my facebook message (I had talked about the countdown and tagged EACH of our guests that is on facebook).  She called me and wondered why she wasn't tagged.. and from there I learned that she had booked but forgot to tell me since she didn't use my travel agent.  Thank God for packing extras.. but the only thing they will not have are the escort cards since I had those made from an etsy vendor (they should be here this week so I will take a picture and post)..  66 guest + Bride & Groom..  We are going to shut Moon Palace Down.... Party!!! cheers.gifshots.gifrockon.gif

Hey Soon2bMrsT,

 

Thanks so much, I'm just paying it forward as this site has been an amazing help to me.

We are going to shut it down in a good way ;-)  How exciting and congrats, your day is fast approaching as well.  We leave MP on Wednesday the 25th, so we will be plan to be at Wet N' Wild on the 24th as this will probably be our only excursion day.  What time do you arrive?

Wow, Coco.  Where do I start?

 

 

I just read your thread after completing mine. (I didn't want to read yours and get COMPLETELY inspired that I ended up doing mine just like yours, LOL!)  And I'm blown away.  (Even more than I thought I would be... which is a lot!!)

 

I want to share something with you that's a bit embarassing but truthful.  When I first met you on the Moon Palace 2012 thread that I was jealous of you at first.  Yup.  stupid.gif  Crazy.  I know, right?  I guess it was just that you embodied everything I wanted to be on here: genuinely encouraging, super generous, supportive, helpful, amazingly creative, and just an all-around beautiful person.  And then I asked myself, "What Would Love Do?"  And I decided to quit being jealous and do my best to live out these qualities towards you and every other bride on here. 

 

I want to share that because not only have you completely inspired me to live out the wedding of my dreams in my own DIY projects and have truly supported me on here when I was in dire need of it...

 

                    ......... you have inspired me to be a better person.

 

 

So, thank you with all my heart.  hug2.gif  I'm so blessed to have met you on here.  Celebrating you with so much Love as you prepare for your amazing Big Day.  You deserve EVERY happiness.

 

Lots of Love,Tammy

Tammy,

 

 

First and foremost thank you for your compliments on the thread, it is much appreciated.  We have shared much on the MP12 forum, so you know that when I speak, share etc.. I do it from the heart as I truly don't believe in any other way.  As you have shared, I feel the need to do the same because after all that is what this site was formed onmsnwink.gif  In all honesty, while reading I had to do a double take and read it several times.  Why you ask, well I just couldn't fathom that anyone would/could be jealous of another on this site, as we all found the site in search of "what would help us to plan our own wedding and thus have landed on BDW.  Many of us (myself included) had no knowledge of all the DIY things that could be done with such ease or those that would require us to do several re-do's (and you  know I had a few of those) and seek out templates etc.  Templates, textures of paper and pictures have sparked many creative ideas, thoughts and paths to future business for all of us is some way or another.  In speaking for myself, I would see something that I liked or maybe not but thought.. "this is US somewhat, but how can I make it US" and that is all that I set out to do regardless of the forum(s) used.  I was on a quest to get it right for the future Mr. and Mrs. Wright ;-) 

 

Tammy, I thank you for your honesty and willingness to post this, to not only help other brides-to-be but to also help another that maybe struggling with this feeling in her quest to DIY, create and enjoy her wedding day.  As such, I know that this in some fashion has brought a sense of closure and peace to your very own feelings because Love does just that!  Religious or not, we can all draw something from this to use not only in our wedding planning process, but in life!

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves."

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
 
With this my friend, I say WELL DONE to a beautiful planning process that lead up to a MAGNIFICENT wedding day that was ALL about you and your husband.  Because in the end, after BDW, after the DIY's, after the planning threads and final reviews will be the life that you lead with your Mr.  ENJOY it to the fullest!!
 
Lots of LOVE and hug2.gif

    • 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
