1 year of planning to be exact.. I sacrificed  a lot of weekends but it was all worth it.  Most of my BM"s were out of town so no big DIY parties.. but my Alcohol, music and BDW always kept me company.  Happy Planning and remember to capture you and your's FI vision...


Congrats to you.

Indeed!  We went June 11th but when they said he was coming in August (even though they were still going to give me the discount), I said I will come back.  And indeed I did.  I set my appointment for 4pm.  The last appointment, so not only did we have him all to ourselves we had the whole damn store which was fantastic.  He even sketched me in my dress with my blue shoes.. Wow I totally forgot to mention that.. thanks for the reminder.  He also painted my blue CL's at the bottom.  I will hang this after the wedding.

LOL, Once I start to pack everything this weekend, I'll be sure to take pictures. I simply forgot to take pictures of a few things when putting them away & moving on. I have quite a few singles who are bringing "friends", couples & newlyweds. So my naughty nite kits include: 4 condoms, 2 dental dams, 2 lubes & 2 VCF films. The saying is. "here's a little something to get you through the nite, so if your gonna do it, do it " Wright" Wright will be my new last name so i tried to incorporate that into many things/sayings.

AWESOME JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE the colors on everything!! I am SO curious now!! What is in this Naughty Nite kit?!?!?

Well, as best I tried to remember everything I didn't. Please charge it to my end of the road transition from planning to packing ;-)  Here are my flower girl bags.  My FG's are 3 & 4 years old which, so I wanted to keep things the same as much as possible as they will be sitting at the same table.  I love my little babies but they are spoiled and not just from me.  So the "I want this, etc.." should be limited as they have the same things.  smile36.gif most of the items were purchased from Michaels & Target with a few things being found at Burlington Coat Factory & Marshalls. 


Their bags

Their little lunch boxes/purses filled with goodies



And everything all together.



I also have Coloring books with stickers that will be at their tables during the reception.  It will hopefully keep them busy if they are not dancing. 


Here is the shell that my son will carry our rings in.  This and the shells that FI and I will pour our sand from (mentioned earlier) were purchased from: conchking.com

My son the ring bearer shell.                                         The inspiration Photo that sparked me to find the shell ;-)



FI & I shell x2, I didn't unwrap the other.  I'm not to sure where I purchased the stands from.  Another BDW bride was going to sell me hers but she only had one.  I'm quite sure I have the email buried somewhere. 



Our Reception table numbers.

Hand painted numbers and bases which I purchased from Michaels.  I used Martha Stewarts craft paints. These will be assembled in Mexico with Gorilla Glue

OMG Coco! You continue to amaze and inspire ALL of us! Thank you for all of your information, hard work, sharing and just plain awesomeness.  We only "spoke" a few times, but you are simply incredible and I think I speak for all of us when I say we are totally excited for you!

    • 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
