Congratulations on your wedding anniversary and how cool that you decided to come to Mexico to celebrate. Mexico has been in the press lately with the drug wars but this is concentrated in 7 states of which are all inland and on the border. On behalf of tourist destination business owners I would like to thank you for your support by visiting Mexican beaches.

Gracias amiga y felicidades!

Jimmy

Of course its a rainey month and the weather is something I cant control but has anyone visited during this month?
 

woot.gifIâ€m so happy for us BDW May 18th Brides - Bride81, TauruSmith, Angela2013, Eyeball17, (definitely missing a 5/18 Bride in this line up) and now you!  Officially 1 year and counting. Iâ€m definitely not worried about the weather as I have been to the RM twice, once late April the other time mid-May.  And the forecast called for lightning and thunderstorms almost every day of both our vacations but we never saw one drop of rain, and only one morning with a cloudy sky.  Many Locals told us that they never pay attention to the weather until later in the summer because it's always wrong. Hopefully the weather trends similarly in Punta Cana.

Thank you :) I kept meaning join and forgot lol.

 

So far I have booked our wedding date with the resort and I am slowly getting quotes back from our travel agent, I have also designed our invites which I am thinking passport style and I am working on STD's but I can't decide between postcard or magnets. I have finished our website it's www.angandjay.com feel free to check it out and let me know what you think.

i love how on top of this thread everyone is.

 

has anyone started looking at bridesmaid dresses? we were at brooks brother the other day and was told that everything in the store was ALL they were getting for summer.  it made me nervouse since i want coral/orange bridesmaids dresses.  i am not big into "typical" bridesmaids dresses for a beach wedding and would prefer nice sundresses... i also want all my bridesmaids in different dresses but i've had terrible luck finding anything!  i did order a cute dress from anthropologie but thats it!  and i feel like i'v searched everywhere - jcrew, modcloth, anthro, bloomies, macys, nordstrom, lilly, asos, ann taylor, banana, etc.

 

just wondering if any of you have had better luck???

Hey Allie,

 

It sucks that you're having such a hard time with your dress search.  I found my BM dress on dillards.com.  Have you used shopstyle.com to look for dresses by color?  When I typed in coral dress it returned 138 options, and 142 when searching for orange.  Aside from the stores you already listed, I can't think of anything else at the moment.  If I come across something I'll be sure to let you know.

[/quote Try searching on Pinterest. An pictures you find should take you to some websites. Try Aritzia! They had some coral last time I checked. Do you have menodocino and H&M? Try those if you want less formal. Even check American Eagle. They always have lots of sun dresses and can really be dressed up nicely!!

maybe i just don't understand pinterest???  i always see people post cute dresses but the websites always link me to a blog with no mention of where the dress is from!  i did find some lilly (pulitzer) dresses that might work, i ordered a bunch of them today so fingers crossed!

 

thanks for the help!

We're going to look at bridesmaid dresses in two weeks when I finally have all of my girls together (they're scattered across the country). But we're just going to check out what styles they like. I will most likely have to just give them a colour swatch and tell them to find a dress in that colour, since they'll be going back to their cities after that.

    • 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!!
