What brand of extensions will you be using? Do you swim and can it get wet??

To do in no particular order in the next 4 weeks:

Purchase another bandeau bikini (need to avoid tan lines for the first 3 days)

Complete Reception playlist (songs chosen but not organized)

Complete mock-ups for WC use

Get E-Ring polished and photo ready

Purchase frames for all signage (picked out, just need to make the trip)

Figure out veil situation (maybe alterations)

Contact USPS to hold mail delivery for 2 weeks

Contact banks for out of country transactions

Order Bouquet charm

 

Items with hard dates:

04/20 Mail remaining Pre-Travel Packages (half were hand delivered to guest in Portland and Seattle)

04/20 2nd fitting and groom alterations

05/11 Hair Extensions Install

05/12 Complete all packing

05/12 Brazilian

05/14 Shellac Mani/Pedi and Fresh set of lash extensions

05/15 Depart for Mexico

 

On another note, my guestbook puzzle cam in today... very happy with it!

We are just doing a card box for the AHR, we told people no gifts so I feel like it sends the wrong message. I'm sure people will bring cards but they can just go on cake table/next to guest book, etc. not gong to worry about bringing a box for them.

I am now wondering if I should put more in their bags.  I got them bikinis (Fig Leaves), flip flops (Havaianas - they're the BEST), necklaces (Etsy), and bags (Vistaprint).  Maybe I will pick them up magazines in the airport or lotion at Bath & Body Works.  BTW, I LOVE the robes.  I really wanted to do robes until one of my bridesmaids happened to get me and my maid of honor robes for the holidays.  I quickly had to change my plan and went with bikinis instead.

I also got my bridesmaids robes!! Looks like we may have used the same seller silkandmore? I got myself a white and they got dark purple. I love the robes!!!

 

Thanks Girls!  

 

Yes I got them from Silkandmore.  The owner was so great!  The robes came all the way from India and it only took 2 weeks?  Maybe a little longer.  I washed and steamed them when they arrived.  They fit the girls perfectly - such a hit.  I can't wait to take photos of us wearing them the morning of the wedding!

My Tech uses the  Resse Roberts lash extension line.  I honestly have never gone swimming in them, but then again I started getting them installed this past January I don't live in a warm enough climate to swim during the winter months.  I have been in jacuzzis, saunas and shower daily without any issues. the pic below is my beofre and after pic.  I may go with a fuller set for the wedding, we'll see.

I'm gonna show some ignorance here... but are those "eyelash extensions"?  I didn't even know such a thing was possible.  Where do you get something like that done, how do they do it?  Everything about this is surprising to me.

Has anyone had experience with Events Wedding Cancun and/or Raffaele with Mayan hospitality? We booked them for decor and they seem very nice and reliable! Just want to know if anyone has ever worked with them! Let me know!!

I'm filling out my DJ info form.  Sorting out all of the special songs.  For father/daughter, mother/son dances are you guys dancing for the full length of your songs?  I want to do The Best Day (Taylor Swift), but it's 4 min 10 sec.  Feel like it's a bit long ... but maybe I'm wrong.  I'm just being conscientious of how little time we have for the party (8:30-11pm).

    • 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!!
