May 2013 Brides

Recommended Posts

We did get travel insurance because while we felt like there was nothing that could prevent us from getting married on May 4, we're both VERY family oriented. A couple years back I lost a very close family member unexpectedly and it shook my entire family. I'm praying that nothing tragic happens to prevent us from getting married on the day we planned; however if either of us were dealing with something like that, we knew we would postpone. We purchased the insurance and advised all of our guests to as well.

Our travel insurance was $80.. We didn't get it though. We got the insurance that covers us medically though, and all of my guests got the cancel for any reason insurance. As for the air prices... We booked ours through our ta when we booked our trip. My ta and others have told me that prices will continue to rise and it is best to book air early, not the other way around. I do know some ladies that have had luck getting great prices at the last min... But I liked the idea of a package deal, including air, van,and resort all in one bundle. Takes some of the trouble out of the way for my guests, and also gets a package rate, which was significantly cheaper.

We purchased and advised our guests to purchase Travel Insurance. I was one of the customers burned years ago when Canada 3000 went out of business abruptly months before our trip. We did get our money back because we purchased travel insurance but it took about a year.  It's better to be on the safe side just in case.

I was wondering where everyone picked out their bridesmaids dresses from. I am really looking for turquoise or Tiffany blue, but haven't found it. I went to Davids Bridal and Alfred Angelo and no turquoise or Tiffany. Alfred Angelo even has a color called blue box which they refered to as Tiffany blue but it's not. I'm torn between continuing to search or just changing my colors. I don't want my bridesmaids to have to spend too much which is why I chose those 2 places to look. I'm getting so frustrated and was wondering what you ladies think.

Dessy.  They are a little pricey but they have a lot of colors and styles.

I wanted my bridesmaids in all white so I did a search on Google for white bridesmaid dresses. I looked at all the images that came up and fell in love with some white Bari Jay dresses I found. I don't know that I would necessarily have thought of Bari Jay had I not seen those dresses as my inspiration. Not sure if that helps or not but that's how I found mine. If these are the colors you really want I would say dont change colors but maybe keep looking for styles you like and then check to see which designers have similar styles in the colors you chose. Good luck in your search!

Emily, We are in the same boat! My colors are Tiffany blue and orange and I couldn't find them anywhere! Dessy has them though, and some other key designers.nobody in my area had swatches though which I really needed cause I've already bought linens ect. I'll get the names of the other designers though for you. But check it out.. Since we couldn't find them anywhere. We just bought a white dress off amazon and are dying it ...ahhhhh! So worried about how it will come out but my BM is not. The amazon seller is ever pretty. Check them out. They have cute dresses, great reviews, and great prices(under 100) :)

i feel like I am falling behind again!  I love the passport, and was debating not doing it but I think you motivated me to get on that!  How did you bind them all together?  Can you send me a link to the $15 download?  Where did you get the paper?

My FI grandpa just passed :(  He was one of the only people who booked his trip.  Its been a rough last week for us.  

My sister is pregnant and going CRAZY!  I feel like I don't even wait her to be my MOH.  Arggg...  

Next on my list is getting Bridesmaid dresses, invites and buying tickets.  I don't know where to find BM dresses.  I would like to avoid David's bridal if I can.  I was thinking maybe looking at etsy.  We are thinking of going to Belize for a few days after we get married.  But, I found out we would have to fly back to the US and then back out to Belize.  Weird. Not sure if its worth it.

I hope I am not on too much of a rant, but you ladies seem to always understand!  Less than 200 days~

    • 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.
