50 Days to go...........

Recommended Posts

So we have 50 days to go.  I feel like this has been the longest year of my life.  I wish I had more then a year to plan everything.  We have been engaged for two years but it took me one year to decide on a venue.  Not funny at all..... Finally I was convinced by a dear friend who is a travel agent to do a destination wedding.  I must say that I am super happy I chose this way. It will end up costing us half of what we would have paid to do a NYC wedding.  We have about 50 guest coming 6 of them are children and 3 teenagers. I chose this resort because I felt it would accommodate all of our needs.

 

My guest are just as excited as we are. The kids can't stop talking about what they are planning to do.  Our wedding will be on a Saturday @ 5pm, we are arriving four days before. Most of our guest will be coming in that Friday, but we do have some that chose to arrive earlier.  As for planning I have been super busy with all of my DIY projects. I am a crafty person so to pay someone else to do my thing would be a no no.  I have fun posting my project on another site I have joined.

We plan to bring our own center pieces, sashes, OOT bags, favor, runners, programs, wedding survival kits etc......

 

I cant wait for our guest to see the goodie bags we have for them. We wanted to thank them for attending our wedding.  I'm about to freak out over our bags.  (Note to future brides don't ship your things, they nay get stuck in customs) I have read nightmare stories about brides who dis so only to have the boxes arrive after they got married) I had to create a bag spreadsheet just to figure out who's bag will carry what. LOL 

 

Personally I can't wait for this to be over with. I just want to put my bathing suit on lay by the pool and sip on a strong drink while I exhaling.

 

 

I"m almost to the finish line. Wish me luck.

    • 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.
