    I would definitely be up for it. I'm a very laid back bride though so your expectations may be different from mine. My wedding coordinator is Omeshia, it has been hit and miss as far as her helpfulness/responsiveness .

        I don't know how you girls are staying so cool. I'm losing my mother freaking mind here. Granted, I was cool up until yesterday when I realized it was 3 weeks until we leave. WhaaAAaa?! I'm starting to make last minute decisions like: We need a welcome dinner; NO slideshow - ain't nobody got time for that; and we NEED a wedding video! So yeah, going bride crazy here. I'm finding it simultaneously entertaining though as in reality I'm really prepared and I know I'm just working myself up because I'm anxious to get married.  No card box here and there'd be no room for it. We'll go with the good old fashioned, place your cards on a table. Our luggage weight limits are so restrictive and the penalty is really high (FYI if you're flying Air Transat, look up the weight limits. It's 44lbs/person with a $15/kg penalty!), so I'm trying to be really choosy of what we bring. Plus I'm getting other people to bring stuff for me in a way. Like I asked my SIL to bring hairspray since I knew she would and I only need it for W day. I also have 2-3 days of straight up beauty appointments before we leave. It takes a lot of work to look as good as we ladies do, amirite? lol Jenn - I hope you get everything done on time. You sound like an organized person, so I'm sure you will.  I really hope everyone can come back and give a quick recap of their day and vacation, even if it's without photos. It'd just be nice to hear how things went for everyone as I feel partially invested in all of your weddings and I hope they go wonderfully!

        Good thing you mentioned that $15 /kg....I will make sure to ak more carefully now and ask family to take stuff for me. Did Transat offer you extra weight? We have an extra 10 lbs each
        17 Years in the Making....and we love each other more now then ever!

          Glad to help if I can. I did try to bride charm an extra luggage out of our travel agent but she is a bit useless (although nice). We purchased 'Option Plus' which gives you an extra 10kg per person, as well as seat selection, some alcoholic drinks, snacks and meals on the flight, priority boarding and check-in.

            Last time I went to Mexico we had the exact same forecast.  It was beautiful the entire week.  We had one afternoon where it rained for 20 minutes and that was it.  Blue sky all other times. 

             

            All the best at your wedding, you will have an amazing time regardless!! :)

              i've never been to Punta Cana...but from what I've heard, it rains for 5-10 min and then it stops.  I just hope that doesn't happen every half hour...cuz that would suck.  ESPECIALLY for our pics.  I want blue skies and bright sun....no clouds! I'm gonna keep my fingers and toes crossed.  I am sure we will make the best of whatever kind of weather we get, but i hope, i really really HOPE it's like how you say it was in Mexico!! :S thanks!

                and yes, i am so with you when u say that you're working yourself up but in reality, you're really prepared.  I think that's me...but I spend hours racking my brain on what ELSE i could give myself to do ahahah! that's terrible.  I need a chill pill! or a vacation.  Yes, I need a vacation!!!! 

                 

                I will definitely come back and give my recap on our week.  I can't wait!  Good luck to you!!

                When we were in PC the forecast was exactly what it is now... rain every day, but it turned out that it was an evening shower lasting about 10 minutes... the first day we ran for cover, then we realized that it was a warm rain and was actually nice and refreshing! I am sure that it will be fine (not that it makes it any less stressful but rain on your wedding day is supposed good luck)
