She answers everything i ask her about. if I call her, she calls me back promptly and when i email her, same in her responding to me. i thought i was going to be pulling my hair out, but i'm actually smooth moving.(I say that now). Still haven't decided yet whether i'm doing the oot bags  yet. thinking maybe just for my  wedding party.

the sandals whitehouse looks amazing!!! That location was my first choice if I went with sandals but i have a lot of single friends coming so that ruled out sandals.

 

that's great to hear the communication is going well and the wc is on top of thigns

Are all of you using a TA for your guests? Can they get better rates than if they booked themselves? We are planning a small wedding (inviting only 22 people and not sure if all are making it) so not sure if we can get group rates for so few rooms?

They are outside and don't have shadows and all that nonsense going on. I am also thinking about doing a trial run with her.. like an engagement shoot. I haven't talked to her or my FI yet about this but we will see. Of course I need my ring first!! HAHa we had a VERY informal "engagement" so now I am just waiting for the romantic profession of love (and the ring) to come!!

 

Anyone else??

wow! do you have any idea if it is happening soon?? you HAVE to let us know when it happens!!!

HAHAH you two are funny!! I love your idea! Not sure it will work because I am sure the STD will go out before I get my ring.

 

However.... I do plan on buying him a watch as an engagement gift... I hope to get it soon (just trying to decide which one to get - I want to get him the one he will wear for the wedding so I need it to be THE Perfect watch) He his very picky about his watches and has a very nice collection.. Anyways.... I hope to have the watch before he gives me my ring SOOoooo that I can give it to him and say "It's about Time!" I was even thinking about getting that engraved on the watch (if it is a watch that can be engraved)

 

You idea would be much cheaper though HAHA Hmmmm.......

such a cute idea!

I think they will understand that! hahahah

haha totally! he tunes out after 10 minutes!

but boy, I can't keep up with you ladies either! I think once I finally set a date and resort, I will have more to contribute but getting advice and support (and laughs) from you is so priceless!

cute!!! great job on the maracas!

 

I think the streamers are cute too - I think the guests will either leave them on the chairs if there is a cocktail hour in between or bring them to the reception if that's right away depending on how far it is. I would think people would use the maracas more bc it's fun with the noise

I have become diy queen and finished my first project maracas that will be placed on place setting (shake for a kiss/party prop) 400

Then for the ceremony I was planning on making these paper cones for confetti
400

Until I saw this!!!
400

Looved the idea so much that I went to Michaels and went to purchase the materials to make them BUT now I'm thinking what will the guests do with them after the ceremony? Throw them out? Take them to the reception? But then they would have the same use as the maracas won't they?? Should I just have both?

You guys are definitely my support and inspiration!

 

you all have definitely become my sheros

those that are singles.. better get together and share a room. lol and cut the expense down. i have single friends and that's what i suggested to them or they will pay smae for one person as if they were two.. lol but i knew when i lookje at it , it was where i wanted it. so i didn't change my mind, plus it had all the amenties i wanted plus was less expensive than most places, was all oceanview and private balconies.

    • 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
