I have a website which I want people to use more so I dont want to repeat all the same info (I have sections  for "resort info", "travel info", "things to do in Jamaica" etc. (or should I repeat??)

 

We don't have a set day or time for the welcome cocktail reception nor know when to plan a group excursion which makes me reluctant to put an "itinerary" in writing in the formal invitation. I have it all TBD on the site.

 

So far, I just the basic we invite you to ... date...location ...rsvp by ...

I have all of the travel information on my website too but people were still asking questions, how to book the resort, the cost, etc so I ended up including an insert in our invitations that I copied and pasted from my website.  That page cost $1.50/invitation which I think is ridiculous.  If people still can't figure it out I'm not sure what to do for them haha.

 

Other than that I have the standard information (Time, Date, Place, RSVP postcard) and I also included dress code because people were asking already

You're way ahead of me!! LOL i got my dress, the STD and sent those out and some centerpiece things. lol
But trust it will come I made a list and as I do things. I cross them off. If its something ordered. I write down tracking number and beside it ordered. Oncd received I write received ans cross off. One of the only two things I've got left to really do is get hair adornment(thinking of rhinestone bridal comb) and something to wear for white night

I'm WAY behind too!  10 months to go - no dress, save the dates are not out yet.  

 

The only thing we've done is booked the venue, guest list made and wedding website made.  Hoping to get the STDs out within a week and book our photographer and hair/makeup within the next week.  I've been dress shopping twice and have two appointments next week but still no luck!

 

All that being said, the family drama sure has started!!!

Has anyone heard of or used a good videographer in Punta Cana? I am not sure about Antillana which is the company for RIU Palace Punta Cana since they have no examples for me to see before hand.  I just don't want to end up with a bad video of my wedding day, I am willing to pay a little more to get a nice and professional looking video NOT a slideshow of pictures.  Any help would be great!

I might be the only one who doesn't really care if my guests stay as long as me. I can't exactly ask people to pay to go, take time off of their job and say "umm hey so you know...it's also our honeymoon" my Hispanic family would be deeply offended. But again, maybe it doesn't bother me as much because we've already planned for a delayed honeymoon later on and I sold this DW as a huge family vacation anyway.
I feel just as you do. I don't care where they stay. I understand it cab be expensive to where we are. But I did infact let tgem know tgat they are to stay wherever tgey like but that if they stayed off resort what day pass to come to our resort would be. On my actual imvitations I provided my TA name, phone# and email as well as it says sandals whitehouse is all inclusive resort. Ifbyou choose other accommodations, day passes of $135 are requiree

I wish people were understanding. Our parents decided to just stay 3 or 4 nights because they were considerate of about the honeymoon but the friends are selfish
Hellll to the nawwwww!!!!! Lol. What you need to do is explain to fiancee friend that you appreciate his willingness to be there to be supportive but this is not a spring break vacation event. This is your day. Your time. Your wedding week.and if he's a true friend he'll understand.and hubby to be should understand as well. Lol

    • 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.
