This thread was started in the Dominican Republic thread but I see everyone now is joining in who has an April wedding so I'll put my hat in.  I'm getting married in Grand Cayman on April 19, 2013.

 

My dress is already here as I got it last month from China. I will probably try it on maybe in February to see if I need to make any last minute changes but as of now it fits perfectly.

Hi Uhura congrats and happy planning:) Do you feel you are ready?

 

Lindsey Green: That's awesome we have the same dates! I am actually going to change my January 12 fitting because I want to try to lose a couple more inches before the fitting so I am thinking that the first week of February I will change my appointment for. I feel like there is so much to do but can only do little bits at a time due to money restrictions but its slowly coming together. :) What does your dress look like?

I actually had a mini freak out yesterday when I realized I only have 16 weeks to do everything. I still have to: get my dress altered, choose rings, FI needs to get his suit (been bugging him about this for months), finalize music, write vows, finish DIY projects and OOT bags (have been waiting on final RSVP number for this) and lose 15 pounds. No big deal! Ahhh!

oh you'll be fine!  Most of those tasks are not going to take much time to do. The final headcount thing though, join the club on that lol  I hate waiting for the RSVPs!

My planning is a breeze. Well, with only 14 persons invited and up to 4 expected there is not a lot to worry about. ;)

 

The date is booked, the invitations are sent out.

Got the reception dress this week. Not alternations needed! Will order the ceremony dress next week.

 

Still have to:

- Order FI linen shirt, pants and shorts

- Choose rings

- Choose/write vows

- Make my birdcage veil

- DIY bouquet and bout

- Buy new camera and book rental lenses

 

14 weeks to go and I'm not stressed even a bit. The last month is going to be crazy though with all the final touch ups!

It's driving me nuts! So much of the planning and DIY stuff depends on that final headcount. Money for our hotel rooms is due by Feb 22, 2013 so I still have a bit of time. But that number also affects our budget since our wedding package is for 20 people and we pay extra for every person over that. So far we have about 22 people who have sent in RSVP cards, but hardly anyone has actually reserved a room. And I'm still waiting on many more RSVP cards. Argh!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
