June 2013 brides- what are you doing?

Recommended Posts

I actually emailed my mother this morning to tell her that we need to get together to figure out what we have done and what still needs to be done.

 

I still haven't found my OOT bags but have started to buy things for them, I know that I need to still try to figure out table centerpieces. I hate that I have a ton of ideas and haven't finalized anything yet bc I still think I have a ton of time but really I don't!

 

One thing that I really need to start focusing on is the ceremony. What are most of you girls doing for the ceremony...are you coming up with your own script? If so is there somewhere that has some suggestions as to what it should look like??

I asked my WC for a copy of the words and boy oh boy am I happy I did because WOW! Lol! Needless to say I'm changing a lot of it and correcting grammar etc so our guests understand what's being said! Lol

I am like you although I have the bags, I just need to get what is going inside them!! So far we just have the beer steins, candle for the room and sunglasses. I have so much to get done in some many areas! haha

 

As far as the ceremony script...at our resort the WC's conduct symbolic weddings...but I wanted a religious ceremony and so i hired a local missionary pastor who is of the same religion as me and he sent me two different scripts- one more traditional and one more contemporary. Both are beautiful! But that saved us having to write our own in order to include what we wanted. Maybe look into that if your resort doesnt offer what you are looking for.

The bridal salon called and said my dress should be here by the end of this month! I am so nervous cause I havent tried it on since August of last year!! And it has been a rollercoaster of "did i pick too fancy of a dress" "should i have gottens omething more beachy" "Is it even me?!" it drove me crazy!!  I hope i love it as much as i did that day!

Natalie, I never even thought to ask for a script of the ceremony from the hotel...yet another reason why this site is so great for connecting brides!

Did anyone read this article? The average cost of a wedding in 2012 was $28,427! That is insane! $76,687 if you live in NYC!

Makes me so happy we chose to go another route!

    • 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!!
