I bought my dress back in April.... Course I live in way north Alberta and had to make a trip to west Edmonton mall just to find the One I was looking for. It's an Alfred Angelo which is taking 8 months to arrive. So it'll get here in January which gives me lots if time to schedule another trip to Edmonton.... Plus I have some specific alterations/additions I want to get done.

Has anyone gone dress shopping yet? I am dying to go because I already have a few in mind I want to try on but I still think it's a little to early for the dress.
So any day now you could logically start dress shopping and give yourself lots of time so you don't limit you dress options at all.

Yes I am! I am not exactly how my TA was able to do it, but she was able to get us rates back in February! She worked with Air Canada Vacations as well as the resort to find us the best deal. Our guests have just put deposits down so far- they are due July 15. Everyone was very good about it being so early because of the great rate we are getting. Flights should be out very shortly if they are not already. My TA told me that a year ahead they should all be out.

Happy Planning!

Picked up my travel info at the TA work for my site visit on the 25th and she said we should be able to start seeing deals and booking for July 2014 by October!!!! Ahh I already have guests asking me when can they start booking. Definitely can't wait to go dress shopping but I want to shed a few pounds before I go! LOL in the meantime I will continue my shopping spree of wedding decor. Already purchased maracas, starfish for place cards, and passport covers for my bridesmaids and myself. :)

    • 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.
