Missb's Isla Mujeres wedding - March 17, 2013

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the encouragement, mstigger!  It's killing me not to go have my dress altered right now, I'm not a patient person with stuff like that.

 

The shot glasses came!  They're a gift from my Mom, 8 of them, one for each of our guests:

The toe rings and acrylic tumblers came, too.  I did not like the stick-on letters I got for the cups, they weren't staying well, so I ordered vinyl letters from an etsy seller.  She's doing full names instead of just single letters, and all 8 names were only $10.  I tried my dress on with my shoes and jewelry, and love love love the necklace and shoes with the dress.  I didn't realize the earrings were clip-ons, however, and one of them came apart.  I hate clip-ons, so although I could fix the one earring, I went ahead and ordered others from another etsy seller.  They're teal and rhinestone 16mm rounds and I think they'll be perfect with the necklace.  My MOH friendship bracelets have been shipped, so those should be here today and tomorrow.  I can't wait to give hers to her, I love her so much, and I know it will be a special moment for us.  Her husband is our BM, they still are on the search for what they're wearing... I left it up to them.  Oh, and the beach bags themselves came in.  They're much bigger than I thought they would be since they were only $9.00 each!  Instead of having them monogrammed, I bought iron-on letters at JoAnn's in colors that coordinate with each bag's handle.  I'll have to get pictures of those.

 

Today I'm going to order the personalized cigar bands, next week Dave and I will go to a cigar shop and get some higher-end cigars.  Dave said to wait until we get to Mexico so we could buy Cubans, but I know we won't want to stop at duty-free on the way in and I want the bags ready to be put on each guest's bed as soon as we get there.

 

Everyone's flights are booked... we get in super early in the morning with one couple (same flight), we'll have time to catch the ferry to Isla, drop our luggage at the house, hit the grocery store for wine and some essentials, and get back to the ferry dock to pick up the other two couples whose flights land right around 11am.  We're trying to decide if we just want to grill dinner at the house that first evening since we want it to be low-key as the wedding is the next day.  Our group likes to party, and we don't want to be dragging the next day.

 

I can't believe we're about 40-something days away!!!

Wow, I haven't updated this in a while!

 

So much has happened.  Yesterday we got married at the courthouse :) .  It was much better than I thought it would be, the judge cracked some jokes, we both said our heartfelt "I do"s and we had a wonderful afternoon and night afterwards.  Here we are at the courthouse, in front of the adult probation department cheesy.gif :

I picked my dress up from the seamstress today, I'm so happy with it!!  She added a hook at the top of the back so that it's easier for zipping.  It needs steamed, but I'm going to take it and have that done once we get to the island.

 

We leave in 8 days, and we're pretty much all set.  I have my nail, pedi, and eyelash appointment the day before we leave.  The kennel has our reservation for our puppy, Julio, we're going to miss him so much, but he'll be well-taken care of.  The photographer and ceremony are both paid for, and I'm working out the final details with the restaurant for dinner afterwards.

 

We're getting so close!!

    • 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
