I'm thinking of doing white/coral, or white/blush, with a vintage feel. Not sure exactly how i'm going to blend that in. I went dress shopping unexpectedly (i was in sweatpants, no makeup, and had my glasses on) with my mom a few weekends ago "just to look". My original plan was to pay this lady on Etsy to make a replica of the dress I thought I wanted. Well, once I got THE dress on I couldn't take it off and had to buy it. Ohhhh well, going to have to save money somewhere else.

 

I haven't really figured out any of the other details yet, though I'm trying to decide what I want to do for DIY centerpieces bc there is no way I'm paying >$200 per table. Sent my save the dates out friday!!!!!

 

How about you, how far into planning are you guys?!

 

 

Welcome!!   How is planning going?  Great to hear from another January bride :)

Planning is soooo slow. I am impatient. I like everything done..yesterday...lol

We have booked the time and place but we had issues with our trip provider. We werent happy with some things and now we want to switch ...what a headache.

I started oot bags...love finding deals.

My invitations were sent out about a month ago via email.

How about you ladies? (and any men out there doing the planning?)

Hi brides of Jan 2014!

Congrats!  I loved UMass's dress finding story! So cute!  The weather here in January is generally warm and sunny with water temps around 77F.  Very swimming-friendly!  We occassionally get some North winds come through that can be a little chilly but make for some great sleeping temperatures! Just remember to bring a light sweater out at night.

 

For year-round information about the local weather, check out our CLIMATE - FAQ.

 

Happy Planning!

Sofia

I am doing purple too!...haven't decided the other colour yet. Finally bought the bridesmaid dresses last week. Early but we got them for a fantastic price...

Awwww 25 is also my ideal number. I felt so bad doing a destination wedding at first, because I know some can't go, but we might have a little reception in Michigan (where some family and friends are) after we get back. Haha we invited a lot, and a lot we know for sure won't even come, but didn't want them to feel left out. I don't think I know 137 people hahahaha ;) ;) 

 

I am so glad you found the dress you wanted. I just bought my dress on Saturday...eeeepppp I wasn't going to spend much on a gown because I wanted to do Trash the dress but I ended up falling in love with something too and had to get it...I agree with spending money elsewhere :) I tried on a lot of dresses and soooo knew this is what I had been looking for. Oh my gosh...the centerpieces are redonkulous!! I couldn't even believe it! We sent save the dates out today...oops :/ Are you doing invites?

    • 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!!
