I wad

I have decided I am no longer going to worry about who's coming and who's not as long as my parents, his mother, & my brother are there. Initially I stressed over guest but I can't. If it's just me and my FI then so be it. Right now we have about 20 confirmed. I think more will confirm but like I said I'm not going to stress about it. Those who can't attend can celebrate with us at our AHR and see pics then. I would say try not to worry about your guest count (if you can).
I was in the sand boat I stressed about my guest count but as long as my fiancé gets on that plane I'm good. Lol yes it's important that our parents are there and special ppl in our lives but anyone else they wedding will go on regardless I had to keep telling me self that And not worry bout the little things

Seven months seem like 2mrw to me. Do you feel that way as well? My dress is suppose to be here in December. I'm nervous and very excited about that at the same time. I ordered my dress in the size I am now but I want to Need alterations. So I need to start working out.
I feel the same way! It's going to be here before we know it! As for my dress fittings, I'm also getting started on a workout schedule. I'm super short so my dress will definitely need to be hemmed, I'm just hoping to need some work done in the middle section too! Haha!

Glad I'm not the only one stressing this one. My FI's parents STILL haven't booked. Which I find super annoying bc they say they are for sure coming. My travel agent always makes it seem that usually her brides have more ppl book right away, so she's actually making me feel worse about it. My dress just came in as well! It fits, but will need some contouring. I want to lose 20 too though! Argh, my FI makes it so hard! We are having our engagement photos taken in two weeks and will be doing invites late October, early November. I'm planning to have a little DIY party to put together the passport invites, OOT bags, and possibly some other stuff.

I sent out invitations a while back as we live in London and needed to give quite abit of notice to our friends and family to get to Cancun. I haven't sorted bridesmaids as some of those I would like till haven't confirmed whether they're coming yet. Which is a pain! But hey! Are you guys traveling with guests? And how many do you have confirmed? I feel like it's so close, and only a few of mine have confirmed, getting quite worried that we'll have no guests! Lol xx

OMG!!!! I thought I was the only one experiecing this. My FI's mother has not reserved her room and she just keeps saying she's coming. I'm soooooo frustrated b/c we both want her there and we also can't move forward with our plans for my stepson without knowing if she's really coming b/c he will fly out and stay with her. I'm trying not to stress or nag him or her but I'm secrectly losing my mind. I like the idea of a DIY party. Good idea.

I feel a little better knowing it's not jut my family and friends dragging there heels! I too am trying not to stress so much but it would just be nice to have them all there, also our agent calle to say that flights around our dates were booking up really fast so we need to inform our guests. I've let them all know and a lot of them say they're coming but still haven't booked

I love that I'm able to vent my frustration with other people who are experiencing some of the difficulities that I am. I try not to stress my FI about it but definitely need an outlet. This is a good outlet.

    • 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
