I agree I feel like I should be doing everything  now!  but I dont even have final numbers yet, so starting on thinks like favors and welcome packages etc is getting way ahead of myself!  But I am starting to organize things that I want to go!!  So its a start at least

Rachel - I wish I could've tried to make my own real touch flower bouquets but I'm not the craftiest of people. I got mine from Bloom Bridal, their work really looks amazing.  I'll post a few pictures when they arrive.  I think the dress was the hardest part for me, so don't worry, at least your wedding isn't until June.  You've got plenty of time still girl.  :relief:

 

How are people handing out their OOT bags?  Before the wedding, on check-in, having the resort do it?  I saw a quote on our resort's wedding coordination spreadsheet and they said they'd charge $20 per room to hand out items for us.  There's got to be a mistake there.  If that's the case, we'll just go visit everyone's room ourselves.

I am not crafty either... i am not even going to attempt to make my own bouquets LOL I have seen bloom bridal's photos, they do exquisite work!

 

We will likely hand out the OOT during our "Welcome" dinner/cocktail hour (which is the night the majority of my guests arrive). $20 seems really high! Our resort is only $3/room. If it were $20, i think i would definitely just hand them out in person, thats just crazy!

Will you be bringing your welcome packages and giving it to them at the resort?  I am torn about this because depending on the amount of guests, I don't know if I'll have enough room.  Especially since we're bringing a lot of decorations with us.

:s I am planning to try and make my own bouquets.  At my resort it will costs us $30 per bridesmaid!  Also I was going to use their bouquets part of the reception décor after.

 

I should probably try and see if I can even do it! Lol.

    • 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.
