put them on your anniversary dessert every year!

 

I was thinking about doing these little birds in our color scheme (maybe a purple and silver), but $60 seems like a lot of money for something I'll never use again.  LOL

Great idea! or make them into Christmas tree ornaments to hang on your tree every year :) You could even get something with the date of your wedding on it and add it to them! That would be cute!


That's what I was thinking but some women I have talked to have ALL their planning done and I'm like whoaaaaah, should I be more ahead than I am? But you are right 7 months is plenty of time. I just know the summer is going get busy quick and before you know it, months will have flown by. The last month did that's for sure!

I'm getting down to the wire (less than three weeks) and I'm leaning toward not doing a cake topper at all (just flowers). Nothing is really thrilling me and I don't want to have a cake topper 'just because'.  (We're also paying for the wedding out of pocket and all of these expenses are killing me! LOL)

I FINALLY GOT IT TOGETHER!!!!

 

I contacted Daymar from BV, and we are putting our deposit down! 

 

She recommended transportation roundtrip from party?something other (forgot the company) for $180.  if anyone can recommend any cheaper that would be great!!!   Once we get to the location, we'll be riding horses to the actual club, but stopping to do some snorkeling! :) Yeah, pretty awesome.

 

Our small group will be hanging out on the beach, drinking, eating for a bit, and I'm hoping to sneak off at some point to start getting ready for our wedding.  I'm sincerely hoping that there is some type of full length mirror in the bathroom so I can check to see what I look like before exchanging my vows.   I will be doing my own hair and make up.  Yeah, you can say we're kinda doing this non traditional.  This is what's keeping me cool at this point, it's about us, not about anything or anyone else.

 

Cocktail hour is in order after the ceremony, while we take our pictures.... then off to town for a pizza party! YESSSSS

 

Can anyone recommend someone for transportation if cheaper than the rate I was given?  Someone who does symbolic ceremonies?  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Well, I kind of dropped the ball on the entertainment (LOL).  So far, I'm still doing the mariachi band for cocktail hour, and we have a churro cart coming as well as a pinata.  If we have enough time/budget, there is the possibility of getting an acrobat, although I have NO idea what that would look like! LOL  Another fun thing might be a caricature artist, depending on your crowd.

Brownsugarbride, i'm excited for you.. your big day is around the corner :)

When are you planning on breaking the piñata? Will it only be you and your fiancé breaking it?  Maybe children and others? Blind folded?

So excited for the other brides!

 

Lydia, exciting that you booked the venue. Daymar is great to work with.

 

How many people are you having again? I think she recommended Party Planet, that's who she recommended for us and we are using them for some décor and the DJ.

 

P.S - The FI veto'd the mariachi band at this point as we most likely will have closer to 85 coming, not 55 like we originally thought. Crazy how that creeps yp on you. We are going to revisit it come August when the RSVP's come in and if they are still available, we will book them if it's within budget..

 

What are you guys doing for centerpieces? I am now trying to figure out what to do... I was going to do lanterns but the weight of them in my luggage plus the OOT bags is too much. I was thinking babies breath in spray painted gold mason jars?

    • 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.
