Charlotte, NC Destination Wedding Brides?

Recommended Posts

Wow TrooDIVA, you did very well in your planning so far!! I went to one bridal show and bought a notebook. Who is your wedding planner in Charlotte? I might be interested in that. In addition, where are you getting your real touch flowers. I was going to look into the ones HOBBY Lobby has. My TA is Babs with Wright TA, who has been wonderful!!

Our planner is Shawon McClure-Fields with SDS Events. I can PM her number to you if you'd like. We went with April's floral expression for real touch flowers (found her at a bridal show). I've seen great reviews on your TA. I'm trying to find a wedding website and app for our guests. So much or there to choose from.

Yes, please PM your planner's information. The next big bridal show is in January at the convention center. Will mostly attend, maybe April Flowers will be there. I think I decided to use wedding wire.com for my website. Haven't updated it yet.

Carolina Bridal magazine is free from Dillard's or it may be on the stands in the NorthLake and SouthPark malls. It list the various bridal shows in the area.

Yes, we are taking flowers with us. The flowers are real touch flowers do we are able to take them. We chose Mann Travels because we have used them in the past. They book the rooms and flights for our group. We have our gift registry through them as well. My planner is Shawon McClure-Fields of SDS Events. She is AWESOME!

I just received an email of a bridal event for destination weddings. It will be held Wed. Nov 20, 2013 at the Hampton Inn near SouthPark at Phillips Place. For more information, you can call 704-612-0039. The website is www.abetterplanner.com/events. I registered because they are suppose to be featuring various resorts including AmResorts. My wedding venue is at Secrets Wild Orchid which is an AmResort.

    • 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.
