I didn't have bruises but the edema was horrible lol.

 

I was shocked at how many people stepped on the dress though - shocked I didn't trip!!

 

The lazy river was the most horrifying hahah may have scratched an elbow and hit my head

OMG not that I care if others care, but I can see myself emotional in tears walking and the flops flipping n loosing my patience lol. TGF barefoot sandals. FYI I am having reception on concrete and don't want to risk stubbing and skinning a toe in celebration mode, so I am switching into dancer ballet flats. The real authentic dancer flats at dancer supply stores. Not paying $30 plus for a pair of flats that might, dig into Achilles' tendon or squeeze foot! $15 dancer supply yes please! Plus when dancing I wanna be able to lift my foot without loosing my shoe!

That's an awesome idea! I've never taken ballet before so please excuse if this is a stupid question but are they quite comfy? I do like the idea of not having to worry about losing my shoes or having pains from lack of arch support or ill fitting shoes. Our reception is also on a terrace with concrete. I wanted heels but not realistic if I'm wearing barefoot sandals. The length of the dress would be all wrong!

There are traditional flat toe performing ballet shoes, that lace. Then there are practice shoes that dancers practice in. I'll find a pic.... And attach hang on

Here is an example. They do not rub pinch or squeeze. They are lightweight and cling to your feet. You can not see them if your dress hits the floor. They are going to on my feet fo sho!

You are a genius! They look so comfy, I'm definitely taking a page out of your playbook and buying a pair :) thanks @@LisaAnthonyPoppy

Hey thanks you two!

I'm gonna go to a local dance supply shop and try them on to know what size and if they are more expensive than $15-$20 bucks I'm gonna order them from discountdance.com but at least I'll know what size and color. Your feet will love you!

They are also starting to make flats similar to these too!

I got a pair - maybe from Aldo - that are so flat you may not want to wear on a road with rocks, but they have an elastic band around them that don't cut it :)

I have also decided on barefoot sandals for my ceremony - but am now wondering 'what if the sand is super hot'....and I end up having to fight the urge to hop down the aisle lol I will probably get barefoot sandals as well as flat/non-flip flop sandals (to avoid floppy sound) just in case the sand is too hot. Maybe I'll send a bridesmaid to go test the sand temperature for me ahead of time lol

    • 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.
