Sitting here today watching the rain come down... This week has been full of ups and downs... But all in all its been awesome! It's our last full day day here and I'll be back to reality late tomorrow night... I can't believe I haven't taken any pictures really. I'll have a full update and hopefully some pictures soon! And for my TO girls I'll see you Friday for sure! Here's the view right now from my covered ( thank god!) balcony post-268499-144871082673_thumb.jpg

It's all Over!

 

Well I'm back and I wish I was still there! I had the best time and married the Love of my life!! Here's what happened:

 

Day Before Departure:

 

Two of my Bridesmaids & their husbands, my Brother & his gf, and one of Marks friends & his gf arrived a day early. AC had put them up in a hotel by the airport for free because of the earlier trouble they gave me. We decided to stay out there with them. For the girls who live just outside of TO the holiday inn has great Park and travel deal...other hotels must have this too...you stay one night and park your car for 8 days...came to $160 including taxes which was the same as parking at the airport for that long...plus we did have to get up early :)

 

Day 1: Arrival

 

First class plane ride....so worth it! We got a checked luggage allowance of 2-70lbs bags per person which was more than enough so we didn't need to pay extra for baggage to get our wedding stuff there. Plus we got to load the plane first and got see all our excited guest board the plane. The food was actually really good and tons of snacks and drinks. They made an announcement about our seats " Couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary"...lol...they must of gotten it mixed up with another flight.

 

The Punta Cana Airport was crazy...people getting off the back of the plane got a little separated from the group and ended up in the wrong line but we got them to the right place eventually. Thankfully almost everyone used our luggage tags and I start hauling off our luggage and making a pile to make it faster once they all got though customs. My pile also kept the luggage guys off our luggage. We got directed though to a special bus just for us had a big sign that said "Sherry & Marks Wedding"...lol...they used the wrong name for me all week :) but I didn't care.

 

Check in was a breeze...but this is also where some of the bumps started...lol.  They had a special table set up for our group...this time the sign said the Henddderson wedding...spelled my name wrong and left off the hubby's name completely...oh well...but that did turn into the running joke of the week...it was actually pretty funny. Make sure if you have first time all-Inclusive travellers with you that you mention how important it is to print all your travel Itineraries and hotel vouchers...they don't accept things on mobile phones there. We had two people who didn't think to print it but we got that straightened out. This is also where the FI's mom lost her mind..just before check in she realised she left her dress for the wedding at home. This a a dress that the Fi's Sister who passed away had helped her pick out. Between all the crying we did manage to get her checked in.

 

They gave us a upgraded room in the newest building....very nice...the only downside was it was at the opposite side of the resort from everyone else. looking back on it now I think I would of preferred to be close to everyone rather than get an upgrade...we wasted a lot of time getting back and forth from out room (10min walk, 1 way, from everyone else).  Me and one of the other girls assembled the wedding welcome bags...everyone loved them...I noticed people using the bags all week, as well as the sunglasses and first aid kits.

 

Day 2 Bachelorette Party

 

coming next...

Hey! Welcome back! I didn't get the chance to wish you "happy wedding day" so even though it's done I'll say it now - happy wedding day! I hope it was everything you hoped for and more!! Can't believe you're back already!! Wow. Where did the time go? And you've already started your review!! Geez....... I'm so far behind I'll never get caught up. I'm hoping to feel better by Friday to make it for the meet so I'll get the chance to hear all about it hopefully!! Can't wait to see photos!! We still don't have ours yet but I'm really hoping soon!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
