Snswedding2016 Planning Thread - Jan 9 2016 (Azul Fives)

First off, on your flowers - I'll be honest. I really like them with your shades of blue. And I don't think anyone will notice because I think they'll match really well. If anything it will set off the shades of blue quite nicely! Blue is my favourite colour so I always like finding colours that will look nice with any shade of blue and set it off and I think your flowers will do that.

 

Your shower looks like it was a great time! You definitely have some special people on your side! I'm sorry your mom couldn't make it. I'm sure she was there in thought and hopefully she's better soon. Unfortunately it's that season again.

 

Woohoo! Bachelorette at Remington's! Sounds like you'll have a great night!! lol

You have such wonderful friends and family to organize such a fun bridal shower. And I laughed too about having your 90 year old grandma see embarrassing things.

 

And since no one else has asked, I'm curious what those pink things were. What were they?

 

Can't wait to hear about your stagette!

Thanks ladies!! It really was a great day!! My mom is feeling much better today...of course...murphy's law. It's all good though- I'm glad she's feeling better and I gave her a play by play of what happened yesterday. 

 

@@Wafflesmom @@calgarybride2015 haha I knew some of you might be curious - they are "silicone advanced nipple suckers"...there was also a throat numbing spray in that gift bag :blink: (am I even allowed to write about these things on this forum?!? Sorry if that was too vulgar!). Needless to say I turned a bit red with my 90 year old grandma watching me open this gift and we all had a good laugh!

Here is a pic of the guestbook my girls made for me for my shower. They had set up a backdrop and all my guests took pics with the instamax polaroid and each made a page in my book. I love it! There are some empty pages so I'm going to print some pics from the shower and put them in the album.

Favours

We've been going back and forth on ideas for our favours. We're doing welcome bags but wanted to do something small for the reception that kept with our love story theme. I really wanted to do book page bookmarks but found the only way to make them durable is to laminate them and I always finds it makes it look a bit too shiny and a little cheap looking. So we mulled over a couple ideas when I found these really cute dictionary magnets and both Sean and I loved them! They are super easy to make. All you need is a dictionary some glass beads (I went for the larger ones in the mosaic aisle in Michaels), decoupage glue and some magnets!

 

I really love the way they turned out. I originally bought strip magnet because it was cheaper and hoped it would be strong enough....not so much. I'm going to have to go back to Michaels and get the stronger circular magnets.

 

I've done about 2/3 of the magnets I need. Here is the first batch:

I really love those magnets. I love magnets anyways so to get to add another to my collection for such a good memory is awesome. It's a great idea :)

 

The Photobook is so sweet! What a nice memory for you

    • 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.
