Aww. Everything looked really great!!! Also, your belt looks perfect. I think it will look really nice with your dress. You ended up doing the maracas afterall! I think you were on the fence about it if I remember correctly? 

They were a nice touch at the wedding and although overdone sometimes, people really enjoyed them and had a lot of fun with them haha. There were definitely some drunken maraca moments.

 

As for the tags, we ordered ours from an Etsy vendor online. It was the same one that Rebecca used (Veryvalentine). I was extremely happy with mine and they were the perfect size (smaller and not overpowering the maraca). The shop was called smiling tag.. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SmilingTag?ref=l2-shop-info-avatar

We went with the "not as nice" saying (apparently).. "shake for a kiss". It was cute, although annoying at times because people went overboard with it haha. Everytime we weren't kissing people were dramatically shaking them at us during the reception.

@@deecol Thanks Dee! My girls went above and beyond :)

 

@@snswedding2016 Thanks Steph! I couldn't be happier with the whole shower.

 

@ Thanks Perian! I can't wait to see my belt sewn on. That should be completed Saturday when I go for my third fitting. For those following my seamstress fiasco, things were 1000x better fitting number two. I had a different seamstress that spoke English and other than her trying to convince me to put massive cups in my dress, she seemed to see and "get" my vision. I'm actually excited for my next fitting.

 

You're right - I wanted to do something other than maracas because my SIL had done them. In the end we went with them because 1. they're adorable 2. they'll add colour to the tables and 3. at the end of the day it doesn't really matter if my SIL had them - there isn't a ton of overlap on our guest list. Thanks for sending me your tag vendor. I was seconds away from ordering from SmilingTag when I double checked the shipping policy. For the first time in planning I'm worried something may not make it in time. Oh my gosh. Times been cut short! I found a few local vendors though - none with designs as cute, but I'll probably go with them so I can be sure I get the tags in time.

 

Some Updates

 

We received our song lyric print. The vendor was so sweet. She asked why I was doing ordering black font seen as how everything else I bought from her was gold. When I said so I could use it again side by side our guestbook map in our house, she offered to do the print in black and gold for no extra charge. She said it was the least she could do seen as how we live in Canada and I'm paying her in USD lol So kind!

The bow ties arrived yesterday. The pink isn't the same as the girls dresses but it's light enough that I think it will look great. It's actually an exact match with the girls flowers so I think the contrast is perfect.

 

Here is my artsy attempt at photography - Mike's wrinkled blue pants, the bow tie, gold mercury vase & a bouquet.

I need to get back into wedding mode. I figure once I get my shower cards completed (deadline is the weekend) then I'll be able to cross even more off our list.

Does anyone know where I can buy beautiful fake baby's breath? I want to add a tall vase with a little bit of baby's breath to the tables but haven't had any luck finding it. The Michaels I've checked didn't have nice baby's breath. Please let me know if you have any ideas! I guess I could buy real when I get there. I'll reach out for a price at the resort too.

@@ashhtayy your lyric print is beautiful, it's going to be such a nice keepsake for you guys after the wedding! Love the pink bowties and I agree that the lighter colour will be a nice contrast to the dresses. 

 

As for baby's breath, I didn't see any when I was on the hunt for wedding decor but I feel like if anyone would know it would be @:)

@@snswedding2016 Thanks so much, Steph :)

 

Day of Presents for Parents and Nonna

 

Omg I'm in love with these hankies. We ordered from etsy vendor LarkspurAndLinen and I cannot wait to receive them!

 

We were able to customize the frame, hankie edge, colours and names (obviously!). The images I've attached are the samples but you get the idea. I picked up one for Mike as well that says "it was always you".

@@ashhtayy Oh I LOVE the hankies!! I was thinking about getting those for our mums too before we found out they couldn't come to Mexico. They are going to love them! Take pics when they arrive! :)

@@ashhtayy Such cute hankies!!!  What a great idea  :) They'll love them!

 

Isn't it crazy when you hit that moment where you want to order something but it won't arrive in time?  That means you're super close!!!

Love everything!!! I really want song lyrics for my house :)

I also agree it's fun and exciting and scary when you've hit a spot when it's risky to order from the states!

    • 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
