What travel loving girl doesn’t love a destination wedding? I know we do!
Monique and Jonathan wed in La Romana, Dominican Republic at Dreams Punta Cana Resorts & Spa.
They’re gorgeous colour scheme was based off the colours in a peacock feather. Monique explains, “The Dominican is a beautiful island with wild peacocks everywhere, so we incorporated the feathers into our theme, right down to my peacock blue Badgley Mischka shoes.”
What made your wedding unique?
“It was on the beach after sunset with our closest relatives and friends. Our feet were in the sand, surrounded by palm trees, and we even had fire works to kick off the dance party.”
Did you DIY any details?
“The sandbox that held our wedding favors was made by my father-in-law. We also attached tags to each favor that I put gems onto (peacock colours of course) and attached with twine and ribbon.”
What was your biggest challenge?
“Fitting all of the reception decor, favors, etc. into a suitcase and getting it to the Dominican in one piece. Along with bringing my wedding gown onto the plane.”
What was your favourite moment?
“Having 50 of our closest family and friends make the trip with us.”
What’s your advice?
“Breathe. It’s one day and one of the best days. Don’t stress the small things because in the end you’re marrying your best friend and that’s all that should matter.”
Big congratulations Monique and Jonathan and thank you for sharing your wedding pictures with One Stylish Bride.
