  1. whats up Nicy? you ok? Â My Husband had a Navy Suit and White shirt for the wedding. he was DETIRMED to wear the Jacket, wouldn't hear anything about it. on the day, not a jacket to be seen! it's just too hot! the ushers/dads had Navy Trousers and short sleeved shirts. they melted too! it's just so hot (although, we made a boo boo and bought lined trousers! haha! doh!)
  2. Morning girls  everyone ok today? i am going to attempt to post my review today. does anyone know how many photo's you can post per post? i am preparing it in word, with links, then will copy and paste! x
  3. Hey! It was soooooooo fabulous! i promise to get my review up soon, it's so huge!! xx
  4. that is soooooooooooooooooooo bad! how appalling. i really would recommend people book their holidays through a TA, but the wedding direct with the hotel, you have so much more control! Â great minds on the music! Â fab news on the dress! WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Â as for the wedding time, is there a reason you want 3pm not 4pm? 4pm will be cooler (slightly!) Â hahahahahahahaha! that made me snort! Â
  5. Hey  i must say i never found the heat a problem with my hair at all. i bought GHD's from the states so they'd get hot, and i had a 'shine and anti humidity' spray from KMS that i used. every night my hair 'pretty much' stayed straight! my mum on the other hand looked like diana ross! i guess it just depends on your hair. i have fine, thin hair and it was fine. if you have a lot of hair it might be a different story!!  I found song choices the HARDEST part of the whole wedding planning! they set the mood of your ceremony and are very important. don't rush the decision, take your time and listen to the words. we had  Bridesmaids entrace - Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamajkhgasifhaifhaghe'ole! it was beautiful, so perfect, everyone cried! haha!  My entrance with my parents - Here, There and Everywhere by The Beatles, but a steel drum version  Signing the Register - Heaven by DJ Sammy, the chilled one. so lovely!  The Kiss/You are now Husband and Wife - At Last by Eta James  Walking out/Confetti throw - God Only Knows by The Beach Boys  First Dance - Songbird by Eva Cassidy  Second Dance - By Your Side - Sade  Â
  6. the MOH dress was from coast, but she got it from lightinthebox (i think) and it was only £60! it was soooooooo gorgeous on, she looked like a film star!
  7. the AHR was just amazing! the pro pics should be here next week, but i have some of my friends pics, i'll post them tonight! Â xx
  8. Love love love your pens and luggage tags, how fabulous!!! it's going to be great! you really should become a vendor! x
  9. Â Are you getting married at The Moon Palace? I would just say in an email to your WC that you have a guest coming on the day of the wedding, staying one night, but you want them to be there from say 11am on the day, but they don't need thier room until 3pm (or something along those lines) and they will be fine. don't mention anything about them being a photographer, they're just one of your guests. it'll be fine and dandy one night is PLENTY! Â I did! he was great, i would recommend. i only used him for buttonholes, corsages and confetti but it was perfect! and 30% of the cost of the MP!! GO EXTERNAL!! x Â

  11.  Thank you!  Hair - well. in the heat, outside, it just doesn't last. no matter what. i used everythign i could, but if fell out within about 1 hour. i put it up for the reception because 1. it was getting a bit limp and 2. i was sweating to death! haha! are you having your hair down? my advice is to hairspray it before you curl it, and after! but have a contingency plan to put it up later. i did pop back to the room at one point for another curl up, but again, it didn't last long!!  OMG that bag is sooooo beautiful, and what a bargain!! i didn't have a bag on the day (I gave everything to my mum, she had a huge beach bag full of things, including flat shoes for us to change into, make up bag etc etc) but i had a bag on Sunday at our AHR, and just had a lippy, some breath spray (lots of kissing people!) and some perfume in it! it's gorgeous!  they are SOOOOOOOOO lovely! are they fake? they are gorge! you should sell them! i would of definitely bought some!!   Yeah, i invested in some really good stuff. i bought mine from SpaceNK, it's Laura Mercier and it lasts and lasts and lasts! but you can get cheaper alternatives. i advice you going into a big department store and being done up by the counters and seeing what you like  have you tried those 'blotter' sheets for your chin? they're good!  it is, she's soooooooo great (laura) tell her i recommended her (louise woods, now pask!) she will make things to your design, she was brilliant!  Thank you!!     weird! i'll post a few more at the bottom of this thread  Quote: Originally Posted by roo66 "Oh Nicky thats really sweet of you yes please,but where do i put it lol" Girls. i have one! i am happy to start off the passing it along thing? i put mine in my bra! hahaha! cause i didn't have time to think abotu it really!  they are both gorgeous. and there is no such thing as 'too bling'!!  got your email, i'll reply now  Quote: Originally Posted by *lyndsey* roo you deserve a medal! I agree with michelle, get yourself a glass of wine at the earliest opportunity x I agree 100% Roo you need wine! you poor thing!  Fans are SUCH a good idea! buy fans girls!!   I'll post a few more pics, i am 'nearly' finished on my review, it's fooking huge! will hopefully post today/tomorrow!  Â
  12. i don't know what happened with the layout of that! sorry!
  13. I think you could be right about the heat - I was there in June (Grand Mayan, Mayan Riviera) and it was bloody hot then! We had a number of days with rain as tropical storm Alex hit while we were out there. Did you get any rain? Maybe a gazebo would be better -we have some oldies in our group hence we are going to Mexico instead of Thailand (We were trying to find a venue half way between NZ and UK) and Im a bit worried aboutthem standing round in the heat. We are looking to get married Saturday 6th August, which I believe is about a year and 1 week after you So how did you book yours then? I think we are going to invite 50 but I know what its like, probably 25 of them will turn up which is just fine by us. I just think they are all talking about staying in other resorts or moving about and I feel really confused and not comfortable with saying Oi! You have to stay here and you have to book it like this! LOL I'm a bit of a panicker and my friends keep telling me I have to stop thinking of everyone else How did your flowers turn out? Who did your pictures? Thanks for this, I really hope you wont mind me bombarding you with questions for the next few months at least! Cant wait to see your report I would go for the Gazebo. honestly it's still very beautiful, and in your photo's you'll still see the beach and sea behind you, but it will be so much more comfortable for everyone involved!! the first day it rained ALL day, constantly! we were like 'uh oh' but it was totally fine after that! the day before the wedding it rained for about 1 hour, that's it! We booked ours through a travel agents, but we just said to people 'this is the date, this is the venue, you have to stay at The Moon Palace for at least THAT night but go ahead and do what you want' and they did just that! we were lucky, we had 31 stay at The Moon Palace, and my Brother and his Wife booked to stay at The MP just the night of the wedding. we had two guests stay elsewhere and we booked them day passes for the day. In hindsight I would of spoken to our TA and asked them to sort out a group contract. i don't really know how they work tbh, but the benefits you get, it's worth it. speak to the people you KNOW are going to book and ask them what they want to do. they can always stay somewhere for say 5 nights, and then one or two nights at The Moon Palace if they don't want to spend too much money. the 'only' problem with that is, for our guests that did that, when they moved back to other hotels they wanted to come back to the MP! haha! but the free private events thing is worth trying to get What package are you doing at MP? i went complimentary and my bouquet was gorgeous! really lovely! the other flowers we got from Marvin at Maya Diseno Floral marvin@mayadisenofloral.com.mx who was fab. we had no probs with external vendor and it was 66% cheaper than the MP!! we had a friend in our party who took lots of photos, but we hired David Pena from The Moon Palace and he was good. nothing spectacular, but i'm glad we got some pro ones. if you have the budget, i would advise going external, but if you dont or if you're like me and not too worried about the pics, resort photographers are fine! our DVD is soooooooooooooooooo brilliant! if you can only do one, do the DVD!! ask away, i love to talk about it and im bored at work! xxxx
  14. i've uploaded these to the UK brides thread:   I now pronounce you, husband and wife!  the whole crew  me, my husband (aww) and my brother and his wife on the rooftop bar (where we had drinks, and our first dance)  cigar time!   i'm working on my review, it's absolutely huge!! any questions though, fire away! x
  15. ok, a few things i found  1. the beach wedding is gorgeous, so pleased we did it. But it's HOT!!! really hot!!! some of the gazebo's are air conditioned and that might be a smarter move!! The Catholic Chapel (where they were going to move us to if the weather was bad) is the best i think, beautiful views and glass walls so it stays cool! If you deffo want to go for a beach wedding, pay extra for some umbrella's for people! and after the wedding when you have pics, have an umbrella set up to the side (with some cold water) for you both to run under inbetween pics!  2. I WISH I had set up a group contract. why don't you speak to some travel agents about it? you don't have to book directly with the MP then, but it's definitely best to book as a group. I know it's not as convenient as doing 'as you go' but honestly, it's worth it. how many people do you think you'll have going? when you have a certain number of room nights etc you get free events. it's sooooooooooo worth it. that's the only regret i have from the entire process!  fire away with questions! i'm bored at work! xxxx
