    Congrats!!!!! You all look amazing :)

    Hi Ladies

     

    I have written this 4 times now and every time the computer freezes and I loose it arrrhhhh

     

    Anyway i'm now a happily married women

     

    Well to start with all you ladies getting married at Sensatori you are very lucky ladies, the resort is absoultly amazing and the staff are great.

     

    We got upgraded to the Honeymoon suite on our 3rd day as they had allocated us the wrong room, the Thomsons staff were great there. Our room was 4332 and we had a lovely view of the beach so I got to watch alot of weddings before ours. We had our blood tests at 9am the day after our arrival then another meeting at 1pm. We were gutted as we had to change our witnesses as they needed to send our info of before our original witnesses arrived even though my OS WC had said it was fine. Our wedding was the only wedding on our date which was great as on some days there was 3/4 weddings a day. After watching some other weddings we decided to move ours from the beach to the rooftop. Our reasons were because the beach was quite small and you had alot of random walkers by who didnt care if a wedding was going on and people all stood up the top watching (if you get married on the beach ask them to make sure the top is clear for you or you'll end up with the spectators in your photos) where as the roof was totally private even though it did cost us an extra £1000 . We then kept changing our reception from the Zavaz Plaza to the beach then back to the Zavaz Plaza.

     

    The day before I had my acrylic nails done in the salon, this was lovely a bit of time on my own. The morning of the wedding my bridesmaids and me went for champagne breakfast together in Spoons, this was a nice start to the day. Then at 11am my mum and I went to the spa, my mum had a manicure (included in my package) and I had a pedicure, hair and makeup done. I didnt have my hair or make up trial as I didnt want to stress if i didnt like it and I totally didnt need to worry. They had books of different hair styles and I took my tiara and diamonte pins with me. At midday my bridesmaids came and joined me in the spa they used the Bridal suite to get ready in, where they done their own hair and make up, they loved the all getting ready together and of course we had more champagne. Also they were able to use their hair sprays and one of my bridesmaids had a black eye (long story) and the spa lady covered it up properly for her. They left me at 1:45 and went back to mine to order room service. I got back at 2pm and went mad as my room had still not been cleaned and I had called them at 9am to tell them I had a photographer coming at 2:30. My mum came and started getting me in my dress and the photographer arrived, 2:50 the girls were out on the balcony having room service yep I was meant to be getthing married at 3pm there was no way i was going to be on time!! Well after a mad rush and my mum rushing back to get herself ready, photos on the balcony we left my room at 3:15. I then had to walk through the pool area with everyone cheering, clapping and taking photos the nerves started to kick in. When I got to the roof the bridesmaids and pageboys music started (Take That Greatest Day) and the tears started aswell, I started to cry uncontrollably, my girls left me with tears in their eyes and then it was just me & my dad and my music started (Bruno Mars Just the way you are) desperatley trying to stop crying we made our way down the aisle, as soon as i saw Jay beaming I couldnt stop smiling. The service was performed in spanish and translated into english this was lovely, we then had a Sand Ceremony which Harry & Hollie joined us in. The whole thing was shown on a weblink aswell which some of our friends got to see (we also got a copy on dvd as we asked for it). We then had some photos on the roof before going down to the beach for more photos. On the way to the beach my son stood on my dress and ripped my dress, my mum quickly tucked it all up (good old mum). We then went to the mexican bar and had a drink before heading to the Zavaz Plaza area for our reception. We decorated the tables with pink scatter crystals, maracas, then i had vases with pink water beadsin and the bridesmaids bouquets, I had pink light up ballons hanging around the pergola it looked lovely. we went for the Family Style dinner and wow it was amazing and so much of it. We had DJ Doremixx he was fantastic, and the balloons, masks and glow sticks he gives out went down a treat. He had everyone up dancing all night long, I didn't want the day to end! Our first dance we did a evolution dance, we started off with Savage Gardens 'I knew I loved you before I met you' then broke into various funny songs (kung fu fighter, ymca, mc hammer etc) this went down a treat erveryone laughed so much. The staff were great, they remembered everyones drinks and made sure they had a refill as soon as they had finished, they brought us various shot throughout the night. After it had finished alot of us went up to the Mojito Bar and carried on dancing and drinking. One word for the whole day 'Excellente'. I will put some photos on but if you want to see more add me one facebook Michelle Herbert, and if you want to ask anything ask away.

        I would really like to do a sand ceremony and was told by the WC that they have the vases, sand, etc. for $40.  My question is.... have previous brides used this or did you bring different ones?  Also.... how do you pack it to bring it home so it doesn't get all mixed up??!! LOL!

          This is the $40 Lomas sand ceremony.  I think you cab get nicer ones from some place like Michaels or an online wedding store.  It served it's purpose, but I don't think it was worth $40 unless you are paying for convenience.  It is closed with a piece of cork, and a seashell is put on the cork with a hot glue gun.  Sorry no proffessional pics yet from our photographer.  If you look in this forum around June of this year, Shani has a very nice one that she brought to Mexico.  I think there was an msgillis about 8 months ago who had some nice sand ceremony articles that she brought from the US too.  The $40 one sufficed for us, I just think there are nicer ones you can probably bring with you.  BTW, our sand got all mixed together on the flight home.  It's all pink now!

          It is an option with the Set Menu dinners. But you really have to push them to get this! You have to pick the appetizer and the dessert, but you should have the option of choosing 2 of the entrees and letting your guests choose. Of course there is the 45 day prior to wedding deadline (or 21 days if you really push your cause LOL)

            That is good advice!!  I am going to def. tell the WC's that its to look as legal as possible, and "Murmel" said if FMI asks, we got our finger stamped at the time of blood taken so I wouldn't get it on my dress....BRILLIANT!!!!!

            :)




            Ok, here is my advice. First, let your WC both on site and not that you want your ceremony to look AS LEGAL AS POSSIBLE! THis is what we are doing, meaning we don't want ANYONE to know that we aren't getting legally married there. We are signing the marriage certificate down there. Tell his mom that you are keeping those details between the two of you and that you are CELEBRATING your wedding down in Mexico. I would just explain to her that you haven't made up your mind yet and that you will most likely do everything do there, then change the subject lol. 



             



             

            AWESOME! 

            Now THAT is a vegas dress....LOVE IT!  super sexy!  I have mine this Saturday, and have yet to find an outfit....I really don't know what to wear, just doing a night on the town with the ladies in Toronto!

            :)

            Glad you had a blast...nothing beats dancing with the girls!

              I just purchased mine on etsy from sayanythingdesign.  It is a frame sand ceremony, it is more expensive then the lomas one, but I liked the idea of hanging the frame with a pic. of Chris and I from the wedding on our wall when we get back.  ($68us)...it comes with a stainless steel funnel so you don't poor sand everywhere!  lol

              and you can take the sand container out to change up the pic. whenever you want.

              :)

                Question:  Is it true you don't have to book any of your dinners at the restaurants except Le Chique? 

                :)

                  I got mine from papermart.com.  I got two bolts of tulle (40 yards each) which is way to much according to my wedding planner for about 36 dollars total!  What a steal!
