The price also includes a 4 hour international bar too which I think is really good, it has all the top brands like Smirnoff, Jack Daniels etc.. If you on facebook add me as im not on here as much as facebook lol - Im Jenna 'Bear' Barroccu.. you can message me any questions then! I have a massive folder on my computer with all wedding stuff so anything you need let me know xxxx
Yes I'm really excited! Have found you on Facey (Karan).
I spoke to Thomson, and like you, they weren't great on giving any free upgrades. I've got 27 confirmed coming from UK and 4 will be meeting us there from USA. They wouldnt even give us free upgrade to premier on the plane. I think thats really bad considering how much the whole wedding party will be paying for their combined holidays!! We're waiting till after xmas to book, and I might see if booking the hotel & wedding direct with Karisma is cheaper and maybe getting Virgin flights instead. My friend flew with Virgin to Mexico and got free upgrades - from booking it with Thomas Cook!! We havent got a Thomson on the Isle of Man so its a bit of a pain to have to do everything via the phone!
We are going to have a private reception too, originally we werent coz we're having a night do here too, but we've decided we want the whole day to be weddingy so we are going to go for it. I had a look at the pick n choose menu and saw the 4 hour open bar, I think thats a very good deal
Have you chosen the location for your reception? Who are you going with for DJ & photographer? xxx
