Glad to hear about the signature cocktail!! I was hoping to have one but wasn't sure about how to handle it logistically. Now to figure out what to serve!

hey girls :)

 

I feel I need to apologise - I don't seem to have been on here much and giving people support as much as usual....getting so close to the wedding, the list of things to do is getting longer and more urgent!

 

I have been off work yesterday and today - yesterday I just couldn't get myself going lol so I did loads today instead!

 

1. went through all your kind posts and messages about my pics and used that as a guidance as to which ones to pick (this did take a lot of time as I'm sad and did write out all the numbers and tallied up which ones people had voted for so I could see which were clear winners!! lol - yes I'm a geek!!).

2. came up with 12 pics I really wanted and messaged my photog back and added comments on all of them as to what I want her to do with them!

3. tried to find out once and for all what the hell we need in order to make sure our marriage is legal - there and back here (closer we get, the more I'm worrying about this). so I phoned the Mexican embassy in the UK and asked their advice. they gave me the number for the Mexican consulate and website - for any UK brides, this is really useful. so spoke to them and got all the info I needed :) feel much better now.

4. phoned our TA wedding team to confirm they agreed with the Mexican consulate...they're requirements were a little different but they're looking into checking it out to update their records. also got confirmation that we don't need to do anything to the marriage certificate out in Mexico. and it's legal here in the Uk without us doing anything. but we can get it officially translated when we get back and register it here so they have a copy.

5. also spoke to the TA wedding team about my dress - they no longer allow anyone to carry a dress on, and all wedding dresses must be packed in a 55x40x20 cm box and weigh less than 5kg (shame the wedding dress shop can't/won't/don't know how much my dress weighs!) so now I need to find a box and somewhere that will pack it for me.

6. researched and bought name cards for AHR

7. researched and bought favour gift bags for AHR

8. found somewhere to hire a cake stand for AHR :)

9. tried to confirm dates and details with reception venue but no-one answered - left a message and waiting for someone to call me back.

 

PHEW! I'm shattered!! lol

 

hope everyone's going good with their lists....

 

this is all starting to feel very real now. 32 days now until we fly out and 37 days until we get married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tomorrow i'll be able to say 'I'm getting married next month!!'

 

Amy, I love that you're packing already! I haven't even had time to think about that - I'm impressed!

 

much love girlies smile03.gif bootyshake.gif

I am brining real touch flower for my centerpieces since they are submerged orchid stems with a floating candle on top and I am renting the vases from them. They quoted be $400 per table for 3 orchid stems and vases so I opted to bring my own orchids, much cheaper.
Thanks for the info on the package. I just started researching the real touch flowers - they look like a GREAT alternative...How much did it cost to rent the vases? Are you having multiple vases per table or one per table?

Katie - glad you got so much done - you must feel better/less pressure now!

 

Wendy - whoa so soon! Are you doing any last minute primping?

 

Just another complaint about my TA... FI has now left her 2 messages this week trying to submit final payment and she has not answered nor gotten back to him. SO annoying. The last time I spoke to her was Thurs and she said she was doing "not real well" when I called and said "hi, how are you?" It was a STUPID decision going with a one man shop! Of course when I picked her she spoke in the 3rd person kind of with "we" and "us". Turns out she is the only "one" in "we".... lol

    • i was 100% happy with my cake! it was the most amazing cake and when i travel down again i will be requesting a smaller size cake than the one she made me for my 25th anniversary renewal.  I did everything by FB messanger and Paypal! she is on point with her cakes and running her business! I give her 5 Stars and then some! Thank you for making my day amazing!
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
