        God I'm so mad you won't believe what my TA has just dropped on me!!

        I rang THEM to see if I could buy excess baggage as I didn't want to run it too close with our cases as we are only entitled to 20kg each! anyway I said look I know I get a case for my dress etc and they said oh no that changed as of 1st May lol WHAT!!!

        so now I have to either pay £50 for an extra bag which i can only out 5kg in! Their resolution - fold up your dress really small and put it into your hand luggage! I swear i am going to murder someone lol

            Date Triplets YAY - As Tracy mentioned I leave 2 weeks from yesterday...I think our flight is at 8am. Unfortunately since Im coming from the west coast I wont run into you ladies at the airport since with the time difference, ect we dont get in till like 6pm :-(

            Jax - so sorry to hear about your photog issues. I know how excited you were to get them...hopefully something works out!

            Ayita - gonna go check out your planning thread

            Lisa - Im sure you have a datetwin somewhere in BDW land!

            Marie - IRK so annoying! What are you going to do? How is the eye by the way?

              I know I won't be running into any BDW brides since hardly anyone is getting married in St. Lucia. I am spending the majority of my honeymoon in Punta Cana though, so there is potential I could be at that resort with someone or on the same plane on the way home. Hmmm, now I'm curious.

              Marie, would you be "grandfathered in" since you booked your flights before May 1st?

                Jax - are you going through NYC at all? We go from Rochester to NYC to Cancun. I hate getting up for a 45 min 6A flight but at least we get to Cancun around noon-ish. Yael, that sucks that you get there so late, I'll be tan before you get there. :)

                Marie - WTF? and yes, how is your eye?

                Lisa ~ I think there's a thread on here that is simply posted wedding dates, you should check it out and see if you have a datetwin.

                Even the radio is mocking me and my stress of getting married so soon, the song Wedding Dress just came on. :)

                  Well I said if I had to pay to get another 5kg allowance then I was bloody having it ALL lol the baggage handlers will only deal with cases of 23kg now! I said WTF I bench press more than that the lazy twats lol (i'm still mad can you tell!!) anyway i said if thats the case i'm having the other 2kg in my hand luggage and they can fucking chew on it lol

                  Asked about an upgrade to premium which will give me that allowance as standard and they said another £149!! each lol I said ok but we've paid £70 already for extra leg room has that come off - I was told that has been taken into account. Spoke to FI who said oh just book it.

                  Soooo I ring back and the cow has gone home! after giving me the hard word about booking it today I mean wtf lol anyway the guy says oh yeah its £149 each so (sneaky me lol checked on the airline's site itself) said well how is that on the site its £169pp I've paid £70 which will then become free for other people who WILL want it so why am I losing another £50pp lol He's ringing me back - 2 frigging right he is lol I've told FI if they don't drop that £50 then I'll pay the extra £30 for the 5kg and they can ram the rest lol

                  My eyes aren't too bad still really dark especially the right one if i get knackered but I've had a constant headache since and pain in my nose is horrific lol I'm hoping it just wears off before I go away cause the pressure in the plane may make me explode lol Thanks for for asking tho x

                    drtracy- i wont be flying into NYC since flights arent allowed to go to cuba from the states.... but then again since we are stopping in cancun on the way to cuba.. it could have been possible...

                    yoAzul- I know! im really nervous that we wont get them there.. but i talked with the one yesterday and they seem keen on doing whatever we need to in order to get them there!.. which is a relief..

                    Hartyt509- Id have to say that if i wasnt dealing with a wedding situation, i would have NEVER used a TA!! mine hasnt been all that helpful either and it makes me so mad that im giving them business!!!... i hope it all works out... id just bring the dress on the plane with u anyway.. and say u didnt know otherwise.. maybe ur TA's are just trying to get more out of you
