Hi clare-marie, i'm on the Manchester flight April 12th!!! We are getting married on Wed 18th April @ 4pm & also like yourself we've only got a total of 10 ppl ;o) I have had the same concerns about the meal after the ceremony & have opted for the beach location,but have just received an email last night off Jenny saying that the garden gazebo would be better!? The dreams paradise package is the one we have & that has wine & cake for up to 10 ppl which suits us,however I'm not sure about where to have a sit down meal as ideally would like to choose one of the many restaurants after sampling some of the food 1st ;o)  Think i've seen some of your posts on facebook wall so i will try and private msg you on there to...Hope you're not too nervous as we've now got less than a week to go, keep in touch & hopefully will see you at the check in desk at Manchester haha xx

It's been a while since I was on BDW and have finally caught up on the DLR thread! :)

 

We are booked for DLR Oct 27-3rd with the private beach gazebo wedding onthe 29th! We are doing the Pier cocktail hour and still deciding on the reception resturant and welcome dinner. Flights are booked from 3 different countries (what a headache!). Did anyone else from Canada have to deal with an overnight in Montreal or Toronto????

 

Happy planning to all the other DLR brides!

Hello there. Not been on here for quite a while, but just caught up on the posts. You will have to send me a friend request on FB. There seems to be quite a few brides flying out on the 12th......we could have a huge pre wedding party on the plane ha ha I've opted for a meal on the beach with the tikki torches.....I didn't realise you could eat in the gazebo! It sounds like a nice idea! I'm getting extremely nervous now. My HTB hasn't been involved in much of the planning as I wanted it all to be a bit of a surprise, so I just hope he likes it. We get married on sat 21 at 5pm. Are you having bridesmaids? X Soccer1615........ How AMAZING! You have done a fantastic job, your guests will LOVE them. Hope everyone's planning is going well. I cannot believe how quickly time has passed.......only a few days until I head down to Manchester! X

@Chanelo - Thank you so much for the chair contact information!  I really hated the idea of those wrapped chairs, but could not rationalize spending over $500 on chairs for our May 19th wedding.  I just gave the name and number to my fiance to pass on to a groomsman who speaks some spanish - enough to make a deal, I hope :)

Your pictures are beautiful.  Thank you and all the ladies who have provided upcoming brides with reviews and pictures.  It really helps to calm my nerves knowing that it does all come together.  I have used so much information from this thread to help with my own plans and I feel prepared knowing ahead of time that there will be an upcharge for our reception at the SSG.  There was no charge when we booked a year ago either.  I am getting stressed with 6 weeks to go and so much seemingly left to pull together.  How were the flowers?  Did you get a chance to meet with the florist or discuss flowers when you got there?  That is one thing I am worried about.  Did you bring your decorations with you or ship them ahead of time?  I am nervous about shipping in advance, but it seems cumbersome to bring stuff with us.  Thank you again and CONGRATULTIONS!!!!!

clare-mare12...Thank you for the kind words...Your very soon!!! How exciting!! I cant believe how fast time flies.  Today is our legal ceremony in the states.  FI grandparents couldnt make the trip so its going to be just the 4 of us today on their 64th anniversary...wow I can only hope to make it as long as they have.  Unfortunetly they are both in the hospital but we are doing it anyway at the hospital.  Should be an interesting night ahead of us :)

 

Congrats to those of you leaving soon!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
