    For those of you that have read my posts, we i mean i have constantly been toying with the decision we made to elope to Hawaii and hold a AHR on our return leaving our families at home.Just two weekends ago we took Pauls girls shopping and the excitement at them trying on party/wedding dresses for the AHR had me thinking i cant leave them at home.After reading posts on here that you guys had enjoyed your AHR but it had been a huge lot of work and you could of lived without it i got to thinking im doing this just so the girls can dress up as bridesmaids.Even though id given myself a hard time over it i knew cost would play a huge part.I couldnt justify leaving them here and then paying for a venue/band/food /invites for when we got home
    SOOOOOOOOOO last weekend i made my no going back decison!!!!

    Right now ive been making plans for our family wedding in GREECE sept 2010
    right from the start i didnt want a big wedding ive done that!!!
    I have found a place in zante named the PELIGONI CLUB.(sorry i dont know how to post a link) It is perched on the cliff edge over looking the island of keferlonia and the ocean and offers watersports a place to eat a small spa and a pool.It serves villas that you can hire.We are going to hire Stouvega which sleeps 18 basically all our children (6) in total our 2 friends and our parents and my brother.We can get married at the club they did there first wedding in june and have our reception there too.I am so excited that i can now share my excitement with our children and my boys girlfriends.We had already booked a week in Zante in June so we can take some wedding stuff out with us,although i really am keeping it simple.
    The accomodation for a week is £3,000 and flights are about £200 each then to use the club is £50 each plus the watersports on top.OH and of course the wedding costs
    Im happy our children will get to see us married and to be honest it will very probably be our last holiday together as my eldest is 22 and chloe pauls youngest is 5
    Paul and i have the rest of our lives to find Hawaii we will go there for sure maybe to retake our vows !!!!
