    Well the bridesmaids dresses come but they were to pale a pink. Lovely dress though and they are so light and cool the girls loved them. They looked lovely on too. But i did notice in the broucher they sent they do them in fucshia but they are not on the website so i phoned them up and they said fushia is out of stock and they only have 3 left in stock! OMG i nearly fell over when it turned out they were my 3 girls sizes!!! So fingers x'd they come this week and I'll love the colour and it will be another thing crossed off the list...

    Here is the link to the dress but in Red as Fushia is not on the site...So you can see. When the pink ones arrive i will post a picture, if they are OK...

    I LOVE that dress Michelle!! And what a great price too! I'm thinking that it's fate that they had your 3 girls' sizes as the last 3 in stock, and it's going to work out perfectly:)

      I never have luck like that! I was so happy and couldn't believe it! My sister said it must be an omen, we were meant to have them dresses!! They are so pretty on. I actually wouldn't mind one myself lol.. I will just have to borrow one of the girls! ha ha! I just want them here safe and sound! Can't wait to see the colour in the flesh! And yes the price is great. Well within budget! Happy days!! (makes up for me going over budget with my dress, lol)

      Another bonus today!!! My lovely sister is making our wedding cake! Saves us some pennies! :o)

        Michelle, I love that dress its beautiful :-) Perfect for a beach bridesmaid and perfect to wear agian and again, as Mexbride says it must be fate that they had em in your 3 sizes... it was always meant to be :-)
        Fab news on the Cake as they dont come too cheap and for your sister to do that for you is such a lovely thing to do :-)

        We have had a productive day today, I have sat and completed the invitations and Stephen has been "tweeking" the website ready for potential guests when they recieve their invites. I will probably send these out at the end of the week.
        Because of the prices at our hotel i dont think we are actually going to have any guests other than my parents and FI's sister, hubby and Neice and with our hotel having a 80% wedding guest rule we have had to make it clear on our website we need everyone to stay at our hotel, i feel really mean doing this as it is costly to stay at the RPRM but to make sure our wedding can go ahead then we have to do this as this is what the RIU website says

        *In order to have a wedding at our Riu Hotels & Resorts, the couple and the 80 percent of the total amount of the wedding guests must stay at the hotel where the wedding will be performed; otherwise it will be canceled. This is a strict RIU policy we must follow.

        And we just cant risk our wedding being cancelled or any problems before hand so we figured if we asked anyone wanting to attend to stay at RPRM then it will stop any confusion along the line. Like i said we feel mean but we needed to do something to stop any thing going wrong......

        I am so excited to be booking tomorrow... scared too as its all i know this waiting around, it'll be great to get the BIG thing out of the way but i wont really know what to do with my time!!!! haha :-)

              I found the thread Nic! Now I just need to find the time to go all the way through this...haha.

              Michelle- your bridesmaid dresses are gorgeous!

              Nicola - can't wait to hear which of your TAs you go with...didn't you have 3 you're working with?

                Virginia... Glad you have found the thread :-)
                Yes your right, were were pricing up with Thomas Cook, First Choise & Thomson, We are going to book with Thomas Cook. Overall there package is £50 more expensive but i will ask if she can do it for the same price as first choise (we may aswel ask, got nothing to loose) but if not we will book with them anyway because the service we recieved was absolutly fantastic, Nicola (the TA) has done so so much for me i must have gone in and called up so many times with probably 10 questions at a time and some repetative (more than once) and she has always got back to me that day or the next day.... always phoned me when she said she would, emailed me if not able to get hold of me on the phone etc... never sounded off hand with me, I know its her job and its what she does but with me customer service goes a long long way......

                xoxo

                  That's great! When I finally booked it did feel "real" - you must be so excited for that!
                  Oh, and I got my dress this weekend...I'm so excited about it!

                      I will wait until the next January to book. We have 3 tour operators here that offer packages to Royal PDC, so there is no rush, and I will book it ONLY when the prices are right.
