    Oh I have missed so much over the past few days.....catching up in my lunch at work...

    Linhy - love your bags and invites - i tend to think less is more - really pretty. With regards to the extra instructions i would just send this to people who confirm they are attending. I did an info pack; with full hotel details, flights, facilities etc once they had confirmed. There are only 18 of us going though and we all booked at the same time.

    prettypigpig - your website is great - it makes me think i need to get a wriggle on with mine.

    Mischaka - i see you are going to one of the Catalonia Hotels as well have you had your date confirmed yet? Im going to Catalonia Riviera Maya and have been given a prov date of 24/01/11 but this cant be confirmed until about August time.

    Michelle - -well done on your AHR - where did you opt for in the end?

    Julie2011 - all the gun battles etc is on the borders - not down on the coast. Just remember its YOUR wedding.

            Yeah been quite relaxed about it - but have decided I am going to nag nag nag my TA - sent them an email as they had closed by the time i got home. I work as a customer service manager so am constantly on the phone to people giving them a hard time to sort out problems - now I'm gonna be the customer that wont give up. LOL

                Good evening everyone

                Mrs.G2B, and congratulations.... 14th May, so nice when you have a date :-) look forward to hearing about your wedding planning :-)

                & JusMe4E, to you 2, cant wait to hear where you decide!

                Michelle, Thats great... £800 is a fab discount.. Again congrats on getting the palce you want, bet your both so made up :-) Gosh your MIL sounds a right pain.... I hope you make up soon and she lets you get on with it!!! its awful when people do that!!! :-( Were quite lucky compared to some of you guys, my parents and stephens parents just let us get on with it.... I really hope she gets over it soon!!!! xox

                Linhy... i agree, im sure all our days will come together perfectly, and we will all wonder what some of the stuff we worried about sometimes was all about!!! hehe x

                Mischaka, i agree with linhy, your website is fab :-) There a few fab free wedding websites, i used momentville, and like you wth mywedding.com, i found it dead easy to use... never thought at all to do a wedding website at all but after seeing a few on here i thought "why not" :-)

                Im just at a loose end now.... getting so annoyed at the prices not being avaiable, just feel i cant do anything else until we have wedding booked.... I did buy 1 or 2 things yesterday for OOT bags but not sure what to do with these properly yet? I just bought some insect repellent (just incase... i get bitten like mad where and when ever we go away) not sure what Mexico is like for mosquitos but i am being prepared no matter what. some lip balm and some antibacterial wipes... hmmm... nothing much of interest really.
                Not that you really wana see but here is my legs/feet after 3/4 days in Cuba.....

                I was in agony, especially at night!!!!!

                  Ouch! itchy itchy! Ok I have good news and bad news on the Mexican muzzies. Bad news are:
                  -Yes they have muzzies at the resorts. Especially the ones next to woods.
                  -It depends on which months you are going, but in general, they have muzzies 12 months on 12 months. During the rainny and summer months, there are a lot of muzzies, especially, after the rain. When it is windy, muzzies hide.
                  -Muzzies eat at night!
                  -Besides muzzies, they also got somethings much smaller (u can't see them normally) and bite/eat you alive (forgot the name of it). Just like mini/micro jellyfishes in the ocean, sometimes u got a huge patch of rash after snokeling with a life jacket...oh well..apparently you may get bomb by mini jellyfish when the life jacket trap them (and yes, they are groupies, so u get a patch of rash as a result).

                  Now the good news are:
                  Mexican Muzzies are choosy eaters. Between me and my mom, they would pick my mom, and not me. However, between me and my FI, they would love to eat me alive. Therefore, as long as u stay next to a Muzzies fave, you are fine.

                  Normal Mosquitoes spray in the western world DOESN'T WORK! Pick the STRONGEST one, and then buy the MEXICAN one there!

                  I found this amazing product called ThermalCell, and tested it on my last trip to Mexico. I became very popular around the resort! It works on a 9ft x9ft radius, so people around me didn't got bitten at all. I didn't have to spray those yucky spray on me.

                    Michelle,
                    I totally understand what u are going thru. I ran into trouble when I was playing with my FI's 4 yrs old nephew and he hurted himself when he was trying to hit me with an elastic..and it backfired on him. My MIL went CRAZY (trust me ...on this one..CRAZY is a very generous word). Since then, I kept a good distance, and only see her on X'mas and her B-day. Now, we are in good terms, as I always give her gifts, and her son is well with me.

                    Julie,
                    It is your day, so if your uncle is too scared, then let him stay home.

                    Josie,
                    I used to be a CS rep...oh man..I don't miss those days.

                    JustMe4E,

                    Take you time and pick the resort of your dream. This forum offers you tons of reviews, feedbacks and ideas!

                    Nicola,

                    Go get the ThemaCell, you don't wanna have bite marks all over you on your wedding day.

                    Linhy,

                    What you are going to do with you got more people then you need to make a nice table? Put them aside with a separate table...so they won't be in the big perfect pic? LOL

                      wow Nicyx- those are nasty bites...yikes- we were there the middle of April last year with no problems but I have heard of people getting eaten alive.

                      Prettypig- thats hilarious about your dad- sounds like a real character! Im sure it was not so funny as you were growing up though.

                      Mischa- great wedding page =)

                      Michelle- thanks, I know I have to remind myself it will all work out. I would rather he just stayed home anyway cause he is such a pessimist. Now if I could just get him to stop spreading the negativity!

                      Welcome jusme4e- this is a great place to be, wonderful ladies with lots of ideas =)
