Oh poor you Michelle -- at least you have lots of positive things to look forward to this year :-)

 

Happy New Year to you all!

 

FI nearly had a heartache this pm as I did the OOT Bags - started at 1 and finished them at 9.30 - everything was thrown in a box after I started off so positively at the beginning of the year buying bits and then I stopped until today when I raided the 99p shop and hobbycraft.  My back aches, and I feel shattered there was paper pritt stick and ink everywhere - lol!

 

I have posted pictures of them in the OOT Bag section if you fancy a look - am quite pleased with my efforts even if I do say so myself...

OMG I AM SOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I had a couple of texts last night from my friend who´s gone to the resort ahead of us, she says the hotels lovely, foods amazing etc, it´s hot but not boiling aparently, but i´ll need a cardi at night (i am always cold!) and she says i´m going to LOVE it there. She said the sun´s going down at 4 ish so i´m glad we booked the wedding for 3 and not 4!

 

Going to get my hair done in a bit, then have final tetanus shot, then get one of my fake nails fixed (only had them on since fri, my friend did them and didn´t do the best job unfortunately, think i´m going to have to either remove them or get them filled when we get there). then í´m gong to make us all put our jamas on so i can do the washing, make antony finish packing the cases so i can see the floor again to clean it. and maybe then have a cheeky beer. BECAUSE I LEAVE TOMORROW. HEHEHE

 

My friend who went to mexico on Sat got a 4 hour delay, i´ve been keeping an eye on that flight, and it seems to be normal, but i´m not going to stress cos it´s just an opportunity to spend more time and money in duty free, and it will give Jacob´s english grandparents the chance to spend some time with him ;-) they only see him a few times a year so they always want as much of him as they can get, so much so that they´ve said they´ll have him on the plane with them. Winner.

 

Sorry for the ramble, i´m a bit hyper this morning!

Hi Ladies

 

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, I was ill for most of xmas but made up for it the day before NY eve, got absolutely battered at my cousins house rolled in at 7.30am and i'm only starting to feel 'normal' today...lol.

 

Can't believe it's 2011 and all of you (except me) are going to become Mrs this year, it has come around soooo fast.

 

Jo hope you have a wonderful wedding and it is everything you dreamed it would be can't wait to read your review.

 

 

 

To change the subject, i've got some news of my own....we've decided to get married in England instead of Mexico.  I thought Mexico was everything that I wanted, but as the time of booking came near and reality started to dawn on me that my nearest and dearest couldn't make it due to finances I started to realise exactly what it was I wanted.  That is my family, I can't get married without my sister, nieces, nephews, my cousins who are like my sisters, we've shared every major event in our lives and it just wouldn't be the same without them there.

 

I had been quite emotional and not myself for sometime now and on NY day Wayne sat me down and asked me what was wrong and it all just blurted out....I need my sister and cousins to be at my wedding, I felt awful like I was letting him down but he is so good bless him and he just said whatever will make me happy is what we'll do.  Now I feel as though it all makes sense and I can close my eyes and see my wedding coming together...my sister is over the moon as are my cousins, my little nieces 7 & 4 years old keep telling everybody that they are going to be bridesmaids at aunty's wedding, it just seems like a happy occasion now with everybody involved instead of just me and Wayne planning it.

 

I was worried about finances but my mum has said she'll buy my dress no matter how much it costs, my 8 bridesmaids are all buying their dresses and shoes and acessories, the groomsmen and ushers will pay for their own suits to hire.  My dad is contributing to the catering costs. i've already got a fair bit saved up as we were going to book mexico in February so it just seems to be coming together. 

 

Everybody just seems so happy that we are getting married over here now that they are all chipping in.

 

So ladies thats that...it seems weird that i started this thread and now i'm not going to be seeing it through to the end, but i'll still pop in and see how you are all getting on and if you don't mind i'll even share my UK wedding planning with you.

 

xx

Thanks Nicy, it feels weird as Mexico has been a part of the planning for so long now, but this just seems right now, we are planning to have our honeymoon in Mexico.

 

Well we only just decided 2 days ago to have it in England so i've got lots to do as i'm starting from scratch.  We'll definitley have a church wedding and I'm going to visit a couple of churches this week, it will be Church of England as neither of us are strictly religious, we'll have to start attending church a few Sunday's a month for about 6-12 months to show our commitment so that we can have the wedding there...no more rolling in battered early hours Sunday morning!!!

 

The reception venue and catering are my main concern and biggest cost, so i want to get that sorted quickly, whilst i've got the money.  I've contacted a couple of function rooms and will hopefully go and view those within the next couple of weeks.  There is one in particular that can hold up to 400 people which will be great for us as we have very large families with loads of kids and our guest list will be about 200 keeping to close family and friends.  Then i've got to get quotes for caterers, luckily we know people that know a couple of caterers so we should hopefully get a good discount.

 

I'm really looking forward to dress shopping, there were a few dresses that I liked but didn't try on as they would have been to heavy for Mexico but now anything goes.

 

I'll definitley stay in touch on here and fb to share my ideas and get opinions, you girls have been a godsend in my many hours of need and i'm more than sure that i'll be needing your advice in the future.

 

xx

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
