Hi Ceri

 

I'm only frustrated as i'm waiting to here if she has now confrimed the right place for our privent reception  as she booked the wrong one (not happy). We are aslo having beach gazebo near pier and then Zavaz plaza for reception (hopefully). We are having Doremixx DJ for us as it was cheaper than resort one and he has good reviews. We are having Cabrie do our photos she splitting her time for us 2:30-5 then coming back 6:30-9 (so we are lucky there as they dont normally split time). I am keeping on about the offers to us in the hope they will crack on that one (fingers crossed). As far as gazebo decorations go i'm having the exotic gazebo, and am still debating on bringing my own chair bows. Everything is so expensive! Are you having a cocktail hour? what time are you getting married and having your reception. Our ceremony is at 3pm and reception 6-10, not quite sure what we will do inbetween yet. We have 23 going 19Adults and 4 children at the moment still might have a few book. Did you know the children are half price of the private event price, i only knew this because i asked my wc didnt inform me before.

 

When we went to Mexcio before we went to Xcaret, which we loved and are looking into going there again, bit of something for everyone.

I got the fans off ebay. A pack of 12 from Hong Kong and they were about £5. There are 10 women in the group. No not doing anymore. The men can share and use these if they want, lol. I'm guessing they wont bother.

And that reminds me, what kind of invitations did you all go for? I was thinking to get boarding pass invitations from Etsy...i know it is a little bit risky cos they are based in US, but thought I will try cos they are sooo pretty...

 

Thanks :-) Originally we wanted a bride & groom.. Beach themed but i couldnt find one cheap enough... they were always about £30-£40 which i just cant justify paying for a cake topper which will get used max twice if we have a AHR. Then i just thought i like the idea of out initials and these are quite a good price, Came to about £15 in total with VAT and postage.

 

I made my invites :-) But i do love.gif the boarding pass invites they are v. cute :-) xox

Oh nicy dont be disheartened. Although i know how you feel. I've also been working out hard and being good 6days a week and not hardly lost anything. It p's me off too. So i've decided to STOP weighing myself. I am sticking to it and my clothes feel looser so it must be coming of from somewhere. So i'm just now going by how i feel in my clothes. Sod the scales, lol....

 

Have a lovely time hun, happy shopping :o)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
