Hi Jenna yes I'm on Facebook look for Michelle Herbert then you can see my wedding photos. It was great there and I was so in holiday mode relaxed that I enjoyed the day so much because I wasn't stressing. Started my w day with champagne breakfast with my bridesmaids then went to the spa with my mum and had pedicure, hair & make up done (nails were done day before), my bridesmaids joined me and used the bridal suite in the spa to do their hair & makeup which was nice oh and we had more champagne!! The girls done their own hair and it looked lovely. We went back to mine had room service and more champagne and got ready. My husband was given a room to get ready in and had 4 bottles of spirits in it so he had all the men round for a drink before the wedding which was nice. My wedding was at 3pm which was perfect (even though I was still 25mins late lol). I used Carbie photography which I was very happy with they did 2:30-5 then 6-8:30. We changed from beach wedding to a rooftop wedding as it was more private. After the wedding we had photos on the rooftop then more photos on the beach then some more around the resort while our guests went and had a drink outside the Mexican. We didn't have a cocktail hour and am glad really I didn't as everyone was happy shut to go and get drinks outside the Mexican. We then had a private event at Zavaz plaza 6-10pm it was lovely we had the Family Style menu there was so much food and it was amazing. We used DJ Doremixx who was great. I took balloons with lights in but not lights, to hire their lights was very expensive $50 per post, believe me it's not worth it. There are lights around the area and if your having a Dj he has lights so I wouldn't worry about them. I used my bridesmaid bouquets as my centrepieces and just took pink waterbeds for the vases I sorted vases out when I got there and wasn't charged for them or for my set up. I took scatter crytals and bubbles for the tables and brought maracas in cancun for favours. I would recommend that you only book the essentials through the offside wc as they will charge for everything and the onsite wc don't. After the party had finished we all went to the mojito bar and carried on. Believe me your time will come round so fast I booked mine 18mths in advance and that time flew by. My advice is don't stress as they really do do a great job out there and your guests will love it none of mine wanted to come home. The resort, food, staff, kids clubs are all amazing and the cocktails are even better. We took 4 big suitcases (1each for us 1for kids 1 for wedding stuff) I took my dress as hand luggage in a travel box along with my handbag, if you booked with thomsons you will get an extra 5kg each for bride & groom for wedding attire. Do you know sensatori is also on Facebook? Happy planning, any more questions just ask

Whats ur profile picture on facebook hun? I cant seem to find you.. Im Jenna Barroccu if you can find me.. Thanks for all the info.. I love the rooftop but Thomson quoted me over £1200 extra for it! I think ill leave it until im there and have a look at it.. Alot of people only say too book the essential with the miami wc.. Ive reserved my private event at plaza zavas with her and a few other things.. Do you still have a copy of your detail sheet I could see, if you wouldnt mind? Its nice to get an idea incase I forget certain things.. I was really concerned because I booked my wedding time early (before i found this site). Because when you think of having a wedding in the UK, you have it earlyish, so i just booked it for 1.00pm, not thinking about the sun and timescale of everything else.. Ive managed to change it to 1.30 and I have the cocktail party so keep people entertained if we're still taking pictures.. I find the cost of their decorations very expensive! I want to take as much as I can but then ive got the think of carrying it over there, the set up fee etc.. The material for the gazebo is about $150! I find that ridiculous for a 25 minute ceremony.. Ooh well, I suppose its our one wedding day lol.. I havent gone for a DJ, Im renting to the amp for 4 hours and taking an Ipod.. We're paying for all 37 of us to travel to london and stay over the night before too so had a save some money somewhere.. Did u have to have blood tests? Do you know what this is for? Ive heard so many different stories from being related to STDs lol.. Did you do OOT bags? Im doing t shirts for us all to travel in so am thinking of doing some sort of bag.. Ill give them to everyone in london so they can all pack their own lol xxxxx

Ladies, what are you all taking for your centrepieces? Im struggling with what to have.. I love the vase arrangements but theyre so expensive through the hotel.. I know alot of US brides take their own but the thought of packing vases as well as everything else just seems a bit much.. Anyone have any ideas that is easy to pack? Or a cheap alternative to buy out there? xxx

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
