my bags came from Islepac today. They are very sweet. I've got pink with pink tissue (they are quite transparent) i'm gonna pick up some brown tissue paper too and try and decorate with a bow or something and tag. When i've done i will post pix... bargain too for 10bags and 2 packs of tissue it was just over £10 so i'm happy :o)

 

 

Another bit of good news today!!! FI friend and wife and son ARE booking up!!! Whoop whoop. FI will be over the moon! They are coming for a week and their son is 1 so it'll be a double celebration!!

That´s brilliant news! It surprises you sometimes who comes and who doesn´t!

Louise, we´ve been here over 6 years now, my daughter Mia was 3 when we moved, and Jacob was born here, (and if you ever read anything about the horrors of giving birth in Spain..... it´s all true!) The main things i miss are my friends and SHOPPING!

I cant wait to be that close and excited!! There will be huge sighs of relief when i finally get my butt on the seat of the plane! :) Im so excited for you!

 

JOSIE : It really is shocking how much they spend on weddings! $70,000....I couldn't believe it!! Some of them are amazing though! I love all the little extra touches!

 

Joanna: It's a pitty we are getting married in different resorts!! However we fly out n the 5th of January too!! are you flying into cancun? we might be on the same flight! We're heading to manchester on the 4th and staying the night and taking the night before check in because it takes away so much stress, used that facility the last 2 years in a row and it's well worth it! Who are u flying with? We're booked thru FC and flying with Thomsons. Ther will be 16 of the 24 of our group going on that flight! Ha would be great to say hello! And just another strange coincidence! I mentioned my MOH is out in spain the now, also near alicante! I don't know the exact spelling of the town but sounds like 'Hon don'?! My work is closing down for a refit soon so if I have time and funds think I'm gonna hop on a flight and go visit her for a day or two! Just surprise her and show up! She stays out there 3/4 months at a time then comes back here, her family moved out there a few years back.

 

Nicy : Aw I cant believe we are at 6 months already! we started or countdown at 18 months!! Aw 9 years congrats!! :)

 

Kerry : Thats a fab idea doing a surprise party for FI!! I agree invite everyone!! haha!! you'll fill that hall up no problem!! :) I hope you have a blast and everything will be organized before you know it!! :)

OMG I think we´re on the same flight as you then! 5th jan manchester to cancun with thomsons! We´re flying into manchester on the 4th too and hopefully checking in that night, staying in one of the airport hotels. I think there´s about 15 of us on that flight too!

I know where hondon is, it´s about 30mins from where i live! How very bizarre! Let me know if you come out, we can have a sneaky sangria!

Nope, h2b is english, in fact we both grew up in sheffield, never met until i went back from spain for a wedding where my daughter was bridesmaid, and he was best man!
Cliche or what? I even lived with the girl who´s wedding it was, but never met antony. We only knew each other 3 months before he packed everything in and came to live out here with me. Fate. I knew from the minute i met him that he was the one though.

OOOOOOOOh the horrors of giving birth in Spain..... NO pain relief whatsoever, (not even a piece of wood to bite down on). i´d have at least had a paracetamol before i left the house if i´d have known..... And they expect you to keep quiet while you´re doing it! My midwife told me to shut up. ( I told her to f-off!) Brutal.

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
