for the visa thing, it's just the advanced passanger information you need to do. your TA will give you details and you just have to email your passport details. it's painless and takes seconds.

 

for documentation all i've done is have our birth certificates appolstilled. that's all we need (and i've heard you don't even need that). i'll let you know if there's anything else.

 

i just had a presentation at work. the girls came over with a trolly with 5 bottles of champagne and lots of nibbles, all my friends at work came over for a glass or two. they got us £100 in mexican pesos, a zorbing experience from our gift list and a Bath spa and afternoon experience from our gift list! we're SOOOOOOOOO lucky!! had a lovely afternoon! now we're all off to a local champagne bar for more drinks!

 

i won't be on as much now girls, as im not at work any more! but i will pop on! have fun with the planning and i'll let you know how Mexico and the Wedding goes!!!! it's so real and so exciting! thanks for all your support and i'll speak soon!!! xxxxxxxxxxx

I also really wanted a starfish for my bouquet but every site I found wanted ridiculous shipping $65 for a $15 starfish!

I found a website that has the bottle stoppers and the starfish that wants only $18 shipping! thewave.gif

rfish Starfish Bouquet Jewelry - 3 colors

Andddd a fuschia and orange garter to go with my wedding colours woop pinkie.gif

Thank you!!! I am mega excited! it's my last day at work today, look at my desk!!

have you thought about buying things out there? i am worried about weight, so im getting my tea lights, shot glasses and star fish from wallmart out there!



it depends on your airline. im with thomas cook. out hand luggage is only 5kg and 23x17x11 so there's no way i can take my dress on as hand luggage. but we did get a free suitcase up to 20kg for wedding 'etire' only!

Yes im with Thomsons so have 23kg each as its "platinum" then 7kg as hand luggage each (thats for everyine flying with us) then we "bride & groom" get an extra 5kg each and we can use that either as hand or check in, were going to see what dress and kilt/suit weighs then decide :-)

i have a few things, beaticians/hairdressers, i need to pack, i need to confirm the catamaran trip, i need to change money up, that kind of thing. im sure there is more, but i can't be bothered to think about it! i just want to be drunk! hahaha!
The desk is fantastic... noway on earth would the people i work with do anything as nice as that, we'd be lucky if we got a card... But i put it down to the part of the world i work in (i think carlisle people live in a but of a bubble.... if your not from round there then your not really welcome.... SORRY if i offend anyone (dont think anyone from here is from Carlisle so i should be ok) but thats they way i have been made to feel)

But back to you Louise... FAB FAB work collegues and friends you have that is so so lovely, hope you enjoyed your champers :-)
It'll be more exciting for you now though that you have finished work :-) xx

Hi All,

Not sure how I have previously missed this forum!!

I'm from Newcastle & we are booked for Azul Sensatori for May next year, can't wait! We booked with Thomson but are still waiting for our wedding date to be confirmed.

 

So far there are 40 of us altogether and most of us are staying in the same hotel. It's a mixture of family & friends. What about you lot? Have many people booked up yet?

 

The forums on here have so far been really useful so hopefully this one will be too! x x x

Hey Lyndsey welcome to the UK bride thread great to have another UK bride with us xo
Oooooo someone from this end of the country too, most on here are from down south :-)
WOW 40 of you, thats fantastic. I booked with Thomas Cook but were flying with Thomason as its a Thomsons resort were going to. They took ages to confirm date but when they did it was the greatest feeling :-) I have (inc us) 7 of us booked and think thats going to be it, we would like more but it just hasnt worked out that way.
What date in May are you hoping for? We are getting married on 6th May... CANT WAIT... cant wait to have you join in the planning :-)

Hi Nicola,
We are flying out on 6th May and are hoping for 12th may for our wedding date.it's the earliest we can get married as we can't include the day we fly, then the weekend, then 3 full working days. The 12th is a thursday so if we don't get that we might get offered friday 13th! i hope not i feel like we'd be jinxing it!! 7 is still a nice number, we were shocked at how many people actually booked up for us!x

Nicy that is great luggage allowance. I am jealous. Monarch are crap!! We dont get any bonus for being the bride and groom and our allowance is minimal! Rubbish!!

 

Louise - good luck hun, i hope you have a fantastic time and your wedding is everything you dreamed of and more..:o) the first of the UK brides on this thread to get wed, it's soooooooooooo exciting x

 

Welcome lyndsey!! congrats and lovely you have so many ppl going with you

i'll have to check as not 100% sure but i don't think thomson have given us any additional luggage allowance. i think its the standard 20kg and we can pay for extra (which i will defo be doing as I struggle to keep below 20 on a 1 week holiday never mind our wedding!!) x

    • 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
