Hi ladies

 

I was just wondering if there were any UK brides out there, I just wanted some information on what travel agent you booked through, who did you find gave the best wedding package etc.

 

If there's anybody out there, I'd love to hear from you.

 

 

Where are you getting married?  www.beaches4less.co.uk  Nic Barnes is really good.  I highly recommend them.  We're getting married at Excellence Riviera Cancun in Mexico and the price on Expedia.co.uk is about 1.5 times the price we paid.

Nicy - the gold bit at the end is just some 99p ribbon from Hobbycraft - folded it upwards so you couldnt see the stick at the end and then wrapped it around a couple of times.

Your shoes are fab.

 

When I went into Thomson last week they said that they have been told to ring the hotels WC the last day in July and they will confirm our wedding date and times etc - as this is when all the info for next year comes out!  So should be able to be a 100% confirmed bride in the next few days and can order some items that we want that have the date on them.

 

And on a sour note - I dont like the style of the new forum its not as clear as it was - I feel like I keep missing things! x

 

 

I love how you have done the fans, they are great :-)

 

I need to get used to this site a bit more, like you i feel like im missing something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(

 

ARGH.... so exciting, getting 100% confirmed, its THE BEST feeling in the world x

josie, love your fans, nicy love your shoes. Everyone else, i am cursing your inlaws as we speak!

 

nicy, thanks for the emails, got them all, i love the lillies and roses..... getting myself a bit more organised, ordered some orchids and roses from ebay (my daughter Mia is allergic to heaps of pollens, so going to make her a bouquet of flowers to take with us, and a bout for Jacob.) And i bought my shoes, will get a pic on here as soon as i find my phone.....  but they are sooooo gorgeous, far too high as i live in flip flops, so will prob break my neck or ankle, and the best bit is they were 20quid from new look. So glad i went back to sheffield for the weekend, but it´s made me realise how much good stuff you´ve got in the shops over there. Maybe another little trip back to the uk..... with a bigger suitcase this time!

 

Glad you like :-) Glad you got the emails too.... i just cant believe how quick they responded... didnt expect that at all.

Great idea for your daughters flowers. Mia what a lovely name my sister is having a little girl in Oct and that is one of the names on teir list :-)

 

Ooooo, I love new look, you can just never go wrong, always got something... i must say i do try to stay away as i never come out without spending.... in fact i bought 3 dresses from there a few weeks ago... £23 for the lot... obviously in the sale but i just love it :-) xox

No it is different now :-( When you click on the add image button you have to change the tab at the top to image url and paste the photobucket url in there... it worked for me anyway.. give it a try, hope that makes sense :-) x

thanks nicy, i´m such a numpty!

 

anyway there´s my shoes, i´m clumping round the apartment in them as much as possible to try to get used to walking in heels, but i´m still walking like a tranny. my downstairs neighbour must love me!

 

not sure about the tattoo on my foot, does not look terribly classy, but what can you do?! At least the others are hidden! Also, my feet are not really on backwards, i was trying to show the shoes from both angles!

    • 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!!
