    Lyndsey , sending big hugs

    Well i've after waiting 15mins  for someone to answer the phone for The Wedding Team Thomsons, what a waste of time that was still no date 9 weeks after I gave my booking forms back to the TA. They have one more week then bridezilla is going to make an appearance

      michelle, that's good news, at least its the time you were hoping for

       

      herbie, i am shocked they didn't do something for you. to be fair i had been ringing twice a week for the past 3 weeks so they were probably sick of me!! if i were you i'd ring back on wednesday and say that when you last rang you were told to ring back thru the week to get some action taken. that's what i did and it worked! x

          Can I ask are any of you doing OOT Bags? If so what sort of things are you putting in them?

              Lyndsey I'm so sorry to hear that...big hugs to you and your family

              Oh forgot to say. We have our ceremony time back. The hotel didn't realise that the TA was booking in the same couple that had already reserved the 3pm slot... dont know how, there cant be that many ppl getting married that day called Michelle Richards and Daniel Page.. but hay hoe it's all sorted now :o)

               

               

               

              Michelle that is fantastic...what twits of them to not realise it was the same couple.

                Hi ladies

                 

                I just wanted to ask your advice/opinions on a few things.

                 

                1. Would you advise booking the wedding package through the TA or direct with the hotel?  I had always thought best to book with the TA as then your covered for things like volcanic ash but what with all your problems getting the dates and trying to get hold of a WC, now i'm not so sure.
                2. Did you do a group booking with all your guests or just give them the hotel details and have them book themselves?  I'm thinking it might be too stressful trying to arrange everybody onto one booking regardless of how good the group discount might be.
                3. Are you buying your Grooms a present and if so what?

                  Thanks i know there are defo problems with the language barrier. I dont know how they missed it being us but i'm glad it's sorted now and the WC and the TA have the same couple on the same day and time. I have it in black and white to prove it ha ha.. i am printing those kinds of emails and taking them with me as a back up.. lol....

                   

                  As for booking the package...hhhmmm I really think it depends on who you book with and which hotel. This is my personal opinion. My WC at the hotel takes FOREVER to get back to me so we decided to book with the TA. Having said that. I did contact the WC at the hotel direct and reserve our date and time. I wanted some kind of contact with them, i didn't want it all left to the TA. (i trust no-one, lol).. if the hotel had better communication i prob would have booked direct.. sorry not much help am i..

                   

                  We booked our holiday through Caribbean Warehouse and they got us all the best rates and then the girl looking after us took care of everyone that booked. She either phoned them or they phoned her. She then just grouped us all together to be part of the wedding party. But everyone is in charge of their own holiday and fiances. Which i prefer. I have enough to get on with without collecting and accounting for everyones money.

                   

                  Yes i am buying FI a pressie but dont know what yet...

                   

                  Herbie - yes i am doing OOT bags. So far i have antibactirial gel, small packet of wipes, some insect cream, scholl party feet gel plaster spots and some resolve tabs... for the morning after the night before, ha ha.. i also wanted personalised playing cards and lipgloss but they are proving a bit dearer than i expected so the hunt goes on..... i am collecting things as i go and see them.. are you doing them?

                    Thanx hun really glad it's sorted and very quickly too :o) that's what i like ha ha..

                     

                    Mum has been great i actually felt a bit guilty that i'd been doing it all myself. It wasnt on purpose. I'm just used to doing everything so just cracked on with it. I didnt intentionally leave her out. ha ha... it's nice she wants to do things and today she came round and gave us £1000 towards bits so that is a great help :o)

                     

                    Lets face it MIL wouldn't do it so it's nice i have my family who want to be involved and help me :o)

                      i think i'm going to do oot bags, been getting some great ideas on here for what to put in them. I was also looking at lipbalm but bit expensive.

                      Michelle2011 do you know if there is a bridal shop in Bluewaters?
