- 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.
- Are you buying your Grooms a present and if so what?
1.) I booked through TA.... I wanted piece of mind that if anything goes wrong i can get all money back and wedding, or if anything changes due to volcano etc the wedding date /money wont be lost etc etc.
I think it vary's by the sounds if it resort to resort how quick the WC is at getting back, mine responed within 24 hours all times i have emailed...
2.) We didnt do a group booking, gave guests details they booked of their own accord and we gave them our wedding reference so the TA linked them to our wedding.
3.) Yes... unsure what yet but am thinking something like this
Can I ask are any of you doing OOT Bags? If so what sort of things are you putting in them?
Unsure at the mo? Im kind of picking bits up here and there but still dont know. Want to do personalised playing cards, shot glasses etc but cant find any cheap enough!!

Lyndsey - I hope everything is OK at home, sending my thoughts your way.
Roo - WOOOP WOOOPPPP - its your big day soon! All your little details must be coming together nicely and your planning review is fab, I just loved it.
Michelle - I love your OOT organza bags. I think they are just perfect. Do they look great in the flesh?
Nicy - How's the headaches chicken? I read back and saw what you had written and have my fingers crossed that your not still getting them. I suffer bad migraines and its usually brought on by stress .......
Herbie76 - regarding booking - I am so bewilded to all this I dont know either! I have been in contact with Moon Palace directly so Im guessing I will leave it with guests to decide how they will do it. I think? I really dont understand!
Catherine - I'm a Moon Palace bride too! We are going for the 6th August so it would be awesome to swap notes maybe?
Janapana - I am so so jealous of your hot weather! we have had yukky grey rain for the last 3 days and its hard to believe its August!
Yesterday I nearly flipped my lid. It isnt funny but when I first signed up and I saw the posts from you girls saying how awful your in laws were I really counted my blessings. WELL. It seems that the word wedding brings the bitch out in family members and I was so fed up yesterday that I rang the registry office in Gretna Green. I said to Chris - I'v ehad enough, its a long weekend, we can drive up there and make a weekend of it just the two of us. As it turns out you have to apply 15 days before
I guess in a way, I would have bene doing it in spite and I may have had regrets of not having what I dreamed of. But it was a bit exciting I have to admit and I just really fancied popping to Monsoon and getting a dress (I HATE SHOPPING) and being done with it. Anyway, as it turns out, my parents who live in Tokyo made an emergency call after being SOS'd by Chris and de-escalated the situation. My poor dad couldnt stop laughing as he didnt know what to say!
Ooooo, I live 10 mins drive from Gretna Green!! LOL :-) x
In-laws, Who'd av em eh!!!
