I have spoke to the WC in resort and she has told me that we only have to be in Mexico for 2 full business days before we can get married, is this right? what info does everyone else have on this? I thought we would have to be there between 3 and 5 days due to blood tests etc I am hoping this is correct as i really want to be married in the first week and chill the 2nd :-)
Yeah, when we were looking in May 209 for May 2011, we were told the prices would be out in Oct/Nov 2009. They actually came out in May 2010.... We booked on 5th May, a year away from our wedding date of 6th May 2011.... SO FRUSTRATING as we could only give a slight indication of prices to guests... going off May 2010 prices, luckily they didnt change by much if i remember but frustrating all the same :-) x

We had future in laws out for a week last week and OH changed up their ££´s into â¬, the english money is going straight into my account for wedding stuff.... should be there later today for a spot more shopping!
I´m off to the post office to sort out the bank transfer for the importation tax on my invitations, hopefully it´s not more than the actual invites themselves, that is one expensive lesson learned, will not be ordering anything from the states again in a hurry!
my replacement t-shirt arrived from vistaprint yesterday, fits properly, all free.... good customer service or what!
It is a much cooler 33º today, although to be fair it´s still only 9.30am....
Have a nice day ladies!
Arrr, that is great customer service :-) To me that goes a long long way x
STOP STOP STOP rubbing it in about the blasted weather in spain!!! LOL
Nicy - Love Love the journal idea for the groom am definitely getting one of those!!!! & how lovely of your MIL.......mine is a complete witch!! However my FIL has said the same as your MIL.....he said we will help pay towards wedding & our hotel but like you we didn't want to ask how much so will wait & see, 'every little helps!!' eh, my family are super!! Mum is paying for all the outfits & Dad has said he will pick up the bill in resort, blood tests, dj, flowers, hair, make up & photos!! So all we really have to pay is our holiday, am so so lucky ( he did joke though, are you sure you don't want to just go to the Isle of Wight & I'll pay for your holiday as well!!) hahahaha
Just had a thought on the Wedding Dress Box......what if something spills on it? I know thats drastic but as its cardboard....imagine a macdonalds coke at the airport dropped on the box??!! I might get one & see how robust they are for £18 its worth a look?
Oooh & one more thing on the underwear front.....my bridal shop has said that they can sew in a bra type thing to the dress which enhances the boobs for £25 so you don't need to worry about straps....might do that & then buy some other wedding underwear for wedding night....nudge nudge wink wink!!
WOW, you are lucky, its great that people can help out like that :-) What lovely Parents you have x
Im definatly getting a wedding dress box, i will just keep it away from the drinks in the airport!! (I Hope) :-) x
Im thinking of getting wedding night undies too, but so so many people say its a waste of time... might get em anyway and if we dont "celebrate" on our wedding night im sure we will the night after.... Sorry if TMI!!!!!

I bought 2 lip balms (not in the chapstick tubes thingys but the round flatish tins like the Vaseline tubs) i got them, 2 for 89p from B&M bargains. I will get Stickers from vista to cover the lid :-)
Mmmmmm coconut lipbalm.... great holiday smell idea, whre are they from? x

Michelle that dress is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Love it!! Again I might be nicking another idea of yours...I've got 3 little flower girls....do they only ship to US then?
I like the dress Michelle... Its like a little princess dress.... Not sure i would have something like that for Am©lie though (if we have her as flowergirl, depends on what knid of 18 month old she is, if her mum wil let her) as its too "big" for me but yes... very very pretty all the same :-) xox
