Ladies I am in need of some advice, I am having a bit of a dilema. I currently have 4 big bridesmaids and one little one. 3 of the big ones are my cousins (of which there are 4 sisters altogether) but one of them cannot afford to come as she has not long had a child. She was okay about not being a bridesmaid, but i'm now worrying about the AHR as I dont want her to feel left out (photos etc her not having a dress). As if i had got married here she would have been one of my bridesmaid. Do I get her a dress to wear for the AHR or not? Advice needed?
Im not sure what i would do in this situation.... As Michelle mentioned, depends how close you are really!! I can see your dilema though.... I think maybe i would sway to getting her a dress for over here at your AHR.... :-) x

I am getting mixed messages on what they test for exactly, I originally thought they tested for HIV and Syphilis and if either of you tested positive you can't get married legally. Now I am hearing that they test for ALL STD's and if either of you have anything wrong you can't get married legally....this seems a bit extreme to me as people can have things like Chlamydia or Ghonnerea (sorry to get all icky on you) and never know because they don't have any symptoms or signs and then get to Mexico and be told they can't get married...I understand the HIV and Syphilis thing but don't understand the all STD thing. I mean how is it affecting them if you do have a 'curable' STD.
The obvious thing is to get checked out here before hand, which i'll do for peace of mind, but i've also heard of horror stories where they've got the results wrong...i.e.couples have got tested in Mexico and the results have come back as positive so they haven't been allowed to get married and then when they've got back to England to be tested the results have been wrong.
Can anybody clarify for me exactly what they do test for and is it from a reliable source because different hotel websites say different things and i'm confused.com....i don't want to get to Mexico and find out we can't get married (not that i think there is anything wrong with either of us) it is just another thing to stress about though!!!
This is one thing we were really confused and worried about to start with. Originaly we ALWAYS said we'd get married in Mexico, but when we started looking into it the test frightened us a wee bit, like you after reading all the "horror" stories, so we started to look at other countires, Jamaica, Aruba, etc but we were never happy and always ended up looking at and talking about Mexico, so we looked into this a wee bit more and just thought sod it, we wana get married in Mexico....
anyway this extract is directly of the RIU website (where were marrying)
|Do I need to take a blood test and, if so, what diseases do you test for?|
| Yes, but only if you are planning to get married in Mexico. |
Tests of HIV and syphilis, Gonorrea, Herpes and all the STD's are required and must be perform by a certified doctor. Your on-site wedding coordinator will arrange the doctor's appointment in your hotel room. You can not take the blood test in your country and bring the results to the Resort. The cost of the blood test is included in the wedding package price.
*Please be aware that if any of the results turned positive, you will not be able to get legally married.
I MUST ADD:
It will be worth checking with your own hotel/WC if the blood test is carried out in your hotel/room and if the blood test is/isnt inc in your package as i know these can differ hotel to hotel, I spoke to a girl on here after her wedding and she said it litrally takes the doc 2 mins. and results can be back same day but is usualy the next day.
I was worried we would have to find our way to some back street hospital or something and that scared me the most.
Im sure its all well done and we will all be fine :-) x

So at the mo i use Boots scales once a week to weigh myself and just watch what i eat and exercise.
