      Nicy as said on the 2011 thread. I like the first one :o) x

       

      OMG dont say that. It will cause more family problems if we can't have FI's brother and sister as witness'. Great. I'm gonna have to check this one out with our hotel.

       

      Herbie - what a cheek! £600 OMG that is out of order

        Can you tell I work in customer services - lol!! x
         


         



        Yes, im with you, mine was about £400 difference booking with TA than if i went direct, but i have piece of mind that if anything goes wrong like volcano... through TA we would be covered and whole thing can be moved... direct through hotel we'd loose everything if we couldnt make it etc, you get the picture... :-) but as you say it worth a shot!!!!
        fingers crossed for you x

          ARSE, our 4 witnesses are supposed to be my brother, antony´s sister, and the couple who introduced us. I already gave all their details to our wc with the relationships who they were to us, and they never said anything, so i guess we´ll see when we get there..... would make it difficult singling out 2 more from the rest of our friends who are going tho......

           

          3 months on tuesday til we get married.... how fast has time gone this year!!!!

                I can't find my (really) old emails but i'm sure i read we can have anyone be witness'. I'm hoping it's different rules for different hotels here cos my MIL will hit the roof if her son and daughter can't be witness'. I dont want to be falsed to have SIL as bridesmaid NOW!!!!!! I have emailed the hotel and the TA to find out. I'm so sure i read it was OK otherwise we wouldn't have asked them. I have my fingers x'd we can.

                 

                Kerry i think you ask who you like i dont know if there is a definate rule on witness' i could be wrong. Most weddings i've been to it's been the brothers/sisters or best friends.

                 

                Obviously going abroad with a small group we are limited to who we can ask!

                 

                And yes that woman was SO RUDE... you should of said "errr HELLO i am standing here" (bit**)!

                     Not sure what i am doing as i think my maids are planning it AARRGGGHHHHHH!! I know that so far we have a "when the cat's away" night which is in Feb as the boys are going to Canada for the stag but other than that nothing else is planned.
