      Ooo how exciting - where you having your hen weekend?

      Have you tried monsoon for the little girls shoes? We have a lovely shop near us that sell gorgeous shoes in Blackfen called Harris. I will probably get Scarlett some sandels. I'm not getting her dress till after Xmas as she will prob grow loads!

      We have another delay in booking. Thomas Cook said that the day they fly is still under discussion with Cosmos ( i dont get why they are taking bookings on the 24th if they still dont know... DDEERR!!) . It could be 22nd, 24th or 25th May now but we are not booking till it's confirmed as it will affect our wedding date! What a bummer. Another WAIT for us i'm sick of waiting! They also said that although flights are not showing on their site for 24th it may be that Cosmos have chartered the plane for that day and it's not on sale for TCook! It is ONE complete joke. NOBODY can give me a definate answer so we can't book yet! BOOOOO :o(

        that's soooo annoying. do you 'have' to use thomas cook? my holiday is through TC, but i booked with a company called ThisisTravel. do you want to give them a shout and see if they can do it for you? get them to better the price too no harm in asking!!

        i'm going to Ibiza for my hen weekend! it's my 2nd of 5!! i've been to leeds recently, Ibiza this time! sooooooooo excited!

          Michelle - do you have to fly with TC - as Thomson are flying on most of the other dates?

          Oh Ibiza - havent been there for a few years - lol - you will have a fab time! I havent organised mine yet but have a few days off next week so may trawl the net for some ideas. I have a friends coming up in August - a murder mystery weekend!!! Not my kind of thing but hey once the drink is flowing i will probably think its fantastic! LOL.

              I wished i didn't have to. They dont know what they are doing. The problem we have is..... Cosmos do our hotel and it's cheaper to get a package than book separate. We are actually booking through Caribbean Warehouse as they are the best prices but it is the Cosmos package. Cosmos use Thomas Cook airlines. So we are stuck with that. CW priced up the hotel with Tompson flights and it was over 6k. So alot dearer than doing the package. I find it unbelieveable that Cosmos or TCook cannot confirm flights but are already selling them to clients. It's so wrong. We can't book till we know for sure cos of the wedding! CW are Atol protected and i am glad about that. I'm not taking the risk of booking it all separate and taking the risk (we have to think of our guests too) x

              Ooo wish i was going Ibiza. Love it there x

We were told we would be given our date within 4 weeks - 6 months later we are still waiting as it takes so much longer if you are having a legal ceremony as they have to wait on the registras availability. The way it seems to work is they request a date for you and then its down to the Mexican authourities to confirm it and then the hotel - it just seems a bit of a waiting game. My date doesnt get confirmed until August. Come Aug1st i will be straight on the phone - lol!! But this does seem to be norm across the board having spoken to other UK brides as most of the Americans and Canadians dont go for the whole legal thing for this reason. Hope you get yours confirmed soon tho. xx
                  That still doesnt make sense - I booked the wedding direct with the hotel and it was confirmed very quickly!! Dont see why it'd take longer with a travel agent confirming than an individual!

                  Michelle - Have CW been more forthcoming with the WC conversation now?x

                    They haven't really said much about it to be honest. The girl i'm dealing with Louise (lovely girl) is just trying to concentrate on getting us the best deal for the lowest price and sort out the day we fly. She said she will check the wedding when we've sorted the rest. It sounds as though they make inital contact and then pass on details and i will deal direct. I have already made contact with the Barcelo so it should fingers x'd be straight forward. But come on girls this is me talking, there is bound to be some drama around it, lol... nothing runs smoothly for me ;o)

                    I just want it booked. I'm getting to spoilt brat stage where i'm stamping my feet and jumping up and down...."I want it booked". hee hee....(i've been waiting since last august and still not booked :o(...)

                      I did read so many bad reviews of booking weddings through TAs - but went with it anyway - i dont regret doing it but i dont think things are confirmed / organised as they lead you to believe when you first book x
                      OH GOD!!!! 6 Months!!! :-( Thats so crap!!! We have people who are looking at booking for a week around our wedding date!!! They will have to wait to book 2!!! TUT :-(
                      I cant wait to get confirmed so i can deal with the hotel and WC themselves :-)

                      Woodsylou....Oooooo, Ibiza, fab :-) 5 Hens? Blimey your 1 lucky lady :-) So you did Leeds and then Ibiza, what are you doing for the rest? Ive not really though to much about this, i will leave it til later in the year to decide i thnk... I am going on a hen do on July 10th to Manchester, were doing a cocktail class.. Mmmmmmm, and then heading in to Manchester for a few hours then heading back up north about 2am ish... so should be fun, looking forward to the cocktail classes though :-)

                      I didnt get on to TC today, i thought id leave it an extra day seen as it was ban hol... i see if they have the paperwork tomoz... Im slowly getting over the date issue, but i want conformation of the weddingin black and white!!!
                      :-)
