    The suit is from Debenhams - its only now available online as all the stores have started sending them back to their central warehouse as they are out of season - as we really wanted to buy it yesterday but he got measured for size etc.

     

    Newquay sounds great - when is your hen party?

      Hi ladies

       

      Thanks for all your advice, me and FI sat down yesterday and really thought about what it is that we wanted and who we possible couldn't get married without, we weighed up the pros and cons (again) and the difference in price of doing it UK or Mexico....we have such huge families that it will cost us an absolute fortune in catering if we do it in the UK and we just can't justify spending £10k on venue/catering when our whole wedding abroad will cost that, which was one of the main reasons of going abroad in the first place.

       

      We have our hearts set on Mexico and as upsetting as it will be for me that some of my close family and friends won't be there we'll celebrate with them when we get back.  As long as i have my mum and daughter there that's all that matters to me and obviously H2B. Wayne says he is not fussed about who in his family come and don't come because he says it is about us and as long as i'm happy he's happy. 

       

      We have decided on a hotel Dreams Cancun, I absolutely love the cliff top Gazebo for the ceremony and the hotel is a good family hotel and right in the middle of all the action which is what we want.

       

      I feel so much better now knowing that we've decided and i'm not going to change my mind.  I just can't wait to book it all up, I spoke to Caribbean Warehouse and they say that the prices should be out in February so I can book then.

       

      i feel like i can breathe again and finally start concentrating on the wedding.

          hey charmaine,

          my sister has booked for our wedding and it is costing £6000 for her, husband & 4 children. now they are really struggling with money & i am worried they wont be able to make it so i know how you feel. you have plenty of time to keep looking and hopefully you will find a hotel that has everything you want x

          Haven't been on for a while, I feel kind of lost at the moment, we still haven't decided on a hotel and because I can't book anything until March I don't feel like i'm getting married at the moment.  I am really struggling with choosing a hotel, every one I choose has good and bad points about it and i'm finding it difficult to decide.  I'm trying to find a hotel that suits the people that may be coming but still something that we want.  I can't just choose what we want because what we want would cost everybody else an absolute fortune 'Cancun Palace', and i've at least decided that my family being there is more important than a plush hotel as long as the hotel is beautiful and I get married with my loved ones there that's all I want.  On top of that the prices have increased alot because of the air tax (approx £300 per person based on July 2011 prices) and people that I thought would definitley come are now saying that they don't think they can make it.

           

          I was talking to my cousin yesterday who is like my sister and i couldn't imagine getting married without her there but she has 3 kids (they'll be aged 15, 10, and 1) and it's going to cost her about £5500 to get out to Mexico.  Although I'm telling her that I dont expect her to pay that and I completely understand if she couldn't come because she can spend £5k on a million other things that are more important than my wedding, she knows that my wedding wouldn't be the same without her there and vice versa, so she is feeling the pressure to come...i feel awful, because both her and her sister (who is also like my sister) are not made of money and will find it so hard to come.

           

          People have asked me to consider doing it in Cyprus or even over here, but OH and me if i'm honest have got our hearts set on Mexico (if we ever choose a hotel)...I just feel so confused and very guilty that family feel under pressure, becasue they couldn't imagine missing my wedding so will find anyway possible to get there.

           

          I just feel really really low at the moment.

                    Hi everyone I have just found out that the hotel we have booked for our wedding has just had an explosion in the hotel lobby so far 7 people dead and 2 in critical condition am so upset I cannot believe it.  It was a natural gas explosion in the hotel lobby it is on the bbc news and sky news.  I feel for the families who are there now and the families of the deceased. I have phoned Thomsons and they didn't know anything about it. They do now !!! They are going to update me tomorrow because obviously they are concerned at the moment with the people in resort..... I don't feel safe going there now as I do not want my children to go there.... I thought I found the perfect place to get married :-(
