    hey roo,

    i am sorry to hear how your feelin lately. i know what you mean about having something to look forward to...last year was a shit year for me (my grandad died) & I am only coping because I have the wedding to take my mind off it and keep me busy.

    when you're feeling down, just think at least you and your husband have eachother. times are hard with money but your so lucky to have met eachother. hope things improve for you soon x

      Aww Roo, so sorry your still not feeling 100%. So many ppl have the flu at the mo and just can't shake it off. Our house is still not back to normal and it's doing my head in! Really hope you feel better soon. I think i will get really bad wedding blues. I'm bad enough after a holiday and i've loved planning the wedding and having the hen etc to look forward to! So much going on at this time of your life your bound to feel a little 'lost' when it's all over. Our AHR is 2 weeks after Mexico and i'm sure after that i will be a wreck! Booo hoooo!

       

      Mind you i got some nice undies today and just tried them on and they look like s**t! So depressing! so might save for a boob job after Mexico - give me something to look forward to :o) either that or we gotta book another holiday lol.....

SSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOO If there is anyway you  can plan something for later in the year do it

        Arrrrrr, roo :( What an awful time your having at the moment, I hope you feel better soon, sometimes its so shite when your just stuck in a rut (or what feels like one) sometimes it feels like there is no way out :-( Thinking of you lots lovely and hope things start to feel better soon {{{HUGS}}} x

            Hi Ladies!

            Sorry if this has already been asked but I am stressing myself out!  I am getting married in May in Mexico and I want to know what paperwork I need to bring with me to Mexico - I know the birth certificates need to be translated to Spainish - is there anything else and does anyone know how much this costs???  This is a first wedding for both of us.

             

            Also we booked our holiday through First Choice so are flying with Thomsons - does anyone know how they are going to transport their dress?  I want to take it with me as hand luggage but I don't want to fold it up into a box!!!

             

            Any help will be great - I feel so behind and I need to get my arse into gear!!

             

            Thanks

              Hi Claire, check with your WC at your hotel about the birth certs as all hotels are different. It is also mine and my FI's first marriage and we dont need to get our birth certs apostiled stamped, our wedding co said we dont even need to take them. All we need is our passports and visa card which you get at cancun airport. If you do need to do this it can be done at the foriegn commonwealth offices if you google it.

               

              With regard to the dress. I dont think the airlines will allow you to bring your dress onto the aircraft hanging up. I think you will need to have it packed. I am going to get one of those wedding dress travel boxes from ebay like some of the other girls are doing and my bridal shop is going to pack it for me. They use the special tissue that stops it from creasing so much. I'm sure most hotels also offer a steam service for the bridal wear.

               

              Good luck x

                Hi Michelle

                 

                what size box are you getting for your dress?

                my bridal stor said to get a 26" suitcase and she could pack it in that with the special tissue.............

                  I haven't looked properly to be honest. I know a couple of the girls on here have them. I was gonna just search it on ebay. Failing that just put it in a hand luggage case :o)

                    You definately canot hang up your dress on board they sent me a letter advising to either put it in a seperate suitcase which will go in the hold as you get an extra 5kg luggage alllowance but mark it fragile or take it as hand luggage but would need to be in a box or in a hand luggage case.

                     

                    Lucky enough my dress came in a box which fulfils their requirement and it doesnt crease - this is my hand luggage - now FI had to look after passports and tickets etc that I usually have to look after!!!

                      Hi Ladies

                       

                      Nicy:  Your hen sounds fab hun x

                       

                       

                      Roo:  I'm so sorry to hear that your feeling down, you might also have a touch of the xmas blues, i always get down this time of year, hope you start to feel better soon xx

                       

                      Jo:  i can't believe that you leave on FRIDAY, you must be sooooo excited x
                       


                      Lyndsey:  your ring is gorgeous i love it xx
                       

                       

                      Well ladies just to update you on my wedding progress.  Now we're staying here i'm able to look at different style wedding dresses so I went out with 2 of my bridesmaids on Saturday to the shop where I saw a dress that I tried on previously and loved (Michelle by Maggie Sottero), i wanted to see if i still loved it and i do but then I found another one completely different style that i also love   (a Mori Lee) I'm booked into 3 more wedding shops over the next couple of months so i might see another dress that I love even more hahahaha, i could try on dresses every day.

                       

                      We've changed our colour scheme to Purple and White, we will be having different shades of purple, the flower girls will be in lilac and the bridesmaids in a more darker vibrant purple.  I've seen the flower girl dresses (£25 on ebay including delivery) and i've ordered one just to see what the quality and fabric is like.  I'll post a picture.

                       

                      One of my bridesmaids is the manager at Dulwich Golf Club and she has said i can have the hire of the venue for free for my sit down meal and reception, which is a big cost i don't have to pay out for. I've just got to pay for the catering so I met with the chef yesterday and told him what we wanted and he's going to give me a quote, this will be our biggest expense so i'm keen to see what figure he comes up with.  When I was there they had it set up for an evening party and that helped me visualise how it could look for the wedding and got me all excited.

                       

                      Me and FI have got an appointment to go and see the vicar of a Church near us on 23rd, it is a Church of England and has beautiful gardens for the photographs (if it's not raining), we are going to have to start attending service every Sunday so no more late Saturday's for me, but it will be worth it.

                       

                      oooooh I nearly forgot we've chosen our wedding date  Saturday 30th June 2012
