    Hello ladies! :)

     

    I am new to this site and just recently came across you lot - it's so nice to see someone from UK too! :D I am not getting married in Mexico, instead we decided to go for Dominican Republic (all booked in for March 2012), but even so thought I will say hi to all of you from another destination bride and good luck in planning! :))

    FYI, my heart goes to you ladies who don't get along too well with their MIL's...mine has been devil ever since we got engaged...:((( but at least, looking at the bright side, now I know the way she really is and I will try and stay away from her as much as it is possible!:D

     

    Happy planning to all of you!!! :) xoxo

          Hello Michelle! :)

           

          It's so nice to find a place like this with a lovely gals like you all for support and to share all this wonderful experience of planning the happiest day of our lives! :D

           

          My fiance proposed to me in November last year and since then we started to plan our big day, we wanted to get married in October, however after looking through finances decided to move it to March 2012!

          We are getting married in Dreams La Romana in DR, I personally never been there, but my fiance has been, so I trust him with it completely lol :) We booked it all just a couple of days ago, soooo exciting, we are leaving UK 29Feb and hopefully will be able to have our wedding on 6th of March. However I am still waiting for the TA to come back to me with confirmation. There will be only our closest friends and family there, but I am sure we will have tones of fun :D

          Michelle, I have been reading this thread and it's soooo helpful, gave me sooo many more ideas that I even decided to make a list lol :D Although our big day is still a year away, i know that time will pass very quickly :))

           

          xoxo

              that reminds me nicy, if you´re getting bags of rose petals as part of your package, and you want them scattering by a little person, take something to put the petals in as they come in a plastic bag with a bit of ribbon on it!

               

              i never even noticed at the time, but looking back ath the wedding video today, it´s really funny, mia´s got her flowers and a polybag of petals! i´d have brought a cone or a little basket or something if i´d have thought of it!

                    Hello Nicyx,

                    Jo thanks so much for that, as at the mo we are debating on having our niece as a flower girl, only thing is we dont know if she is too young? She just turned 1 at xmas and she is walking but i dont know if she will understand etc? We will play it by ear i think, do you think 18 months is too young? But that is fab to know as if we go for it then i will have to take a basket or cone. Thanks again x

                      amurka just noticed your hotel is in Bayahibe... We stayed at the Iberostar Hacenda Dominicus in 2006 that is in Bayahibe.... Beautiful Beautiful Place.

                      If you can do the Seona Island trip when your there i would definatly reccommend it.

                      We got a speedboat out to the middle of the ocean where it stopped and it was only waist deep, we all got out to swin and we got starfish to hold which the guy found on the bottom of the sea :-)

                      Then we went on to Seona island, it is the island that years ago the bounty advert was filmed... and i SWEAR its paradise on earth :-) Then we got a Catamaran back where we had a party :-) It was great x

                      This pic was taken MILES & MILES out at sea... I shit you not that it was unbelievable and i still cant believe that it was wast deep that far out.....

                      OH and do excuse the hair etc... lol :-)
