    Hi Ceri

     

    I'm only frustrated as i'm waiting to here if she has now confrimed the right place for our privent reception  as she booked the wrong one (not happy). We are aslo having beach gazebo near pier and then Zavaz plaza for reception (hopefully). We are having Doremixx DJ for us as it was cheaper than resort one and he has good reviews. We are having Cabrie do our photos she splitting her time for us 2:30-5 then coming back 6:30-9 (so we are lucky there as they dont normally split time). I am keeping on about the offers to us in the hope they will crack on that one (fingers crossed). As far as gazebo decorations go i'm having the exotic gazebo, and am still debating on bringing my own chair bows. Everything is so expensive! Are you having a cocktail hour? what time are you getting married and having your reception. Our ceremony is at 3pm and reception 6-10, not quite sure what we will do inbetween yet. We have 23 going 19Adults and 4 children at the moment still might have a few book. Did you know the children are half price of the private event price, i only knew this because i asked my wc didnt inform me before.

     

    When we went to Mexcio before we went to Xcaret, which we loved and are looking into going there again, bit of something for everyone.

     

    Michelle


    On August 2nd at 3pm at Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico I marry my best friend.

      I got the fans off ebay. A pack of 12 from Hong Kong and they were about £5. There are 10 women in the group. No not doing anymore. The men can share and use these if they want, lol. I'm guessing they wont bother.

        And that reminds me, what kind of invitations did you all go for? I was thinking to get boarding pass invitations from Etsy...i know it is a little bit risky cos they are based in US, but thought I will try cos they are sooo pretty...

         

        Thanks :-) Originally we wanted a bride & groom.. Beach themed but i couldnt find one cheap enough... they were always about £30-£40 which i just cant justify paying for a cake topper which will get used max twice if we have a AHR. Then i just thought i like the idea of out initials and these are quite a good price, Came to about £15 in total with VAT and postage.

         

        I made my invites :-) But i do

        Nicy I LOVE your topper, we are having similar! Great minds think alike ah ;o) x

         

        Josie - when you come on here MRS... i love your photos. Beautiful, you looked gorgeous, I loved your hair very pretty :o) cant wait to hear all about it xx

         

         



        Yeah, definatly :-) Are yours pink? x

         

        Jo's pix are fab... Cant believe Jo and Josie have both had their wedding now.... it amazes me how fast time is flying!! x

        Someone asked about outside vendors fee, i've had to pay $500, but our resort has put that up to $800 for new contracts which is total madness!!

         

        Nicy I love the cake topper :-)

         

         

        WOW, up by $300, bloody cheek!!! :-(
         

         

        Thanks, cant wait to get them, about 10 days... i will ost pix when they are here x

                    Oh nicy dont be disheartened. Although i know how you feel. I've also been working out hard and being good 6days a week and not hardly lost anything. It p's me off too. So i've decided to STOP weighing myself. I am sticking to it and my clothes feel looser so it must be coming of from somewhere. So i'm just now going by how i feel in my clothes. Sod the scales, lol....

                     

                    Have a lovely time hun, happy shopping :o)
