    Hi ladies hope you are all well? Welcome to all the newbies, this sight will become your best friend!lol We were told by our nurse that we had to have Typhoid, Tetnus and Hep A for Mexico that's it. Michelle those pink shoes are lovely, pink always wins :-) The shotglasses what a bargain and they look very good. Hankies for men thats a good idea I was a bit stuck on what to get them. Lyndsey what things did you get approved that Angie said no to?? Grace (new WC) told me we dont get and promotions because we get room rate discount, did you cos I never. Well after a shopping trip on Monday I got hollies flower girl bag from Debenhams and her sandals from Next. They are lovely pink flower sandals which match the colour on her dress.
    On August 2nd at 3pm at Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico I marry my best friend.

      Hi everyone,


      I am new to this website - recommended by Nicyx - feel as though I am in wedding chat heaven! LOL We are getting married Oct 2011 at Riu Palace Mexico - anyone else getting married there?


      We are traveling through Thomson and when I spoke to them regarding birth certificates last week as we have lost our originals she said we would need to take original copies which I have ordered through ips.gsi.gov.uk for about £10 each -she said they didn't need to be appositlized but to call back about a month before traveling

      to see if the rules have changed xx

                WOW don't log on for two days & so much to catch up on!!


                Ok firts thing first, Michelle I think am in love with your shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!  They are the most gorgeous pair of pink shoes ever, I keep going back & looking at them, fab fab fab!!  & shot glasses BARGAIN of the week or what??  Like Nicy I would definitely keep mine.  I like the idea of hankies & your right I think the men would appreciate something to stop the sweat dripping!!


                For our hotel we would just need birth certificates (un apostilled & legalised) & passports if Richard hadn't had a name change.  As he has we had to pay £68 to have  his papers legalised & apostilled by the foreign office & then £231 to be translated into spanish then the $200 blood tests in resort.  Is is a bit extra we had to pay out for but when you consider the average wedding in the UK costs £18K it seemed a small price to pay....lol!!


                Harrisons little suit came today so cute, I'll have to take a picture of him in it!!  Oh that Phenergan medicine my doctor recommended I get it!!  It is traditionally a motion sickness & allergy medicine but also knocks little ones out.....we have 11 children travelling in our party so after a couple of hours on the plane I am going to be like Mary Poppins & get my spoon & medicine out & give them all a dose!!....lol  It is definitely on my 'must have list'.....am going to try it out before though as like Jo says in a small percentage of children it does have the opposite effect......I bet that Harrison will be in that percentage & be rampaging down the aisles!!  Everyone around us on the aeroplane is going to hate us anyway with 39 adults & 11 children all together....lol

                    hi kerri.. yeah she does semm fantastic.

                    we have discussed alot really but obviously final decisions will be made in our app..

                    we are getting married at 4.30pm on the 5th october but maybe changing to the 4th..having our reception meal in the italian as theres 2 of us so far only place that will accomodate all of us plus its semi private.

                    not sure what we will do after the meal, the private events are so exspensive, i would like a private area where we can have drinks & a dance etc..


                    hows your plans going. x

                      Planning is going ok - I have dress, shoes etc -all on my photos - Just looking for favours now - what is everyone else doing? I love Nicyx cake toppers so I looking at ordering something similar 


                      Has anyone heard much about the hairdresser/make up artist at the Palace Mexico? As you can see I have very curly/frizzy hair and I am dreading having my hair done for the day - can't even find anyone who can do it nicely in the UK! LOL I will definitely be looking like Monica!


                      What is Phenergan? I have a 2 yr old traveling with us and I know she will be ok for about the first 20 mins - not sure about the other 10 hrs! LOL
