    Hay girls, my understanding was that when we have our legal wedding in Mexico we will get a 'dummy' if you like cert to take away with us and the actual legal cert is sent off (by our hotel) and they have the aposile stamp put on it. Then it is sent home to us 4 to 6 months later and we would be legally married here. It has to have the apostile stamp to be legal in this country. We'd then need to have it translated i suppose... that's the just of what i got. I will ask the girls on the barcelo site to see if they can help more but most of them are from America so dont know if same rules apply :o/

     

    Rings - FI's ring is palladium, he got his in Fraser Hart at Lakeside. It was just under £400 and he got a little discount on that. Mine is white gold with diamonds and was £575 but with MIL discount i got £230 off that.

     

    Awww bless my lovely friends, i was picked up by Donna who is also coming to Mexico, she drove us round to Laura's (one of my BM's) and there was a big L plate on the front door, Kate (my other BM) opened the door and they had our friendship song playing. I walked in the kitchen and they had banners all around the room with Mexican symbols and wedding bits on and a big banner saying 'pre mexico meal'.. all along the kitchen were pictures they printed off on board had 'your soul mate' on with me and FI on it, then 'your kids' , 'your family' and 'your girls'... all with pic's on them.. it was so lovely. They printed off a fact booklet for me and Laura had cooked us a Mexico meal of chilli, tacos, etc ...it was just so lovely, so thoughtful, nobody has ever done anything like that for me before, i was really touched. I had to wear a flashing hen badge and a bright pink top hat head band! So cute, so lovely, i'm very lucky to have my girls :o) xx

        I have also emailed my WC to confirm exactly what happens regarding the wedding cert. Although she prob wont reply. Yes it did bring a tear.... It was so thoughtful of them :o) Can't wait for my hen, 3 weeks to go :o)

          Oh Michelle it was so lovely of your friends to make such a sweet surprise for you!!! :)))xx It borough tear to my eye just by reading about it, so can imagine how you felt, you are really blessed with such an amazing girls :)))x

           

          About the rings, you see, I thought that they shouldn't be that expensive lol :D especially usually high street prices are slightly higher too, so will definitely shop around to find better deal and special ring too, ...cos the ones we saw where not anything special to be honest..

           

          In regards to MIL lol, at least you got something good out of her, a nice discount on your rings lol :D

           

          xoxo

              Last night very pleasant lady arrived to show us a lot of rings and we spend probably about an hour trying them all on :))) I found few that I think I like but nothing special to be honest and my FI now knows more or less what he wants his ring to be as well, which is great!!! :)))

               

              He decided to have palladium ring, cos its just like platinum (they are from the same family) but 3 times less expensive :D and after talking to Smooch ladies I decided to have palladium wedding ring too, cos my engagement ring is platinum and apparently you can wear these two together without any problems cos they are almost the same thing :))) which i was really happy about cos I didnt want to spend a £1000 on my wedding ring...

              So when she gave us prices of the rings we have chosen we were quite surprised...and not in a good way lol :D We new that palladium is quite cheap so we expected for my ring to be around 500-600 and similar for his....but it happened that his ring came up to £680 and mine...£900!!!!

               

              Is this normal you think, how much did you girls pay for your rings...if you don't mind me asking! :))x

               

              I mean if that's how much they cost everywhere then of course we will buy them, but it seemed to us that its a lot of money for palladium rings and especially that I think we have saw some on wedding fair we liked and they were no where near that much...

               

              But anyway, after meeting last night we have decided to shop around lol cos we have plenty of time on our hands, so we arranged meeting with Goldfinger ppl and thanks to Michelle C we are meeting Sara 16th April as well :))) it will be day after my Birthday as well, which is great :D

              By the way I have spoke with Sara via email and she seems very lovely , so I am really looking forward to our meeting, thank you so much once again Michelle C :))x

               

              Wow wrote the hole essay here, sorry girls

                  another thing i forgot to say which i'm getting from other brides is, you can use the copy when you get home to change your names in Doctors, dentists and such places but you need the legally stamped one for banks and passports etc.. :o)

                   

                  I am feeling OK today thank you ladies, i'm just hoping i'm on the mend now. Really on eggshells that the pain will come back but probably all in my head. I have a niggley pain in my abs but i'm gonna just take it easy over the weekend and see how it goes :o)
