      Hey guys,

       

      Hows everyones planning going?

       

      Ive been having a nightmare with my AHR. I have ended up booking the local rugby club. £95 with room for 150 people so not too bad.

       

      But i'm not too bothered about an AHR its more for pleasing the parents!!! But with my future husbands family issues of divorces and people not speaking! I can't really be bothered! Sounds bad i know. I eventually decided on a hog roast which has been booked. But still got to decide on DJ and if we are doing any decorations etc. Really struggling to get into the planning of it!!

      Whats everyone else doing for an AHR.

       

      Where as Mexico well the planning is exciting. Ive decided on my wedding location. Flowers for me and bridesmaid picked. The free breakfast in bed and brunch for the morning after picked and booked. So exciting.

          I have booked my AHR and am having a a hog roast too I am excited that I get to wear my wedding dress twice :-)

           

          I have bought table centre pieces and am planning on booking a casino and choc fountain that will be about it I think as want to try and not go OTT on the costs as weddings are soooo expensive.

            Went to Cardiff on Monday to finish off what I need for the wedding!!!! Got my jewellery etc ..... Booked to try my dress on again for Sat as I have bought my underwear and I am not completely happy with it so I want to try it on with the dress as I have 28 days to take it back....... I am the same Kerry I am finding sorting out the AHR a chore but I am loving every minute of organising the wedding in Mexico..... If I could I think I wouldn't have the AHR to be honest its doing my head in a bit LOL...The cost isn't too bad we are having it in a local bar that has just been re-furbished and it is really lovely in there, they are not charging us for the hire and we don't have to pay to have it decorated as it is so nice already so that saves quite a bit.....  Can't believe how quickly time is going I got my hen in a fortnight!!!!!

             

            Herbie - Are you back??? Dying to know how it all went..... Can't wait to read your review and have a look at your pics xxxx

             

            I think it is Lynsey next???? Good luck x

              Selina, You are sounding a lot more organised than me!!! I'm thinking of doing a sweet table for everyone. As its simple and easy to do. And im good at buying sweets. Trying to find a cheap DJ but nothing else than that entertainment wise. Haven't even thought of decorations. Really can't be bothered. It sounds awful. But it will definately need something. Table decorations or baloons or something.

               

              SamCalv it is definately a chore. I would rather spend the money in Mexico!!!! But am pleased to be wearing my dress again. Any excuse!

               

              xx

                Hi girls, WOW its been a while since i've been on, glad to see all your planning coming along nicely. It goes so fast so really enjoy that part. I still wish i was back in Mexico ;o( sooooo need a holiday. Been so busy the last few weeks!!

                 

                Question about the marriage cert. We had to pay $55 for the apostile stamp. We bought home the legal cert from Mexico that is in spanish they then sent our legal one for over here with the apostile stamp on it in 2 months and we paid £50 for it to be translated into English. I did hear it took up to 6 mths but ours arrived in 2mths so not to bad!

                 

                We were told the same about money but honestly dollars or pesos are fine! We were worried we couldn't use $ but EVERYTHING at our hotel was charged in $'s. We could settle at the reception using either so it will be fine. We took a mixture of both in the end but could have just took $'s really as paid for most with them :o)

                 

                Hope everyone is well... not long now for some of you :o) so exciting xxx

                  Kerry a sweet table sounds found very yummy :-)

                   

                  Michelle did you need to arrange or your wed certificate to be translated into english or did the hotel arrange it?

                   

                  Thank you

                  Selina
