    Hi Ladies


    I have written this 4 times now and every time the computer freezes and I loose it arrrhhhh


    Anyway i'm now a happily married women


    Well to start with anyone on here who is getting married at Sensatori you are very lucky ladies, the resort is absoultly amazing and the staff are great.


    We got upgraded to the Honeymoon suite on our 3rd day as they had allocated us the wrong room, the Thomsons staff were great there. Our room was 4332 and we had a lovely view of the beach so I got to watch alot of weddings before ours. We had our blood tests at 9am the day after our arrival then another meeting at 1pm. We were gutted as we had to change our witnesses as they needed to send our info of before our original witnesses arrived even though my OS WC had said it was fine. Our wedding was the only wedding on our date which was great as on some days there was 3/4 weddings a day. After watching some other weddings we decided to move ours from the beach to the rooftop. Our reasons were because the beach was quite small and you had alot of random walkers by who didnt care if a wedding was going on and people all stood up the top watching (if you get married on the beach ask them to make sure the top is clear for you or you'll end up with the spectators in your photos) where as the roof was totally private even though it did cost us an extra £1000 . We then kept changing our reception from the Zavaz Plaza to the beach then back to the Zavaz Plaza.


    The day before I had my acrylic nails done in the salon, this was lovely a bit of time on my own. The morning of the wedding my bridesmaids and me went for champagne breakfast together in Spoons, this was a nice start to the day. Then at 11am my mum and I went to the spa, my mum had a manicure (included in my package) and I had a pedicure, hair and makeup done. I didnt have my hair or make up trial as I didnt want to stress if i didnt like it and I totally didnt need to worry. They had books of different hair styles and I took my tiara and diamonte pins with me. At midday my bridesmaids came and joined me in the spa they used the Bridal suite to get ready in, where they done their own hair and make up, they loved the all getting ready together and of course we had more champagne. Also they were able to use their hair sprays and one of my bridesmaids had a black eye (long story) and the spa lady covered it up properly for her. They left me at 1:45 and went back to mine to order room service. I got back at 2pm and went mad as my room had still not been cleaned and I had called them at 9am to tell them I had a photographer coming at 2:30. My mum came and started getting me in my dress and the photographer arrived, 2:50 the girls were out on the balcony having room service yep I was meant to be getthing married at 3pm there was no way i was going to be on time!! Well after a mad rush and my mum rushing back to get herself ready, photos on the balcony we left my room at 3:15. I then had to walk through the pool area with everyone cheering, clapping and taking photos the nerves started to kick in. When I got to the roof the bridesmaids and pageboys music started (Take That Greatest Day) and the tears started aswell, I started to cry uncontrollably, my girls left me with tears in their eyes and then it was just me & my dad and my music started (Bruno Mars Just the way you are) desperatley trying to stop crying we made our way down the aisle, as soon as i saw Jay beaming I couldnt stop smiling. The service was performed in spanish and translated into english this was lovely, we then had a Sand Ceremony which Harry & Hollie joined us in. The whole thing was shown on a weblink aswell which some of our friends got to see (we also got a copy on dvd as we asked for it). We then had some photos on the roof before going down to the beach for more photos. On the way to the beach my son stood on my dress and ripped my dress, my mum quickly tucked it all up (good old mum). We then went to the mexican bar and had a drink before heading to the Zavaz Plaza area for our reception. We decorated the tables with pink scatter crystals, maracas, then i had vases with pink water beadsin and the bridesmaids bouquets, I had pink light up ballons hanging around the pergola it looked lovely. we went for the Family Style dinner and wow it was amazing and so much of it. We had DJ Doremixx he was fantastic, and the balloons, masks and glow sticks he gives out went down a treat. He had everyone up dancing all night long, I didn't want the day to end! Our first dance we did a evolution dance, we started off with Savage Gardens 'I knew I loved you before I met you' then broke into various funny songs (kung fu fighter, ymca, mc hammer etc) this went down a treat erveryone laughed so much. The staff were great, they remembered everyones drinks and made sure they had a refill as soon as they had finished, they brought us various shot throughout the night. After it had finished alot of us went up to the Mojito Bar and carried on dancing and drinking. One word for the whole day 'Excellente'. I will put some photos on but if you want to see more add me one facebook Michelle Herbert, and if you want to ask anything ask away.


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

            Thanks Michelle ...... Your pics on facebook are absolutely stunning xxxx


            Thinking of having the children do a reading at the wedding. Found this and love it, what do you think?


            Now you will feel no rain,
            for each of you will be shelter for the other.
            Now you will feel no cold,
            for each of you will be warmth to the other.
            Now there will be no loneliness,
            for each of you will be companion to the other.
            Now you are two persons,
            but there is only one life before you.
            May beauty surround you both in the
            journey ahead and through all the years,
            May happiness be your companion and
            your days together be good and long upon the earth.


            Treat yourselves and each other with respect, and
            remind yourselves often of what brought you together.
            Give the highest priority to the tenderness,
            gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.
            When frustration, difficulties and fear assail your relationship,
            as they threaten all relationships at one time or another,
            remember to focus on what is right between you,
            not only the part which seems wrong.
            In this way, you can ride out the storms when
            clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives - remembering that
            even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there.
            And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of your
            life together, it will be marked by abundance and delight.

              Also thought I would frame these poems for the mothers from me.... What do you think?


              For my future mother in law


              “The One”…

              I’m thrilled and excited
              to become your son’s wife,
              for he is “The One”
              who’s the love of my life.

              Deep in his heart
              there are times I can see
              from you all he’s learned
              and the husband he’ll be.

              As his mother you loved him
              and taught him to find
              the best in himself...
              a blessing that’s mine.

              I can’t thank you enough
              for all that you’ve done,
              for the love of my life
              is “The One” who’s your son.

              Thank you for raising
              a wonderful son.

                For my mum


                I know since I was little
                you have seen in me
                a future that was bright,
                as bright as it could be.

                I know things didn’t turn out
                exactly as you’d planned,
                I’m so grateful for your constant love
                and how you understand.

                I don’t know if I told you
                or if you’ve ever known
                what your love has meant to me
                by the acceptance that you’ve shown.

                For though my life is different
                in oh so many ways,
                the love and strength I’ve found in you
                will help to light my way.

                Thank you for making my
                wedding day and my life complete.

                  I thought I would also do a reading and I love this poem


                  How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
                  I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
                  My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
                  For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
                  I love thee to the level of everyday's
                  Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
                  I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
                  I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
                  I love thee with a passion put to use
                  In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
                  I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
                  With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
                  Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
                  I shall but love thee better after death.


                  What do you all think????
