I am a bit stuck on prezzies, my MIL thinking a silver compact (she will use this), her boyfriend (My FI stepfather) thinking cufflinks and have them engraved, Natasha (my 8 yr old) thinking earrings, Joshua (my 15 yr old) thinking aftershave....... Don't know what to get my mum so any ideas would be fab fab fab!!!! To all the wives did you take confetti out with you??? Do the resorts allow it????

Hen a week Sat!!!!! all the girls are wearing black dress with bright pink sashes and names like racy rachel hee hee!! and I am wearing a bright pink dress with a black sash ordered the sashes......

      Hi to the Newbies. I love this site. We.ding dress shopping is a lot easier than i expected. Really enjoyed its just the choosing thats a nightmare,

       

      Michelle, Thanks for the info about the room. Love your Guest book you've done a great job.

       

      Samcalv, Im hoping for fans and hankerchiefs too if i can find the right colours. All the ideas sound great for me. Have you thought about a piece of jewellery for your mom like a necklace. She will always have it then to remember your day.

       

      Ta Kerry

        Hi girls, 

         

        I just had to come on and share my delight with you all. My dress came in last week and I went to try it on again today and oh my word I just love it!!! So happy with it, and to make things even better I have lost a stone since I last tried it on and boy you can tell the difference which I am totally delighted about. Feel so much happier and confident in it! 

         

        It feels incredibly real now - we fly 10 weeks tomorrow and I cannot wait. Now I have only to decide on my hair, I have decided I want some kind of sparkles in my hair - maybe a hair band or a clip. I want to wear my hair half up and I cant make up my mind what would look best? What are you girls doing? 

         

        Hope you are all good xxx

          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.

                  Thank you, im so pleased :) We are now thinking of splitting the time and going for the paradise package( is that what you went for??) but we have an hour included in our wedding package. Will e mail the co ordinator and ask if they can maybe knock some extra money off as I dont want 6 hours but definitly want the 80 pics re touched. I have looked for you on fb and carnt find you...was I right Michelle Herbert?

                    Hi Rachael Yes name is right, are you friends with Nicy or the other Michelle as they both have me on their friends list, profile photo is me & my daughter on my wedding day. I sorted the split time direct with Ledy not the wc, just make sure you take copies of any emails regarding things like this as they dont normally split their time. It will all be fine.

                      Hi to all the newbies and welcome to BDW this site will be a god send to you believe me.

                       

                      Kerry, it wasn't easy to get upgraded. Our room (family suite) was meant to have two proper beds put in it but instead it had a queen sized bed and a sofa bed, it took alot of moaning to the reps. Then the next day they came up to jay and said they would move us on  the 4th day to the honeymoon suite. It was well worth the moaning though as the view was amazing from the honeymoon suite.

                       

                      Well ive been DIYing again, went out yesterday to get a guest book but couldn't find one i liked so i havce made one. what do you think?

                      Hey Lovely

                       

                      These are fantastic :-) Really Really nice.

                      Hope you have a blast tonight at your AHR :-) xxx
