      Jenna We got married at 3pm on august 2nd and it was 40Degrees then so it was very hot but there was a nice breeze up on the roof and on the beach. But every day is different as some days there was no breeze so the heat was intense. Sorry can't really help much.
      On August 2nd at 3pm at Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico I marry my best friend.

          Yeah really excited but my hotel is really bad at getting back to us via e-mail, I have sent them a few and I haven't heard from them since beginning of August so I am a bit worried about that, just hoping that everything will be ok when we get there!!!! 7 sleeps yippeeeee, we are flying on Sun @ 9:15 from Gatwick but we are going up by train the day before and staying in a hotel the night before as it  is an early flight!!!! Had a good deal on the hotel!!!! So I feel like my holiday starts on the Saturday!!!! (hubby to be) has packed!!!! Not me tho lol gonna pack on Thurs.......Everyone has a suitcase each got a wedding dress box to put my dress in as that will go as hand luggage with Thomsons, think Calvin might take his suit as hand luggage as well!!!  x

           

          You do sound very organised lol x Even tho I am quite stressed at the mo I do think I am gonna miss the wedding planning when it's all over!!!!! lol x

            It'll be fine hun.. Do u mean the wedding coordinator hasnt been email u back? Have u arranged everything that needed to be arranged beforehand? If you have previous emails from them confirming things I would print them off just incase.. At least uve got it in writing about certain things then.. Omg we fly on a Sunday at 9.15am from Gatwick next year!! And we're staying the night before too! lol.. You must be looking for stuff to do now lol.. Did u get your bridesmaid dresses from a bridal shop or somewhere else? Theyre so expensive in the bridal shop (£200+ each and £189+ for flowergirls, I have 2 bridesmaids and 4 flowergirls!) im very tempted to get them online.. Ive heard of this site and seen the quality of the dresses and theyre about £70 for bridesmaids and £50 for flowergirls.. a big saving!! I dont know what im gonna do with myself after the wedding planning.. My desk in work is covered in 'Mexico 2012' papers lol.. How long are u going for hun? xxx

              Well girls what has been the biggest nightmare during the wedding planning. The other halfs family!!!!

               

              I asked my husband to be, sister to be bridesmaid as i wanted to try and get to know his family a bit better and thought some time together shopping may help the whole family get in the wedding mood as they haven't been very interested.

               

              My close friends all are either pregnant or have young babies so would be stressed out in the heat with that so didn't want them to worry about me so seemed like the perfect solution!!!

               

              Well the wedding is now 6 months away and around a month ago i asked his sister to go bridesmaid dress shopping!! Answer: I haven't lost enough weight yet i'm not buying it yet. I bit my lip and thought i'll try again in a month.

               

              Well starting to stress about it a bit now as want to buy the mens shirts to match and other accessories. So i asked her to come to the National wedding show with me in an attempt to talk to her about it and discuss buying one whilst at a big wedding show. She said she had booked the night off work and was coming.

               

              The day before my other half phoned her to say i would pick her up at 9.30am. Its an hour away and started at 10am so thought this was a reasonable time. She replied i can't im on nights i can't get up that early.

               

              I thought she had the night off but understood work is work!!!

               

              Well it turns out she had got the night off work and had decided she had a better offer of a night out on the piss and couldn't get up early to go with me!!!!

               

              To say i was angry was a understatement. She clearly has no interest in actually being a bridesmaid. She wants to pick the dress without me and the examples of the dresses she has shown me so far look more like a clubbing dress than a bridesmaid dress and in the wrong colour which i had already told her about, Turn up on the day and be the centre of attention! She hasn't even asked about a hen party.

               

              Now you would think by that description she was 18 or 19 no she is a 25 year old nurse!!!

               

              I now have to decide whether to keep her as a bridesmaid. I havemt asked anyone else i only wanted one bridesmaid and everyone else being keen and interested have already brought their outfits in the summer sale. Do i have a bridesmaid at all??  I'm concerned with my other half having a best man it will look strange. What a dilemma!!!

               

              Help!!!!

                Ooh god, thats awful.. And drama is the last thing you need at the moment with the stress of planning a wedding!! She does sound alot like an 18 year old.. Whether to have her as bridesmaid is your choice.. It would balance things out with your best man.. How close is your husband to be with his sister? Does he have an opinion?

                 

                If you think that having her is not worth to hassle I would tell her.. Explain to her that you've had enough things to deal with whilst planning this wedding and her attitude is not helping.. Tell her that if she isnt that bothered about being a bridesmaid that she can simply be a guest! And you were only trying to get to know her better as you going to be family..

                 

                I hope this helps anyway! Let me know what u decide! xxxx

                  Hello UK brides

                   

                  I stumbled accross this thread and am so happy theres loads of UK brides, its soooo helpful to read all your stories. Jenna has been a brilliant mine of information so far (thanks hun!) . We are hoping for Sensatori in March 2013, not yet booked, we are waiting to get the expense of Xmas out of the way. The only way we can book is over the phone, as we live in the Isle of Man and the only chain of travel agents we have here is Thomas Cook, and as theyre in money trouble, we're not going there lol. I have to say the wedding team at Thomsons have been great but I was a bit dissapointed with what they offer so contacted 2 USA travel agents to see if booking the hotel & flights that way would work out cheaper & I have to say, it seems we get quite a good deal! I was shocked at the quotes they came back with so I wont be moaning anymore lol I'm very excited and cant wait to book, Ive never ever been this eager to get Xmas done and out of the way!! xx
