    This things of everything being FREE with Vistaprint is a load of old pony - lol. You do get FREE offers after you have ordered stuff with them but you still have to pay for the delivery so its not FREE as everyone says they make it up on the postage. Plus if you upload an image they charge you extra, if you have colour on both sides of a postcard they charge you extra - it is cheap but not as cheap as you think.

      Great idea regarding the six pence - I've already got one and it's kind of been in the family for ages, the women pass it on to the next bride to be and so on. Would offer to share it also, but think my Mum would hit the roof!!

      Can't believe how many UK brides there are!
      I'm the same - travelling with Thomson and we get 30kg inc hand luggage - my dress will be my hand luggage - we are not Platinum though. Thats 30kg for bride and groom all other guests are 25kg. Some people are coming out with Thomas Cook and they only get 18KG!!

      I have to say I am quite good at packing as done alot of back packing over the years. My BMM though is hideous and when we went to Italy she had to use 5kg of mine!!

        apparently getting out there with extra weight isn't too bad, it's getting back, they are really strict

        also remember you have about £30 per person to pay on your way home in departure tax xx

          I'm with Monarch and it's 20kg and 5kg for hand luggage. NO additonal for wedding ettire etc..Everyone is the same... so it will have to go in!! Monarch are pants....but say you can have your wedding dress in hand luggage my worry is i have a "big" dress and might go over the weight....

                Oh the $50 dollar departure tax - forgot about that! Last time I went the were strict about that too, had to be in dollars not peso's and a fifty dollar note!! Might be worth putting it to one side as soon as you get there!! Although I'm thinking of not paying it and letting them keep me there forever!!

                Oh does every know that you have to kind of pre book your passports for visa's before you get to the airport. Your TA can do it for you online. It's only a new thing and we weren't aware of it until some of our guests were told the other month when booking!
                We had to do it for ready for Las Vegas, but not sure if that covers us for Mexico as well!

                    From what I can make out it's kind of like arranging your visa before you even get there. It's pretty quick and easy to do - planning on take ours in to our TA over the weekend so should find out more then! Will post more info after!

                    WoodsLou - if you get time can you just let me know what documents you are taking with you. I think I have most of them ready, but just want to check?
                    Thanks
