    Apologies in advance ladies i havent leart how to quote other peoples posts yet.

    Nicyx....The sixpence idea is fab i am definatly in

    Michelle....You said your dress is too big for hand luggage, which dress have you gone for?, sounds like Monarch are a bit rubbish on luggage allowance, what ashame.

    Kerry....The starfish bouquet jewellary is stunning and has giving me some ideas thankyou and even better that they do it in turqoise :-) I am going to have a browse round their site and see what else i can find.

    Lyndsey....Welcome to the forum its fab that you have so many people going with you.

    Josie.....Thank you for compiling the list for UK brides its great their is so many of us lots of tips to share.

    Nicy & Kerry.....You guys are doing great on your weight loss journeys i have just started mine and finding it soooooo difficult lol.

    I am getting a few ideas together now but havent bought anything as of yet because have car, home insurance etc due so as soon as those are paid i am gonna get cracking i am having a dilemma about shoes at the moment because it is a beach ceremony heels are not going to be appropriate on the sand so not sure if to have them bare feet or with flat sandals, my other half is suggesting wedges but not sure if it will work, what are you guys doing for shoes?

      As my wedding is going to place down on the beach and you have to walk across a wooden platform and down some steps (I have been to the hotel b4) I am going to go either bare foot or have the bare foot sandals - I think Nicy has already made some. As for me this is what having a beach wedding is all about ie; feeling the sand between your toes. I am then going to get some bling flip flops for the evening (I havent got any yet). We have our AHR in Feb the week after we come back so have got some flat wedding pumps for this as my dress has already been made to this length.

The 12th is a thursday so if we don't get that we might get offered friday 13th! i hope not i feel like we'd be jinxing it!! 7 is still a nice number, we were shocked at how many people actually booked up for us!x
          I believe if you request a date they are quite good in giving it, especially for girls like us who book a year or so in advance, Fingers crossed for you that you get the 12th :-)
          We fly out on the 1st (sunday) and requested 6th its our 5th working day which is great as then we have the whole of the 2nd week to mini honeymoon, desperatly hoping to get away later in the year just the two of us on another mini honeymoon so to speak but it really depends on the funds x

          At the bottom of the messages we have posted there are a few things you can click on such as "quote" and "mq"

          well to just quote one message click the "quote" button at the end of that message. to quote multiple messages click the "mq" button at the bottom of every message you want to quote then on the last one in the group you want to quote press the "quote" button...


          Hmmm... Hope that makes sense!!!!!!

          Excellent, glad your in with the sixpence, im going to order mine at the weekend i think... in plenty of time for the next UK weddings :-)

          Ive just done 30 mins on exercise bike tonight and ARGH... i hate it so much.... but i just have to picture Mexico and its enough to spur me on (along with Stephen) :-)

          As for shoes well for the ceremony im wearing barefoot sandals, i havent actually got a proper pic of mine yet, just one of them flat out. its on my to do list to take one on my feet but i will do that at a later date....

            Josie your shoes are lovely where did you get those from? I am thinking of wearing sandals or bare foot for the ceremony and putting heels on for the evening, not sure for the bridesmaids yet will probably be sandal/flip flop between the toe type ones lol these are the ones i am thinking of.
