Love those flip flops char!

 

Had my hen party on Saturday nite - i am far to old to stay out until 4.30 - i couldnt move on Sunday!  When shopping with BMs on Monday and got them a pashmina each and flower for their hair; yesterday got my underwear and my final dress alteration underway. 

 

FIs stag next weekend, Christmas shopping to do and then all of the sudden it will be time for us to depart - arrrggghhh - 7 weeks on Friday.  Gonna have to do a final list tonight and work out how much money I need to find in 7 weeks - we have been so lucky though we havent used our credit cards once - but have had no money to ourselves for months - but I'm sure I wont regret it  x



josie let me see your final list.... you seem to be a lot more organised than me, and we leave in 6 weeks....

 

have you got photos from your hen do? 4.30am is most impressive, i was comatose by 1 on my hen do, and managed 3 on our hag do but it was a messy affair!

 

i hear you on the money front, everything is paid for, but with my car dying a couple of weeks ago, that used up the last of my stash and we're now on credit card spending.... got all xmas pressies done tho, and hopefully santa will bring me some pennies.....

we got our first wedding card today from our neighbours who are going back to england tomorrow for xmas.... i was desperate to open it to see if there's some €€€€€ in there, but apparently we have to wait! got to buy underwear and shoes now, my primark bridget jones' will not do at all!

 

@michelle, thanks for the advice on cerazette, 3 weeks later and my skin has cleared up loads, still got marks from old zits, but no new ones, and hopefully a week of sun will hide a multitude of sins....

 

@nicy, which dress did you finally go for?



OMG time is just going way to fast..... Luckily for you ladies :-)

Oh no trust your car to go at this time!!! Typical.... always the way :-(

 

I have gone with the Benjamin roberts dress

well josie, every hen needs a penis straw! i lost mine at some point, may have had it removed after poking it into strangers ears while they were ordering drinks at the bar.... some men have no sense of humour!

 

i think those mexico vows are lovely, i must be having a soppy 5 minutes.....

Josie - I love the pictures on FB, can't believe you only have 7 weeks to go.  How funny about the legal ceremony 'a woman must bow down to a man', my Wayne will love this part...lol.  I'm gonna have a read of it now.  Thanks for posting. x

 

 

Samcalv1 - I would probably wait until the new year and see what the update is and if they're taking bookings, at least you can get Christmas out of the way and most people probably wouldn't book until after Christmas anyway....fingers crossed it all works out for you.  x

My first kind of weddingy thing happend yesterday,

 

As you all know I'm not getting married until July 2012 (feels like forever), but I got a text from my cousin yesterday to say that she is organising my hen party and has contacted 'those involved' and they will be giving her deposits within the next couple of months as she needs to book it up because the place gets booked up quickly???? apparantly the girls are all chipping in to pay for me too which is a result. All i know is that it is a hen weekender and there are about 20 girls coming and it is sometime in June 2012, 4 weeks before the wedding, which is good because it will probably take me about 1 month to recover because when my girls party it is always very very messy....so excited but i've got soooooooo long to wait.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
