1.) WC hasnt been intouch and they say 2-3 months before you go they do. I emailed her last Sun, still no reply.

2.) Make up, was going to do it myself, woke up dreaming of make up, had to phone my mum to have a wobble... SO im just going to get the resort to do it now... one less thing to think about ( i was worried the type of make up to buy, colour to buy as my face will be a different colour on wedding day, and scared id look no different and cant apply it propery and id panic which would get me hot which would cause my hair to frizz)

3.) We have NO music :-( I dont know where to start, EVERYTHING i like Stephen hates and vise versa AND we dont have "A SONG" like most people.

4.) What if Stephen hates the dress and he has something in his mind of how he wants me to kinda look and its nothing like it.

5.) Still got rsvp's for AHR outstanding, more need to reply than that have replied (if that makes sense)

6.) I havent managed to loose the weight i wanted

 

There is prob more which i will think of as soon as ive pressed submit no doubt, but im sure thats enough for now!!! Haha!!!!

 

Sorry I think i just needed to get it of my chest...

 

Thanks for being here girls, I HONESTLY DO NOT KNOW what i would have done with out EACH AND EVERYONE of you over all this process...

I wish i could have you all at my wedding, We have all been through lots together and would be nice to share it all with you.... At least you have the pix to look at :-)

 

xxxxxxxx

 

 

 

Hey Nicy

 

I often come on here and read what you ladies are doing and what stages you are all at but I had to reply to your post as honestly I went through absolutely every feeling you have listed.

1. I had some contact with the WC during the build up to the day but nothing about 2 months before I left I literally turned up at the hotel not knowing what to expect but as soon as we got to reception and checked in they knew we were getting married; treated us like royalty and the next day we had a note under the door from the WC confirming our meeting.  They are just so laid back and honestly there is no need to stress.  I didnt even know anything about times, what to say etc until it all took place - once you are there you wont worry.

 

2.You will look beautiful and Stephen will think so too he already thinks you are beautiful thats why hes marrying you.  I did my own make up and was most worried about skin tone as obviously I was hoping to have a much browner face than I went with - I found the best foundation and its really cheap the Max Factor skin colour adapt foundation i got a darker shade than i would use at home and it blended perfectly.  Also I get spots on my chin but remember the sun will make your skin perfect!!

 

3. We had no music until the week before we left as we too didnt have 'our' song - FI likes Robbie Williams as do I of course so knew if I chose an artist he liked he would agree to the first dance song which in the end was ' Only u know me'.  Walking down the aisle I chose Elbow Beautiful Day - because I knew it would be!!  What artists / groups does your FI like maybe we could think of some first dance suggestions?

 

4. He WILL NOT hate your dress - men only expect the woman they are marrying to be in white - they have no other expectations; to men a wedding dress is a wedding dress they dont give it much thought.  However when he sees the dress you have picked he will think it is the most beautiful dress and will be etched in his memory forever as what a wedding dress is - your beautiful dress.

 

5. We had this problem with AHR rsvps as we needed to know final numbers before we left - even close family didnt reply until my husband got stroppy over it - then we had 20 more people turn up than we expected!  Broadcast on FB and also email people and just say if your name is not on the list you cannot come and generally people do reply.

 

6. I lost about a stone over the course of a year then as I got married in January, Christmas was upon us I ate and drank for England and did when I was out in Mexico as well.  So on the day I got married I weighed nearly the same as I did when I said I was gonna lose 2 stone - lol!! Wedding dresses have a great way of holding you in, everyone looks and feels more confident with a tan, and the whole of your wedding guests will see you in a bikini before you walk up the aisle.

 

Now my weddings over with I'm to put a pizza in the oven.

 

xxxxxxxxxx

Nicy sweetie, you shouldn't worry at all about anything!!! :Dxx You will be the most beautiful bride and everything will be perfect on your special day, you will see :)))x Just think very soon you will be looking back and laughing about worries you had, cos everything will turn out beautiful :)))

If you feel very nervous, I got the name of some herbal tablets of my sister (she was taking them before she got married too cos she was quite stressed as well) - she got them in boots and they called "Valerian root extract" tablets. Apparently you take couple of them and it just generally helps you to relax, helps to take it before bed too :))) So you could try those, maybe they will help you too hon :))xx

Im going to El Dorado Royale Casitas. Which is a separate section of the Royale. Has room serice included, in room bars and is very private with beds on the balcony with the advantage with being able to use the Royale bars and restaurants. It isnt in Playa Del Carmen though. Hope that helps.

We are looking for an 'adults only', 5 star, preferably all inclusive, with all the extras like room service, mini bar in room etc.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
