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 :-)

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.

    • Hi! Thanks for sharing this story. Happy married life! If you once will need a website, here are the tips to choose a proper style and purpose. What is the purpose of a website?  Everyone finds a good reason to create a website! But in general, we can say that the websites are being created to offer a useful service that others will use. It can even be free, although if this is something really cool, you can always make money on it!
    • Hello All.. I am new to this forum and I am here to learn and share wedding clothing, jewellery tips. Hope my journey will be great here!!
    • 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!
