      Hello, we are attending my brother's wedding at the sandals in antigua.  The bride is getting her hair done as part of her package. My mother and I were wondering if we could also get our hair done as well. Do they do guests?  Any help would be awesome!!! We go in June!! Can't wait!

        Hi Sarah,

         

        It looks like you had a great time.  Thanks for posting pics.   

         

        Definitely a good idea to avoid the  beach.  I'll look forward to reading what you find out. 

         

        I'm sure you ladies aren't affected, but UK is struggling with this ash cloud again & flights are being cancelled.  It's a real worry for the ladies flying out of here to various destinations.   

         

        Talk soon.

        Hi everyone!  Here's is a photo of me and my wonderful shower hostesses- my mom, MIL, best friend and her mom.  I had a great time and the ladies gave me lots of great gifts.  It was an international shower too- at any one time English, Portuguese and Spanish were being spoken.

         

        Alex- I haven't chosen my venue yet.  I have definitely decided against the beach and I'm going to look for a place that is kind of away from everything.  I'll let you know what I discover.  2 weeks!! 

         

        Talk to you soon.

          Hi Kym,

           

          Congratulations to your brother.  I'm sure you'll have a great time in Antigua.    Are  you staying at Sandals?  If so yes, guests can have their hair done either in the spa or in the same room as the bride.  Does your brother have a wedding planner, probably either Dania or Ebony.  She will be able to advise pricing.  if not, let me know & I'll check through my paperwork for pricing for you.  

           

          Let me know if you need anything else & I'll try my best to help.  When in June will you be there?

              Hi ladies...we have been just so busy.  My son had prom on Saturday night...I cried.  They grow up way too fast. 

               

              Alex:  I sent our documentation to our WC a couple weeks ago via the fax number they gave and I also emailed them to make sure and I received an email confirmation back from a Ms. Garcia saying all things were in order and we needed to hand carry originals with us.  I would email your wedding coordinator to make sure they received everything.  Oh haha and smores are these delightful little treats where you roast a marshmallow over a fire and put it in between two graham crackers and a piece of chocolate so the warm marshmallow warms the chocolate and makes it all gooey...yum yum :) .   I'm sure you have heard of it but maybe call it something different.  We love to do them in the fire pit on our back deck at home.  And your girls day will be so much fun.  A couple of my friends are taking me for a whole girls day too with spa and then dinner/drinks.  I am so looking forward to it and my best friend of 30 years is coming out for it too.  Cannot wait!!

               

              As I said before I had a trash the dress moment in which I decided I hated my dress lol...

              I think I may have found my dress here is the link http://www.maggiesot...spx?style=S5289 I would love to hear what you guys think.  I am going this weekend to try it on.  I love how it looks in the picture but as you know we just don't know what it will look like until we put it on.

               

              I think it is a good idea to do the romantic dinner maybe later in the trip...i never thought of that.  I need to definitely get a hold of ebony and get some more info on the flowers.  Hopefully she will respond :(

               

              Sweetness I am so jealous that you are packing and getting ready to go...I'm so happy and excited for you I know you both will have a fabulous time. 

               

              Sarah so glad you had a great shower.  Not long before you start packing too.  I'm sure you will be so busy in the next few days.

                Hi Kym,

                  You are going to have so much fun!  I checked on getting my MOH's hair done and it was $70.  I think there might be an additional charge if you do it in your room.  When are you going to be there?

                 

                Sweetness, have a wonderful time.  We are going to be there May 31-June 11.  Will you still be there?

                 

                Alex, you haven't lived until you've had a s'more!  That's so scary about the volcano ash.  I would be so stressed out.  It should be totally clear by the time you go, right?

                 

                Viki, you're going to have a great spa day.  How fun to be able to hang out with a best friend of 30 years.  I hope my best friend and I stay together that long.  It feel like we will.  She's my MOH and this is her first Caribbean trip so I'm excited to show it to her.  I also have a friend of 20 years coming to the wedding also.  I haven't seen her in years so it should be a lot of fun.

                  Hi ladies,

                   

                  What a busy day it’s been.  I feel like I haven’t stopped!!

                   

                  Viki – Ah I’ll bet he looked fantastic.  They do grow up so quickly. 

                  I think I’ll also send Dania a copy of our documentation just to be on the safe side.  Could you imagine if you turned up there to find they didn’t have it & they wouldn’t marry you.  What a nightmare that would be.  If Dania will ever return my email, I’ll ask her for the fax no.

                   

                  S’mores sound fantastic.  We don’t have anything like that over here – but I’ll be keeping an eye out in case I can have any in Antigua.  I definitely like the sound of those.  Unfortunately my friend has had to cancel our day out in London.  I’m gutted as was really looking forward to it, but it’ just one of those things & can’t be helped.  I still have my other Hen Night to look forward to. Your day sounds brilliant.  You’ll have so much fun  I hope you’ll be posting pictures.  When do you have that planned for?

                   

                  LOVING your dress.  Its absolutely stunning.  Be sure to let us know how you got on at the weekend & if it’s ‘the one’.

                  We decided to go with the romantic dinner on our last night because we thought it would be a lovely way to end the holiday / honeymoon.   It sounds like you’re having the same communication problems with Ebony that we are with Dania.

                   

                  Sweetness – 4 days to go....WOOP WOOP!!  So excited for you.  I cant wait to hear all about it see your pics.   I doubt that you’ll be on here until afterwards now, but GOOD LUCK – not that you’ll need it.  Have a truly fantastic day.  All that planning & its now here. ENJOY!!

                   

                  Sarah – 13 days to go.  How you doing?  Mixture of nerves & excitement I shouldn’t wonder.  Are you all ready or do you still have any last minute things to do?  It sounds like you’ll have a brilliant time & how great is it that your friend of 20 years is coming.  What a marvellous way to catch up.

                   

                  Talk to you all soon.

                    Alex- That's about right.  Nerves and excitement.  Mostly excitement right now because of the trip.  I think the nerves will hit me closer to the actual ceremony.  I don't know why I'm nervous.  All I have to do is not trip and say "I do" whenever anyone asks me a question

                    Hi ladies,
