Michelle2011 *bride from the UK" planning thread *lots of pix* :o)

Recommended Posts

 

OMG its really my time to post my planning thread!! Iâ€ve been on this site for near on 2yrs and I have made so many wonderful friends and had so much advice and help from so many people. The girls on the 2011 thread, the UK thread and the Barcelo thread I couldnâ€t have done it without you all. Iâ€ve had ups and downs and everyone on here is so supportive.. I LOVE this site!! So a massive thank you to everyone (especially Nicy, my bride partner in crime ;o) thank you so much :o)

 

Ok so FI and I met 10yrs ago at a mutal friends party, we didnâ€t get together straight away as I have a little boy from a previous relationship so didnâ€t want to rush things. A year of getting to know each other we finally got together :o) FI proposed on a beach in Rhodes in 2004. We did it all a bit back to front. I already had my son Harrison, we bought a flat together then a house which needed lots of major work doing so that took up a few years (and all our savings). I then fell pregnant with my daughter Scarlett and so getting married is the final piece to our puzzle.

 

We always knew we wanted to marry in Mexico (never been before but just knew) so we researched hotels for around 5mths and just fell in love with the Barcelo Maya Palace and knew that was were we would marry.

 

We have 23 people coming with us. I have two of my best friends as BMâ€s and my sister is my MOH. Scarlett is flowergirl and my son Harrison (13yrs old now) will be giving me away :o) FIâ€s childhood friend is his bestman :o)

 

We leave in 2 weeks time :o)

 

We marry on 1st June 2011 and have our AHR on 18th June 2011 

 

Ok so here we go with the pic's..... first up "THE DRESS"

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
