So we have been together for 6 years, engaged for 5 and due to coming into a little extra money we decided to get married while we had the chance, hence the quick timeframe and wanting to get married ASAP as it’s been a long time coming
Booked it in February and chose October 1st as it’s our 6 year anniversary and we wanted a date that meant something but not your typical Valentine’s day or anything like that.
So there is 10 of us in total, small and intimate is just what we wanted, basically our parents and siblings. Me, hubby to be, my Mum and Dad are flying out Wed 24th Sep for 14 nights, so we have a full week either side of the wedding. Our remaining 6 family/guest fly out Saturday 27th for 7 nights.
We have chosen the beach gazebo, we get married at 5pm so it’s a little less crowded and not mid day heat, followed by a private meal for all 10 on the beach with a private bar and musician (Saxaphone) – we have picked our menu (Fish starter, surf and turn main, chocolate for dessert and then coffee) and that’s about as much as we have planned not a lot I know.
Given that there is only 10 of us though, there isn’t much to organise really as I am guessing we will only have 1 table for all 10 or 2 tables of 5, I have started drafting an email today to the wedding co-ordinator to start finalising things. I need to find out what the plan b will be if it rains, the wedding co-ordinator on site is apparently AMAZING, however they don’t really allow to work with her until you arrive on re-sort which is a bit annoying.
Yes I have my dress, it has taken 6 months to make and I had my first fitting last weekend, my dress was made to measure but I am a little on the plump/curvy side so have been on a diet and exercise since January 5th and I have lost 35 pounds ( 2 and half stone) and my dress was HUGE, so given it was made to measure I am thrilled!!! Because I want to keep losing weight they have told me that we can leave off the final measurements until August 9th so I have 9 weeks to give it my all and hopefully shift a lot more pounds and keep fit and healthy.
The boys are wearing chino shorts and shirts, my Fiance is wearing light blue/teal shorts with a white shirt and teal tie, he wants the other men is cream shorts with white shirt and teal tie.
We are also having an ipod system, no need for a party with DJ with only 10 of us, we just want to relax and enjoy the beach for the evening so we thought the ipod system would work great but again we need to sorting out a play list.
I thought oh this is great not much to organise it will be a breeze but now we are so close I was like OH OK WE HAVE EVERYTHING to do haha!
So that’s where we are at, starting from today we should be making progress!!!
Keep you all posted ladies xx
Hi Stefadile - oh that's good to know, I kind of feel I have been a bit too laid back but given how small the wedding is, I think as you say, we should be able to get a lot finalised in a matter of weeks
A few people said they actually change their minds on a lot of things once they met Claribel on the resort as she is brill and just knows what works best for all situations
When do you get married? x
