    That's good, we didn't do that as I didn't want to commit my family before I had actually spoken to them. The price hasn't changed too much though, it's just started going up a bit but I reckon it will fluctuate through the year anyway. Well I'm sending invites to 40 with a definite 27 including us. What about you? I really hope so, just baffled me as some of the girls who have booked direct heard within a few days. Why does it take Thomson so long? The only reason I have is because of the difference between a civil and symbolic. They might have to find out if a minister is available x

     

    Yeah well i am roughly the same with invites, I have booked 18 of us so far including us. Yeah when I initially went in to get prices when flights were released the girl messed it all up and give me prices for this year which was a few hundred cheaper than 2017 so we will prob find that it will fluctuate. Yeah she did say to me it could take a little longer due to that. I know my other half asks everyday any word from Thomson lol. Whats your plans for wedding? Im planning sky terrace then semi private dinner then reception at beach bar.. its so hard making decision without actually seeing the resort in person. x

    That's good that you booked for all of them people when you booked. We are just going to link everyone's booking to ours, how many more are you inviting/expecting? When did you book your wedding? Would be interesting to see if we've both been waiting the same time.

     

    I'm torn between the beach or the Chapel for my wedding. I've always wanted a beach wedding but it puts me off that people can just wander through your wedding and the Chapel is so unique and different. I'm going to have a reception including dinner at the Beach bar I think, I was thinking the beach but I reckon you have to hire a dance floor (which is ridiculous). I know what you mean about it being hard to make decisions. What time have you requested? I initially put down 4.30 in the evening but I want to put it back an hour now due to some comments I had back from a photographer about best times for pictures. xx

      I booked on 4th May so two weeks ago today. I have about 15 more invites to send though personally I think many wont be able to attend due to having children and having to pay a full adult price for any kids over 2. 

      I had initially wanted the beach then i seen photos of people sunbathing beside ceremony.. not very private. I have requested 5.00pm ceremony but was thinking of getting some photos before, i just think that time of year will be too warm and wanted it as late as possible. Have you been to Mexico before? x

      We booked on 22nd April, and sent our wedding contract to the Weddings department on 23rd, however I didn't receive acknowledgement until Monday 25th, so they have had my Contract for over 3 weeks now. Although I think they have a tendency to just sit on it which I think they did.

       

      I have seen a few peoples pictures where it looks a bit more secluded, however I think I will go for the Chapel as all of our pictures will be on the beach anyway. I want to push mine back to 5.30, however I'm going to wait until our date comes through and then see if I can change it, which I'm sure i'll be able to. Nope never been before have you? I've sent an enquiry regarding the hire of the sound system, the hotels prices seem so much for what it actually is.

        O goodness so yours was sent a good bit before mine. Hopefully it wont take much longer, you will have to let me know once you get confirmation. 

        No never been a few family members have and loved it so I cant wait, im on looking at reviews and pictures near everyday lol how sad ha ha. Im planning on bringing my own sound as I have read a few have done this and worked really well, then I can do my own playlist.

        I've sent the wedding department a little chase up email today, asking how it is all going so lets see if I get a response. I'll let you know when mine is confirmed, let me know when yours is as well. You're not sad I've been doing the same as well ha ha. I didn't really think of doing that, however I think I want the equipment for the microphone for speeches etc. I was planning on hiring just the speakers so I can plug my iphone in for the playlist. Once its confirmed I will feel a lot better, I feel like its all I'm waiting for at the moment haha xx

          Yes i will let you know as soon as i hear! Hopefully they will get back to you soon then. What are you doing for hair and makeup ? Yeah i suppose you would need speakers if your having your dinner there also, we plan just to do speeches at our dinner which will be in one of the restaurants. X

          I really hope so. Well my friend who is a hairdresser is coming I hope, so she will doing my hair and my bridesmaids as well. I think I am just going to get my make-up done by the hotel, same with my bridesmaids. What about you? Its the $450 vendor fee that makes it not worth getting anyone else in. What about you, have you thought of your hair and make-up?

           

          I was going to have a semi-private dinner but I like the idea of having the whole evening to ourselves if that makes sense and its not too much more to have food if your paying for the hire fee for the area.

            My sister is doing makeup but I have not organised hair but probably use the hotel as the vendor fee is so high. I thought it was alot more to have private dinner? I havent got prices yet just be getting info on here. How much is the dinner private if you dont mind me asking?

            So to have a private three course dinner it works out about $30 a head on average which includes the location fee and the set-up and a 3 hour open bar. So I've worked out based on 25 adults and 2 children that the total cost for a private reception (not including the music equipment) is £564 based on an exchange rate of 1.4.

             

            I've got a lot of information from the hotel, they sent me all of their pricelists if you want me to email them over let me know. xx
