    I'm staying in the Melia Bonoa, but getting married at a private beach villa further north, on the 28th April 2008

    Where are you staying?
  • Hi, im staying there too, how come your not getting married there? That is so cool that were staying at the same place although i get there at the end of May! How many guests are you taking with you? x

    We wanted someonwhere a bit more private than on a beach, or the hotel grounds- didn't want any half naked germans lingering in the background!!

    Its has cost a lot more, but we have the whole complex to our selves so will be great.

    Only taking family with with, so about 12 people altogether.

    How about you?- & How come you picked Bali to get married there?

  • Cool that sounds amazing! I really cant wait now, we currently have 37 guests coming with us and people keep adding on. My partner has family in Australia and he wanted them to be there so thats why we choose there really but weve always wanted to go! Have u been before and have u stayed at the Melia Benoa hotel before? x

    We booked with Thomas Cook & are going for 17 days. We leave on the 21st April & get back on the 7th May

    Already got my dress back in April, along with my tiara & veil!! My 2 sisters are bridesmaids & are going to be wearing lemon colour dresses.

    Have you got your dresds yet?

    What colour/theme are you having?
  • Cool 17 days that will be awesome, we dont go until the 18th May so you will be able to send me some pics when you get back! x

    Im having 3 bridesmaids, was supposed to be 4 but one of my friends is pregnant so can not come with us now, one is my twin sister and the other 2 are close friends, i am having cerise colour (hot pink).

    I bought my dress back in April too, well i put a deposit down and they said it would take around 3 months for it to come in, cant wait to try it back on again.

    What you doing for favours? im struggling with ideas x
