Ok so yesterday my venue had a wedding fair on so I popped up to have a nosy.
Managed to get them to block book me twenty rooms so that I can tell day guests to book, saves me having to do a save the date. I'm just going to send individual facebook messages to them.
On the booking front, we have our wedding car
It's an absolute steal at £195, with flowers in the car, ribbon of our colour scheme, they will take bridesmaids to the church then come back for me and dad. We get Champagne too and it's run by a couple who bought the cars and did them up so i'm helping a local business who don't charge an absolute fortune!!
It's a Rover 100 we are using.
I'm also booking the DJ today. It's a company called Fun Leisure and they charge £250 which is really good, they are more than a DJ. I know the owner of the company and he is brilliant so just need to pay £50 deposit for that
It's all very exciting, its 13 months today until the wedding.
I want to go abroad for some sunshine so whilst it's still warm we are going to go for three nights 22nd September-25th September.
We were looking at Lloret De Mar but i've been told the nightlife has died a death and isn't as good as it used to be.
We then looked at Salou but it's too expensive to fly into Reus Airport and to transfer from Barcelona will take 2 1/2 hours.
So we then tried Benidorm - £350 each all inclusive so quite steep.
So now i'm on Palma Nova which is £230 each for three nights brilliant flight times and is 5 minutes in a taxi to Maga if we want crazy nightlife.
Hopefully there won't be loads of crazy students out there shagging in the streets because we will be just about end of season.
The DJ i was going to book had put the price up by £100!!
So i've found one who is really good, lots of good reviews and Andrews brother knows him for £260 and he's also given me a photobooth for three hours for £265, so my other photobooth the lady didn't want a deposit so i've cancelled that one. We get an attendant and lots of props and we get a book with all the pictures in and a USB and the guests get a photo each too.
I'm getting really excited, i almost feel like i'm too organised and feel like i've missed things. I'm gonna do another post in a sec with everything i've booked and what i've got left to get xxx
