Hey Toya,
One thing I did to help with the suitcase situation is I asked one of my friends who has 2 little kids if she could pack them in the same suitcase and I used the extra for my centrepieces. Still sucks you have to bring them down, but at least you won't have to pay more to do it.... just a thought.

They wouldn't let me exchange the bouquet/bout either but I did end up using it as my toss bouquet...

Hey Tam - Did you use the resorts photographer? Did anyone? I'd like to see what kind of pictures he takes.

 

Are any of you doing a boudoir shoot? How do you even go about booking something like that? How much does it run?

 

Any info would be super helpful.

 

I swear, this site is like my newest guilty pleasure. Just can't get enough. Thank you all!

Between you, me, Eliana I feel right at home with my NJ brides. wink.gif

Eliana, I love the front of the first dress and the back of the second one. But they are both beautiful. I feel in love with a dress on this website but had no store near me sad.gif
What bad experience did you have at David's Bridal? I bought my dress there and had a great experience.

Ebredhawk - my well wishes are with you for tomorrow! Can't wait to see your centerpieces, whenever you get to them. lol
Hi Jenise!!

YES!! I'm so happy to hear that we've got so many NJ brides on here. I feel like we should all meet up for a cocktail :-)

I'm getting married May 24, 2010...so it's coming up soon!

My David's Bridal (DB) experience felt like shoe shopping to me. I'm 5'10" bare foot and wear 4" heels all day, so I'm pretty noticeable, but when I go shoe shopping, it's like I'm invisible. At the DB I went to (granted, it was on a Holiday-- this past Monday), they assigned me to a consultant who took about 15 minutes to get to the front. She asked me what I wanted (didn't know since this was my 1st time shopping), and then said "OK! I'll bring you some dresses". That's about all she did. She put me in a room and said when I came out, she'd zip me up. Well, I came out and she was no where to be found. I had to have someone else do it. Then I waited and waited. So I took that dress off, and put the next one on. Still not around...This continued until I got to the last of the 5 dresses she pulled. She asked what I thought and I said "I thought you were going to help...". I guess I just expected some more of her "experience" in picking things that worked for me and my body type. She was getting yelled at by managers (I think) about putting dresses away, so maybe she was new, but I just wanted to leave. The other brides who were there trying on dresses were more helpful than my consultant was. Oh well...I tried. I might go back, but to a different store. I have a couple more appointments this weekend all around NJ, so I'll see what I find. Anyone been to Jefre Bridal? They don't have the dress I'm dying to try on, but I'll see if anything else catches my eye in the mean time :-)

Would any of you know the answer to this question: If you stay the 7 days in the Honeymoon Suite to get the free wedding package, if you upgrade to one of the other packages, do they deduct the free wedding package price from the larger one?

Hi Cristin,

I had that same question about the free wedding package and if they deduct anything if you upgrade to a different package... Deyanira's response is below:

"Also, we might want to upgrade to the ultimate wedding package. Is there a discount off that since we have so many rooms booked? I am sorry, the price of the wedding packages are not negotiable, interchangeable or transferable."

Hope this helps!

Thanks Tam, thats a great idea, my sister has 2 young kids who won't need a whole suitcase to them selves. that will work, although I still wish I didn't have to carry them down with me lol....

Hey Jenise, I will be doing a BD shoot, I'm not sure of the actually cost because I have 2 really close friends who are photographers who will be doing mine as a wedding gift. I will have to pay to get the book assembled thou and I haven't priced that just yet.
