Thanks for the info. I already have my dress but....you never know. I have always wanted to go to this so I might go just to see if I find something different.

You should try to go SB2Lennon if you can. Isn't this one of the great ways to get a designer dress for less? I've seen this on TV, I heard girls grab what they can and then trade with each other for what they want. Sounds crazy but fun.

I went last year. Took an early lunch at 11am and went by myself. I thought the madness would have subsided but it was still very weird. Though I'm sure MUCH less hectic than at 8am.


I did buy a truly beautiful Amsale gown for only $499. It retails for something like $2,700. I ended up buying another dress though, which reminds me I need to sell the Amsale...


Anyways, there are amazing deals to be had. Just try to have some idea of what you are looking for. and be clothed to try things on. I'd also recommend going with someone. It was pretty overwhelming by myself. I ended up going back with a co-worker.


If you're looking for a deal, it's the best thing going! :)

They should have a viewing area, cuz I too would love to watch but to be among the chaos on the floor may make me a little cranky!

Yeah I think I am going to try to go in, I guess brides sleep in the hall until the doors open and then go mad! They gather as many dresses as possible, hold them hostage and bater with other brides shouting out sizes and stuff... All this the day before I go on a cruise! yippee!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
