Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Ok, I am leaving in less then 2 weeks and just read that Perla has left Paradisus! AHHH!!! Is Cecilia answering emails at the same address, or is there a different one for her? I can't believe I will be married in just over 2 weeks...crazy!

SMB - that's so exciting! Can't wait to hear all about it.

 

As far as bags go, I believe it's $4 a bag to be put in the rooms. I'm planning on just having them set up on a table at the welcome/rehearsal dinner and give them out then.

I'm sending her an email today ... I'll keep you all posted!

 

Are any of you guys thinking about putting together some kind of group excursion? I want to but am afraid of the cost. Do we pay for that?

 

I stayed at the Paradisus Palma Real in PC and they offered snorkeling trips included ... I wonder if they'll do the same.

If you're just doing symbolic, you don't need anything... except your credit card.

We went this route (legally married at town hall before we left), and I don't think they even asked for our passports.

I sent an email and marked it urgent on Tuesday and haven't heard back (mind you I had a lot of questions). I even put in the subject that my wedding was in 2 weeks. I'm annoyed that no one proactively contacted me to advise that Perla left (and Perla could have told me since she just emailed me on the 26th of Dec. Oh well!

 

Just found out yesterday that 2 of my guests are having to cancel. He is having heart problems and has been told he can't drive or fly for 6 months. Very upset, but they are seeing if they can transfer the tickets to their daughter and her boyfriend. I feel bad because I know they were looking forward to coming and I really wanted them there. I guess that's life though.

 

My dad picked our song last night...well, he picked three and left me to pick. It will be Louie Armstrong - What a wonderful world. He had some other father daughter songs but it just doesn't fit with our relationship. My MIL picked a horrible song to dance with the FH, so he needs to break it to her gently and help choose a different one.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
