Hi everyone. I hope everyone is doing well. I am freaking out a little bit. Our wedding is in a month and we haven't figured anything out. We are trying to figure out if we want to try to go with one of the old packages or if we want to go with one of the new one, but I have not been able to get anyone there to answer my questions. Does anyone have any information about what food is included in the Platinum or Silver wedding reception/cocktail hour. Also do you know the cost per person beyond the 25 included?

 

I am starting to think that Cecilia doesn't like me. She has never responded to one of my e-mails since she took over. Daniela has occasionally responded to me, but Cecilia has never. I understand waiting for a response, but never responding is starting to get to me. I called today, but no one was there and the voice mailbox is full.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since about two months ago, I've only dealt with Daniela. I would definitely call tomorrow and if you still can't get a response, see if your TA can help at all. When I was having trouble getting responses my TA got his contact to talk to the manager and ever since communication has been better. Not great, but better. I have the same questions as you but my wedding is 5 months away.

 

Try not to stress but definitely keep calling until you can get answers.

 

Share if you do get any answers!

If it makes you feel better, I haven't dealt with Daniela at all. Maybe they just split the brides between the two of them so that's why you only hear from Daniela. I would do like Angie said and keep trying to call. Are you using ext. 8046? I bet that voicemail fills up daily with questions about the new resort so I'd just keep trying.

 

I'm sure they are just swamped with May/June brides so I'll probably just leave the emails and contacting until a bit later but do let us know what you find out. Good Luck!

I've been working with Adriana for one of my brides and she's been very helpful and responsive. I did ask her about potential renovations and she indicated that there are no planned major renovations at this time, the biggest change will be the names of the restaurants, as the current names are sol melia brands, so they will be changing to AM brands.

 

Other than that it's a beautiful resort and I don't think there will be too much to change!

 

Hope that helps!

    • 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.
