I think there is a time cut off as not to disturb other guests. Ours will run until 12am I believe b/c the ceremony does not start until 6pm.
Hhhhmm wondering if I should ask her for a schedule or something.

When we were there she said we could go as late as 2:00AM.

 

By the way, they'll let you use their sound system for $400 for the night - just bring your iPod.

PHEW. I thought she told us that too! Not sure where this four hours comes from other than that's the minimum for the DJ!

 

Have you girls made any photog decisions?

Oohhh that makes me feel a lot better. Thanks for confirming.

Hhhhmmm do any of you have a timeline already or can help with mine. I dont know what to do then especially with only having the DJ for 4 hours. How should I lay everything out?

What do you mean by timeline? Something to give to your guests? I don't, but Alyssa did a nice one for her bridesmaids.

Yes a timeline for my guests but Im so confused now on what times to put. I will look up Alyssa's Ive seen a few others too that are really nice. I just dont want to make assumptions and put the wrong times. I should confirm with Perla closer to our date before printing.

 

Oh sorry Melissa I forgot to answer the photog question. We booked with Claudia Photo and have Citlalli. I have seen some great photos from her so Im really excited. Have you narrowed it down?

my computer crashed after my stress session (convenient!)...sorry to hear everyone else freaks out too, but glad its not just me! and becks, yes, i expect perla and elisa to respond exactly 1.3 seconds after i hit send...but for some reason i don't think i'm on the top of their priority list :)

 

after catching up on the last three pages of posts, i'm totally confused. i didn't realize the ceremony in the package was not legal (add another $1K to our budget) and i didn't realize the sound system was extra (+ $400 more)! i need to send another email! poor FI...he's going to have to work harder smile120.gif (jk)

 

we are also booking claudia photo...i didn't realize she had other photogs with her so we booked claudia herself. i've heard good things though so hopefully it all works out!

 

oh, yeah, and the timeline thing...please share when you figure that out because i can't bear to start thinking about it yet!

Hi Neen welcome back.
Please remember anything you want outside of your package is extra I learned this a few times the hard way. Read the fine printsmile27.gif
Oh and if you decide to have the legal ceremony tell Perla as soon as you decide b/c she has to book with what I can only explain as the only judge who performs legal ceremonies in RM. We asked for a 3:30 to 4:00pm ceremony time and got 6pm. Not my first choice at all but I learned to let it go and look on the brightside of things.
Claudia will be great. I see most girls on the forum book Claudia or Citlalli. Im sure you can find pics if you do a search.

Here's the timeline Elisa gave me:

 

Ceremony 5-5:30pm

 

Cocktail 5:30-6:30pm

 

Dinner 6:30-9:30pm

 

Is that what you meant?

 

Michele can you direct me to the post with the good time line, I'm about to start on mine.

Welcome back Neen.

I received a quote last week from Victor (The DJ) for $700 for his equipment - where did you get the $400 price from?

 

Citlalli is my photographer too! She's really good!

 

Michele are you going to use her for the full 8 hours?

Did you start doing OOT bags?

 

Mellissa - How did you attach the amenities brochure in your reply?

    • 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.
