Thanks I really appreciate it. I've emailed them being as polite as I can but asking why the change since I originally looked at it. I'd be happy with what they have told you, i'm not really having a reception so not bothered in the slightest about that. when I started to arrange this in Feb it was exactly the same as yours but they delayed the contract until the end of march and I think thats when the packages changed. FI thinks I should leave it until we get there but I think thats no good this needs to be sorted now.

I'll let you know what happens.

Right!! I finally got a definitive response from Claudia and here it is lol Think it clears up a few questions that people were having, it still seems nuts to me that we only get 40 mins when technically we've paid for 1 - 2 hours lol but i'm negotiating lol

 

"Claudia

 

I really need the answers to these questions, I love your hotel and I do want my wedding there, but as I mentioned before the photograph position is worrying me to the point where I am re-considering my venue.

 

1. On the package on the Dreams website, when I originally asked for information in January, it was 50 photographs in the Ultimate Wedding Package and that was still the position when I sent you the Q&A in February and even today it still says 50 photographs. It does not say ceremony only on there anywhere. Why has that now changed to ceremony only? Other people that have booked at the same time and the same package have been advised that it is for pictures after the ceremony and some on the beach and around the hotel. Why is mine different when we are paying the same price?

 

the photographer service is just for @ 40 minutes.

 

2. I understand the reception is not covered and that is fine I have no problem with that.

 

Ok.

 

3. We are not bothered about a video can we swap the video for more photographs?

 

yes he can stay longer to do more photos all over the areas

 

 

4. I note you now do not allow outside vendors, which photographs do you allo?

 

Juan Navarro & Claudia Rodriguez

 

 

5. On the contract it says 50% must be paid by 15th May 2008. Can we change this date as it may be we will not have our flights available for booking at this time?

 

Sure I can extend it to June 15th,08.

 

 

6. Is it 50% of the package price, ie $1325?

 

yes

 

 

No idea how much longer we have the photographer for tho and as you see she didn't really answer the question lmfao

Susan, did you get details on how long/how much coverage you will get with your "new" video package? The one that you are getting because you are not getting the pictures I mean.

Also, does anyone know who Dreams uses for videography?

THANKS!!
No, I did not get any detail on how much longer coverage I am getting. She is very vague sometimes.

I believe Miguel Canterell is the videographer. I went to his site, and he does very good work.

    • 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.
