Well, that definitely sucks! I hope they are good with makeup or I'll re-do it myself! :)

OMG you just made my day!! I am p lanning to do the same thing, let me know if you end up doing it :)

Hey Tutti, in may the sunsets around 7 -8. Hope this helps it sounds like your thinking of a creally cool idea.

Hi Lady Di - I know it really sucks they do not refund anything. The make up and hair are included in my package to. I thought about doing a trial but you pay for it. So I figured I may as well do it my own way rather than take the risk.

I have seen that some of girls who had their hair/makeup done were happy with the results so maybe that will be the case for us! I am pretty good with my makeup so I will be okay in that dept but not sure about my hair. I could just keep it simple.

BTW, I love M.A.C. products. Haha.

You are right it is a pretty mixed bag on happy and not happy. I think it depends how your hair hold up in the humidity :) I am going on to Playa this November and I am going to try some diffrent things with my hair to see how it holds up :)


Ya loooveeeee M.A.C to

I know... I think another option for me is to have a trial done at home with a MAC store and then purchase the necessary items. Since my make-up is included in my package too - I might just have them use my own new MAC makeup instead of using theirs.... just a thought... I have been told too that if you bring really good pictures of what you want - hair and make-up that they are pretty good and following the pictures... so, that is another way to prepare for it..... Too many details to remember!

That would be amazing! What are you doing for center pieces? I am having a hard time deciding, especially beacuse the day is so far away now. I think that we are aiming for 40-50 guests, but that can change so much with destination weddings. Our colours are in the reds. What about you?

That is a great idea! I could purchase foundation for the girls and have them to do their makeup but i don't know how well some of them can do their makeup. I' m not sure if I will have time to help all of them. I do have a friend who is a makeup artist but she told me I was cheap when i offered to pay her $50 per person when the resort is charging $60 per person lol...i don't know if she will come to the wedding, anyway!

To all Brides -

 

What Colors is everyone using as their wedding colors?

 

I am thinking of having my bridesmaids dresses in turquoise but not sure if thats too matchy matchy with the ocean. Also can't decide what color would compliment turquoise as far as their bouquets and other decorations at the reception ...would love to hear what colors other brides are doing.

 

or if anyone has suggestons what i could match with turquoise, it would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Adriana

    • 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.
