I thought you could choose each and every option and I wanted to do a pricing comparison. Well you still have to choose one of the packages. Than you just get to pick diffrent upgrades which I already knew about.

The Ultimate comes with bride hair, make up, pedi and mani but I am not going to be using any of these. I am not going to be using the photography either. I wish there was a way to do an exchange for diffrent services instead of those

oh well
I was disappointed to find out that we had to pick a package regardless...booo...i don't think i would need makeup and bridal hairstyling either! I def don't need a photographer...I already have a photographer flying in. More pics, right?

Do let us know if there is a MAC...that would be great for my bridesmaids. The resort is charging $60 just for makeup...i think that's just crazy. Hopefully MAC won't charge too much!

Ladies, here is what Kimberly sent me for their centerpiece that comes with the package...she said rose petals are an extra cost.

Any ideas how we can spruce them up? Bring hurricane vases?

TA Jennifer provided it to me when working with the WC to secure the date with the WC at The Royal. Hopefully, you will be able to open it soon. Just keep posting away!

Hello -
You will need 150 posts to open attachments. You'll be amazed at how quickly that will happen. If you have further questions, check out the forum rules regarding opening attachments.

Good luck,

Someone asked how much MAC charges for makeup, its $50 you purchase whatever make up you want for $50 and they do your makeup, its not a bad deal at all, just watch the artist's. MAC likes to go really heavy on makeup. Onto the food, I spoke with Kimberly again and I asked how much they would charge to add on extra entrees but she didnt respond to that, however what she did say was "everyone has the same entree, unless I would like to offer the choices in my invites and keep track of which guest is having which entree and make place cards with the entree choice on the card for each guest" So it looks like thats what im going to have to do, especially the fact that I am Jewish and not the majority but theyre are a select few from my family that do only eat kosher, therefor putting a steak infront of thier face, would not go over so well. Also just to inform some of you ladies that are worried about getting your hair and makeup done through the hotel, during our stay last year I had my hair "blown out" 3 times and makeup done once, and it looked great! theyre prices I dont remember off hand but it was reasonable.

Yeah, everything is pretty much done, except for the things that we can only do there.

This is what I have planned:

Friday-Catamaran for all guests (as a 'thank you' for coming)

Saturday-Ceremony-5:00-Gazebo-Reception-beach-DJ Doremixx & Del Sol photographers

Sunday-Find a bar that is playing the Saints game :)

We have about 25 guests coming, so it will be a small, but very lively bunch!

 

I am soooooo ready!

So exciting!!!

Your ceremony is at 5:00 at the Gazebo? I saw on that a la carte link that someone posted that you could only have the ceremony there at 12 or 1 or something. i awnted to have mine around 4:00. So this is good news! I was going to call my wedding planner today to get them to ask about that!

Have a great time!

    • 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.
