I know, right?! I can't believe it. This is the problem with not having a signed contract...they can just up the prices, and even though you have entered into discussions about how the day will be...there is nothing you can do.

I'm just really frustrated...

It is DEFINITELY not going over well with me. Have you seen the photography the hotel guy offers? It's not the quality we here at BDW have come to expect!! AND...they charge a freakin fortune for that too...I want the professional I picked...

You think, though, that they should honor the prices they first told you - especially if you've already booked your date.
Let us know when you hear back from Michaela... crossing my fingers for you to hear something positive... big hug your way!

I can't believe that! I am planning on having an associate from Del Sol Photography... and if they won't let us have outside photographers then we'll have to find a new location... that's ridiculous!

I have just heard from Micaela. They are going to honor the package price that was posted when we booked our date. As for the photographer, so far, she apologized, but, their policies have changed, and there are no longer outside vendors allowed. She seems like such a sweet lady, so I'm hoping that she will think of something!

I'm happy about the price...

Hi Girls,

Yay, I'm so happy for you that they're honoring the rate they initially had when you booked! Honestly, Zulma and Michaela are the sweetest, and I couldn't have seen them doing otherwise (unless coming from above)... Shay, hopefully Michaela will be able to do something about the outside photographer...

Kriswim, we didn't do group rates for rooms - we made it easy for ourselves and everyone just did their own bookings (plus in Canada and Germany where our group was coming from we do package deals with air and hotel included together and not separately as in the States).

I emailed with the reservation people and they give discounts for groups of 10 or more. The discount was not substantial by any means; I think we got a better group discount through the travel agent. Mine was for the Gran Porto though. If you want to book through the hotel directly, just call their reservations line to find out. Or PM me if you want the email of the reservations guy that I spoke to there.

That really sucks about the no outside vendor rule! Is it just for photographers or ALL vendors? Do you know how the hotel photographer is? Are you able to see a portfolio or anything? I wonder if they have just one photographer or a bunch that they choose from.

It's very professional of them to honour the previous prices! I'm rather upset about their new outside vendor policy...for some reason the work of mos tresort photographers seems to be a bit sub-par for wedding photography!

 

I'm sure things will sort themselves out :)

    • 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.
