sorry, i don't have the answer to your question, but i DO agree with you that some of the things they charge us for are silly, and the amounts are often just ridiculous! seems like they try really hard to keep us all within their pre-fixe options.

I think jesmcan was originally going to do the Ult Luxury Package, so it's possible they may have let her substitute since it was already on one of the filet options. (just my guess)

but yeah, that price is ridic

Yes originally when I was doing our recption with the Ultimate package they told us that we could just add a few jumbo shirimp to the plate with out an extra charge. That price they gave you is ridicoulis!! I would call them and say you just want to add a few shrimp not a platter.

Thank you! I am being passed off to the Mexico coordinators now...so hopefully they will give me a different answer. I told Aja I only wanted 2 shrimp on each plate, she said that was still $15. I think they have lost their mind. I'm hoping it is mis-communication between Michigan and Mexico...I guess time will tell! :)

 

She also told me it was $20 per person to upgrade to warm appetizers instead of the cold ones. I pushed back on that 3 times telling her how ridiculous that was and she finally said she was looking at the wrong line and it was really only $5 per person to upgrade. I still think $5 is more than it should be....but at least it's reasonable!

Does anyone know how far it is from the Royal to La Cueva del Chango? I can see on the map that it only looks like a couple blocks away, but how big are the blocks!? :) My grandparents are coming and I was just curious if it truly is within walking distance, or if we will need to get taxis or a shuttle or something. Does anyone know if the resort has a shuttle? We are hoping to do a dinner at La Cueva del Chango the night before the wedding by we don't want to do it unless we can make sure everyone has transportation if it is too far to walk.

    • 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.
