Dianna,

Can you send me the luxury package checklist? Can you forward it to my email - srn_luna@hotmail.com

Also, Does anyone know the price difference between hiring DJ Doremixx privately or through the resort? Ivan has confirmed that I can hire him privately, but I am wondering whether it would be worth it if I have to pay the $350 vendor fee, or whether I should just book directly with the resort.

Normally you get the huppa with the white fabric and chairs with white chair covers. If you prefer the arch with the white metal chairs I can request that.

not sure if it helps a ton, but at least we know there might be some options of sort...
WTF is a chuppa and/or huppa, lol??!?!?!?

OK I'm having TTD issues!

 

I really don't mind trashing my own wedding dress that isn't the issue, but I bought a more traditional dress thinking I was going to have an at home wedding and then switched to DW. So anyone else that is doing this, do you think a more "fru fru" dress will work in the water/sand, etc, or do you think I'd be better off getting a simple J Crew dress? In fact I'll post the pic of it I know fiance doesn't get on this site LOL... the dress in the pic is champagne mine of course is white but HELP please I'm so confused I need girl advise! :/

I think it will be okay.. It will be A LOT heavier once it's wet. I'm guessing it's already pretty heavy. If that's your dream dress then I say stick with it. You could always get a J. Crew simple dress as a reception dress.

I asked my WC is there a vendor fee if we book him and she told me he's the house DJ (so no). Also, Ivan told me himself there is no booking fee if you book through him. You get more bang for your buck if you book directly through him. That's what we are doing!

Julie said I have to pay the vendor fee for DJ Ivan since we booked directly through him so I am gonna fight that! I will email Ivan and ask him about it as well.

 

That dress looks really heavy so I think you should get a simple dress for the TTD!

Hey, any of your FI's going golfing or anything with the guys, and if they are, where are they golfing at?

 

Oh, has anyone been able to book at Veronicas or have a phone number for them?

you'll still wear this gorgeous dress for the wedding, right? it's beautiful and you should totally wear it!

for the TTD, i would just worry about the weight of it pulling it down, but otherwise, i'd say go for it! but it's whatever you'd be comfortable with.

Thanks everyone for the TTD suggestions.

 

And yes I still plan to wear the dress for the ceremony for sure. It's a really light taffeta material so it actually breathes really well and surprising the dress isn't that heavy. Like y'all said and what I am worried about, since it has a train, even if I bustle it for the TTD session, I just see it weighing me down. Ugh.

    • 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.
