I have never been Type A, until I started planning a wedding! And, now I feel a little stressed that I haven't contacted Zulma or any other Royal coordinators. Does anyone suggest a go-to person at the Royal? Thanks so much!
Welcome!!! How did you book your wedding if not through a WC? I think from what I've learned about them, they're all way over-worked and I'm not sure that one is necessarily a better choice than another. IMHO. I suggest you type in OOT bags into the search function. I've been gathering a list of ideas, but there are lots of threads on the topic. Also, check out the planning threads, most of the time brides have shown pictures of what they included. Oh, and there's a whole thread on cakes, too. Show me the cake is what it's called, I think. Congratulations and welcome! And I'm so glad you've found this thread as helpful as I have! (It takes a lot of patience to get to here from page 1!!!) Good luck with all your planning!!!

Thanks so much for the welcome. We have booked everything through Marge at DestinationWeddings.com. She has been the middle person for everything. She told me that one the Royal's WC would contact me around January. That seems a little wild to me. From reading this thread, it sounds like most of you contacted on of the WCs far before your weddings. I think that's what I'll do.

Hey Gals! We're leaving pretty soon and I don't have time to re-read all of the postings. So I was hoping someone could tell me if they've heard or used a projector to do a slideshow of pictures (from childhood to being together). It's just something I put together this weekend, and then I realized I don't even know if I can use it!!

Thank you!!

Hey Athena,

 

I dont know if the Royal provides a projector but if you are having a dj then they should be able to provide it for you. We have booked Manni to be our dj and that is one of the options that he offers for $300. Let me know if you find anything else out. :)

Thank you!! We have booked a DJ, so we'll check with them. Never thought of that.

Also, has anyone heard how much it is for day passes to get into the Royal. Some friends of ours are wanting to come last minute, but both the Royal and Gran Porto are completely sold out!! We've found them a nice, cheap hotel near by (The Real downtown) but not sure how much it will cost them to come into the hotel (on days other than the wedding day).

Oh and if anyone has questions for the WCs that you've been having problems getting answers for let me know. I'll jot them down and ask her on Monday.

Who is everyone using for wedding day videography? I know Royal's preferred vendor is Funever Photos but I can't seem to find any samples of their work. They do have very reasonable pricing though for wedding day coverage... any other suggestions?

I'm really flip flopping right now on videography. Currently, we have playaweddings booked...but for photography ONLY. I've seen a lot of wedding videos...and I think with still shots, you can do some really beautiful slideshows to music...but...its not quite the same as LIVE video footage.

Do you have the prices for the Funever? I might get them to do just the ceremony or something...

    • 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.
