Can't wait for the beach and that first pina colada!

 

Thanks for all of the support ladies!  I will let everyone know how it all turns out.

I was wondering as well.  My WC is great and I would like to tip her but I was not sure how, as I am sure I will not actually meet her because she is off-site somewhere in Mexico.  Any thoughts?

 

I do not think I am going to tip my photographer because he is an independent photographer flying in & I am paying for airfare & hotel & he gets the total fee, it's not like he works for someone else and has to pay them some part of the fee.

LADIES!!! Important announcement,  in case you are aware, your photographer must have a permit in order to take captures on government property, like a beach. Police are cracking down on vendors on government property. If your photographer does not have a permit, he will be fined!! The photographer just needs to apply to the local government building. Not sure how much it costs. 

 

If your photographer is Ivan Luckie then you're completely covered!! He was the one that told me on another forum.

Yep...see my earlier post.  He was taking my engagement photos when him and his wife got stopped!  It was SO wacky!!!  I think it would royally SUCK to have that happen on your wedding day and suddenly have to stop taking beach photos while some cops stand around fining your photographer...

Hi, I was told $350 per company.

    • 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.
