As far as I know you should still get the perks of having your wedding there. We met some people who had their paper fall through and were getting married the day after me. She had the same gold wrist band and said she got all the perks still.

Cool! Can't wait to hear about it!! Do your guests know that you'll be doing the legal stuff at home?

Did you do the legal? Sorry if you already answered... I should go back and look first! What's with the gold wrist band... is that something just for those getting married??

Nope, only a couple do in our wedding party and that's it. We're going to play dumb and tell people (if they ask) that we didn't realize until the last minute that it wasn't a legal ceremony so that we got it done at home just before we left! hehehehe cheesy.gif

well i finally just narrowed down my ceremony music choices. it took me forever...but i think i got songs that aren't going to make me bawl my eyes out *knock on wood* and that my guests will like too.

 

that list of things to do...is slowly getting smaller ... 12 days til we leave! can't wait!

just waiting to hear on 5 more people if they are actually booking. we have way more people coming than we ever expected...should be a blast!

 

i have to say karla has been great to work with. answers all my questions within 24hrs.

Hey ladies... this thread is getting SOOOO long, do you think we should provide some FAQs for GBP at the beginning? Maybe like the current packages, spa and flower info, WC contact, stuff like that? I'd be happy to help pull some of it together, but I'm not sure how we get the mods to update the first page.

I think that's a great idea... when I joined a hundred or so pages ago it took me forever to read through everything... I think at FAQs section would really help the newbies get info fast. How to go about that??

I would be more than happy to help condense things too. I can talk with the mods.

 

As for my wedding, i did it legally down there. But it was our first wedding so it was super easy. The couple we talked to had a divorce mixed in there, so that's why they married at home. With the apostile and everything needed they just said it was easier that way... plus then they didn't have to give blood.

 

As for the gold wrist bands, I guess they were to tell people we were royalty? LOL!! No, from what I could gather, those with gold wrist bands were kind of VIPS. I saw that wedding couples and handicapped individuals had them (my uncle's girlfriend had brain cancer and was in a wheel chair for my wedding, so she had a gold one as well).

No worries! You get the same treatment and ammenities regardless of your ceremony type. It's not too late to change your choice of ceremony to Symbolic...just simply tell Jazmin what you want. Try not to stress...I know, easier said than done. Things will work out great and you will wonder why you stressed! Hang in there!

Alright ladies, I'm compiling the main resource for this thread. I've worked my way through page 25... and I'll continue until done.

However, for the sake of my brain, could anyone send me the most recent information they have on the types of ceremonies, the cost for the spas, and the photographer.

 

And if you have anything else such as the bouquet pictures, etc that you think other brides would find helpful, feel free to send that to me too!!!

    • 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.
