I do have a little story to tell - I had an awful day Friday when I took my sister to see my dress, the lady @ the shop was sooo rude just because I didn't purchase my shoes from her, she baisically told me not to email her has she dosn't have time and really made me feel like I was putting on her !! I did send her an email letting her know how I felt about the visit but no reply yet, I feel she has me over a barrell now as shes got 50% deposit, I even called the designer direct (PRONOVIAS) and told them what awful service I had but they said there was nothing they could do because she is indipendant, never mind, hopfully my next visit will be better !
Hey Jodey! Sorry to hear how this woman treated you! A friend of mine had the same thing happen locally and I so don't want to go to that shop!! Just tell her you are going barefoot for the ceremony!! LOL punk.gif

Tell her you aren't paying a penny until you have a workable contract, otherwise you are stuffed from a legal standpoint.

You need the protection as much as she does. Or do a sneaky which is what I am thinking of doing which is downgrade the package to basic and pay half that lol no reason they should have that much cash off you upfront.

You know what... I'm having the opposit effect, I'm trying to pay my deposit and they don't seem to be that bothered, probably because its not till end of next year huh.gif So I'm gonna leave it, they'll contact me when they want some money I'm sure,

I don't know why she wants it NOW, its over 365+ days till my wedding?

I think I emailed her back when I was securing my date to ask when I would need to make a deposit and I didnt really think she would need it so soon?

I emailed her last Friday about getting a contract and haven't heard anything yet. So if she wants the deposit she needs to send me the contract first. bunny_4.gif

Hey Jodey!

I was wondering about you, how you were doing?

That is horrible!! How can someone treat their clients like that!!?

I think when your dress comes in you should take it somewhere else to be altered and once you have the dress you should tell her how you're going to let everyone on the wedding forums you belong to know about her shop and how horrible she is and not to go there.

C'mon, just because you didn't buy your shoes therehuh.gif How much are shoes, really? Thats just not something worth being upset over! She needs to get over it!

So, I know I read it somewhere but I can't find it now. Does anyone know how much it is to have hair and makeup done for BM?

I haven't seen you on here in a while. That really sucks about your dress. I had something similar happen to me the first time I was married. They could have gotten my service again this go round if they would have treated me better! idiots!!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
