I think it is really up to you.

I am planning to do a sand ceremony as well, and will get 2 different color.

FYI, Gaby got back to me and told me it was fine that I was bringing my own photographer. She said she can give me the sound system for the ceremony in exchange for using their photographer. I sent her an email back requesting they give me the sound system as well as a day pass for my photographer. I guess that is kind of an even trade. But included in the email she sent me, she asked me to send her the date of my wedding again because she forgot it. She said she has so many weddings that she just cant keep track. OMG...if they gave my date to someone else Im gonna throw a shit fit!!! I talked to her on the phone a few weeks ago and she said she wrote it down in her calander so no one else can take my time slot. Hmm...now Im starting to get worried.

WTFhuh.gif? why will gaby offer you the sound system for the ceremony (which is what i asked for) but claudia will only offer me the gazebo drapery? this is what i got in reply:

Unfortunately I can't give a total credit for the photography because the
Dreams ultimate is a package. The options are: Gazebo drapery or Video studio on the beach after ceremony.

For whatever it is worth I got the same question from Gaby a few weeks ago and our wedding is in less then 2 weeks now. I think they are just totally overwhelmed. I wouldnt be too worried about it. Try to remember they are dealing with a ton of emails/phone calls etc. I know it is not ideal for us but I think in the long run it will be worth it.

ladies I know you are all so stressed. i was the same way before I left. I actually sent Claudia a really nasty email right before I left. But when I arrived, she had everything taken care of. Truth be told once I got there and saw the place I changed a bunch of things. I orignally wanted to get married on the beach, I switched to the gazebo, I changed the menue, and the brides maids flowers. I changed the decorations for the gazebo. I know its hard to believe, but it will all be ok, and if something goes wrong, just take a shot of tequila and I garuntee it will all be better!!

WTF is a video studio on the beach?

I'm hoping all my guests drop out and I can drop the package lol i'll then get the free one as at least 5 (including me) have booked and then only pay for a small number and the deposit will pay for everything lol

I'm going into battle with Claudia in Feb when I have numbers - everyone has been told after 1st Feb if they aren't booked they aren't getting catered for and if they know me they will know i mean it lmao

I dont think you have to 2 different colors but I think its nice because it shows you each as individuals (the different colors) then as it mixes and blends together to me shows the uniting as a partnership. JMHO. See ya soon at Dreams!!

just an idea, whenever i send them any kind of email, i always sign it with both of our full names, and "dreams cancun wedding, may 28, 2009." i think it helps them to sort out all the emails and know exactly with whom they are dealing.

For anyone who got married at Dreams but had their legal ceremony before they left...could you tell that what they call their symbolic ceremony is different? I mean I wrote out our ceremony before we ended up having to get married here before hand so now our ceremony there is just symbolic. Thing is, most of our guests dont know we are already legally married. I still want to do the ceremony we wrote. I want the ceremony in Mexico to have every element of being the legal one minus the blood tests and all. Can anyone lend some insight? Thanks so much!

    • 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.
