Guess Dreams will have to have two photogs and videogs for June 13. Gotta tell ya, I'm a little peeved with her lack of foresight on this one, and I, for one am not paying extra for it!
I am all about doing whatever will stress me out the least!!! LOL!! I am not opposed to moving the time up slightly. Hey its all good as long as my DJ, photographer and videographer are all booked properly. Hey if it does get scewed up, at least I have someone who will team up with me to go all "bridezilla" on them!!!! mad2.gif

I have Jill (TA) working on it too. I wil let you know onceI hear something...

I dont know about Dreams but i went to a wedding in Punta Cana DR last year & well last minute everyone was doing so much running around there was no one to fill in as witness's. To make a long story short they grabbed someone in their bathing suits that was a guest at the hotel to do it. It wasnt a big deal I mean a little weird but no biggie. Not sure if that helps since its a totally different country but thought I'd throw that in there..lol

What if I donâ€t have a witness?

 

If you do not have witnesses available, these will be provided by the resort at no additional cost.

 

 

This is what I got right off the Dreams Resort website under frequently asked questions - not sure if it is accurate . . . .

I think you should contact her asap.

I emailed her, and she said she'll not be available for my date (Aug. 1) because she will be on vacation.

Really?
I e-mailed her on Tuesday night and So far I haven't heard anything back :-( I check times a day!! I know that It's only 5 months away, so there is a chance she may not even have my date available, but I really keep hoping she does :-)
Thanks for the Heads up!!!

    • 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.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
