Everyone, thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it and it helps me sort some things out.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions about resources for writing up the ceremony??

I actually used the forum to write my ceremony.  this thread is AMAZING!!  it took me awhile to get through it all but it was well worth it!

I am getting married next saturday 8.28 at Dreams Cancun and I have a question about the photographer.  We have the Ultimate package and didn't purchase an additional package.  This apparently includes 50 photos and an album.  How long is Juan Navarro there with you?  Do you get photos when you are getting ready or just of the ceremony?  Does he stay throughout the reception?  When I meet with Claudia when I arrive, can I request additional photos or get a CD of all the pictures added on?

 

That is the only thing that I am really worried about.  I was very relaxed with it up front and now I am thinking that maybe I should have asked a few more questions.  :)

 

Any advice you have would be very much appreciated!!

I think there are a couple of options for additional hours.  We are adding two hours as well, but we chose the ones that don't include as many pics as posted above.  Our's is $250 per additional hour.  Also many of the brides on here comment that once they receive their pics and album, they are offered the cd with all of the pics for $500...DONT pay this amount!!  EVERYONE i've talked to says to negotiate, and most brides get the cd for around $300

Thank you!  That is very good advice.  I also think once I tip him I will have a little more negotiating power.  I apprecaite all the advice.  This really helps me make a decision.

Thank you so much! I am just a little confused in how it works. I am sending my save the dates tomorrow and my wedding isn't till May of next year. If people start booking before i send out my invites i should still send them an invite right? Hope it's not to much to ask. Thanks in advance!!

Yes!  For sure send them an invite!  In fact, I was arguing the other way around, our wedding is in 3 months and I only wanted to send the invite to those who booked.  I figured if they're not going, why spend the $4 each invite is costing me....in the end I compromised.   Those that are going get the whole invitation suite, maps, reception details, etc.  Those who haven't mentioned anything about going at this point, only get a flat card announcing our invite.

 

What I learned though, is that irregardless of if they're going or not, people will be offended if they don't get an invite.

To who it may concern, I got 10 extra guests for not having cocktail, but I've heard of girls getting more guests for other things (not using mariachi).  I didn't get that option however (I got two hours of sound system though).

 

I am also on the fence about the invites.  I am not sure who to send them too.  I don't want to offend people, but I also don't want to push people who really do not want or cannot afford to go.

 

More weddings!  Congrats ladies.  I have to keep living vicariously through all of you lucky soon to be brides!

I know they get a full they package which includes a CD with all pictures taken, then you do not have to pay additional charges for CD, extra hours, or something else, you must look for a full package and then you won't worry about if the photographer will be while you are getting ready, at the end of the ceremony, etc!

 

Good luck!! Claudia is amazing!

 

Ivan!

I can't say enough great things about her!  She responds to emails the same day, no matter how many millions of emails I send.  Her prices are awesome.  I'm getting really tall flowers for each table for $50 each, the resort quoted me $150 each.... she gets good reviews on here too and can basically find and figure out anything your heart desires...she's awesome <3

 

Thank you so much ... I sent her an email.. cecilia quoted me 280 for the centerpieces i want.. thats insane!!

    • 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.
