Thanks soo much! I am starting to really worry about the quality of the dj and if they really fullfill the "mc" part of the job (we want our bridal party and us to be anounced, along with the first dance/parent dances)
There you are! ~waves~ Haven't seen you for a while :)
I am sad that I will just miss your wedding, we are getting there on the 31st.

hey guys... im almost positive I want my wedding here.. everyone is soooo helpful.. and the pictures and attachments you guys are posting are simply wonderful!

 

few questions:

 

1. everyone keeps writing how breezy it is at the gazebo.. its making me really nervous.. is it unbarable? bc its soo beautiful up there?

 

2. im thinking of having the ceremony at sunset so its darker and lit up with candles, with fireworks after the ceremony is done... everyone seems to have their ceremony during the day when its bright out.. is having it in the evening a bad idea?

 

3. The gazebo is beautiful, but I would want to have it decorated with tons of flowers... do they actually do this? because havent seen any photos of it that way.

 

4. I think such an important part of the wedding is entertainment.. I want everyone to have a lot of fun... I want a good MC who can make the reception flow well... read some not so greart reviews on the DJ.. are there other band/DJs that can do it.. any good suggestions?

 

Thanks guys! and happy planning

my answers are below in red
few questions:

1. everyone keeps writing how breezy it is at the gazebo.. its making me really nervous.. is it unbarable? bc its soo beautiful up there?

It is very windy, but not unbearable, its actually kind of nice to have the breeze because its really hot. The thing with the wind is that if you intend to wear a veil, it's probably going to fly off, but its not unbearable where you or your guests would be uncomfortable, I hope that makes sense

2. im thinking of having the ceremony at sunset so its darker and lit up with candles, with fireworks after the ceremony is done... everyone seems to have their ceremony during the day when its bright out.. is having it in the evening a bad idea?

we had our ceremony at 4, by the time we got back from our pictures the sun was setting and it was dark during our reception. You'll need to have something deep to put candles in because I think you will have a hard time with them staying lit

3. The gazebo is beautiful, but I would want to have it decorated with tons of flowers... do they actually do this? because havent seen any photos of it that way. I'm sure you could have it decorated with flowers, you would have to ask claudia or daniella to get you a quote on the cost.

4. I think such an important part of the wedding is entertainment.. I want everyone to have a lot of fun... I want a good MC who can make the reception flow well... read some not so greart reviews on the DJ.. are there other band/DJs that can do it.. any good suggestions?
I can't help on this part, we just used the mariachi for cocktail hour and then used our IPOD & docking station for music
Thanks guys! and happy planning
Good Luck! Let me know if you have any other questions!

I think a candlelight ceremony would be gorgeous, but I'm not sure how your pictures would turn out. I have seen someone's pics of the gazebo with huge arrangements of white lillies and roses on each of the posts and it was really pretty.
thanks! im starting to rethink the evening ceremony.. bc of the whole picture problem... thanks!! i am going to find out how much it will cost to deorate the gazebo...

    • 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.
