I dont know if they got my inquiry or if my request is lost somewhere out on the web :)

Also, how do I earn points so that I can open up attachments. I have seen some pretty cool ideas for the OOT bags and lots of info on the dreams packages but I can not open any attachments.

Hi Diana, You need to post as much as possible baisically to earn your points for opening attachments, I am also a 2009 bride, (Nov 2009) I am in contact with Daniella @ Dreams, her email is - weddings1@dreamscancun.com.mx I know from previous brides that if your wedding is still a way off they tend to take their time getting back to you, If you stress in your email that you want to make sure you get a specific date, i'm sure she will get back to you sooner, good luck ! x

Has anyone used the photographer that's part of the package? I have a friend that's pretty good at photography, so I was thinking of having her take pics as well and just use the one included in the package.

 

Also, still undecided on the reception location.

 

Where did you get the starfish for the bouquets?

Hi Kristi, this is something I've been thinking about recently, we are having the ultimate package which does include a photographer but I'm thinking of having an outside photographer as we would like something a little more in depth but it depends on what the costs of all the extras are going to add up to. The amount of guests are adding up too, more and more people are booking which is great but after the 20 people in the package you have to pay a price pp extra for bothe the meal and the cocktail hr, (I think we've got about 30 or so @ the mo) I've got some info on Claudia R who Paul had and a few other brides and another photographer Micheal Maurus, both look stunning. I think we are having the cocktail hr on the garden area and the sit down meal on the terrace or the Tower Lobby reception as there is somwhere to dance therefore not needing to pay extra for the dance floor, What are you thinking of doing ??

We use Citlalli of Claudia R as well as her videographer and were very pleased. She took over 500 pictures (we hired her for 8hrs) and sent us an album of the best shots and then a CD with all the pictures she had taken for us to make our own copies. I'd highly recommend her. As far as the videographer goes, I thought this was an unnecessary cost but my husband insisted. It was one of the best splurges we did. We've watched it so many times i can't count. They did an amazing job

Wow! That's great that you already have 30 people! Your right it does add up though. From what I've seen so far..I might have cocktails and dancing outside on the terrace and dinner inside...I heard it gets windy. I really can't decide on what package to do...we were going to go with the ultimate package. But now I'm not sure..if we have someone else do the pics and video I may just go with the silver package...we don't really need the live music during the cocktail hr...and we'll just get massages during our honeymoon. So with that extra $ we can put it towards other things. What are you doind for your music? I can't decide if I want to do the sound system or the DJ....Do you know if someone controls the sound system or are we on our own..probably on our own....

did you book a suite or a regular room..are you staying at the same resort for your hm or are you going somewhere else?

That's awesome you started planning so early..and this forums great....so much info!

We are using the included photographer. I have seen his work and liked it. But for the TTD we are using Cecilia Dumas, very excited!

 

The starfish for the bouquet can be found in a few placese. Here is one website..

Bouquet Jewels - Unique Bouquets for Unique Brides

 

Just type in bouquet jewels and a few other sites should come up

 

We are doing our reception on the beach for sure! We cant wait to dance by the water!

Hi there, would you mind telling me what you paid for both the photographer and the videographer?, my email is - jodey.williams@tsubaki.co.uk if you would rather email me, I think this is quite a big issue with alot of brides, not knowing wether to pay the extra and have an outside person, especially when we all hace budgets to stick to, I know mine has gone way out already !! And at the end of the day memories and photos are all we have left, thanks x

    • 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.
