I do have a little story to tell - I had an awful day Friday when I took my sister to see my dress, the lady @ the shop was sooo rude just because I didn't purchase my shoes from her, she baisically told me not to email her has she dosn't have time and really made me feel like I was putting on her !! I did send her an email letting her know how I felt about the visit but no reply yet, I feel she has me over a barrell now as shes got 50% deposit, I even called the designer direct (PRONOVIAS) and told them what awful service I had but they said there was nothing they could do because she is indipendant, never mind, hopfully my next visit will be better !
Hey Jodey! Sorry to hear how this woman treated you! A friend of mine had the same thing happen locally and I so don't want to go to that shop!! Just tell her you are going barefoot for the ceremony!! LOL punk.gif

Tell her you aren't paying a penny until you have a workable contract, otherwise you are stuffed from a legal standpoint.

You need the protection as much as she does. Or do a sneaky which is what I am thinking of doing which is downgrade the package to basic and pay half that lol no reason they should have that much cash off you upfront.

You know what... I'm having the opposit effect, I'm trying to pay my deposit and they don't seem to be that bothered, probably because its not till end of next year huh.gif So I'm gonna leave it, they'll contact me when they want some money I'm sure,

I don't know why she wants it NOW, its over 365+ days till my wedding?

I think I emailed her back when I was securing my date to ask when I would need to make a deposit and I didnt really think she would need it so soon?

I emailed her last Friday about getting a contract and haven't heard anything yet. So if she wants the deposit she needs to send me the contract first. bunny_4.gif

Hey Jodey!

I was wondering about you, how you were doing?

That is horrible!! How can someone treat their clients like that!!?

I think when your dress comes in you should take it somewhere else to be altered and once you have the dress you should tell her how you're going to let everyone on the wedding forums you belong to know about her shop and how horrible she is and not to go there.

C'mon, just because you didn't buy your shoes therehuh.gif How much are shoes, really? Thats just not something worth being upset over! She needs to get over it!

So, I know I read it somewhere but I can't find it now. Does anyone know how much it is to have hair and makeup done for BM?

I haven't seen you on here in a while. That really sucks about your dress. I had something similar happen to me the first time I was married. They could have gotten my service again this go round if they would have treated me better! idiots!!

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
