We are doing the exact same thing, and my wedding coordinator told me that there will be a symbolic certificate that we'll sign at the ceremony.

Shires:

 

Congratulations!

I wouldn't worry about it. My hair and makeup were finnished at about 9:45. I had to wait til about 10:15 for the flower to be put in my hair. But if you have that planned with your coordinator ahead of time you should be finnished by 9:45. Even though by the time me and my bridesmaids got back to the room it was already 10:20 and my dad and the carriage was picking me up at 10:30. We didn't feel rushed. We were dressed by 10:30 just in time for the photographer to take pictures and then we were on our way.

You should have plenty of time.

Question for any of you ladies who used an alternate aisle runner or are planning to:

 

How are you transporting it down with you? Or does the MP have any available?

Not to sound conceited but I want my FI and I to be front and center for the big day not hidden away behind a table

We were married at the MP last April - we only stood behind the altar for pictures/champagne - otherwise we were "front and center" throughout the ceremony - they did include our guests in the ceremony as far as everyone wishing a blessing on our marriage - it felt very personal - and I never felt like I was tucked behind a table!

1. To veil or not to veil? I wore a veil - it was windy but the photog had me tuck it into the back of my dress for close-ups and it looked great - otherwise it was kinda cool to see it blowing in the wind on some of the pics!

2. Have you seen the beach at MP b4? The beach does have seaweed on it - but they clean it up really good and they have some romantic spots with nice chairs and covered areas as well so it really isn't a big problem.

 

3. Bug bites Nobody in our group got any bug bites - I never even saw any bugs!!

 

4. Photogs….I used MP photog and was SO SO SO happy with the pictures - they seriously turned out fantastic!! I feel 100% confident recommending you use the MP photog - they did great - here is an example of one of our pics :

5. What package are you doing? We did the free package - but got the horse drawn carriage - we had a cocktail hour before the reception - we actually skipped the sit down meal and I'm glad we did because the cocktail hour had tons of food and they set up tables and chairs off to the side of our reception site - it worked out great - people could eat, dance, drink, and we had our own private bar the whole time - all FREE!! It was fantastic!!

I have another quick question- has anyone had, or is anyone planning on having cupcakes instead of their wedding cake?? I just saw it as an option on the attachment but wasn't sure which is tastier or if there's no difference...

    • 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.
