Loved loved loved Ilka and her team

There is a much cheaper price if you want to day of wedding hair makeup only.

But to get her to travel to Playe, she lives about 4 hours away and stay for the night and come out to the resort two days in a row that is the cost.

On the vendor fee they did not charge us for her as we promised that she would not eat, drink, or use the resort as she would only be there for a short period of time.

Hi Elisha,

dj mannia was separate from the resort. It was totally worth the extra money though. I saw a great review on this forum and then contacted them through email.

Awww...I wish I would've realized it was you, Natalie, I would've loved to chat with you while we were there!

 

Our wedding was right after yours inside...too bad about all of the rain, but it was still beautiful!

 

My mom loved, loved, loved your hair by the way! It looked beautiful!

 

ps...sorry about the music, we didn't realize how much it was travelling sad.gif

We turned it down as soon as we were asked to.

Hi everyone!!!

 

I've been missing in action for so long now. I have been so busy the last month trying to get all the details down for our wedding. I'm happy to say that we are now finally married and absolutely loved the experience! We are still here in Mexico in a different resort for our honeymoon, but thought I'd drop a quick note to update everyone. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED our ceremony and reception and can't wait to post our review. I will definitely get on that along with my planning thread when we get back. Everything was absolutely perfect except for our co-ordinator. I don't want anyone to panic as almost everyone on this forum has had great experiences with them. We were just unforutnate to have had such a crappy experience which we are still dealing with right now :o( I'm sure it will all turn out and I will update everyone when we get back. Again, don't panic, from what I've heard from others, they do an amazing job. Ours was probably just a one-off.

 

Congratulations to all the other recent brides. I saw a bunch of people getting married during our stay and wasn't sure who was who (haha), but all the other weddings were beautiful and I'm sure everyone had just as great a time as we did. I'll talk to you ladies soon!!! :o)

Hi again,

 

Wondering if the ladies that just got married could answer a couple questions...

 

- Did you have live music at the ceremony? If so, what were the song choices? Were you happy with the turn out?

- Did you have a DJ? Did you think it was worth while or is an IPOD just as good?

- What did you bring for wedding goodies/welcome packets?

- Did you bring anything that you thought was essential? IE. Placecards or things like that?

 

Thanks! Your reviews are so much appreciated, and I love reading what a great day you all had!

 

=)

    • 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.
