Brides hair and make up is included in the Strawberry Passion package. 

 

I think the make up and updo is just the price in the spa list.  My bridesmaids did their own hair so I'm not sure about the price of that.  My sister did the make up,  It was about $55 I think.

Hi Ladies

 

Did anyone have Xhail Flores as their wedding coordinator? She is who I have been emailing back and forth and I was just wondering about other brides experiences with her. So far she has been great but I was wondering what it would be like when we get there.

 

 

Thanks for your help.

my wife and I had Xhail. She was pretty quick about returning emails compared to some of the horror stories you hear. Her English is also pretty good.

 

She did surprise us however by not mentioning she was going on vacation the week of our wedding so we actually got Grecia last second. They were both great.

 

All of the wedding coordinators do multiple weddings per week so I don't think there is anything they haven't seen at this point.

Hope this helps!

Question!....

i am having trouble figuring out what I am going to put on my invitations.  Did you guys do a reception card at all?  Did you put down location of ceremony and reception?  I am worried to do that in case I change spots of something once I get down there.  But if I don't, how will everyone know where to go?  Did you put times as well?  Haha a lot of questions, but am struggling with it.  Thanks!

We put the location and time, but ended up moving the cermony forward by one hour and just told everyone individually when we were down there. It was no big deal anyways as guests were asking about the location anyways and we had to tell everyone where to meet and at what time to take the little bus to the ceremony.

 

These are our invitations - http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/74340/joannes-diy-boarding-pass-invitations-with-photos-and-template

We didn't put any details in terms of time on our invitations. We put our wedding website information and that is where we update things such as time. We are also planning on handing out a wedding day itinerary for everyone when they arrive at the resort with the final details.

    • 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.
