Wow...it's amazing the inconsistency on this topic. I emailed Tiffany 2 days ago to let her know which outside vendor I've booked for my photography, and she said it was fine and she would just add it to my detail sheet.

I am in pacic mode!!!! I have 50 guest for my wedding....Most have booked! Unfortunatly the only ones that havent are my brother and sister and their families. They are the only one's bringing kids which is why we chose this resort over the El Dorado.... To make a long story even longer, they procrastinated and now the resort is BOOKED!!!! Are there any brides blocking rooms where the block might lift for MAY 7-12 OR 6-13 OR ANYTHING!!! HELP!!!! They are booked the 7-9th and our wedding is the 9th. Any help or room changes would be greatly appreciated.

 

Also, Are any of your guests staying at other resorts and getting day passes? If so what does that consist of and do you have resort reccomendations that will take kids near byhuh.gif??

Oh man that sucks...I sure hope it works out for you! I have a friend's large family with kids & grandparents that are renting a villa in the area and the parents are coming to the resort for the wedding day. I think the day passes are around $75 USD per adult. I have an idea...I'll PM you.

How about Azul Beach? Great for kids! The Paradisus isn't too far away either, very nice and allows kids.

The resort is sold out our weekend too, but luckily we got mostly everyone to book.

Thanks to everyone on the forum for being so helpful. I really appreciate all of the advice. We will figure something out. Worst case scenario they will rent a house or try for another resort and get the day pass. It's just crazy b/c they were the main people we needed and wanted there and now we have all of our friends and most of our fam and missing 2 main componentsshots.gif

A little birdie told me that it's possible that you can get into the Azul Sensatori easily via the beach. There are no wristbands and since the hotel is at capacity, is anyone really going to know? They really have nerve charging day passes for a wedding!! Ask your TA to pull some strings, perhaps they can get a few passes for you. There is absolutely no harm in asking.

Phew, at first i thought i was crazy for paying $15k for room deposits but wow I am glad that I did!!

Good luck!

I finally heard from Tiffany and am just waiting now for my final payment to go through. A great weight has been lifted!! And she confirmed us for the Plaza Deck.

It just depends on what you want to do, I've been in weddings where they have paid and where I have paid. We are paying for their dresses, jewelry, etc. and 3 nights stay for our wedding party.

So sorry to hear that!! Keep us posted on what happens. We have a few family members that have decided to stay elsewhere and are getting the day passes to attend. My suggestions for resorts are the same as already posted.

    • 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.
