I haven't decided for sure yet. I have to see how much his assistant does and if he stays the whole time, etc. I would feel awkward giving his assistant something and not him so I'm probably giving either both or neither. I guess it will depend on how happy I am with their work. More than likely I will have tip money ready for them bc I do think they will do a great job. I dunno... The whole tip thing is so hard! Lol I am a big tipper and believe in tipping well so I don't want to miss anyone :/
Ya am def gonna have money ready as well... I certainly don't want to under tip anyone and I've heard really good things about doremixx... But yeah if the assistant is literally just there for a few minutes to set up am not sure I would tip him ... As for the dj though I think I will for sure give him something... I cocktail waitressed for so long that I just always want to make sure people are properly tipped :-) I think I will probably not tip the minister though but give something to the wedding coordinator if they do a great job and definitely extra to the servers and bartenders

I'm starting to think about this also... Our reception is 6-10, 4 hours long as well!
So we don't have an exact time line but our reception starts at 7 and we are going to have the dj announce our wedding party and then us .... Right after we walk in he will announce our first dance and then do the father daughter dance and then the mother son dance .... Then about 20 minutes of everyone dancing and when the first course is served we will have the dj announce the speeches for maid of honor and best man .... Not sure about the cake cutting probably a few minutes before dessert is served though ... Definitely want to get the dances and speeches done right in the beginning though so the rest of the night we can just relax and party!!

Hey everyone! My wedding date is soon approaching (june 15) and I had a question regarding the amplifier rental. For the iPod jack, is a jack for the actually IPod or an extension for the headphone jack?

Hey Ladies,

 

For those of you who did TTD, did you guys do it the very next day?  What time did you guys start?  We want to do a few shots on the beach and in the pool but we want to have as few people as possible so I I know we have to do it early but just not sure how early?  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

We are actually doing our later in the day bc it's good lighting. We are doing it the day after the wedding and our photographer is taking us to a different beach

Hey Girls,

 

for anyone interested in a silk bouquet - I spoke with the company that did mine and I loved it.  They have offered a additional discount for anyone that mentions my name - DAWN .  The prices were amazing and the customer service was excellent.  I found them on ebay.  ebloomingdesign

 

I hope the link below works.  They are so inexpensive but the bouquets look amazing.  Here's a pic of mine.  They will work with you directly to get you the bouquet you want.

Hi ladies!! Dawn, again you made a beautiful bride and congratulations!!

I'm heading out next week to the Sensatori!!!! I can't believe I'll be there in a few days, soaking up the rays & sipping pina coladas! Any last minute advice before I fly away ?

A huge thank you to everyone on here who has been encouraging & welcoming through this whole crazy process! All of the ideas & inspiration I found on here were a huge help and I hope to share pictures after our wedding for you all to see!

XO

Jenny

    • 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.
