@@LaurenR I just got told that spoons cannot accommodate me for my rehearsal dinner anymore and wanted to move me to zocalo alfresco. I asked to be put in Topaz instead, haven't heard back yet. So I'm sure it's possible to have it somewhere else !!!

We used our rehearsal dinner as a brunch and held it at Zavas. Not sure if that was why we were allowed to hold it elsewhere (since it was not dinner??).

 

@@murmel - so frustrating! Did you book prior to arriving? I wonder if they will let me change on site. 

Hmm thats frustrating! Did you book prior to arriving down there? Do you think they would allow us to change on site?

It's been a few years, but I think we arranged it once we arrived.

@Jennypert- Could I please use the 2 photos of the ballroom in the official thread? It is one of the few photos I have seen of the ballroom decorated.

Hi Murmel,

 

Yes, of course you can use the photos. I've added a couple others showing the decorated Sky Deck a couple of hours before my wedding. I was told I was one of very few brides who used a red and white color scheme. I thought it was beautiful. Maybe it will inspire others to use red. It really pops against the white gazebo and blue sky and ocean.

Just for my curiosity is that sky deck on top of guests rooms?

Do they hold receptions there? And if yes, wouldn't that be disruptive to sleepers? Hahahah

Red is making a come back, I'm sure there will be more red weddings

Looks beautiful

It's a fairly small area, so I don't think so. When I first asked they said they didn't have it set up to provide dinner up there - not easily accessible to the kitchen, etc. they are allowing me to have my cocktail hour following my ceremony up there though.

I'm just being nosey, never seen such a thing, I just assumed it was it's old building or maybe above the lobby!

It looks beautiful and a ceremony plus cocktail up there would be awesome - yay!

    • 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.
