It was the best decision we made and are so happy with our choice. You can also see some pics of our ceremony set up on the beach at the sensatori and our reception at the new plaza. We were the first to have our reception there:) Some of our TTD photos are included as well. i just want to warn you there is a semi nudi pic but all of our parts are covered. There is a nude resort down the beach and all the girls had a day of pictures and one we were pretending to be on the nude resort. Hope no one is offended. I think they are cute and funny. Enjoy.

Your photographers did such a great job!!!! I love the pool shots with all of your guests. It's so great that you got so many photos around the resort. Our wedding day was so rushed that we were able to get a few in the lobby beforehand. I wanted more, but once the party got started, I never wanted to leave! Your TTD is awesome too! Congrats and I bet when you get the rest, you'll be equally pleased!

For anyone who has already been there... I talked with my travel agent and my guests are in the azul building and also the adult building. My fiance and I are in the honeymoon suite in the azul building. I wanted all of us in the same building since there is only 40 of us but I guess that is not how we have been arranged. Did you have everyone is the same building? If not, was it a problem or inconvienent? I am also concerned that our room is the family building. Is it loud due to children? Thanks!

Tracy,

How pretty!! I love the blue - I think we are doing the same, just a little darker. Did you have to bring the cover for the beach gazebo or did they provide that? Thank you so much for sharing!

To answer a few questions:

1) We brought our photographers with us. The policy was as long as they were guests for 2-3 days at the resort we didnt have to pay an outside vendor fee. I wasnt aware that policy had changed. even so worth paying the fee because I loved my photographers!

2) My lanterns were from target in the $2.00 section. Im not sure what size they were but about the size of a basketball. I had some smaller ones as well.

 

thanks for the all the nice complements on my photos! Its so nice to hear:)

Hey brides -

 

I think someone posted about this before, but it may have been in a trip report. Has anyone who's had their wedding already used the bridal suite in the spa? I have 7 bridesmaids plus my mom and me who will be getting hair done and they recommended I use the suite. I doubt I will get dressed there as we'll wrap up an hour before pictures start, but interested to hear others thoughts! Thanks!

    • 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.
