Why are you going to ditch the paper lanterns?  Is there no where to hang them?  I am thinking because of our numbers that we are are going to have to do our reception at the solarium mundaca and from the looks of it, there is no where to hang lanterns.

I'm starting to worry about the amount of things I have to take down!!  I have seen pictures of someone who hung white paper lanterns from the pandero terrace for the cocktail party and it looked really nice.  I was planning on doing that, but now I'm wondering if its really worth trying to find a place to pack them??? What do you think?  It really would be the only decoration that I'll have for the cocktail party...

I love the idea of paper lanterns and I feel like they won't take up that much room.  When they are folded they are pretty small.  Have you already reserved these spots or are you waiting to talk to the WC?

That's true, they do fold flat. As far as decorations go, I only need to pack orange satin sashes for the chairs, the aisle runner and small vases for my girl's bouquets (unless the resort will let me use 5!?) -- their flowers are going to be my centerpieces for the dinner, I'm keeping it simple.  The big thing is the OOT bags and contents.

 

Honestly....I had Dulce as a WC who never answered me for anything....I haven't been told that Wilma is my new WC like most of you have!?  Is Dulce gone officially??  Maybe I should email Wilma??  I haven't reserved anything yet because I've never been answered!

Skadow, are you doing all white, your colors or a mix??  My girls are all wearing a "glacier" blue color, so orange is my accent color.  I was thinking of either doing all white, all orange or a mixture of the two.  What do you think?

I found lanterns that pack flat....so they shoiuldn't take up too much room in a carry on.  Also, I talked to Yazmin and she said that they will handle putting them up if you bring all the materials that are needed.  (waiting for clarification as to what else she made need ie: extension cords etc.)

 

I also sent Lily the decor coordinator a message and her quote for hanging lanterns alone was $400.00!!!  Which is totally crazy.

 

I found them for about 15 bucks a strand online. 

 

Just an FYI.

What was the site you found them on? I couldn't find big lanterns that came in a set so I bought 50 12in lanterns. I also about LED lights for them so I wouldn't have to deal with electricity. I also contaced Lily, she came back with a simlar quote, I passed on it. However I think I am going to go with her and have gold lights on the palms trees near our spot. She wanted $125 for 6 trees.

Does anyone have Wilma's email address?  I want to email her and get my spots reserved for my cocktail social and reception dinner.

 

It makes me very happy that they will put up all of the decorations that we bring. woot.gif

    • 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.
