Stamp the bag with your letter, sprinkle the embossing powder over the stamped letter (do one letter at a time through the whole process) then dump the bag over on a piece of paper to get rid of all the excess powder and then take the heat dryer and hold over your stamped letter until it heats up and becomes smooth.  Continue on with all of your letters!  Just make sure that there isn't any excess powder on the bag or when you heat the powder you'll have speckles everywhere.  I use a very small brush around the letters to make sure the area is clear of excess powder.  Practice on a piece of paper first.

 

Very easy!  Good luck.

Finally heard from my WC last night!  Karime sent me an email last night.  Just need to confirm the details and provide the guest list.  Do any of you guys know how the room nights booked work?  We had some people book through a travel agent and others booked online.  I'm afraid they won't count our online nights booked which will make me really mad!  I mean I'm still bringing business to their resort!

I believe they needed to be booked through your travel agent/group booking number.  If they didn't you probably won't get the room nights allocated to your total.  We made sure everyone booked through our group booking since it really made a difference on the events we were having.  You will have to ask your WC how many nights she shows booked for your group and compare it to all your guests who have booked already.

I had my welcome dinner at the Spa Terrace and loved it.  Since it is for your reception and you have 24 ppl total and the piano only holds 30 that would probably not be enough room to have the buffet, the cake table, dance floor and bar and not be crowded.  I would go for the larger locations to have more room and that way you can setup the rectangular tables in any design you want.

Yeah thats what we were afraid of!!  I know at least my mother in law (go figure!) didn't book through our travel agent but a few people did book after our group contract had already run out so I don't know how that all works.  My fiance is all up in arms over them counting the nights but what can we do right?!

hey lades what are you (or did you) do with your rings before the ceremony? did you wear them, carry them with you, leave them in the room safe?

 

Did you/do you trust the security of the rooms and safe to leave those super important and expensive rings there?

 

confused about this!

We're wearing ours on the plane.  My wedding band is not going through security without being attached to my body.  Once we get there I'll put it in the safe in the room.

 

I know you can't stand the Pandero but...we decided on this area for our after ceremony cocktail hour.  We're going to have fabric banners strung in an x in the center of the beams and then we're going to string paper lanterns between the posts.  I wanted a space that was open that I had the ability to hang lanterns and this was it. (If I go down there and see differently, I may change my mind)

 

We're having our welcome cocktail private function Wed night before the wedding for 2 hours at the Cover Terrace.  The view is beautiful! And we timed it so we can watch the sun set.

Rooms do have to be booked through your contract booking number.  But keep in mind the bride and groom's room counts towards your room nights!  Even though we have a small party coming we did okay because our room alone gave us 9 room nights!

 

Talk to your WC and explain the situation. She may be able to throw you a little something.  No harm in asking with puppy dog eyes!

 

Good luck.

    • 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.
