For our group contract we set up a room block, then they created a web link for our guests to go and book. Any guest that books through that link, we get the credits for it. You can get a report from Yesenia, or your Miami contact with a report of who has booked. If they book through a travel agent, you have to add them to your guest list, but their room nights do not count towards the credit system unfortunatley. You can always RE-activate the link, our link is still working and its technically past the book date that Palace allowed us. They just release all of the rooms in your room block to the general public, so for your guests its first come, first serve, BUT they should be able to still book through that link! I would definitly ask what they can do about it, possibly give you half credit for the ones who didnt book through the link? I have gotten what I have asked for, because I preach that I am bringing them guaranteed business and money to their resort by having my wedding there.

Yes we had a bar at the welcome dinner at the Spa Terrace.  They just set it up with tables and white clothes but it looked nice.  The bar was built in at the Solarium Mundaca for the wedding reception so we didn't need to worry about that.

 

Do you plan on having alcohol at your wedding reception?  If so, then a bar is required.  Not sure what the price was.  Should be on the paperwork somewhere.  Sorry my memory sucks and I don't have my usb key that has all my wedding stuff on it.  Maybe someone else can comment on the price.

Here is the pic of my welcome cocktail at pandero. I was very disappointed when I first saw it without the 'roof', but I was happy I had it there.  They did end up adding another umbrella for us because of the sun, but it all depends on the time you are there.

If you do it as a private event as a cocktail hour, the bar, tables, cocktail menu & basic linens, should be included all in that private event. You can confirm with the wedding coordinator, but we are doing a private dinner and private cocktail hour, and menu & bar are both included.

What time of day were you there Jess?  I'm wondering if I should request extra umbrellas now.  Our cocktail party doesn't start until 6pm.  What do you think?

Our cocktail party was at 5pm.  I would say you will probably be ok at 6pm in May.  I wouldn't worry too much about it.  Our WC was there the WHOLE time, so she was the one who brought them over when she noticed we were all gathering under the one lol.  You can definitely tell them to be on the lookout for it if you are worried about it!

We chose the saxophone player, a live musician came with our wedding package. I chose some really pretty Latin music for him to play. Just heard back from Karime yesterday that he's able to play what we've chosen.  So happy!

    • 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.
