I am going to be having dinner at one of the restaurants...any suggestions on which?? I did hear of one bride who chose the restaurant with a terrace and she said her reception was practically private without paying for a private one. I would love to do this!!
Mundaca Steakhouse had a nice lower terrace for dinner reservations but by no means is it private they can seat people on the level with you, if its slow that night you could luck out. Also El Greco had a nice view with a outside terrace.

Does anyone here have suggestions for planned activities around the resort? I would like to give my guests a short 'itinerary' of things to look forward to on the days leading up the wedding. So far I was thinking a welcome cocktail party at one of the bars, and possibly a pool party to get everyone together by the pool. Any ideashuh.gif

Question: I know that it was mentioned that for a private reception there is a 2 hour open bar for guests. However, being that the resort is AI, why are only allowed 2 hours? Can guests still order drinks after the 2 hours or do we need to purchase extra time? Im confused since technically we can get drinks for free any other time during our stay. Thanks ladies!

Angelov -- I don't know for sure, but I believe that what you are paying for with the private function are your own private bartenders and servers, which is why they only supply them for two hours and would charge you extra for more. The food and drinks are technically 'free'. Hope this helps?

Yeah, this doesnt make sense to me either...I guess because they have a bartender working just for your guests...i talked to Yazmin about it and she said that it is an extra $60 per hour for every 10 guests...so if you have 50 guests total and you want another 2 hours to make it a total of 4 hours open bar then it will cost an additional $600...hope this helps..

nicdeb -- don't base your calandar on me!! haha..this is just the kind of person I am :o) I love to plan, plan, plan! I think I'm just so excited to go that this keeps me busy haha. I would love to hear about your experience when you come back!! If if make you feel any better then only reason why I'm thinking about 'itinerary' now is because I wanted to put a page on my passport invitation to show the guests I will have things planned to be with them when they travel all that way :oP

    • 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.
