Dress shopping was fun but a little overwhelming. I actually found my dress before I picked a resort, but I'm ok with that! Keep us updated on "the dress."
Congrats on the internship! What kind of internship?

Thanks shellk & Jen, the blue diamond was my mom and my fiance had it reset in the pave setting. I already have my something blue!

 

shellk, my plan is to book at rprm because of you girls. I actually spent my entire Sunday reading all your comments, and I "feel" like this is the one! I can't wait to hear how everything goes!

 

Jen, the internship sounds like an awesome opportunity.

Jen,

 

Congrats on your internship.

 

I sent out preliminary RSVP's with my STD's. I wanted to get a estimated count of how many people were thinking of coming so I could do OOT bags, luggage tags etc.... I sent out my STD the first week in January and made the RSVP date April 1st. Good news is I already got about 20 back, but there are till about 55-60 out.

 

KimmyG-what are you going to do about the people that didn't respond? Are you assuming they aren't coming or are you going to contact them?

So this is dress one... we added the sash because we wanted a bow in back. so the front would be better pinned if purchased :)

Welcome Amber! And very gorgeous ring!!!

 

Jen- You should totally do the internship in Vegas!!! You definitely can't pass something like that up! And I wish I could see the dresses you posted right now, but they don't show up on my work computer!!! I can't wait to see them when I get home!

 

KimmyG- Have you heard from Ael yet? I think she actually emailed me at the beginning of January...I was actually surprised, since my wedding is at the end of March. And I can't believe almost half of your guests didn't RSVP!!! That irritates me more than anything!!! My bridal shower is this Sunday and I STILL have people who didn't RSVP...so now I'm to the point where I hope they DON'T show up...because I didn't account for them with my seating chart and favors, lol!

That's so awesome that you'll have your pharmacy degree! Mine will be my MBA...only a few more months to go!

 

Shelk- It sounds like you've got everything all set to go! I'm getting so excited for you!!!

Jen- its such a tough decision because they both look stunning on you! I love the back of the 1st one, but I really like the uniqueness of the 2nd one. At the end of the day I don't think you can go wrong with either one! You are just one of those lucky girls who looks great in a lot of dresses! Pick the one that makes you feel beautiful and maybe a little sexy wink.gif Let us know what you decide! Sorry I didn't help...this is coming from someone who has had like 6 diff. dresses! haha, don't worry I don't have that many now wink.gif

Amber - Welcome and congrats on picking the RPRM, you will not be dissapointed it is absolute heaven!! Gorgeous ring too!!

 

Jen - I like dress #2, you look amazing in it!! :) Thats great about your internship, It is great to have the oppurtunity and that you have such a supportive fiance. Lucky you!

 

kimmyg - For your rsvp's I would try not to get things done too far ahead of time or just get extra for people you think might come. We had people booking a week before we went which made it difficult but thankfully I had just got extra's of everything. Apparently people do not take rsvp cards for destination weddings seriously...who knows why!

 

Shellk - I am soo excited for you, only 13 days to go until you are married!!! I so wish I was going back there right away...I can't wait to see your pictures!!!!

Hello

I was looking up the wedding packages for 2011 and the Caprice package is now for 40 people instead of 60. Does anyone know what happens if you have 60 guests? Does the RPRM not accomodate 60 people anymore?

    • 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.
