Virginia-At RPRM no they don't have a laundry area, but yes they will do it for you. I can't remember the prices, but I did look and don't remember thinking it was that bad. I also didn't have to get my dress steamed as it wasn't wrinkled, but there was a price for getting things pressed so I'm sure they can do it.

 

As far as your hair, I don't think you need to have a trial done. As long as you bring a pic of what you want they are really talented and can pretty much recreate anything. I was a little nervous but they did a great job on myself and my two sisters air.

So haven't been on here for a while.. hope all you RPRM brides are doing well :) :) 

Scarp- YAY congrats, cant wait to hear about your experience. I am sure it will be amazing just like it was for me.

 

Virginia- I agree with Dana, they did a fantastic job with our hair. I think I even liked it better then the hair trial i did at home with my regular hair stylist as I got it colored. I would not have had to do the trial at home in my opinion. Not sure if this was posted with my review but here is the back of our hair, it is me and the sister on my right as you are looking at the pic from your computer who got it done!Our hair.jpg

 

Well get anxious to get all my prof pics back.. he thought he would have them done in 2-3 weeks, well its been over 4 weeks now! Just emailed him saying I was getting excited to see them. He took well over 1000 I would guess so I am sure it is just taking longer then he thought. I will share some as soon as i get them!

    • 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.
