I'm thinking of having the cocktail reception on the beach then moving to the pool terrace....I did call Landy out on this, as well as the back and forth with the bonfires. Remember how after the closing they said bonfires were out...then, someone went down rite after and they were on....and now of course, they are back off!!!! so annoying!! I'm now just getting excited to get down there and enjoy it instead of waiting and worrying..I know it will be great no matter what:))
I saw many a dinner by the dolphin pool while i was there and it looked really great! I don't remember if any had a DJ or not, but it will be great at this location. The pool is lit up at night and it looks really pretty. I did not have an aisle runner either for the beach ceremony...definitely not needed at all, unless you really like it. It was really awesome to walk down the aisle in my barefeet! They have a little and when I say little, really, really, really small pit that they dig and throw a few branches in to make a bonfire. Not really very exciting. But they could do it. They had one one night as part of the entertainment. BUT it was not a grand bonfire by any means. I didn't even see it at first actually, that's how small it was.

Thanks for the info on the welcome cocktail hour!

 

I'm wondering if maybe that'll turn into more of a rehearsal dinner now. It seems like some brides had a rehearsal before the wedding but some didn't. Would you recommend a rehearsal? Is this something I need to request or do they just assume that there will be one?

We didn't have a rehearsal before-if you want one they will do one but I dont think you really need one.

Yes-they do the wedding canopy but not the chairs

Thanks for that information. I am getting married at the end of February 2010, and I am still debating wheather having the reception outside. I am not sure if it will be too chilly. Especially if I have it on the beach. Any elses thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Just wanted to let you ladies know (in case things get too crazy in the next few days and I forget) that I am leaving Saturday for an amazing vacation to Greece! (a very belated honeymoon of sorts, seeing as we only spent 1 day at DT after the wedding, and our february vacation to Jamaica was not the best due to bad weather, so now I am kinda thinking of this as our honeymoon). So I won't be around much for the next 3 weeks. I will update the bride list shortly after I get back (likely not till early July) so don't be concern if the latest updates (since the last round I did at the beginning of May) are not posted before then.

    • 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.
