Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I was trying to find that list of brides to add myself to the list, but couldn't find it :-(

 

So here is my post to introduce myself in the specific thread for the resort!

 

My wedding date is March 17, 2009...I didn't realize it was St Patty's day until after someone told me...then I saw that the resort will be serving green beer on that day cheer2.gif

As I'm writing this I'm realizing how much there is to do in less than 2 months! I have to admit I've been procrastinating too much of this planning business!smile43.gif:
My niece and nephew are joining us for the big day, and at the time of the wedding they will be 5 and 7 years old. Lizet has told me numerous times that the kids are watched around the clock and most of the time parents have to drag them kicking and screaming back to the room.

I know from other vacations at all inclusive places I have taken, that kids that have been dropped off in "daycare" have tons of fun and there is always multiple adults around to keep the busy and happy!

I'll have tracking # and getting insurance, so that makes me feel a little better. I'm shipping this weekend!...wish me luck. I'm going to hopefully post my planning post soon too.
Hello there, like you I too have decided to ship the non-essentials to Dreams ahead of time. Packed in my mother and father's suitcase is the turqoise tulle for the gazebo and chairs, my turquoise table runners I had made up, and our sand ceremony vases.

Packed in a box to be shipped out within about a week from now are my wedding favors (tea light beach themed candles), shell placecard holders for the dinner, my starfish for the chairs, seashells (because apparently they are expensive to purchase in Tulum), garter, and wedding programs that my father made up. Basically the stuff we could life without, but would prefer not to is being shipped and the stuff mentioned above that is going with my parents is the stuff I couldn't imagine not having on the special day.

I hope the shipping stuff ahead of time works for everyone! I will let you all know after I get back!! :) Wedding is Nov 5/08.

Well, as I so often do, I changed my mind about shipping. We checked some prices and they seemed outrageous. I checked with my airline about baggage fees and found out they have no baggage fees at all for international flights! We each get two checked bags and a carry on, so hopefully we can fit all in 6 bags! If not, we will just have to pay for one extra bag which won't be bad. It probably would be so much easier to ship, but we are just going to lug it all with us! I def would like to know how the shipping turned out though.

We had a whole group of kids with us that week, 15 in total. Ages from 18 months to 17 years old. The kids that were between 5-8 went to the kids club and they loved it. They have different things for them to do all day. You don't have to sign them up for the whole day, it can just be for specific events that they have going on. My sister with the 18 month old hired a baby sitter for the night of the wedding and a few nights after and she was very comfortable with them.

That is very cool about the cruise-can you provide the info for me? I would love to do that one day with my guests

Can you tell me how to add an avatar pic? I've been trying but so far the technology has been lost on me!

Oh, and of course, welcome to our new member "marryingmybestfriend". Hope everything works out for you!

    • 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.
