Yes, November is a very cheap time to travel, I think pretty much the cheapest of the year, well maybe Sept & Oct are cheapest due to hurricane risk. Although some people think summer is the slowes (because who wants to go somewhere hot when it's hot back home) there are still lots of people who take advantage of school vacation to go then, so summer isn't super busy but not super slow either. Fall however is very slow and then things pick up mid december.

For the ladies who have used the resort videographer - were you happy with it and is it worth it? I'm debating whether or not to do it or just make a slide show out of the photos?

I just wanted to throw out a suggestion to those of you having a small wedding with under 20 guests...the seaside grill is obviously great (I'm having my reception there too), as are all the other restuarants, but when I was there last weekend I also saw a wedding reception dinner done in the massage hut on the beach for 16 people. It was beautiful and private and right on the beach...here is a pic. I don't know if it would cost more, but I'd imagine not much

This is just beyond the "quiet pool" nearer the water activities hut

and I know I owe you all my list of Q&A and I promise I'll get that this weekend. a couple of things Landy still needs to find out about are the cost of fire dancers and lounge furniture (I know a lot of us are waiting eagerly for those costs...hopefully she'll let me know soon)

    • 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.
