Valentin Imperial Maya Brides?

Recommended Posts

I have 24 ( enough for 8 tables). The orchids are fake. I got them at AC Moore.  I haven't bought all of them yet but I plan on buying them in 3 different colors...the ones shown, a darker purple and a lighter purple.  I will also be leaving the overlays, rocks and shells as well if you are interested in them. When I post my planning thread (maybe another month from now), I will take a better picture.

Hello all VIM brides! I have been researching this blog for the past couple of days, and I have found it very helpful. I decided to comment in order to get some advice. My wedding date is slowly approaching, and I feel like a total slacker. I didn't realize how much was involved in planning a destination wedding! Currently I am trying to book a photographer. Any suggestions or recommendations? And prices too, if possible. Thanks!

PM me your name and wedding date and I'll email Ana about it. I don't think it should be a problem

Hi Jamie!!  I don't have a problem with you using them as long as the resort still has them!!  I would contact Veronica about this. My date is 10/21/11 and my WC is Ana.

Nicole-

Since we're getting married the same weekend...what color are your overlays? I'm wondering if we could share some decor? 

Also, did Ana or Veronica say anything to you about the open bar costs? I wasn't aware that there would be any additional cost for alcohol. 

Less than 90 days!! Ahhh!

I do plan on leaving all my stuff down there after so if anyone wants to use anything I'll let them know when I'm there!

Hi Everyone,

 

I've been reading this thread and can't believe there are so many additional costs!  I was definitely unaware of the additional open bar cost for the cocktail hour! This was never mentioned when we were talking about the packages! Oh well! : )

 

I'm starting to figure out my color scheme and am so overwhelmed!!  Ana has sent me some catalogs but I don't even know where to begin! Any tips??

    • 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.
