I am late to join, but I have been reading over these pages and want to say thanks for all the valuable information. Especially everything related to the re-opening plans! I feel more in the loop now.

 

I am getting married July 6th at del Mar.

 

Has anyone organized a fun group event that didn't cost an arm and a leg? I would like to plan and host a group event for all of my guests. There will be about 40 of us altogether.

Nope, the iberostar didn't do it. My florist did all the decorations and floral arrangements you seen he is marvin kinil at maya diseno floral his email is: marvin@mayadisenofloral.com.mx
and website: mayadisenofloral.com.mx

Also, random question for anyone. My soon-to-be sister in law just said that she heard nudity was allowed at some of the resorts!! I just wanted to know if anyone has seen any of that during their trips. I stayed at the Maya in 2006 and saw none of that. They have kids so I want to make sure they feel comfortable with staying there without having to worry about nakedness around the pool/beach.
I was just there and there is definetly no nakedness (well except when I went drunk skinny dippin in the ocean at 3 am) but definetly no nakedness allowed :)

ooohhh and a quick heads up... You do not need to wait for wedding coordinator to send you the marriage liscense and apositille to legally change your name in the usa! I thought i was gonna have to wait it out for the apositille (which takes the wc about 4-5 months) but you don't!!! So for all of you that are going to take the hubby's last name all you need is the certificates that the wc gives you while in mexico! I went to the social sercurity office today (you don't have to go in person I just did) and all you need is the marriage liscense/certificate (i don't know which is which but i think i have copies of both either will work), passport, driver's liscense/id card, and if you have your original social sercurity card than you fill out a S-55 form (you can do all this online and mail it from your house too) when there and vo-lah they will send you a new card in 2 weeks. (once, you apply for your social security card you can change all your credit cards and bank accounts over to your new name) I just applied for social security card today and changed all my credit cards and bank accounts in the same day. (credit cards were simple since they check everything electronically you don't have to do anything but make a phone call and the bank accounts i just had to show them my marriage certificate and reciept i got from social security office and they changed all the names on our accounts) Once, you have the social security card you can go to dmv with marriage certificate and social security card and get a new driver's liscense and id card. From there you can change passport and whatever else needs to be done. So don't wait for that apositille you don't need to!!!

I have just started to work on my welcome books. I was wondering if anyone has a schedule of events for the resorts. Do they still do paella on the beach? Does anyone have a copy of the beach/del mar resort map?

 

Thanks

Hi all! So, just got confirmation that we are not getting upgraded. sad.gif We will indeed be at the Quetzal on June 15th. We arrive on the 13th, and they are re-opening at least the Quetzal/Tucan on June 1st.

 

Time is ticking away and I'm still not done. I still need to get an outfit for my son, (he's BM) and a gift for the MOH.

 

I'm also just a bit scared... eek...

Has anyone heard if the Del Mar is open? The wedding coordinator told me the Beach side was open but did not mention anything about the Del Mar, but the travel agent is saying the Del Mar will be open..this is soo confusing!!

 

Attached is a resort map that the wedding coordinator sent me for the Del Mar/Beach.

    • 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.
