So what are ya'll doing for your something borrowed?
Hhhhhhhmmmmmmmm... something borrowed.... I suppose there's the traditional/typical stuff... jewelry (earrings, bracelet, ring, etc), a viel, hair accessories, maybe a clutch... sorry, my creative juices aren't flowing this morning. sad.gif

Iberostar09 -- Nice suggestion.

Here are a few more items you can borrow...
toasting flutes (if not personalized), silverware to cut the cake, a book from the library to read a poem/scripture from or if your mom/sister/aunt still has their garter

Well since we are on subject- I can't come up with anything old. Using my FI moms earrings for borrowed. No old jewelry pieces in family.

 

Also, I have had no response from WC since gabriella left. E mailed over 2 wks ago

That sucks Gail! sad.gif I wish I could say I'm surprised but Reyna doesn't seem like she's as "on the ball" as Gabriela was. I mean she's nice enough, but still...if it makes you feel any better, I still don't have my marriage certificate with apostille yet.

Also, if you have bars you recommend to meet at I would greatly appreciate the info!
I really am working on a review, but being the idiot that I am, I decided to get married, move to a new town and start a new job all in the same month, so it's been really busy for me the last few days...

The Vitrales room was perfect. It gave us privacy, we did speaches, cut the cake there etc. The Ipod connections were all there, we actually plugged into a laptop and used itunes, but all the connections were there. They had a speaker and a microphone...which had great sound. It just really felt like a real reception as opposed to just hanging out in one of the bars. We had the room from 8 - 10:30 and then we all headed over to the disco.

I'm hoping to get my review out by the end of the week.

Sorry - missed this part. We usually met in the lobby bar at the Lindo. There's also an open area with seating just across from the lobby bar that we would sit at as well. But that was the general meeting point.

Did you have a sand ceremony? Did you have to write anything for the ceremony or bring your own music? I'm doing the Civil Ceremony. I only have about 15 people coming down so far and don't expect anymore than about 25. Just trying to keep it simple as possible.

Thanks,
Noel

Noelynn - We did not have a sand ceremony but I am sure that if you wanted to, they would certainly accommodate for it after the judge is done performing the civil ceremony. I didn't bring my own music but Gabriela told me that I was more than welcome to bring my own. Hope this helps!

Wow you sure are busy! That is a lot of new things to happen all at once!

Thanks for that info. I am thinking now we might rent it out...we are having an AHR, but it would be nice to hang out and have a private room for everyone to chill and relax and talk.

The Lobby Bar...good to know! Thanks again! smile03.gif

My Fi is going down next week for work- an hr away from resort. They have him on tight schedule. I scheduled with gabriella for him to meet for about hr on 29th. She emailed before she left to send reminder to Reyne- well I did but no response. Hope she is available when he shows- if anyone needs him to check out anything in person let me know. Again, he don't have much time but he said to make him a list. Speak now or forever hold your peace

    • 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.
