There are a tons of newbies, most of whom I haven't welcomed yet. Everyone needs help with their DIY projects and I can barely assemble a PB&J sandwhich. Everyone talks about exercising, drinking lots of water, sticking with their weight watchers points, and I sit on my fat arse watching Beverly Hills 90210 on DVD, while stuffing my face with cheeseburgers and greasy fries. I have never posted one pic or linked anyone to a threadback b/c let's face it if the POWER button wasn't so large on my computer screen I wouldn't know how to turn the damn thing on. I have never set foot in a bridal store so I know nothing about tulle or organaza or charmeuse or whatever the hell the dress styles are called. Everyone has pretty tickers and monograms and let's just be honest I'm lucky I can spell my own name.


And yet knowing all this the moderators still nominated me. I am absolutely speechless b/c I think you have all made a big mistake. However, I will try my best to be a good moderator and help as much as I can. I may not know much but gosh darnit as long as there is google, I will find the answer!!!


Thank you to everyone for their congrats, I really appreciate it. And thank you to the moderators for having faith in me.


(I feel like that part in mean girls where Lindsay Lohan gives a speech when she wins homecoming queen and the principal is like "people don't normally give speeches during these things." Okay I've embarassed myself enough I will stop)

    • 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.
