Hi girls!  I am starting to get really nervous....my wedding is on September 25 at Iberostar Rose Hall Beach and we are having a lot of trouble getting anyone to reply to our emails in a timely manner.  Anyone have any luck just calling the resort to get some questions answered?  I know they are busy but 2 or more weeks for a reply is a bit ridiculous when my wedding is less than a month away!

 

Also, I am using the resort photographer but wondering if you get all pictures taken on a cd instead of just the few pictures that you get printed in your package?  Did anyone get a video done with the resort?  Is it worth it?

 

Thanks in advance girls!  :)

Jules,

 

Hey!  It seems like everyone has their own unique way of doing this when it comes to destination weddings so honestly I don't think you can go wrong.  Travel agents are a huge help!  Let me share how I handled booking:  I sent out my save the dates Feb. 1st and I printed my travel agents information on them.  I am a very anal so I only wanted them to go through her in order for things to work out the way they have so far : ).  The deadline for booking the trip and placing deposits down was March 31st.  They have until September 30th to pay for their trip in full and we leave for the wedding on November 20th.  This worked out perfect and it was not too early for booking at all and we got the rooms we wanted!  Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hey JessicaC,

 

I have too am having my wedding at IRHB and have called them a couple times with questions.  The first time I called, I asked if I could speak to the wedding coordinator or anyone whowould be able to answer my wedding questions, but no one was there. From my impression, their either really busy or they only work a few days in the week.  So you have to catch the wedding coordinator at just the right time.  After a couple of tries, I did get a hold of someone, but it seems like whether i wrote an email or personally called, the response time is the same. Then again, if you have the time to call, it's worth a try, especially since your wedding is so near.

 

And I wouldn't worry too much about the photography stuff.  You can always upgrade later, right?  But I am looking at my "extra charges" sheet that they had emailed me and they have a few different packages that range from $300 (24 pics) to $875 (70 pics).  The DVD (edited appro. 45 mins) is $350. And it also says that the processing of photos takes 3 days after being shot.

 

Good luck!

Hey Girls,

 

Anyone doing a sand unity? I want to, but don't know how well it will do travel back home. Won't all the sand get mixed together and look ugly.

 

Any suggestions?

Nikki,

 

Do you know if we are allowed to bring colored sheer to add to the huppa?  I'm really confused on how I want my layout to be.  A huge part of me wants a beach party with a bonfire and maybe a band the night before the wedding.  Does this seem crazy?

    • 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.
