Don't quote me on this...I have heard rumors that people staying at the MC may be charged a day pass to the ME, but to go from the ME to MC is fine.  I guess because the ME is higher priced, they don't want MC guests taking advantage of everything that they didn't pay for.  But really, who's gonna know during the day if they are in the pool or on the beach....I would double check with the resort....

Hello ladies! I am in need of some advice. Our wedding ceremony is at 3pm and since the dinner isn't until 6:30 I'm not exactly sure what to do with our guests for the approx. 2.5 hours in between. I know you can have a cocktail hour in one of the bars and order hors d'oeuvres but not sure my FI will agree with me on that since you have to pay extra for the food. I just feel bad leaving my guests with free time when they are dressed up (we are doing beach formal attire). I highly doubt people will want to go swimming or back to their rooms. Any past brides have any advice?!

 

Thanks!!

Hi Jenna326

 

Our wedding is at 1pm and dinner at 6:30.  I did look into a cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres but after seeing the menu and its prices we decided against it. When I asked our WC what our guests would do in between she said they could go for a late lunch, hang out at the pool....lol  She was not pushy at all about selling me on the cocktail hour.  Keep in mind you will be busy...after your ceremony you will have your champagne toast and photos I'm sure.  The in between time could be used to head back to their rooms to freshen up and relax before your reception.

You could tell guests to meet in one of the bars around 5 or 530 for a few drinks before dinner. Then the gap between the ceremony and dinner won't seem as long

I have an even greater problem.  My wedding starts at 1pm! :/ (the "only" time available that day).  I have NO idea what my guests will do for 5 hours! Of course I will do groups pics but maybe there is something else we can do as a group.  Seems like such a looooong time.  :(  Any suggestions?

not sure if everyone will want windblown hair but maybe a little boat cruise?? I know it adds an additional expense though... or, you could do a group lunch instead of dinner, then have some downtime before drinks and dancing or whatever you are doing (if anything) for a reception later?

That was my other idea. I think I like that better than having to pay for app's. I guess a little break in between would hurt anyone, it would prob. be refreshing.

 

Thanks for your help!

My wedding is at 1pm as well (only time the judge was available).  I too was stressing about this huge gap but I'm sure the guests will understand.  We might have everyone meet up in the upstairs piano bar an hour before dinner.

Hello

 

I'm getting married at 1pm also and I booked a private dinner at the Parrot Bar at 6:30. I know there will be champagne and group pictures but my question is, are you going to change or you will stay with the wedding dress? I loved my dress so much that I don't want to wear for only an hour or two... ;)

Are you guys doing?

 

Another thing, does anybody know how much the orchid bouquet is?

What are you guys giving as a favour? What about the decoration, are you bringing things with you?

 

 

Bettina

    • 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.
