Hi Ladies,

 

I have heard back from Kamila and here are the answers to all of your questions...

 

Please let me know on this thread about date first.. I am open to taking off Friday, March 6th - but my work is flexible. I will go with the majority.

 

THE DATE- I am ok with either date honestly

Kamila wrote:

Would Friday March 6th work for you girls at all?

I could do March 7th but I spoke to Michelle LoConte today and she has a wedding that day so she wouldn't be able to start until the afternoon. I prefer to start at noon or earlier so that we have as much natural light as possible. By March the sun sets a little later than it does now, so we might be okay if we start around 2:00, especially if we have no more than 4 girls in the group, that should be enough time!

 

LOCATION: NYC

Kamila wrote:

And I cover the room cost up to $150, while most rooms in NYC are about $250, so anything over $150 would be split between the girls. If we have 5 girls, it would only be about $20 extra per person. Also, Michelle has a contact at one of the new super chic hotels in NYC so we are hoping to get a day-rate or some kind of deal which may be possible especialy if we are going to do the shoot during the week.

 

TIMING: Kristy.. I specifically asked about you since you are the soonest and she said it's definetely doable

Kamila wrote:

I actually do work on the sessions in order of who's getting married soonest or who needs the album finished soonest. Since the early spring is a far less busy time than the summer and fall, I would expect to be done with all the sessions in no more than a few weeks, so May is more than enough time.

 

DETAILS: It's the $400 package I listed on the first page of this thread to include:

Kamila wrote:

The $400 is correct, and it is about 6-8 outfit changes, about an hour or so photoshoot per girl.

 

DEPOSITS: i would prefer that everyone contact Kamila themselves to give her the deposits when we decide or I can set up a Paypal account

Kamila wrote:

I would need the deposits of $100 per person when we decide on a date, so that I can book the room and Michelle LoConte for makeup/hair.

 

So far, I have the following ladies interested (in order of when they posted)-

Myself

DanaC

Kristy621

I would rather do the March 6th as well for your reasons and Kamila's reasoning with the natural light etc..
I think that we need 3 people to be eligible for the group rate; and I know Kristy said that she can take a day off of work as well.

For those that can't - I will talk to her about setting up a Sat session.

Fabulous! So we have 3 of us which is enough to qualify for the group rate. Im going to give it another day or so to see if anyone else is interested and then I will give you all my PayPal information.

Thanks so much for looking into the location Kristy! I will also check with Kamila on her location as well - then we can all decide from there.

I can't do the 6th unless it was after 4 because I am a teacher and I can't take off. If anyone wants to do the 7th or a diffrent date I still want to do it

I completely understand. I have already asked Kamila if there is a second date or if she can do both Friday and Saturday.

Either way, I will post it on here (keep looking at this thread) - and then one of you ladies can pick up the coordination from there.

    • 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.
