Ok...so our friends wedding is back on. I guess she moved back in yesterday and they are trying to get everything rescheduled for this saturday. I absolutely cant believe it. Some people cancelled the trip (the ones with insurance) and everyone scheduled excursions for that day. Aghhhhhhh!!

Yes we are still going. We had planned on doing a bunch of stuff on Nassau and paradise island though. It is going to be a HUGE mess! I can see if they did this 6 months ago and went to counseling but hello its this week! How can they think that people will take them seriously?

Oy, that's the worst situation for the couple and the guests! If there wasn't travelor's insurance, no choice but to make the best of it.

 

I once went to a wedding shower of a friend who broke up with her fi one week later and cancelled the wedding... The weird part was that she spent the gift card and then I got a "thank you" card for her gift 6 mos. later... wtf?? It was awkward. Always awkward when the couple splits.

so I just got back from the wedding. they did go through with it. They totally had to change everything. they got married in a lounge on the ship which lasted about 10 minutes. the bride didnt have any friends or family there. it was only his family and friends. It was a really weird ceremony and you could feel the awkwardness. The bride made a comment about them getting counseling so I just hope they really try to make it work. On top of the crazy stuff with the wedding, the weather was HORRIBLE (maybe a high of 65 in the bahamas), I got seasick from the ridiculous rocking of the boat from the storms, and one of the couples that went with us got in a huge fight in the middle of the night (we were in a room next to them) and we had to call security. wow. I am happy to be home.

OMG, I just responded to the original quote. This could be very stressful for the guest. I know it's all about the couple on their day, but what about the guest. wewwwww!

    • 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.
