Herbie - Love your rings. Yours is like mine set with diamonds, as FI says i do love a bit of bling ha ha... cant wait till we have ours at home :o) i will just look at it all day ha ha

 

2bewed2011 - welcome along :o) Herbie's hotel was one on our short list. Lovely hotel. Along with Dreams Riviera Cancun but after researching most of the hotels in Mexico we went for the Barcelo Maya Palace. We had looked at alot of hotels (and i mean me my BM and FI for about 5months debating each of them along the Riviera Maya, lol) but just fell in love with the look of the Palace and the good reviews etc. It just had everything we were looking for really. Something for everyone and the gazebo is lush and we just cant wait to get married there :o) You will know when you've found "the one" although it is defo the hardest part, chosing the hotel... good luck with your search

We spent about 9 months deciding where to get married..... this is definatly the hardest part..... we chose Riu Palace Riviera Maya because it was the 1st place that we both fell in love with everything.... others we looked at stephen loved bits that i liked and i loved bits that he liked.... then we came across the Riu Palace and "WHAM" we both fell in love with it :-)

Its perfect for us and our familys and kid friendly to which we needed :-)

Michelle is right, when you find the one you will know.... bit like the perfect dress really!!!! :-) x

Hi 2beWed2011, welcome to the forum, as the other ladies have said choosing the hotel is the hardest part.  I'm not getting married until July 2012 and I thought i had my hotel sorted with The Gran Caribe Real as it had really good reviews and I loved the Gazebo, however after researching it more it just wasn't for me even though it had excellent reviews, I looked at travellers pictures on trip advisor and didn't like the location of the gazebo or where the kids club was located as well as large groups of american college kids going there every july, which would be fine normally but not on my wedding week, so i was back to square one. 

 

I can honestly say i have probably looked into EVERY hotel along the Cancun strip and have finally settled on Dreams Cancun.  First and foremost it has a beautiful clifftop Gazebo, it is an excellent resort for kids, good variety of restaurants, surrounded by 3 beaches, all the reviews i have read say that the staff go above and beyond and most importantly every wedding review that i've read on here all the brides have said that they had the wedding of their dreams.

 

Good luck with choosing, you will get a lot of information on this forum, let us know which one you go with.

Hi Ladies

 

Well i thought i had managed to steal a bargain with the bridesmaids shoes however it's ended in disappointment and i am back to square 1!!!!

 

1 pair of the shoes arrived but they were marked with some kind of red ink and the rest of the order barratts were unable to fulfil so i have had to organise a full refund and start searching again i am gutted as they were perfect and exactly what i was looking for but hey ho back to the drawing board.

 

Charmaine....The shoes are really pretty will definatly have a look at that site, not sure what the boys are wearing as shaun wants to choose it himself!! last time we spoke they was talk about white linen suits but still no decision made will keep you posted though, what about you have you made any decisions?

 

It's scary to think i am now only 10 months away aarrgghhhhhh thats going to whizz by whoooo

Thanks Ladies, you are all so helpful and friendly! I have decided not to rush into anything too quickly but at the same time I need to get the invites out for people to book days off.

i'm getting married in July 2012 at Dreams Cancun.  Are you all booked up, if so which Travel Agent did you book through?
 

 

Herbie - The necklaces are so pretty your BM will love them.  Your rings are very similiar to ones that me and Wayne have picked out, very nice indeed.

Welcome along all the new b2b who I havent spoken to yet!!  Enjoy the early planning - it only gets more stressful the closer you get :-))))

 

Love those flip flops char!

 

Had my hen party on Saturday nite - i am far to old to stay out until 4.30 - i couldnt move on Sunday!  When shopping with BMs on Monday and got them a pashmina each and flower for their hair; yesterday got my underwear and my final dress alteration underway. 

 

FIs stag next weekend, Christmas shopping to do and then all of the sudden it will be time for us to depart - arrrggghhh - 7 weeks on Friday.  Gonna have to do a final list tonight and work out how much money I need to find in 7 weeks - we have been so lucky though we havent used our credit cards once - but have had no money to ourselves for months - but I'm sure I wont regret it  x

    • 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.
