That sounds like a great idea! 

Did you get a DJ for your reception? We are going with DJ Doremixx because his reviews are so good. I just have to get my FI to pick out his attire and we are all set!

We did the same thing with our ipod and it was great! Had 24 people too!

 

Do you and your FI know that men have to wear long pants for dinners at the resorts? I don't think he will be allowed to wear shorts at your reception :(

We did do OOT bags and they went over great! HOWEVER, if I were to do it again I would just buy one or two items like say the little sunscreen and aloe, tie them together with some raffia and attatch them to the info cards(flight info, resort dress code, local things to do, time of welcome dinner, etc) we handed out a few weeks before flying down.  I think a lot of the stuff never got used and I would have loved to put that money towards something like what angi111111 did!

We are doing a Catamaran Snorkeling trip the day before the wedding. I ordered some cute beach themed photo albums and a candle for each couple to receive at the welcome dinner. Less to carry and worry about when we get there...My FI was all for this idea instead of bags ;) so, it made him Happy!

We went with DJ Doremixx as well, but I was sad to find out he was not on our list of
approved vendors" so we have to pay the $800 fee to have him at our reception. It turned out though that he was still much cheaper than the "approved vendors", even after we considered the additional fee!

Did anyone on this thread choose tulle for the gazebo and chairs? Was is worth it?

I choose blue tulle to decorate the gazebo and decided to go with uncovered chairs... I looked at a lot of pictures and got some other girl advice and decided to spent the $$$ on other things instead of chair covers....we really want the beach feel so I decided against a runner and I am doing just rose petals on the sand and two flower corsages on the gazebo with a white linen table cloth on the small table under the gazebo with matching flower arrangement and sand ceremony vases. The WC said they will move the flowers to the cocktail and dinner area after ceremony....

    • 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.
