@@Jacquelyn05 thank you! We did the Mexican Family Style and it was insanely delicious. Highly recommend it.

 

We flew in a DJ from home (DJ Magnificent - based out of Cincinnati, OH). He was AWESOME.

 

@@KimberlyD thank you!!! Don't stress! Just try to stay organized, have visuals to show the onsite team and ENJOY the whole process! It really wasn't until I met with the onsite team that I felt good about everything.

@@Jacquelyn05 The bridesmaid dresses are from Weddington Way, and are part of their exclusive dress collection (which have pockets!). I gave them the option of purchasing any short chiffon style in that navy blue color/collection or buying a long version and just having it tailored shorter (same price if it was going to be tailored anyway). A friend who recently got married recommended Weddington Way - especially when you have bridesmaids that live in various cities. It worked out really well for our group.

 

Their shoes are from ALDO and their earrings are from ForTheMaids on Etsy.

@@KimberlyD We paid $500 total for the setup fee. Which by the time we were onsite, I was OK with because I just wanted to be done. I will note that we were told onsite that it had to be paid in cash - Ana (our offsite coordinator) never mentioned that, so I was ticked off about that.

 

Marvin's quotes sound very reasonable. My bouquet was in that range and I will tell you that it was HUGE (and heavy lol) and insanely beautiful. You could always ask him about suggestions for lower cost alternatives for some of the flowers - but he quoted me the same and I was very very happy. And everything was still way less than going through Lomas.

@@jhercule You looked gorgeous! It's good to see real life shots of the a wedding there. Did your DJ bring their own equipment or did you rent it from EDR? I'm scared to go with an EDR DJ. I don't want my music to suck!

@@MalaikaandMike awww thank you!! We rented the equipment through Lomas so that our DJ wouldn't have to worry about traveling with his and going through customs. He's a friend, so we also wanted him to enjoy his time vs. worrying about his stuff. He was able to test out the equipment a few hours before the reception, so he could become familiar with it.

@@jhercule thanks for all of the tips and updates!! I stalked your wedding photos and they are beautiful!! 

 

My fiancé and I will be down there next Monday to do a site visit. I think I'll feel better about everything once I can see the resort in person. I'm excited about everything, except I'm worried about the decor for the reception area. I have this vision in my head of how I want it to look. I'm already planning on using Katy to rent from as well as bring down my own stuff. I told myself when I got engaged I wouldn't worry about the details and here I am stressing about the details :-)

 

Does anyone have any info on possibly renting tables/chairs from an outside vendor? I'd love to find some wood tables that don't require any table cloths. 

 

I will post any info I learn from our site visit next Monday! Also, we have been working with Paulina as our WC and she seems to be on top of things/responsive so far, just in case anyone wanted a recommendation.

 

Happy planning guys!

Brides, I am hopeful you can help me. I am getting married in November, I am honestly starting to feel stressed! Our wedding will be held at Generations (will have children attending). I haven't decided if I was going to bring my own DJ from home (Virginia) or if I would be able to find a DJ in Mexico to use. I am looking for a DJ that plays more Hip - Hop/ R & B - any suggestions?

    • 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.
