They actually played one of the songs that played while guests were being seated, while we did our finger stamps, and the witnesses were signing the certificate-which I hadn't asked (or known to ask!) -but that actually turned out perfect!

They did great with the music- I was worried about that too. Also, they just played straight from the iPOD at the reception- it worked out really well-- you have no worries! :)
Thanks Shannon. Do you sign your certificate during the ceremony? Do you suggest I include a song for that with the CD? How long does it take?

I'm so thrilled there are so many new EDR brides just back to answer all of my insanely neurotic questions!!!!!

haha!! I think we all had the neurotic questions - just comes with the territory :)

the signing might have taken a whole minute - maybe! I didn't include a song for it and it was fine without one! there is a lot of sound coming from the ocean :)

I totally agree- I think like maybe it got through one verse- maybe!??! It certainly wasn't needed.... It was kinda random they started playing it-- it was completely fine (esp since I hadn't heard the song yet, on the system, since it played before I came out! :))- but not needed....

My one big advice would be to just enjoy the ceremony- I didn't think I'd be nervous -at all-- and I kinda freaked out. The ceremony is kinda blurry bc I was all crying and emotional (embarrassing now- blush2.gif)-- but I just wished I had taken a huge deep breath right before and enjoyed every second and let it sink in--- I told my DH we needed a "do-over" where I wasn't crying and all over the place! (preferably at EDR with a week long vacation along with it-hehe)

It's funny you wrote this, because my boss just gave me the same advice. She told me to just take my time, breathe, and try to make myself look at everyone as I walk down the aisle. A friend of ours who had a DW recently said she would have enjoyed hers more if she didn't worry as much about the details and just let the resort do their job - which they obviously seem to know how to do well.

Don't be embarrassed about crying, Shannon, it is such an emotional moment. It is very sweet actually.

We just went with our own music on Ipod & CD's. Our guest had alot of fun dancing with the music we selected. I didn't see anyone with live band for receptions while I was there.

I seen one at Tucanes & it looked beautiful. I almost wanted to switch mine to there. I think no matter where you have it the do a great job setting it up. Never seen Health bar set up but I did like that location too. Most of them give you privacy too. The only location I would say you would not get privacy at would be Gaviotos, know that I've been there. There usually are 10-20 guest sitting at the bar since the only bar area in casitas after swim ups close.

Shannon, we saw your ceremony, and you didn't look all emotional and freaked out, you were absolutely beautiful!! In the golf cart you looked a little nervous, but I couldn't tell once you stepped out! It was very sweet.

    • 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.
