Another Dreams Tulum Bride contacted me on our wedding website to let me know that her wedding will be the exact same day as ours. As well as in the Chapel at 4pm an hour after our 3pm ceremony??

Not sure if she is on this site or what? but I dont know how to feel about ithuh.gif

I dont want to have our wedding rushed, b/c there is another wedding only an hour after ours... I was hoping to do cocktails outside of the chapel. Im assuming that wont be possible now, and our set up, probably going to get ripped down right after to set up for her day... I was really hoping to take a few pics in there before having everything come down...

I dont know?

How would you feelhuh.gif

also... I already contacted Sandra/ Landy about this, and said it wasnt a problem, they are more than one wedding co ordinator and can handle it...
I would be mad. Period. wtf.gif
BUT...we all knew this was a possibility when we signed up for a wedding at DT. I'm just hoping any other weddings on my day are earlier so I won't have to run into the other bride (s).
Sunbride is right. Ceremonies usually don't take but 20 minutes so I believe you will have plenty of time to do all the things you want to (except maybe the cocktail hour). AND THINK ABOUT THE POSITIVE THINGS.
By the time the "other" bride has her ceremony...it will have been a been there done that situation. Not to steal her thunder but you will have been the first, the one your guests/hotel guests see first and will be in awe. When people see the "other" bride it won't be as special because they would have already seen you!
Also, since she contacted you...maybe you guys can work together. Ask her to push back her ceremony by 30 minutes. It's a stretch, I know but who knows....maybe she is concerned about the time frame too and would agree to it. ALSO, you guys may want to go in on the ceremony decorations together so you could split the cost. Say...agree on using the same colors of flowers (maybe just all white) that once you use...you can leave behind for her ceremony. Her guests/ your guests won't know. And you can save $$$. Don't know if you've seen it but the chapel is beautiful. You don't need much to decorate it. I'm getting married there too.
And lastly, I know the WC won't rush your wedding. They wouldn't do it. They'd rather let the other ceremony start a little later than usual (sometimes that happens anyway, Mexico time remember?!) than to rush YOU.
Hope this helps. I know how you feel. I'm still waiting to hear if anyone else is getting married on my day too.

AMY!

 

I get there Nov. 25 and will leave on Dec. 2 so YES we can definitely get together so I can fill you in on what happened. I have some more questions so I'll send you a private message soon so we could maybe coordinate other things?!?

Don't get upset about the wedding happening right after yours...keep in mind that the ceremony only takes about 10 minutes - so that gives you plenty of time to take pics and move on to another location in this beautiful resort - it will work out nice for you - you will just have pics from other places around. monkey.gif

Dreamstbride, it will all work out. I totally understand how frustrating it was to hear it and how it sounds like it will mess everything up, but it won't. Like the other brides are saying, you will have sufficient time, and talking to the other bride about moving hers back a little might help. Also, the whole sharing the cost and increase decore would be awesome too!

Lastly, once you have been in there for 20 minutes at 3 pm, you will not want to be hanging out too much longer. It gets really really got in there, only one small window, so you will not want to spend too much time in there after the ceremoy.

I keep telling myself to relax and enjoy and not worry about this whole wedding thing. Whatever happens, Landy will make sure all of our weddings are just as we asked and even if something doesn't go exactly as planned, we will be the only ones that will know. Our guests won't, so, we just gotta go with it and enjoy it.

Thank you ladies! I knew you girls could calm me down! hahaha! :)

 

A lot of you are saying I will have plenty of time, so Im keeping my fingers crossed and hoping the timing all works out! As for decor, your probably right! If I talk to her there is a chance we could work something out! :) yay! Im getting excited again! no more nervous wreck!

 

Thanks again ladies! :)

 

One last quick question... Did they have a docking station for your i-pod to connect to the sound system? or is it easier to just burn a Cd?

Are you asking about the docking station for the ceremony or the reception?

I know they can set up a docking station where you will have your reception but not sure if they will set it up for you at the chapel.

The wedding guide says they take care of setting up a CD player during your ceremony and even offer a CD in case you forget to bring your own wedding music.

Can anyone tell me how many weddings they hold per day. What are the charges to rent one of the restaurants? If you don't care about having the whole restaurant to yourself will they let you just make a group reservation at one of the a la cartes?

Have you tried reading other posts on this thread?! All the info you are looking for has been discussed here. Also, look at the wedding guide another bride posted on here a couple of weeks ago.
btw...3 weddings max per day, $750 to rent restaurants (but it varies on your package, # of guests) and you CAN make a reservation at the a la carte restaurants only if you have fewer than 20 guests.

It was mainly for the reception... I know that during the ceremony they provide you with a cd player... I was hpoing to have music for the reception... but I didnt want to burn a cd with ALL the songs I have on my ipod... Just was hoping to make things easier on myself.... hahaha!!! :) :) :)

    • 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.
