Just a warning for you ladies....

 

Be careful about sending your credit card info your miami contacts.  I had to fax my over 2 weeks ago to pay for the wedding ceremony package.  Joannis said she didn't get all of the pages (even though my fax confirmation showed that all were delivered) and the missing pages were the ones with our credit card info.  I ended up having to resend it.  Then last Friday we got a call from the credit card company that someone had tried to use our card in Florida.  The credit card company fixed everything, but pissed doesn't even describe how I felt.  I called and tried to get a supervisor, but she wasn't available.  I did get her contact info and was told to send over a copy of the info we had on the charges in an email.  I did that and copied Joannis and my sales rep, Michelle Farinas.  I haven't heard back from Palace Resorts yet, but I will let you know what happens.

 

Just be careful because clearly there's someone in that office that's not an honest person.  Lucky for us, our credit card company caught everything the day that happened and that they cancelled the charges right away.

Oh wow.  Thanks for posting this.  I'll be sure to keep my eye on my statements.  I think anything like that is acceptable grounds for full refunds and cancellation. =/  That terrible.

I don't think we'd have enough for a private reception.  Even if we did, we have like ... maybe 5 dancer-types there LOL

Aww, ok.  Well, that is actually good because it will dave you a ton of money.  Just for decor for 5 tables, I am spending way more than I need to :-)

It crazy that you said this! When i first booked our wedding we had to pay a balance because we picked the amythest package. I faxed all my info including my credit card to pay for the balance and a week later i had over $6000 in charges taken from my account!!!!! i called and flipped out on the miami office since it was the only place i had used that card since its only used for certain bills. The office assured me that they were not blame but destroyed any card or personal info after that. I then changed my card and had everything reported. I did get all my money back but I always that it was very sketchy that that happened and refuse to give them any card info again and will try to do everything through pay pal or something next time. .... something is very sketchy though...

I have finally heard from who I was told by Michelle Farinas was my wedding planner giselle only after sending her a very demanding email and pointing out to her that she has ignored my past emails. She responded by saying she was forwarding my email to my wedding planner Juana moreira does anyone have her? If so how is she? How many wedding planners am I going to have? It seems the more people that we have Planning our wedding the more confusing it will become.

Since we started our planning I have had 5 and the 5th was my on-site coordinator Zaray. She's been AMAZING, a little slow but has answered every one of my questions. As we can see on here there have been a lot of April/May brides at MP this year. We are all set for our meeting when we get there and will finalize the last minute things. 

 

Ladies remember Miami coordinators don't do a whole lot when your wedding is a long time off. Most of us that started planning early last year or even last fall didn't get a lot of help from them. It's not even guaranteed that you are going to have your locations reserved until you start working with your on-site coordinator which they say is 90 days out but most of us know that it's closer to 60 or even less. They all take their sweet times getting back to you. We must remember we aren't their only customers. They do have a lot more brides for a lot more resorts and not just MP. While it's extremely frustrating not getting answers for weeks or even months in my case, we need to remember that all the other recent brides have said once they get to the resort all worries were out the window and all went very well. My advice is work on your DIY projects as much as you can and send emails with lots of questions and patiently wait the best you can. It's all going to come together but unlike planning a wedding at home and months in advance Palace Resorts just don't work that way unfortunately. The one thing I have learned is being a little pushy doesn't work, in fact it slows the process down especially if your wedding is over 6 months away.

    • 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.
