Expect not so great reviews from me on the resort's wedding department.

 

Wish me luck! (If I wasn't bloated from the heat and drinks, maybe I could get married in my white bikini? Maybe not...)

Hello Ladies! 

 

Our day went very very well.  A few glitches in that my make-up lady ran 1/2 hour late so 2 of us were not able to get our make-up done.  So, I decided that those that lived far away will get there make-up done and they looked great.  I was a little disappointed as I wanted to try wedding dresses on looking sharp but hey Life Happens.

1st appointment was great as we were the first persons in the store.  They knew the dress I wanted since they ordered it in for me(Romona Keveza) as it was traveling with the trunk shows.   Boy oy boy I was in love... and was ready to purchase this but was quickly reminded out the 2:30 appointment that we had. ;-( 

 

From there we picked up my future daughter aka step daughter (I don't like calling children step).  From there we went to try on the BM dresses (ButterByNadia) and they were so happy..we

occupied the owners time along with her Mother-in-law for about 1 1/2 hr which resulted in a 20% discount.  SWEETwoot.gif

 

After this 2 persons had to leave us (1BM had to work and Ms. Ellen my make-up lady had a wedding to do). 

 

 We went to Houlihann's in NJ for a quick bit and drink and made it t our 2nd appt at 2:40.  For all of my PA, NJ, NY, DE brides you may want to check out Bridal Gardens and ask for MaryEllen she is freaking amazing to say the least.  We were taken as soon as we got in the door, and she greeted all of my bridesmaids, pulled in extra chairs and immediately started in on My vision and concept. I'm very specific but she brought dresses besides the ones that I wanted to try on that were DYNAMIC.  In addition, she was willing to match the price of the store that I visited earlier... so it pays to write the name of the previous stores that you visited.  THEY Paid attention to that!!

 

We spent about 2 hours there...and I have 2 top number 1's.  One of the one's that I picked prior to going in which is a Lazaro dress and the other MaryEllen brought out for me which is a Pronovias.  My MOH and BM took sneak pictures every time that she walked out of the room which was great but the quality isn't the best since it was done in a rush...anyway the Lazaro trunk show is in July so I will go back then to get 20%off...  and meet the designer himself.  Love it.

 

After that we headed to Bonefish Grill in Deptford which is always great. There we headed back to my house to go through some inspiration photos and to go over  the day while we drank cocktails. 

 

I'm beyond excited as I will go back and purchase "The One" in July.  The best part about it all, was that my future daughter shed the first tears which then had me tearing up. 

 

So to end this post..We have found our dresses!!!! 

 

 Have a great rest of your weekend.

Hey Ess,

 

Of course you can crash the more the "marrier"!  What worries you about promotion?

On a sidenote: I'm concerned about the promotion as well. Has anyone else signed a group agreement with a TA?

Wow this sounds so fabulous! My girls and I are going shopping this coming weekend so we are super excited! I don't think I will find "the one" but I am hoping to at least get an idea of what I want and to narrow down the choices! I had a couples shower yesterday and it went great! I am so excited for you and maybe we can get a pic msnparty.gif

I am kind of nervous about dress shopping.  We are going next weekend as well, I am going with FI's mom and sister.  We don't have a bridal party yet, but I want to ask his sister, as she is incredibly important to me and our relationship did NOT start out the best.  It was way more than rocky, so I got her a card and I want to give it to her on Saturday when we go dress shopping.

sdamian1,

 

I will definitely post a picture after I purchase the dress.  Since I have 2 top number 1's I am going to take the time to sleep on it, mull over the sneak pictures that I have and place myself walking down the ailse. I have until July 31st (the next trunk show) to make up my mind and to loose a few pounds.  Then I'll place a picture up.

 

Merrylee,  that's an awesome idea and she will be more than appreciative of this gesture.  If I may suggest, go to Michaels, AC Moore etc.. and get a little gable box, put some colorful tissue paper (of your wedding colors in their), a ring pop, your card, and some other cute little non-expensive items that you would want her to have.  Trying on dresses was fun but you sure do get hot taking on, off etc.  Defintiely take a a few pictures of things that you like.

I am in your boat Future Mrs. Hammer!   We haven't set the date yet but we are looking at Nov 2012, so there is no way my guests will book in time.  My fingers are crossed that the promotion stays the same or gets better!

 

aholen- I hope they found your dress and everything worked out for you!!!!!!

Thanks for being so welcoming! I think I've confused myself regarding the promotion. We have signed a group agreement with our TA and the promotion is explicitly stated in the contract and our guests are starting to pay the room deposits. Does this mean that they are suddenly ineligible for the promotion if they do not pay the remaining balance in full by 10.31.11?

I'm sure you will be fine since you have it in writing.  I'm sure all my guests won't book by the booking deadline, but I have it in an email my WC in Miami saying all my guests will have the promotion so if they try not to give it to me I can show them that!

I agree I think since it is in your contract you won't miss out, and if they do change the promotion then your guests I believe are entitled to the comparable package for that new promotion if that makes sense.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
