Here's a long but "pay attention" Update BangHead.gif

 

My oh my, we fly out tomorrow.....YAY!!!  With 5 bags in tow, this Bride-to-be is ready to go, go, go.  But before I do, I wanted to simply advise to "Keep all of your receipts EVERY TIME you pay for your gown.  That leads to my good day turned into a semi nightmare... 

 

We fly out tomorrow the 17th so today was filled with:

1) Take my mom grocery shopping as she will house sit when my her and my son returns on the 22nd.  7am

2) Had to sign off on my employees time card (electronically) 8:30-9:00@

3) Dentist Appt :915@

4) Pick up my puppy at home and take him to the Pet Hotels & Villas after he sun bathed for 10 minutes in the back @10:45

Running early.. YAY.....

 

4) this was to be item 5 At the Spa for wax, mani, & pedi..done at 1

5) This was to be item 6.. dress pick-up.... at 1:40

        Now this leads to some wtf.gifmoments followed by someone is going to get fencing.gif

Went in, happy, excited etc....

1 person got my sash, then got my dress.. showed me how to hang it, etc. Then it was time to sign the paper saying that I picked up my dress.  In bright yellow highlights with red it said balance $523.. it can't be as I paid my balance in full on 3/26/12 (receipt in my green folder at home-I never toss items until every thing is complete.)

 

The same lady I gave payment to, DENIED me doing so. I asked to use the computer to bring up my account.  She refused, down stairs I go where Debbie reluctantly put me on a computer.  With tears in my eyes, blurry from trying to hold them back... Ha I couldn't remember my log-on, nor do I know what credit card I used...  I went to my car and balled my eyes out (really I know I paid, have my receipt this heffers are testing me and not doing anything about it.)  I went back in, paid and said I will call you when I get home.

 

I didn't even take my dress out of the car before I grabbed my green folder, pulled my receipt and called.  Guess What? They applied my payment to someone else.  This was discovered after I requested that she go line by line... when there was a "button added over top of a zipper charge for $100, some other charge for $550 etc.. I caught it... she asked me for the ticket number and put me on hold.  Came back and said OMG I am so sorry please fax this over and we will take care of it.  Now ladies, I work in NJ and live in Philly.  I just came from Jersey and hour away to pick up my dress.. do you think I was going to go out of my way to fax them a piece of paper.. NADA.  I took pictures and emailed them.

 

No later than 2 minutes after that was done, they were calling to APOLOGIZE, WE ARE SO SORRY, PLEASE HAVE A GOOD WEDDING ETC.. and that the manager will refund me on Wednesday when he is in. 

 

Woosah.... all of them better be lucky that I will be in Mexico on Wednesday.  However; this isn't over!!  Upon my return I will be speaking with the manager to request that my alterations that was had be refunded in its entirety.  That is the least they can do after I spent $$$. 

 

Keep your receipts and check them after you leave!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
