Hi ladies!!

I am a newbie on here just looking for some advice and tips for my wedding here end of April 2014!

I am so excited, have booked through thomson uk, was meant to be a beach wedding but have just found out they no longer marry on sand?!

Iv not had any correspondence with the WC from hotel as of yet but am

Starting to think about receptions, there are not many of us 14 in total I wanted a really private wedding, was thinking of a outdoor reception but unsure of prices ect! Also photographer prices??

for anyone who has got married already did any of you get a upgrade on your room for your wedding night? We have our 5 year old son aswel so couldn't upgrade our room as have to br 18+! But was hoping we may get a night or 2 in a upgraded room on wedding night!

Can't wait to share experiences and get talking to you all who also are planning to we'd here around the same time! Xx

Hi everyone!

I just booked my wedding at Riu Palace Peninsula for next August. Could anyone tell me about it? I loved the modern look inside and the pools looked nice! I hope I made the right decision. Please let me know...any advice on the glass room, dj, photographers, food, decorations, anything that could put my mind at ease a little bit ;)

Thank you!!

I have not been assigned a coordinator either...please let me know if you find out anything. Im wondering how much it is for each guest for the wedding part, what the glass room is like, if they will do a welcome cocktail hour for our guests the day they get down there, how the salon is...so many questions!! If anyone has answers please let me know!! Thank you! :)

We've FINALLY had our wedding date confirmed here for 12 May 2015 after booking with Thomsons in the UK a couple of months ago. I was a little worried because our ceremony isn't until 6pm but i didn't want to change it as the travel agent said we could lose the date and some of our family and friends have already booked up.

 

I was just wondering if other brides have been married here so late and how much time that left you for photographs. Did anyone decide to do photographs before the ceremony?

@@Jaycee272. We have booked here. I asked specifically for 3pm. When my dates got confirmed it had down 4pm instead. I'm little worried as I didn't want as late as that. I know it's only an hour a difference but I'd rather it was an hour sooner than afterwards. I'm waiting to hear back from co ordinator to find out why I can't have 3pm?

Let me know if you have any luck getting your time changed as I would like mine an hour earlier than I have been given too! Although when I questioned the travel agent I was told they just slot you in to the nearest time that you request as the minister who performs the ceremony has several weddings to do each day.

 

I'm trying not to worry about mine being to late, hopefully it will all be fine :-/

    • 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.
