Kailey2015

Hello!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My name is Kailey and I live in Ontario, Canada. I am planning a wedding in Punta Cana for May 2015. My fiancé and I have been together for four and a half years and are ready to start a new chapter in our lives! We both have large families and to stay budget-friendly and keep our wedding intimate and personal (neither of us are the centre of attention type) we thought a destination wedding would suit us perfectly - plus its a vacation at the same time!

 

I look forward to meeting some new people and reading reviews on anything and everything regarding a destination wedding!

I am thinking either the Majestic Colonial or Majestic Elegance! We are going to visit it this February to make sure it is the place for us!

Awesome! I haven't been to either of those resorts but they were at the top of my DR list. Ultimately we choose Cuba though.

If you're looking for a great Travel Agent in Canada ,the TA I used is amazing! She specializes in Destination Weddings and although shes in NS she books for people all over Canada. I don't know if you have one already or not or even thought about it, but I would highly recommend her. Shes been awesome, always answers my emails and shes good at getting in contact with the resort wedding coordinators. I am fairly certain she's even been to the Majestic resort. Anyhow let me know if you want her name and contact information!

Same here! Cuba is just so much cheaper... although I find from Ontario it depends, but from Halifax, its significantly cheaper to Cuba then DR or Mexico. PLus Cuba has amazing beaches and friendly people!

We got $990 for departing January 13th 2015..can't complain about that! Our photographers are from Halifax still waiting on their quote but I was told it can be any where from $100-300 cheaper, they pay their own way so I am glad these will be cheaper. I would have to agree about the beaches and people!

Wow that's a fantastic deal! We're paying $1178 tax incl. to Iberostar Laguna Azul which is the cheapest my TA has ever seen it she said. We haven't seen it even close to that low since we got our quote. Who are your photographers? I wish I had of known there were photographers in Halifax who pay their own way!

I thought that price was great too! $990 tax include out of Toronto people really can't complain about that!  

 

I am super picky about pictures because that's something that last forever and i love photography so everyone I was picking were $8,000+ and Greg said I was drunk to pay that plus there flight so I looked around and found this husband and wife team(they are currently living in Toronto till February) and they are about $1,100 and they pay their own way there. Plus as a gift for my parents we are giving them an hour photo shoot for $150.

Wow! I wish I had of known that! Their photos are amazing! We hired a private Cuban photographer (he's photos are great too) and we're paying $1100 as well! Had I known of them I would have hired them forsure! That's so cheap! I looked into one here who is amazing but it was going to be about $3000 and that was too much for me.

    • 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.
