HI @@pddcmc omg! you're day looked like it was just a dream. I have been looking for a resort for a while now (getting married in a Catholic church makes it pricey and hard to find a resort). I am looking into the Dreams Rivera Cancun, but it seems like it may be on the pricier side for my guests. May I ask if you got a group rate and what the cost was for your guests? sorry if this has already been mentioned in this thread.

 

Warmly,

CB

@@badgerbride - We  chose DRC because it wasn't overly pricey, but it also wasn't the least expensive resort. We wanted to chose a resort that had all that we wanted, as well as feeling comfortable inviting our guests to a resort that lived up to it's name and why it was a little on the higher side. We also sent out info, save the dates, prices, and invites VERY early so people could start saving and planning to attend. In reality, go with the resort that you and your hubby want because the guests that can make it and really want to, will find a way. You can't please everyone and you shouldn't sacrifice what you guys want.

 

We used a travel agent, so yes, our guests received a group rate.

Also, through our TA, hubby & I received a "refund" check of $3000. It was something like every 5th room, we received $100, so that was nice to look forward to... especially since he and I paid for the entire wedding ourselves. 

 

Hope this helps! Happy planning! & let me know if you have any other ??s

I had about 5.5" cut off and had it dyed a dark brown with dark red undertones that really shine in the sunlight :)

Thank you! Married life is great and we are having a lot of fun! 

 

I was very excited to come back and to share my photos with you guys (and future brides who may come across my planning journal)!

 

Choosing the "right" photographer was the most important part of planning, to me, because eventually, memories fade..I wanted the emotions to live on forever - and Del Sol did exactly that!

 

They are finalizing the rest of the photographs!!! YAAAYYYY!!! I have no idea how to chose which ones we display in the house! LOL

Your welcome :) There was a team of more than 5 artists who individually worked on each image, not to mention the communications and response time we try to offer, so thank you for your patience in the delivery and for trusting our creative vision senorita.  We love your images :)  

 

FUN idea BTW, first look w/out seeing each other and swapping a note...

Just to clarify, are you both each other's "My Pookie" or Tricia are you the only my pookie around :) Haha.  Too cute.

 

LOVE this reflection too, wowsa.

    • 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.
