I mentioned that I was thinking of booking DJ Fradel a couple of months ago to Illeana, but she said to hold off booking him because she said sometimes he doesn't show up and sends an assistant instead.  Was this the case with you?  He's the most affordable compared to the other DJs mentioned on here so I'm not sure if I'm totally bothered that an assistant would come instead.

@@hp520 No he was there at my wedding from beginning to end, but that DID happen to a friend of mine from this forum who also used Illeana, so I'm sure that is what she is talking about. Apparently he had an emergency that night and had to leave, but didn't tell anyone, including Illeana, and had his asst sub in for him.... I'm not sure if he's done that with other brides and Illeana... I really liked him, I mean, you can ask him to put something in the contract that it has to be him, and if his asst comes instead, it's a lower price? You only pay him a deposit and I gave Illeana the balance to pay him the day of the wedding.

 

Did you ask if she liked his asst? I think my friend said he was fine, but b/c it was a last minute sub, he didnt' know the wedding party names and mis-pronounced them... :/

@ #1-5 Thank you so much!

 

We DID do a symbolic ceremony- our friend who introduced us "married" us. We got legally married in the states.

 

"Where in the world are you" map was a seating chart. Each table of 6 was named after a country, and on the map were tags pinned to a country, and each tag had 6 names on them. My MOH also made little luggages with luggage tags that had country names on them to clarify. We wanted a little travel them since it was a DW. :)

I asked the wedding coordinators at CD if I can have the foozeball table and such added for free while we are there for my wedding and they said they would put that in my contract for free! :)

 

Also - it is $30 for 1ltr of alcohol to bring it in

    • 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.
