OMG ... i want to cry

Recommended Posts

I would go for sunday also, that way if guests cant stay a long time, it would be one day less off work for them. I dont know just a thought.

Don't get too upset... just think about it. When you are on a vacation, do you even know what day it is or does every day seem like a Saturday? You'll be drinking and relaxing and having a good time so it doesn't matter. As far as your guests go, I think it would be most thoughtful to have it on a Sun to help with days off of work, but like the other girls said... for DWs anything goes!

I don't think it really matters what day you have it because people are going to be there for at least a few days, and they'll plan their vacation accordingly, it honestly wouldn't bother me either way.

I think as long as you give guests enough time, any day of the week will work! That said, my first choice would be Sunday (maybe because I am getting married on a sunday):) I know I am repeating the other girls, but are you open to other hotels or times of year? It seems like August is your target month, but maybe moving it a month before/after might help with dates.

I vote for Sunday as well, since technically its part of the weekend. Guests would probably be able to take less time off from work that way.

 

About your date. I am "tentatively" an 08.08.08 bride myself. Believe me, I know exactly how you feel!!!! I have been trying to find a place that is affordable for my guests as well as fits in with our budget for that timeframe.

 

Make sure you asks whatever resorts you are looking at if there is some kind of waiting list, just in case of a cancellation or something. I am still trying to decide if I want to change the date (I really dont want to cry.gif ) But its getting down to crunch time, so I am going to have to make a move by the end of the year if I don't hear back from any of the resorts we wanted.

 

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you guys will find a resort you love, and soon elefant.gif

My wedding is on a Monday. We are flying in on Saturday and my guests are leaving on Wednesday. It wasn't a problem for them as they are using this as their vacation, which they would have taken the days off. I am only having 7 guests, so didnt have that many people to worry about. Good luck.

Sorry they didn't have your date available! My cousin had her DW on a Monday and it was fantastic. Everyone is on vacation anyway so it all works out!

ladies... thank you so much fo all your support and input. I think that we are going to try and go with the 17th (SUNDAY) ... we were thinking of actually changing resorts.

 

We were thinking of going from Dreams, Cancun , Mexico to Dreams, Punta CAna, Dominican Republic. Thing is i'm dominican and if i hold the wedding in Punta Cana i would have to invite all of my DOminican reletaives, which would in turn, double my guest list. Not only that, but the vision for my wedding would have to be ltered to accomadate the language barrier between the guests. Just doing pro's and con's right now.

 

I'll keep you all posted. <3

 

thanks again

    • 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.
