Oh and Ann if you want to help out you sure can come be our DJ!!rockon.gif We can't afford one so we are renting the equipment.

Everything will work out so hang in there. Can you ask the parents for some money to help out until the wedding? Hopefully, you will get some bucks from that to help ease the financial situation for a bit.

Thanks girls! Thing have gotten worse but we are working through it. We need another $500 in work just to get up to code. Chris is out trying to get things figure out right now. Uugh.

Yes we sure can get money from his parents but his mom isn't the sweetest thing and may hold it against us later.

My FI gets crazy with projects! Swears and throws stuff! He is a little bit better if it is a project we work on together but I am so much calmer about stuff (well, that sort of stuff, I only freak about wedding stuff ; )) I now delegate him to moving stuff out of rooms so I can paint them...much easier than him breaking shit (esp. now that a lot of shit in the house is now my shit) because he spilled a little paint. He isn't allowed to do projects unless I'm around! Although he did surprise me by painting part of the front porch!

Sorry about the hijack there!

Stephanie, I was thinking about this while I was trying to sleep last night. What if you took out a little loan? Like maybe for a thousand or something? Maybe you could go through a credit union and find one with good rates. When i first moved on my own, i had nothing and had to get a loan to pay for my security deposit and rent. I know that it sucks to owe money on a loan but it sucks worse to owe money to people that hold it over your head. I will pray for you and your situation. Let us know if we can do anything for you! love, amanda

Stephanie, I'm so sorry to hear about this. Financial issues REALLY suck, I know. You two are in it together and no matter what happens you'll still have each other (sorry, is that sappy?). Let us know if we can help in any way!

aw stephanie, i'm sorry to hear this...isn't that always the casehuh.gif i agree about a loan - easier than having someone hold it over your head.

 

i also agree about ikea furniture...although our solution is for me to put it together while keith watches.popcorn.gif

    • 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.
