    I did the one long table, I liked it, we only had about 25 people so I wasn't sure how it would look with just 3 tables setup.

    I liked the long table, but they put so much stuff on it that it gets really crowded. I think each person has 3 glasses in the table setting and then if you order a drink you end up with 4, it was a little crazy!

    Also, by using the long table I was able to get away with just small centerpieces throughout the table, rather than having to haul something down or pay extra for something.

    The canopy thing is just one piece, but you might think it's more than one because of the pillars there are a lot of those.

      Wow great bargain! What site?

          hi, could you tell me where you guys got your sashes online from im looking for pink satin ones. Thanks!!!

          also, what are you guys doing for the repection order of events. I was thinking of doing : walk in song and announcement/introduction by our Friend/MC, then our slow dance, followed by cake cutting then dinner. then have speeches throughout? not sure what the best way is- what are your guys thoughts

          thanks girls! :)

            CRAP! I just emailed today. I hadn't even thought about this. I assumed included in the package meant it was taken care of! What time did you end up deciding on for your ceremony?

                Hi girlies....

                Ive been away but I just wanted to pop in and post some responses I got from Claudia regarding questions I had for her... enjoy!

                Thank you for responding.

                Where can I have the flowers delivered the day of my wedding for my centerpieces?

                Near the area where the reception will be held at.

                I need to see kids menu.

                Kids menu is:

                Hamburguer with fries

                Chicken nuggets with fires

                Piszza & pasta

                Mini kebobs with vegetables


                Are you only giving me 2 centerpieces? I'm not using the makeup, hair, 1 boutonniere, and photographer. I did the math and it doesn't sound correct.

                We can’t give the same value of items not used same as a la carte prices, this is a package and prices are lower in order you have a good deal on a full package, all I can do is to give 3 centerpieces, please confirm in order to make the changes in the contract

                Also ladies, they give you a piece for your table during the ceremony and a piece for your reception table... she has a few of them for you to pick from.

                If I can upload ill post it.

                  Hi Jenn,

                  How are you? I have just realised you are getting married the day I arrive at Dreams. Have you decided on most things now? I keep changing my mind, it is such a nightmare!!!! Hopefully I will arrive at Dreams before you get married so I can see you.

                      I think the price that I quoted in my last post was a sale item...oops! But they have really great prices even when there isnt a sale. The website is weddinglinensdirect.com. Sorry I was off on the price!
