  1. Sorry, not sure why it's not showing up. I'll try again later.
  2. Hello Ladies! Here's my review of my wedding! Arrival: We arrived with a group of 26 people on Monday and were told that our rooms were not ready yet. This was around 7pm, guests were tired and hungry and grumpy. Apparently there was a big staff change recently, the reception staff was new and didn't know what was going on. Everything got resolved that night, but even then there were still some problems with the rooms. The next day, they apologized to all of us and upgraded everyone to the Preferred club, upgraded my husband and I to the honeymoon suite, and asked if there was anything
  3. Hey ladies, especially those who have been married already. Do you know how long it takes to walk from wherever you are starting to the gazebo? I'm trying to get an idea of how much song time I have. Thanks!
  4. Congrats DRwedgal!!! Thanks so much for the review, I'm booked with Michael as well and now I'm so excited to work with him. I'm disappointed to hear that the ball was dropped so many times, it sounds like they are overwhelmed with weddings and not giving enough attention to each wedding Thanks for the heads up and tips!
  5. I was told that you would have to have a buffet dinner if you have more than 50 because they will need to bring in more staff to cater to your guests. I originally had 50+ people coming, but things have changed and I'm down to ~40. Don't stress, wait and see how many respond, you don't have to make a decision about your dinner right away.
  6. Hey Carly, Check out this link http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/63688/diy-program-fans/20#post_1639363 Mine will look very similar to this:
  7. Hi Ladies, I haven't been on here in awhile, busy with preparations, 4 months to go!! I will be having a symbolic ceremony at Dreams, because I heard that if the judge does not come on time (which is often the case) the WC marries you, and when the judge shows up, he just signs the papers with you. Often times behind closed doors. So I didn't see the point of paying so much $, and going through so much trouble just to basically have a symbolic ceremony. I looked at the programs for other weddings I have been to and put together what I wanted the WC to say, I also asked her (Gara)
  8. I keep going back and forth on whether or not to have a cocktail hour. Any past brides have a cocktail hour? was it worth it?
  9. You can definitely save a lot of money by having a legal ceremony at home. Im going to have a simple legal ceremony and not tell anyone but immediately family.
  10. http://www.papercircle.ca/ I found their prices a lot cheaper than http://www.paper-garden.ca for cardstock.
  11. Who is your wc? I'm working with Gara and she has been pretty good at responding back to me. I once got a reply on the same day! I'm sure they are just giving priority to the upcoming weddings. I have found a lot of answers to my questions on this site and through other brides so feel free to ask @GLAM, sorry to hear that Gara wasn't as organized as you would have liked, it's making me nervous! I'm probably going to ask my brothers gf to be my day-of person to give me some piece of mind.
  12. Sorry ladies, It's too big. Send me your email if you want me to forward it to you.
  13. June this year? When I booked my Nov.2011 wedding date back in January, I also booked the location of my reception with my WC. Apparently it's first come first serve. I THINK the huppa is $300 extra for the beach ceremony, don't quote me on this though.
  14. Hi I have an email from the WC with all the spa prices. PM your email if you' d like and I can forward it to you.
  15. I'm having my reception at the Himitsu as well, and will be having 40-50 guests. Though I'm not sure how many sit at each table, I know the table is standard size. 72¨diameter and 34¨ height. So I'm guessing 8-10. I have heard that the 2 and 3 pm time slot can get pretty hot, and the 6pm time slot doesn't leave much time for pictures after.
  16. Hello ladies, I'm not exactly sure how to word this properly...Does anyone know what goes on during the ceremony? I will be having a symbolic ceremony, and I know you can incorporate anything you want, but what will the role of the WC be? What does she say during the ceremony exactly?
  17. Welljen, you look stunning! Is your FI's suit linen? Where did you get it from if you don't mind me asking.
  18. Hello ladies! Does anyone know where I can find cardstock paper (for cheap if possible!)? I checked Staples, but they don't have the colour I'm looking for. I found some on a website but unfortunately they don't ship to Canada
  19. I wanted to hang paper lanterns on the terrace as well, but after seeing pictures of the himitsu terrace it doesn't look like there is room. I'm trying to figure out to decorate. This is the best picture I have of the himitsu terrace, so you can see what you have to work with. I'm sorry it's so big! I don't know how to make it smaller
  20. I'm hoping to use the same chair sashes for ceremony and reception. I was hoping they would iron them, but rolling them seems like a good idea!
  21. These look so great! I'm ordering from them also, I'm so excited!
