wow, lil, thank you so much for taking the time to inform us all of the details of ur wedding : )
I wanted to know if still have the list of the music you gave the dj to play, the fast songs.
I have to do the same and thought I d check out ur list since u said everyone of ur guests were up dancing.
you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would love to see ur photos on facebook as well.
were the fountains in the gazebo turned on when u had ur ceremony?
I am having the priest at my wedding as well and hoping its not too hot for our guests as the catholic ceremony is long
the the priest speak english clearly? i heard he's canadian from quebec so he might have had a french accent, as long as he is understandable : )
Im not hiring a photographer but Im thinking twice about that coz i know how important photos are.
How much did you pay extra for the premium bar liquor choice?
Ugh -- I wrote the whole response and it never posted (except the quote)
Here is the fast dance song list -- the DJ stuck with the newer songs 90% of the time (which I preferred). The bridal party walked in to Raise Your Glass by Pink and B&G walked in to Crazy in Love by Beyonce -- both good songs that should be added to the list. I bolded the songs he played - I cannot remember all of them though. I bolded the I bolded

No idea about the fountains -- never paid attention to that detail. The ceremony was 20-25 minutes long for us -- we had 1 reading, homily, rings, kiss, sign marriage certificate -- done! The priest does speak English but it's not "perfect" English as we know it in the States -- there is definitely an accent. You can understand what he is saying!
I would 100% get a photographer. It is worth the money (which isn't that much I don't think) and you will have beautiful pictures! When you see the pics from my wedding you will not think twice about getting a photographer anymore -- you will be booking one right away!
The premium liquor was $15 per person. We had 60 adults who were drinking which is $900 and we said no way! Our "compromise" with Carolina was that she would provide the base price of $400 (I think 25 adults were included) worth of premium liquor and when they ran out (which it didn't and we are big drinkers -- Irish and Greek families) the bartenders would switch to the regular liquor service (which is included in the package).
Everyone -- keep firing away at the questions while everything is fresh in my mind!
