    Lady Di,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have been talking it over with my parents and fiance, and we are still deciding what to do...we are now considering a private reception at the Royal. We talked about movin the wedding to another location. We looked at the Eco Park, and I fell in love, but the prices are crazy. Everything is kinda up in the air for now.

      To all....

      When you pick the food you are picking for every guest...right? What about picky eaters. I have a friend who will only eat chicken as a meat, and does not like seafood. We also have a guest who is allergic to shellfish. All the meals but the beef have some kind of seafood, or seafood stuffing..lol

      We went with the Luxury package and went with Ivan at Doremixx for our DJ. He was awesome (and provided the lit up dance floor).

      Hope this helps!
      Yes please post pictures of the food options.

      TW when did you get your quote for your wedding. My original quote said 4 hours and then you have to pay more per guest per hour. When did this 3 hour reception come into effect?

        I got the quote in May 09. If you look at the package information on the Royal's website, it says 3hrs for a 35 person reception under the Luxury Package.

        We paid more per guest per hour after our 3hr reception was up.

        If you were quoted 4hrs, make sure you bring that email with you!

          How much did you have to pay for the dance floor? I had read that one girl got it for free, but Ivan is asking for $500. Is that normal?
          I saw the $500 on Ivan's pricing list. We didn't ask for the lit-up dance floor and didn't pay for it, but we got it anyways.

                We also went with a vegetarian option for one of our guests.

                She had the tomato salad with grilled zucchini, the cream of spinach soup, the linguini with dried tomato sauce and for dessert, she had the same as the other guests (strawberry pie).
