    We didn't pay our deposit yet. I didn't even get bank info yet either.

    Has anyone booked and paid deposit for El Bistro? He sent me bank info, but I don't get how you are supposed to make a paypal payment with the info he provided.

                Wow Fancy That you looked amazing on your wedding day!!  Thanks for posting your pics.

                 

                Congrats Natalie!  Can't wait to hear all about your big day!

                 

                Thanks everyone for the input on the aisle runner.

                 

                As far as photographers, I booked Gonzalo Nunez.  I can't seem to find many reviews on him, but based on his website, blog and prices I couldn't resist.

                He has a couple of different packages to choose from.  I picked a package that includes 10 hours on your wedding day and a TTD session the next day (or whenever you want it).  We are having our wedding on a Friday and doing the TTD on Sunday.  We can sleep in the day after our wedding that way and be rested up for the TTD.  The package costs $2000.  I couldn't find anyone else that beat that price for that many hours and a TTD.  Just let me know if you need his contact info.  He is very quick and responsive and we are now facebook friends...lol

                He said he doesn't need a room, so I'm not sure yet about the vendor fee / how I'm going to work that out...guess I'll decide later.

                 

                :)

                  When you were at Maria Marie's for your rehearsal dinner were they able to put you in an area that was somewhat more private? I know it's mainly an open area but I was hoping they had an alcove or a section that was kinda away from the crowd?

                   

                  How was the food? Was it heavy?

                   

                  I just did our total budget and our grand total is 15k!! I was hoping to keep it around 12-13k but I wouldn't change my choices.

                   

                  So now I'm just trying to be more vigilant on our expenses.

                   

                  Is anyone doing a small outting or dinner for just family & bridal party?

                    Hey it never hurts to ask! Yes, open bar anywhere, everywhere! :) There was never a problem with this. I had heard sometimes it wasn't an open bar but it was! I had a 'signature drink' served during the cocktail reception, but people could still order other drinks.

                    Did they have any specialty cocktails or just an open bar?

                     




                    Ahhhh yay!!! I'm glad you liked them and YES do a TTD! It's so fun and definitely worth it!

                      For our dinner they didn't have us scheduled, but managed to put us somewhat to ourselves in the back corner. We had 4 long tables close together and it worked out perfectly. It wasn't incredibly crowded so I didn't even notice the others. The food was very good, I always went for the seafood! I was too busy talking/taking pictures/enjoying things to eat that much, but I don't remember it being incredibly heavy.
