    I’m a bit confused as well. We have over 50 people and we are booked for a private dance/cocktail party but when I asked about a private poolside dinner I was ONLY given the option for the theme dinners.  I really hope that they are still offering the additional private meals because there is a huge price increase if you have to opt for a theme dinner.     A nice mixed grill dinner at $20 a person sounds way more affordable then a themed BBQ dinner at $48 a person.

    The mixed grill was what we went with... but I had to pry it out of her that it was an option.  I would straight up ask her if the mixed grill is still an option.


    When I did, then she went on to say how it was served with plastic silverware and paper plates.  I said I didn't care, that was fine for our group.  However, it was the normal china that we were served on with regular silverware, so that was just ridiculous.  But I really had to push for the mixed grill option.

      Hello everyone,

       

      I too have been reading all the posts and can't thank you all enough for the questions and reply's. It's funny how much direction I've been getting from you all and hadn't a clue I had even needed it. My wedding is May 12/12 and I have emailed Maria twice with no reply. But... I know what I want b/c of all of you. So thank you. Does anyone have any good sites of where to buy a nice bracelet or shoes? I've read the two right shoe post so I guess not there. Or any shops here in Edmonton that you would suggest that don't cost a fortune? I've also been looking for nice name tags for the dinner seating. Anyone have any suggestions?

       

      Hope your all enjoying this special time of planning.

       

      Oh and can you get the gold status at the Coba?

        Congrats! My wedding date is May 10th and I’m from Edmonton as well.

         

        Etsy has a lot of great items and usually the seller you’re dealing with can get them to you right away. I would suggest going to local bridal stores and find something you like and order it online. Off the top of my head I can’t think of any local jewelry stores, of course! I got my shoes at Army & Navy on Whyte Ave. They're probably starting to stock spring/summer items so you might have some luck there in the shoe department. 

         

        Happy Planning!

            What kind of shoes would past brides recommend for the hammocks location? If I wear wedgy flip flops, will I fall on my face walking through the sand?

            Thanks!

            I highly recommend, no shoes. 

             

            Flip flops will toss sand up your skirt... and you'll probably be sweating and then you'll have sand stuck to your legs and that's not fun.

            Wedges aren't really stable while walking down the hill on uneven and shifting sand.

            Heels... well... that's just plain silly :)

             

            So I would recommend no shoes.  And then have a cute pair of flip flops or wedge heels to wear after the ceremony during portraits, dinner, and dancing.

              Is the all inclusive indicated by cards or wristbands?

               

              If it is wristbands then I presume everyone can take them off on the day of the wedding for the photos.

                They will cut them off at the front desk for the day. I suggest holding leaving keeping them just incase they ask when you go to get new ones put on.

                  everyone in my group took them off that morning, then after the reception had them put back on so we could all go to the bar!
