I don't know Jilly- I needed to ask her those questions after I saw the gorgeous picture. It will be a lot more for the set up... lights under tables, flags, dance floor, but it looked wonderful... Do I have to decide soon? :P
We had not planned to have anything in the sand...

I just received a revised contract. There were a few items missed... not surprised since we have had so many email exchanges.

 

I didn't realize plain white organza was so much!

All but the front two pillars is $255.

That setup is sooo beautiful, but I didn't think about having to pay for all that stuff!

I know the white organza is ridiculous. I just sent my contract back today with a lot of details and told her the things I didn't want and what I wanted to substitute. I'll let you guys know what she says. Her answers might reflect in her tip, lol!

For the beach reception, we don't need the white flags, but they look nice. The lights under the tables definitely make it cozy. I don't think we need coloured napkins. We don't know yet if we will do it, need to calculate what it might be. I was surprised on the pricing for the votives and vases and they charge a setup fee if you bring your own. Oh well, I cannot worry too much.

I did want to see the contract revised so we can get those things ironed out now. She did send me several emails today and 5 or 6 attachments :)

Let us know how it goes :)

ummm, there's a setup fee if you bring your own table decor? please tell me you're joking! I'm going to pretend I didn't just read that. I didn't tell her we had stuff for the tables, but I just kind of assumed it wouldn't be a big deal to set up, we don't have that much. Heck, I'll go down and set it up myself so that I know its done the way I want it! This will be me in another week girl_werewolf.gif

Pretend you didn't this either :)

 

4. Is there any decor for the cocktail hour?

 

just cocktail tables and votive caudle holders one each table

 

 

If I bring my own, are there any costs associated with the setup or is it included in the Ultimate Dreams package?

 

will have a set up fee…

 

 

 

5. Approximately how many square votives would be needed for the long dinner setup for 50 people?

 

@ 4-6 per table

 

 

 

If you provide the votives, what would the cost be?

$ 15 usd per table…

 

6. Is the bar open during the dinner time, or is it closed for a period of time? If so, how long is it closed?

 

is available during dinner…

 

7. Is it possible to have a chocolate and vanilla cake together, different layers?

 

yes…

 

8. Since the cigar roller is per consumption, do you know the average cost per cigar? (My finace really wants this).

 

@ 10-20 usd each…

Hey ladies!

I'm pretty sure Kimiko said that she was NOT charged for the organza, that it was part of the "additional decorations" included in the ultimate package. I'll have to go back and double check on that though.

We're still debating between the garden area and the beach. I wasn't even considering the beach, until I saw that pic with all the under table lighting. I'm still concerned about the sand and wind combination, and the fact that it would be a little hike through the sand and up some stairs to the bathroom. And if I recall correctly, it's just a one-person bathroom. Which would be a problem for 90+ guests. The garden area has the benefit of being near the Tower Lobby bathrooms and bar. Although Daniella said for the # of guests we are expecting, they would set up a private bar right in the garden (otherwise the poor waiters might loose their minds).

Ok I found it

 

Here is what I asked Kimiko:

"I loved the white organza w/o the ivy! Were you charged for this, or was it part of the "additional gazebo decorations" included in the Ultimate ($2400) package?"

 

And her response:

No, I was really happy to discover that this was a part of the Ultimate Package - No additional charge. Yeah! :-)

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
