Ditto! She was great.

 

I heard the sax at another wedding when we were walking by, it was also nice. I preferred the violin.

Hey everyone!  

Does anyone know about the bride and groom getting their hotel stay for free with a certain amount of guests staying at hotel?  My travel agent mentioned something about it but wasn't quite sure.

Also, for those of you who had a symbolic wedding, did you write what your officiant said or did they have to say something specific?  Did you just let them do their thing?

Thanks!!!

I do not know about the free stay so I cannot comment on that.  As for the officiant question, we had a symbolic ceremony and we just had him do his own reading.  It was beautiful and we are very happy with how it turned out.  He did ask us if we wanted to say something special to one another and we did.

Same as Brenners, we let the officiant do his own thing and he did great.

We did tell our w/c in our meeting that we were NOT doing our own vows, but during the ceremony the JOP handed the microphone to my husband and asked him to say something to me.

We were both caught off guard, and were laughing because nothing was prepared. The guests clearly picked up on this and were laughing too. It was a nice light moment in the ceremony, and turned into such a special moment for us as well, because my husband just looked me in the eye and spoke from his heart. It was very sweet.

I that the free stay depends on who you book with.  We had one free trip through Air Canada vacations with every 26 people booked.

Ours was the same as Brenners and Joanne.  We were also surprised by the "say something" thing. The husband is pretty shy, and was really caught off guard. He said "I love you...that pretty much sums it up". It was special, the best man used that as the opener to his speech that night.

Thanks for the music feedback, we decided to go with the keyboard and bass...here's hoping its great!

 

If anyone is interested and it hasn't already been posted here recently I have the menu options available this year! It appears it is similar to what other ladies have been saying they had at their weddings, but in case you were interested I thought I'd offer!
