Hi Diamondpooch,
That' so exciting that you have everything done!
Are you bringing your centerpieces? I'm doing the Strawberry Passion package which only inlcudes one centerpiece so I'm unsure what I'm doing yet. I don't know if it would be cheeper me bringing stuff or just paying extra down there.

I am bringing my own centerpieces. I'm doing the Strawberry Passion as well, and the only "included" centerpieces I know of are the fruit and candle ones which I didn't really like in the pictures I've seen. So, instead of spending a bunch of money on real flower centerpieces that are going to last four hours, I decided to make and bring down my own centerpieces. I ordered fabric from ebay (navy and white damask pattern ) and I'm making runners with a navy border on top of the provided white table cloth. I'm using 20" tall square vases filled with lemons with small bloomed yellow flowers sticking out of the top. Two per table....one on each end. In between I'm alternating a stand alone lemon with a square candle holder with a candle inside. I'm just bringing them down in an extra suitcase. I don't want to chance shipping them down and getting them confiscated by customs. The end product will SORT OF look like this: just with the navy underneath. Oh, also I will have navy chair bows.

This looks beautiful!
Xhail hasn't sent me any pictures for centerpiece options. She keeps telling me that I have lots of time...but really I don't. If I don't like what they have then I need to bring something.

If anyone out there has pictures of the outdoor reception areas, can you please send them my way...... I need to decide on something but I haven't seen anything yet. If this has been in a past post sorry....I haven't been on here much in the past month.....work is keeping me busy....not to mention my 16mth old daughter who is full of energy at 6am.

Cheers!

Well... I put my date on hold at the end of May (I am getting married in February). Then I confirmed after all the bookings were done in July. However, while February is high travel season, it doesn't seem to be high wedding season, so in your case as you are getting married in May I would put your date on hold sooner, like a year ahead. That way you are sure to get the date you want. :) All that being said, I wouldn't worry about it. I think they do up to 6 weddings a day.

Alright thanks, we want to book everything like very very soon, we've set our wedding out so far because of our schedules and in the months of crunch time I won't have any time to do anything so I'm trying to book everything over a year out. I just can't get Xhail to respond back.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
