My TA told me that the chair and table covers were covered with the private reception at the Plaza.

I got the same email. For private events white chair covers and white table clothes are provided. However if you want chair sashes or table runners that is extra. I don't want sashes, but we plan on doing the table runners. I have been quoted $7/runner, with your choice of color. (mind you they don't seem to have samples, so I guess you just hope it's the right color)

I think you can bring your own runners too

We also decided to go with the free wedding pkg even though our TA has a special agreement with the resort to provide another pkg that almost exactly met our needs for 2600.  However, in the end when I teased out the things that I didn't want and things that I wanted - it worked out that the free wedding pkg with upgraged room and our add ons was the same value as the basic junior suite combined the pkg my TA offered.  We decided the room upgrade was important to us.  Best thing I would suggest is to look at each pkg critically - assign value to each item you want (costs from the lomas website); determine if some valueless hold value (i.e,. nice to have vs have to have).  Then look at the lomas site to see what extra stuff you want that the pkg don't provide and add everything up to compare. 

Sky wedding - I thought about it too - but in the end I chose the beach because we've always wanted a true beachfront wedding.

I have attached a document with all the private reception sites.

We just booked our wedding for 3/20/10!  I've been reading this board and have found lots of great information, so thanks!  I was just curious, did most of you pick one of the wedding packages (pearl, silver, etc) or did you just pick the free package and then add on the things you need?  Also, how did you choose between the beach or sky location?  I keep going back and forth...decision decisions and I'm just getting started.

 

Oh, and one more....I see talk about different locations for welcome dinners, cocktail parties, etc.  What are considered the "most desirable" spots?

 

Thanks ladies!  I look forward to learning from your experiences!

What were you thinking about centrepieces?  I was thinking about ordering the large vases with flowers and using them by the chairs for the ceremony and then having them transferred to the tables at the private reception afterwards - but wondering if it may be too tall???

You can bring whatever you want. There is a fee for setup though (not much though). My concern was the price per runner here was already $5/runner, and then I still have to pack them and bring them down. I also looking in the gazebo fabric, they require 2 sheer fabric pieces each: 12m x 1 1/2m. Well the cost to rent is $100 for white, and the cost was $8/m here, so I would maybe save $20, but have to travel with it and what do I do with it after....Certain things I will buy, others I'll just rent from Lomas.

 Not quite sure yet. We are vacationing next week with friends, but I think one day we'll spend in Cancun shopping. Going to see what available. Something simple though. The main thing I am bringing down are the laterns, about 25-30, in white, turquoise and green.

 

Are you talking about the vases on the Lomas site? I think the ones that stand on the ground would likely be too tall for a table, but not sure we're thinking about the same ones?

Yes - the ones on the lomas site that stand on the ground.  I don't mind the look of tall centrepieces but not sure if it would be overkill.  I'll think I will email them to determine the height - overall and vase alone.

Thats great you have a chance to go to Cancun before the wedding.  Let me know if you see any nice maracas and handmade tequila shot glasses for good prices if you happen to walk by some.   Those were two things we were probably going to pick up for the wedding while there so we can give away something local.

Where are you holding your reception?

I haven't come across many pictures of Zavaz Plaza Gazebo decorated.  Has anyone else?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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!
