(we offered a pork dish and mahi-mahi). And don't let the WC tell you otherwise...mine was also giving me grieve, but I just told her this is how is would be done! LOL

 

Also I will message you later , and we'll talk dinner date! :) I ordered all the LED's and batteries from dealextreme.com Took about 2-3 weeks for it to arrive, so I should order them now to allow some time for the delivery. It was the cheapest spot we found that deliveried to Canada.

We had a group rate for our guests, and it was for one week. We did pay for his trip (flight and hotel), but it was an all inclusive package...so a little different coming from Canada than the UK. It might be a lot more for you to bring a local photographer from the UK, since I would expect you would have pay for the flight and hotel. But perhaps look into a photographer to share with other brides that will be there the same time. You might find that if you can share the expense it becomes worthwhile. (especailly if the other brides are coming from Canada or the US, the flights will be cheaper)

Another sky deck wedding! Yay, I thought I was the only one! How are you doing your sheers? I've seen them done so many different ways. I'm not doing the big flower arrangements, just a bouquet on the sand ceremony table and then 4 pomanders.

If you would like, I would be more than happy to sell to you at a lower price for your wedding. This way you know they will work and be great for Zavas plaza, I will show you pictures of what ours looks like when we get married.

 

let me know what you think :)

I'm off to my bachelorette party in Vegas this weekend, yeah! It's also my birthday on Friday, the big 2-9 ;).

We've got 11 girls and 3 suites at the signature suites at MGM. We're getting there early on Fri for some pool time, going out to Marquee Friday night, pool day Saturday and then the show "Absinthe" on Saturday night. I can't wait, it should be a blast! I'll post a couple pics when I get back!!!!! This is the first official wedding "event" - it's getting to be so real!!!

I think we ended up using 20 laterns at the gazebo. So you would need 20 batteries (I would order a few extra, just in case some don't work...I think we had one dud in about 45), and 60 LED's (3 LEDs for each battery). Here's the best photo I have of our gazebo:

HI Ladies!! For those of you who are getting married on the SKY deck....do they allow colored sheers up there??? One of the package things my WC sent said they do not do colored sheers up there, but I have seen plenty of wedding pics (on here too) with them.  Thanks ladies!!!

They do, they're just a little more expensive. $100 per white, $150 per color. I have 2 on my detail sheet (one white, one gray) but I'm not 100% confirmed on it...

Any past Zavas Plaza brides have a diagram of the area to plot where DJ goes, cake table, head table, etc? I've asked my WC but you know how that goes...we're also having our cocktail hour right around there so I want to see how that flows as well...thanks!

I am sure you can have colored sheets. But they do cost more.

Thanks. We ordered them from an online store: http://www.asianideas.com/  There are lots of great places to order from...this had the best prices for shipping to Canada.

I am doing the sheers criss crossed across the top, just ivory and I'm doing 2 pink lilies hanging corsage. We are then going to use those as centerpieces for the cake table and the sweetheart table. My mom is adding gold beading to the sheer's, so they are going to look beautiful I can't wait.

 

I just got the rope lighting in yesterday and they look awesome, there going to be easy to travel with also! Ya, I ordered the 12" rope lighting - they just told me the poles were right under 10"

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • 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.
