Yoazul...I actually got the idea from past brides (thanks!!!)...they made a GREAT point...everyone will be eating & drinking so well all week long that the meal isn't really going to be all that important, and the cheap meal will taste just as good anyway! This way you can save the money and invest it in extras instead! We saved ourselves over $2000 so now we're going with a mariachi band and I might order it for extra time!

I too, was not told about the $12 meals because I was given the 2008 Event Banquet Forms. I found out about the $12 meals on this website and then got the information from Tiffany. I do have a question about the $12 meal. Tiffany told me that we were not able to mix and match the 2 menus. She said we had to have exactly what the $12 menu said but I hear that people are able to mix and match. Did someone get the okay from Tiffany about that? I might need to be emailing her, if so. There were certain things that I liked about both.

 

Also, did we ever hear if you need to pay first before you are guaranteed the location of your reception. Has anyone been guaranteed their location yet? I have emailed Tiffany, but am waiting to hear back.

Thanks for the input girls, it's really helping!
I am so confused, I would think the Plaza deck would be for the larger parties and vice versa. I was confirmed for the deck but would probably rather do Zocolo. I didn't realize that my party was too small for Zocolo....I guess I'll just wait til we get down there.

We picked one of the set menus and did not mix and match. Although we do have vegetarians that they can substitute for and it's the same price, which I thought was weird.

I just made my final payment and the Plaza deck was confirmed on the same day, it was "approved" through management.

Thank you Beachbride!! I was thinking if I have a party over 40 ppl, I would have to go for BBQ buffet, and it's great to see these group menu options :)

So pissed off right now!

We sent out invites in June with a travel date of may 16-23, then in August the travel company informed us it was now changed to May 17-24. Now after all deposits and many paid in full, dates are changed again to May 16-23. After people have made travel plans, booked sitters, booked off work!

So because of it we lost 10 people. (now only 42 attending)Our travel agent said i am lucky because the group traveling to Cuba in April was changed by 3 days, and the resort has no other openings for them to get married. Has anyone else experienced this?

I wanted to cry ....we have a baby and the groom Grandmother coming with us (she is over 80) - also they sold out the original date of my wedding so I had to move it to the easter week. I am just trying to be Zen about it .... Good luck

    • 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!
