Thanks @@ACJCWed for the info.

This is the first time I'm hearing about it being due this soon. My TA has been telling me she would send it 1-2 weeks before all along.

 

Zocalo beach is by the beach BBQ and the wedding arch. Beach building has little bigger space. Other than that there is not much difference.

@@carrieandsam - Thanks!  Is Zocalo Beach level or is it on some type of a hill?  I'm becoming increasingly concerned that my grandma will fall on the beach - and ideally, we'd like to have an ad hoc dance party around our fire pit/tiki torches without any spills or drama....

Hello ladies! Ok, so we are doing our cocktail hour and reception at Plaza Zavas. Has anyone strung lights in the gazeebo? If so, how many strings of lights did you need? I want to use the larger bulb lights like the ones pictured here. But not sure how many I would need. Please Help!

6 strands of 24-25 ft.

Katie has these. One strand goes on one pole

If she only has the 16ft you can always use 12strands if she only has 16ft

@@carrieandsam Yeah I'm probably getting them from her. But I wanted to string them from above. Not on the poles. I wanted to string the bulb lights and maybe a few of the stars Katy also has.

Oic. If you want that then if you are stringing them from each pole then her 16ft should work just fine. So 6 of the 16ft should work. I know @@LaurenR use white paper picado and string them the way you want your lights and those were 18ft and it had some give. Just my opinion I would go with warm glow to give a happy intimate feel.

I am struggling with flowers. The bouquets seem very expensive but maybe that's a normal price for flowers??? I have heard ppl mention real feel flowers but I have never seen them in real life. Are they good? Cheaper? Could I also use as centerpieces without it looking too "cheap"?

Thanks all!

@@amyzig2 Yed, real touch flowers look real and are pretty. Also, much less expensive than real flowers. Check out Katy she also has those flowers for rent. I am doing a Bojo Chic theme so I am going with lanterns, candles and maybe a few shells in a vase with sand. Haven't decided on flowers. But if I do get some sort of flower it will be a small arrangement of maybe like 4 or 5 roses next to lantern.

I'm not doing much flowers for that reason @@amyzig2 they just seem very expensive.  I'm going with vases and candles instead for centerpeices and just some arrangements for the ceremony that I'm planning on reusing at the reception.

    • 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!
