I was all ready for the big Mexican feast but our wedding planner (in Ottawa) suggested to keep it simple since our guests will be eating amazing food all week that's already paid for! I appreciated that tip
How far along are you?
We have a few stragglers in the RSVP but not many left! 52 have booked so far
and they all came flooding at the last min. So get ready
The weather is also something I'm always reading about!! I'm with you on that one!!
Thank you! The rooftop ceremony sounds beautiful and I love the bonfire idea on the beach! We're having the ceremony on the beach and the reception at Plaza Zavaz. Are you using DJ All Music? That's who we hired for our DJ and yes, I hear they have props which is exciting lol. I totally agree with you about keeping the food simple. We're taking the same approach by having an informal cocktail hour, as I don't see the point in paying for a private cocktail hour when guests can just drink and mingle at one of the bars.
Right now I'm working on processional order and music for the ceremony. I'm using my iPod for this and lately I've been so nervous about mishaps happening and timing, etc. Once we receive all the RSVP's back then I'll start working on place cards, table numbers, seating chart, OOT bags and wedding favors.
That is so awesome you have 52 guests confirmed already. We were hoping for a much larger turnout but will probably end up with 50-60 guests, and I'm really happy with that! I'm sure your right about the RSVP's all flooding in at the last minute. I'm still waiting to hear back from 100 people. I just keep telling myself to breathe
