@@chelscbs - I just sent you a link to our schedule. Our wedding is May 11, 2018 - so about 9 months out, so it is possible the schedule could change a bit, but this is a really good start.

I'm interested in hearing thoughts on welcome events (past & future brides)!

 

Our wedding is Friday. Most of our guests arrive on Wednesday, with about 20 arriving on Thursday. We were planning to use the semi-private dinner at Spoon for a Welcome Dinner on Thursday evening. but we have 60 guests and the maximum guests for that semi-private event is 50. (FYI - the maximum guests to keep the semi-private "free" is 40. but the event maximum is 50 ($25/pp after 40 guests)

 

We have a few ideas and I'd love some feedback/past experiences!

  1. host event on Thursday and limit the guests invited to 50 (exclude 10 people from the event) and use semi-private (pros - "free", cons - excludes some guests)
  2. host event on Wednesday, 20 guests don't arrive until Thurs, so the total would be 40 guests (pros - free, cons - excludes some guests)
  3. book a separate cocktail hour - I'm think the S'mores on the beach (pros - intimate and private, cons - adds extra $1000+)
  4. plan an informal gathering at one of the other bars - people can come and go as they please (pros - no extra costs, cons - doesn't feel very special)

any other ideas/thoughts/concerns? My FI thinks an informal meet up at one of the bars is "just fine". I lean towards a dinner on Wednesday + informal meeting on Thurs

 

THANK YOU!

If you were having less guests I would say the dinner would be fine but for the amount of guests your expecting I would say do something simple, causal. I did the S'mores party on the beach. I rented and amplifier so that I was able to play music. It began to rain so it was moved to the Mexican bar and it was perfect because the bar was right there lol. Drink and shots were flowing. Everyone laughing and taking and taking pics. It was perfect. I had my photographer come to my welcome mixer to capture those moments as well

ok - a moment of joy... my dress arrived!! (6 weeks early). I went shopping in June and after 5 stores, finally found what I think is the perfect dress for me. It's Mysteria, from More Lee's newest line and I love it. It's not quite as 'beachy' as I was initially looking for, but when I tried it on, I knew the search was over. I picked it up, and it's currently stored in our spare room, as I wait until January to start alterations. I may have to move it to my MOH's house - I keep wanting to re-try it on :)

 

Just wanted to share some exciting news!

Gorgeous! I just bought my dress this past weekend. Feels like a big one to get checked off. Your dress looks amazing on you and don't worry, my dress isn't as "beachy" as I originally anticipated either. I think as long as you feel good in it, and are able to move and dance, that's all that matters!

Has anyone planned a wedding over 100 people at the Sensatori? How did it go? I'm getting a lot of pushback from the staff about what venues I can pick and I'm getting frustrated. Looking to do both the ceremony and reception outside.

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
