With some of our guests not eating red meat, some not liking chicken, etc. we thought it would be hard to only serve one main dish, so we decided to have the guests order what they want and paid $25pp. Also since Chilis only serves beer & wine, we paid $9pp to have an open bar.

Gotcha! Maybe I misunderstood Ael. We plan on paying the extra $25 per person, and am hoping that everyone can just order off the menu. I sent her another email just to confirm.

P.S.- Your pictures are beautiful! :)

Katie- March 26th is coming right up! When are you heading to Mexico?? Also how many guests are you having; just wondering how far off you were from the under 27 number that they allow to have at the earlier dinner seating.

We leave for Mexico next Saturday, the 20th! I can't wait! And we actually have around 75 guests...so I was definitely surprised when Ael told me our dinner was at 7pm!

Yay Lisa, Kimmy and Sammysgirl!!! I'm excited for you all---- it sounds like everything is really coming together.

 

I'm a little sad and frustrated about the dinner thing. I thought you ordered off of the menu no matter what? Does this depend on group size? We're not having the private reception- it will be a semi private dinner....I have another question- if you don't mind!! We'll prob have about 45 people. Does this mean that we will have to pay the full amount for the bigger package or do you know if they prorate it pp?

 

As a lot of others have said on this thread- it is SO frustrating how much nickeling and diming goes on when it's supposed to be an AI. FI is TOTALLY against having the full bar because of this- and I'm afraid it will be tacky if we don't. He insists that our friends will be cool about it- but I'm not so sure....Sorry for the vent!

wow I had no idea about $25 per person charge. I knew about the $9 per persson open bar thingy.

 

I will also have btw 50 - 55 ppl and a lot are vegetarians and a lot aren't and some keeps halal/kosher so no pork products so I guess I will also have to pay this $25 per person too!

This $25 charge is def new, b/c the past brides haven't mentioned it. I believe you only have to pay the $25 if you are having your Private reception at Chili's. If you have your private reception at Chili's I believe you can have a buffet and you don't have to pay more. So if you have less than 60 people you will be at Botogo and do not have to pay this.. that's my understanding anyway.

I am so glad that you got the 7:00 pm time! I hope that the same happens to me even though I am not thrilled about the $25 extra per person but oh well!

    • 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!
