Great review! Love the detail. I remember seeing your set up briefly that evening. I am working on my review....slowly, but congratulations! I must say that I had a chuckle to myself when you noted that you didn't know what to think about Natalia because we feel the same way. She was non-existant leading up to and directly following the wedding but pulled off exactly what I wanted during the wedding which makes it hard to complain, but our checkout was a nightmare with not getting our stuff back. Anyway I'm happy for you! Thanks for sharing!

I emailed the WC and she reserved tables for us on Wednesday night during the Enigma Show. That is the night of our rehearsal- so I thought we could have the rehearsal, go to dinner in the world cafe (free), and a finish the night at the show. What is Enigma Night and is it fun?

Another question...

 

How long is the reception? I think its supposed to be 4 hours. My ceremoney is at 6:00-6:30. Cocktail hour is from 6:30-7:30. Reception is from 7:30- 10:30, but that only give me a 3 hour reception! I'm paying for a 4 hours (i think), I read that the ballroom closes at 10:30, are they going to keep the ballroom open the extra hour? Should i email her?

I thought it was 4 hours as well, because I thought girls said they started dinner at 6:30 and it didn't end until 10:30. But I emailed Aurora and she said very matter of factly that the reception is ONLY 3 hours and after that I have to pay I think $15/per person/per hour (might be more). I can't find the email...but I'm pretty sure it was something outrageous. Especially since I've already booked a DJ Doremixx for 4 hours. What the heck is the point? So now I'm paying an extra hour for a DJ I'm not going to have? I just don't get it. They seem to really have a vendetta for brides getting married this year. First, no $20 menu, superfluous set-up costs, now having to pay an additional $1500 if I want to have a 4 hour reception, even though I'm already paying for the private event fee. Do they expect me to get married at 3pm and wait until 7:30pm to eat dinner? I was hoping 3pm ceremony, pictures, 5-6 cocktail hour, 6:30 dinner till 10:30. I felt like others had done this and it was included....not surprised though. Should have just had an at home wedding, seems like after all these nickel-and-dime fees it would have been exactly the same cost.

this is BS, I swear I read somewhere that the reception is 4 hours. I feel like everything is going to be rushed. My only other option is to bag the cocktail hour and just go to a bar for 1/2 hour and start the reception dinner at 7:00. It sucks cause because my package includes cocktail hour. Maybe I'll only have it for 1/2 hour and still take advantage of the food. I also might take my pictures before the wedding, so i'm not rushed. I really didnt want my soon to be hubby seeing me until I walked down, but pictures are super importent to me. Let me know some of your ideas to get around this.

Our wedding was at 5:00PM
Group photos immediately after
Cocktail was from 6:00 to 7:00PM Bride & Groom pics during
Reception from 7:00-10:45PM roughly

We completely missed our cocktail hour but the guests enjoyed it. We were actually late to the reception by 15 mins because of the photos... we did feel rushed with the photography, so did the photographer but we figured since we were doing a trash the dress the next day, it was ok. I personally wanted my groom to see my dress as I walked down the aisle, but if you don't mind seeing each other before, it might give you more of a relaxed time taking photos.

This is a question for any girls married recently: If dinner reception started at 6:30, did they let it continue until 10:30? Did you have to pay extra for this? Or did they really cut you off at 9:30?

 

Also, how long does it take overall to serve dinner? I want to have adequate time for dancing.

I did not feel as though our reception was rushed... not sure how other brides felt. I don't think that I've read any reviews saying so. Your DJ should be bringing some lighting, so even if you don't pay extra to continue the wait staff, maybe you can still continue your reception?

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
