Great thread Sunbride! I don't know how you make the time to do all this but it's nice to have somebody organizing it all!!!
Here's some additional info on my wedding details -just in case I can help a Dreams Bride.....
I'll also try to post some additional pics of my wedding (things like my ceremony set up etc as it's not in the wedding guide). I've been meaning to do it for a while but I'm in the middle of a move to a different province, so my life has been a bit of a zoo for the last several months. Username:
donandcorri Date & Time:
November 23, 2007 Ceremony 3:00pm, Cocktails 5:00pm Dinner/Reception 6:00pm Wedding package:
Ultimate Wedding extras (and cost charged):
I only requested some extra flowers & was not charged for any of them. 2 extra boutonnieres (sp), 1 BM bouquet & 1 Hair Flower (got 2). I did notice that I didn't get the flower arrangment on the table at the ceremony so maybe they substituted without really discussing it with me. I was fine with it so whatever! Type of ceremony:
Sandra & Landy (I communicated with both prior to the wedding, dealt with Sandra @ the resort & both assisted me on the wedding day - I was a lucky girl & was the only wedding on that day!) Number of guests:
17 Ceremony location:
Gazebo next to Seaside Grill Reception location:
Wine Cellar in Portofino (was actually supposed to be on the beach beside Seaside Grill but weather didnâ€™t cooperate â€“ we hadnâ€™t discussed a backup plan & I was extremely impressed with how quickly they rearranged everything) Photographer:
resort photographer 36 5x7 pics in an album free with package + 350$ for CD of all 200 Videographer:

You can schedule the resort photographer to shoot for as long as you need but I believe I was entitled to approx 2 hours with the Ultimate package & would have had to pay extra for over & above that. You don't actually choose how many pictures you get until after the wedding. Our photos were ready for viewing the next morning and we selected & paid for them then. We ended up only getting the prints that were included in our package & then just paid for the CD with all shots.
I did request some getting ready shots but ended up with only a few so you'll need to be very specific about your expectations as the photographer only showed up maybe 10-15 minutes before I was to walk down the aisle.
