Yay another Canadian bride in November!! Looks like November is a popular month I guess! I'm not sure whether I'm going to need paper lanterns because I would like to have our reception at the EL Patio restaurant or at the Seaside Grill. I'm not sure if they will allow private receptions at El Patio so I'm thinking that it will likely be at the Seaside Grill. I just wish the resort would let us book it in advance. If the reception is at the Seaside Grill, we likely won't need lanterns because the ceilings look like they are quite high so I was thinking of doing the fabric draping with lights.
I feel like I still have some unanswered questions, so I'm hoping this webinar on Saturday will really help me out. Yesterday I thought of something that I think I'm going to stick to for decor. I'm getting married in the chapel so I'm planning on making DIY pomanders and bringing them with me to hang on the church pews....and then reusing them to put on top of vases with nice crystal type beads in the base of the vase as centrepieces for my reception. The only thing standing in the way of getting started is that I don't really have colours yet because my bridesmaids won't be ordering their dresses until April 22 (because of scheduling conflicts) so the dresses they choose will depend on the colours for the wedding. I'm hoping to have them wear something on the brighter side like some type of coral or fuschia. Also, I think I'll also have tealight candles surrounding the centerpieces. I'm not sure if I should bring real tealights or battery operated ones because of the wind. As for chair sashes...they are really pretty but I have a lot of guests and am not yet sure I want to spend money and time on them. Does anyone know what you call those bamboo-like chairs and how much they cost? I think that getting those might create a nice colour contrast without having to do any extra work.
We're expecting about 60 guests. What about you guys?

I would also be happy to share decorations! We will be arriving at the DT on Nov 21 but I haven't fully decided on what decorations I am going to be bringing. I plan so far on bringin fuchsia and orange paper lanterns, fuchsia chair sashes (which i plan on setting up myself instead of paying the $3 per chair set up price) and i'm sure other stuff as well! Still need something an idea for centerpieces though without them costing a fortune!
Let me know!
