As far as the dinner, plated vs. buffet, even though you had more than 40 people you could have had it plated?
Sorry my answer was confusing. You're right she only gave us the buffet option.

The gazebo/barracuda bar are the windest areas at dreams. I think there is always a breeze at least. For us Wednesday and Thursday were super windy (I couldn't have worn a veil) but luckily Friday and Saturday (wedding) were like half as windy and my veil stayed on. It is a windy time of year. However it's nice because the resort is not overflowing with kids (because schools in) and it isn't super duper hot yet. It rained Sunday evening very hard and sprinkled Monday evening. Since I was afraid of the wind and heat, Josh and I had a "first look" moment with the photog in the garden by the adult pool prior to going to the gazebo to get wind blown. Hope that helps.


Thanks Tifuhhknee and nairay! I want to give back a little of what BDW gave to me! Congrats on being DPA brides. You are going to love it!

Ok thanks! I really don't want more than 40 for many reasons this is one of them now. I don't know what I want for the meal just yet but I don't want the decision made for me by my count!

I remember being really concerned about how many guests we were inviting because we didn't want to wind up having issues with our reception options. In the end we'd invited about 60 people in total and wound up with 33 so we were lucky to be under the 40 limit because our meal was AMAZING! We had lots of compliments all around about the food so it's definitely worth it!

What did you choose for the meal? I asked Jacy for more menu options but what she sent me doesn't seem like what I've read other's have had on here.

The menu I had included about 6-7 set meal options that each had some type of soup, salad, main course and dessert. We did a little bit of mix & match between a couple and wound up with Minestrone soup, Caprese salad (my absolute favourite!!!), Beef Medallions (which were amazing tasting steaks which is saying a lot coming from a group of folks who are used to Alberta Beef!!) and Brownies for dessert (which are totally NOT your cookie pan, bake sale kind.... these things were DIVINE!!).

 

I'm unable to attach items because of my work filters but PM your email to me and I can send it as an attachment for you that way.

I'm totally confused now! I just went back to the wedding packages and none of that food was on there. I think you payed the private function fee, right? So you get different choices when you pay the private function fee? 6-7 set meal options, mix + match....sounds better. If it's not against forum rules (where it's specific hotel info) can you send it to me as well? Or attach it here, I'm almost at member status?

Haha okay I can totally see the confusion!! We'd chosen the basic wedding package so our reception meal was not included and we had to pay for it separately (ie. it wasn't the Gold or Silver menu option). You can ask Jacy for the menu in case they've made any editions since I'd chosen our meal, but I've added the one I have here. I think our options were in the range of $25-35USD per person (plus taxes). Hope that clears things up a bit!!

That sounds like what she sent me. I was just confused because it didn't have any prices. Since we will have more than 20 guests I was hoping to find something a bit cheaper so we won't have as large of a bill. If the price is still the same and its only $24-35 a person, then that will be a good savings. Every little bit helps!

So now I'm shoe shopping and I could use some advice from all of you who were married here. I really want to get some super cute heels because I'm short and I love high heels, but I'm worried I won't be able to walk on the sand. frown.gif

Has anyone else tried to were heels for their wedding with any success?

I've read the aisle to the gazebo is where the volley ball court is usually set up and the sand should be pretty packed. Plus I'll have the carpet, so I'm hoping I won't fall on my face in the little bit of sand I will have to walk through.

    • 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!
