That's fantastic you managed to get it all worked out We have found Vanessa to be great too especially with how quickly she gets back to e-mails. It'll be here before we both know it!
If you look on the GP Weddings website it has quite a lot of info on decor and extras which is quite helpful. I think we're going to take our own paper lanterns which Vanessa suggested as they're easy to transport and super inexpensive. Where have you booked for your meal? Do you have a big party? We'll have about 40 so have booked Portofino based on the positive reviews of former brides. Vanessa has sent me the menu for there if you need I can forward to you. So far we have booked wedding, photographer and violinist but everything else to do. Vanessa has also sent me bouquet photos if you wanted I can forward those too. I haven't chosen colours yet so can't think about flowers at the moment. Have you got a colour scheme?
You're right about the dresses, they do all look great! I've only been once, didn't find the one but saw lots of lovely options.
Good luck with your planning also, if there's anything I can help with just holler. If you haven't already, you should check out palladiumaddicts.net it has a tonne of info.
