Hi akelly!

No we had no problems booking for the 23rd. We just had our travel agent take care of all of the booking details. I believe the day you land counts as a day.

Hi girls!

 

For the girls who got married at this resort, can you please tell me:

1) what cake flavours did you choose? I am thinking of the "smoothie milk" flavour, but do you know what this is? Is it like a tres leches cake?

 

2) what is your favourite and the best restaurant on the resort.

 

any information would be greatly appreciated!!!

WARNING!! I heard from Patricia today, after sending her my ala carte preference and # of guests. We've currently got 41 booked, and perhaps a few straglers. She responded by saying, "About the guests, i remind you that our a la carte restaurants are not that big, we can`t fit that many people in the seating, the maximun are 40, so the 41 are ok. But my suggestion it`s to go for a private reception, it`s better for you because it`s more tiem and better service. I`m sending you the info."

'The Info' tells me that a private reception in a banquet hall starts at $35/plate and on the beach $85 per person! This is NOT in our budget, so I wrote back and told her this is the first I've heard of a limit, and we have not budgeted for it. I offered to change restarants if she thinks there is one a bit bigger to accommodate us.

I'm really hoping that she's just trying to sell me on spending more $$ at the resort and that this is not going to be an issue!!! I will keep you all posted on how it pans out! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Hi all, My fiance and I will most likely be getting married at this resort in August 2010. We have recieved a quote from Calgary double occupancy of $1734 Canadian, has anyone else recieved quotes for this time of year?? If anyone has any 2010 pricing they can share that would be super helpful as the website still has 2009 prices up (packages, extras, photo packages, cakes, flowers etc). I was hoping for a reception outside but it looks like that wont be an option as we will only have approx 20 guests attending and the beach party has a min of 40 guests. Any pictures anyone would be willing to send me would also be very much appreciated. I like the gazebo but was wondering if it has to have the red carpet, i deffinatley do not want a carpet on the aisle.

 

Any other advice anyone has would be super appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Nadine

I'm having the same problem. I have Feb. 27th, 2010 booked and now, 6 months before, I just found out that if we have over the 40 limit, (we have about 70 people saying they are going to come right now); they are telling us we have to do a beach reception. (Which the prices drastically went up from the 2009 prices.) So I have no idea what I'm going to do... that is completely out of my budget as well.
I'd love to hear if you find a loophole to this people limit...

We had decided to have the beach party when we booked earlier this year for this November.

 

They just sent me all of the new information and forms to fill out. I was surprised when I saw the prices had all gone up. So, I e-mailed asking if they were going to give me the original pricing and they have agreed to honour the price and package we were originally quoted which was $80 a person.

 

I think the pricing has just gone up recently, so if you did book before they raised them, maybe they will do the same for you.

Patricia got back to me and, after "speaking with her manager" they've agreed to let me have my dinner in an ala carte. But they've got to put us in the Fondue restaurant, which wasn't my first choice. Oh well, fondue can be a lot of fun, I'll just have to be careful not to get it all over my dress! I'm more relieved than pissed at this point, but I'm not so sure my fiance is going to feel the same way.

She did say that if no more book and we've got 41, they will let us stick with our first choice, but I really can't make her any garauntees, so I think I'm better off just committing to the fondue.

 

alopez, there is another option of a banquet hall dinner, where you'd get the whole hall to yourselves. This starts around $35/plate, which at the very least is more affordable than $85 for a beach reception!! If I were you, I wouldn't panick just yet... lots of people have great intentions of coming, but as the time closes in they realize they don't have the time/resources to go. So you may be down to a managable number by the actual wedding date, and perhaps you can convince them to accommodate you with a few extra...

    • 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!
