We also did the cocktail hour with apps. I am guessing it was worth it. Groom and I were doing photos during that time. All the apps were pretty much gone when we arrived and I heard the food was good.

I have taken sashes, fans and bubbles for the ceremony and maracas, menu and gifts/favors for the dinner.

Gift/favors - set up on the table at the reception is included in the Ultimate package whilst set up the sashes taken by home cost 2$ each. I had only 10 chairs and at the end Cecilia didn't ask me extra money.

Thank you so much for this picture!  I haven't any pictures of the cocktail/appetizer and my guests described me exactly what I see in your image.

Thanks CriCri definitely the first picture I have seen of any appetizers.  We were thinking mexican as well.  What did you choose for dinner?  Does anyone have pictures of the reception at the gazebo?  I had found one but I lost it and I am trying to figure out where everyone will be standing during our first dance.  We will have the dinner pool side and use the gazebo as a dance floor.  Where do you think everyone stands while you dance?

 

thanks-

Nicole

I just thought of something else, when we are all done with the ceremony and people put their shoes back on, do they just brush off their feet?  Do we provide towels?  Any advice?

I am taking place card holders and maracas... I want her to set it up if possible, of course she isn't responding to my emails even though my wedding is in a week or so.  I don't know why she is picking now.  Anyway I want to relax when I get there.  It so hectic right now I just want to be done.  How much is the set up fee anyone know???  I am doing cocktails with apps... I think its totally worth it.  People will be hungry and need entertainment while you take pics and they set up for dinner.  Apps are sometimes the most memorable treats...

 

ANyone doing extra desserts or a dessert table with the cake?

I was completely set on the Gazebo until I saw the new setup. I love it!  I'm still working on decor.  I need to get in touch with the florist and see what my options are.  I know I'm going to add somewhere but I'm trying to keep the budget in check.

    • 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!
