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.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
