    Hi Ladies!  A few questions for past and future brides...

     

    Are any of you doing one big rectangle table for the reception?  We are having a small group of about 20 and the reception is outsite on the CECO Terrace and I don't know if one table will look funny with the dance floor.  But if I do round tables it will only be 2-3 of them which may also look funny.  Or I am totally reading into this too much. :)  Also, how much time did the past brides spend with the WC to go over and finalize everything?  I am only going down 2 days before the wedding date and will need time to get the OOT bags and favors ready as well as see the incoming guests.

      Hey Ladies,

       

      We plan to use a bose speaker for the wedding and are trying to figure out what to do for a microphone.  I was wondering what past brides did for a microphone or if they were able to go without one. 

       

      Thank You,

      Ashley

        ashley,

         

        we didnt even ask for the speakers but they brought them anyway for us and  we got to use the microphone for exchanging vows.

          Ally,

           

          Thank you for your response, however, I miss typed and I should have said reception instead of wedding.  I want to make sure that everyone can hear speeches and announcements during dinner.

            Has anyone gotten a 2013 price sheet I only have 2012?

            Thank you, Amanda! I dont think I will spring for the dance floor if there is room to dance anywya. i guess that will be a game time decision. I, as of now, do not have a 2013 price sheet...

              Thank you so much Amanda!! Dance floor will be a game time decision, I guess. I'd like to see the space first. 

               

              I do not have a 2013 price sheet...

                I'm so confused!!! We are planning a wedding at EPM in October and don't know if we should do a civil or a symbolic ceremony. If we do the symbolic do we just bring our marriage license and have it signed by our witnesses at the ceremony? Will the symbolic qualify as a official marriage in the USA or would we still have to do a civil wedding in the US? It takes ages for my coordinator to reply back so any help would very much appreciated!!!!

                  Yea it's all very confusing, but wedding coordinator has all the specifics on what you have to have for civil. If you do symbolic it is not legal in USA, you would need to go to court house and be married to be legal. A lot of brides have done a private ceremony at the court house prior to Mexico, but not told there families and use Mexico as the anniversary date. I'll look through my emails and find what all you need tor it to be legal.

                    For the past brides who had a beach ceremony, did you wear a veil? I am debating and I'm so not sure. The wind is my biggest factor.

                      I did not have a beach wedding, but everyone does take pics on the beach. I loved the way my veil looked, BUT, it had to be tucked into the back of my dress for the ceremony even at the gazebo and most of the pics where it wasn't, I had to face the wind to keep it from being in my face. Worth it, yes but still a pain in the butt. Luckily I didn't have a low cut back dress or I would have had to take it off. The one thing you can't bank on is the weather, so whatever you decide, have a back-up plan!
