Hope you mind my sending you a PM just in case you do not read the forum posts daily.
Thanks for responding to my post regarding having a donkey at the reception. My fiance wants to have one really badly, and I must confess that I would like to have one, also. Just for a short while -- maybe 45 to 60 minutes. I am thinking about the great photo opportunites and lasting memories that it will provide not only for us, but for our guests as well.
I found Planner 1 Events on a website, turns out they are located very close to OCT. They do provide donkeys, so one can always be rented from them. I do not know how much it would cost. There may be other places that can provide a donkey, too, but I currently am not aware of any other vendor that does.
The big question is: Are donkeys permitted at wedding receptions at OCT? I wonder if any bride there has had one at her reception?
Unfortunately, both Angelica and Ana are not the most easy people to get ahold of, and they rarely answer emails. And when they do, it's months later and they have only answered half of the questions asked.
Do you mind if we keep in touch regarding this donkey-rental business? If I find out something, I will email you, and vice versa?
Maybe I will send an email right now to Planner 1 Events and ask them if OCT permits donkeys, and if so, how much does it cost? I will get back to you.
A while back I did see a post from a bride who had a donkey, and I thought the wedding was at OCT, but perhaps I am mistaken. I have searched for hours in an attempt to locate that particular post, but for the life of me, I cannot find it. Wish I had written the bride's name down, or post number, or post thread, or something...
