Hmm, I'll do my best to help you out with this one. She is correct about the arch, drapery, chair covers all being included. Just be aware that that arch is BARE until you tell her you want to add a floral arrangement to it. If you want something more than flowers on it, say an ivy, for example, I would be sure to say that and double check with her. The additional floral arrangements for the columns and the arch were $25 USD each I believe. I don't know if that's comparable to off-site florist prices as this was something I did not look in to. If you have something very specific in mind for your arrangements, I would definitely consider a private florist, that way you will know exactly what you are getting and what you are paying for. Like I said, the additional flowers weren't hideous or anything, but it's not what I had pictured in my head when she said that they would match the bouquet, because really...they didn't use most of the same flowers for them that they did in my bouquet. I hope this helps!

No she didn't mention how much it would cost to decorate the whole arch, and I didn't think to ask because I was under the impression that the whole thing WOULD be decorate lol, boy was I wrong. Sorry I can't be more help on this one, just make very certain that if you want something other than the plain old undecorated arch by itself that you tell her in great detail how you want it to look.

Thanks you so much for your excellent review. You covered absolutely everything!! Your pictures are beautiful too. I do have a couple of questions if you don't mind?

1. Is the steakhouse air conditioned? Was everyone able to order off of the menu? Did they cover your table with special linens?

2. Did you do anything with your group after the wedding? How about a cocktail hour?

 

I am trying to keep my costs down. I was thinking I could do the dinner like you did and then do a cocktail hour by the pool with a dj. That would save me the $800 or more for the reception. Any suggestions. Thanks

 

Oh, 1 more thing. Did you have a meeting spot for your group to meet during the day and in the evening? I was thinking about rotating between the 2 lobby bars in the evening and by the pool bar on the del mar side during the day. Do you know the name of that bar?

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
