    Hello Ladies!  I joined BDWF a few months back but haven't submitted many posts yet.  So here I am!!!  We are getting married in January at DLR.  I've been reading a lot of the posts and thank you all for the great info, tips and advice you share with each other :)

      Thank you, Dcairns!

      The stress is starting to settle in, so I guess that means I'm getting closer!?

      Ok, so I have gone through most of the tips/posts and have come up with a few questions of my own (I hope you all don't mind!);

      1) For the music that I'd like to be played during the ceremony, does the resort prefer mp3's or cd's when playing the music from their system?

      2) Does anyone know if they offer black linens?  ~I know, not the most exciting, but I haven't seen them used before and I think they'd be different!

      3) Is it a possibility to attend a (semi-private) a la carte with 35-45 people in attendance?

      4) Would anyone happen to have a SSG menu handy?  My email is our.family.03@gmail.com.  I can't seem to open the posts on this site...?

      5) Do the staff have any 'issues' with stating "I now pronounce you husband and wife."?  I'm not picky, I just do not want any of our guests knowing it's a symbolic ceremony!

      6) Pink Petals (I realize your wedding has passed and you might not be on as often, but I thought I would ask anyways!), where did you end up getting your lanterns?  I live close to Toronto and am always looking for a bargain!

      *Thank you!

          Welcome Lisa and get started on those posts.  It really helps when you need templates and they're posted as attachments.

            Was the rental of the Sea Side Grill Deck still $1260 ($1,000 + 26%)?  I want my reception on the deck as well.  I just love how that looks. The inside is also my back up plan for the weather.





            Hey,

            I actually went with the Silver Menu option and paid per person! It was something like $30/person + tax! Do you need the menu and prices? Lemme know

              Thanks for the welcome!!!!

               

              We are getting married in the gazebo.  Tiara has informed us that to have the gazebo draped in the white tulle/organza (I'm not even sure what material it is!) would cost an additional $150.  Have any of you or are any of you going to bring your own material to decorate the gazebo?  If so, how much of it did you buy?

               

              Also, for the Canadian brides who flew with Sunwing, how many a la carte dinners does the package include?

                Hey Arily,

                 

                this post disappeared but it was in my email:

                 

                1) For the music that I'd like to be played during the ceremony, does the resort prefer mp3's or cd's when playing the music from their system?

                From my understanding, they have a systme that plays the ceremony music. I know some brides have brought CDs but sometimes don't work. So i would bring both JUST in case.  Also the WC has asked me what the songs I wish are and I believe she is arranging it.  Previous brides may know more than I...

                 

                2) Does anyone know if they offer black linens??? ~I know, not the most exciting, but I haven't seen them used before and I think they'd be different!

                IN my photo album I have the colors that Tiara sent to me, none of them were black i'm afraid. But you could always ask. I know Bee brought her own down (Pink Petals)

                 

                3) Is it a possibility to attend a (semi-private) a la carte with 35-45 people in attendance?

                I know its available for less than 15 people.  Other than that i'm not sure for that amount. Best person is to contact Yanna or Tiara.

                 

                4) Would anyone happen to have a SSG menu handy??? My email is .?? I can't seem to open the posts on this site...?

                I do have it but it changes every 3 months. I believe its in my photo album as well.  Didn't get your email there........... you can pm me.

                 

                5) Do the staff have any 'issues' with stating "I now pronounce you husband and wife." I'm not picky, I just do not want any of our guests knowing it's a symbolic ceremony!

                They will do whatever you wish!

                 

                6) Pink Petals (I realize your wedding??has passed??and you might not be on as often, but I thought I would ask anyways!), where did you end up getting your lanterns???  I would like to know aswell :)

                  We have WAY too many people coming to do the $30/pp because the rental of the SSG at $1260 would cover the meal for 60 people and we're expecting 100 but yes, would you please provide me with the menu.  Thanks!

                      Does anyone have the prices for the private receptions only? I am wondering if its cheaper to just upgrade to one of wedding the packages that include the dinner but we are already at 30 guests...

                       

                      Mr Williams, you mentioned that the SSG costs  $1260 for up to 60 ppl...is that for the area reservation and food only? or does it include something else like drinks and music? Would you know?

                       

                      Anyway girls, thanks for posting so much information!! You are all my wedding planners!!

                       

                      XOXO
