      I have sent a few emails to Yanna and Tiara lately as my date is getting close, May 3, and I have received responses same day or day after. I send to both of their emails at the same time. One of my email's both Tiara and Yanna responded separately within four hours.

      I paid about 400.00 for the Bose (mobile) ipod dock at Future shop. You can buy an ipod for just over 100.00 these days. I think it was worth it because you will have it after and you also have control over your music. You also don't have to deal with a spanish speaking DJ if you don't speak the language.

          Putting the date in your subject line to Tiara really does help. Got a response within hours.

            GEM your centerpieces sound beautiful without having to spend so much money :)
            If I decide to do the centerpieces with candles, I read that as long as you have tall hurricane vases, the wind wont be able to blow the flame out. I will test this at home on a winy day.
            Btw, how are you carrying the vases down? I was thinking of distributing them amongs people to take them in their carry-ons but does the airline allow this? Maybe they think glass can be broken as used as a weapon?

            Another option are flameless candles that operate with batteries..they look very real...im just looking for a better deal because so far they seem a little pricey. If anyone knows a place where I can buy them for cheaper pls lemme know! :)

            Dolfinluck...I love that pic...that one insipred me for my engagement party...I made those tissue pop poms by myself in hot pink, lime green and orange :) Martha Stewart was charging too much and she only had a few colors available). (Ive changed my wedding color theme from orange to brown since then).

            I love the idea of using lanterns as well..they are so easy to carry....where did you get them from?

            *yay* Jenne....congrats and we all hope you will have an amazing wedding! Please dont forget about us when you get back...we are so eager to hear all about it and to see lots of pics of course :)

              I got a bunch from Micheal's, a couple from chinatown in philly and just got some in the mail from luna bazaar (not in the picture).

I know it's probably hard for you to imagine, but it really was a great place to have dancing. IF you need your guests to be able to see you at all while they're sitting at their seats on the SSG Deck, i do NOT think they'd be able to see you up at the concrete landing. (We did our 1st dance after dinner.)
                Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of the overall view of the deck, but since you aren't getting married until September, I would be more than happy to share the pics from my photographer once I get the rest.

                2. By the time we were eating, the sun had set. There was enough light. I will say that I bought a bunch of Pillar candles to be scattered on all the tables. It was too windy at first to light them but half way through dinner the wind died down and the Staff was able to light them. That was nice b/c it gave everything a serene glow. Even without the candles though, there was enough light, although it was a little on the dark side.
                Some paper lanterns were hanging from the trees immediately in front of the SSG. They didn't have any lights in them. None of our lanterns had lights in them. The Staff hung them for us. Again, no pics yet. But when we get our photographers' pics back I will def share!

                Thanks so much for the quick reply :) It was very helpful!!! I can't wait to see all of your photographs :)

                Im trying to figure out whether I should go with round tables or rectangualr ones so I have one more quick question...I noticed that you had rectangular tables rather than round ones....how many of those did you have (for how many guests) any how many people could be seated at each table?

                Thanks so much again!!! I truly appreciate all your great info..

                  I'm going to take some extra lanterns too. I've stopped planning the LR wedding because I've been focusing on getting the AHR settled. And finally ... we actually got my dream location ... for an affordable price.
                  Those of you in Toronto -- we're having the reception at Ultra (formerly Ultra Supper Club), which is one of the hottest / trendiest places in the city. Through a lot of luck, we happen to know a few people who know the owner and they gave us a deal. So we'll be putting the downpayment this week and I can finally send out the invitations.

                  It's sooo exciting that everyone's day is coming up!!!

                    Congrats, Jenne!
                    Not much longer for me now, and I've been swamped trying to get everything done, everyone packed, etc... (my parents have never really been away and are driving me NUTS with small details!)

                    Oh lala, Ultra! my FI worked there for a couple years (bouncing on the wknds). Gorgeous venue!!

                      Have a great wedding Jenne!! Hope everything goes off without a hitch! I'm quite excited for all of us brides in April and May!

                      And thanks girls, I finally got a response from Yanna today. It took over a week and me having to copy the email to Tiara with my wedding date in the Subject line. I keep forgetting that does the trick! lol

                      Yanna told me that I have a dj included for the ceremony apparently but for dinner it's $250.

                      Also, I had a pamphlet thingy from Tiara sent to me months ago that showed wooden chairs for $8 each but when I asked about it, Yanna just told me $12 each. I sure hope I can get them for $8, 'cause even that is pushing my budget!
