I have a couple pictures of the Pisces that Donnalee sent me but I cannot seem to get them to post. If you want to PM me your email I can send them to you.

They ask you how many guests you are going to have and you pay right then and there for the extras.  That means if you tell them you will have 45 guest they will set up that many chairs for your ceremony, which in my opinion might look terrible if half them are empty for your ceremony, and that many settings for table. They will also need more waiters ect if you tell them you have more people then you will, like 20 more.  In my opinion you are best not to lie to them about the number of people, but explain you want to exclusively rent out the snack bar and suggest that you will pay more to do so.  Thats just my opinion though.

I was worried about not having the minimum amount of people they said is needed for the Piscis, but I dont see how they are really going to know this anyway .. what are your thoughts about it?

www.henkaa.com is a great alternative they cut the dresses in the same fabric so they all match but each girl can tie them however you want or is best for them. It's also very practical as they can definitely wear them again. They also come in long and short lengths! Plus a Canadian company : )

Thanks, great find!

I just checked out the site for this dress, it's pretty cool.  I am just concerned that it may not be very flattering for my quite busty BM, but I sent them the info on it to see if it was something they would be interested in.  I also ordered some samples in the colours that I liked, they were free.  I might just even order one of these dresses for myself, I have a couple weddings to attend this summer and it would be perfect, and then they call all try it to see!

I think thats great advice JayKay .. thanks so much!

I have a feeling they will tell me I need to def have the minimum amount of ppl. So I guess now I need to figure out what to do about our dinner/reception. I dont mind doing the free dinner, but I really wanted to have everything (dinner and dance) at the same place so we could do everything the way we wanted to. Looks like I have some figuring out to do. worried2.gif

I just wanted to add my two cents worth on the convertible dress option. I bought convertible dresses for my girls. I was going to order it from Henkaa because its a toronto company but I didn't want to pay that much. I used this company http://www.etsy.com/shop/kinderbliss?ref=seller_info because it was much cheaper for regular size and plus size. This seller makes custom sizes and has a large range of color and convertible style. One of my bridesmaid is a true plus size girl. she wears a 42 DD cup bra and street size 18/20. she is 5'9 tall though. She wears the convertible dress with the tube top. it is great because she can wear it many ways. there is at least 5 flattering ways that she can wear it. the tube top allows for a bra which is important. The seller makes the straps very wide and long so that it can cover well. I think my bridesmaid look great and they can use this dress over and over again.

Victoria Secret also has some but they are very limited on colour options, but come at a great price. I own two and love them. My MOH is also very busty and she also recently had a baby so coverage was a concern of hers. She bought the Henkaa dress as well as the matching tube top and loves it, and I love that they can actually wear them again as well. Also as for the price Henkaa is much cheaper than the more popular Two Birds and the fabric is amazing! It has some good weight to it which is very flattering yet it is very cool in the sun.

If they tell you you have to have a minimum amount of people well that sucks, but it is what it is.  And don't worry, they may change their minds once you get down there.  I found that they told me one thing while planning, but once I got down there they just didn't really care and did what we asked.  What about renting the gazebo for dancing??
