have fun with it and definitely check out David's in Mississauga. they are worth the trip and I bet you'll find something that you love at a great price. I love their stuff and that's where we got my MOH and FG dresses but in the US. good luck. send a pic when you get it!!

      Hey Brides.. What is everyone doing for a rehearsal dinner? Another bride and I are getting the run around... Chandlyn says to call 2 weeks before to make a reservation for 30 people but the PR person at the hotel says they don't reserve the restaurants for that big of a party without paying the close down fee of $2500... Any already marrieds do a rehearsal dinner or anyone getting close have any info?? Thanks!!

        We're not doing a rehearsal dinner...don't really think it's needed..it's a destination wedding...we are enjoying the not so structured planned out events that ususally go with the "traditional" wedding. We will prob just all meet at the buffet for dinner the day before wedding:)

          I'm slowly straying away from the norm too.. I think all of us might just meet at the pool bar or something..

            I wasn't planning on having a dinner rehearsal either, I think I will say we can meet at the buffet and who ever comes, comes. But I think I remember reading somewhere not to sure where that you call three weeks ahead and make a reservation it didn't say anything about having to pay the $2500.

            there was someone on here that did a rehearsal and dinner and now I don't remember who it was. I remember they did have to make special arrangements with the main Bahia office, not Chandlyn but it wasn't a restaurant close down I don't think. try going back to about page 180 and check around the past posts. if it comes back to me I'll try to get it here but easiest way is to backtrack here. sorry it isn't any more help than that

              we recently got married at this resort and booked without Chandlyn at the grill for our rehearsal.  we were 17 in total,however, the dolce vita was closed for our wedding day and the only other restaurant they have weddings is at the grill and I did n't want to have my rehearsal same place as my wedding.  we asked chandlyn to make a reservation for us at the buffet and she said she would but she didn't.  when we got there we just asked the waiters and they put a few tables together for us.  it all works out.

                The 2500 is if you want a private reception.  They will close down the restaurant and only your party will be there.  Totally not worth it for a small wedding.  You will not feel awkward at either restaurant.
