    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.

      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!

          So excited, we are officially less then a year away from being married!!  When I started the whole planning process a couple months ago, it felt like forever, but time has flown by already.  Here's to hoping the next year goes by quickly too!!

              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. 

              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.

                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

                Thanks, great find!

                  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??
