    Have any past brides got married the end of October? I was booked for May 19, 2014 which is a Monday. Half the wedding party lives in Canada the other half the uk. Well the flights from Manchester came out and the only fly out Mondays! I tried to change my date to later in the week but all booked :( So I'm trying for end of October, wish me luck ladies!

           too funny!  i wanted to stay away from standard nautical or beach colors :) 

          interesting that you're bringing yours from home.  are they real flowers?  how will you keep them fresh?  i'd like to do the same, just not sure how to go about it...

             thanks for clarifying.  makes me nervous to not know my flowers ahead of time and to wait until i get there to browse the catalogue :)  but, i'll take your word for it.  thanks!

            Yes I did book Chris Lee.  I had booked him in April and I saw that you had also booked him as well so I e-mailed them after reading that to double check and they told me that I still have Chris Lee booked.  My wedding isn't until 4pm, and I told them that I didn't want the 'getting ready photos' before the wedding so I am assuming he is just booked back to back.

              That's what I thought too, the Dolce Vita has a much better lay out for a reception but the menu of options they sent me did not impress me, but I guess I'd rather have a nice venue.  Do you know how they set up things for speeches? first dance? Being semi-private....not sure how they do all that stuff

                No they are fake! They are called real touch flowers and my friend got one and it looks amazing! You would never know the difference.

                  That's what I thought as well. Dolce sounded nicer but we ain't down with that menu! Lol so I went with the grill. I just want then to arrange tables different then what I heard. Will they change the tableclothes? I'm doing my first dance and cake down at gazebo. Before diner we are all meeting for cocktails. After diner we are doing sky lanterns then we are gonna party like rockstars!

                    Lol you scared me! Yes I confirmed as well. I'm getting married at 2, I do have him coming to rooms.then ceremony and beach session but since your not doing rooms it leaves time.

                    Yes I did book Chris Lee.  I had booked him in April and I saw that you had also booked him as well so I e-mailed them after reading that to double check and they told me that I still have Chris Lee booked.  My wedding isn't until 4pm, and I told them that I didn't want the 'getting ready photos' before the wedding so I am assuming he is just booked back to back.
