Thanks for the answers!! Wow, that means the ceremony really just FLIES by! I wonder if we could prolong the cocktail hour. =(  Isn't the purpose of the cocktail hour to WAIT for the reception?  =/ 

 

I also wonder if I could play a slideshow during the cocktail hour...

We had the cocktail hour immediately afterwards in the adjacent area. It lasted one hour. At the end of the hour, our WC announced that cocktail hour was done and that the guests could go the lobby bar until the reception. My mom still laughs about the way it ended.

Has anyone who has gotten married at Moon already used the hotel photographers? Del Sol is way out of our price range. Anyone find a company better priced? Or use Moon and were happy with the photos there? when we were there in the spring it seemed the Moon photos were ok for family photos but not too sure about wedding photos.

Thanks for your help.

You can always pay to make the cocktail hour longer. I think they wanted everyone to leave so that they could rearrange stuff for the reception since we had it in the same space.

Thank you Mochamakes3~ your flowers were beautiful! Not to mention they're yours for good now ,) What other type of flower is in the bouquet other then the calla lilies?? I really like that. I will definately keep that in mind about real touch although I was leaning towards usuing my bridal bouquets as centerpiece deco...decisions decisions.......

Thanks MrsD2B - All the bouquets had orange callas, yellow callas and white orchids. In the BM bouquets, I added white stephanotis with rhinestone centers. And I had the fuchsia fresh roses added to mine. I also used the bouquets for our centerpieces. We had a sweetheart table and 3 round tables for our guests. I put my bouquet with my parents' table and the BM bouquets with the other two. MP provided the vases and put pink gel beads in the bottom of all the vases.

We did not use the resort photographer.  We use La Luna which is their sister company and they are cheaper.

That's true.  Do you know if the cocktail MUST begin immediately following the ceremony or do you think I could postpone it another half hour?  (ie, ceremony at 5pm, cocktail at 6pm)

I just tried to reserve Arricifes for my welcome dinner and was advised it was already booked. The only day I can do it is the day before my wedding and I don't want to do it then b/c I'm also suppose to have a bridal brunch for the ladies in the group. I thought about even having my welcome dinner/bridal brunch mixed but my fiance isnt thrilled with having any group dinner the night before - which makes sense. crybaby2.gif

 

So now I'm stuck with Gondola Italian Buffet or Barracuda. Does anybody know anything about these two? I'm leaning towards just moving my welcome dinner to the night before rolleyes.gif but I really dont want to.

 

Also my WC sent me a photo of an amethyst rose tuscan gazebo wedding like I asked. You'll notice it's way more rosey then amethyst"y" :).

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
