It has been quiet on here today! Normally when I log on there are pages and pages for me to catch up on.
Welcome to the new ladies who have joined! I love that there are some May brides on here too:)
I just met with the owner of our venue for our AHR and I'm excited. We picked the menu (pending FI's approval of course) and picked our wines to offer. We're going to have a staff member hand champagne to our guests as they enter to kick the party off on a fun foot. We are also picked our wines and beers, and are going to offer several cocktails. Does anyone know of any fun signature drinks we could offer?
After that meeting, I met with our florist along with our coordinator for our AHR. I'm really excited about the things our florist will do with our space. Our AHR is in a wine bar that is owned by one of my BF's fathers, so he's letting us have it all night. It will have a cool, metropolitan feel with lounge furniture and high top tables. I think we're going to hire a cigar roller too, since our space has a great patio. We just want our guests to have an amazing time.
On another note, is anyone hiring someone to videotape your wedding? We will show a slideshow of our pics at our reception, and want to also show a video of our vows, but the quotes I've gotten from Maui for 2ish hours with quick turn around are $650! Is it worth it?
