I was curious about music...what is everyone going to walk down the aisle to....are you able to hear it well, do you use a CD or an IPOD?
I gave them a CD with a song for during the signing of the marriage certificate (Bride and groom plus 4 witnesses, so it takes a couple minutes) but they already had Canon in D to use for the entrance and exit. The guy who took care of the music did a great job (i.e. starting and stopping at the right times, playing the right songs at the right times, etc).

As indicated in my review we paid 1500$ per person for all inclusive package from Ottawa, and 1600$ from Halifax, but we booked in January for April departure, so we may have gotten a better deal (i.e. sorta last minute, seeing as it was only 2.5 months before) than if we had booked way in advance. Also I picked the exact departure date based on the cheapest date (seeing as we were flexible and it didn't matter much when we left). Prices for the few weeks (even a few days) before and after (i.e. march and early April) were were 100$-300$ more. I was checking every single depature date online (using itravel2000.com) and picked the cheapest one, even though it meant our filghts weren't direct (through toronto). About a month or so later they came further on sale and I think were like 100$ cheaper per person. When I checked again before leaving the price was something like 2300$ - 2500$ for the same date (which gives me the impression the packages were nearly sold out). The group quotes I got from travel agents and directly from Air Canada Vacations were all about 100-200$ per person more than the price I found with itravel2000.com which is why I just booked directly with them (one travel agent did offer to match my price, but I didn't bother because I wanted to just book right away and get it over with).
