Wow, Tenny & Chris... you guys are making me seriously reconsider the sit down dinner on the day of the wedding! I never looked at the fact that we would have 2 sitdown dinners back to back. Hmmm, decisions decisions...

Chris can you give me the optios for the cocktail hour? Am I assuming that the cocktail portion can be seated Tenny, as you mentioned having 8 tables? How did your guests feel? Were they happy with cocktail and afterparty instead of a formal reception? I truly appreciate your feedback.

Diva, they give you a list to choose from, I know we had cocktail patties, shrimp, jerk chicken....I don't remember what else they had, there was a bar just for a us.  I don't even think anyone knew that it wasn't a full reception except for John and I.  It wasn't missed, people were dancing and mingling.  It was a great time...I wouldn't have changed anything!

I was curious of the menu myself so I asked my TA!  You will find below  the options my TA said the resort offered. Hope this helps. My plan as of now is to extend the one hour cocktail hour to two hours an extra $12 per person and add a beef craving station. And since I have more than 10 rooms booked I will get the $15 dollar credit per guest to toward my reception. I also plan to do the dj for two hours. This will be half of what I would have to pay for a seat down meal!! I will bring table runners and a few thing to put on the table and call it day. Later that night all the young folks are going to meet up and party like there is no tomorrow. Lol! Thanks again Tenny for all the information!!

    Some example of hot - hors d' oeuvres are  shrimp, chicken skewers, sausage, for cold hors d' oeuvres - salmon, brie cheese, crab meat, all  bite size.

Thank you Ladies for the info. My FI are discussing this option now! With a Welcome dinner the night before, it does seem redundant to have another formal meal. Keeping you guys posted. Chrs, how is the planning going?  Tenny, you looked stunning on your day! Did you mention Kompa..Vous Ãªtes Haitienne? :-))))))

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • 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!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
