      That is what I thought as well.  We are having 17 people but only doing the free wedding.  I've read there really is enough cake for 20 or so people so I'm not spending more on a larger one.  May have to do so with the champagne but that's no biggie.

      I went back and read the contract from the wedding manager (Stafanie something). It outlines the packages and with the Free Pacakge they tell you there is no limit on guest up to the capacity of the hotel. The only thing they mention is that the cake and sparkling wine is for 10.  I think it's a good idea to go back and re-read the contract.

              We're not worried about the cake.. I can't even remember ONE time when I ate a cake at a wedding. We'll just cut 'diet' slices LOL and it will fit. We'll have about 20-25 (if all goes according to plan) and that includes some kids.  With champagne, my mom said that since it's her only daughter getting married, she'll buy REAL champagne at duty free (a few bottles). So we don't have to worry about that.

                I had the free wedding with about 35 guests & had the "standard" cake & there was more than enough cake to go around.

                  BMADZIA1,

                  Where will your mom get the champagne from?  That's actually a good idea to purchase the real stuff but I'm just not sure where I'd get it. 

                  I leave in 20 days!

                      We're departing out of Pearson, and she said she'll get one at a local LCBO and then some at the Duty Free at the airport.  She'll then distribute the bottles among family so everyone brings a bottle LOL   Since my boss is leaving for a trip shortly, I'll have him check the duty shop to ensure they have champagne there...
