Where did you buy the chair sashes and napkins? What was the vendors name on Etsy? Did you get charged $1 per chair for bringing your own chair sashes?

 

Napkins I got from amazon check on there! $1 a napkin. Plain white comes in your wedding package. Extra $4 charge for color napkins. You can bring your own chair sashes they charge $1 to tie them. 

@@jh0510038 agreed on the outrageous floral prices! I hadn't realized how close your date is! You must be so excited! As for me, I joined here the day we sent our deposit to Anel, and I'm getting eaten up with anxiety over the costs already! Yes, if you could let me know if Ramon takes any issue with continuing to meet the florists outside the gates that would be much appreciated! I actually just received some prices from Florerias Lucy and they are FAR more reasonable, but she said she wasn't aware that meeting the brides outside the gates was no longer an option. Maybe they've resorted back to allowing this practice? I really hope so!

@@jeffandrobyn thanks for all the suggestions! I've already spent several late nights going back through these threads and bookmarking Oriental Trading Company and other wholesale providers of things like table runners, sashes, etc. My guest list is much larger than I anticipated so I'm definitely going to have to forego their decoration fees and the like so that I can keep my costs down. I will definitely look into Disco Movil since I see 2 recs for them in a row!!

 

 

The expense really gave me a lot of anxiety I just decided I would bring a lot saving me a significant amount of money. If anyone is flying southwest they get two free bags checked so I am passing luggage to family. 

 

You mentioned your guest list is larger then anticipated, how many do you have attending?

@@megmcd412 when I was trying to book they took a long time to get back to me and so that is normal, I ended up calling multiple times because her assistant kept saying she wasn't available and I was in a crunch because we were giving guests a 10 month notice which worked out but it was very frustrating at first but after that was booked it's been smooth sailing from there. Sounds like others got a response eventually. I didn't end up getting the day I wanted by the time I got through to them but I'm happy regardless with what I got!

Hi ladies! I am in the process of booking with Now for the end of July 2015! I'm so excited but I have so many questions!  Two specific things.  We are considering going with the free package and just adding on a few things.  Does anyone know if their is a way to do a dinner reception after without having to pay PP?  It doesn't have to be a set menu, even if it was in the buffet and we could just have a semi private area?  Not sure if they would do that.  Also, I'm trying to find the prices for the salon?  Anyone have those?  Thanks!

Congrats on the engagement! I have the spa prices I can email you. 

 

I cannot answer your other question, ask your wedding planner once it is assigned. I am sure it is an option if you do no have that many guest. Let me know what other questions you have I am getting very close to my date and have asked 100 questions and was very overwhelmed at first.

Congrats! I'm a July bride too :) 

 

To answer your questions: 

 

1. If you just show up impromtu with a group for dinner after your ceremony, they won't take more than 10 people at a table. However, you could get your entire group together in a semi-private area I believe, for about $24 per person. 

 

2. Prices for the salon you can find on my wedding website. (I'm totally type A. lol). Just go to the FAQ page. The site is www.jeffandrobyn2015.com.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
