We are thinking about upgrading, too. We just need to see how many people will end up being able to come. November is still pretty far away... Sunset, you have just three more months to go!!!
Are you planning on bringing any of your own decorations? I think that sounds like a big pain, especially since I will be bringing OOT bags, but I don't want to end up paying a lot for decorations once I get there...
I really like the idea of not having to pay for a welcome dinner. I think people will still be happy being able to sit together at a restaurant even if it is not private. That's a good place to save some money.
Are you guys doing a DJ or ipod or anything at your reception?
Tiners - try firstname.lastname@example.org, that is how I got a hold of them. I'm kind of in love with their pictures We are bringing down some decorations...uuugghhhh I think I'm going to have a ridiculous amount of suitcases! We are bringing chair sashes for the ceremony and reception dinner, and we are bringing raffia fans (for ceremony) and mini maracas as favors (for dinner reception). Our wedding party gifts and OOT bags are going to take up the most of our luggage LOL
We haven't decided on music yet for the dinner. I suggested to FI that we just make a fun playlist on our iPod but I think it's like $500 for 3 hours to use their iPod dock. We have one but it is not very good quality We probably won't be doing any dancing, so I don't want to spend $$$ for a DJ. We are already spending an arm and a leg on our AHR so I will save the dancing for then!

tiners17-my welcome cocktail and appetizer party will be privtae(at least I think so). I have Ivan Luckie for photography and DJ Doreemixx.
is anybody having a videographer? we are bouncing back and forth about it. It wasn't in the budget, but I read on here that some people decided at the last minute to get one and they were really happy they did.
Bunny - Yep! Gloria made our reservation, you should try to email her again. She must be getting busy because she took like 2 days to get back to me the last time I emailed her.
I haven't fully decided on a videographer yet. It's really not in the budget but I think it would be really nice. So far, we are paying for everything on our own - but if our parents magically give us some money we might splurge a little
