If anyone is thinking about bringing their own tablecloths down you might be interested in checking out www.linentablecloth.com. They ship to Canada as well as the US. Instead of paying $4/person for coloured napkins from the resort.. I got 3 dozen navy blue cloth napkins for about 50 cents a piece. They happen to have a sale on for TODAY ONLY... 20% the entire site + free shipping. If you sign up for their newsletters you will get updates about their sales/promotions. 

 

I've attached two documents that I recently received from Pilar.

They show the setup and the measurements of the Pergola and the aisle. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here images she sent me of the table dimensions.

 

700 700

Where are you having your reception? I read somewhere that the round tables at the terrace seat 8 people but in the bamboo room and castaways they seat up to 10? Does anyone know if they use the same tables for all reception locations? Thanks.

I asked pilar about tables for the Bamboo Room and she said 54 inches...

I really want to wear one but dont fancy the idea of it blowing around in the wind during the ceremony, anyone been there around that time of year that can give me some advise... I might just buy one n see what its like when i get there??? 

 

Hi! I have heard this as well. I ended up buying one and depending on the weather I will decide last minute to wear or not. I am hoping that I can wear it tho. I get married next week so I will let you know how it goes.

 

I also know you can buy "veil weights" online that you can adhere to veil but can't see so it doesn't blow around.

I'm also hoping to have the option of making a last minute switch to the bamboo room if I find the the Terrace is too cramped for my group. We are a group of 35 + 3 infants. I am also getting married at the Pergola and having our cocktail hour at the Blue Bar. 

 

I am bringing our own photographers from home.. we simply have to pay for their trip and agree to purchase an album of photos. We have them all day as well as a bonus day.. I'm thinking about doing a TTD session. :)

 

Are you using an officiant from the resort? I'm concerned about the language barrier... so I've asked my brother-in-law to act as an officiant. I'm working on writing out the ceremony right now and am hoping he can add to it so that it doesn't sound too scripted. 

 

I look forward to reading your review!

 

We are having them be the officiant, but I am going to request somewhere with a very minimal language barrier haha. We wrote our own script and will provide it to them ahead of time so they can read it over and ask any questions if need be, I will definitely let you know how that part goes!

 

...but I also think it's nice to have a family member act as officiant, especially if you have a good relationship, makes it more special i think =)

Hey Shannon,

 

Where did you find the little baggies?

 

Thanks :)

I found this online:

48" diameter seats 6

60" diameter seats 10 max

 

So I think 54" would be good for a max of 8, which is what we are doing, if that helps.

Ladies,

 

I found this on another forum and am totally using it in my OOT bags- a little handout of common Spanish phrases & translations- instead of getting a Spanish for Dummies or something.  PM me if

you're unable to open the attachment :)

I was also thinking of including this in our OOT bags, but don't want to freak anyone out.  BUT- what if something happened, (Gog forbid)?  What do you guys think?

Hi All,

 

Does anyone happen to have measurements for the Terrace?  I'm trying to decide how comfortable it would be for a head table (for the bridal party) and 4 round tables. Anyone know how comfortably this would fit/look?

 

If anyone has any info or advice, that would be great!

 

Thanks!

Jen :)

    • 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
