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 :)
Honestly I have never seen anyone use round tables on the terrace nor have seen it as an option. I could be wrong, but I think you would want rectangular tables due to the limited space of the terrace. I went through this same thing and ultimately ended up switching to the bamboo room.

I have also read that the terrace is too narrow for round tables.

Hi Ladies,

 

I am struggling a bit with our layout for the dinner in the Bamboo Room.  Any advice is appreciated!

We have 44 guests coming, 15 of which are in the wedding party (7 on my side, 6 on his- which drives me CRAZY, but I'll figure that part out LOL)

 

Here are my thoughts:

 

- do we have a head table with all of the wedding party, and then the other 29 guests spread amongst rounds?

- do we just do all rounds?

- a sweetheart table with just bride, grrom, MOH, and BM?

- one long table for all of us?  I saw a really cute pic which had say, 3 long rectangular tables, back to back with 3 other long, pushed together, so it looked like one big table, and then we can all eat together, facing each other at one big table?  (this would also help me with decreasing the cost of runners LOL)

 

My concerns are aesthetic of course, but also, for example, my BM is bringing his girlfriend, and she won't be able to eat with him if he's at a head table.  I know this is typical and happens often, but I was just thinking that because the nature of a destination wedding is more casual to begin with, we could stray from the norm.

 

Help!

Also- if anyone saw the Now Jade dinner locations document, page 4 is what I am referring to, for one big table :)

I'll attach it agin here.

Just my opinion but I'm not a fan of head tables. I've been to so many weddings that my FI was in and we couldn't sit together. I just didn't like it. Although since this is a DW, your BM's girlfriend will probably meet people and make friends throughout the trip, but she may still like to eat dinner next to her boyfriend.

 

I'd like to see a pic of the 3 long tables your talking about. I can't picture it. If everyone is facing each other, that would be nice. Sometimes the long tables are soooo long, it's kind of awkward if you have so many people at one table. It's hard to talk to everyone!

 

We aren't in the Bamboo Room, we are in Castaways, but we are opting for a sweetheart table (just bride and groom) and the rest round tables. 

 

I'm sure whatever you decide will look just fine!

Here is a pic- on the document Pilar sent me. I think I like the look of this, just not sure how it will fit in the Bamboo room- although, this IS in the Bambbo Room.   maybe do this for dinner, then they could break it away for dancing?

That's pretty set up, but I still vote for a round table set up! Let us know which you decide!

What does everyone think about inviting the BM's girlfriend to sit at the head/sweetheart table? I am thinking about doing this with my married MOH whose husband is not in the wedding. Would this be totally inappropriate?

    • 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
