Hi Umi,

     I was on my site visit for your wedding and caught a glimpse of the setup. I thought it turned out beautiful, even in the rain :-) You didn't assign everyone an actual seat, just table, right? Did they pick up their bottles and take them to their seat at the assigned table? Thanks!

 

Thanks! Correct, I just assigned each person or couple to a table. Yes, they took their bottles to their tables.  Only a few were left behind.

Does anyone know if you can bring your own bottles of alcohol for the reception?

I am not sure the answer to this but I do know that unlimited alcohol is already included at the reception

Thanks!

Lauren

If the buffett is open that night you might have people watching but I think that you would have that no matter what time you get married. It probably will be a little dark for pictures but I'm sure a good photographer won't have a problem with that.

 

Regarding the day pass fee for the photographer and assistants. It's good to ask Pilar but I will say that once I got there she didn't charge me for my photographer. Stupid me even said something to her about the extra fee and she told me not to worry about it. I wasn't charged for a lot of things that I was supposed to be charged for (things that she said I would be charged for in emails.) Not sure if that happens a lot but I was surprised how easy everything was regarding the fees once I was there.

I wanted to make some sort of sign that says something along the lines of "Today we become one family so choose a seat, not a side" I'm just having trouble on which type of sign to bring. I found some yard sign type things on vistaprint but you  need to like stick them in the grass or sand and we will be at the Pergola. Does anyone have any idea how we could display a sign like that? I am soo un-creative.

You could get a wood sign and have it leaning against something...or have a chalkboard and write it. The resort might have an easal that you can use but I would check with Pilar about that.

To brides that have already been married at the resort:

 

So I sent my Save the Dates and it looks like I will have about 10-12 guests that will not be staying at the resort. Has anyone had the same situation. I know Pilar said that an all day pass is $110 but there is also a 1/2 day pass. Did they allow your guests to come for the ceremony and reception? Did your guest pay the pass when they arrived at the resort? Did you pay it? How did it work? Any good/bad experiences?

 

Thank you! Just worried about it...

I don't have the answers to your question-sorry! But I'm just wondering where your guest are staying? I haven't been to the resort yet but from my understanding, the Jade is kinda located in a secluded area.

    • 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!
