Does anyone know which beer is served and if they serve premium liquor? I looked at the website but cannot find the different beers & liquors they offer.

Hey ladies, Iâ€m looking for a bit of clarification/insight regarding entrée selections and seating. I want to be able to provide my guests with the option to choose their entrée†s but I donâ€t want to coordinate assigned seating. My guest count is +/- 25 and I plan on having a long table set-up. What is the best approach for this scenario without accruing added cost from the resort? Do I just provide Pilar with quantities per entrée selection and create placecards with the guests name and entrée selection and direct them to choose a seat and place it on their plates? Is this acceptable? I'm open to suggestions.

Now you've got me thinking about this. I originally was just going to choose one meal to make it easier on myself, but the more I think about it, the more I dislike the idea of picking what people eat. I definitely don't want to do assigned seating. So now I'm also thinking of creating place cards with guest names and entree selection. How are you going to let them know to pick up their placecard and choose a seat? Would you put a some sort of sign on the table stating that with all the placecards? Also, how are you going to make your placecards?

 

Also, when you send your invites are you sending RSVP cards? I wanted to just have everyone RSVP by email/website/phone because I hear so many stories of people not returning the cards. I'd hate to waste the money on them and not receive them back. However, since I now will be asking for their entree selection I am not sure if I have to do it. I imagine it would be tacky to put that directly on the invitation. Oh I just don't know! I'm the first of my friends to get married and I'm just sooo confused!

I havenâ€t given much thought to the design of the placecard but they will include the guest name and entrée selection.  As far as set-up I will have the placecards  arranged on a table and have some kind of signage directing guest with how to proceed with their seat selection.

 

I will include a  RSVP card with my invite - I have a few guest that are older and donâ€t use smart phones or have personal computers. However, my RSVP cards only request whether or not a guest(s) will be attending and I have a little blurb providing an option to RSVP through our wedding website and to choose their entrée selections. A bit redundant, but Iâ€m trying to make thing easy for my guests to RSVP by giving them options.  I care more about whether or not they are attending than what they want to eat. If a guest doesnâ€t select a preferred entree, than I will have a default option.

 

I still thinking all of this through, but this is what Iâ€ve come up with so far. Let me know what you think or if you come up with a more streamlined way to approach this.

I'll be thinking about it too and I'll let you know what I come up with. Thankfully we have some time but I have a feeling times going to go by fast! I do want to have maracas and thought about tying a name tag on each with the entree selection but I also want to have the cute saying about "shaking the maraca" and it's too much to have 2 tags on the maraca. Would it be too much to have names & entree on one side and the saying about shaking the maraca on the other side?

I like this idea! I think it will work just fine! You will have to have table numbers on each table though.  Instead of using a number we put a picture frame and a location my husband and I had traveled to together. We had a message in a bottle with each persons name and had a tag hanging off with the table location name....just an idea.

 

I did an rsvp card with 3 entrees to choose from and I also asked guests to list any allergies (some people are also vegetarian and gluten free which they have separate menus to choose from).  I had 45 guests at our wedding and almost everyone sent back an rsvp card even those who were not attending (but we did provide them with an envelope and return stamp).  I also had a website which no one rsvp to.

    • 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!
