Also, the guide she sent me is from 2012. Does anyone have the 2013 wedding info guide? 

Nevermind! I found the guide on their website and answered all of my own questions. The one Pilar sent me is a little different then the newer one online.

 

Sorry!

Shannonmarie - Even though my wedding isn't until 2013, all my pricing is based on the 2012 rates since I booked in January of 2012 and 2013 wasn't published yet. I don't know when you booked, but you may want to confirm which rates apply.

Oh! I did not know that! I booked in December of 2012 so I am guessing 2012 rates will apply to me as well. That's great info to have. I have not communicated with Pilar since I booked so thank you for helping me so much!

 

Does that also include the pricing for the package itself?

Yes. As long as you booked prior to 2013 rates being published, than package prices and add-ons are based on 2012 rates that she sent you. This was one of the first questions that I asked and I have this confirmed in an email.

I saw a post from DelSor to try for your ceremony 1.5 hrs prior to sunset to have the best sunlight for photos (and also avoid peak-day heat!).  Check online for when the sunset is projected for your date and that should help you figure it out!

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.
I asked pilar if I could have three menu choices (fish, beef, and vegetarian) and she said two was the max???? How early did you give her the quantities of each selection? Thanks!

I also gace my guests 3 choices. I never asked Pilar about it so maybe that is why it wasn't a problem for me. I can't imagine that it is an issue to offer 3 choices.

I got married in May and we had our ceremony at 5:30. There was still plenty of light but it wasn't too hot either. We had our cocktail hour from 6:30 (maybe even 615ish) until 7:30. By the time we walked over to our reception it was getting dark. Not sure if that helps because I am not sure what time of the year you are getting married but that was our time frame.

I have reserved the Bamboo Room for our wedding on April 29, 2013. I originally asked for the Garden - which Pilar has just recently told me is not available the week I am there (April 27th - May 2nd). She could not confirm why, but said that the Groups Department has it blocked off... She said she won't know what is going on until closer to the date... 

My questions for someone is about switching the reception location. I have the Bamboo Room booked. I do not know exactly how many people will be coming to the wedding (a lot of people have said that they MAY be coming and haven't booked yet). If I do not have many guests coming I would prefer to have my reception on the Ocean Front Terrace. Otherwise I am fine in the Bamboo Room. Pilar explained "it is not possible to block both areas because we do 2 weddings per date plus one renewal of vows". Has anyone heard about two weddings happening at the same time? Ie. One in the Bamboo Room and one on the Ocean Front Terrace???

    • 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!
