@vancouverpetunia haha I know right?! I didn't see it either but now that they've both said it, I can't get it out of my head. 

 

I have 51 guests:

- 10 are bridal party members - it will be squishy to stand but I think we could manage

- 8 are children many who are too young to need a chair

 

From the photo it looks like they have 6 rows of 6 chairs so that would potentially work or we may need to add one more row…which I don't think is an issue but AF might just say we've capped it at a certain number and that's that. 

 

Ceili Cottage is in Leslieville on Queen East. They have really good food and great selection of beer that Sean likes :)  - their gourmet mac and cheese is awesome!

Oh, Leslieville! Lots of great spots there. I assumed somewhere outside of the city when I envisioned a place with a yurt! Now I like it even more. (I'm a sucker for a good Irish pub myself.)

As for the Sky Terrace, yeah that might be tight, but it's worth asking. To me it looks like there may only be 5 rows (but it's really hard to say for sure) but I'd be more worried about the 10 attendants. In finding space for them, you may have to push the chairs back further which may be a no-go. But ask your WC. Maybe she can figure something out. I hope so!

Yea I'm a little iffy about it too - I have a feeling they won't go for it but I'm going to ask anyway. I'm also going to see when I get there in Sept. I've also heard that the staff on site are far more accommodating than the WCs sometimes. 

 

We love Leslieville! We live in East York, close by to the Beaches and Leslieville - love the restaurants and bars in the area.  :) Ceili Cottage is also pretty close to my office! Hoping it all works out with both the location and the officiant!

So the guy from Ceili Cottage got back to me yesterday and he said we can definitely use the yurt for our legal ceremony!! Yay!! We're going to use it half an hour before they officially open and then stay afterwards to celebrate just the two of us! So happy this is working out! Now we just have to pick a date and contact the officiant! :D

Hey we live so close to each other!!! I live in Riverdale and work in the Beaches...My first Apartment was in East York on Virginia Ave! Ceili Cottage is such a cool place and from what I have read of your thread its fits your personality perfectly! Congrats on getting it for your legal ceremony!

@Meandhim Whaat?! Such a small world - we're so close to each other!! I work very close to Queen and Broadview. My fiance is from east coast as well (PEI) so we have that connection too! ;) If you ever want to get together to grab a drink and vent over wedding stuff or talk planning - let me know!

@snswedding2016

 

We should definitely meet up and grab a drink or coffee or something...I say we do it sometime soon when its warm enough to sit on a patio but before the business of summer kicks in? I will PM you :)

 

Your wedding is after mine and you are so far ahead of me in planning! I need to gear up!

@Meandhim yes can't wait for a little warmer patio weather!! Don't worry about your planning - you're well on your way and love all your ideas so far! I'm terrified my planning will come to a grinding halt when the summer hits. I get so busy at work and this summer is supposed to be the busiest summer we've had in a long time, which is great for paying for the wedding but just not for planning it. haha

 

let's talk and we'll plan something soon!! :)

Ahh! just saw this now. Cute photo of you guys celebrating - you both look so happy together!!

 

I know what you mean about the beach.. I originally was dead set on having a wedding on the beach even with there being no difference in cost at my resort to use the sky deck. I heard from past brides that there was a big lack of privacy.. so we decided to go with the sky deck. I'm happy we are though because it photographs so beautifully and it's not totally 'typical' either.

If you can somehow squeeze the sky deck cost into your budget, i'd say go with that. The Oriola Grill looks really pretty as well! I love how those photos showcase it.

 

Where is this Ceili Cottage you speak of? It's a beautiful spot and so intimate and warm. Love it!!

@perianjay ya I have a feeling we might just bite the bullet and pay the extra fee. We might be able to move some things around in our budget so that we don't have to pay that much more. I was looking at the decor package we added and there are a couple things on there that I can get rid of if we change our ceremony venue to the sky deck it won't end up costing us an extra $1700 to our existing budget but maybe more like $900. 

 

Ceili Cottage is a really cool place - love the feel of it in the winter and the summer. There is a great patio in the summer where the yurt is in the winter. It is in Leslieville (on Queen East between Jones and Greenwood).  :)
