Favours: We decided to tackle this a little differently. We didn’t really have your “traditional favours” left on the place settings at the tables. Instead, since 80% of our guests were staying over night at the hotel, we made gift bags that were given out when the guests checked in to their room. Inside it included a personalized bottle of wine, package of klennex, some snacks, 2 bottles of water (also personalized), a book of personalized matches, a door knob hanger, and a little “hangover kit”. We also had a themed candy bar at the reception that guests could grab some candy or chocolate to take away with them.
Biggest Planning Challenges: “Planning the wedding in a different city than we lived at the time. We just organized day trips down, when we would meet with multiple vendors in one day, being organized helped keep the process stress free.”
From one bride to another: “Don’t get stressed out about anything, don’t spend what you can’t afford, and remember that when all is said and done, you are going to be married to your partner, and that is the most important thing.”
