Beuty Windding Dress

I have three bridesmaids, my best friends Jasmine, Melissa and Rachel. I'm between 5'6"-5'7" and they are all well over 5'9"! I'm going to have one tall bridal party haha. I picked out strapless, floor length gowns with a small train in the colour champagne. They all look phenomenal in the gown. I've heard of brides who want to make the bridesmaids look like crap so they can look better, but I want them all to look HOT!

I've also picked out the hall. Well, ACTUALLY, my Dad picked out the hall. I went to visit it yesterday when I had my wedding tasting and it is absolutely breathtaking! Good job Dad! I wish I would have taken pictures, but there was a wedding going on at the time so I didn't bother. Here is photo taken off their website:

Food wise we will be having a buffet. Soup will be plated first followed by the buffet where there will be a ton to choose from: rolls, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, sea food tray, caesar salad, greek salad, pasta salad, spring mix, chicken w/ mushroom sauce, prime rib, salmon w/ hollandaise, roast potatoes, rice, cooked seasonal vegetables, various cakes, pastries, pies...etc. It was ridiculous how much food we got to sample at the tasting and the chef sat down with us and discussed everything we choose along with his recommendations. I'm really starting to get excited!

As for design and decor, I have some ideas, but definitely want to hire a decorator. I want to stick with neutral colours white and champagne. I was thinking of having flowers submerged in water vases as centerpieces. Something like this picture below (not these flowers though):

My cousin offered to DJ my wedding for free (booze) with two of his friends. They do clubs in Toronto and it will be nice for my parents to not have to worry about that expense (they are footing the bill). As more and more of the plans get finalized I will keep you updated! I will most likely be having an outdoor gazebo wedding, weather permitting of course, so lets cross our fingers that July 23rd will be sunny (and not too hot since my dress is super heavy haha)!
