I did the same I loaded up everything in our planning session and then cut out the things that we didn't really need or talked my DH into them being really important to our wedding day, the chair covers for example

Thanks, I love the lamps too. I can't believe they are only $10, I'm thinking about having them at the pre-reception too if the cylinders are alot more.

Just out of interest , how much is the tulle swagging in the WP?

Yeah, I'm hoping it's not too much over the $10,000 and then I may be able to get DF to let me keep everything, I've got a feeling that my table decor is gonna cost a fortune, but I love flowers and stuff and I really wanna keep it as it is!

I didn't ask about the swagging for some reason. On the wishbook it says $150 but I don't know if that's for both sides or what. I'll let you know when I get my BEO. Or you could let me know when you have your PS.

fortunately for me, DF has picked the chilvari chairs so he can't chunter at me about those... just everything else! I think I'm gonna try and choose a fairly inexpensive menu, that way I can keep all my decor and stuff.

I did look at those, then I ended up with too many choices and got all confused!

So, I have kinda picked a menu, it's gonna be a buffet and I don't know if I've picked too much food or not so here it is. Let me know if you think it's too much, I want to keep it around $100pp. I am having the anti-pasto for the pre-reception and not doing dessert because we are having the DP.

-Mushroom filled pasta with vegetable-sherry broth, leeks, red peppers and gruyere (veg)

-Pan-seared crab cakes with lemon-dill creme

-Caesar salad with parmesan and croutons (veg)

-Olive oil grilled vegetables (veg)

-Parmesan-crusted chicken breast with basil mashed potatoes and mushroom cream

-Creamy parmesan and goats cheese risotto topped with gremolata (veg)

-Mahi Mahi steamed in banana leaves with mango salsa

-New York strip steak with Merlot and black pepper reduction, balsamic crimini mushrooms and roasted shallots.

-Fingerling potatoes

-Sourdough rolls and rustic breads

Has anyone tried this food, any opinions on how it tastes etc?

Your menu sounds yummy.

I tasted the Crab cakes with lemon dill sauce and they were incredible!!!! The sauce really makes them taste great!!! I am crazy about crab cakes and they were the best I have had.

The Parm crusted chicken you selected I tasted also and it was so good!!!!

I tasted the Mahi Mahi but with a vanilla bean sauce which was excellent. I don't like fish but I actually really liked it. It wasn't super fishy tasting. It was a very subtle taste. I liked it alot!

Do you want to keep it $100pp including the pre-reception food?

I'm sure our dinner was only $80 person.

I had the Parmesan-crusted chicken, photo in my TR, it was fantastic like all our food.

Great to know the food's gonna be good! It's so hard to know what to pick when you haven't actually tasted any, so its good to hear other people's opinions.

I would like to keep it at $100 with the pre-reception which is $14, but I wouldn't be totally upset if just the main meal was $100pp. I just seem to have loads of food! I'll take a look at your TR to see pics of your food.

OMG I got my floral BEO back... it's $4238!!!

Kinda what I was expecting really, but not what I wanted!!! The problem is there isn't really anything on it that I want to take out. I have to wait for my other BEO now, then I can see if I really need to!

What about doing the following to cut costs.

Could you remove the bridesmaids flowers and give them all the wands? This is something I did to cut the cost.

Sway ivory tulle on pews - Is this something you really need/want? I only had a unity arrangement in the WP as I think it is stunning as it is.

I didn't order any pre-reception flowers on my tables but the GF did put a single rose in a vase on the tables at no cost to me. I didn't think anyone would notice if we didn't have flowers on those tables.

I also wouldn't bother with the chairs in the pre-reception just use theirs, I personally think the dinner table chairs are more important.

Will post more later my dinner is now ready!

I agree with B2B-2008 and use the Floral Wands for your girls. I did this for my three and they just loved them.

Not sure what Unity Candle you are referring to but if it is the Mickey one that Disney sells just let me let you know that it is huge. We were considering it but when we saw how large it was we decided to get our own and bring it down.

I don't remember where your pre-reception is but why not cut out the special chairs there.

I would get rid of the charger plates and the special chairs at the dessert party also.

Linda

Can you cut BM's floral down? I am doing wands with 3 roses for $36.

I think you could cut out the tulle and it would still be pretty.

And maybe the prereception stuff as well?

And the Dessert party stuff, I went to a site visit and saw the setup with just table clothes and cylinders and it was really, really nice just like that.

It all sounds really beautiful but I think it will still be beautiful if you trim it down a little.

I also agree with Linda the unity candle is huge but we got it and love it.

Staged Exit - I cut out the cones and used the basket with petals.

Charger plates - I love these but just to let you know they took ours away with the starter.

Chairs - would normal chairs with covers be cheaper?

Do you really need the pixie dust overlays?

I would also use the Epcot chairs at the dessert party.

What you need to decided it what is most important to you. But Disney Floral will be happy to help you cut down the costs if it is something you really need and want to do.
