I’m having a daytime wedding too at Sunnybrook, but in October. I haven’t had my tasting yet so am not of much help. 

What did you think of the tasting?  I hadn’t considered a brunch but crepes sound yummy.

I’m also getting married at EOS on July 19 and we’re doing lunch (possibly brunch).  Snisbett – what time is your brunch starting?  I didn’t go to the tasting as I live in Seattle.  I’m going to try to go to the one in early July.  How was the tasting?

We’re trying to DIY all of our own decorating and flowers.  I check several blogs daily for inspiration including: weddingbee (obviously), style me pretty, the knot, snippet & ink, Darcy Miller’s blog and several photographers as well.

Yay for another EOS bride!  I’m also planning to DIY decor and flowers.  Shootingstar, would love to find out how everything works out for you.  I have yet to look for bulk flower vendors so if you have any recommendations, please let me know. 

I’m checking those sites out everyday as well 🙂  The Bride’s Cafe is wonderful as well, there have been some Toronto weddings and vendors featured.

@snisbett: thanks for the tasting recap.  It puts my mind at ease since I won’t be able to go to the tasting myself (sending family instead).

I’m also at McLean House and was told that the designer redoing the conservatory is more conservative and colours will be neutral, like taupe.  I was actually hoping for some more vibrant colours but let’s see.  They might also get new chairs for the reception room but this was not confirmed the last time I spoke with EOS.  I’m really looking forward to seeing the redesign.   

In terms of decor I was thinking of renting coloured linens in addition to having simple floral centerpieces.  I think this is a cheaper way of creating ambiance and tying in the wedding colours.  Floral centerpieces on white linens can only do so much I think.  

I love peonies-wish I was having a spring/early summer wedding.  Your bouquets are going to be lovely!  I’ll definitely check out Bloomex. Would you mind sharing your florist resource? 

Is anyone having their ceremony onsite in the garden?  I’ve been thinking hard how to dress up those plastic green lawn chairs.  Any ideas?  I would love to scatter rose petals along the aisle but that’s not allowed 🙁

Hi,

 

I’m having my reception at the EOS next September. I think the rooms are beautiful as they are but may consider adding a few decorations. Is anyone else decorating?  Did you find the timeline difficult considering that guests can only arrive at 6:00 p.m.?
