- Wedding: April 2012
I didn’t think moving the wedding date up would affect me as much as it has… before I knew it the holidays had come and gone and I haven’t done squat!
My wedding is April 1st and we will be arriving in Niagara Falls on March 30th. This wouldn’t be so bad except that Fiance and I have never BEEN there and don’t know WHAT to do for certain parts of the trip to make it special for all.
Not to mention, several people have now decided to stay at different hotels (some stateside, some Canadian). Fiance and I are staying at the Hilton Fallsview in Ontario. Now I’m freaking out wondering if I will make it to each hotel in time to give the clerk the goodie bags so the housekeeping staff can place them in the guest rooms!
Now to ice the cake (so to speak), we are desparately trying to decide on where we will host our group dinner after the ceremony. It’s off peak season, so Top of the Falls will NOT be open (that was our original plan when we were supposed to get married in August).
I already contacted the Hard Rock Cafe thinking we could keep it simple and inexpensive, right?
NOPE! $16 pp for a hamburger entree with fries!?! You have GOT to be joking!
As a side note, I got our wedding website up and running and have received great reviews from guests/bridal party. HOWEVER, as I was researching area attractions, I couldn’t find a lot. How funny, right? I mean, this is one of the natural wonders of the world. Due to the season, though, a majority of the Niagara related attractions are not open. I have found an aquarium and a wax museum of history. Hm.
So, BIG FAVOR from you guys….
If any of you could recommend:
**A group dinner location that will hold approximately 45 people that won’t break the bank (we had all actually planned to pay separately)
**Neat attractions for me to put up on the website so people have stuff to do (that will be operational March 30th-April 1st)
**Ideas for how to ace this goodie bag delivery thing with the multiple hotel obstacle
I would really REALLY appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
