Hi, Okay so we had a previous issue with my initial ceremony site (long story) and we had to look for another. There are limited options where my wedding is at. We decided on this one because its in the backyard of my cocktail hour and reception venue. I’m not sure what I can do to make the gazebo look “pretty” 

How close it is to the hotel

@ashleyyyg: it appears she was just here 2 days ago, so I suspect she’ll be back. (but… you didn’t actually ask a specific question in your post, so maybe she doesn’t know what to tell you?)

I was wondering if she had any advice on how to pretty up the gazebo.

Hi and Thank you Thank you Thank you for doing this.

I like one of the previous posters is trying to stay under a $10k budget. we are getting married @ Harrington Farm in Princeton, Ma on the off season so the rates are great, we are having about 100-110 guests. Can you give me some creative ideas to help with this. Thank you I so appreciate it

How many bottles of wine would you estimate a wedding of 125 adults would go through in a 5 hr reception, if beer and liquor are also offered with a champagne toast?    Rough mix of guests is maybe half friends in their 30s, half relatives/family friends 50+.  Half the guests will be staying at that location and half a mile down the road.  No specific trends to the crowd.  Wine will be served during dinner.  (I do not need to worry about over purchasing, we’ll only pay for bottles opened, but we have a beer/liquor package and are paying for wine by the bottle in addition so I’m trying to estimate wine drinking to calculate a budget.)

@Phebelasha: Mr.ND and my wedding coordinator are not so hot on the idea of having a seating chart (assigned tables). They think that just reserving a few family/special guest tables will be fine and that everyone else can just filter in and find a seat. Our guestlist is 400!

Am I the crazy one here, or should I stick to my guns and make the seating chart? I just can’t imagine the chaos of people trying to ‘squat’ for a good seat and couples/families having to split up to fill in the empty spots. What’s your take?

@Phebelasha: Thanks! I think once our RSVPs come in we’ll make the final call. The thing is, we’d need to have them find a name card either way to designate their food choice the way that our venue sets it up, so my thoughts were that if I was already doing all that work, I may as well do one more step. We’ll see how ambitious I am when we’re 2 weeks out, but thank you for your comment and for letting me know that it will be ok either way 🙂

@Phebelasha:  Hi and thanks for replying.  We are not sure yet if we will be married outside, it will depend on the weather. I would love some advice on decor. I am already starting to get over budget, this is tough stuff, but so fun
