Hello! Thank you to those of you who responded to my questions around Knollwood Country Club for a reception ... we've decided on Liuna Gardens for both ceremony & reception. I'm wondering if anyone could make suggestions regarding a delicious, inexpensive cake person (I'm going to a cake testing event at "Let Them Eat Cakes" on Monday), a great florist (inexpensive) and somewhere to find those bows that go around the chair covers (burgundy/deep red). I would appreciate any suggestions you may have!

Warmly,
Jen

The Sobey's in Waterdown actually did great flowers for us, at a great price. The woman who does them there is eccentric, but awesome.

Just an FYI ... My fiance and I met with Andy (Andy's Cakes) and had a taste testing of a few of her cakes and they were delicious! If anyone is looking for an inexpensive and delicious cake, you may want to connect with her (out of Mississauga).

On another note, has anyone ever used "Expressions by TOA" in Caledonia for invitations? Any suggestions of who to use to create invitations?

Jen,

Did you find those Red/burgandy ribbons? Where? Do you want to off load them? I am thinking Knollwood This August.

Hi, no I have not found the right colour yet! Although if you're looking yourself for organza material for bows, you could check out: "The Wedding Depot" in Hamilton .. call for an appt. at: 905-545-0373 - they're off of Ottawa Street. We were at a Valentine's Dinner at Liuna Gardens and a woman was there showing pictures of the decorating that she's done for weddings. Apparently the cost of bow rental/set up yourself would be: $.50 per chair or $1.00/chair for her to do it. We looked at Knollwood and thought the barn at the New Golf Course was beautiful. The only reason we didn't book with them was because we were uncomfortable with the Event Coordinator. Hopefully you had a positive experience, as I think it's a beautiful venue.
