Our Wedding

Having a wedding in September is a great choice due to better weather. The weather may not be nice and sunny but it definitely isn't sweltering hot! Your guests and you will thank you later for holding a wedding in the fall. The weather was great for us and it was perfect.
Oakville is a beautiful place to get married with lot's of options for pictures (for free) along the Lakeshore. Gorgeous view.
(There are places that you can pay to get a permit to take pictures in Oakville, but it is not worth the price and you never know if you will get rained out and not even use the permit).

J & J Photography

The price of the photography is great at $1295 for the whole package including a wedding photo album, all of the pictures taken at the wedding, 6-8 hrs of coverage, 2 photographers. It was definitely a great price for the service, BUT....the issue is that it has been 6.5 months since our wedding and we havent received our photos yet!! We dont have any memories of the day and we have nothing to share with our family. We had to send our thank you cards with no pictures because our friends and family would have to wait a year to get a thank you card if we waited for the pictures to be ready!
I wouldnt recommend them!

Vanderburgh Flowers and Gifts Georgetown
Brampton, ON

Great florist for a great price. I went to see 5 florists before picking Vanderburgh Flowers and I was so happy with the choice.
They got me exactly what I wanted for under my budget. I told them how much I wanted to spend and they made it work.
They delivered on time and all went well (except breaking one of my vases, but they replaced it with another).

Wedding Day Beauty

Coming from outside of Oakville for this wedding, I had to choose a salon for hair and makeup based on websites and reviews. I chose this salon based on price, great service on the phone and a great website.
They were very friendly on the phone (when many other salons weren't) and great when I went to see the salon.
The services were great and both myself and by bridesmaids looked great! I had long extensions to work with and they did a great job with them.
The price varies based on the level of stylist (which is great for all budgets), so the prices were very affordable (based on other prices from salons in Oakville). I paid extra myself to get the owner of the salon and she was amazing with her 30 yrs experience in the industry.
I have since made this salon my hairdresser because they were so good!

Ceremony Sites

Beautiful church in Oakville! Great detail in the front of the church which is perfect for pictures. They have a nice garden outside that can be used for pictures onsite.
They include a wedding planner to plan the details of the ceremony and plan the ceremony details, which is nice but she was a little slow at returning calls and emails for my liking. All went well the day of and everything was perfect with this church.

Le Dome Banquet Hall
Oakville, ON
Reception Sites

Great venue for a practical price. We chose Le Dome after our family got married there 4 years ago and it was the best wedding we had ever been to. We loved it just as much!
Great food and LOT'S OF IT! We got the Italian Menu with 5 courses and it was so much food for our guests. Everyone raved about it!
The coordinators were accommodating to our needs but we found that we had to ask about all the little details and had to be very organized, otherwise we wouldn't know what we were getting. We had to ask a lot of questions because they weren't specific on what comes in your package and what you are responsible for. If you are going into this planning process uneducated, don't rely on this venue to help! You must know what you want and ask if they can do it for you.
We had little support from outside sources and had little knowledge on how to plan a wedding, so it was tough for us to find out what we needed to do. Endless research and organization really helped!
The room was beautiful and there was lot's of space. Both rooms in this facility are separate with their own washrooms, so there is no guest confusion and no sharing of washrooms between wedding parties. One complaint is that there is no seperate washroom for the bride (bridal suite) and I had to try to lift my huge dress up in a regular stall = not fun!
