Back to the drawing board!!!

So, my wedding is going to be very small, totally casual & relaxed and very personal, we are getting married in Jasper because it is my favourite place in the world, we got engaged there and we celebrated our twin's first birthdays there too.

I had the idea of having a BBQ/fancy picnic at the log cabins that we regularly stay at (can't get much more 'Canadian' for our UK guests!!) and found a lady that does catering who was happy to do a lovely buffet picnic + BBQ meats & fish.
I contacted the cabin owner to see if they would allow us to do this on site and they've said no!!! :(

It would have been so perfect for the sort of day we had planned....thinking hats back on !!

Aww, Boo!!!  I'm sorry they said no.  I'm sure you will find something else though.  And it's going to be awesome!

Aww Im sorry they said no too. What was there reason? Do they just not allow cooking done on their premises or you have to use a specific caterer?

They just said 'we can't accommodate a reception'. I replied saying its not really a 'proper' reception, just a group having a BBQ/picnic but they still said no. They hire out gas BBQs on site so that's not the problem. Silly really because everyone is OOT so they would have had guaranteed bookings, and I'm going to Jasper this summer with a friend and have booked to stay elsewhere just because they've upset me!!

There are plenty of places that we can go instead, I just thought it would be nice because that's where we stayed when we got engaged & for our boy's 1st birthdays - its special to us.....well it was before they were big meanies!! Lol

Thank you!! Luckily there are so many beautiful spots in Jasper that it will be fine, it just would have been nice to add it to our list of reasons why that spot is so special to us!

How are your plans going??

My plans are moving slowly....I am in the midst of helping my friend plan her 40th birthday party-a formal affair, so that is taking alot of my time and energy but its been fun, because Ive been able to try new ideas with her.   It will be this Friday so after that, I can go back to thinking about the wedding.  Ive left my ladies to find dresses, our first dressing shopping soiree is not until August so they have some time.  Other than that, just searching for inspiration.

What if you called back and pretended to be someone else? Just say you're going to have a birthday party or family reunion, see what they say. Maybe they heard reception and thought "Oh good, a bunch of drunks"?
