The FYI on DIY

The term DIY, which is affectionately known as Do It Yourself, is a great approach in some aspects of your wedding. Invitations, guest favours, and table seating cards, seating arrangement boards or centre piece embellishments are great ways to add your personal touch, all of which can be prepared well before your wedding day.

There are some aspects of your special day, however, which take so much more effort and time than most people realize.

We have a wealth of experience in all of the potentially stressful areas of your wedding day. These are just a small sampling of the things we do so that you can relax and focus on enjoying yourselves:

Covered Dining Terrace is decorated with white pillar candles, white tulle and fresh flowers, large event tent (in case it rains, is windy, etc.), tables, chairs (for ceremony and reception), bar tents and supplies, tablecloths, napkins, silverware, glasses, plates and decorations: including wedding arch, wedding aisle decor, bride entrance tent, tent lanterns and fresh flowers, signing & guest book tables and decorated foot bridge are coordinated and set up the day before and the day of the event. We ensure there are sufficient lighting, power and washroom facilities. Event Coordinator is available on site to make certain the schedule of events (we provide) is performed in a timely fashion to ensure the event moves seamlessly. The day after the celebration, the above-mentioned supplies and rentals are gathered (or disassembled), accounted for and packed for pick up by the rental company. That’s just the start, permits, licences, catering, serving staff and bartenders . . .

We truly care about your experience at Alderwood. We want to ensure that your special day is as stress-free as possible, which is why we insist upon taking care of all of the duties you shouldn't have to, after all it is Your Wedding Day!
