Chose My Venuee Woohoo! The Westmount Country Club

I know there will be ups and downs. But I was so impresses with the decor, and the manor that the rep conducted himslef in. At first I was a bit afraid, he was wearing so much Gold lol but he ended up being very accomodating.

My fiance loved The Westmount and it was close to our families. From destination wedding to local wedding.

We are doing March 2011 too, what a big jump. How things change during wedding planning, its so funny.

Now I have my venue, my photographer, I am seeing my florist next week and I went dress shopping and think I narrowed it down because I love it, I just have to buy it!

    Hi ahhndrea,

    What's your date, and what room are you doing? I just love that it comes with the up-lighting and the chairs don't you.

    That's thrilling! Sounds like you are right on target!  What was the Sales Rep name at the Westmount..  I love your comment about the too much gold on the guy....

    When we met with our guy there my Fiance whispered "He is too Guido for me babe"... I looked at him and said "umm you forget I am 100% Italian BABE!"


    We didn't choose there, but it made out top 3!

    Thank you MissChristineC

    We are working with Bobby Gollucci. He is super nice, and I feel bad because I already called him with a disaster that i had in my mind. Our wedding is on a Friday MArch 25th and if your Catholic, there are some Fridays that you can't eat meat. It's not Good Friday so we decided to stay with our date and leave it alone but I got all scared for a day or two.

    Congrats! 

    Destinations Bride- If it is during Lent, you could always request special dispensation from your bishop and let any catholic guests know ahead of time that guests of the wedding have been given the go ahead.

    I'm getting married there in July. We have the continental room.  I just fell in love from the minute I walked in the door.  Anthony is our guy.  If you have any questions, please ask!  Which florist are you booking?

    Hi -

    We're getting married on April 3rd and we're in the Continental room. We're doing everything indoors in that room - we both loved the big windows as the backdrop for the ceremony.

    Let me know how the florist outings go...I haven't done that yet. My sister is getting married next weekend so we've put our planning on hold until that passes (although I do have my dress).

    Best of luck!

    Destination Bride -

    I totally understand how planning changes. We originally wanted to get married in a tiny ceremony on Kauai (we had been there before and loved it) but then worried about the time/financial constraints on the family. Then we were looking at San Diego, but we ended up at the Westmount, less than 10 miles from my parents house.


    what photog are you using? I have like 6 in mind but haven't been able to narrow it yet...

    Not to jack this thread, but anyone getting married at the westmount on a Friday?  I am, but wondering if anyone has experience with the traffic at that time.  I am kind of mad at myself that I did not think of this beforehand.  Nothing I can do about it now, but just wondering if anyone has been through this before.

    Also, Destination Bride, congrats on booking a venue... it's a HUGE relief!!

    I hate to tell you that traffic can be really really bad in that spot - I grew up around there and have spent a good deal of time stuck trying to get through. We have a late Sunday afternoon wedding and are a little concerned about people coming from the East (the 3/46 merge is what backs up)

    Thanks Ahhndrea, I definitely think it will be bad.  I grew up near that area as well, but never really drive through there on fridays.  I am wondering if going through 80 will be a better alternative or if anyone has given their guest alternative routes.  I am also trying to push back the ceremony time to make things a bit easier (I hope).

    I do usually drive by that area on Sundays around noon and I noticed that more than not, that merge does not get too backed up around that time.  When it does get backed up, it's not the worst.  When it rains though, that is another story.
