Hi everyone! First post!
Our wedding is going to be at the Lakeside Rose Garden on September 8th this year (please don't rain!!)
Anyway, I read on a separate thread back in 2009 that seating is limited to 75 people - does anyone know if that means the chairs are supplied by the park? Is it part of the booking fee? Chairs are so expensive coming from Party Apart after store hours.
Which brings me to my next question. Our ceremony will be at 7:30. I wanted it to be dark to take advantage of lighting opportunities - does anyone know what's allowed as far as lighting and using your own decor? I wanted to put some floating light balls or something in the pools in the center of the aisles, nothing messy, just something to reflect off the water, and maybe some candles. Also, how lit up is the garden at night? I would go out there myself and look, but it's winter right now and I'm not sure they would even bother to light it up when there's snow on the ground...
Any other helpful tips would be greatly appreciated! We are hoping to have a quick ceremony and dessert buffet on premises. I know most people just have the ceremony there, but we're on a budget
