Checks this week! and a Hotel recommendation for North Haven area

I'm happy to say I've acquired some checks :)
Excited for my hair trial with Janice from Salon Naomi next Thursday!!
and I booked two hotels close to my venues, I have to give a mention to one of them which is the Holiday Inn in North Haven. Corrine was professional and friendly and the thing I love about this hotel is that they give welcome gift bags to your guests who check in. When I read the contract it stated included in the bags were champagne, chocolate truffles and a breakfast discount coupon. The little details is what I love! We also reserved the jacuzzi bridal suite for two days, the day before the wedding so I can relax the evening before and also get ready with my girls in it and then the night after the wedding for FH and I.
A couple more checks, I finally put together my wedding website and created our registries!
Very excited to knock these things off my to do list.. now if only choosing the Photog and Videographer were easy :/

    [QUOTE]@Mona8, You enjoyed the bridal suite? It looks nice but I only saw one photo. <strong>Do you think its roomy enough for me and 6 girls to get hair and make-up done in? </strong>@ mrsrutkowsk, Yes we are getting married at Cascade. I def recommend this hotel, they told me its only 15 mins away from the venue and they offer free shuttle service for your guests. If you're looking for a budget hotel, I also booked with Days Inn which is .3 miles from Cascade, and they were half the price per night then Holiday Inn. HTH!!

    Oh man I hate to be the downer about the Holiday Inn but we had a really bad experience with them! The rooms & the stay were fine, since we got our bridal suite comped, even though the rooms are a bit run down. As you know there are only 2 hotels in that area, we went with that one since it had the bar open late and the other did not. We were told that we could go back to the bar after, didn't need to reserve it as it would be open still. I had tons of guests, bridal party etc. that went over after the wedding to find the bar closed! I specifically talked to the manager multiple times about making sure it was open, not needing to reserve etc. Needless to say they tried to accomodate and it worked out fine, we ended up taking over their lobby. They provided up with mixers for the alcohol we had left from the party bus and gave us some beer. We ordered food from the diner near by and still had a blast. Needless to say I was not happy about the bar situation but was just glad that we all still got to hang out after!

    Just double check with them if you plan on using the bar after. Since I was told that they are very accomodating to wedding parties and stay open late night for them! Ummm no so much! LOL
