No idea about Treacy.

Eastern Golf Club is a nice reception venue and is reasonably priced.

I've been to some conferences and thing at Treacy and the catering was always nice... no weddings though sorry.

If you want around the 100 mark maybe look at entree main and serve your cake for dessert, or a friday or a sunday? We looked at both Roslyn Court and Waterfront docklands (who we ended up with) and both were accommodating of package modifications to meet our budget...

We have delivered a lot of cakes to Treacy Reception, it is really lovely. The staff are very professional, and the ambiance is impressive.

Hi girls,
FH & I are planning ahead...as in not engaged yet (he's saving for my rather $$$ taste in rings!) but hope to marry Oct/Nov next year.
We want a small wedding (40-50 people) in the Yarra, a proper weekend with a casual dinner Friday night at a brewry, optional wine tour Saturday 10-3 then wedding 530-1130pm at a winery & reception to follow, then a drop by brunch at the huge house we plan on renting on the Sunday. It will just be our immediate family, aunts & uncles (no cousins) & 5 of our closest friends each & their partners.
First question-are these too many activities planned? They are all optional...but some people may feel compelled to attend everything? We just thought the winery tour (we wont attend) might be nice as lots of out of state guests (including all of my family & friends).

Then, FH wants an engagement party to invite our friends and family friends. On my side (in Perth) we will have it in my parents large garden, just a BBQ lunch,but very special with lots of flowers & awesome food (my parents are great cooks & we will order other things in).
FH's parents are less well off than mine & have a very small house. So we will pay for our Melbourne engagement party (my parents will be paying for the Perth one & contributing most of the money to the wedding, we will pay for the rest although FH's parents will probably pay for something small like the cars & flowers).
So...the Melbourne engagement party is for his friends (my Sydney friends will be invited too but doubt many will come) & his family. I don't want to spend too much money on it. Any suggestions for venues? FH would like a place with a dance floor. I am happy to have it in a bar, rent a hall & get caters etc. Just a fun atmosphere!
Open to ideas!
Thanks girls xo

Thanks Seaweed but now a moot point as our family has put a lot of pressure on us to marry with at least 60-70 guests. Sigh.
So no engagement party!

Hi all

I was wondernig if anyone had been to a wedding at the Mandalay in Nortcote?
I've found their website, and their prices seem to be reasonable - way too reasonable! Like, $85 a head on a Saturday night for a sitdown/alternating meal.

That being said, does anyone know any other places which are roughly that price?

Anjelik, to put your mind at rest The Mandalay was a very popular venue in this forum a few years back. It hasn't been mentioned for quite awhile but all the brides who had their weddings there were rapt with it without exception. The best way to find out more, is to arrange a tasting of the food and go over what that price includes with the function coordinator.

We went to look at that place, it is lovely if a bit dated in parts.. in the end it was simply too small for us... I think it would be nice with 80 people or less...

We ended up at Roselyn Court and cannot fault it (if a touch more expensive), the Centre in Ivanhoe is another good one at the $90 to $115 mark...

Does anyone know of a darn good hairdresser, probably more around the Dandenong and Frankston areas, who specialises or has a good rep doing 50's style hair?

Hi Ladies,

We have booked an appointment for the Amstel & Ranfurlie golf clubs in Cranbourne. I can't seem to find much information or reviews on them anywhere. Has anyone ever been to a wedding at either of these venues?

Thanks :)

We looked at them and are planning to have a proper look one day. My friend had her 21st there last year, and said it was really nice but obviously that's a completely different sort of party :lol:

Hi!

My partner and I are getting married at Roselyn Court in Essendon on the 10th November 2012. I'm just wondering if anyone has any good ideas of where we can go to have photographs taken if it rains on the day? At the moment we're planning on going to Queens Park, but I want a wet weather back up just in case. I don't know the area that well, and nor does my photographer, so I'm hoping someone can give me some good ideas. :D

Thank you thank you. I don't know what I'd do without you guys, seriously.
At the moment I'm completely unaware of what I should be doing. I feel like I have nooo idea what's going on. I'm just trying to work off the Show and Tell list so that I feel like there is some kind of structure so I don't forget anything.
And I'm trying to get everything booked before we move so that we know how much money we have to save and how much we can splurge on furniture. CHAOS IN MY BRAIN! :e_wall:
