St. Malo Provincial Park Amphitheatre
BBQ reception to follow
The Province of Manitoba has made entry to all Provincial parks free for 2010. So guests will not have to pay to get into our wedding. Yay! :)
We will a nice map of the park along with parking spaces and directions to the amphitheatre as soon as we have one. We are going to talk to the parks person and ask about signage - but we will definitely have people directing you where to go. It's a small park though so it shouldn't be too hard to find ;)
We will add information as the wedding plans progress :)
We'd better add a note about dress attire. Please DO NOT dress up! You'll be sitting on wooden logs during the ceremony and your good clothes will be ruined. Terry and the groomsmen are wearing t-shirts and shorts. The bridesmaids will be wearing beachwear (top and shorts). We don't expect or want anyone to dress up all fancy for this thing. After the ceremony we invite you to suntan, take a swim and enjoy the BBQ, so bring your bathing suit if you like (or wear it under your beach-type clothes).
Here's a picture of the amphitheater where we'll be doing the ceremony. You see why nice clothes is not a good idea? It's so awesome! I'm so happy!
The big day is less than a week away!
Terry made a nice map (including coordinates for those with GPS) to the park. Here is the link: Terry's Google Maps (Winnipeg to St. Malo)
I'll attach a picture of the park layout on the event page so that you know where the amphitheatre and parking is. I can't seem to figure out how to attach it to this message.
The actual wedding ceremony will take place at 1:00 in the amphitheatre. There is no "bride" or "groom" side. Sit where you like. Remember to wear beach clothes as you will be sitting on wooden logs.
After the ceremony we will be having pictures taken and a BBQ. You're welcome to go for a swim, eat, chat, hang out. Or if you have other Saturday plans, we won't mind if you want to duck out. We have a few picnic tables being set up near the amphitheatre for out of town guests, but if you're in town we ask that you bring lawnchairs or picnic blankets.
Some guests have inquired about wedding presents. Terry and I have been together for 10 years. We have a house and two lovely kids. We have everything we could possibly want, so we ask that if you really want to bring a present you can always bring something to reception to help make it better. Example: I have one guest making the wedding cake and another bringing the drinks. It makes the day go easier for us because we don't have to remember to pack every little thing. You can email or phone one of us for suggestions if you like. But again, no presents are required!
We're looking forward to celebrating our future with all our friends and family!
See you on Saturday!
