    Working with Provisions, especially Connie, made planning and executing our Wedding easier and more care free than I could have imagined.

    Our experience at Lower Fort Garry was overall very positive. Connie was great in the planning process, was timely in her responses and very helpful with ideas. The overall look of the venue was absolutely beautiful for our wedding day. We did find however in comparison with ... View more other venues, LFG had a lot of hidden costs that we didn't realize how much they would add up for our budget - where other locations did a lump sum amount either per person that included everything or a venue cost. They were posted and made aware of, but didn't realize how much it would affect our budget. For example: $3 / chair, set up fee for chairs, $10 / person for linens and cutlery, rental fee for microphone and PA system, $1000 for lights, $1000 for a dance floor etc etc. Just made more of an impact then we realized. Other pieces of feedback that may be beneficial for other weddings would be: Open up both sides of the buffet regardless of size (we were told our was too small to have both open - 100 people) , which would make the dinner portion go a lot quicker. By the time our last tables had gotten food, most of the others were done already. They also ran out of meatballs. Overall we had a very positive experience, and hope this feedback will help for future events!
