Island Wedding? Getting there takes advance planning - and patience

Toronto News: First summer weekend tests your ferry patience - thestar.com
"...Here’s one sure sign of summer in Toronto — ferry lineups. Thousands of men, women and children waited in long lines to board a ferry to attend one of the many events scheduled at the Toronto Islands, including the Dragon Boat races.. At 1:30 p.m. the line of people waiting to board stretched east of Yonge St. Would-be passengers shuffled on their feet and shielded themselves from the mid-day sun with everything from magazines and folded newspapers to wide brimmed hats and umbrellas. Wait times weren’t the only thing on the rise — the cost of parking in the area crept up to as much as $30. Parking in the area usually costs between $10 and $12.
The thick crowds of people waiting to travel to the islands prompted many to pay a bit extra to ride in one of several water taxi services operating throughout the day.
[and the water taxis line was also 45 minutes]. 

 Remember, even if you and your advance party make it to the Island in time, your guests, witnesses, photographer, and OFFICIANT, may not!  Ferries also leave unpredictably - sometimes before the time listed.

THE ONLY WAY to manage this is:
a)  Choose a weekday
b)  Buy paper ferry tickets IN ADVANCE, and buy them ON A WEEKDAY, FOR the weekday.
