When searching for your wedding vendors, you want to find ones that are reliable, reputable, and trustworthy.

Interview and meet with vendors in person to make sure you like them and they like you; you need and want that special connection.

Some of the vendors you may hire for your wedding are:

  • Wedding Planner
  • Officiant
  • Caterer/Catering Manager/Venue Coordinator
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • Entertainment (Band, DJ, Strings, Steel Drums, Saxophone, Guitar, Flute, etc.)
  • Lighting
  • Photo Booth
  • Linens
  • Furniture Rental (chairs, tables, lounge seating, etc.)
  • Floral and Décor
  • Cake Baker and Specialty Desserts
  • Guest Accommodations
  • Invitations and Other Printed Materials
  • Calligraphy
  • Favors, Gift Baskets, Gift Bags, etc.
  • Hair and Makeup Artists
  • Transportation

Your wedding day is one of the most important events in your lifetime; you want everything to go as perfectly as possible. Wedding vendors help make your wedding day vision come to life.

A successful wedding depends largely on your vendors, so remember to do your research, read vendor reviews, talk to other brides, and select your vendors carefully.

Happy Planning!

The Great Bridal Expo

Posted by on Oct 8, 2011 in Events, Vendors | 1 comment

Last weekend, my daughter and I attended the Great Bridal Expo in Fort Lauderdale. If you are newly engaged, I highly recommend attending at least one bridal show early in your wedding planning. It is a great way to meet all types of wedding vendors, learn about new trends, and also score some great door prizes and discount coupons with vendors. I was able to secure two free tickets to the event through Bridal Guide magazine.

There were a ton of brides in attendance, so it was quite crowded yet still fun. There was a ton of energy in the showroom.

A few noteworthy vendors:

Donut Divas & Fun Foods – Donut Divas will come to your wedding and prepare mini donuts and other sweets, such as funnel cakes and fudge puppies, on the spot. Guests can pick their own toppings and take home goodies in a personalized bag or box. Check them out at www.donutdivas.com.

Vision DJs – Award-winning DJs and Lighting Solutions – Vision DJs provided the music entertainment for my daughter’s wedding. They were wonderful, and I highly recommend them. Statistics prove that the two most important things your guests will remember about your wedding are the food and the entertainment. So, take your time and wisely invest in great entertainment for your wedding. Check out Vision DJs at www.visiondjs.com.

Floral Preservations & Custom Framing by Forever Flowers – If you want to preserve your wedding bouquet, Forever Flowers has been doing flower preservation in South Florida since 1997. They have combined their freeze-dry and custom framing businesses into one, and they customize your keepsake into any size you wish with a price to fit every budget. Check them out at www.forever-flowers.com.

Butlers in the Buff – Last but not least is “the original male order company.” Their vendor booth was getting the most attention, thanks to their “live” demonstration. Their bulters are “charming, innocent, and just a little cheeky.” This could be ideal for bachelorette parties, if that’s something the bride might be into :)  Check them out at www.butlersinthebuff.com.

The Great Bridal Expo was held Sunday, October 2, 2011, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, Florida. Check out GreatBridalExpo.com for upcoming show dates.
