Q: What do we have left to organize at your venue?
1. Hire a caterer. There are 2 options - Your caterer will either come with dishes and full service or just the food and you will need to do your own dish rental, set-up and clean-up.
2. Other Decor and Floral - 2 options - You will either be a DIY decorator and work on creating your decor and have friends or family to set up for you OR you can hire a Florist who does both floral and rentals to do this all for you and can set it up as well.
We have found the following choices make your wedding planning go smooth, easy and much more enjoyable. Being onsite for each wedding, we have seen many weddings run many different ways. We look at the brides and their parents and we take note of how everything can be more enjoyed. Here's what we recommend: Unless you have a team that is ready to do all your work with joy (which we have seen some amazing family/friend team work out there), we always recommend the following: a caterer who offers full service - that means they take care of the dishes and glassware, as well as do complete set up and clean up. That's where the majority of the stress lies. Most full service caterers will even run your bar for you. (Check out Urban Prairie Cuisine - they are full service and offer a bartender for you and have fabulous food). If you are looking for someone to decorate for you, your best bang for you buck is hiring a Florist who does both flowers and rentals and offer to do all your set-up/clean up as well. Your wedding will look incredible with no stress on your part to do anything! (Check out Stone House Creative or Little Flower Shop on our vendors page - they are great and can take care of all of this for you).
