We had a beautiful wedding day! I wouldn't have changed a thing on our choices we made to pull the special day together. I did a lot of the work on my own but couldn't have done it all the week of or day of to get it all done without Iris (Chez Gourmet) and Jennifer (In The Details). Just remember to stay within your budget, relax and enjoy yourself the day goes so fast!!
I hope you find our recommendations helpful and useful.

The bulk of our budget was on the catering but included; suberb food, fantastic service, table setting, linens, wooden chairs in and out, dessert bar and open bar. I worked with Iris and she was able to accomodate us in everything we wanted on our buffet and was great to work with her! I highly recommend them to cater any event!!
I used the Publix bakery in Plantation. They were great in creating the wedding cake I wanted...you do not have to pick the cakes they have in their books or website. I also highly recomend Publix if you want to save money and have a cake that looks and tastes just as good as any bakery.
Blanca did a fantastic job on the flowers for the wedding, from the bouquets, guest book/gift table, ceremony, reception to the live leafs chargers i wanted. I met with her with my ideas and she was able to create exactly what i asked for with her honest opinion on other stuff that would cost me much less. And I was amazed how it all pulled together, she did a fantastic job!
I worked with Jennifer Shaffer on helping me pull my wedding day ideas together. She was my go to person the day of the wedding getting everyone there on time and organizing the set up of the ceremony and weddding. She did a great job pulling our beautiful day together without any stress on me or family!
I had the best experience trying on wedding gowns in Unique Bridal, Kris the owner and consultant did a fanstic job helping me pick out my perfect dress! The prices are right...I also bought my bridesmaid dresses and flower gril dresses in her store.
We purchased the "Photo Glass Coasters" and they worked out perfect with our white/green wedding. We inserted our own thank you and picture in each.
We held our wedding ceremony outside at Volunteer Park. It worked out absolutely perfect and was beautiful with the natural decor. We also held our cocktail hour outside on the brick patio while we were finishing our pictures...it was catered by open bar and butler passed hors d'oeuvres. It was a nice treat for our out of town guests.
We held the reception inside the Volunteer Park building, we rented teh Jacaranda & Magnolia rooms for our 100 guests. The park staff was the perfect location for our wedding! And if you are looking for a clean, nice place to have yours the price is fantastic at the park.
