I’m an NC bride in Raleigh!! I’m having my reception at the Marriot at Crabtree because it’s a really good value and a nice place :) . I haven’t done much with the cake, I’m still figuring that out. What are your colors/theme?

Oh awesome! I love blue too :) My colors are plum and Tiffany blue! I have a great makeup artist, send me a PM with your email and I can email you her information, email and pictures of her work. I still haven’t found shoes and it’s driving me crazy!

@cdubz:  I emailed you! I don’t know if you got it haha. I am doing my own flowers and ordering what I need in bulk for the exception of my bouqet. I did however, to figure out what flowers I wanted/needed went to Michael’s and put a bouquet together as a sample for myself.  :)

I’m also a Raleigh NC bride!! Ahh, almost 3 months out!  We’re getting married at the Pavilions at the Angus Barn.  I have most of my vendors so far, if any of you need or want references or suggestions, I am SOOO pleased with our “wedding team”.  We’ve gotten lots of accolades for who we’ve chosen, I think we made some really solid choices.  I can especially recommend an awesome cake baker.  Her cakes were out of this world good.  I can’t wait to eat more cake at our reception!  We’re knee-deep in the DIY parts of our reception and throwing around ideas for guestbooks, etc.  I’d love to chat with y’all about our raleigh weddings!

Technically, I’m a Durham bride, Duke Chapel and The Cotton Room. But a lot of our vendors far also work in the Raleigh area. if you still haven’t selected a photographer, I’d recommend Vesic. He’s based out of Winston Salem but travels to the triangle without any extra fee.

When we were planning our recent wedding, we just wanted to make sure that everything we had was good quality, even if it wasn’t fancy. To that end, we ended up getting both our buffet dinner and our wedding cakes from The Q Shack. They do more than just barbecue – our dinner included London broil, chicken Marsala, and veggie lasagna with sides of macaroni and cheese and garlicky broccoli. We had two cakes – one vanilla with almond and one chocolate raspberry. For all that, plus some light hors d’oeuvres, PLUS renting all the dishes and flatware and linens, we entertained 110 people for around $4000. People kept saying how good the food was too – I think they were surprised that a barbecue joint could serve up such a classy meal!

Please check out Rachelle, their baker. She doesn’t work with fondant, but if you want buttercream then you owe it to yourself to sample what she can do. She charges less than anyone else, and her cake is unbelievably good.

Hi!  I am about 45 minutes from Raleigh, and getting married in Rocky Mount at the imperial centre.  Looking for a caterer but no luck as of yet.
