@Fanciful:  Where in Virginia?  I am getting married in Staunton, which is halfway between Harrisburg and Charlottsville.  i went to like 5 bridal shows too!  I can probably recommend some vendors.

I am getting married in a small town I’m not from either. What I’ve found is even though there may be 4 florists and 3 caterers, if you ask locals they will say “have Emily do your flowers and Connie do your meal, etc”. And they’re right. Usually they’ve been to a million events put on by these people. They know who’s good. I feel like my local vendors were by far the easiest.

They might! The town I’m getting married in has maybe 500 people so my Cake lady is coming from 40 minutes away and my florist and makeup/hair is an hour away. It never hurts to call and ask!
