    Great idea, every referral helps…I have used only vendors that I have worked with or have been highly recomended for my daughters wedding in June.  I do have one suggestion for your list…you may need an officiant for your ceremony.  There are many good ones in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area.  Save your self time, don’t leave this as a last min. decision.
