Congratulations!  

It’s been great so far. They’ve been very responsive to all of my questions via e-mail since I booked in October. I don’t think I will be meeting with them to discuss menu/linens/timetable until about two months before the wedding.

newtownbride:  Thanks! While there is no tasting, we’ve had a nearly 2 year engagement and every time I tell anyone we are getting married at a Cescaphe venue, the first thing they say is “OMG the FOOD!!”

I have honestly not heard a single negative review of it, so while we were also worried about the no tasting thing, it’s one of the few things that ISN’T stressing me out, and good food is HIGH on our priority list. 

When we went to the menu appointment, they were really knowledgeable about all of the food and they even have a slideshow presentation with pictures. In the middle of the appointment, a chef walked in and I thought he maybe had the wrong room but he interrupted to say he was in the back making pastries and thought we might like to try! He brought out a HUGE plate of them and they were all SO GOOD! I’m STILL dreaming of the chocolate raspberry bars.

I took a photo so you can see here:

 

There were only three of us at the appointment so as you can imagine, I had to take most of it home with me!

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me about Cescaphe or any other vendors! I get so excited to meet other DTC brides on here ๐Ÿ˜€

newtownbride:  I have- I’m using EBE Paris (band), Sean Marshall Lin (photographer), Shawn Fisher (video), Dinglewood Designs (invitations), Old St. Joes (church), Beautiful Blooms (florist), Up Your Do (hair), and Dylan Michael Cosmetics (makeup). The vibe I’m going for is mostly soft and romantic- a lot of light pink, green and white flowers. Have you booked any other vendors yet?

newtownbride:  I’m a DTC bride! Getting married October 11, 2015. Our big menu appointment is a week from Saturday. I’ll keep you all posted!

 

So far, our experience with Cescaphe has been so easy and wonderful. Everyone in the office has been so helpful any time I called in to ask a random question. Starting to get excited- the big day is approaching fast!

newtownbride:  We booked bands through http://www.bvtlive.com, for both our daughters’ weddings. They have DJs and a lot of different entertainment options. I contacted other entertainment people and there was at least one high pressure employee (a big turnoff to me), with each of them. Plus comparable bands at BVT were more reasonable. 

I’d also recommend Tom, at Celebrations Design Group for flowers, decor, lighting, chair covers, etc. Their wharehouse is in DE, but their office is in PA.

newtownbride:  Hey! I think I went on a Thursday or Friday. Sorry it took a little while to get back to you. I’m married now and back from the honeymoon!

I also wanted to let you know that you are in great hands. I can honestly say that our wedding was the absolute best day!! I’m a bit sad it’s all over because it was SO amazing! Definitely take some time to sit back and enjoy and just take it all in. It was so much more beautiful than I ever even pictured in my mind (and I already had incredibly high expectations!) For the last two weeks we have heard nothing but rave reviews about the venue and the food and everything else. You have nothing to worry about with the food! 

We have had so many friends and family members reach out and say it was really the most awesome night ever. A few of them have asked that we have a vow renewal next year so we can do it all over again! 

I’m jealous of all of you future DTC brides — your days will all be perfect and amazing! Honestly it will be even better than anything you’ve imagined!
