@Missprincessmegs:  Sorry for the delay! I ended up getting my cake from Whole Foods because of the nightmare with another vendor I had planned to use. She didn’t show up for my tasting, never called me to reschedule, and never apologized or explained why she didn’t show. My fiance later picked up a box of samples to bring to me (out of town one weekend), and the cake and frosting both tasted terrible so we scratched our plans. For the same price as just the cake, I was able to do an entire dessert table from Whole Foods – mini pecan pies, mini key lime pies, fruit tarts, 2 kinds of cheesecake, gluten free cupcakes, coconut cake, wedding cake with strawberry filling, chocolate cake…it was incredible! Very simple and nothing elaborate, but it all tasted very good. I bought various cake plates and trays, and the dessert table looked really nice.

For sale I have:

– 120 gold chargers like this (http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/gold-leaf-plate-charger-527713/) for $1 each

– Clear vases with white pillar candles inside (used for the aisles, windows and altar). I believe the vases vary from 6-9″ in height. I’d sell the vases + pillar candles for $2 each. The skinny vases have the candle permanently inside (no pillar candle that can be removed) and are $1. I’ll upload a photo of the aisle and altar at the bottom.

– 60 long sparklers for exit. The entire sparkler is 18″ long, and they burn for 2 minutes. Selling all for $20.

– Cake plates and dessert plates. Some from an antique store in Savannah, and some new. Most are clear glass, white, or gold. If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll send pics and prices.

– Over 100 brass candlesticks. I’ll paste a photo below so you can see how I used them on the reception tables. I think they’d also look great at an altar. Again, let me know if you’re even somewhat interested and I’ll send photos and prices. The small ones would probably be around $2-3 each. The large ones (up to 3 feet tall) were pricey, so I’d consider renting them for around $10-$20 each depending on size.

– Gold trimmed board/chalkboard that I used for the reception table assignments. I printed the cards at FedEx Office and taped to the board, then set it on a nice iron easel I borrowed from a friend. I don’t have a photo of this yet; still waiting for the professional photos. Selling for $15.

– Cathedral length veil, ivory. No trim or jewels, just simple. Selling for $50.

Let me know if you have any more questions or want photos of anything specific. You’re going to LOVE getting married in Savannah!

@Missprincessmegs:  It is a bit out of my price range.   I liked that they handle all chairs and tables, however, that is plus.   From it’s reviews, I know you are going to have a great wedding there.  I’m starting to look at some restaurant venues as well.

Has anyone done anything at SOHO?  I was in there for lunch today and since it was remodelled, it looks amazing.  It is actually quirky and sophisticated at the same time.  I haven’t yet contacted them for any information.

I’m not a Savannah bride, but I know exactly where I would want to get married there — Bonaventure Cemetery!  I felt more history there than sadness.  Here are some pics I found of a Bonaventure Cemetery elopement:

applecheeks:  If you’re looking for venue ideas, getting married in one of Savannah’s historic squares is not only beautiful but crazy affordable! If you’re interested, I can share info on getting the permits.

I’m getting married in October 2016 in Savannah. I’m starting to look into bands/djs and photography. Any good suggestions?

sommergrl3:  We looked into bands, but in the end, our budget didn’t allow it. We used Bonnie Kaar at First City Events as a wedding planner (she was amazing!!), and we ended up using a DJ from First City Events too (http://www.firstcityevents.com/). It turned out to be such a great decision! Our DJ, Tyson, not only played music that had our guests requesting his playlist, but he also MC’d the reception and kept the energy upbeat and so fun. Everyone stayed and danced until an hour after our venue was closed (even my non-dancing parents)!

For photography, we went with Izzy Hudgins (http://izzyhudgins.com/). We traveled to Savannah during our engagement and attended a bridal fair. While there, we met several photographers and even had a couple of mini-sessions with Alexis Sweet (http://www.alexissweetphotography.com/) and Rach Lea (http://www.rachleaphoto.com/). We really liked Alexis and Rach, but we were blown away by Izzy’s creativity and used her on our big day. Not only did she capture our day beautifully, she was so calm and easy-going, a welcome energy throughout the day.

Let me know if I can help with anything else!
