I’m another CT bride.  Don’t worry Kamazing, you’re not alone.  This is actually going to be my first post. 

Wedding Date: 4/21/12

Location: Orange, CT

In need of affordable florist and photographer.  Any tips would be greatly appreciated.  Is Stew Leonards affordable?  I’m at the point where if there cheap I want them.  Who knew flowers were so expensive!  My wedding was moved up so I’m it’s been a little hectic.

Hi fellow CT bees! I’m getting married in Ct on August 4, 2012.

Our photographer is Red Caramel Photography, out of Danbury Ct. They are the NICEST people ever and we felt so comfortable with them. It is a husband and wife team. Also are very reasonably priced! Ask for Cecelia and tell her Myra, her August 4 bride, sent you!

Our florist is Stylish Blooms out of Bristol, Ct. Before I met her I was in florist HELL. I had met with 5 other florists, and some gave me outrageous quotes ($5000!), some just never bothered getting back to me, and one I was going to sign up with and wouldn’t include the details of the floral designs in her contract (uhm, I can’t sign a contract saying I agree to pay you XYZ if it doesn’t state what I’m agreeing to pay for!). As soon as I met with Stylish Blooms I knew I was in good hands. She not only gave me the lowerst price, but she also has rave reviews! Pics I’ve seen of her work are stunning and she’s been very prompt in responding to all my questions.  Ask for Melissa and tell her Myra, her August 4 bride, sent you!

 

Let me know if I can help with anything else.

I feel that there aren’t any CT brides out there either! I have searched the internet for CT blogs, but to no avail. Good to know that there are others out there. 

 

@LaurenSeiter: I am also getting married in Orange, CT. Crazy! Did you grow up there? Or just live there now? Any advice for a bride getting married there?

@MissCT:  O my goodness!  That’s so exciting.  No, I’m from Brookfield (Danbury area) but my fiance is stantioned at the Air National Guard base in Orange so we’re very familier with the area.  Plus we needed an easy location for his side of the family.  They’re all coming from Long Island so this way it’s just right off 95 or the Merritt, easy peasy.  Do you have your venue yet?  If not I know a great place.  🙂

@LaurenSeiter: That is so cool about your fiance. When is your date? We are also both Newbees! Are you liking wedding bee so far? I am thinking that I am going to be doing either my moms’s backyard or my grandparent’s backyard (both in Orange). But I am completely open to venues. Where are you having yours? I still can’t get over that there are two Orange brides here. It’s so small to me, though I guess it is a much bigger place now. My grandparents still live in the house that my mom grew up in and I was raised right down the road, so Orange is a special place to me.

@MissCT:  I’m getting married April 21st, 2012!  I am so excited!!  Yes we are newbees, LOL, I like the weddingbee so far.  I think it’s been really helpful with the little things.  Like I’ve been getting a lot of information on florists and transportaion from the site and the ladies have been most helpful with tips and with giving any information they have.  That is so nice about your grandparents house.  I like little touches that make it personal and special to you.  It sounds like it’s going to be a beautiful and meaningful wedding with special locations like that. 

I’m having mine at the RaceBrook Country Club, right off 34.  They have been just so lovely.  I know, I can’t believe we’re both Orange brides!  That’s so funny, small world.
