Hi there, westside brides!
We are just getting underway with our reception planning (in the Holland area). Any one have any cake baker or florist recommendations? We haven’t decided on a DJ or band yet…any recommendations there?

I have a family friend doing my cake and my mom is doing the floral arrangements, lol. She could actually do your florals as well, if you’re interested in silk flowers. She works at the Holland Michaels and they do floral arrangements for weddings all the time, bouquets and centerpieces if I’m not mistaken. She and at least one other person work in the floral department and all of their work is on display right when you walk into the store if you want to get a feel for what they can do, but they definitely do personalized stuff as well.
As for music, so far I’m really impressed with my DJ, Celebration Entertainment I talked directly with Brad Eley, the owner, and he was super willing to bargain with me (in part because I’m having a February wedding and everyone’s eager to work during the off season). When I mentioned him to my photographer she also said he (and all of his DJs – well, at least the ones she’s seen) is really great. I really liked that he has a HUGE variety of music. I mentioned that I wanted my fiance and I to be introduced at the reception to Jack Sparrow’s theme music from Pirates of the Caribbean. Within 10 seconds he’s pulled up the music on his computer. Seriously, I haven’t heard of another DJ that keeps friggin’ Pirates music on hand!
