I’m also a future BG bride! Any recommendations on decor or space planning? Also, did you use any of their in house vendors? What would you recommend for food?

thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

I’m a BG bride – next month!  We’re going with the included linens as well.  I feel like the light color of the room and linens will make the flowers really pop and look vivid. 

I have to say, I’m 110% satisfied with everything so far. 

I’m working on my menu and floorplans now, I’ll share when I’m all set.  🙂  We are having our ceremony there (upstairs).  As for food, I’ve eaten there a few times (@ weddings as well as just for dinner with FH) & never had a dish I didn’t like.

Good luck Miss Meepsie!! Glad to see there is another BG Winter bride here =) I’d love to know what you’ve decided for your menu since all of their dishes are delicious!

Wow Meepsie!!!!  Almost the big day!!!  So exciting!

 

Purplesamcat – did you use Madison Florist?  We met with Billy on Sunday, and I think my mom has a total vendor-crush.  (we like him too).

Hey there future BG Brides! 

Just wanted to let you know that my wedding went off without so much as a single hiccup on Friday!  I was beyond pleased with everyone/everything @ the BG.  I’ll post photos as soon as I have some pro-pics. 

Everything was amazing – the food, the service, the location, even the weather!  🙂  My guests (especially the out of towners) were all beyond amazed with the location & the view.  🙂 

You can see my same-day-edit video @ http://vimeo.com/8781923

Mrs. Meepsie-the video was great!! It’s making me even more excited for my wedding. Can’t wait to see pictures and hear the reviews.

 

@ Ex libris- How was Madison Florist? Was the pricing reasonable?

Hey BG Brides,

I have another question for ya.  I’m thisclose to becoming a BG bride myself (super excited!!), in the process of reviewing the contract.  But, the thing is, I absolutely HATE negotiating, and I also feel like I have absolutely NO idea what kinds of stuff I should even be asking for versus what they would never agree to.  So before I start to attempt negotiating (bleh), and I really hope this isn’t too personal and/or rude of me to ask, but I would love to know:

– Approx what you’re paying (particularly for a Saturday night rate in the warmer months) and with what minimum
– What if any extras you were able to get them to throw in
– And in general, if they’re willing to negotiate with you, or I should just suck it up and sign on the dotted line

Thanks so much!!!

marcam – we haven’t booked them yet…we are meeting with Billy next week to see his samples based on our ideas.  the price he quoted ($4000) covered 17 centerpieces, an arch, my bouquet, 5 bridesmaid bouquets, 3 mom/grandma nosegays, 9 boutonnieres, chair covers, and “boxes of petals” for decoration.
