Alot of my vendors were by word of mouth.  Our florist did the flowers for DH’s brothers wedding about 5 years before ours and they loved them!  I checked reviews online for most companies, mostly at projectwedding.com

I found our limo company on there as well as my hair/makeup artist, they had so many great reviews!

Venue spaces-all the usual places like theknot, but I also folllowed several photographer’s blogs and got to see the locations that they were shooting at. I saw my venue on a local photographer’s blog and fell in love.

I have also gotten a lot of recs from my local knottie board. I knew going in what bakery I wanted to do my cake and already have a good salon in mind for hair/makeup. I am lucky because those girls are really supportive which I realize is not always true on the knot!

Lastly, I have a DOC and she has set me up with some good vendors like my florist who does wedding flowers on the side. Would have never found her if my DOC didn’t know about her!

  • Wedding: January 2011

Well the conversation went something like this:

Me: I found this great place in Nashville that holds up to 500 guests and it’s a plantation.

Him: That sounds awesome honey. I think we should stay in town, just in case it snows.

Me: So what does that leave us with that we can still dance in and bring alchohol?

Him: Community Complex, The Depot, and I think the State Park. (as a side note none of those places openly allow alcohol)

Me: Oh. Well the Depot won’t hold a lot of people in January because the Deck is closed

Him: yea

Me: I guess that leaves Community complex and the state park. I’ll call tomorrow.

So that helped narrow down the choices when you only have 3 places in town where the people are polite. 🙁  We’ve chosen the State Park. It holds the right amount of people, and it’s pretty private. So we’re definately not at the Ritz, but I feel like with some elbow grease I can make it look as elegant as we want.

A multitude of various places. Big things like the venue and transport I found on the internet. Photography and cake and bits like that are being done for us by friends. I’ve had some people recommend vendors to me that I’ve not bothered looking at because I’ve got things sorted already though.
