i’m paying $600 for ceremony and reception and lighting effects for the dj.

for your centerpieces do you have any inspiration pictures so we can get an idea?

For the flowers, I went on the Sam’s club website and saw how many flowers they used in their bouquets and figured if I liked more or less than were in there.  There are alot of bulk flower wholesalers out there that post pics of table flowers and you can estimate your need.

DJ, we used someone we saw at a beer tasting.  He gave us forms, wanted us to list out what we didn’t want played what we did want played and type of music we generally liked.   Do you have any friends or anyone from work/school that know dj’s?

As far as a DJ, I picked the one hosting the first bridal show I went to.  He’s professional, sounded great, and was within budget so I chose him. I’m not one to meet with 20 different DJs before deciding on one though, I like to find a vendor i like and check them off my list.  I think we’re paying $2k for our DJ, and we really get to pick our music.  Our ceremony music is the Temper Trap, Death Cab for Cutie, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Most of the music he already had in his library but quickly downloaded what he didn’t have.

 

As for flowers, I wont be much help. I know they’re “necessary” for weddings, but they seem like such a waste of money, they’re going to die or get thrown out within a few days.  I think the centerpieces have 14ish flowers in each vase but we’re only doing one per table.

@peachacid:  personally i would do two or three clusters of different size vases. i’m picturing 3 clusters of 3. Still use the same amount of stems but just break them up. however if you want something more simple 3-4 spaced down the center would work as well.

The vases, I always think less is more, maybe 3 or 4?  there are usually a few glasses and plates for everyone and shoving the centerpieces out of the way is normally what happens.  Plus my friend, the designer says odd numbers make groupings look  better.  I googled and there doesn’t seem to be a formula…

As for the DJ what about looking on Angie’s list or something like that to see what reviews different one’s have?
