Hi ladies! I am moving to Cleveland May 2nd and am in the process of planning a wedding there for September 2010 and I know nothing about the area! Any reception hall suggestions? We are working with a 10K budget but I want it to be pretty too. Lakewood Giant Eagle? GREAT IDEA! My fiance is actually in Lakewood now and our church is there. I never thought of that!

 We aren’t getting married until June 2010 so we don’t have all of our vendors, but these are what we have so far!

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Ceremony: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">Cleveland Botanical Gardens.  We were going to go with the Hanna Gardens at the WRHS since it’s a tad cheaper but the woman in contact is impossible to get ahold of and figured it wouldn’t be worth the savings. 

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Reception:  <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">Park Lane Villa Ballroom.  I haven’t heard much from other brides that had their weddings there, but David has been really great.  It’s a bit pricey but I think it’s gorgeous and the caterer seems to be great.  Oh, and it comes with chivari chairs! 🙂

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Photographer: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">Rad Productions.  Love them! 

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Wedding Dress: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">TARGET!  They don’t seem to be selling the exact dress any more, but it was on sale for $40 and it’s GORGEOUS!!

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Limo: Not sure, maybe <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">All Occasion Limo?  They gave me a really good quote.

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Bridesmaid Dresses: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">J Crew

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Save the Dates: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">Vista Print.  Sign up for their email updates and like almost every other day I get an email saying everything is free.  We are getting free save the date postcards! And I think they are super cute.  I actually already ordered them and they look great. 

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Invites: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">exclusivleyweddings.com We are spending a lot of our budget on the food, alcohol, ceremony, and reception location so we needed to cut costs here.  I don’t really care what they are like, but I still wanted the raised printing.  I ordered a free sample and really liked how looked.  After all is said and done, the invites will come to about $2 per invitation.

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">Flowers: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic">Heinens? They gave me a great quote but I’m still going to look around.

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">String Quartet <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">for ceremony: <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic"> Mayfield String Quartet.  We still haven’t booked yet, but Tara has been great to work with so far.  They are willing to learn a different song for me to walk down the aisle to!

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold">DJ:<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-style: italic"> Jerry Bruno Productions (Bill Bowen).  They seem pretty organized so far.  I am most nervous for the DJ since we won’t be able to see the finished product until that night…
