I just booked my reception at Stonegate in Hoffman Estates. Any reviews would be great. The wedding date is 10/1/11. What to do next now that all of the big things are out of the way? When do you hire photographer, florist, dj, etc??? Thanks!

Congrats! I’m not in your area so i can’t give any reviews or recommendations. If I were you I would book a photographer next, but it’s really about what’s important to you. You could also start looking around for florists and bakers for the cake.

I would definitely start looking at all the big vendors- photographer, florist, DJ. We are getting married on 9/24/11 in downtown Chicago and found vendors that were already booked for the same weekend when we started planning in March of this year. Good luck!

I went to a wedding there, it was very nice – definitely one of the best in the area! I agree, next steps are photographer and DJ/Band. Then florist.

I also agree, get to booking the things that people can’t be doubled. I would assume a florist could possibly handle two weddings in a day but a photographer and DJ cannot. Especially if you have a personal preference on any of them.
