We used Melissa also for our cake. She is so sweet and the cake was yummy but ended up being a bit more then we wanted to pay. So we did a smaller cake and 2 sheet cakes. She was great to work with.

A friend of ours used Sound Choice and really liked them so I’m going to price them out also.

I do too, I’m only hoping the winds don’t pick up!  I keep having this mental image of a big gust of wind blowing my veil right off and over the cliff in the middle of the ceremony, lol.

I’ll probably do loose curls gathered at the nape of my neck into some sort of low ‘do, and then putting the comb in over my curls.  I have pretty thick hair, so a few extra bobbies should keep it from taking off.  The long range forecast I’ve checked has us at 78 degrees with clear skies and a slight breeze on our wedding day, so I don’t think it’ll be an issue.  I’m SO HAPPY the weather looks like it’s going to be gorgeous!

The Vista House is beautiful, I didn’t even know they did weddings there!  Are you having your ceremony inside or outside?  I’ve never been, but we might drive up on our wedding day to take some pictures there.

Have you checked out Wedding Wire?  There are some good reviews on their for vendors.  

We are interviewing photographers and videographers this month and next month – I found a couple who’s prices are very reasonable (she does photography and he does videography).  His videography website kind of stinks but her photography website is kind of great.  We’re meeting them this weekend so we’ll see how it goes. 

I’ve had the opposite experience – the website sucks but then the person is kind of lame.  I really believe in "clicking" with the people you want to hire.

the ones i am looking at are :

 

cake:

the sweetness, 4th generation bakers, their stuff is delicious, their prices are pretty amazing as well, thinking about doing small treats and then a small cake for the man and i to cut, she does a free replica cake for your first anniversary. for a big cake, pricing is about $3 a head, and they tend to make a cake about 25 servings over, for individual treats, pricing is about $1.50-$2.50 per treat, and Kay takes into consideration seasonal fruits

Toronto

flowers: 

a friend’s ma does flowers, so we are considering them, but not sure

so that’s my input, please, please, please, more people contribute!!!

There’s a couple of sites for everyone to look into:

http://www.bravowedding.com

http://www.oregonabc.com

 

There are associations I belong to through my work and they have tons of links to any vendor you need.  I do wedding planning for a local venue and would be happy to give any SW Washington or Oregon brides references for clients that have booked with us.
