Our wonderful and helpful ATL metro bee, GGSB, had a very interesting thread about what are our North Georgia brides doing. Let’s take it a step even further ladies and let the cat out of the bag..who’s designing or planning your wedding!
Let me know (and our other friends here too) what are you doing for the following and with which vendor or venue?
- Bridesmaid or Best Man Dress
- Hair Stylist
Inquiring Atlanta and metro bees want to know!
As far as I know with regards to me, here goes (since we don’t have a formal date and haven’t even decided where yet)
If we end up choosing atlanta area for our wedding, the following will be my "people":
- Venue -(if in Atlanta these are the possibilities) Subdivision Clubhouse, Canoe, or a winery
- Caterer -will probably be decided by venue
- Coordinator -my sister and bff most likely. Sis is amazing designer and bff is daughter of a great interior designer
- DJ-family friend, Dack Patrick most likely if we use a dj
- Florist –My friend, Kasey Currie, an awesome designer
- Cake–Baker’s man
- Officiant –minister from church
- Dress –still working on that
- Shoes–have gorgeous Marciano "Tessa" shoes but in love with a new pair..
- Bridesmaid or Best Man Dress –J. Crew Little Black Dress
- Hair Stylist –Hair and Makeup artist will most likely be from same studio..working on that now but love to get my hair done at Carter Barnes
- Invitations –love two designers : Carciofi Designs and a wonderful Etsy Vendor
