List of things to prepare for a Wedding in Bloomfield Hills & West Bloomfield MI

pinkweddings3

As me and my friends were brainstorming ideas for my best friend’s wedding and thinking of all the services we require, it became clear that having a really talented event coordinator on your team might be a good thing because there is really so many different services that go into constructing a successful wedding and you need many other organizations to invest their energy and time into it which costs money.

But everyone has a budget, even if my friend comes from pretty affluent background living in nice neighborhood of Oakland County. Still there is a certain budget and to get the best quality service at the best price takes research. But the last thing we want to do is simply finding the least expensive option and getting bad service in return. This is a wedding after all and you can’t risk taking any chances…

So here is a list of wedding services we require and still in the process of making sure we found the right one, in last article I talked about a great limo company that we will use since we have experience with them before but now for the following services we really don’t have much experience…

Food Caterer: I don’t know much about where to go for best catered food for wedding, with a budget I would think a luxurious restaurant would be too expensive, but a pub probably won’t do. I want to find catered food that is excellent in flavor but it has to also have spectacular presentation because it is a wedding. So here is where the challenge sets in for us because we have to balance cost with quality. My friend owns a home made pizza parlor in Lake Orion and they have amazing food but for wedding I’m not sure if their dishes exude enough fanciness.

Banquet Hall Service: Well this is more of picking the right banquet hall to do the wedding, there is several near West Bloomfield MI and they all have decent sizes, but I need one that is willing to cooperate to our specific needs because we want to put up incredible decoration which is still in the works and heavily top secret at the moment. But anyway, from whom I’ve been talking from the Banquet Halls, I found few candidates, its amazing how much difference it makes to speak to personal on the phone and deciding based on their tone of voice. Are they enthusiastic and do they sound like they care?

Wedding Photographer & Possibly Photo Booth: I know for certain that we need a wedding photograph as this was explicitly stated by my best friend but trick is where to find a good one? I’ve looked at various websites and local listing to try to find a great photographer but its hard to see who’s good. Also I’ve been to a wedding last year where they had hired a photo booth rental for it and it was super fun and a big hit, so if budget allows I would love to hire photo booth rental for this wedding as well, again the problem comes with finding a great company. I am still in the process of sorting it out.

Now I’ve listed 3 above, but this is only portion of the entire list we came up with as far as services required for a wedding. So you can imagine the task at hand here. It is like having a side job, albeit a super fun one. Maybe I should become a wedding planner some day. Connecting clients with the best wedding limo service, caterer, & banquet halls complete with the best photographer in town to take professional wedding photos that capture priceless moments for eternity.

I’m all about event planning and getting creative to come up with the best wedding given the allotted budget amount. Let the fun begin!

 

The Best For The Whole Town of West Bloomfield, MI

Me and my friends were planning on my my best friend’s Wedding the other day and it was getting clear that we needed many more things than we originally intended. I mean we planned to car pool to the ceremony but with all the people that are going to be attending it became crystal clear that we needed some sort of limo transportation service.

At first we called up one of my friend who booked with a limo company 2 years back for her wedding but after looking at the google reviews, lets just say that option became less attractive real quick. Next we looked at several other companies in the area but it was difficult to find any site that caught our attention

Then my other friend referred us another limo company that was out of town but we decided to call anyway. This limousine company was based out of Sterling Heights, and they did wedding packages all year round with red carpet. Well Sterling Heights was 1 hour away from West Bloomfield so maybe it was too far for the company we thought, well after speaking to the owner we were so delighted because he told us they just set up a new office in West Bloomfield with new vehicles like Rolls Royce Limos!!! How cool is that!

This company had a wedding package that was very attractive us as it included everything we needed at reasonable rates with even a red carpet service!

After speaking to the owner it became real clear that this was the company to partner up with and I knew deep in my heart that I found the right transportation limo company for my friend, so we decided to book with them right away.

When the wedding ceremony came on 3/6/2015 it was quite a awesome day with the sun shining bright even though Spring was only beginning. My sister looked beautiful and the Tom the husband was looking sharp! I was just cwed9000039Cheery all day because my friend was getting married to a man I knew was perfect for her. The family were over that I knew for over 20 years and it was just such a happy moment we were able to share together at the house while we waited for the limo to show up and pick us up for the ceremony.

Well the Rolls Royce Limo showed up just in time and we were delighted by a real sharp and friendly looking driver. He opened the door for us and rolled out the red carpet. We were really impressed already by how the limo looked and how the driver was treating us from the very first impression.

The ride was spacious and smooth as can be, with great tune that was playing from my friend’s iPod. We were very much pleased and even more fun when there is great champagne in the ride for us. The ride took us roughly 40 min and I must say that was one of the high light of the day because inside a limousine everyone is close by and you get to have real intimate time together with everyone.

We arrived at the Ceremony by 6:00PM and everyone was drinking and having a cheery time together, while the sermon prepared for the tie in the knot.

I was feeling nervous but I imagined how much more nervous my friend must be getting married. It is a very special time for the girl as it is one of the most special moment of the year. And you will get to cherish for the rest of your life. Seeing my friend happy and the fiance with big smiles, really made me a bit jealous of wanting a awesome relationship like that some day in the future.

I guess I am still waiting for the “right one” whatever that means. Well West Bloomfield Wedding organization did the right thing for us because once the ceremony was finished and I dropped a few tears and I saw the most happiest my friend was in years, I decided to get some wine in me to have a bash with rest of my friends. The food was great and the ambiance was perfect. There was photo booths and in the distance, a beautiful limousine where people were taking pictures in front of. I mean when you see a phantom limo, it catches people’s attention.

The celebration was all in all a great success. The catering was fantastic and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of friends and family there to celebrate with me. It will definitely go down in the books as one of the most memorable times spending quality time with my best friend. I can only wish that my wedding will be half way amazing as hers. But all I know is that I now know which catering company to use as well as which limousine company to go for.

I will see through this thing till the end and I am very happy to take part in my friends perfect wedding. Happy that my first blog entry has been such a positive one, my plan is to make 2015 filled with great positive moments like these.
