Planning a wedding involves selecting the perfect team of professionals to make your vision come to life. Since most people don’t do this every day, it can be a pretty daunting task when you don’t know where to start. 35 Atlanta has compiled a team of fantastic wedding pros that we believe are the best in the business. We hope you’ll find this to be a helpful resource as you create your own personal wedding dream team.
An experienced wedding consultant can help you navigate the entire planning process, and are typically among the first vendors chosen. They will help you transform simple ideas into reality, offer expert advice and recommendations and take the stress off you so you can enjoy being engaged! Most consultants offer packages with a variety of service levels, from full-service event management to simple week- or day-of coordination.
Choosing the right floral designer is an important step in making your wedding day vision come to life. Flowers represent one of the largest design elements at a wedding because they are literally everywhere – from the bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres to the altar and throughout the reception space. Experienced florists will also likely be familiar with your ceremony and reception venues and can be a great source of ideas and inspiration!
The best place to start looking for a caterer is your venue. Why? Because some venues have exclusive on-site caterers that must be used, while others have a list of approved caterers that you can select from. Still other venues allow you to use any caterer you wish (with appropriate insurance and licensing), and our list of preferred caterers represents the best culinary artists the Atlanta market has to offer.
Cake – it’s what’s after dinner. We think of our preferred bakers more as “cake designers” – after all, each wedding cake is a one-of-a-kind creation. After being on display during your reception, it is the centerpiece for one of the most timeless wedding traditions (and some great photos, too). As a bonus, it gives everyone a boost of sugar that will have them back on the dance floor again in no time!
DJ’s and bands do a lot more than just play music – they play an instrumental (pardon the pun) role in setting the tone for your entire reception. They work with us and your wedding planner to make sure the events of the evening run smoothly and on-time, and they keep the party going by playing music that matches the energy of your crowd.
Getting there is half the fun, especially when you make your arrival (or departure) in style. Transportation is a key component of any wedding day, and our industry partners can handle just about any request. Vintage cars, towncars, limos and even charter buses – anything you can think of, they’ll make it happen for you. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
