I have decided on venues (Space 237 and The Park Inn) and found my dress but now I am need of some suggestions on cake, a dj and flowers. My fiance and I have a pretty small budget so we are going for CHEAP. For the cake, our reception venue ( The Park Inn ) requires licensed vendors, but I think the going rate of over $2+/pp is ridiculous! Am I crazy? Is this not as expensive as it sounds? On a different note, if there are any plus size brides that would like reccomedations on where to go/where not to go for a dress, let me know. As a size 26-30 (depending on designer), dress shopping was a nightmare. I swear I went to almost every store in a 2.5 hour radius of Toledo (went to Cleveland, Detroit, Lansing, etc), so let me know if you want my suggestions!
