Cakes!

Hello! I am new to this board! I am working on planning my wedding in Omaha for next August!

I recieved the name of Cake Lady Karen and Grahams goodies to use for cake! If you have used either one of these ladies I'd love to hear what you thought and how your experience was with them!!

Also, Im in the market for a florists and Im just not sure where to begin! I emailed Brandie from Eagle and she is not doing weddings next year and then I also emailed wedding creations by Marcia and she is booked!! Im open to suggestions!
Thanks and I look forward to being  a part of this board!!

    Marcia at wedding creations is booked for next year already?? I'm getting married next September and was going to look into using her. I've heard she's really good! Darn!

    Yikes! I was looking forward to calling Brandie from Eagle for my flowers because I liked her work!!  I haven't looked into cakes yet either, but I guess I better get into action!

    Originially, I checked into Brandie as well.  She is not doing weddings next year.  However, I just booked my florist and she is excellent.  Check out Melisa from Blooms and Bouquets.  She is easy to work with and will do exactly what you want at a very reasonable price!  She has also been a knottie pick.  I'm getting my flowers for $400 when everyone else quoted me for $1000.
     Good luck!

    My boss swears by Cake Lady Karen and passed her info on to me.  I have been told she is very flexible and laid back but does amazing work.

    How disappointing about Brandie from Fleur De Lis in Eagle. She did an amazing job on my wedding. I'm sure that your florist will do an amazing job though! $400 is a great deal!! =]

    My vote is for Karen Brophy ie: Cake Lady Karen.  For flowers, Debbie Pitt is awesome from Flowers For Any Occasion

    I am using the cake specialist...super yummy flavors and great work for good prices.  I liked cake lady karen but she kept flaking out on me when I tried to contact her.  I would be sure to sample all of them :)

    Jane Marsh is an awesome cake lady. She does every size or cake and lots of flavors and delivers and has a flat fee of $300 even if you are serving 500ish people. I  have had her stuff before and it is so good. Luckily she is a friend so I get mine for free!

    Our cake was 176....for both cakes, the flower petals, ribbons, delivery, sample cakes, everything.

    Florists I second Debbie Pitt she did my first wedding.Cake-I also second  The Cake specialist in Bellevue, Jayme is great to work with and there cake is to die for, but I love cake.  I used The cake gallery for my first wedding because thats where everyone told me to go but they are rude and way overpriced! 
  • Can u guys post ur cake contacts info?
