Just engaged! Looking for the best vendors in LA

Hey guys I just recently got engaged.  I am a bit nervous about planning this whole thing.  What are the best vendors/websites (other than theknot!)/or places just to find things out.  We are still figuring out our budget but we are hoping everything will be mid-priced!!

Thanks :)

    Try searching this board for the vendor types (i.e. florist, DJ, etc.) and you'll find recommendations from previous conversations. Good luck and have fun!

  • Hi!! congratulations!! we used bob gail entertainment - allyson levine was awesome - i recommend getting the package where they do errands for you , help you with things like tying bows (if you are doing your own reception cards and seatings) - i organized my wedding, my mother wasn't helpful so in the end i needed help from them - they ran errands, picked up super glue, brought pics (that i wanted to hang in the reception hall) to the framer - the day ran smoothly - we had it at casa del mar - i would recommend having it there as well - the best videographer is matt odom www.rockandrollhearts.com - he's incredible - i liked our photographers but i wish they listened to me more - here name is judy tran and her images are awesome - her husband is gavin (gavin photography) and i don't like his stuff as much - he came with her as her assistant and i felt like we got more of his style than hers  - but i'm sure if you tell her exactly what you want and drive it home (more than i did) you will get great images - 

    LAST - I am selling an incredible dress that i never wore - i intended to wear it for the reception and the day just flew by so i never got a chance to change - it is from hanna hartnell - it's gorgeous and i would love to keep it but it doesn't make sense financially - it sells for 3K but i am selling it for 2,500 or best offer - it is her swan dress - don't know if that is your style but you can check it out at  http://www.hannahartnell.com/bride.htm -  i am a size 6-8 - let me know if you are interested  - [email protected]

    hope you have a great wedding!! i have tons of other advice if you need it!! Smile
