In-Suite Reception Help Please :(

Hi Girls! The time is getting closer and I'm freaking out !

Catering:My wedding is in November and I still haven't booked the caterer.. Masterpiece is not able to cater my wedding since it is the day after 11/11/11. Does anyone know of any good cheap caterers? Either buffet or heavy apps?

Music: I am still floating between having DJ Godzilla or just the IPOD?

Decoration: My wedding is in the Vista Suite at the MB. Yes, I am super nervous after hearing all of these compliants! What are some suggestions to decorate? I was going to do an aisle runner with purple roses 4 vases with flowers and some candles around the room as well as loose rose petals and some personalized napkins. Do I need anything else?

If there is anything else I am missing please help?

Thanks Lovelys !

    Hello!  I'm not doing an in-suite, but I'll try to help based on what I've heard.

    I believe you can get catering from the following:

    Jason's Deli
    Fazoli's
    Famous Dave's BBQ
    Maggiano's (take-out?)

    I get the DJ v. iPod dilemma (I'm having the same one).  Pro of iPod: you pick ALL your own music and save money.  Pro of DJ: less to worry about, they can "read the crowd" and change music accordingly, little risk of having technical difficulties.  I would say pick what pro is most important to you (not worrying, saving money, etc) and go from there.  There are a few very well reviewed DJs here.

    Have you thought about doing a cake table/guest book, etc?  You can put some fun decorations on there - vase of flowers, pics of you guys, etc.  I just made a photobook on shutterfly last night of our e-pics that I'm planning to bring along for our guests to peruse during the reception :)

    HTH! :)

    I'd go for the IPOD just because of the issues we have (I'm sure you read my post!).

    As far as decoration goes, I think what you have sounds great. The view itself is decoration enough - the suite really doesn't need a lot. All we did was scatter rose petals on the bar/all the tables, and light tealights everywhere.

    I agree with everything pp said.  I will also plug Maggiano's delivery.  The food was hot and on time.  ordering was very easy. 

    I loved DJ Godzilla!  He totally set the tone for the party.

    Decor- We used a bunch of tealights.  The room really doesn't need much.
