  • I just attended a beautiful wedding at Aria a few weeks ago and everyone stayed at the Marriott in Waterbury. It was very nice and had a great down stairs bar/gathering area for after the wedding. They had the two room suite as well, I believe they …
  • Look up Bill from William Parkinson Events! We met with him a few times and were all set to hire him, but unfortunately our budget tightened and we had to move on without a planner. (Our wedding at Anthony's Oceanview turned out beautifully, b…

  • If you are looking to do a rustic themed wedding on a tight budget check out Capellaro's Grove in Bethel, CT- specifically their Garden Room. They are quite inexpensive as it is, but I am definite that they will work with any budget. This was the fi…
  • I'm guessing you are looking for a male dancer for a bachelorette party? I hired one once when I was a MOH in my Best Friend's wedding from Absolute Men out of New Haven. They were great to work with and I'm sure they'll travel to Hartford. Check th…
  • Elizabeth at Alterations by Elizabeth in Groton! Myself, mother, mother in law and all of my bridesmaids went to her for all of our alterations - all the way from New Haven! She was very well priced, she works quickly, has been doing it for years, a…
  • Yes we also met with him and although he is very nice, his work seemed very dated. He was probably THE GUY to go to.. about 10 years ago. We used Todd Della Bella and his work was great and he worked well with our budget, very fairly priced. We did …
  • Elisabeth- How about Costa Azzura in Milford? They are directly on the beach and just completely re-did their reception room. I've heard from multiple people that they are VERY affordable. The Westbrook elks club could be worth looking into also - t…
  • I used David Ladin from RI Video Pros. He was AMAZING! and is very well priced - I think he'll work with any budget.
  • We are doing our rehearsal at Anthony's Ocean View in New Haven and doing our rehearsal dinner at Biagetti's Restaurant in West Haven. It's a great little Italian place near the water - they do rehearsal dinners there all the time - they decorate be…
  • Yay, another Thursday bride! We are saving THOUSANDS of dollars by getting married on a Thursday - all of our vendors have given us amazing deals. I did a lot of research trying to find a well priced Videographer and Dave from RI Video Pro's gave us…
  • We are using Dave from RI Video Pro's. He gave us a really great deal on his regular priced package since our wedding is on an "off day". His prices were really good to begin with though... And I believe his raw footage package was around $700? Not …
  • There's Costa Azzura right on the beach in Milford too - they just completely re-did their banquet room. And they are just around the corner from Aldarios!
  • Sara Carson - She is awesome! We are so happy we've decided to use her for our wedding. She is so kind and very eloquent and refined. In just speaking to her at our first meeting we felt that she really understood us and our relationship and the typ…

  • We've invited 175... I'm thinking we'll end up with 160-165, we'll see though! So far we've had very few declines...I think the usual minimum for the Rose room is 175, which was above what we wanted to commit to so we were going to take the Lilly ro…

  • If our budget allows for it, we are reallyyyy hoping to hire Bill Parkinson of BP Events for our day of coordinator. We have met with him a few times and he is AMAZING. We really want to use him...we are just a little stressed about our budget right…
  • I'm getting married at Anthony's next month in the Rose room - we can't wait! We originally wanted the Lilly room but it was booked on the date we wanted. I did go to a wedding in the Lilly room last August though and I think it was plenty big enoug…
  • How about Chair Affair in New Haven?
  • We plan to use Sara Carson - she's awesome! The price she gave us is $100- extra $25 for a rehearsal - way under $250!
  • In Response to Re: streatch hummer limo illegal plus church issue: [QUOTE]i am on a shoestring budget and dont want to spend more than 1500 on a photographer i know that can be done but only found a few in my budget but those charge you extra if y…
  • Thanks everyone- I'll look into these suggestion now!
  • If Fleur de Lys is in your budget, I'd say absolutely go with them. I met with them and wish I could afford to go with them!
  • I was just going to suggest Costa Azzura in Milford too! Right on the water and very inexpensive. Also, not sure if it's too far, but Cappelaro's Grove in Bethel is Awesome and not cookiecutter at all. They do have the normal "banquet hall" room but…
  • Cappelaro's Grove is AWESOME. We would have booked there if they were closer. Also, Costa Azzura in Milford is right on the beach and very inexpensive.
  • The new england Fall foliage will be amazing in October! How about North Conway New Hampshire - its beautiful. Tons to do, you can take a nice ride through the mountains on the Kancamagus Scenic Highway. Go hiking, great restaurants, there are even …
