  • Try the Opera House, bet they have some spectacular singers who can sing anything, not just opera.
  • If you're going to the Ballrooms at Boothwyn ask for Tim. He's one of the 3 brothers who own it. Great customer service! My daughter Carly walked out of our meeting with him and said "that's where I want my reception, it's not only pretty and afford…
  • Ballrooms at Boothwyn--my daughter is having her wedding there and they are getting a great deal not to mention the people who run it are great! Which was one of the biggest +'s -- we're very picky about the attitude of the people at the venue when …
  • what price did they quote u? (if u don't mind sharing) you can email me at [email protected] if that makes you feel better about it.
  • I know the Radisson's casino is only supposed to be open to hotel guests.  Not sure how that might effect your fiance's plans or if the group is staying there.  They have good food at the Radisson for general food not sure about their wedding food. …
  • Love the Ballroom at the Ben, it's out of our price range but it's a gorgeous place!  The Marriott near City Hall is fine for a hotel, but I've never been there for a wedding, just when I've worked parades for New Years and didn't want to travel bac…
  • http://www.thetreehousecamp.com/reservations.shtml You could try this campground, very cool place to stay! Caverns, Swimming and Tubing Fishing, Antique Shops, Raft and Canoe Trips, Brunswick Railroad Museum and Horseback Riding all within ten minu…

  • not sure where you are planning to go on your honeymoon but how about having a travel shower for things like luggage, honeymoon stuff, maybe gift certs for restaurants where you're going etc?  Either that or register at Bed Bath and Beyond, I know t…
  • (not dissing Martins at all, this is just some additional info) I ran across this biz the other day on the web, they send you cameras but will do the editing and music etc for you.  No prices on the web, have a phone call in to talk to them though. …
  • ck w/the historical society, they have a lot of listings too.
  • anyone willing to give a ballpark price for makeup for bride and each bridesmaid? and MOB? TY.
  • I think it's the historical society in Haddonfield, it's on King's Highway near the high school, pretty brick building (obviously historical). Not sure what their prices are now but they used to be quite reasonable. Ditto Bank on Main. It was too fa…
  • I'm sure the ladies would use it more than the men, but it wouldn't hurt to have some things like bandaids, shout wipes for spots, small sewing kit, hair spray?, breath mints etc. for the guys. 
  • Two suggestions: If you aren't locked into a meal plan that included breakfast at your hotel there used to be a bakery on Main Street where you can pick up pastry, bagels etc, price is right.  The next is NOT an economical suggestion but not over th…
  • There's  a place in Philadelphia that makes custom corsets, not sure exactly where it is, but you could probably find them on the net.
  • Went to a wedding where they did not test the bowls their floating candles were in--we arrived at the reception to find all the centerpieces shattered and water everywhere--so test the bowls/vases you plan to use and for a time period longer than yo…
  • Sorry to hear that some of your friends won't be able to make it due to the dates being the same, but look at it another way, you can invite some other friends or family that you had to cut from you list the first time.  I know it's hard when stuff …
  • My sister got married at my venue (Tavistock CC) a year after I did, but it wasn't a big deal because our weddings were at different times of the year and were just different.  I suspect you'll find yours will be too.  Go with it if it's your dream …
  • Truly Custom Cakery made a great one recently, ck their facebook page or blog, It's a batmobile. of course that isn't all she can do--touch base w/them and see
  • Talk to Tim at Lia's, they are super nice and have a lot of options for food. You can definitely get $85 pp all inclusive. Lia's has several rooms they do work for but The Ballrooms at Boothwyn look the newest and most attractive(IMHO). The first ti…
  • I don't know if they do brunch receptions by the Wm Penn Inn up near Normandy Farms near Plymouth Meeting Mall has a great brunch!  Don't know why they couldn't manage to do a brunch wedding, would think it wd free up the room for a wedding later th…
  • This is a pre-wedding experience but scary just the same. Went w/one of my best friends to see the gown she was planning on buying... ok, she'd gone shopping w/her sister in law who is very conservative so I'm expecting a reasonable dress. NOPE! T…
  • Wow wish we had a 12 grand budget! Depends on your locations what you can do w/that budget and how many people u r inviting
  • Wow! I had no idea it looked so good!  We'd looked at the American Swedish Museum which is inexpensive and has large outdoor areas as well, but this looks better yet!  If anyone has info please email me ([email protected])
  • Talk to the garages in the area, there are several that aren't too far away that aren't as expensive as some of the others, you may be able to work a deal with them since it's a weekend and so there aren't as many business parkers.  The price isn't …
  • Agree w/Colonial Dames, if it had totally been up to me my daughter would have had her wedding there, but her fiance didn't like it.  Ck out places in Fairmont Park.  The one thinng I've heard about Richmond is bad parking (cars getting broken into …
  • From my vast experience (and since I'm a MOB I've been to more than a few weddings), the main people who love favors are any kids you invite! (of the female variety!) Either that or food of some kind, candy seems to be a favorite.  But some brides f…
  • Check w/yr new employer, I know when I worked in Philadelphia my employer had cheaper parking available for employees, and especially if you are working weekends or arrive before a certain time you will get a break on parking.  I worked at Jeff and …
  • We were bummed out my daughter's florist only had sprays of rhinestones (yuck) (or at least the ones she had were yucky). We ended up doing w/out.
