  • They were one of the caterers my venue used.  I found my contact there (Jody - I think she may have since left) to be very responsive and my venue really liked working with Currier and Chives.  The food at the tasting was excellent.  I found them to…
  • I used the Bean Counter Bakery out of Shrewbury (I believe they have a location in Worcester as well).  I also went to Icing on the Cake for a tasting - the prices were comparable at Iciing on the Cake (maybe even a liittle cheaper), but we liked th…
  • Our bags were reusable Red Sox bags we purchased from Iparty.  We skipped the personalized water, but put Poland Spring bottles in there (still local)...  Other local items we stuck in the bag included Necco Wafers, Cape Cod Chips, Lobster Lollipop,…

  • I'm a bit biased since my dad and I danced to I Loved Her First and I don't really know the Faith Hill song, so you can guess what I voted for.  However, I really love the Heartland song - I didn't know it before searching for a Father/Daugher dance…
  • We booked in Feb 2009 for our April 2010 Saturday afternoon / evening wedding.  To be honest, we only looked at a couple places total - maybe 3?  We had certain factors that were important to us (parking availability, not having a "gap", timing of r…
  • When I developed my programs, I just googled "Catholic wedding programs" and found a lot of helpful links with content - I'm guessing you can do the same for Jewish program help. As far as the actual printing / design goes - I used Vistaprint.  The…
  • I got my dress from Confetti and Lace in Litteton.  My bridesmaid dresses came from David's.
  • I made mine on vistaprint - I believe I used a postcard type card for this.  So, it was postcard type consistency, not as fancy as my actaul invitations.  That being said, I was able to fit as much text as I needed and I actually had them double sid…
  • I had my make up trial with Ann Marie Kett this weekend - I loved her - she's really nice and my make up came out great.  She's in Worcester.  If you want to give her a call, her number is 508.854.3113www.beautyexpress-makeupartistry.com/" target="_…
  • I don't have any suggestions but wanted to comment on a prior post.  Someone mentioned the Sandy Burr Country Club - I had my reception there in April and loved it.  However, they max out at 150 guests, so you may not want to waste your time checkin…
  • We invited about 185 and ended up at 125ish.  That being said, we had a lot of out of town folks, including many that were on the older side.  So, the decline rate may depend on the demographics of your guest list. 
  • I love Vistaprint - that's where I got my save the date magnets and many other items.  Definitely sign up for the mailing list as pp has suggested - you can get many free items.  That also being said, if you are ordering large quantities, I've found…
  • how did i forget to mention my own bouquet is included as well? 
  • My husband used to live in Burlington, so I've been to that salon.  I went there once to get my nails done and once for an updo for a wedding - both times were good experiences.  I think I recall the updo being a little on the pricey side, but I am …
  • Our wedding was at the Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland - it's perfect for the size wedding you are describing.  They work with different caterers that have a variety of price ranges.  Guests stayed at the Hampton Inn in Natick (about 4 miles away…
  • Check out DJ Ken Drew  http://www.djkendrew.com/ I think he cost us $800 (but that was a 2009 wedding show special) - that being said, I'd guess he'd still be under $1,000 now (and there's no time restriction on his price -  meaning, for us, it was…
  • Totally makes sense.  We actually avoided an Italian type venue for our rehearsal dinner and went with a steak house instead for the same reason.  Unfortunately, I don't know Millis that well, so that was the only suggestion I had.  Good luck!
  • We were really happy with our videographer - Diick Osso.  http://www.rgovideographer.com/ Good luck!
  • If the DJ announces that you have chosen to dance to a song that has been a fav or yours and your father's since you were a little girl, no one will give any thought to the lyrics.  Definitely do it if it has a special meaning to you and your dad. 
  • We had our reception at the Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland - we loved working with them and had a great experience there.
  • I may be biased, because the only weddding I ever attended without assigned seating was a disaster - there was not enough seating for people.  That being said, I would definitely assign seating (meaning tables, not chairs at tables).  As a guest, I'…
  • We used David Barnes photography - he was great to work with (organized, responsive, etc) and we love our pictures!
  • I did not use an Etsy vendor, but I did use someone local.  Check out Cordially Yours in Newton. 
  • I'm not doing it myself, but I will have a seating scroll.  It's 24" x 36".  Can't help on the size font. 
  • October - I think Skyy closed.  I drove by there the other day and there was a new restaurant in it's place (forget what it was called).
  • Check out David Barnes photography - we loved working with him and the pictues were great.  He has a number of packages to choose from.  However, don't feel restricted by the packages - we ended up telling him what our ideal package would be which v…
  • Check out David Barnes - he's in Boston:  http://www.davidbarnesphotography.com/ I had a great experience with him and loved my pictures.
  • As long as you are fine with the indoor option in the event of inclement weather, I would book.  I got married on 4/24/2010 and it was a beautiful sunny day.  That being said, you can't count on the weather being sunny in Boston whether your wedding…
  • I went "the smith family" route too for my save the dates. 
  • I used cordially yours in Newton, MA and was very pleased with the result.  We used an engagement photo for the background on ours, but she does other designs as well if that is not what you want to do. http://www.cordially-yours.com/
