It goes without saying that we will always be inspired by women ran and operated companies, and this one is no exception to the rule! Here Comes the Guide breaks down allll the venue options, including a detailed list of everything you need to know, especially if you’re looking to get married at a rad unconventional and non-traditional venue, which is so 2020, right?
The thing about Colette’s Catering is that they have a real passion for food, which we can obviously totally relate to. They have seasonal and locally sourced menus, and we have truly never tried a bite of something that they’ve created and not thoroughly savored it. Three keywords that you’ll want to relay: Fried Goat Cheese. Drooling.
Want those Instagram-worthy floral arrangements and installations (who doesn’t) without completely going haywire on your budget? Bloominous is giving DIY a whole new definition, allowing you to choose pre-designed floral collections that are outside your typical white roses and hydrangeas for something that will be truly show-stopping!
There’s some things in life that just make sense, and renting your tux for your wedding is one of them. Yes, it’s a special day, but it’s exactly that. One day. Renting a tux allows you to cut costs without having to cut out top-tier style and design. Plus, grooms, if you have 5 groomsmen also rent a tux, yours is free! Cha-ching.
Remember when we mentioned unconventional and non-traditional wedding venues? Hello, this is one of them. Located right on the iconic Hudson River and less than two hours from NYC, this venue serves as the perfect historic and industrial space to let your creativity run wild.
Prim & Pixie
Their motto is “first impressions matter” and if that ain’t the truth than I don’t know what is! Prim & Pixie started as a graphic design studio and has evolved into an entire team of creatives designing invitation suites, signage, decals, escort card displays, and everything you could ever need. They brainstorm some of the most creative designs we’ve ever seen AND will present them to you in the most organized proofs. Every type-A’s dream 😉
Not only is Vanderwende Acres one of the top-tier Delaware venues, it’s arguably the best in the state. The Vanderwende family poured some love into this 1930’s dairy farm in Seaford Delaware and transformed it into the dreamy venue that it is today. With acres upon acres of scenic farmland views, the space leaves endless room for creative freedom. Every planners dream!
