Does anyone have any recommendations or people to be aware of when planning a wedding? Like is there a baker I should pick or one I should run from, photographer, caterer, etc? I am not being mean but we went and tasted Nikki Fetzer's cakes in Delphos and they were terrible. Dry and tasteless. Plus she had 2 dogs, one that slept right next to her oven. She also admitted she was not licensed because they would make her get rid of her dogs. She ripped Alex (Baked to Perfection) to shreds when we were there.'His prices are too high, he doesnt show up to weddings, he doesnt do this, doesnt do that'. My MOH, fiance and I were so surprised she was being so unprofessional. This is the kind of stuff I need to know.

Sex stops
Thats funny! Actually my second time around. Picked a totally different guy. He is everything anyone could ask for. Sex never stopped in my first marriage, I just had to force myself the last 7 years to do it, lol.

We were going to use Leota but there were things we wanted that she wouldnt do. Also, fiance is concerned about her age. Not being hateful really, I have heard nothing but good about her cakes but if she would get sick or God forbid pass away, we would be S.O.L. I figure since he is willing to have input on wedding stuff then I should be happy and let him have a say (once in awhile, at least)

Check out Grants Catering/Wedding Dreams by Linda in Antwerp. They did our wedding not long ago and did an AMAZING job. Linda and her entire staff were great for everything. People were talking about our cake for months after. Everything was so good we had hardly anything left. They did basically everything for our wedding. They did our food (great buffet with 2 meats, 4 sides, salads, rolls, drinks), cake (huge 5 tier, no restrictions), and all decor (ceremony and reception in linens and everything). I had a guess list of 275 and tax and all was just about 4000. I couldn't do it myself for what they charged. Plus it was stress free because they do everything. I/they received a lot of compliments. I think you can have them do just cake or food or whatever, but well worth the package.

Now that I think more...it may have been closer to 6000. Our guest list doubled almost thru the process. So I'm not sure. It was still great price I had priced out doing it myself and it would have been more. She has a website too.

I am getting married Dec 31st and Leota is doing my cake. I use her for every even such a birthday parties and babyshower. Her age shouldn't matter. Anyone could die at anytime at age 5 of 105! I have never had a bad cake or a complaint about tast or texture from anyone. I actually get the "Where did you get the cake?" So delicious!! I think in 5 yrs ive sent a lot of business her way!!!

I agree with you. I have never heard a bad thing about her cakes, only good. Lots of people have suggested her. But its just like we were going to use an old family friend that is a minister for our ceremony and he had to back out because his health is failing. I think that just made him a little leary. Its cool, as long as I get everything else I want!(j/k, I am not like that at all)

Wedding Dreams By Linda is by far the BEST wedding service around here. I worked for Linda for about 5 years. Everything from the food to the cake to the service to the decorations are amazing. You can have anything you like. She definitely gives beautiful weddings and she can give you whatever you want (realistically). I would recommend everyone to her...she will be definitely doing my wedding. Easiest way to do a wedding to btw....plus she is with you every step of the way to make things simple. Just pick out what you want and they do the rest:)
I agree

I appreciate the suggestions! We are staying local because of drinking and driving. We have people that are going to be DDs for anyone that has too much to drink. Since everyone is from VW or very close by we are doing Church (which we booked already) and Reception (hall is booked already too) in VW. We do not want any of my friends or family killed, let alone to know it could have been prevented. Plus we are welcoming children and that means if a parent wants to take kids home and come back it would be almost an hour round trip. I do appreciate it though! I bet you helped someone else out that has been looking for a place like this.

Beth Brookhart has awesome cake...and does a beautiful job. Only problem is she is out of Wapak and I am not sure how far she goes to deliver. She has done mine and several of my friends and all A+ work! Congrats on your engagement, I hope your day is wonderful!!

Wedding Dreams travels all over the place. You don't have to have your wedding in Antwerp because that's where they are based out of. I've done countless events in Van Wert with them and even events that were 7complaining hours away. They have a large fleet of vans and trailers so they can do weddings and receptions wherever you book them:)

I was going to say they travel too. Did the wedding in Defiance and I've been to ones Linda has done in Van Wert, Ottawa, and Findlay. She really does a great job. They come to you and it is SO stress free. My sister and I had great experiences with them and I can't agree more with "former employee"

I agree with bride, Tiffany Spray did my wedding cake and it was awsome! Very yummy and affordable too! I think she has a blog or something you can see her stuff. Can't remember site, but google her name and Cake Crazy and you should find it. she is local too!

Also had Linda Grant do my wedding last summer... the BEST decision I made. She takes about 80% of the planning stress off of your shoulders. Our wedding reception and church were located in Van Wert. They travel to your site and do all of the decorating. The food is GREAT! You have a wide selection of decorations to choose from, which was my main reason for choosing her. I went with Alex from Baked to Perfection in Delphos for the cake. But, I'm sure getting cake through Linda is just as good. By the way, Linda had originally told us Alex did her cakes, but found out that he no longer does them. So, hopefully she doesn't still tell people that, I only found out it wasn't him doing our cake when I called into Baked to Perfection to ask questions and they had no record of me.. lol! Oh well, Linda is still GREAT and such a sweet lady! Good luck.

What about having your own decorations. I am so detail orientated and have everything purchased already. I might want to have someone prepare SOME of the food, serve the food and do the decorating. Does she do as little or as much as you want?

Linda will do anything you want. If you want to incorporate your own decorations and food then she will accommodate all of that to your wishes:)

slushers f***ed up all but 1 of our tuxedos...run from them. they seem like they are really professional and know what they are doing but HA! everyone had wrong sizes, even after they measured them! and like WAY wrong sizes. it was awful. one guy picked his up too late and the shirt was entirely too small they used the wrong measurements...he just had to deal with it.
