Selecting vendors for your small ceremony & elopement

If you want to include some additional vendors but you aren’t sure where to start, this is a good place! If you still need to select a location, visit this link!

*Please note that due to the coronavirus situation constantly changing, this information or actual availability may vary. I recommend reaching out to all vendors involved to confirm their ability to participate.

DRESS:

You can certainly choose to wear the gown you’d already selected for your big day and that’s what I’m assuming most will want to do. However, if you need a gown I recommend contacting one of the local bridal shops! A lot of them have converted to serving customers by appointment only (virtual or in-person) for safety.

Church Street Bridal (they may have more budget-friendly options)

Celebration Bridal & Tux

Ashley Grace Bridal

FLORALS:

You may want a gorgeous bouquet to carry as you walk towards your beloved and for portraits afterward! I recommend Heather Smith of Fleur by Heather, A few of the local flower farms can still be utilized for gorgeous blooms and she can put together a stunning arrangement for you!

FOOD:

If you need catering for a small group because restaurants aren’t an option, you could check with these vendors for pick up catering/dinner you and your attendees to gather afterward.  

Michelle Ayers of Purple Door Gourmet Kitchen & Catering.  They do fantastic food and have a space in Wyndhurst that they do small events.  

Susan Brown of Suzy Q, Etc. is also a fantastic lady and makes really yummy food available for pick up.

CAKE:

Having a cake can add to the celebration (who doesn’t love cake)! Plan to cut it with your loved ones or save it for the two of you to savor on your own!

April Smith of Smith Sweets, LLC and Heather Cavaliere of Bakey the Cakey have both provided cakes for recent intimate ceremonies and elopements.

PLANNING:

Lastly, I know that this time has been stressful and can be pretty overwhelming! If you just can’t imagine doing all the research and planning, I recommend hiring someone to arrange it all for you!

My friend Stephanie Kavanaugh of Gracefully Created Weddings has an awesome special for couples affected by coronavirus.  She is offering elopement/intimate ceremony planning for $250 and she would be happy to take care of all the details for you.
