Tips from the Pros

The Caterer

Pinetree Catering: Creating a memorable catering event includes having the most memorable food! Guests should invest in the best and (partner for the rest). Have a caterer that will be on site of the event from beginning to the end of the event. Being set up for success and doing venue walkthroughs and inspections are key to efficiency, staying on schedule and having the highest level of customer service. Someone who is reliable and trustworthy will ensure your days goes off without a hitch…

The Venue

The Chanterelle on Park: Our best advice for selecting an event venue is to consider a space that fits your aesthetic and can be transformed to suit the exact occasion you’re hosting. Planning a wedding? Find a space that feels authentically true to you, without having to break the bank changing the entire look and feel of the place! Hosting a Corporate Mixer? Find a space that will impress your clients, without you having to do too much legwork. Ultimately your best approach is to consider the style of event, and what will be most important to your attending guests or planning committee, i.e.. food + drink quality, AV adaptability or full-service planning capabilities, and go from there!

The Planner

Georgia, State and Co. Full Service Wedding Planning: “So, you just got engaged! Congratulations, and let the planning begin. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming. First, take a step back, breathe, and enjoy being engaged. You’ll only get to experience the butterflies-before-the-wedding once in your life. It’s important to enjoy the process as much as the wedding itself.

When I first meet with my clients, I ask them to choose 3 things that are most important to them about their wedding. This can be a specific element (centrepieces, venue), a mood they would like to evoke (playful atmosphere, late night party), or an adjective to describe their wedding overall (beautiful, intimate, lavish). This is where you can build the foundation of your planning process. Every time you make a decision, be sure to reference back to your list of important things. This will help you decide which venue is the right fit for your wedding, what DJ fits best with the plans for your day and even your wedding attire! Trust me, it’s a great place to get started.”
