With only 6 months to go I am just about to pull my hair out looking for a nice venue in Lakeland. Whaaaaa?The prices are outrageous not to mention I still have to pay to decorate it. I do not want to spend alot of money on things I will never have a use for after the event but my colors pink &brown are costly and in some cases buying looks cheaper than renting. I am looking for reasonable local vendors but so far I am doing everything myself so I do need everything linens,napkins,sashes, centerpieces, the cake, a D.J., dinner buffet items and foods, flatware,silverware, favors..and whatever else I am forgetting..so if anyone knows anyone or places that I can look into please let me know.

I used a very reasonable DJ service. Company was DJ GRAND Entertainment. Look them up on The Knot.

I set up for a wedding in Hollis Gardens. The ceremony was in their garden side which is absolutly georgeous! No decor needed there. The reception we did a picnic style which was nice, just make sure you have plan "B" for anything outside. Hope this helps

I know you are on a budget but this is where using a planner can help a lot, it is there job to know what vendors are where and at what price. So my advice find a planner in that area. For a venue look into parks since they are city run typically you just pay for a permit (which runs average 100.00) the usually have nice facilatities, decor you probably will be doing a lot of DIY but I can help with ideas if you want to just e-mail me.
