Last month, we asked you to share your wedding service providers (venues, caterers, florists, etc.) for anyone who might be planning a wedding.
We received ~350+ responses, and today, we want to share the top recommendation for each category. Thank you again for all your participation – we’ll have to keep this list fresh + make it an annual thing.
Disclaimer: These recommendations do not necessarily reflect the views of AVLtoday or 6AMCity and were gathered via audience participation. AVLtoday did not place any restrictions on participation (i.e. some businesses might have offered discounts or deals to clients who submitted recommendations). Finally, for categories that have more than one top recommendation, we were unable to select a clear winner based on the entries we received.
