    I am a vendor and just recently came across your company. I enjoy networking and like to support fellow vendor’s/small business/venue’s. It is the right thing to do. Over the year’s I very noticed my particular service is rarely mentioned, if it is mentioned. …it normally cones across as unimportant to the wedding and budget. Basically if there is money left then that is what the budget should be for this service. I find it very odd that my service is so overlooked & unappreciated. Do u know I find it extremely funny because my service & the DJ are the 2 most important service’s at receptions. Have you figured out what I provide? You should show respect to all service vendor’s because we all play a vital part at every wedding. I find it very disrespectful when another vendor provides my service on the side. I wonder how a caterer would feel if I walked around offering her service’s even though food is not my expertise. Oh well I thought you should know. I’ll will still share your company link on my business page.
