A wedding is a beautiful thing, but it’s also very stressful to put together. You want to make sure you have the best wedding where you and your guests have the most fun, but it can be overwhelming to try to find the best Montreal has to offer. Here, we’ve laid out just about everything you could possibly need for your wedding, except your venue (that needs its own guide, which we already wrote here).

Flowers

Every wedding needs flowers, from the bouquets to the table centrepieces. You need to choose a florist who shares your vision and can help you create your dream arrangements. We love Luluthia Designs and Atelier Flora. Can’t go wrong!

Caterer

Everyone talks about the food at weddings, so you want to make sure yours is delicious. If your venue doesn’t have its own catering service, or if you’d like to choose another one, we’ve got you covered. Check out the mouthwatering eats from Traiteur Brera and Trout Lake. We’re already drooling.

Bar Services

If you want a bar with pizazz and unique cocktails to impress your guest, you may want to hire a bar service company. We love when we see Brahm Mauer at events, and you will too! Another sharp contender is Les Garçons Speakeasy.

When people walk into the reception hall, you want them to be wowed. Who better to amaze your guests than an expert table and food styling wizard? Nicolina Servello is a personal favourite, and M2U Events does an incredible job as well.

Cake

The cake is super important. You need a gorgeous one that will look great in your photos and you need something tasty so your guests feel like they haven’t wasted calories on an average cake. Montreal has so many amazing options! Lafrenaie Montreal Ouest (or any Lafrenaie location), make beautiful custom cakes (bet ya didn’t know). Bayard Gateaux is another hot contender. Rustique Pies makes gorgeous naked cakes, and Petit Lapin makes the cake that fulfills your allergen-free desires.

You need someone talented to capture your special day, so we recommend Christina Esteban and George Mavitzis. Can’t go wrong!

Wedding Planner

If all this planning is getting to you, you might need an expert wedding planner. We recommend girl boss Tania Tassone from Blanc Events.

Dress

For the dress that will make his jaw hit the floor, Montreal is lucky enough to have a super talented designer Di Carlo Couture. If you’re looking for a wider selection of designers, White Montreal has all your dress needs.

Suit

For the tux that will make her eyes pop, you can’t go wrong with Gaudi. Another Montreal staple is Signor Terry. At both you’ll find incredible service, a knowledgeable staff, and snazzy suits.

Extra Décor

If you want to do more than just flowers, Montreal has a plethora of other business that can jazz up your reception. For gorgeous and glam balloons, you can’t go wrong with Haute Balloon. If you want your love spelled out for the world to see, Marquee Letters is what you need.

Sweets Table

Everyone looks forward to the sweets table, so you know it’s gotta kill! For the sweet side, Mr Puffs has delicious loukoumades, and Bretzel et Compagnie has salty/sweet pretzels. For the salty side, Milano’s will bring over paninis and Dilallo’s will prepare their signature burgers!

Invitations

To get your guests to your wedding, you need beautiful and unique wedding invitations. We love Papier Fashionista, Papier Velours, and Signature Invitation.

Hair

Every gal’s gotta get their hair done for the big day. We trust our manes entirely with Salon Pure and Nuva Beauty and Spa. At Pure, hit up Antoine Vadacchino, Richard St Laurent, Dominika Sokalska, and Jonathan Lee. At Nuva, you gotta go with Maggie Semaan, Angelo Di Pasca, Angela Lambroulia, and Chanel Perugino.

Makeup

Along with the fabulous hair, glam makeup is in order. Steph Carnevale, Elizabeth D’Amico, Ally Zwonok, and Lauren Lieberman all kill it.

DJ

Last but not least, the DJ, arguably one of the most important people of the night. We trust our dance moves with DJ Yossi of Industry Events, Mike DJ Rouge, and Marco Ferri.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
