Since our wedding had a Mardi Gras theme, we didn't have a traditional wedding cake but instead had a King Cake, a New Orleans/Mardi Gras tradition. We ordered our cake on pretty short notice as far as wedding cake orders go I guess, but the cake was beautiful. Haydel's even included the supplies to make it into a tiered cake just like a traditional wedding cake would be. There were 4 tiers of 3 different flavors, all of which were delicious. And since our wedding wasn't in New Orleans, they wrapped our cake so that we could have someone pick it up and bring it to us. They gave us no problems on having someone else pick up our cake. And the best part of all was that the King Cake was much less expensive than a traditional wedding cake would have been.

If you are planning to make your own arrangements, this is the site to use to order your flowers. My sister, my best friend, my sister-in-law and I all used this website to order our flowers for our weddings. The flowers always come on time, the orders are always correct and the flowers are always beautiful. What's more, the website is super helpful in determining what flowers are in season (which is great if you are trying to stick to a budget) and how many flowers you will need for bouquets, arrangements, centerpieces, etc., etc. The prices are also very reasonable.

Corrine was great to work with. Her photos aren't super artsy, but we got some really great shots. She took a million photos for us and was fun and upbeat the whole time. She's kinda crazy, but it worked for us, because it got all the guys to smile! She was really laid back and even gave us an extension on the deadline for picking out which prints we wanted after the wedding. Also, with certain packages she lets you have the rights to your pictures, so you can reprint, share, post, etc. as much as you want. All in all, we were satisfied with Corrine's Creations and would definitely recommend her.

Port City Rentals
When the rental company I had planned to use fell through on us the day before our wedding, I almost had a nervous breakdown. Thankfully, Port City had chairs available for us to rent at the last minute. They didn't charge us any extra for the short notice and they were really easy and straightforward to work with. No worrying with chair covers or anything like that. They also provided us with plastic champagne glasses at the last minute for a reasonable price.
