My vendors in montreal, quebec

My turn to answer these questions! I have been searching high and low, and have found some potential venues, so hoping we are able to book soon!

- How many vendors have you looked into? Which ones would you like to hire?

I think I have contacted minimum 100 venues, most probably more than that, looked into a majority of them (in the sense of obtaining quotes, etc).

- How many vendors on WeddingWire did you contact?

Including venues, officiants, caterers, and bridal shops: 94 Smiley cry Smiley surprise

- If you visited or booked them, share some pictures! Smiley smile

We have visited three so far, 1 of which was a no-go. Two require some more thought and working on the budget/guest list: Lordia restaurant and La Vieille Brasserie. I didn't take photos of those last two, but there photos online. We would require a caterer for La Vieille Brasserie.

I am planning to visit at least two more venues, hopefully they can become potential contenders, it has been a long time without finding something that fits the budget. I know my partner is becoming frustrated, has his own set of wishes, our parents have very different opinions, and their own set of expectations, all of which is becoming hard to navigate so I hope that we can settle on something soon.

    Oh... That's too bad! Have you thought of a cabane à sucre? Would they be more affordable?

    Yep, I've looked out in Montérégie, les Laurentian, near Tremblant, Estrie, Laval, etc.. Definitely more affordable for the most part but still too much Smiley atonished

    Smiley xd Smiley sexy I like the sound of venue expert hahaha!! Yes, I have gotten some very helpful advice, and lots of support, so that's always nice! I am trying to reach out to some caterers, and David will contact some culinary schools now because we do like La Vieille Brasserie, but since you have to bring in almost everything, it can get quite costly. I realize that there is some sort of negotiating that can be done with some venues/caterers, and I have tried with some that were closer to our ideal budget, but most of the time the vendors can't really go down as much as we'd like. I enjoyed negotiating for our house, but it hasn't been as easy to negotiate with venues (makes sense, it's a business, they want to make money!) because I don't know how far people have gone before! Anyways, either way it will work out, it's all a matter of gathering information and adjusting, whether that is adjusting the budget (not very possible), our guest list (not impossible but difficult to do) or everyone's expectations of what our wedding 'should look like' (wish me luck...).
