Alternate title: “How I Fell in Love with Another Man”
Since our venue is pretty all-inclusive, we didn’t need to search separately for a caterer or a bakery, or to bring our own alcohol. All of those things could have saved us money if we had prioritized the money over the ease of paying one place to do all of those things for us. With a longer engagement, I may have been more apt to do more things ourselves. But with only three months to plan and execute an entire wedding, I have been grateful that we opted for the “easy” plan.
Our cake will come from Lincoln Bakery, in Bellevue. More on that later.
The catering and alcohol is done by The Chadwick, with neat little packages tied up with a bow, so all we needed to do was point to our choice of package. We’re opting for the buffet with the house brand bar package, but we did purchase some upgrades, like an additional hour of bar (for $2.50 a person—what a steal!), and a champagne toast to have at midnight.
