Braham Event Center Wedding Blog - 5 Questions to ask your venue

All venue coordinators have favorite vendors that they like to work with. And chances are, those favorite vendors are familiar with the space and know what works best in terms of lighting and other logistics. You may have your preferred vendors and that’s great. At the Braham Event Center, I love getting to work with new wedding pros that I have yet to meet, but if couples ask for suggestions, I am always ready with the vendors that I know can make things a breeze, and that consistently deliver a great experience for couples at our venue. For a list of my favorite vendors, see below!

 

DJs:

Below are the favorites of the couples that we have worked with, and both have fair pricing, are good at getting guests on the dance floor, and work well with couples to compile a playlist for the night. Give them a call!

Chairs & Chair Covers

Although we provide chairs (and tables) in our rental package, some couples have opted to rent cute chairs and have them delivered to the center. Other couples have rented spandex chair covers. You can find all kinds of companies in the metro area, but below are two companies that we have enjoyed working with.

Ceiling Drapery, Linens & Decor

Yvonne with Encore Events is fantastic! She drapes ceilings in ballrooms and venues across Minneapolis and St. Paul and happily makes the trek up to our center as well. Our ceiling is higher than most venues, and she handles it with ease. Give her a call and she will talk through all ideas and details. Yvonne also has decor and linens for rent.
