Some of the amazing people we have had the pleasure of working with…

Ottawa Wedding Vendor Recommendations are key to share because they take AMAZING care of our clients. We call ourselves lucky to be able to work with some of the best! Make sure that you check which companies you resonate with the most. Fit is really key. Don’t worry, we’ve included website links and Instagram profiles for you to easily get a feel of each person’s style and work.

Still looking for an Ottawa Wedding Venue? Check out our full list that is in Alphabetical Order.

Planners and Day-of Coordinators

How often do you get to see the family that has come from out of town? Guest experience is key to a successful wedding day, so skip everyone “volunteering” to help with tear down. Expecting guests to do every piece of the day takes away from the overall experience they have too.

But my venue has a coordinator included?

Wedding planners do so much more than you think. Our most Type A clients hire a planner because they want things to be executed well. They then can enjoy the day they are spending so much money on. If you are on the fence, meet one, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Put your guest experience as a priority

When you think of your wedding day, do you want your key people to be running around? Worrying about all the behind the scenes that are happening? Wouldn’t you want them to enjoy the wedding experience with you!?

Decor & Florals

Choose a team of professionals when it comes to florals and decor. While there are options to go and purchase everything yourself such as linens and DIY flowers, we recommend that you look into renting. Not only are you saving the planet, but the quality and service you will receive is also by far worth every penny.

If you must cut budgets and only want florals you can still talk to the companies above, but if you are just looking to speak with a florist, I would recommend reaching out to the teams below. Fresh bouquets and boutonnières at least for the bridal party, save some money, and put something simple on the tables. We promise you won’t regret having beautiful flowers in your photos!

Stationery is so important when it comes to things like save the dates, invites, seating charts, name cards, etc. It’s best to talk to a pro who can help you bring it all together easily. Now, these ladies book up fast but be sure to let them know you are working with Grey Loft Studio and they can usually find a spot.

Bride & Bridesmaids Dresses:

From what I hear, you will need to be looking at dresses pretty early these days. Once you book “us” you should make an appointment to pick your dress. Promise you that your experiences will be far more than you would expect, but if your wedding is in less than 6 months, you may be looking at rush fees, so don’t wait!

Now you could get a portable Bluetooth speaker that dies halfway through the ceremony, or you could reach out to the guys below. (they are all men, so guys works). Highly recommend them if you are going to be booking videography especially, as they have the best equipment and do an amazing job of keeping the party going, just how you like it!

Dynamix Productions (Stephan is totally our vibe & a total professional)

Fresh Events – A really fun Crew

DJ KVN (if you love a good party + Drake)

Capital Events & Entertainment (more old school vibes – we love Jeff)

Extreme DJ Ottawa – We like Stu

Quality Entertainment – The only DJ we like is DJ iLON, so please request him.

Groom & Groomsmen Suits: 

These can usually wait until about 9 months before the wedding. My recommendation is that ALL the guys go and try on suits before picking them for the final day. So many times have we shown up and things are missing or don’t fit (one guy had to wear jeans). Make sure to get the guys organized early for pickups.
