need help for a friend

Hi, I'm a current nor cal knottie who is trying to help out a newly engaged friend.  I posted this on the knot board.

Hello ladies! One of my friends recently got engaged. They are thinking of having their wedding at a relative's house in Freestone. That is near Occidental, Sebastopol, and Santa Rosa. Does anybody have suggestions for places to get rentals, hotels near there, local vendors for cake,flowers, etc.? Any suggestions/ideas are greatly appreciated. I personally am not familiar with the area at all and I think my friend is feeling a little overwhelmed with all the details needed. Also, places to stay away from are helpful as well.


Re: need help for a friend

  • First tell her to start at Brides 'n Maids on College Ave in Santa Rosa. It is a bridal shop that has been there for about 40 years and they have relationships with a ton of vendors in the area. The owner, Wendy, is a great resource. It helps if your friend does some shopping there (if you buy your wedding gown there she will give you a discount on tuxes and bridesmaids dresses, plus accessories usually). There is a flower place on Pacific Ave that is pretty reputable. For rentals there is Big 4 Rents in Rohnert Park that has decent prices. I didn't use them because we didn't get married in the area but I did use them for a lot of events at the JC. I hope this helps!
