The cakes look just as amazing as they taste, so it looks like you really can have your cake and eat it too. @cakesbyanna21

Best Caterer: Proof of the Pudding

Some say the proof is in the pudding; we say the proof is in Atlanta’s votes. After 40 years in the biz, it’s no wonder Proof of the Pudding is your choice for best wedding caterer. Not only is the food amazing, but you’re sure to get a great experience every time. @proofthepudding

Best Wedding DJ: Yvonne Monet

The one-time club DJ quickly moved up the ranks, with radio show host, world traveler and lead DJ at ATL’s hottest nightclubs being just a few of the many notches on her career belt. Now, the seasoned vet can be found spinning hit tunes (hey, DJ, can you play “Doja Cat”?) at the city’s swankiest social, corporate and charity events. If you’re really vibing with the music at your next big wedding, take a peek at the table and you’ll probably find Monet rocking the stage. Basically, if you’re planning an event and want the tunes to be on point, you know who to call—but don’t wait long, the ubertalent books up fast. @yvonnemonet

With 14-foot ceilings and gorgeous crystal chandeliers, The Whitley’s Legacy Ballroom serves as the most stunning backdrop for any swanky occasion. Whether it’s a wedding, gala, luncheon or another social soiree, you’ll love the expansive ballroom’s charming outdoor terrace, overlooking the Atlanta skyline, no less. It’s the perfect backdrop for raising a glass to whatever exciting venture or celebration you might be toasting. Cheers! @thewhitleyhotel

Best Engagement Rings: Solomon Brothers Fine Jewelry

This family-owned jeweler is our go-to when it comes to finding precious pieces—and it seems Atlanta agrees.

Best Place for a Bachelorette Party: Pink Poles

Take it from us: Your bestie’s bachelorette party is the perfect excuse to put your pole-dancing skills to the test. There’s no one we trust more than Pink Poles. You may not look as natural as J.Lo in Hustlers, but you’re sure to leave with plenty of mems. @pinkpolesstudio


Best Stationery/Invitations: Paper Daisies Stationery

Whether you’re shopping the online collection or opting for something more personalized, you’re sure to say “I do” to Paper Daisies Stationery. The paper company can help your Pinterest board come to life. This is some very important snail mail. @paperdaisiesstationery

Best Place to Buy a Wedding Gift: etúHOME

The company offers three different service options, including renting just the Airstream trailer sans the bar; getting the trailer and the bar (the company can provide all bar elements, from bartenders to glassware); or, the creme de la creme, opting for the trailer and customizable draft menu, plus seasonal cocktails to get your guests buzzing before hitting the dance floor. Whatever you choose, Hitch can handle it all—no need to lift anything but your drink. @hitchatlanta

Best Wedding Wow Factor: Balloonacy

It looks like the balloon trend is here to stay, and we aren’t mad about it. The wow factor—and instagrammable moment—is really popping off. And for us Atlantans, Balloonacy is here with designs that can be quirky, elegant and everything in between.

Best Wedding Videographer: Thomas Vision Films

We can’t remember what it was like to scroll through Facebook without coming across at least one wedding video—the sentimental clips are pretty much mandatory in today’s digital age. And, when it comes to creating wedding videos both sweet and shareable, Thomas Vision Films is Atlanta’s choice. Tissues at the ready. @thomasvisionfilmswed
