Third, It is a very good idea to hire a local wedding planner. It is essential to have someone local who is familiar with the local caterers, florists,and bands.
Baker hired actors to look like happy recovering patients and sit outside playing cards as wealthy families would come drop off their ill. Upon a new patients arrival he would have them write three letters asking for more money from the families and claiming that things were going well. He would send those letters in the months to come, sometimes after the patient had passed away. He certainly never let any patient leave. So as not to add to the panic of his patients he would lock them all in their rooms at the same time every night and that would be the time that the staff hauled off the dead bodies from adjacent rooms. The removal and incineration of the bodies became a nightly routine. He would tell the patients that their acquaintances had been cured and gone home.

This will leave you with fewer options, but it can take a lot of the burden off of you and your family. Other options offer just the venue and you are responsible for everything from paper goods to wine. This means you have a blank slate as far as planning, something a lot of brides love the idea of.
I found the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa online and made reservations. I also made reservations at the new Moon Day spa & Salon located in the hotel’s garden level. I planned the evening such that after our arrival we would be able to check in, spend time in the spa, have dinner at the hotel’s elegant Crystal Dining room Restaurant, go from there to join one of the Crescent Hotel Ghost tours, and finally some light indulgence at Dr. Baker’s Bistro & Sky Bar in the top floor of the hotel before retiring for the evening in opulent accommodation.
Once you’ve chosen your location, you’ll want to start browsing through brochures to find the resort you want. Keep in mind, not every resort hosts weddings onsite, so make sure it says ‘Weddings’ somewhere on the page.
