You said yes, now what?

Finding the one (we mean the gown) is a start, but there’s just a tad more involved. Take heart — we have found the best in the business of delivering marital bliss.

Raise the Roof
You’re on top of the world, and so is your reception at the Glenn Hotel’s SkyLounge rooftop (pictured), home to a killer view of the city skyline (weather isn’t an issue, thanks to the awning). Perks like a complimentary room for the couple, courtesy blocks for the wedding party, and a VIP penthouse suite package seal the deal.

One-Stop Shop
StudioWed’s The Wedding Experience (Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; admission is $10-$15) covers all the bases: workshops in wedding planning (A Big to Do), beauty (P3 Lab), decor (Edge Design Group), and more. Energize with pop-up shops, lunch, champagne, cake tastings (Sweet Sensations), giveaways, and schwag bags.

uncorked glass co!Love, Renewed
Keep your guests happy with overflowing glasses of wine. Save the empty bottles for Uncorked Glass Company, which recycles them into clear or colorful tumblers; get them engraved with the wedding date, so he has no excuse to forget your anniversary.

A Better Investment
In lieu of melon ballers and egg slicers (really?), the St. Regis-try at The St. Regis Atlanta allows family and friends to treat the couple (or vice versa) to memorable experiences like the Wedding Party Wellness Spa Package, Wine Tasting for Two, and Rosé and Romance Bath.

The Reel Thing
Blink and it’s over. Boutique cinematography studio Rodinis Films captures every moment, from the fastening of his cuff links to Uncle Buck’s kooky break dancing at the reception, for an artistic film as breathtaking as your big day.

heavenly dolce!Secret Ingredient
Pleasantly surprise your guests with a tower of booze-infused Heavenly Dolce cupcakes in flavors like pina colada (coconut cake and pineapple rum), silky velvet (red velvet and Godiva), and berry ’rita (strawberry cake and tequila). Request the saucy sweets in mini martini glasses.

They’ll take the cake.
