      The question has been asked, the answer has been given, now the planning work begins. Make this part of the process as easy as possible and let the Columbia Bridal Associates (CBA) do all the hard work for you.

      The heart of the CBA is made up of of Columbia's finest wedding vendors that provide services in different categories. From Columbia wedding venues, to florists, DJ's and photographers each of our members has come together to make your planning process the easiest that it can be.

strict vendor criteria

      One of the hardest parts of the wedding process is making sure that your vendors are people that are actual professionals and will not leave you dissapointed. You can do this by spending countless hours scowering the web for reviews and asking around to anyone that may know, or as an alternative you can let the CBA's strict standards do this for you.

      Each vendor that is a part of our association not only goes through the strictest of peer review processes but also must be approved by our board of directors who in some cases have lifetime and/or generations worth of wedding experence. This strict selection process can give you the utmost confidence in knowing that selecting a CBA member means you are selecting the best of the best.

Columbia Wedding Venues

      Selecting the perfect location for your Columbia wedding can be a truly hard task. Does the venue have enough space for my guests, does it provide catering, chairs, outdoors, indoors? All these things to consider can make this process incredibly difficult.

      The CBA has divided our wedding venue categories into many subcategories in order to make this process simpler. Start dwindling your venue list right now by selecting a category below

  • Wedding Venues - Full Service (provides on-site catering. etc.)
  • Wedding Venues - Limited Service (just the venue, you provide the rest)
  • Country Clubs
  • Hotels - Full Service (large ballrooms, catering, sleeping rooms)
  • Hotels - Limited Service (small meeting rooms, sleeping rooms)

No rules

      There are no rules to using any of the services and/or members of the Columbia Bridal Association. Need only a few vendors such as a Photographer and DJ? That's fine, select one of our members and know they will work well with all of the other non-member vendors that you have selected. Need ideas for your Columbia wedding? Feel free to use our website and/or request our planning guide.

wedding vendor relationships

      As you look around the internet you are bound to find horror stories of how certain vendors did not get along with each other and that their sour relationship ultimately impacted the wedding in a negative way.

      The CBA promotes strong vendor relations and holds bi-monthly meets where the vendors can interact and also learn together. In addition to these bi-monthly meetings, there are also a few association sponsored get-togethers each year where all the vendors just hang out and have fun in order to further strengthen these relationships.

      These strong vendor relationships can not only work to insure there are no problems but can also actually make your wedding better. The energy that is shared and shown between our members only grows as there are more and more of them together.
