DIY weddings are good for local economies

posted September 2nd, 2013 by



We bought a local grocer out of their radishes today in preparing for next weekend.  It felt good to make the produce manager say “that’s the kind of turnover we like to see.”  It meant our wedding has an impact beyond us and our family and friends.

Here’s a list of most of the small businesses we’ve been working with to organize our wedding:

Black Dog Smoke & Ale House, Urbana, Illinois
BBQ Sauce

Blue Moon Farm, Urbana, Illinois

Guggisberg Cheese, Millersburg, Ohio

Joseph Kuhn & Co., Champaign, Illinois
Best Man’s suit

Kathy’s Kountry Kitchen, Belleville, Ohio

Maumee Bay Brewery, Toledo, Ohio

Nickles Bakery, Toledo, Ohio
Sandwhich buns

The Fire Inside, Walhonding, Ohio
Pig roast and brick oven pizza
