    MUST HAVE for you wedding day

    Bobby is THE person to have on your wedding team. He works incredibly hard to make sure every detail is perfect. The decor warehouse is everything you could ever want. The food is delicious. He made everything easy and FUN. Our ceremony threw a curveball with the weather, and he handled it without any issue. I really don't think we could have pulled everything off without him. His team is professional and very punctual as well. We can't thank him enough!

Brisket is 50% off the upgrade price and prime rib is 33% off the upgrade price. This is the biggest sale we’ve ever done. BOOM!

Gift

We understand that weddings are expensive! David’s has a massive collection of awesome decorations at your disposal to help curb those costs. Additionally, we have Trade Deal's where if you have already acquired decorations we may be able to work out a trade in exchange for a discount on your ticket. On top of this we also have what we call the “hook up”. If you are interested in a particular type of decoration we do not have we may be able to buy it for you at no cost to you. Honestly I just love getting new toys!
