Preferred Wedding Vendors

To assist you in your wedding planning, below you will find contact information for some of our favorite wedding vendors. We have experience with all of them in one way or another and can recommend their services to you with confidence.

RENTAL COMPANIES

We are pleased to partner with the following rental companies for our wedding packages based on our experience with them as having quality rental items and exceptional service. If you prefer to take care of the details of your wedding yourself or have decided on another venue, we highly encourage you to contact these either of these folks as a starting point.
For large, upscale rental of tents and furniture on a regional basis, we feel you just can't beat T.R.U. in terms of both their professionalism, planning services and variety of product offerings. Most pictures of more elaborate events held at The Ruby Lodge contained in this website are a reflection of T.R.U.'s work. Contact Jane Elpers, CERP, Event Design Coordinator at (877) 570-8368 or visit their website at www.trueventrental.com.


For smaller events in the Madisonville area, we highly recommend NOEL PROPERIES, LLC. Service includes deliver and pick-up of tents, tables, chairs, linens and more. Contact Ronnie Noel, Owner, at (270) 836-9200 or noel55@bellsouth.net.

BAKERS & CATERING

ROCKSAN'S CAFE & BAKERY is one of our favorite places for lunch and absolute favorite when we have a sweet tooth for its great selection of homemade cakes and other treats. Open 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., M-F. Rocksan's makes beautiful wedding & grooms cakes and offers catering services as well.

BROOK HOLLOW CATERING

Brook Hollow Catering provides not only beautiful wedding and groom's cakes, but also offers catering.
Just an helpful idea...when planning the day of your wedding, don't forget about food for the bridal party and helpful family and friends! The wedding is at 4:30 p.m. and you want your bridesmaids and groomsmen to arrive at 1 p.m. for pictures: trust us, most will want (and need) to eat before the wedding. About the easiest and crowd-pleasiest thing you can do is order a Sub Platter from SUBWAY. We have 2 locations in Madisonville. Call (270) 825-1333 or (270) 821-7827.

RECORDED MUSIC & DJ SERVICE

SONGBIRD ENTERTAINMENT is our favorite DJ due to their understanding of the requirements of our venue and ability to generate a really good time for the bridal party and guests. Songbird is our exclusive provider for DJ service for our Premium Wedding Packages and can provide additional services including music for the ceremony, big-screen video & slideshow presentations and a new Magic Memories Photo Booth for your guests to enjoy. Added pluses to their standard DJ service are the ability of the bride to choose much of the playlist online and karaoke, if you dare, is included!

BRIDAL REGISTRY, BRIDAL PARTY GIFTS & GUEST FAVORS





THE GIFT HORSE is our favorite spot to find a wide range of unique gifts...and its located only 3 blocks from Ruby Lodge!

36 W. Lake Street
Madisonville, Kentucky 42431
(270) 825-9333

CLEMENTS JEWELERS is a long-standing family-owned and operated business offering a wide range of quality bridal jewelry and gifts.

36 S. Main Street
Madisonville, Kentucky 42431
(270) 821-7404
One of the most useful guest favor ideas we have seen is Old Navy's Classic Women's Flip-Flops. These flops come in 15 colors to coordinate with your wedding colors and are a fun (and functional) alternative for your female guests that didn't completely think through the complications of wearing spiked, high heels to an outdoor wedding! At only $2.50 each, its a great bargain.
Another fun and useful favor for all of your guests is a keychain flashlight. They are available all over the web, come in a multitude of colors and can be imprinted with the Bride & Groom's monogram. As Ruby Lodge is surrounded by a lake, not an ocean of brightly-lit parking lots, these lights really come in handy for your guests as they head toward their cars at the end of the evening and can be purchased for around $2.00 each for orders of 100 or more.
