I didn't want to wear a tuxedo at my wedding and I decided on a few nice neck-ties in it's place. My idea was to have a black suit, black shoes, white shirt, and a red tie for my big day. I had my own suit, and one of my groomsman had their own also. Unfortunately, we had two other groomsmen that needed rentals. I went to the Men's Wearhouse and they only rented out tuxedos. We ended up going to Ling's and picked out a black suit. They provided white shirts, ties, and shoes too. We got our rentals in a week. One of my groomsmen didn't like the length of the jacket, and they were able to provide a longer one the next day! Now that's flexibility. Additionally, they do tailoring there, and they helped me hem my pants to give my suit a nicer fit. Price was a bit high, but I trusted these guys to do a good job, and so could you!

I rented my chinese wedding dress at Ling's. Connie is super helpful. You can also have your chinese dress made here, but I was under a time constraint. They have very pretty silk patterns if you want a dress made and have various chinese dresses for rent. You can also rent various items for your wedding banquet here (i.e., kneeling pillows for tea ceremony, double happiness wall cover, etc.).

***This review is solely for my wedding chipao, as I had everything else taken care of already.***

I already know how crappy the cheap chipao in most Chinatown stores are (especially since I own one already). For my wedding, I wanted a silk chipao that would look high-quality AND would last me for years to come. After doing some research, I decided to go with Ling's. Connie is wonderful to work with. There were plenty of fabrics and trimmings to choose from, and I was so happy to have a custom-made dress that fit me perfectly! We had several fittings and Connie's workmanship is flawless! Remember though, you definitely pay for what you get. Every extra trim or modification will cost you extra.

Mr. Ling is a very nice man, but also extremely pushy. My initial consultation was with him, and he kept trying to push trims that didn't really match with my dress fabric. I was adamant about what I wanted, but he didn't seem to hear me. He also kept pushing my husband to order a tux from them - when we said he already had one, Mr. Ling told him to order suits for work. He also kept pushing their photography service, and actually sat us down at his computer to show us their sample works. I was clear that we had a photographer, but he insisted that we keep Ling's in mind - "just in case."

Um, no. I already put hefty deposits on the photographer I LOVE. Stick to the dresses, please. In any case, Connie is wonderful and my chipao was lovely!

I had two weddings in order to acknowledge two cultures, and both times I used Ling's for my hair and makeup. When my maid of honor got married, she also used Ling's. Carole does a fabulous job for a fabulous price! She personally trains her team, so they learn her techniques. Carole always personally does the hair and makeup for the bride herself. She also provides the bride with a hair and makeup trial. On the big day, she and her team came to ME at my hotel, for just a small travel fee.

After comparing prices and talking to plenty of former brides, Ling's came out to the BEST deal for top quality results. The hair style looked beautiful and in-tact from the wee hours of the morning until late into the night, even after all the dancing! The makeup also remained flawless! All of us --- five bridesmaids and I --- couldn't be happier!
