We had a backyard garden wedding, and we put together a lot of the details ourselves. We built an arbor and landscaped all around it (a lot of work, but now we have a beautiful back yard). We bought cedar boards and cut them to make signs like (wedding parking, Welcome Friends, etc). We bought Shephard's hooks in the garden department, and placed these at every other row of chairs going down the aisle - then we hung mason jars (we painted the insides yellow) with daisies in them. It was an inexpensive way to have beautiful aisle decor.
This was fun to go to when we were first engaged. We collected a lot of vendor information, but thinking back on it, we did not use any vendors that we met here. Not sure if it was coincidental or not, but we didn't end up going with anyone we had contact with at the show.

Friendly instructor, but they don't tell you how much the actual full lessons will cost. They make you sign up for this introduction package which includes a certain numbers of 25 minute lessons, then they teach you just enough and want you to sign up for a package of 8 more lessons for significantly more money. I don't think I would have been as turned off by the studio as I was, except the fact that at the end of the final introductory lesson, the instructor went to get a "manager" who came out and sat down with us, presented the packages and wanted us to sign right then and there. We felt like we were in a used car dealership. Our Instructor was fantastic, the studio, however, was very not classy in the least.
Very good! Driver was friendly & hospitable. He arrived early, and made a stop on the way to the hotel for us! More than reasonably priced, office called & e-mailed the week of to confirm & we got a Thank you in the mail the week we got back from the honemoon! Very impressed, Would definitely recommend!

We rented tables, Chairs, & Linens for our backyard garden wedding. The ceremony started at 12 noon, so we paid extra to have them come set everything up BY 7:30. They did not even arrive at our site until 7:30, and although I provided several diagrams of how everything was to be arranged, they basically brought everything into the back-yard and my husband(fiance) arranged it all. The linens were thin & you could see through them. Luckily I noticed this at their showroom and bought plastic table cloths to go underneath each linen, so the wood table top wouldn't show through. About halfway through the set-up, my mother-in-law noticed that all the chairs (which were white resin chairs) were dirty. So she, my brother-in-law, and some friends helping set-up used windex to clean almost every one. Thank goodness I had folks that were so attentive and that cared as much about that day as I did! After that, everything looked nice & went smoothly. They did come pick the chairs up on time (7:30 that evening), and they did re-fund a portion of our money once my husband went in after we got back from the Honeymoon, but over-all, the experience with them was one of the very few negative ones we had on our day.

We had Jim N Nicks barbeque cater our backyard bar-be-que style wedding. They sent out two servers, who we paid by the hour for 3 hours. Michelle & Dan were great! They made sure the buffet was stocked, re-stocked the drinks, cleared tables as people were through. Dan even helped carry our huge cake down a set of steep stairs to the backyard, and Michelle cut it perfectly! They were both very professional, and were very friendly & hospitable to all our guests! Not to mention the food was great! We had several compliments on the food. Would definitely recommend! On time, Hot food, and above & beyond service!
Did a great job on my bouquet & my Maid of honor bouquet. We did the centerpieces ourselves and the aisle decor, all with Daisies. Willow's florist (Fort Mill, SC) let us purchase 24 dozen daisies, and she brought them by on Thursday so we could start working on the floral decor. Very friendly & responsive by phone. Would recommend
All the Right Grooves did a great job! We had a casual backyard garden wedding at our home, and we wanted to be sure that it was a relaxed atmosphere. They played exactly the types of music that we wanted, and they weren't at all obnoxious like some DJ's are. Both very chill girls, and we likes the fact that given some of our "must have" songs, they picked out other songs with similar styles and added them to the list. Introduced us to some people we didn't know were out there. We had several compliments on the music at the wedding, and several folks that wanted the whole playlist. I would 100% recommend All the Right Grooves! Their laid back style, and willingness to work with what we wanted made for the perfect atmosphere on the wedding day!
She did a great job of reading the ceremony I put together for our day. She was friendly, and was respectful of different religious or non-religious aspects of the ceremony/day. Only complaint was that not all the guests were there at 12 noon when the ceremony was supposed to start, and I guess at two different times she told my mother-in-law & husband (then fiance) that we needed to get the show on the road because she had another wedding scheduled right after ours. I didn't hear about it until later, so I thought she did a great job, but apparently my husband and Mother-in-law were a little put off by the fact that she was rushing because she had to be somewhere else. All in all, she did a great job. very expressive, and read exactly what I wanted her to read in the way I wanted her to read it. Over-all very happy

Who's the Fairest did a FANTASITC job! Kymm was recommended by our photographer, and she exceeded my expectations! She did my hair & make-up as well as the hair and make-up for my maid of honor, and we both looked fabulous! I am not particularly girly, so I was afraid that no matter who did my hair and make-up that I just wouldn't look like myself. We had a full consultation about a month before the wedding, and I told her what look I was going for. Both for the consultation & the wedding day, she made me look so beautiful without looking "over-done". She was so easy to work with, too! I changed the hairstyle on the morning of the wedding,and she didn't even bat an eye. I felt more beautiful on that day than I've ever felt, and it was all because of Who's the Fairest. After sending out some photos from the day with our Thank You notes, I actually had a few guests call me up and tell me that my hair and make-up were so beautifully done that I looked like a model. Thanks to her print-work experience, not only did I look like a "better" version of myself for the actual day, but the photos came out beautifully! Her work itself was gorgeous, the price was very reasonable, and Kymm also carried herself very professionally. She had a very quick response time when it came to phone calls & e-mails. She was flexible when it came to scheduling the consulataion, and she was extremely personable & friendly with everyone getting ready the morning of the wedding. I would recommend Kymm in a heartbeat to anyone wanting the peace of mind of knowing that you are in the hands of someone who will make you look stunningly beautiful for one of the most important days of your life! The best $225 I ever spent!
