My husband and I met on match.com so we knew when it came to favors we had to do match boxes!! We searched the internet for weeks to find the best place and we finally ordered our match favors from Wedding Things online. We ordered the colored boxes with the foil Monograms/date on them. They turned out really nice and looked really sharp with our colors. We were very happy with the turn out and everyone thought it was such a cute idea. We were glad we found that sight!

This is my favorite place to go, so we went there for a Bridal Shower dining evening, and it was a blast. If you go on Thursday nights they have wine tastings and they are really fun. They are located right next to a cheese shop and they do cheese tastings as well so it makes for a fun and unique night out with the girls. Their food is American, but it's upscale and nice, with fresh entrees and unique appetizers...and of course delicious wine. I highly recommend this place for a special night out! Every time we go we get great service.

This was a life saver for us because we were not experienced dancers. It was fun to learn the actual techniques and know what we were doing. Guests were impressed at our wedding too! The instructors were great, you could tell they were experienced dancers and in really great shape. They would show us what to do and then let us try it, coaching us along the way. We learned a ton and had a great time doing it! Pricing was decent too. We will definitely go back again for fun!

It was nothing exciting but it was nice and we had a Cadillac Escalade limo which looked really cool driving around town. The driver had a special little "red carpet" that he rolled out for us and made us feel like celebrities. It was pretty cool. Other than that it was just a normal limo, driver was polite and seemed experienced and professional.

We were crazy and trying to save some money in our budget so my Mom, sister and Grandma and I made all the flowers for the wedding. They turned out beautiful but I would NOT recommend this to others. It was so stressful and so much work righ tbefore the wedding and I was not able to relax and enjoy the time with family as I shoudl have been doing before getting married. Of course it took way longer than planned, and we were up late the night before the wedding finishing up. We saved probably $2000, but looking back I would have paid double to have someone else do them for us! Don't DIY with this one---not worth it. (SAm's club was wonderful, and allowed us to order the flowers wholesale and we put them all together, this bad review is more towards doing the flowers yourself than Sam's, they were pretty good through it all although they could not get in some of the flowers I really wanted).

We are big outdoorsy type people and wanted an adventurous honeymoon, so we flew out to Colorado. We stayed in Bear Claw condominiums, right at the foot of the mountains. It was breathtaking! We are big skiers so it was the perfect location for us to stay and be so close the mountain you could walk out to the slopes! They had many places in town including a spa, nice restaurants, and shopping so there was never a dull moment. We also went on a real sleigh ride in the beautiful powder snow! It was so romantic. If you are adventure-seeking and outdoorsy, you'll love Colorado. The views and the scenery are absolutely breathtaking. Bear Claw condos are spendy but really nice places to stay, they are spacious and have kitchens so you can bring in your own food, which was nice for lazy nights when we didn't want to go out. They also have an outdoor hot tub which you can sit in under the stars :)
We loved our wedding photographer, Abbey. We met with several photographers to find one that we meshed with and we knew shortly after meeting her that she was ours! she has a fun, quirky, and genuine personality that made it really comfortable for her to be around us the whole day (and our engagement shoot)...she took time to get to know our relationship personally and captured pictures that are us as a couple to a T. Our albums are filled with beautiful memories and photos that stir our emotions every time we look at them. I would recommend her a thousand times over.

this place has so much hype for being a great jewelry place around the twin cities but I have mixed reviews about it. My husband says he had a very pleasant experience picking out my engagement ring there but when it came time to find a wedding band for me was where the problems started. I didn't want a ring set, I wanted a solitare engagement ring and a unique band. They have all this talk about designing their own rings and all this but when I questioned them whether they could find a band like I was thinking of they just said we don't have anything like that...they never mentioned designing me own or anything. I finally settled on some bands I liked and they were supposed to order them in from another store...well I checked in twice and both times they had not been ordered. A few WEEKS later I got a call saying they were in and I stopped in and they were the wrong bands. I was livid. Our rings are gorgeous and I am very happy with them but we've decided to go elsewhere for other high-end jewelry needs.

We stayed here for my bachelorette party. This place is pristine, so nice and "expensive-looking" if you know what I mean. It's in a great part of the city because there is always something to do in downtown Minneapolis. We walked to the Melting Pot for dinner and then went to a few bars downtown that night. The rooms were so nice and clean and it never felt like we were staying in a hotel...although the price was as if we were in a villa in Italy! It wasn't bad for us all to split, but alone it would have been outrageous for two nights. It was well worth it.

This is a hole in the wall bar in a college town but it is my husbands favorite so the guys went there for some beer, good food, games, and whatever else guys do for bachelor parties! They wanted a semi-low key night and it is the perfect place to go. Of course they picked a night when there was some kind of sports on tv to watch, and their night was set. This place has the best food, especially their burgers and they have yummy fried pickles. I even like to go there! It was a great place for them to hang out for the night, with a good location close to other bars and hotspots around the area.
