We decided to make our invitations and response cards ourself. It wasn't cheaper than buying them it was just more personal and fun in my opinion. Everyone was helpful and friendly each time we went in to buy things. I posted a picture of the completed invitations.

The church is beautiful. It was just something I found online and went to check it out. The event coordinator Josh Holmes, was helpful the entire way through. We didnt even know until the day of the Rehearsal that we had someone assigned to set up the rehersal run through and coordinate the wedding day for us. The location is breathtaking and there is ample parking. It couldnt have been better. We were married in front of the water fountain and it was perfect.

Mike Keating was recommended to us by our Location. THey have worked with him numerous times over the years. We absolutely loved him! He had the dance floor packed all night and we had such a good time. Before the night was over my Husband looked at me and said the DJ was the most fantastic part of the evening. He was so worth it. I have recommended him to other brides. Perfect!
I had them play for the ceremony and an hour and a half into the reception. They were professional and showed up just as scheduled. The only issue I had was they demanded payment from my Mother before they would leave. I had paid them just as the contract stated two weeks prior to the event and had confirmed with them they had received the payment before the wedding. They were apologetic but it was still a bit stressful and uncalled for.
Online vendor for wedding dress labels and embroidery. $20 for my beautiful wedding dress label. Perfect.

They were located down the street from the venue and were easy to work with. They dropped off and picked up right on schedule. I liked them. The only thing I would change was the umbrellas we ordered we old and rusty. That was slightly dissapointing. Other than that they were great and were helpful answering any and all questions we had!

I found Jason's website from a review on an other site. He came highly recommended and was easy to work with. We love the photos and the quality of our pictures.
I do wish we had more of a guideline or instruction on how to pose and such. We realized we missed a lot of photos that we really wanted to take. For example, we didnt get more than 3 of just Bridal portraits. And there are no pictures of each of my Bridesmaids with me alone. We have tons of group photos but none individual with each person. Also, we do not have any of just my parents and I.
I love Jason and the work he did though. I would highly recommend him. I just wish we had a checklist of sorts with ideas for the pictures we wanted to be sure to take.

I had a tough time with Davids Bridal and their customer service. They even lost my dress for 5 weeks on a rack in the alterations dept. just weeks before my wedding. The compensated me with a free preservation kit but I was still dissatisfied.
All in all I loved my dress and the preservation service was quick and easy. I would recommend them because they have a nice selection and their prices are reasonable. I ended up getting the Bridesmaid dresses there too. As well as my undergarments and shoes. It was convenient.
I wish they were more professional overall.
I knew flowegirls dresses were expensive. After looking around at ones that were up to $100 I knew I had to find something affordable and reasonable. I ended up finding the perfect flowergirls dress online for a total of $35! I was estatic. Not only was it cute but it fit her perfectly. I loved all the dresses on cutekiddy.com. I would highly recommend them!
