loved working with alex and craig!
just rec'd my invitation suite and i am over the moon =)
super affordable compared to other letterpress vendors
reliable, very easy communication, HIGHLY responsive - i never waited over one day, let alone several hours without either a phone call or email
i will definitely be tapping alex and craig to print my business cards, our "married" stationary, thank you cards and my business suite!
BOOK THEM!!! =)
5 star says it all - if i could give Nicole 6 stars i would!
love love love all the designs she had for us!

what can i say about my experience here?
nothing good that's for sure! if i could leave zero stars, i would...
let me start by saying i am overweight - yep - ive got a little more jelly than most girls, but hey - what can ya do?? hahaa
so i arrived for my appointment and described what i was looking for (strapless, lace, kind of "grace kelly looking" and the consultant brought me everything BUT what i was looking for
i specifically said "no halter" and guess what she brought me?? HALTER! oh my...
so i'm a steet 14 - which translated to the consultant's pensive look as if to say - how am i going to find a "fat sized bride size" wedding gown... and i'm sure other gals my size have learned - most sample dresses are a sized 8 or 10 - which really means a street 6 or somewhere in that area...
ok i get it - it's not the bridal store's fault that i cant try on the size 8 dresses, but my annoyance was more in her treatment of me than the availability of dresses
so she found a maggie sottero dress (finally) that fit my criteria - but while zipping me up she says "youre gonna need a girdle" um ok - thanks - like i already didnt know that!
so then i ask her to see how a mantilla veil would look - she looks at me and asks "oh what's that? a new designer?" WHAT?? how does a consultant at a bridal salon NOT know what different styles of veils there are?
i couldnt wait to get out of there - which apparently she couldnt either b/c i didnt put a deposit down on the dress i tried on...
i dont recommend spending any time or money here - the service was horrible and you can find a beautiful wedding gown elsewhere, somewhere else where the staff is courteous, helpful and knowledgeable.
like i said - if i could give zero stars i would, but i'm stuck giving one star - and even that is generous

PART ONE: the 1st part of this review is based on conversation and ordering process i went throught with frosted; part 2 will be written after our wedding in december
call this place pronto!! the amazing stacia, owner and operator of frosted cupcakery walked me through our order and talked me through their own process of making and showcasing their mini-masterpieces, and all i can say is i am floored and so excited to have her making my cupcakes for our reception.
frosted cupcakery offers a myriad of cake and frosting combos and is less dense than other cupcakes

PART TWO: The Event!
stay tuned dec 2009 - i'll hve a full review of frosted - but for now, i cant give anything but 2 thumbs up ;-)
Stacia and her staff were great to work with and the cupcakes were a huge hit! We ordered several different flavors and some of our guests went back for 2nds! If you are thinking of going the cupcake route - definitely keep Frosted in mind - the cupcakes arent "dense" and are more light and fluffy! I'd definitely order from Frosted again!

i have 3 words for tressa - BOOK HER NOW!!!
i had part one of my b-pics with tressa today and had the most unbelievable time
tressa's artistic approach and keen eye makes me confident that my pics will be fantabulous. she showed me a few as we were going along - and even the "rough" shots are amazing - cant wait to see the final product!
tressa's easy going style and calm personality make a great combo for making clients feel at ease
cant wait for the next round of b-pics with tressa!

i ended up buying a mini-leather baseball glove (PIB) for our ringbearer to use instead of the same old boring RB pillow ;-) owner Sally Otsuka was super helpful and delightful =)
there are so many sparkly and stylish accessories in her store, along with amazingly creative greeting cards for the bride, groom and bridal party!
i've giving the store 4 stars b/c:
- Sally is awesome to work with
- selection of items
- high quality of items
not 5 stars b/c some of the items, t-shirts, cards, carboxes are a smidge over-priced
overall, however, i highly reco stopping by - guaranteed you will buy something ;-)

Just had my trial session with Susie and i loooved her work!!
Booked her on the spot =)
Susie isnt heavy-handed and the products she uses are not cakey and photograph well. Susie's rates are affordable and she is just about brighter than sunshine in personality.
My fiance was at the trial with me - and he was really impressed with Susie's work. After my trial, we went to my fmil's house, and she commented on how great the makeup was...
Products used for my trial:
Makeup Forever base foundation
Prescriptives and MAC lips
--------------------------STAY TUNED FOR DAY OF REVIEW--------------------------
Susie and her team were wonderful to work with! Very punctual and efficient! Even without doing a hair trial, Susie nailed my wedding day hair in excellent manner and even tho i was running about 20 minutes late, Susie and her team glammed me and my bms up in no time flat!
Even from the sweat from dancing AND from the many many many tears of joy I cried all day and all night! Even still, my makeup stayed on and didnt get ruined by my tears! I'd definitely hire Susie Chhuour and her team again for any occasion that warranted pro makeup again! Susie and her team were professional, arrived at my hotel EARLY, and did a spectacular job on everyone!
i love bluefly.com!!
i bought white satin stuart weitzmans & rec'd them soon after ordering.
they double charged my card and refunded it within one day - i didnt even notice until i saw my bank statement - and bluefly sent me a message letting me know what happened.
i will continue to buy from bluefly.

I bought all 4 flowergirl dresses from this online store and would do it again! The dress shipped out fairly soon after I paid for them. I ended up buying a pick-up style dress with a green sash - and I was not disappointed when I rec'd them.
The dress was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar styles in the bridal boutiques.
There were no issues with the stitching or stains or anything like that.
Too bad the girls have to wait a little while longer to wear them.
