I LOVE j crew - I got my 3 bridesmaids dresses from here, the Sophia in espresso. The quality is great, much nicer than most bridesmaids' dresses. Although I didn't get a super deal, the $150 price tag was very reasonable for a silk dress that is totally wearable after the wedding. I almost bought one for myself in another color! I highly recommend using J crew, and I thought the customer service was excellent. I'm SO HAPPY that bought my dresses through them! I placed one order and they were shipped to 3 different locations, I had a free shipping code too........

We just had our wedding at the Acqua Hotel a few weeks ago, and I just had to write a rave review! The whole day was fantastic, and we felt our wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Our ceremony was on a luscious green lawn on the bay, and the dinner reception was in a beautiful banquet room with hardwood floors and glass french doors leading outside to a brick patio and bay view. The food, catered by D'Angelo Piazza, was delicious and our guests adored the menu. The hotel staff couldn't have been more amazing. And the best part was that most of our guests stayed at the hotel and didn't have far to go when they were ready to call it an evening. We had 75 guests, a perfect size for the venue. I could go on and on about how gorgeous everything was! The hotel has kind of a minimalist zen atmosphere, and was simply perfect for us :) The price is reasonable and well worth every penny. Lauren, the hotel coordinator, is very helpful and keeps everything on track. Acqua is surely a hidden gem.

I have to say, even though i didn't meet with many flower vendors, I did meet with 2, and emailed 8 or 9 total for information. Jane was the best with follow up and personal service, by far. She was quick to get us our final quote and so accommodating to make changes to it. She has a beautiful portfolio, and brought printout photos of the ideas I sent to her when we had our first meeting. Even though our wedding day hasn't come yet, I'm positive that Jane's end result will be lovely and just what I hoped for! She completely understood the modern, clean look we were going for, and she was great about staying within our modest budget. I'm so glad we found her, and I would highly recommend The Wild Orchid to anyone looking for a wedding florist. ****UPDATE: Jane did such a beautiful job with the flowers for our wedding! Everything turned out perfectly, she did such a beautiful job. Very unique and even better than we had imagined :)
