I bought my dress at Abella Bridal and, while I love my dress, the staff wasn't very helpful. They took all the dresses I picked off a large rack into my dressing room, and occassionally commented on how the different dresses looked, but that was about it. No help zipping up, suggestions for other styles, or anything. Mostly spent their time talking to each other in the front. Thank goodness I had my mom, sister, and best friend there to help or I would have felt abandoned. Prices are pretty steep as well.
Great place to look at vendors and just get a general feel for the wedding industry. Free food, fun music, great deals-awesome!

Target has so many affordable and cute dresses! I found a great dress online and they were just as great as I expected. Delivered quickly, they fit nicely and are a great buy for a bride on a budget!
Our experience with Sierra-West was not the best. While very attentive at first, when we weren't satisfied with the quality of our ring, getting things fixed wasn't easy. First-our salesman shorted us on diamonds on the band and the mountings weren't straight. So we took it to get fixed, and it came back looking worse! The band was crooked, the inlay was clogged with excess metal and the mounts were still uneven. We talked with a manager who explained that custom rings usually were of lower quality because all of the handwork necessary-but we weren't warned about this at all until then. We finally got the ring back and looking wonderful, and the manager really tried to make it up to us with some free merchandise. For a custom ring--make sure you know what you are getting. Otherwise, the store is lovely, the selection broad, and we eventually received a beautiful ring.

Kara was great! She cut my naturally curly hair right before my engagement photos and my hair has never looked better! She was really helpful with answering questions and giving me new styling ideas. She was honest about which products I should spend more money on, and which I could buy at a supermarket. Kara was really friendly and gave me the best massage while washing my hair. A wonderful experience and worth every penny! I can't wait to have her do my hair for my wedding.
