I had a girl from the M.A.C counter at blooming-dale's come and do my makeup. She did an excellent job highlighting all my features without making me seem painted. I found the service very friendly and professional. She gave me tips and suggestions to keep my makeup in order all day. The price wasn't bad either. I think it only cost maybe $30 more for her to come to the house.

I went into David's Bridal to pick out a dress. The people there were very professional, but i couldn't help feeling that they were a little cold. They listened to my suggestions, but pushed me towards an extravagantly expensive dress. I was given a half broken corset to put on under the dresses, even though i definitely didn't need it. (I was 102 lbs) The alterations were WAY overpriced too.
I went to see how much it would be for simply alterations at David's Bridal and i was shocked. I don't remember how much it was now, but i decided not to do alterations with them. They try and rope you into it if you buy your dress there, telling you what a great package deal you are getting, but its not true. In the end, i had my grandma hem my dress.

I went on the Alfred Angelo website to find my dress. I loved all the designs. If you look for a wedding dress, after a while they all start to look the same. Alfred Angelo was different. They had so many different styles that would fit nearly any body type, age, or preference. The quality of the dresses are also amazing. My dress had a thin, silky chiffon overlay that was stitched with such tiny stitches you couldn't tell they were there. The dress i settled on felt light and breezy even though it was full length with a train.

I was delighted to finally find a website that sold reasonably priced children's dresses! I had sifted through so many other vendors, and most of the children's formal wear topped $80. The dresses i chose for my flower girls were about $40. It was a simple taffeta with a colored sash. The quality of the dresses was wonderful. The sizing was pretty accurate too, none of the girls had to have their dresses altered. I found the accessories to be lacking though. The items they had to offer were simply not very pretty.
I really liked the designs of Us Angels. They were so cute, but a little pricey. My problem was that i had multiple flower girls in all shapes and sizes. I ended up not going with US Angels because the price was too high for all my different flower girls. I would have loved to have bought from them though, the dresses are pretty and unique.
I love this website. I found by designer dress on this site for only $300. I also used it to get the bridesmaid dresses. They had a great selection, which helped me match the bridesmaid dresses with the junior bridesmaid with the sash on the flower girl dress.
They also had a rush delivery section, which i found incredibly handy. The quality on all the items was great.

We rented all the tuxes for our wedding from Mr. Tux, even the ring bearer. At first i had no idea what i wanted, but they had a great display and catalogue so i could get ideas. The salesman worked with me patiently, trying combination after combination on a mannequin. He even helped me get a certain kind of shirt in ivory, just like i wanted. They were a little pricey though, costing $90 to $100 per rental.

The place was BEAUTIFUL! I loved the gorgeous dome shaped sanctuary. It was a little run down, but i didn't mind. There was a convenient place for me and my bridesmaids to get ready, and also a room for the guys too. The staff was super helpful and the technical stuff (music, lighting) went wonderfully. We did have to be out by 10:30, which really dampened things a bit.

I went into this cute little shop on miracle mile in Coral Gables (Near Miami, FL). I couldn't get in right away. They had an HOUR WAIT. We had lunch and came back. The service was friendly but rushed, even though i didn't see too many people there. I found my dress but didn't get much help with accessories. The only accessories there were very generic and did not match my dress. They were selling it for a very high price too. I ended up going online and finding the same Alfred Angelo dress for $300.
