This was my first choice when we decided to get married. The church is exquisite. There are a few things to think about:
You only get one hour of use, which could be stressful because you have to make sure guests and ceremony are on time.
They book weddings every hour, so you have to be out of there when your hour is up.
Fits 100 people, not including wedding party
No photographer inside of church.

We had the Orchid style invitations. I liked White Aisle because their prices are reasonable and designs unique.
If you feel comfortable with email, online shopping and know what you want, this is a very easy way to go for invitations. I chose what i wanted, emailed them, she invoiced me with proofs and I paid through PayPal. Very simple process.
I would recommend getting a sample. My invitations had that torn edge that we didn't see in the photo. It didn't bother me but my FI didn't like it.
Overall my experiene with White Aisle was excellent.

My vera wang gown was a gift and cost way more than I would ever spend on myself.
So far the service at Saks in Costa Mesa is average, nothing special considering the amount of money being spent. Their fitting times are inconvenient, they did not have the swatches for me as they said and even called to say they hadn't received full payment on the dress when they received the money a long time ago, almost a year ago.
The bridal dressing room is nice and big and we are given a lot of time once we are there.

She does airbrushing make-up. When she did my make-up I could not believe how beautiful she made me look. I never thought I could look that way. People commented that I was the most beautiful bride they had ever seen.
She uses airbrushing technique to even out your skin then highlights to accentuate. She applies eye lashes one at time for fuller, but natural lashes.
She's expensive about $175-200 for make-up in her studio, but on my tight budget it was worth it. I felt so amazing.
