I bought all but one of the materials from Michaels to make my stacker style programs, menu cards, table cards, website cards, wax sticks (for my wax seals) and the big glass that my husband used to make his toast with. The 40%-50% off coupons in the Sunday paper are so useful too. PIB.

Ho Tai was an affordable option compared to some other vendors we looked at. We needed bilingual invitations so I didn't have as many options. I liked that my invitations were contemporary yet traditional.

2 of my cousins had also used Suzanne's Cake & Pastry for their weddings so I knew that they would be a reliable vendor. Their buttercream is so smooth, it looks almost like fondant. My wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. It's very affordable as well. Great customer service as well.

Winnie at Mystic Garden was able to work with my budget and put together color & flower combinations during my consultation with her so it would give me an idea about what the finished product would look like. I was really pleased with my altar arrangements, cake table and head table. My friend used her for her wedding so I knew that they were a reliable vendor. My friend getting married in July, will also be using her.

We choose this church because you do not need to be a member of their church/faith to marry there and you can use your own officiant. The outside looks like a big castle while the inside is so bright and welcoming. Many churches look dark on the inside. My cousin & my friend both ended up also choosing this church after I did. It accommodates up to 450 people.
The church also has a large meeting room downstairs that we reserved to hold a mini reception after our ceremony. The room was partitioned off so we used one part for the mini reception and another part for the tea ceremony.
They have an organ with an in house organist.
We had our rehearsal dinner here. They accommodated our group of 40 in a semi-private area. We were able to make speeches and present gifts to our bridal party without worrying about our privacy. We had so much food. Since it was family style, it was a great way to have both sides of our families mingle with each other.
I went here for a bachelorette party. There were so many bachelorettes there! It was fun. They had the Men of Exotica there doing a male revue show and if you put some money on your bachelorette, they will show her a good time.

I was a BM in my cousin's wedding and I threw her bachelorette party there. We had so much fun! We did the Sin-sation package where they set us up in a VIP area downstairs in the lounge with a buffet and a round of cosmo shots. Then they curtained off the area and we watched the "entertainment." We also did a scavenger hunt and danced. They had more ladies of Asia performances in the lounge. Afterwards, they gave us club passes so we were able to hit other clubs. The only downside is that they make you reserve with a credit card and will charge you $20 for any no shows so you have to make sure your friends aren't flaky.
