If you're looking for a modest wedding dress (with sleeves), this is the place to go! I found several dresses that I really loved, and the one I went with was even on sale for half off. They had a nice assortment of shoes and jewelry, too. When I went in to try dresses on, one girl was assigned to work with us and she was very sweet and accommodating, which made the experience fun and pleasant. They have a woman that does alterations right out of the store, too, but I ended up not needing any.

Kathy was very professional and easy to work with. She runs the business right out of her home and is easy to contact by phone. She had some great ideas for the color scheme I used. The flowers were a little wilty by the end of the day, but I suppose that's to be expected from fresh flowers after a long day.
This was a fun way to explore what was out there, although it was in Logan and we're getting married in Salt Lake. We did get some good ideas, though. I was bummed that I had made an appointment for a free updo that they were unable to provide. They gave away a free wedding, though, and we were entered in lots of other drawings.
My two nieces and new little sis-in-law got lavendar plaid dresses from Macy's for the wedding. They looked adorable. As far as I know, they held up well!

We had a luncheon after our ceremony and we did it at Wheeler Farm (so not really a rehearsal dinner). The venue was cute, quaint, and comfortable. It was the perfect size for our party (about 100), and a fairly picturesque location, too.
For years now I've been wanting a cupcake tower wedding cake for my wedding. There were a lot of options out there, and my mom and I had a hard time finding one that was just right for us. We found a picture of one we really liked and it was from these guys, so we asked them to do the exact same thing but in my wedding colors. The price was reasonable. Everyone thought the cupcake tower was so cute.

Since the invitations all get thrown away anyway, I really didn't want to spend very much on them. These were the cheapest ones I could find, and they were actually really cute, too. I chose a feminine flowery design and my own font for the text, as well as the color I wanted them printed in. We got over 600 and they came down to less than $1 a piece! Included in that price was an innter and an outer envelope. I got to view them online first and make as many changes as I wanted to before they actually printed. The woman that placed our order for us was very sweet, also.
These are very talented make up artists, I think. The girl that did mine was gentle and easy to talk to, and helped me pick out colors that I really liked and looked good on me. She knew just the right amount to put on for my bridal shoot, too. The cool part is that you pay $50 for the makeup application, but then that money goes towards product from them.

Amy was amazing! She's based in Logan, but had no problem coming down to the Salt Lake Valley for all of our planning and coordinating. She tied all the loose ends up, and I know that really eased a lot of my mom's stress. She found little things we'd forgotten and added nice touches herself. She arranged the whole candy buffet table and it was beautiful! She has a great knack for design. She's very nice, easy and fun to work with, and gets things done!

I got three hair-dos done here (a trial run, for my bridal shoot, and the day of the wedding) as well as glitter toes. The girl that did my hair, Laura, was very talented and sweet to be around. She even came in early the day of the wedding for my hair (I paid her a little extra). I was quite satisfied with their work.
