Yuko Ebina Designs
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Yuko is not a jeweler for wedding rings, but she hand makes beatuiful necklaces, earrings and bracelets that can be worn for wedding day jewelery for a bride or her bridesmaids. She is an up and comer who was recommended to me by a mutual friend. I had her make three necklaces, one for my maid of honor and two for me, and they are beautiful. Since she makes everything, she can customize any of her jewelery to your specifications- stones, length, colors, etc. I dealt with her only through email but I found her to be very responsive. I emailed her photos of my dress and my bridesmaid dresses and she gave me her suggestions for colors. It took only about a week and a half to get the finished product after I finally decided what I wanted. I think her prices are reasonable, especially compared to what bridal shops charge.

Renee Strauss
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
So far I have had a very good experience dealing with the ladies at Renee Strauss but I have not ordered my dress yet, so we'll see. I fell in love with a dress that was only on loan for the weekend but when I called on monday, they offered to hold the dress so I could show my moh, who couldn't be there will me on Saturday. I had two extremely helpful sales associates and it was very low pressure. My moh even brought her rambunctious toddler to the salon and I thought we might get some dirty looks but no one even batted an eye, they were very pleasant. I'll update this once I decide if I'm going to order the dress from them.

I just booked Kerim for my wedding after reading all the great reviews and so far he's been great. I met with him twice because I was unsure of my colors and the direction I wanted to go the first time. He was very patient and gave me some great ideas and when I went back a second time with a more detailed plan of what I wanted, he seemed just as excited as I was. He was able to work within my budget (which was my biggest worry), and his prices were lower than other florists I met with.

I just booked Tom Chandler to DJ my wedding reception next August. His prices seem reasonable and he was very nice. He's willing to play (or not play) anything you want and has offered to check out my reception site for no extra charge. He does not charge by the hour, but by the event. He isn't a typical "MC," cracking jokes, etc. but he will announce whatever you want him to announce, which is the kind of DJ we were looking for. I will make an update after the wedding.
