Ordered many parts of our wedding through amazon, including our candy centerpieces and gifts for our wedding party. They are fast and reliable and their cost and quality is great!!

Our photo booth was a hit among all age groups of our guests! They provided a scrapbook, but we brought a paper cutter and paper and pens to match our tastes. They had props and were super friendly with all of our guests! My only complaint was that we provided a logo for the bottom of our photo strips, and it was pretty tiny in comparison to other booths that I saw. Overall though, I thought it was a great experience and our guests had a lot of fun! The booth was different from what we were originally told we were going to have, but it turned out to be better, so I won't complain! Just waiting for the DVD of our images, but our guests loved all of their photos!

I bought my wedding dress here and 4 bridesmaid dresses. While I loved the dresses, I was pretty disappointed with the quality of service in NYC and their inability to be flexible when we were having sizing issues. I kept hearing that the NYC location was the worst, so other locations are most likely better.

I don't think many people think of trying to plan their wedding using a dollar store! However, if you do, you can find some really great finds! Our favorite thing that we found here were $1 vases to use for our centerpieces. Even better- they delivered! So, we had a really wonderful experience with them and I'm sure you can find some other great stuff to use for decorating your wedding!

We went to the Oakbrook location for our rehearsal dinner and got the most complete package of salad, pasta, pizza and soda. They did a great job with the food! My only complaint was that they weren't flexible with providing options for the different foods. We had to go with their standard salad and pasta even though there were others on the menu for the same price. Oh well. our guests were happy and we had a great time! The best part was that when we were researching lots of restaurants in the area for rehearsal dinner, this was by far the cheapest for the quality of food.

Our MC and DJ for the night was great! He was a big hit and even brought in some of his own music and played it for our guests. The only issue we had was that he started our first dance music before our guests were in the room (but I think this issue was more due to the layout of our venue, but he didn't adapt as well, but again not totally his fault). We had a great time! Thank you!

We ordered our magnet save-the-dates from magnetstreet.com and we loved them! They were a big hit with our guests and we know that most of our guests had them on their fridges the whole time! I would have been happier if we could customize the magnets a little more, but we were thrilled with what we were able to do.

The catering was one of the most important aspects of our wedding. We went to many tastings and loved the food at many restaurants/catering companies, but My Chef really sold us on their presentation at their tasting. The food was wonderful and they offered us many discounts to help us make our decision. Our wedding at Wilder Mansion was phenomenal and My Chef staff did a wonderful job. The food was just as good as at the tasting and the portions were very generous. They were helpful and accommodating throughout the night, providing extra chairs for small children and even extra children's meals for the little ones. They also provided extra tea candles throughout the venue because we didn't have any of our own. They knew what we needed before we even asked. Our wedding day was amazing and Dominick and My Chef were to thank for this. Laurie is the one that you will do your communication with, and while she wasn't always super friendly or pleasant, she's not the boss, so you can get all your questions answered by Dominick if she is not able to help you.

They did a fantastic job altering my dress, and I loved it! It is a little pricey, but for the quality, you can be safe that they will do a great job with your dress. I got compliments on my dress all night at my wedding and it fit me like a glove!

My aunt actually knows the makers of the perfect cardbox, so she let me borrow hers for our wedding! It was perfect for our gifts! We got to pick 4 8"x11" photos to use in the sides of the box and it turned out gorgeously. We got mostly cards at our wedding instead of boxed gifts, so we needed a secure place for the cards. One of my cousins who was an usher was in charge of the key and made sure the box was secure throughout the night. It was a great idea and we were really glad we used it!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Wilder Mansion. Our wedding was a huge success with people telling me how beautiful the venue was and how unique and intimate it felt. Meagan was so helpful throughout the entire planning process and Heather was great on the day of the wedding. They were both so professional and friendly, and truly made our wedding so incredibly special. I wish every day were my wedding at Wilder Mansion!!!!

We got our wedding bands here. Very simple white gold bands, but we were very happy because they offered us lifetime sizing and plating so we never have to pay for that again!
