AC Moore
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I love AC Moore and I am even happier with all of the items purchased for our wedding. We originally bought a sand ceremony kit elsewhere, but upon opening it, I was not pleased, so I went to AC Moore and purchased their kit with a 50% off coupon and I am so tickled pink about this purchase. It was PERFECT!! I have it displayed on a shelf with some other wedding items purchased. I purchased our table number frames from them, along with a bunch of other items and the staff at the location where I shop were so helpful and friendly.

Claus was so great to work with. He suggested a flower I had never heard of, the chocolate cosmo and to my surprise and joy, the flower not only rocked it with the white roses, it also smelled like chocolate. My bridal party wanted to hold my bouquet all the time and each time I got a compliment on the bouquets, I had the biggest smile on my face.

I will be definitely using this florist again for any of my future floral needs.

I am so over the top happy with Cathy and her assistant when it came to the pics. I had not met her until the afternoon of our wedding, as DH was in charge of taking care of that. I have to say that I was a little stressed out about this, but any uncertainty, fear, doubt, etc was IMMEDIATELY squashed when I met her. She made me so at ease that we ended up taking a TON of pics that I would have never thought I would take, AND the best part...I'm going to be setting up a shoot for b-pics.

I will also be definitely using her for any family portraits that DH and I want to get for the holidays.

Davids Bridal
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had the most enjoyable experience dress shopping. The ladies at the Route 18 store in New Brunswick, NJ were all awesome. They had me in both tears because they all were sharing in the excitement of my wedding and they were so happy to help me with whatever questions that I had.

We also ordered our invitations, sand ceremony kit from them, as well as our bridesmaid dresses and a few other items such as a bride sweatsuit outfit, leaf magnets for our favors that we forgot at the wedding, our favors were also bought from them, as well as bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts. My overall experience with them is one that I will not forget and I am even contemplating whether I would like to apply for a job with them.

I cannot say enough about DTM and our DJ for the wedding, DJ Tony Tee. I hardly sat down during the entire reception and I actually had to be "removed" from the dance floor for dinner and pictures. Tony was right on the money for everything that happened regarding cues from us, the timing of everything was PERFECT. He took care of guest requests and even played a song over that I could not dance for because I had to have pictures taken. I was told by my guests that they never saw a bride dance as much as I did and it was all because of Tony.

I ordered several items from Etsy and each item was PERFECT!!! I cannot say enough about Etsy. This is a wonderful tool not only for brides, but for everyone in general.

Kathy's Bridal
 
( 3.8 / 5.0 )
I wanted a specific pair of shoes and could only find them online or at Kathy's Bridals. While I was happy that I could get the shoes locally, the quality of the dye job was not exactly perfect, although noone else could tell except for me and my matron of honor. The shoe, itself, was great and very comfortable. My schedule is extremely busy and I did have a little bit of an issue with the customer service and trying to schedule to get in to pick up my shoes. Overall, though, I was happy with my shoes.

KAY Jewelers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I am so happy with our wedding jewelry that I will not be purchasing jewelry from any other place. I am need of some earrings and I will definitely be going back to Kay, as well as getting my husband a watch as he has wanted a Movado watch ever since I have met him. The staff at two of the stores we have gone to are most professional and any time I have needed to call them, they are always helpful.

I was very pleased with our magnet STD's and was really looking forward to ordering my invitations and other stationary from here, but unfortunately the cost was a little too high for our budget. I would definitely recommend them though. The customer service that we had from them, even when we had a few issues come up, was great. They answered us right away.

Mary Kay
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I used some Mary Kay products for my wedding day makeup and I was extremely pleased with not only the quality of the makeup, which I have used in the past, but the way that the make up stays on and how it can blend with other products is something that I am very pleased with, especially since I do like a variety of makeup brands. I specifically used the blush as well as some of the eye care products and I believe the makeup stood up to a lot of crying, sweating and eating. I only had to reapply my lipstick twice throughout the entire day and I am very happy with the way that it turned out.

Men's Wearhouse and Tux
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We were very pleased with Men's Wearhouse, especially with a gentleman whose name is Christopher. He was such a pleasure to work with and THANK GOODNESS he was the one working the day that my husband and I went for him to get measured, because if he was not there that night, the colors of the vests and ties would have been completely wrong. I had told the first person that we saw there a few months prior that we were having truffle colored dresses for my matron of honor and bridesmaid, as well as the trim on my gown. This gentleman ended up putting the guys in the wrong color, Rio Chocolate, which turns out to be THE WRONG color to be paired up with truffle, but Christopher SAVED THE DAY AND MY A$$ for that matter when he was asking questions and determined that the color originally picked out was not correct. He redid all of the paperwork and from that moment on, he was THE MAN!!!

If I ever have any friends, family etc that need tuxes, a suit, et cetera, I will personally bring them to Christopher so he can take care of them as he did such a wonderfully amazing job for our wedding!!!

I got this website through a few friends who recently got married and when I checked out the website and saw some of the things that they offer, but then saw that you had to pay to use their services, I really did not want to have to pay to use this service when I have also found that there are many free websites that give you the same service. If you do not mind doing some research, I would recommend that you check out both options. My friend, however, swears by it and if I was not so computer savvy, I would have gone through them.

Oriental Trading Company
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We ordered organza bags for one of our guest favors as well as coasters for our bar. The quality of the products were good, not awesome, but for the price we could not beat what we got. We were so happy with the customer service regarding our orders with them. We ordered a memorial vase also and there was a problem with the sticker on the vase and they sent us a return label/invoice at no charge and promptly sent out a replacement vase even before they received the defective one. I will continue ordering from them in the future.

Partylite
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I have always LOVED these candles and other products. For our wedding, I wanted to have a scent for the fall season and Partylite had the perfect fragrances for us to choose from. We ended up choosing the Mulberry fragrance for our votive holders and they were a total hit with our guests, so much so that a few of them asked me where I got the candles from.

The Buono Bakery
 
( 4.6 / 5.0 )
I never had any direct contact with them, as our wedding cake came in the package that we got from our venue; however, I did want a certain cake and I was never told that the cost was going to be so much more to have fondant, as I am still new to the fondant cakes. However, I did give them a little creative control to make something similar and they did, which turned out to be almost what I wanted. I couldn't have the exact one as you can't make leaves out of buttercream.

HOWEVER, there was an incident after the reception where a guest of ours ended up smashing the cake and destroying it after helping us carry boxes into our home and DH called the bakery and they were too happy to make us another one either at no charge (which I am hoping happens) or for a very nominal fee and the guest will pay for it. The only down side about this is that we will have to go and pick it up at our venue, which, in the grand scheme of things, is not that big of a deal.

For the actual flavor of the cake, we had a cannoli filling and OMG, it was one of the best cakes I have ever tasted. All in all, I am very pleased with this bakery and if they were not so far away from our home, we would be ordering from them in the future.
