I absolutely loved my dress and I loved the cost of it even more. I found it during a sale and ended up getting it for 50% off which was definitely a total steal! The overall service at David's Brial is not stand-out awesome, it's okay. In my observation, the service was only okay because I felt like they were too overwhelmed trying to do too many things for too many people at the same time. In my opinion I think their alterations should be put in a store all of their own. It was a MAD house in there everytime I was there between the people shopping for dresses and the people there for alterations. Also, if you have minor alterations for your dress, or your bridesmaids dresses, I would highly recommend going to a local seamstress. David's Bridal is definitely swamped with orders which makes the personal attention to your own alterations not so good. But, then again I didn't decide to go to Davids Bridal for their service. I selected them becuase their prices are reasonable and they have a lot of really nice dresses. I loved my dress and I loved my bridesmaids dresses and I loved that it didn't cost everyone a fortune. Overall, I am satisfied with my experience with this store.

The DJs/MC/Singers we hired from Elite Entertainment were outstanding! I was so impressed with our MC’s (Jay Thomson) effortless ability to get all our guests really involved in the whole evening and excited to get up and dance. He has such a humorous, fun and animated personality which really made for a very fun and entertaining night. He was constantly interacting with the guests and keeping them involved so there was never a dull moment. I was shocked that even before the appetizers were served at dinner at least half of our 150 guests were up partying on the dance floor. He did an amazing job at keeping up the energy level all night. One of the other reasons I selected him as our DJ/MC was his amazing ability to sing! I thought it would be such a nice touch to have him sing the song DH and selected for our first dance, Me and You by Kenney Chesney. Jay totally hit is out of the park and really made it a very memorable dance. The other DJ/singer we hired was Sarina Coletti. She has such an amazing voice and I loved that throughout the night she would pick various songs to sing. It was a nice combination of having a DJ playing music and live entertainment. I had her sing the song I selected to dance to with my father, Because You Loved Me by Celion Dion and she did such an amazing job! I think Jay and Sarina both did a fantastic job and I loved the way they worked together. Everything was spectacular and I the guests had so much fun. I am still hearing from people how much fun they had at the wedding and how much they loved the entertainment. If I ever have to hire a DJ in the future for any reason, I will without a doubt call up Jay at Elite Entertainment!

The Palace helped me create a wedding that was beyond anything I dreamed of. It truly was a fairy tale wedding and still can't believe it was actually my wedding!

From the moment I decided to have my wedding at The Palace, I knew I had made the right decision. From the beginning I had a wedding coordinator that was extremely helpful and attentive to all my questions and concerns. She was very good at explaining the various steps of the process and let me know exactly what I needed to have done for each step. She was very knowledgeable and professional and never left me in the dark wondering because she was always there if I needed to get a hold of her. Her dedication to making sure any and all of my questions were answered right away helped reduce my stress and anxiety immensely. Her helpfulness and displayed expertise about coordinating my wedding at The Palace definitely made my wedding planning process an enjoyable experience.

On our wedding day, the staff was friendly, very attentive, and displayed the utmost professionalism throughout the entire day. I knew when I arrived on Saturday morning that I did not have to worry about a thing because of the level of service and expertise that was provided by the staff. The Palace provided an absolutely gorgeous bridal suite for me, my mom, my mother-in-law, and all the bridesmaids to get ready in; it was a well thought out bridal suite because it had more than enough to space to accommodate all of us women and all of our bags, clothes, shoes and makeup. Not to mention the spread of food and drinks that the provided to ensure no one became victim to starvation or thirst at any point in the day. I was also assigned a personal attendant whose job was to follow me and make sure my every need was met. She definitely made my day run a lot smoother by taking care of any worry or concern I had, making sure I was able to enjoy some of the delicious appetizers, and just being there whenever I needed help with my dress, bouquet, or simply a glass of water. Our Maître D' was also fabulous. It was such a relief knowing there was someone there to help keep my husband and I on track, as well as not letting us miss seeing any of details. Everything from the terrace where the ceremony was held, to the grand foyer where we had cocktail hour, as well as the ballroom where we had our reception was held was topnotch. The elegance and grander of the grounds justifies why the place is called The Palace, because I truly felt like a princess in a fairy tale. If I could do it all over again, I would not change a thing about The Palace. The warm staff, the delectable food, the delicious beverages and the extravagant atmosphere all combine and make this place the most remarkable place for a wedding.
