DB in Phoenix, AZ helped us out with our bridesmaids dresses. It was so great to use them as I had bridesmaids in three different states. Their prices, service and choices are always great.

Michaels Arts & Crafts
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I don't even know how much money I spent at Michael's Arts & Crafts Store. I purchased all of my invitations there, which everyone loved. I also purchased cardstock and butterfly punch outs to create unique place cards. I came up with a new idea every time I walked in Michael's. Their prices are so reasonable and they are located everywhere across the nation. My DIY projects were so easy to complete with the help of the Michael's stores and their staff.

Karen is AMAZING!!!! She was absolutely wonderful to work with and her final product made my wedding day. I used a lot of hydrangeas, which unfortunately couldn't handle the heat on the big day, but they were beautiful. She provided the centerpieces which were unique to my theme and everyone LOVED them. She really helped me with the planning and any idea I had regarding the decorations. She took my ideas and brought it all to life. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Thank you Karen for making my wedding an even more beautful day than I could have ever imagined!

Carl and his trio were wonderful to work with and provide beautiful music for my ceremony. I loved walking down the aisle to the Phoenix String Quartet vs. recorded music. It made the moment even more special for my husband and me.

The Men's Warehouse
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We rented tuxedos from Men's Warehouse for our wedding day. Due to their locations and cost, they were a great since we had groomsmen in three different states. I would recommend that others use Men's Warehouse in the future.

The Pros - Disc Jockeys
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
I WILL NEVER EVER USE OR RECOMMEND THE PROS!!!
We used their services in the Arizona area to DJ our cocktail hour and reception. I originally worked with one coordinator who told me all DJ’s are to wear tuxedos, Steve The DJ, who I was assigned after my original choice was terminated from their service did not show up in a tuxedo. I was told that the DJ will play any music we select. After providing the DJ with a list of 4+ hours of music, I only heard maybe 3 songs. He even played a song from my "Do Not Play List". The coordinator changed on me a few weeks before the wedding and never returned any of my emails or phone calls. I had to literally chase down the DJ two days before my wedding to discuss the wedding details and then at the wedding we were completely caught off guard that we were to provide a speech to our guests. I understand this is normal, but this was not discussed with us and therefore we were not prepared and I felt stupid.

My dad had prepared a little video for me to play at the reception. The DJ was in charge of pressing play and stopping the video. He let the video play almost 4 times before he had to be asked to stop playing it. My husband was incredibly frustrated and literally pissed off on the music he was playing. None of it was from our selection we provided him and after I advised the DJ that I wanted everyone on the dance floor the whole time, but he kept playing music that no one danced to. He was “supposedly” taking requests from all of the guests, but then there would only be one or two people on the dance floor. Also, between each song, he would try to mix the music and it just sounded horrendous. He even messed up the anniversary dance!

Our guests had nothing but horrible things to say about him and even the event staff complained about him. He is now blacklisted from at our venue, The Scottsdale Resort & Conference Center. If that doesn’t tell you how bad he is I don’t know what else will.

Danielle and Amanda really helped me and my husband with every aspect of our wedding. They listened to every idea or concern we had and helped us through it all. Danielle became my best friend and I don't know what I would have done without her. We are still getting compliments about our wedding and how amazing everything was. Our guests were in awe of the banquet room where the reception was held.

We had roughly 80% of our guests coming in from out of town and the Scottsdale Resort & Conference Center was a great place to have both the ceremony and reception. Everyone loved that they didn't have to drive anywhere, and if they did everything was close by, and that they could hang out around the pool area all day before the big event.

The staff was amazing and Danielle and Amanda provide us with a day we will never ever forget. I will truly miss working with the two of them and would highly recommend that others have their weddings here.

Mari was wonderful. My sister and I used her services to alter my wedding dress and my sister's bridesmaid dress. We met with her one Saturday and our dresses were ready the next Saturday. She is located a little way's away from me, but it was worth it.

Love, Love, Love, Uptown Bridal!!!!!The experience of wedding dress shopping made me so nervous. Tanya worked with me and helped me find my perfect dress. My husband could not stop complimenting me on our wedding day and still tells me how absolutely beautiful I looked walking up the aisle to him. I couldn't thank Uptown Bridal more for making me a gorgeous bride on my special day. The boutique is absolutely wonderful and their staff and selection are amazing. I would highly recommend Uptown Bridal to anyone and everyone I know or talk to.

I used weddingdepot.com to purchase some additional present for my bridesmaids and family. I fell in love with their handkerchief selection. My theme was butterflies and they actually had a few butterfly handkerchiefs that I could choose from. They shipped quickly and their prices were very reasonable.
