David's Bridal gets a bad rap and yes, I've contributed to this bashing in the past. It's defnitely not the best place for brides who want some attention. You'll wait an hour+ after your scheduled appointment time, share your consultant with two other brides and a girl celebrating her quinceneara and feel so completely unspecial. Needless to say, I did not get my wedding gown here. There is an upside though... it's a national retailer and can get gowns quickly so it's a good option for bridesmaids scattered across the country. TIP: Most dresses aren't available in extra length which is a problem for taller bridesmaids. BUT, you can order fabric by the yard! Most consultants don't know this, but it's a life saver.

Love the dollar aisle! Purchased cute white baseball caps with "Bridesmaid" and "Bride" written on them, flip-flops for the BMs, favor bags and toys for the kids room. They also have a bridal aisle with bubbles, favor accessories, etc. which can come in handy when you're short on time and can't wait for an order to come in. They also have cute accessories and dresses for flower girls.

These guys have been amazing. They're professional, extremely accommodating and super easy to work with. We recently had our e-pic session and though I was completely nervous at first, they made it fun and relaxing. They even put up with our silly antics! We can't wait to see the photos and are even more excited about having them shoot our wedding day.

I found Vanessa on Yelp. I didn't know what I wanted my makeup to look like so I gave her free reign. She gave me a smoky eye and pink-nude lip at our trial and it looked great. Then, on my wedding day, she made a few adjustments and it looked even more amazing! She used airbrush makeup, which felt a little weird, but lasted all night, and fake eyelashes which I'm now in love with. Vanessa is professional and great to talk to, always a major plus when someone is working on your makeup for an hour. I can't say enough great things about her!

Sales woman was a little grouchy but Cero, the baker, is amazing. They worked with our design ideas and delivered and set up the cake with no problems. When we walked into the reception, we were thrilled with the design: gum paste flowers and monogram. The cake was delicious too!
