Antoinette's Alterations
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Antoinette does magnificent work, she has so much business because she is a wonder. The store looks like a hurricane goes through it once a week. I dont know how she keeps track and gets all of it done. My MOH, mom and myself all used her. Each dress came out perfect!!!! She is not cheap, and can drive you a bit nuts with her dont worry attitude, but her work is great!

My FAVORITE vendor!!!! I love David and Amy (his assistant and fiance) They were not only so professional, but just the nicest people. We loved him from the first moment we met him and didnt look any further after meeting him. His prices were by far the best and his work unique. We love the style of his photography. I am already giving David 5 stars because he already (within a week) sent me samples! I LOVE them!!!! His prices have gone up since we booked him, but believe me he is still a bit cheaper and sooooo worth every penny.

Pearl's Place
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I was a little concerned about ordering the dresses online. I did a lot of research and pricing before I ordered. Pearls Place beat all other places I contacted, even the one that says it will beat by 5%. They wouldnt beat Pearls prices. The bridesmaid dresses were 175-190 in the stores they paid 90. My dress was 800 in most stores and I paid 500. Quite the money saver! I ordered the dresses Jan. 2nd and had the girls dresses by the end of Feb. They were in perfect condition, and exactly what I ordered. My dress came in, in May a month earlier then I was told. Again, it was perfect. I definitely recommend Pearls Place to all of you looking to save money!

I did the flowers myself for my centerpieces myself. I did research and asked around. After I placed and order with another online flower place I started to hear not so good things about them. So, I started over and decided on recommendations from other brides to go with Bigrose. I ordered 200 purple roses from them to be delivered on the Wed. before the wedding. I wanted them to be fully opened by the time we used them. The roses arrived on time with no problems regarding delivery. When I opened the first, 2nd and 3rd boxes I was so amazed at the quality and beauty of the roses. They were so large, and such a beautiful color, I was so happy!!!! I could honestly say that I have never seen such beautiful purple roses before. At that point I was sooo sooo happy I had been so worried about the roses. Then I opened the 4th box and I wanted to cry L The roses in the 4th box were brown tipped, smaller, and I knew I was in trouble. The enclosed form said to cut and soak for 2 hours before calling them with problems. I did that but found they wouldnt be open until the next morning. The first man I spoke with was very nasty and asked me well what do you want me to do? I told him to have someone with some customer service skills to call me back. They called back while I was at work and spoke to Stefan who explained the problem. They did credit us for the 50 roses, but that wasnt going to solve the crisis I had with flowers. I sent Stefan all over that day looking for nice purple roses.nothing! So, the day before my wedding I had to drive all over looking for white, or ivory roses to throw into the purple mix. I did find beautiful roses, but now had to go back and redo all the bunches I had made already to include white roses. In the end the centerpieces and roses looked absolutely gorgeous, but for the 2 days before my wedding were spent stressed and searching for roses while I had more important things to be doing. This was my only problem with the wedding that really got to me. I kept asking myself those 2 days what the hell was I thinking? why did I decide to do my own? I would definitely not recommend doing your own to anyone! I didnt really end up saving any money.

I see SO many horror stories in reviews and posts about problems with Tuxes, we had none. We only needed 2 because Stefan owns his own, and so did the bestman. I used them because we use them for the high school I work at for a lot of things and they are a small family owned business. When we went to pick them up one of my sons pants were too bigway too big. No problem, they went in the back and came up with a pair that fit him perfectly. No problems at all.

Rosie Posies
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I was so amazingly happy with my flowers they were EXACTLY what I wanted only better! I knew from the moment I sat down with Felicia she got it. My arbor was perfect, the colors perfect, and pieces I had made for the ceremony were beautiful and she couldnt have been any more dead on as what I was going for. Her prices were so reasonable and she was so easy to work with. The reason for the 4 stars was that the ushers boutonnieres were dead by the middle of the reception. I thought they were a little cheaply made and the flowers could have been better for those.

Jenny Orsini Events
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I knew Jenny was the girl from me the moment I met her. Our personalities were great together. With about 3 months left to go before the wedding I started to panic about getting everything done the morning of the wedding. We had an 11:30 ceremony and there was just too much to get done that early in the morning for me to do it all. Now I am the type of person who wants to be in COMPLETE control because I think Im the only one who can get what needs to be done, done! So, it was hard for me to let go and let someone else step in, boy am I glad I did! I knew Jenny would get things done and she did! It was so wonderful not having to worry about 1000 little things. I gave Jenny a list of what I wanted and she made it happen! It was one of the best decisions I made. If there is any doubt ladies go for it. You wont be disappointed at all. We all have enough stress with the wedding let Jenny deal with it for you.
