LCI Paper Company, Inc.
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I bought paper from LCI for my DIY save-the-dates because the selection was good and the prices were reasonable. They have some cute ideas for invitations and other projects too.

Neighborhood Church
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I went to a wedding here not too long ago and thought the location was beautiful. The minister assigned by the church was warm and funny. If you're interested in this location, make sure to book early, as it was all booked for the dates I considered when I was planning my wedding.

Bread Basket Cake Company
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
When I went to Bread Basket for a tasting, they brought out 4 huge slices of cake. I loved the fresh berries, but the cake itself was just okay to me (a little on the dry side). The woman who helped said that they only do fondant or a "chocolate wrap" on wedding cakes, so if you want buttercream (like me), it's not a good option.

We booked Fiddlestix on the spot after hearing them play because they were super sweet and sounded great. Their rates were quite reasonable and Margaret was extremely easy to work with. Margaret was on the ball and offered lots of good suggestions for songs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this group.

JCrew
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My bridesmaids are wearing dresses from JCrew's "weddings and parties" line and have had a good experience selecting their dresses online. JCrew has a "special occasions" hotline, where specialists answer all your questions about various fabrics, colors, sizes, etc. and can send you swatches of the different fabrics in your colors. My bridesmaids liked being able to order "normal" sizes (including petite and tall sizes) and have been able to receive and return their dresses easily when there have been any sizing or fit issues. A couple of them even say that they'll be able to wear their dresses again, after the wedding! (I'm hoping they're not just being nice...:) )

Stedman Artistry
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Meredith did my hair and makeup for my wedding recently. She was sweet, easy to work with, and gave me the natural look that I wanted. My hair looked great and stayed in place all night long, even though it was extremely windy outside. She and her assistants were all on time (several were half an hour early) and were efficient and professional. Meredith also left little touch up bags for my bridesmaids and me, which were helpful.

Discount Sedan and Limousine
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We had a towncar from Discount Sedan and Limousine transport us from our reception venue to our hotel after the wedding. The driver was on time and accommodated my husband's request for a bathroom stop along the ride home. The car was clean and comfortable, and the service was reasonably priced.

My Candy Paper!
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My invitations from My Candy Paper were beautiful and reasonably priced. I got several compliments on them. My only concern was that it took much longer than anticipated for me to get them; they were supposed to be completed in 5 weeks, but it actually took about 11 weeks. We received them the day we had planned to mail them. I wish I could have seen a proof of the RSVP card, as it was missing the line for people to write their names on, but most people just created their own line so it turned out okay. Because of the delay, our calligrapher didnt have enough time to address the envelopes, so I ended up addressing them myself. Maria was sweet though and did overnight mail free table numbers to me because of the delay. Id highly recommend Maria; just make sure you have plenty of time.

Rusty Frank
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We called Rusty a week before our wedding to schedule 2 last minute lessons. She was a great instructor, teaching us enough basic swing moves to get us through our dance. She gave us helpful tips and was very positive throughout the lessons, despite our many mistakes. We had a great time and our first dance turned out better than expected.

Pastries by Edie
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
We chose a layer of the dark and light chocolate cake, and two layers of te strawberry cake for our wedding cake. The cake itself was light, moist, and absolutely delicious. We got lots of compliments on it. My only complaint was that it didn't look the way it should have looked. I had a relatively simple design; dark brown bands around an ivory cake, with some swirl designs on the brown bands. The bands ended up being a reddish orange color and were glaringly crooked and uneven around each layer of cake. It looked really sloppy and it ended up being kind of embarrassing to stand next to it during the cake cutting.

Mama Ocllo
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We gave out alfajores (little Peruvian cookies) from Mama Ocllo as our favors. I had tried them at Bay Cities Deli before and loved them. They were delicious and inexpensive; several guests asked where we had gotten them. Rosa of Mama Ocllo was sweet and very easy to work with! She sent complimentary samples across the country to me so I could figure out the right size to get for my favor boxes, answered all of my questions relatively quickly, and even hand delivered the cookies to me at my parents house a couple days before the wedding.
