Bella Rosa
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
ino at Bella Rosa was great to work with when ordering my flowers. He called me to let me know what was going on with my order, and with Mother's Day so close, he got me most of my roses - all but 3 bunches (75 roses), but it was okay, we had ordered over 2,000 roses, so 75 isn't that noticeable. He also got me stock and hanging amaranthus. Their roses are the big ecuadorian ones. I highly recommend them for roses or even other flowers.

Eugene was so great to work with. He makes you feel so comfortable and he is so fun! I liked him from the first conversation I had with him over the phone while I was living in L.A. His assistant Susan was also a pleasure to work with! The pictures turned out great, and I got my proofs so quickly! The only thing I was a little disappointed at was that I had scattered crystals all over the guests' tables, and he didn't capture a picture of that =( But overall, he was great!

There was a big mix up with booking them. I had met with James in October. He sent me the contract via email, and we had mailed him the contract and deposit. We also sent him two more checks in the mail. Right before our final payment, I had emailed him to ask him what time he would be at the hotel...well, he called me and told me that we weren't booked. I had told him about the payments, etc. and he checked his records again. In the end, he told me he would still do my wedding, but it wouldn't be him, it would be two other guys. In the end, I just stuck with them because it really wasn't his fault. The checks were never cashed, so we just figured it was lost in the mail. But overall, the guys were great. I still haven't received my video yet, so I cannot rate them on the final product yet.

Casablanca Bridal & Formals
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Gladys at Casablanca was so great! I had ordered a dress that I saw online for the girls. I also got my flowergirls' dresses there. The dresses came in on time, and they were always nice there! She also held my wedding dress when it got shipped from California and pressed and steamed it at a discount since I got all of my bridal party dresses from her. The alterations were very inexpensive, and they were done beautifully. All of the dresses fit the girls just right.

She wasn't my first choice, but Dorys Foltin and Christine Gardner were already booked. But Beverly did a great job on my bridesmaids, and worked very quickly. She did an awesome job on my flowergirls, they were so cute!!! On my mom, however, she made her makeup extra heavy and Jeannette had to brush out my mom's hair because Beverly had made it too puffy.

Su-V Expressions
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
ue was so great to work with. She's really down to earth, and her prices are reasonable. I LOVED my bouquet! She also did such an amazing job on my ceremony site and gazebo. I loved everything! She also offered to order my reception vases along with other brides so that we could share the freight cost. She really saved us a lot of money! Thanks to mrspresley for the gazebo idea!

Manoa Strings
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
They were great! They played for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. I didn't really have a chance to really listen to them, only when I was walking down the aisle, but they played through my cocktail hour also, and everyone thought they sounded great.

Mon Amie is such a great Salon! From the time of your first appointment with them, until the end, they are so nice! On your first appointment, they give you a questionnaire about yourself and your wedding. Then they bring you about 20 gowns to try on, and there is your saleswoman helping you to put on the dress. It isn't like any of the bridal salons in Hawaii. They are a little pricey, you could find the same dress that they have for a cheaper price if you looked, but their selection is VERY extensive. The alterations were awesome! Again, a little pricey, but it's worth it! There were no problems with my dress at all.

White Aisle
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Rebecca from the White Aisle was really great to deal with! They are prompt and really professional. I had ordered my invitations in January to expect them in March. Then the Kahala announced that they were going to change their name from the Mandarin to "The Kahala". I emailed Rebecca to ask if it wasn't too late to change the name of the hotel, and she emailed me within the hour to tell me that I caught her in time - they were going to start printing them that night! She sent me new proofs for me to okay. I got my invitations 2 days later!

Jeannette Clark
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Jeannette was so great to deal with! She is hard to get a hold of, but I didn't have that much of a hard time contacting her. She emailed me fairly quickly. She came to my mom's house for a trial the night of my rehearsal dinner, and that was great. On the day of my wedding, she did myself and my sister (MOH). My sister looked amazing! My curls stayed on the entire night, and my makeup was amazing (I'm very picky with makeup). She also had to fix my mom's hair and makeup after the other makeup artist left, although there wasn't much she could do with the makeup on already. When my mom asked her how much, she told her no charge...but my mom gave her money anyway. She's worth every penny...actually, she's inexpensive in comparison to the work that she does! She could very well charge much more than she does!

Kelly and her staff were so great that day! I didn' t have to worry about a thing! She took care of everything...if there were any problems on that day, I don't know about them. She made sure that my wedding was perfect and what I had envisioned, and it was executed very well! My bridal party also didn't have to worry about anything, she and her staff always told them when and where they should be. I couldn't have made the timeline that she had, and she finalized everything with my vendors, so the weeks coming up to my wedding, I didn't need to contact my vendors any more, she just took care of everything. She also decorated our suite at the end of the night. She is worth it! I would highly recommend her as a day-of coordinator.

It's About Time
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I didn't think that I could get my cranes in time due to the fact that I'm lazy and I haven't been diligent in folding my cranes. Well, March comes along, and I still had 200 cranes left...I contacted Christine, and she said that I still have time to turn them in, she'll give me until the end of the month! I was sooo relieved because I had a modified version of one of their designs, and it usually takes a little longer for them to do. I turned in my cranes at the end of March, and I got my finished product mid-end of April! Their work is also awesome! It came out perfectly.
