Leber Jewelers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My fiance bought my engagement ring from Leber Jeweler, and we plan to buy our wedding rings from the same place. It was very important to me to have rings made in a socially responsible way. All of the jewelry at Leber is made from recycled metal and the gems are all fair trade and conflict-free. Also, my fiance accidentally got my ring size wrong (he was off by over a size and a half!) and they were very helpful in resizing the ring. I would recommend Leber to anyone looking for beautiful and socially conscious jewelry.

Too cute! You can choose different flavors and personalize the message inside. Tip: stick with pretty traditional flavors. We tried the cappuccino and nobody liked it. Nothing wrong with "original"!

Dance Center Chicago
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I can dance.. a little. I wanted to be able to do more than that on my wedding day. The instructors were very friendly, and they made the classes fun. I learned a lot, although I still have two left feet!

The Complete Wedding Expo
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
Maybe I am just not the bridal show type, but I found this whole experience to be unpleasant and overwhelming. Too many vendors trying to attract too many people.

Greenerprinter
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I found Greener Printer through a search for environmentally conscious invitations. They do their printing with soy ink and offer recycled paper options, and also offset their shipping footprint, which I think is very cool. The only problem I had at first was that the website seemed slow, but it could have been my connection. Not sure..

Davids Bridal
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I think that David's Bridal has some beautiful dresses, so I was excited to shop here for my bridesmaids' dresses. But I left without buying anything. The staff was not very helpful or friendly, and I found the prices to be more than I thought was reasonable.
