We got the wedding bands at Days. They were very nice and helped us pick out beautiful bands without being pushy. We found the prices were not that out of control either. A man named Leo helped us with everything and I would go back to him again.

I can't say better things about our wedding photographer. I would highly recommend Becca Garone from Garone Photography. She was a huge part in making our wedding day so successful. She showed up right on time and had an assistant with her. She and her assistant worked awesome together. He helped in positioning people and fixing dresses, flowers and my vail. They always knew what type of shot they wanted. At the ceremony, I didn't even know they were there. One thing we didn't want was a photographer who was constantly in our faces, this wasn't her. Also, the formal pictures went super. We didn't want to be taking pictures for hours, we wanted to spend time with our family and friends and we wanted the same for our wedding party. Again, Becca and her assistant worked so well together. They weren't pushy at all. They made us feel very relaxed and special. On top of everything the pictures turned out EXCELLENT! Absolutely beautiful, I never expected to get so many compliments on them.

Modern Bride in Bedford, NH was a great place to look for dresses. There were so many dresses in the show room. It was hard not to find one you liked. The staff is friendly and helpful but not overbearing. I do wish the dressing rooms were larger as it was difficult to get the dresses on with one or two people in there helping. The nice thing about Modern Bride is that they will hold your dress for you until the week of your wedding. That way you don't have to worry about storing it somewhere. Overall, my experience there was good. I got all of my bridesmaids dresses at Modern Bride in Beford, NH. The best thing about this shop is the selection. There are hundreds of dresses to choose from. I had a specific color that I wanted so that limited the dresses that I could choose from. But if you go in without a color in mind you will definitly find a dress you like. The staff is not too pushy, however, I wish they were more helpful in helping to find dresses. It took a while finding all the dresses that came in the color I was looking for. Modern Bride does offer a free hem with all dresses. One issue that I did have was the allterations for the girls. They orded big sizes for 6 out of 7 of my girls. This meant they had to be taken in alot, which meant they had to spend more money. I know it's hard to get it right but 6 out of 7 girls with sizes to big seams like a lot. They do require half deposit when you purchase the dress and the other half when you pick it up. I would go back there again if I needed to.

We had Joey Dion of Main Event DJ's as our DJ. I have to say he made our wedding. He was absolutly outstanding and we are so glad we went with him. He is the most expensive DJ they have (he's the owner) but he is well worth it. We love to dance and we wanted our dance floor full the entire night, we got what we wanted. I hate when everyone is dancing and the DJ puts on a song and the floor clears, we never had that. Joey just kept playing great music all night. Of all the choices I made for the wedding, he was the best. I would highly recommend Joey Dion as a DJ.

The Flower Cart
I got my flowers from the Flower Cart in Bedford, NH. I would go back there any time for flowers. I met with them a few months before the wedding to go over what I wanted. They gave great suggestions all keeping with what I wanted. We wanted a hydrangea themed wedding and I needed them to help pull it off. The day before the wedding I went to look at all my flowers, they were beautiful. Exactly what I wanted. I was worried the hydrangeas would wilt in the heat, but they never did, even at the reception. I was very pleased with there level of professionalism.
