Black Tie Formal Wear - Schaumburg
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
We found a good selection and friendly employees at Black Tie Formalwear. However, we had a size mix-up for one of our orders. It was corrected, but we had to make an extra trip to the store to pick up the corrected item.

Mitchells did a wonderful job on our wedding flowers and had the most beautiful selection. The quality of the flowers and the service were excellent. We also had them make centerpieces for the bridal shower! I highly recommend--everything you could want in a professional for your wedding day.

Holiday Inn Willowbrook/Hinsdale
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We reserved our hotel block at the Holiday Inn in Willowbrook. We found it easy to arrange and the hotel provided maps and information cards to insert into our invitations. Following the reception, we had an after-party at the hotel bar. The guest rooms were recently updated. They also have an on-site restaurant where we ate breakfast the next day. Overall, we were happy with our choice!

Saint Alexander Catholic Parish
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My wedding reception was held at St. Alexander Catholic Parish. My husband and I are of different faiths (Catholic and Muslim) and the pastor offered to incorporate aspects from the Muslim faith into our ceremony. They had a great selection of live musicians and a separate meeting for brides and grooms-to-be to hear the music live and choose the songs for their ceremony.

Toby's Dining and Banquets
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My bridal shower was held at Toby's Dining & Banquets. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had some unknown vegetarians in our party, and the waitress was very accommodating and brought out vegetarian dishes upon request. The event was held in a cozy private room with a fireplace- great atmosphere.

Cog Hill Golf & Country Club
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Our wedding reception was held at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. It has a beautiful wood-beamed hall with a private bar room and private terrace. They only hold one event at a time so you have the place to yourselves! The food was excellent and were still getting compliments, one year later. Staff was friendly and easy to work with.

AJ Fotography
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My cousins had used Art (the A in AJ) for their weddings and he did a fantastic job. At AJ Fotography we found a low-pressure sales pitch and cozy studio setting in his home. The company was very reliable and professional. The only negative to working with this vendor was that the proofs were hard copies and not available for viewing online. We have family all over the world so this made it difficult to share our pictures with them.

Taint & Notch Salon
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Cindy, the owner of Taint & Notch Salon, did my hair. I went in for a trial up-do with my tiara and veil. The day of the wedding, my hair looked great and stayed in place all day. My mother and maid-of-honor also had their hair styled here and were happy with the services. The salon brings in a MAC make-up artist for special event makeup artistry-- so we all had that service done at Taint & Notch, as well. We were also satisfied with this! It was nice to get it done all in one place.

I cannot say enough great things about this Creative Cakes! Their cakes are DELICIOUS and my family continues to use them for birthday cakes as well. We had a lot of fun at the cake tasting and also got a free top tier cake on our 1-year anniversary (instead of freezing it and eating it later).

Davids Bridal
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
At David's Bridal (various Chicagoland locations) I found a good selection and reasonable prices. However, the stores were too busy at times and I did not receive very much personal attention during my shopping experience (reps were too busy running back and forth between brides). So, a recommendation depends on what you are looking for in your wedding gown shopping experience. I had no problems with alterations, everything went smoothly in that department.

An Elegant Touch Limousine Service, Inc.
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Our transportation service for the day of our wedding was An Elegant Touch Limousine Service, out of Lockport. They were friendly and on-time. We had reserved a 10-passenger towncar and the day before the wedding, they called me to say they had a 14-passenger Excursion available and it would be available to us at no extra charge sweet! It was a true party bus and we had a great time.
