I can't say enough good things about Jerry and Julie. I felt like we knew each other from our first meeting. The ceremony that Julie wrote was fantastic, it had so many personal touches all of our guests knew that we'd found the PERFECT officiant. I hope that my younger brother will get married in AZ just so he can also have such a wonderful officiant. Honestly, I would recommend this amazing duo to anyone! I really think that the kind words that Jerry said during our ceremony will stay with my husband and I forever. We couldn't have made a better choice in hiring them.

Total Bliss Salon
HORRIBLE>>>>Do not go to this salon. I paid for a bridal package and had a horrible "head" stylist I think her name was Victoria. SHe hardly spoke to me during my appointment. She walked up to me while I was waiting took my inspiration pictures from me and said "Yea, I can do this". She took me back to her chair and asked my mom to sit basically in the corner. The only times she spoke to me for the rest of the appointment was to say that I had too much hair and that I'd need to cut at least 5 inches off before my wedding. She also said that she hates doing up dos and can't believe that she was being asked to do this. After my experience, I found a different salon to work with--White Lotus Salon (who are amazing!) I wound up getting a refund for the services I didn't receive. With the gift card I decided I'd get my nails done. My nails ALSO turned out horrible. The woman who did my nails filed them off into a square shape when I specifically said I did not want square shaped nails. Then the white tips were no where near even. I absolutely refuse to step foot in this salon again, it was the worst part of my entire wedding planning year.

White Lotus Salon and Spa
Everyone at White Lotus worked so hard to make sure that my day was amazing. Nicole, Beth, and Alicia made me feel like a princess on my day. Beth was an amazing stylist and took my inspiration pictures to another level. My hair was amazingly beautiful and stayed perfect for my whole day. Alicia waxed my eyebrows and did my makeup just how I wanted it, she even did some make up for my bridesmaids. And Nicole, the manager, was there the whole day and did a great job keeping us on time. We basically had the salon to ourselves and were spoiled by everyone. We had terrific service and I plan on going back to White Lotus even though it's more than 30 miles away from where I live. They are amazing, kind, and excellent at what they do. If you are having your ceremony anywhere near gilbert use them!

Hobby Lobby - Franklin, TN
I go to Hobby Lobby almost every week to see what new things I need for my wedding! It is the perfect place for crafty people! My fiance and I decided that we wanted to make our own invitations to make them more special. We went to Hobby Lobby and found some really great stamps. We also bought cardstock, ink, and envelopes and went home right away to try out our craft. They turned out so wonderful. I really suggest that if you do any crafts for the wedding that you try to make your own cards. Your guests will really appreciate the thought behind them and you will be able to make great memories while doing it.

A Dream Wedding 4-Less
I was really depressed about buying a wedding dress after failing in three different shops. BUT when I walked in to A Dream Wedding for Less I was so amazed by all of the beautiful dresses and helpful service. Even though I walked in 45 minutes to closing, Sarai did a wonderful job helping me and not pushing me to leave. I ended up staying about an hour after they closed, but I found the perfect dress. Sarai helped me find a veil and jewelry as well. I was so thankful to have found THE dress especially with the way my morning had gone. I can't wait to go back and have my final alterations done and work with them again. UPDATE: So now that I own the dress, I am so upset with this bridal shop. When my dress showed up, the zipper was broken. I went in 8 weeks later and the zipper is still not fixed. I was supposed to have an alterations appointment and they couldn't do it since the zipper wasn't fixed. AHHHH! How can I be so in love with this shop and then turn around and hate them now?! This shop has amazing dresses. I suggest buying the dress here and taking it elsewhere for alterations since they clearly can't keep up with their customers.
