MAGNIFICENT CAKE! It was huge and I still have some leftover! Cake was excellent and Laney was very communicative and made my experience wonderful. For the price of the cake (not including small delivery charges) it was definitely worth it. I told her a 15-person cake, and I got a 30-person cake! Very wonderful, intricate details, solid colors and boy was it delicious. Located in Charleston, SC but they were still excellent.

Long story short, I bought a dress online and turned it was too tight in the wrong places and too big in others! Went to Anytime Alterations in Silver Spring, MD (off Georgia Avenue) and contacted the owner and seamstress, Maria Luz. She was excellent, called me back on off-hours and talked to me about my dress. Brought it in and she practically remade my dress for $500 - and did this 2 weeks before the wedding! Little more pricey for the RUSH job, but she altered, did the bustle, put cups in the top, redid the zipper, let out some seams a little bit to make it breathe, and it turned out excellent.

Whispers on Wentworth
Whispers on Wentworth is located in Charleston, SC but they did an excellent job with my huge thick Asian-style hair!! Hair stylist came into the salon on a Sunday when they are not usually open and she did my hair in a beautiful, curly updo. I didn't want my makeup done after all and she was OK with that, not all transaction-based. Kind and courteous, and she updated my messed-up french pedicure while my curls were setting! Excellent service especially after I had lost my cell phone that morning and was really grumpy.

Palmer Home Bed and Breakfast
Excellent site in Charleston, SC - this is one of the historic homes that is HUGE and along the famous Battery in Charleston. Functions daily as a bed and breakfast, with wine/cheese in the afternoon and an excellent southern breakfast. Beautiful arena with an outside pool and old-fashioned architecture, perfect for a wedding. Can hold up to 50-100 guests for reception and place inside that is just as beautiful for the ceremony if it rains. Kristin, the contact there is excellent by email and phone and will help you with your vendors and needs. Highly recommended!
