This dress shop was amazing. From the moment I stepped in I felt pampered and that I was the center of attention. I choose gowns to try on and the lady helping me choose some based on my likes and personality. The lady actually hit it right on the head and one of the dresses she choose for me was my perfect dress. I also had numerous alteratons on my dress and had to go to the shop many times I always had the same seemstress who got to know me well and was very friendly and was great to talk to. She did an amazing job on my dress. I went to atleast 10-15 bridal salons and this was the last one I stopped at and I wish it would have been the first. Everyone was amazing from start to finish.

Radisson Hotel Denver Southeast
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Tom Bartig was the man who helped my husband and I though every aspect of having our reception at the Radisson. He was with us from start to finish and was wonderful every time I had a to call him with tons and tons of questions. He was able to help us pick the best banquet room at the Radisson that suited all of our dining and dancing needs. He was able to help us get the best price on the room and our food. One awesome thing about the Radisson is the preview night held a few times a year. All of the brides, grooms and 2 of the guests get to come to a special night of food and wine sampling to help you choose what meals you could like to have at your wedding. Also, the Radisson gave us a free room to spend the night in on a special floor only eliete members guests were allowed to access. It made our day extra special.

Consumers Bakery

I brought in a cake picture from Matha Stewart Weddings Magazine and asked Bob the Baker if he could make it. He assured me he could and it would look great. It was 3 tiered sage fondant with smooth white piping and more square looking tiers than circle. Again he said he could do it and it would look great. The first time I saw the cake was when my husband and I went with the photographer to take our picture with it. As soon as I saw it I almost started crying. IT WAS THE UGLIEST THING I HAD EVER SEEN. I was so disapointed. The cake was neon green and the fondant had cracks all over it the piping looked like someone with a terribly shaky hand did it and the tiers where 3 circle... 3 large circles... our cake top was a full size circle cake :( my husband and i had to cut it in half to save in our freeze for our one year anniversary. I would not suggest going to this company!!!

Blue Nile
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Blue Nile was a great place to get our wedding bands. It was quick easy and exactlly what we wanted. They have very fast shipping and often if you search for them on yahoo or google search have codes for discounts on purchases above and beyond the great prices they alreay have listed. The only trouble was that I wear a size 9.5 band and when my engagment ring was purchased Blue Nile carried this size in stock. When it came time to buy the wedding bands it needed to be special ordered and took a week or two longer than my husbands wedding band to come in the mail.

Haentze Floral
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
For the wedding I was bound and determined to have pink and white callalillies in my boquete, in vases at the reception, in the bridemaids boquet and the boutineers. However, searching all of the florists in the area I didn't think that would happen as all of the florists were telling me the same thing. Calalillies are going to cost you 12-15 dollars each. I couldn't believe it or afford it. I was telling my mother and she said when you come home to visit humor me and check out Haentze Floral Co. I met with the most amazing lady who told me she could get me callalillies for 7-9 dollars each and that she could also get me imitation calas for the center pieces that looked real and would only be 3 dollars a piece. She also special ordered vases for the center pieces and said she would just sell them afterwards. Also, I decided I wanted a dozen calas in my boquet and 6 in my maid of honors... on the day of the wedding when I got the flowers my boquet had 15 and my maid of honors had 9. They lady decided they needed more and she didn't charge us extra and they looked amazing.
