Our reception at Cafe La Cave was elegant and beautiful, thanks to Randy. Randy is the best! I had some issues with one of the other staff members, that I wasn't too happy about. But-- It didn't detract from my day and everything else was flawless!

House of Brides

First off, my dress came in about October (for January date) and I never received notice-so in December I was rather mad that it hasnt come in yet so I called. They told me it was in since October and that I should have received a mailing which I never did. They thought they should not have called to let me know because they mailed something. After that fiasco, I only had 2 weeks for alterations which many were needed. When ordering the dress I was told that we needed the extra sizing (about $150) and when it came time for alterations my dress was at least 5 sizes too big (I even gained weight between the time it was ordered and the fitting)! It was about $375 for the extra alterations and the women doing the alterations were very uncooperative. They kept saying there was no time and we should just take it how it was. Needless to say, we had many arguments with them and my mom and I fought tooth and nail but got it the way we wanted.

We found the bridesmaid's gowns at JC Penney. It was super simple. We bought the gowns on the JCPenny sales rack and they were beautiful! We didn't have to mess with ordering or measurements- what we saw was what we got.

Pictures were just ok; she simply snapped pictures and didnt even edit red eye or other flaws for album. Took bad pictures and not enough of the pictures that she should have like the groom walking down the aisle is only one picture and it is crookedlooks like he is falling over. She was very unprofessional dressed in jeans with her stomach hanging out and was telling people she wanted a drink! Outrageously priced for poor quality pictures paid $25 for an 8x10 picture that was blurry!
