O.M.G. Seriously, it is the most moist and dense cake you will ever have. Promise. And I really think that moist and dense are the best kinds of cakes! We will honestly use them any chance we get, as we already have for multiple birthdays the last few years. Their price is great, the service is outstanding and the quality, well I already went over that. The design was exactly what I asked for! Definitely go in for a tasting- you won't regret it! My favorites are white with real strawberry filling, pineapple with pineapple filling and banana with cream cheese filling, but really you can't go wrong. Crap, now I want cake.

Silk Thumb Florist
4.5 stars. Oh Silk Thumb. There were some ups and downs, but in the end they really pulled through. The linens looked fabulous and the flowers looked and smelled great. The questionable part was the trial, but never fear, Kate the DOC was near and made a quick call to be sure we were all on the same page. Everyone was commenting on the flowers and I was really pleased with how they all turned out! All the flowers looked really fresh and nothing wilted for days. The staff there is really unbelievable and make you feel so welcome as soon as you step in the door. They are located in Wyandotte but will travel wherever. I highly recommend them!

We got the Bill Levkoff 803 in Dusty Rose. It was the perfect pale pink I was looking for! I didn't want baby pink or bubblegum pink. The Dusty Rose almost has a tan sheen to it. The taffeta material was perfect for a hot August day and for that, my girls were very thankful! Netbride was awesome. The dresses arrived a month early in perfect condition. The price can't be beat and their service is really great.

Crystal Gardens Banquet/Conference/Event Center
Ok, so I have mixed feelings on CG. For the price- they really are great. The food was phenomenal! Really! Our menu was roasted chicken, round tip of beef, vegetable lasagna, green beans, red skin potatoes, fettuccine alfredo, salad and rolls. Honestly, I could have eaten an entire platter of the lasagna! Everything tasted so good! The bar was great in my opinion. We added a few special things to it, but for the most part it was all them. My few little complaints (and I'm only saying these to give those using them in the future a heads up): we asked that they give our guests an option on cake. We had all the flavors in our menu- they just needed to bring around a variety tray- they did not. They turned the lights all the way on anytime someone spilled something- annoying but I understand they needed to be safe. The part that made me mad though- after all that, my brother in law still slipped and fell on the dance floor from a spilled drink- ugh. Other than that, it's just sort of like pulling teeth to get what you want. Be persistent if there is something you feel strongly about. Overall, they provided a great service at a good price and I would recommend them, just with some caution.

Honestly, this shop is not that great. I think they are overpriced and the service is lacking. They didn't steam my dress when I first picked it up and so I think because of that, the bottom hem had problems staying down- it kept flipping up. That only bugged me for about a total of 20 minutes and then I really didn't care anymore. The alterations were good and reasonable, although I asked to put cups in, it totally ruined the dress so we had to take them back out. But they still charged me for them. I don't think I should have had to pay for a service that didn't work with my dress. Overall, they get 3 stars, nothing horrible, but nothing spectacular either.

Biundo's Salon & Spa
Nini is my normal stylist that works at Biundo's Salon in Monroe. I have been going to her for almost 9 years. It was a no brainer that she would do my hair and she offered to come to the house. I had two trials that I wasnt 100% happy with, and so on the day of the wedding, I told her to blend the two. She did it and did it perfectly. I couldnt believe how great my hair looked, and I have a lot of it!!! She did 6 people's hair and everyone looked great! Not to mention her prices are unbelievable!

Bozzos Limousine Service
Ok, I had heard a lot of horror stories about limos, and when it came to our day-of transportation, I wasn't willing to risk anything. No, Bozzo is not the cheapest limo company around, but the service you receive is unbelievable! They were right on time, the limo was in perfect condition and even with all the road closures, the driver never had a problem! We first went to our reception site, Crystal Gardens, to see the room set-up and I think she got us there in record time (even using the back roads)! Then we were set to go to Greenfield Village to take pictures. It dawned on us that they might be closing at 5pm, and at the time it was 4:30pm. The driver said she would get us there with no problem! We called and found out they were actually open until 9pm, so we had plenty of time, but we sort of forgot to tell the driver. Again, record time! I loved her. For sure, they get my recommendation!

La' Perfetto Cappuccino
This was a HUGE hit. We had it at the rehearsal dinner and the beginning of the reception. They said the line was constantly there during cocktail hour. This was originally for something else (our offsite receiving line for those that we know), but when plans changed we needed to find a new use for it. I was actually really happy that I made an early decision and was "forced" to have the coffee cart. My only slight disappointment was that they only had strawberry smoothies. I was hoping for a bigger assortment- but the coffee drinks were excellent! Marianne was so nice, courteous and pleasant to work with. For a special added touch (especially for the coffee lovers) this was a great addition!

If you don't have a DOC yet and you want one, PLEASE contact Kate. She is worth her weight in gold and then some. I knew she was awesome when Carl told me we weren't paying her enough. She was way more than a DOC. She helped so much with follow up calls the last week and made sure everything was exactly the way I wanted it! She was everywhere we needed her to be, on time, courteous and people thought she was my friend. There is something to be said about a DOC with experience and it definitely showed with Kate. She gets my highest recommendation!
