I ordered my wedding shoes from DSW.com and was very pleased. I was able to get a low heel in a pretty style at a great price. I couldn't be happier!

Global Rose
 
( 4.4 / 5.0 )
I ordered 100 red roses to use between tiers of a friend's wedding cake that I was making. It made me a bit nervous that I did not get a tracking number until the morning they were being delivered, but they were delivered with no problems. They were packed tightly and were in good shape. I trimmed the ends and put them in water for a few hours, then removed the rest of the packaging and cut the stems back to the length I needed and removed any outer bruised petals. I placed them in mason jars with the water/plant food mixture until the next day when I arranged them for the cake.

All of the roses were beautiful and I used every single one. Not one rose was damaged. I would definitely use this vendor again.

I bought my strapless bra at Lane Bryant. As a plus size woman, it can be hard to find bras that fit my needs. Lane Bryant carries good, supportive bras at reasonable prices for plus size women.

RE: LORI ANN PHOTOGRAPHY - LORI ANN QUARLES
WARNING: This photographer backed out 2 1/2 months before my wedding (despite having a contract signed and deposit paid for months) due to "personal scheduling conflict". Her work is pretty good and her prices are great, but it is not worth the stress of the risk of having to scramble to find a new photographer on short notice! She did not even offer any suggestions of other photographers who might be able to cover my wedding once she backed out. Very unprofessional.

edited to add: Her "personal scheduling conflict" turned out to be a family vacation which she had been planning for months without giving me the courtesy of letting me know so I could start looking for someone else. Very unprofessional.

I apologized profusely to Laura for having to cancel her wedding date.

She had signed her contract in Jan for her June wedding. I had NOT been planning a vacation at that time whatsoever. Later we decided to celebrate our son graduating high school with a little vacation. We were planning it around her wedding date but upon booking realized there was only a small window open to book and unfortunately it fell on her date. Rather than dissappoint my son I made the difficult decision to cancel with Laura. It was very difficult but as I explained to Laura, who is also a mother, my family is very important to me. As soon as I knew our vacation plans had changed I let her know ASAP! That was 2 1/2 months after her booking the date.

SPECIAL NOTE: Laura had booked an 8 hour wedding, CD with printing rights of all images, Engagement session with CD and much more for $500!!! I am a Nashville based photographer that was going to travel to Kentucky- an hour and a half+ drive to shoot this wedding at NO EXTRA charge!
She got a full refund of her deposit and her engagement session and CD which we had already done for FREE. I could not reccommend any photographers because I don't know of any that travel to Kentucky or are located in Kentucky.

I have been doing wedding for 2 years and have never had to miss or cancel a wedding prior to this. Seeing how upset she was/is I can assure any future bride that this will never happen again. I love happy brides and as you can see from my MANY rave reviews I make them VERY VERY happy.

HAPPY ENDING!! Laura found a wonderful photographer who captured her special day in a beautiful way!! Things happen for a reason and I believe although this may have caused her some initial stress she got amazing support from all of the fellow Wedding Wire users and got a wonderful photographer to boot!

Best of wishes to you Laura!

We were MaryBeth's first wedding, and she was so great to work with! I highly recommend her. She was very responsive to any questions I had, and she went above and beyond to make everything perfect and make me feel at ease. She also had a really fast turnaround time with having the pictures ready. I've received tons of compliments on our wedding photography, and I've happily recommended her to everyone who has asked. I'm looking forward to having my Trash-the-Dress session with her, too!

Sarah did a great job putting together a set of monograms to match my theme. She was very flexible and easy to work with, and she was quick to respond. I'd be happy to use her again for projects in the future. (Click on my name or picture to see the monograms in my bio.)
