Silver Lining
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Silver Lining is a great source for wedding, bridesmaid and mother of the bride dresses for plus-sizes. My maid of honor purchased her bridesmaid dress off-the-rack at this store and the dress was in perfect condition! The store takes special orders and will help you find your correct size through their vendors size charts. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Ask for Sue.

Bride Beautiful is a wonderful boutique of wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses! The staff is helpful and patient, and was never pushy. The store does get quite busy on Saturdays, so it is best to make an appointment so you can have ample amount of time to try on dresses. The store features a wide range of wedding day accessories, from veils and headpieces, to shoes, jewelry, and bridal party necessities. There is also a great selection of bridesmaid dresses although your bridesmaids have to try on in a separate section of the store . This is actually nice, as it keeps dressing rooms open for brides, which means no waiting! Bride Beautiful provides alterations and on-site fittings and will prepare your dress for pick-up the week of the big day.

Invites All About Paper
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This is an excellent source for wedding invitations, and all essential paper goods from save-the-dates, to shower invites and custom printing needs. Several tables line one side of the store with tons of space to spread out and look through invitation books and examples. The staff is helpful and very knowledgeable on correct wording and wedding invitation etiquette. During my search, I was able to take home a sample of one of the invitations, and one of the staff event photo-copied an invitation for me so I could compare to my other options. The store orders from all the major invitation vendors such as William Arthur, Crane, Checkerboard, Carlson Craft, etc. Also a great source for custom-printed favors, welcome bags and napkins.

Brown & Co
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We were referred to Brown & Co. by a family friend who had done business with the jeweler for several years. The store may seem a bit fancy upon arrival, but the sales staff was very down to earth and helpful, and was never pushy. The selection is very nice, but may not seem as extensive as some of its competitors. The price is well-rounded from low to high and payment plans are available through their store credit card. Brown & Co. was very patient with us as we made several trips back to the store before deciding on my wedding band. We were notified as soon as the band had come in, and when we picked it up, they cleaned my engagement ring while we waited. An on-site appraiser rounds out the top-notch service we received at this jeweler, making us lifetime customers.

Toni Toro: Makeup Artisit
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I originally experienced Trish McEvoy makeup and artistry services as a bridesmaid in another wedding. I liked my makeup so much on that day, I knew I had to have it for my own special day. The Trish McEvoy makeup artists are available to travel to your wedding location providing they have an open schedule. There is a fee associated with this service, but it was well worth it. I had a trial run with my makeup artist at the store a few weeks before the wedding, and she recorded all of the colors and foundation options we decided on during that time. This made the planning go very smoothly, and there were no surprises on the actual day. The makeup artist I had did my makeup before I got dressed, and then followed me down to my pre-wedding pictures for touch ups during the photo shoot. Excellent service!

Van Michael Salon
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I am always in good hands when stepping into any Van Michael Salon, which is why I trusted them for my wedding day hair. I had a trial run on my hair with my hairdresser a few weeks before my wedding day. We took pictures at every step, and discussed what we liked and didnt like. This was great to have on the day of for my hairdresser to reference. Everyone at the Sandy Springs location is fabulous and really made me feel special on my big day. My entire bridal party had their hair done here and we were all very happy. P.S. Feel free to bring a bottle of champagne into the salon to have a nice treat while you relax on your special day!

Awesome Blossoms Weddings By Monique
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
What a pleasure it was working with Monique Escudie! Her creative flair and classy taste made my choice in flower vendors a no-brainer. Make an appointment to visit her beautiful office space which showcases several books and examples of her work. Monique was very patient and honest when we were designing our bouquets and wedding flower ensemble. Her service and attention to detail are outstanding and her flower designs are stunning. Feel free to be honest with your budget big or small and feel confident knowing that she will work for you and your best interest throughout the entire process!

Le Meridien Atlanta Perimeter
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The hotel is romantic and flirty which is everything you want on your wedding night. We booked a suite which had all the extras, including living room space with couch, spacious hallway and mini-kitchen and King bed with plush bedding and linens. A wedding night arrangement with rose petals was ordered, but never delivered. Champagne and strawberries made a nice touch upon entrance to our room.

AMT-American Express Travel
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Our experience with American Express Travel was an excellent, and made our honeymoon planning a breeze. We received help from an experienced travel agent who prepared us from tickets to hotel reservations and trip insurance options. Knowing we had 24-hour access to American Express Travel helpline while we were out of the country gave us peace of mind so we could enjoy our vacation!

Intercontinental Buckhead
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Intercontinental Hotel was a perfect venue for my bachelorette party pre-and post-festivities. Rooms were plush and elegant and very girly which added a nice touch to drinks and games before hitting the town. Comfortable beds were an added bonus upon returning from a long night out!

I had a lovely bridal shower at the Olde Towne Athletic Club which hosted several guests and provided a nice selection of food. The space was pretty and quiet and staff was pleasant and hospitable. The venue has a joined room with a fire place which would make a great location for a winter shower.

After Five String Quartet
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This Quartet was an excellent choice for our outside ceremony. Initial meetings via phone were very insightful, and the company made the music selection process very easy. We received a sample CD by mail prior to choosing any of our music, and then we reviewed additional selections upon our first meeting face-to-face. The company is made up of a group of musicians who have other performances throughout the week/month. We were invited to their rehearsals prior to selecting them as a vendor to get a first-hand review of their talent. Once our music selection was decided, we received a CD of our wedding song selections, which made a nice keepsake. The company does not have an office, so be prepared to meet off-site at a private residence or coffee-shop.
