Miner's Den
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Miners Den is close to our house and had a nice selection at reasonable prices for diamond bands. My engagement setting is also from there. We thought the band my husband wanted (plain, shiny, white gold comfort fit band) was a little expensive there, so we found the same thing for much less at Maloofs. Both places are respectable and had great service- I would go back to either one.

After Hours Limousine
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I was VERY nervous about this vendor, especially since I had heard some so-so reviews on them from other brides and I had a hard time getting a hold of them for a few weeks. I think all limo companies are pretty suspicious, but they came through and everything went perfectly. We got a limo coach and it was clean and nice. The driver was great. No problems whatsoever and they were VERY cheap!

Me Dashuri Jewelry
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Deana made all of my wedding day jewelry. She does gorgeous work! She is such a sweetheart, great at communication, and very fast. I contacted her a few weeks before the wedding after I realized I hated the jewelry I had bought and she whipped up a crystal three strand bracelet, earrings, and two hair combs. They were perfect and exactly what I was looking for. She is very reasonable, too, pricewise!

Pasquale's Restaurant
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Pasquales is a nice place for an inexpensive shower or rehearsal dinner. They have two private banquet rooms and can accommodate 100 people. The rooms are a little dark, so the ambiance is a little different, but we thought it was nice and they were very easy to work with. The food was very good.

Chrissy O Designs
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Each of my bridemaids chose their own top and skirt from the Impressions separates line. We decided to order from a non-local vendor because their prices were outstanding. They are a brick and mortar store in New Jersey, but take orders from anywhere. Chrissy O was cheaper than netbride.com and their customer service really impressed me, so I decided to order from them. The girls saved about $100 per dress (they were about $110-$120 each) and they looked so pretty! Jessica at Chrissy O did a great job dealing with my insane order (9 girls ordering different tops and skirts in different fabrics- what was I thinking?!). I loved the way the different dresses looked and the color was prefect. Highly recommend both Chrissy O and Impression.

Macy's Bridal Salon
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I wore a Watters and Watters bridesmaid dress as my gown, and Macys was awesome- I wasn't sure if I would get the same level of service since my dress was only $278, and all of their bridal gowns are pretty pricey, but they treated me like a queen! Alice was my consultant, but they all seemed very nice. If you are looking for top notch service and a selection of beautiful designer gowns (or upscale bridesmaid dresses), I would highly recommend them. They frequently have designer trunk shows and offer discounts during those events. They are also open on Sundays, which is nice.

Men's Warehouse
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We had a great experience. The tuxes were really affordable and we had no problems. They even did a good job keeping track of our huge and complicated order.

SilverHook Studios
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We got the ceremony only package. They were very nice, came to the rehearsal to check the place out, and were very unobtrusive and professional. We got our video back in just two weeks, and we were very impressed! They did a great job with the packaging too, even incorporated our programs into the menu on the DVD, which I thought was cute.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Loved my veils. I ordered a long, chapel length, single layer, cut edge veil for the ceremony and a short one for the reception. They were just under $60, including shipping, and I got them in about three days. The quality is great- a very sheer, nice tulle. They can do ANYTHING- you name it, they can make it.

Directional Strategies Travel
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Jennifer was fantastic. We went to Maui for the first time and wanted to make sure a professional helped us. She was great- we loved where we stayed, she worked well with our budget, and it was so nice not to have to worry about anything.

Guardian Angels Catholic Church
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
It was important to us to get married in a church that we belonged to, so we checked out a lot of churches before we finally decided on Guardian Angels. It's not one of the really pretty, old, traditional looking churches, but we felt at home there and have really enjoyed being parishioners. There is a 6 week class required to get married there, in addition to the PREPARE test, but we enjoyed the classes and everyone is very nice and easy to communicate with. It's not expensive for members to marry there and they are very accommodating. We had a great experience there and are happy that we got married in "our" church.

Kimi K Salon & Spa
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I found Amanda by accident. She is great with color and I absolutely LOVED my wedding hair! We changed quite a few things from the trial and it turned out perfectly. Most of my bridesmaids got their hair done there, too- its a great salon for a large bridal party. Everyone looked great!

EJ Photography Emily Dowd
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We absolutely, 100% loved Emily! Even my husband was raving about her all night (and he barely noticed our other vendors). He even told her she should charge more! It was like having an old friend hanging out with us on our big day. She was very calming when I started to get stressed about our timeline and was excellent at dealing with our 20 person (and at times quite belligerent) bridal party. Everyone loved her and our pictures turned out so well. My mom and sister were shocked at how she managed to be everywhere and catch everything. At times I completely forgot she was there. Definitely my favorite vendor. We also had our engagement pics taken by her and were very, very happy with them (I was totally convinced I would hate the way I looked and they turned out great!). She also does boudoir photos. Highly recommend!

San Marino Club
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Reception Site: We loved the San Marino Club and highly, highly recommend! We got tons of compliments on the food and on how nice the place was. I really liked that everything (including bar, gratuities and service charges) was included in the per person price (which, for a Friday, is surprisingly low). They were great to deal with. I didn't spend very much on reception decor, but I still felt like everything was beautiful all because of how pretty the hall is. We didn't have a single problem with them.
