The staff were friendly and very helpful. They listened to what I wanted and were not snobbish or rude. And they let me look through the wedding racks myself, some wedding shops wont let you do that.

A nite on the town
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
the dresses were a bit pricey for what we purchased. I thought of this as more of a prom dress or beauty queen dress shop but if you are looking for those kind of dresses, all bejeweled and bright colors, then this would be the place to look. As for tone-downed bridesmaids dresses, they had a limited assortment in there showroom. I also give this three stars because when I called to check on the dresses that still had not come in after the date the shop gave us, they said they couldnt find the paperwork and didnt have an order for me they found it a day later, but the dresses showed up a month after they promised. I do like that they allowed all bridesmaids to pay separately.

JCPenney Salon
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
my husband found my engagement ring while we were at the black Friday sale at JC Penny. It was on sale half the price of the original price. The quality is great and they have an excellent warranty. They didnt have many options for my wrap, but I still found one I liked there. The only problem is if you purchase the warranty, they dont have it in the system meaning they dont keep records or computer records of purchasing the warranty. And they dont have too many options for diamond rings.

Patti Patterson Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
THE BEST! She was not afraid to try new things, she does a lot more photojournalism and was not in our way during the wedding. She was like a ninja, I hardly ever saw her. Not because she wasnt there, but because she wanted to keep the essence of our day and not make us stop to pose every 5 seconds. We had to take a bit of a hike to get to this really beautiful spot by a lake and she was all for it. She really wanted to do creative shots and was open to anything we requested. She met with us multiple times before the wedding and did a walkthrough of the site before the actual day of the event to scope out good photo ops. Her pricing is amazing and the quality she of work she does is impeccable. She goes well above and beyond what she promises and in the end has the most amazing breathtaking photos.

Paulin did a wonderful job at alternating and cleaning/pressing my wedding gown! I had intricate beading that she took special care of as the alterations could have ruined it. My dress was absolutely wonderful thanks to her! And the price was extremely reasonable. J

Admiral Kidd Catering and Conference Center
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
the food was good, the meats were a bit salty, but everything else tasted fine. The food for the main dinner meal was good, but not spectacular. However the hors dourves were amazing! They were so tasty and so filling that I didnt even eat much of the main meal.

Bridal Bazaar
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
HUGE event. I found so many vendors and options and even got ideas for my wedding just by attending. The tickets were not pricey, there were even food samples to make up for it. It is a huge hall, San Diego Convention Center, so it is definitely an all day event!

La Jolla Indian Campgrounds
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Great place to go camping and get away in nature. Has bathrooms and showers and either tent camping or RV camping. Also has a river that runs through the campsite where you can float down on inner tubes. We gave it four starts because it is a bit pricey to stay up there.

Admiral Baker Clubhouse
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
absolutely beautiful! Good price and it accommodated all our guest. It had bride and groom changing rooms, a nice seperate bar, a huge ballroom and a roofed patio with a gorgeous view for the ceremony. We had both ceremony and reception here. Beautiful scenes for wedding pictures! The vendor worked within our budget. Just make sure to book early, a year in advance! I took away a star because they day of the event they were late on setting up which in turn made us have to wait an hour later than we were originally told that we could set up which made things run a little late.

The greatest show on earth! If you like fun, naughty but innocent fun, they this is the place! All of the staff are dragqueens that have a great voice and belt their hearts out on stage. They have great shows and even have things like bitchy bingo and taco bars! Each night is something different. And if you are a bride, you get called on stage and get a free shot and a take home souvenier picture!

Edelweiss Bakery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
cutest little shop tucked away. They let us have cake samples without making an appointment. they gave us typical samples and even made specialized samples of what we were looking for, just for us! They helped us to design our own wedding cake without having to pick one out that someone else already had. They delivered it to the reception hall on time and in perfect condition. The cake was amazing! And the price was unbeatable!

Simplicity Floral Design
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
the florist showed up an hour late, which made it cut into picture time with our photographer. She also promised baby ferns in the boutonnieres, but then changed it last minute, only letting me know via email the day before the wedding, who has time to check email the day before you get married? I didnt! So it was a surprise when they were not what we expected. She did work within our budget, that is why she gets 3 stars and when she did finally show up, she set up everything herself and it looked nice.

Krystina Torres
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
she worked on myself along with my 4 bridesmaids. I booked her two weeks before my wedding because my previous hairdresser I was planning on using bailed on me. She does stunning work and when I explained to her what I wanted, she also did some research to find pictures of what I was explaining. She came to our hotel to do everyones hair and got done in a timely manner. She was so sweet and friendly and worked within my budget!

Rachel Dixon
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had to find Rachel last minute because the makeup/hair stylist cancalled on me 2 weeks before my wedding. Rachel was very sweet and understanding of what I was looking for. She tried various looks and had no problem if I wanted to change something. She came to the hotel to do my make-up and even gave me some refresher make-up. I also had her put body jewels on my tattoos and she really did a great job. Her products were of very high quality. She is an independent contractor that used to work for MAC make-up and has formal training with them.

Michael Marois
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
Absolutely horrible! He cancelled on me two weeks before my wedding because he was upset I didnt like the trial hair he did, which looked nothing like what I wanted or the pictures I brought in! I asked him if we could do another trial and try a different hairstyle and he rudely said I didnt realize you had a degree in hair designHe was extremely rude and snobby and even was cussing in front of me, very unprofessional! I only found him because I won half off his expensive services at the bridal bazarr. He refused to meet with me until one month before my wedding, even thought I requested to meet two months earlier at the least just so we can make sure we were on the same page. Then when he cancelled on me, he wouldnt even give me my deposit back and HE cancelled on ME! I was outraged!
