Wedding Wonderland Cake Shop
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
They did a FANTASTIC job on our cake! We ordered a Mad Hatter, 5 tiered, multi-flavored cake. They only use butter cream icing, and did fantastic decorating our cake to match colors and requests of designs. They have a large variety of cake flavors and fillings. They have been around for 25+ years, and have earned a good reputation in the community. They were easy to work with and had a very reasonable price. For a 5 tier Mad Hatter cake that fed 200 people it cost $2.75 per slice.

Spa WingHaven
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Ive been using Cassie as my stylist for YEARS! We did 2 trials (up do and down). The spa can help you with every thing you may need the day of your wedding, and help you relax. Hair, nails, make-up, facials, botox, you name it you got it! A little pricey, but after youve had 1 glass of wine you will forget about the bill.

Sheraton Maui
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
PARADISE.Maui is beautiful with so much to do, and see. You can relax, or take an adventure. There are so many things to see on this island you will need to be there for 1 month. The Sheraton takes care of your every need. They have snorkeling available at the beach right out your hotel room. The hotel pool is huge with plenty of room to sun/swim. There are free classes daily at the Resort, hula/snorkeling/lei making. Restaurants on the resort were a little expensive, but the WHOLE experience is worth it. JET LAG on the way back if you take the red eye.

Savvi Formalwear
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
They did not give a lot of info about how to return the tux. They are VERY busy, and you have to talk them down for a LOW cost. A little difficult to work with, and did not want to help when we received a wrong size. They basically let you pick out whatever you want and do not give suggestions. They ALWAYS send out great deals to get your business, and most of the time it is worth it. (free plane trips/50% off invites)

Affordable Limousine Service
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
Not very helpful choosing transportation for my size wedding party. The limo we chose said it seated 22 people and we could BARELY squeeze in 14! The limo was HOT and cramped. It was difficult to get into. I would definitely recommend transportation you can walk up onto. Such as a shuttle bus, or party bus, it was very hard to get in/out and HOT because of the limited room. Also it was a little pricey for the quality of the limo Navigator.

The Wedding Gallery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Alterations done by Nagwa (store owner). She carried a large selection of bridal gowns, and bridesmaid gowns, mostly Alfred Angelo, Maggie Sottero. Wedding gowns are available to purchase off the rack, or to order in your size/color. She carries regular, womens, and plus sized dresses. Dresses arrive QUICK, and alterations took as little as 1 day. She can also design and make a dress from ANY material. Very personable and LOVES what she does.

Chocolate Cafe & Coffee House
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Bridal Shower Location: Cute little caf! We were able to rent out the store on a Sunday, when they are not typically open. We had the entire place to ourselves. Very cute, and the staff was nice and personable. GOOD PRICE (under $300) for the store, lunch, and drinks. Lunch included sandwiches and wraps (turkey/chicken salad/veggie/chicken ceaser), salad, chocolate dipped fortune cookies, water, and tea. The bride receives a mini cake of various flavors. You are able to bring in your own extras; we did cupcakes, and decorate however you would like. The staff at the caf sets up and cleans up.

Dardenne Presbyterian Church
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
BEAUTIFUL church! Staff was pretty good to work with. We were not members and every time we would go back to pick up something or meet some one to discuss something about our wedding they would forget that they had met us. It was pricey and they had stipulations (photographer could not enter church further than 6th pew from the back). We had a wedding coordinator to work with and she always responded to questions in a timely manner. We were required to complete 4-6 pre-marital counseling sessions, paid for through our medical insurance, or private pay.

Although I have seen some pretty bad DJs from Complete Music, I called and requested an outgoing DJ. DJ Dave was fantastic! He kept the party going all night long. He even made the bride and groom sit down so the wedding party dance for them. He did not hassle guests trying to get song requests, and used props to keep the kids entertained. Definitely request DJ DAVE!

Hearts and Roses Florist
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
They were a little difficult to work with. They did not give a contract to sign, or tell me the price of my flowers, they just told me that they would work with my budget, and use my flower ideas to create something I would love. I had to trust them to make exactly what I wanted. They did a mock up of my wedding flowers to show me at a wedding show they attended. From that trial I was able to change what I wanted and the day of my wedding the flowers arrived and they were SPECTACULAR! I was highly impressed by what they had put together for my bouquet. Their price is extremely reasonable. For $2000 I got a bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, 2 mothers bouquets, 12 corsages, and 25 centerpieces. Very nice fresh flowers, would defiantly recommend them if you want some one else in charge of being creative with your flowers.

By Alice Boutique
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Huge selection of invitations and design-your-owns available to choose from. A little overwhelming, but the staff was very helpful. It took a little while to get a invitation preview, and for the order to come in, so order well in advance! My invitations turned out beautiful! They will even put them together, address them, and send them out for an extra fee.

Tom Paule Photography
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Very reasonable price. One guy (Tom) who works out of his home. He LOVES photography and that shows in his pictures. He is very creative with albums, great to work with. A little slow at getting back to you after the wedding. He does a lot of wedding/aerial photoshoots, so he is busy a lot.

Old Hickory Golf Club
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
BEAUTIFUL location! Very secluded and quiet, perfect scenery. Pretty expensive, you pay for every single extra thing you want, and they do not budge on their prices. Staff was easy to work with but not very helpful the day of the wedding. They changed things around on us at the last min, and did not inform us. (Where guests enter) So we had guests roaming around the place and going into the high school reunion next door. The food was FANTASTIC! Wait staff took very good care of us and our guests.

Grappa Grill
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
Rehearsal Dinner: We booked this venue then they changed the menu on us. The food was not very good, but the waitress was AMAZING. She was so nice quick and helpful! We did have the back room, which was very far away from the restroom. I would not recommend this for a rehearsal dinner, Main Street Saint Charles is not far away, and they have a MUCH better selection of rehearsal dinner locations.
