This was a life saver for us because we were not experienced dancers. It was fun to learn the actual techniques and know what we were doing. Guests were impressed at our wedding too! The instructors were great, you could tell they were experienced dancers and in really great shape. They would show us what to do and then let us try it, coaching us along the way. We learned a ton and had a great time doing it! Pricing was decent too. We will definitely go back again for fun!

It was nothing exciting but it was nice and we had a Cadillac Escalade limo which looked really cool driving around town. The driver had a special little "red carpet" that he rolled out for us and made us feel like celebrities. It was pretty cool. Other than that it was just a normal limo, driver was polite and seemed experienced and professional.

This is my favorite place to go, so we went there for a Bridal Shower dining evening, and it was a blast. If you go on Thursday nights they have wine tastings and they are really fun. They are located right next to a cheese shop and they do cheese tastings as well so it makes for a fun and unique night out with the girls. Their food is American, but it's upscale and nice, with fresh entrees and unique appetizers...and of course delicious wine. I highly recommend this place for a special night out! Every time we go we get great service.

My husband and I met on match.com so we knew when it came to favors we had to do match boxes!! We searched the internet for weeks to find the best place and we finally ordered our match favors from Wedding Things online. We ordered the colored boxes with the foil Monograms/date on them. They turned out really nice and looked really sharp with our colors. We were very happy with the turn out and everyone thought it was such a cute idea. We were glad we found that sight!

We were crazy and trying to save some money in our budget so my Mom, sister and Grandma and I made all the flowers for the wedding. They turned out beautiful but I would NOT recommend this to others. It was so stressful and so much work righ tbefore the wedding and I was not able to relax and enjoy the time with family as I shoudl have been doing before getting married. Of course it took way longer than planned, and we were up late the night before the wedding finishing up. We saved probably $2000, but looking back I would have paid double to have someone else do them for us! Don't DIY with this one---not worth it. (SAm's club was wonderful, and allowed us to order the flowers wholesale and we put them all together, this bad review is more towards doing the flowers yourself than Sam's, they were pretty good through it all although they could not get in some of the flowers I really wanted).

The Groveland Tap
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is a hole in the wall bar in a college town but it is my husbands favorite so the guys went there for some beer, good food, games, and whatever else guys do for bachelor parties! They wanted a semi-low key night and it is the perfect place to go. Of course they picked a night when there was some kind of sports on tv to watch, and their night was set. This place has the best food, especially their burgers and they have yummy fried pickles. I even like to go there! It was a great place for them to hang out for the night, with a good location close to other bars and hotspots around the area.

Hotel Ivy

We stayed here for my bachelorette party. This place is pristine, so nice and "expensive-looking" if you know what I mean. It's in a great part of the city because there is always something to do in downtown Minneapolis. We walked to the Melting Pot for dinner and then went to a few bars downtown that night. The rooms were so nice and clean and it never felt like we were staying in a hotel...although the price was as if we were in a villa in Italy! It wasn't bad for us all to split, but alone it would have been outrageous for two nights. It was well worth it.
