Diamonds Direct South Park
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This is the best jeweler in Charlotte! They have every price range and every style. Customer service is excellent. My husband said that they were very patient w/him when he went to pick out my e-ring and made him feel very comfortable. They give each ring a lifetime warranty on top of what ever the maker already provides. You also get free cleanings for life and they give discounts of 10 - 20% off often. You even get free jewelery cleaner and a chocolate bar with every purchase!

Rev. Collins was a wedding saver about three weeks before our big day. The officiant we originally booked about 7 months before our wedding had to back out about three weeks before we were scheduled to tie the knot. Luckily for us, Rev. Collins was willing to step in on super short notice and deliver a beautiful ceremony. Afterward when my husband and I later discussed it, our original officiant backing out was a blessing in disguise! We loved Rev. Diana Collins!

Blue Chip Jazz Band
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Chip Long and his jazz band are great! Chip is very professional, easy to work with and very talented. Blue Chip Jazz Band is also well priced. Music was very important to my husband and I and Blue Chip did not disappoint. They even let my husband's father sit in for a couple of songs! Even our guests loved them! We are very happy with the service they provided on our very special day.

Noble Brides
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is a small bridal salon, but the owner, Scott, gives very personalized attention when you book an appointment. Scott tries very hard to make his brides happy and help them out in anyway possible, even going above and beyond just the dress. This salon had an "upscale" feeling even though according to Scott, none of his dresses are over $1700. His selection is on the small side, but it is very easy to look through and he carries sizes 8, 10 or 12 for his sample dresses. My dress arrived early and he gave me a small discount for paying in cash. The only hesitation in giving Noble Brides 5 stars is that Scott can seem a scattered.

We booked the Shadow Rolls Royce for our wedding day transportation. I loved, loved, loved this car!!!! It was immaculate and beautiful, perfect for my grand entrance! The drive was very curious, timely and he knew exactly where he was going. The people at Poffie Girls were very easy to work with in booking the car and the prices were fair. I couldn't be happier with the level of service I received from this vendor!

Elizabeth Tolley NC Makeup Artist
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I can't rave enough about Elizabeth!!!! She is an amazing make up artist and stylist and I could not be happier with her work! She did my hair and make up for my day after shoot and 12 hours later I was still looking fierce! I have recommended her to so many girls and fellow brides and she has yet to disappoint. Her prices are very reasonable and she is willing to travel all over the place. Elizabeth is one of my favorite vendors from the entire wedding process!

This hotel has recently been remolded so all of the rooms are nicely appointed. Also, the staff is very helpful and courteous. They handed out our Out of Town bags and provided a shuttle for the wedding night from the reception for our guests. Marriott also worked with me to get a block rate that most of our guests would be okay with. Also, the staff is very helpful and courteous. They even surprised us by leaving complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in our room on our wedding night!

Matthew Primm Violin
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Matthew was amazing!!!!! He is very professional, affordable, responsive, and talented!!! My husband and I wanted a very specific and unusual song for my march down the aisle. We could not find sheet music, nor did we inform Matthew of our unconventional song choice until about three weeks prior to the big day. Well, Matthew happily came up with his own version of the song in no time and played it beautifully the day of. My husband and I could not be happier with this vendors level of service!

Las Ramblas
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The food, atmosphere and the staff are top notch at this Charlotte, NC eatery. I would love to give this place more than 5 stars, they were that fabulous! Melanie Tritten is the events coordinator and she does her job supremely. Jeff Latham is the restaurant manager and he knows his food, beer and wine like no other. Between the two of them it's impossible to have a wonderful reception! Melanie coordinated with all of my outside vendors for deliveries and set up. On the day of all I did was drop off the extra dcor (centerpieces, favors, cake knife, guest book, etc) with simple verbal instructions on how I wanted the place to look and Melanie and her staff took care of the rest. When my husband and I showed up to our own reception we were blown away with how great everything looked! At the end of the night no one had to lift a finger - Las Ramblas did it all! They packed up our dcor, left over food and cake and held it until we could send someone over to pick it all up the next day. And then there's the food! The food and drinks were fantastic! Our guests are still mentioning how our wedding had the best food of any wedding they had ever been to! This was a great value and my best wedding related decision. Period.
