Olga's Bridal and Formal Couture
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
If I could rate her more than a 5 I would. This woman is an incredible seamstress and just a happy person to be with while being pinned and tucked. She truly loves her job and seeing new brides. Her work is very neat, quick, detailed, and very fairly priced. I have referred numerous brides to her and they have all loved her. One of her favorite things is give each dress it's own special kind of bustle. She can pretty much do anything you ask. I know of quite a few brides who had to see her after their dresses were ruined from a previous seamstress' work. Luckily Olga was always able to save the dresses.

sweet t's cakes
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Her cake designs are incredible and unique. Shes very creative with some of the designs. Shes an artist who happens to bake, but her cakes definitely dont lack in taste. They were extremely moist and delicious. She was great to work with on pricing. I still crave the cake from our wedding, I wish I would have indulged in more than I did. Of all the wedding cakes I've had over the last 5 years, her's definitely tasted the best.

Angie's Catering
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Angie is just a piece of work. Lots of character in this lady. Shes wonderfully helpful, knowledgeable, and will work with you on menu pricing. The food was delicious, her staff was great. She will even help you save money wherever you can. She almost felt like a mother at times the way she looked out for us. =) I was so glad that she made sure we were able to eat and get enough of the food ourselves. It's such a shame when the bride and groom don't get to eat at their own wedding. I absolutely loved this lady and she takes real pride and joy in the work she provides.

Bridal Mart
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I think the best selling point of this place is that they will have the best prices. The dressing rooms are open so there isn't any privacy. While they have large dress selection, they didn't have much in the area of what type of dress I was looking for. They let you know when your order is in through a mailed postcard. I would have preferred a phone call so I could have picked them up and dropped them off in another state while I was visiting instead of having to ship all of them. I found out the dresses arrived 3 days before I left town.

Babbs Jewelry
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We went to several different jewelry stores to check out wedding bands to fit my e-ring. Because of it's design I knew it would be hard to find what I wanted. Every place I went to said that either they couldn't do it or it would cost four times what we ended up paying with Babb's. The jeweler was friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me exactly what I wanted without it costing 2.5 limbs. I absolutely love my set and plan to go to Babb's for any custom designs in the future. My sister in law purchased her wedding bands from Babb's as well.

Steven Ward Salon
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Whitney at Steven Ward: They were more expensive than I was hoping for but I believe that comes from the fact that it is a celebrity hairstylist owned salon. Whitney did a fantastic job, my hair stood up against lots of wind, lots of hugs, lots of dancing, and even 2 nights sleep.

The Wilmington Trolley Company
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We loved the trolleys. They showed up on time, they worked with me great on scheduling everything. Our guests appreciated not having to worry about the limited paid parking by the beach. They were more than we wanted to pay for transportation but it was a necessity for our guests and it was money well spent. Our guests really enjoyed the trolleys, as it was different and unique to them. It made a great photo op on our way to the reception having all of the wedding party and both families on it. The trolleys are a big part of Wilmingtons charm, so it was nice to be able to incorporate some of that into the wedding.

L and L Tent & Party Rentals
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
They are by far the cheapest and friendliest rental company in Wilmington. They dont offer the widest selection as some others, but they were extremely helpful and willing to do what was needed. I couldnt have been happier with them. The customer service was just excellent! They were so patient with all my questions, changes, and phone calls. They were willing to drop off/set up/pick up at any of time of the day we needed. They were just an overall pleasure to work with. They are able to order some things if they dont have it as part of their inventory.

Active DJ Entertainment
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
He wasnt my favorite vendor but still did a good enough job. He was the cheapest DJ in the area with lots of experience and a good reputation. There were a few communications mishaps that were faulty on both sides so I cant completely hold that against him. He did a good job, but I was still slightly disappointed. But again I think that is my fault for not remembering everything to tell him before hand. My guests loved him, and he was very helpful at the end of the night giving some of our guests a lift to their hotel.
