( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The food at Wildflower is American Bistro, and is delicious! The space is very comfortable and chic, without feeling pretentious. This restaurant, aside from having great food, has the perfect upstairs loft space for showers! My Maid of Honor threw my Bridal Shower at Wild flower, and they were so accommodating and kind! The girls enjoyed having wonderful food and a great atmosphere to relax for the afternoon. We had brunch that included an omelette station, fresh baked breads and pastries, and mimosas!

Bailey's Chocolate Bar
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Though this place is great for any romantic night out, it is also great for a group of girls to celebrate a bachelorette night! The red walls and cute, bistro tables make everything feel sexy and fun! We reserved a group of tables for our large party, and ordered lots of flatbreads and, of course, chocolate! The only downside is it can get a little tight when the place is packed but as long as you expect that, you are right at home. Go early if you dont have a reservation it fills up fast.

The Wedding Show
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
While some of the vendors there were good, there was a large inconsistency between levels of vendors, price-points, etc. The bridal show only displayed a handful of styles, and the models were wearing too-large gowns that didnt show correctly. Overall not a good use of the 8 dollar entry fee. The set up felt a little hokey-to say the least. You are better served to cruise the wedding websites and find great reviews of local vendors!

Wedding Wonderland Cake Shop
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I used to only think there were 1 or 2 legitimate bakers to get a wedding cake from in St. Louis until I met the bakers at Wedding Wonderland! Their prices were unbeatable, the service wonderful, and the cake delicious! They customized a cake for me to coordinate with my colors and flowers that were desired, and most importantly delivered a great cake on time to the reception site! All of the flavors we sampled were great but we went with alternating tiers of almond cake and marble cake with butter cream icing.

Leonard's Tailoring
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Leonard runs a wonderful tailoring business that tackled all of my wedding needs and beyond! I had all of my bridesmaid gowns fitted with him, as well as my wedding gown altered and bustled. He has many years of experience in alterations for many department stores, and was very trustworthy with my one-and-only wedding gown! Also to note Leonard is not in on Mondays, and his assistant Nadia is often there she is a wonderful new addition to his business. Side tip the easiest parking is behind the building, and he only accepts cash and check!

Benjamin Brown Graham Chapel
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Priority for booking Graham Chapel is giving to students, staff, and faculty, with the general public next on the list. If you are looking for a beautiful chapel where you can have outside clergy perform your ceremony, Graham Chapel is a great choice. The space also needs little decorating, since the marble floors, hardwood, and beautiful stained glass fill the room more than flowers ever could! Please note - Graham Chapel seats 500 including the upper balcony, and the balcony gives a great view for your videographer to shoot the ceremony.

The Chase Park Plaza
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Just a note for all brides looking to block rooms at the Chase, they do have you sign a contract, obligating you to 10 room nights over your event weekend. We found all of our guests were thrilled to stay in such a vibrant, historic hotel that was close to many great shops and restaurants! The theatre on the main level was a selling point for any family with children, while the proximity to Forest Park sold all of our outdoorsy attendees! My new husband and I stayed here on our wedding night as well. Our 1 room suite was perfect! We loved returning home to such a beautiful space at the end of a long evening with friends and family.

Lit Cigars
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband used this great place for his bachelor party and was not disappointed! The guys were able to rent the entire establishment, have cigars, poker, and great places to lounge and relax. The space includes poker tables, pool tables, great tvs, and of course, cigars! It really is a guys guy paradise! They even let them bring in catered outside food for the event! We liked them so much we ended up using them for cigars for our wedding reception.
