Minneapolis didn't have a ton of good selection of dresses at the stores i went to until I ended up (by accident) at the wedding shoppe. I didn't even know it was there but as soon as I walked in I was excited. They had so many gowns to look at that I was overwhelmed. My sales lady was very nice and helped me narrow down what kind of style I was looking for. From there we went to color and so on. I ended up finding my perfect dress that day and went back to purchase it the next. I also bought accessories there like our unity candle, flowergirl basket and guest book, it was a major hit on my checklist of items to get done!

I didn't know where to find a decent priced flower girls dress anywhere until I was referred to target online. They had a great selection for small girls and at really good prices. We found a dress that almost matched mine identically-it was so cute and I was very happy. It was nice to click and buy online instead of having to go browse at multiple stores. Target has everything! I would definitely recommend target.com!

We didn't have the best experience with our floral lady. She seemed attentive and like she would do a great job but when we arrived at the reception the flowers were not exactly how we had asked them to be, some arrangements had different flowers than we agreed upon and she said it was because she was unable to get them in last minute because they bloomed later in the season that normal so they weren't in bloom. Wouldn't that be something you call and tell me about and ask what other flowers I would like instead? i thought so. Instead she substituted a cheap looking flower that I did not particularly care for. In the end, our centerpieces looked great and you would never be able to tell but I was upset that I didn't get exactly what I wanted. I would probably go somewhere else next time.

We had cookies made that looked like wedding presents for our favors and they were so delicious, with a hint of almond and with buttercream vanilla frosting. They were to die for !! They were each decorated with our wedding colors in frosting and individually bagged for placement at each guests seat. I got more compliments than anything on the cookies, and I didn't even get to eat mine! They were wonderful to work with and gave us a discount because of the high volume we ordered from them. I will definitely order from them again!

This is the best vacation spot we've ever been to, and we've been on numerous "romantic" trips before....this compares to none. We stayed in a condominuim (right by the mountains) which was nice because it came with a fully equipped kitchen....so on the lazy nights where we didn't want to go out we could grab something little and make it in our room, and never have to leave if we didn't want to ;) The resort is beautiful and had so much to offer. The activities were endless, the staff incredible and the food amazing! We played tennis, golfed, and rode horseback on the beach. Hawaii is amazing and we can't wait to go back!

MY bridesmaids surprised me with a trip to LA for my bachelorette party. It was the same weekend that my husband had his bacheleor party and I was bummed I didn't have anything going on until my bridesmaids kidnapped me from my house ! It was a great weekend, we stayed at a nice Marriott that was close and convenient to the shopping areas and places we wanted to visit. It was near restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk so it was nice that we didn't have to take a cab unless we wanted to. The hotel was updated and tidy and we were treated like VIP guests. They made us feel welcome and the stay wonderful!
