Chef Nelson's Cake Studio
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Our cake was done exactly how we imagined. Chef Nelson met with my husband and I personally and discussed and helped suggest ideas for our perfect cake. It tasted incredible, my guests were all thrilled. I'm very excited, also, that Chef Nelson will make us a new top tier for our year anniversary so we don't have to eat the stale one in our freezer! Great variety of fillings and icings. Chef Nelson was knowledgeable, helpful and gave us a really great deal!

Our coordinator- Marty- was really friendly and helped out a lot, definitely made friends with a lot of our guests. The venue as a whole was simply gorgeous and let us have pretty much free reign with what we wanted to do, was really helpful in decor. The only complaint I have would be the flexibility of time- it was difficult for us getting everything set up and ready in time. However, they were professional and courteous and our vendors liked working with them as well. During the reception indoors, the natural light was beautiful. And our guests saw dolphins outside from the dock- so pretty. The dock was a great place to take photos as well. And, this all came at a fabulous price. I definitely recommend the Rec Complex to other brides!

Delectables was an awesome choice for our wedding catering! Their prices were fair and reasonable. We were able to exchange things from our set menu without a problem. The servers and waiters were helpful and kind, and even set up our linens and centerpieces and took extra special care of the bride and groom on our big day. Some even helped direct guests and stayed to help breakdown and clean up. I couldn't have asked for better. The guests talked for a long time about how incredible the food was, and I loved their set-up at the wedding as well. We were very pleased with Delectables!

My husband and I stayed the night at the DoubleTree on our wedding night, it was so perfect! We came into the hotel in our wedding attire and all the staff was so nice and friendly to us, everyone was very helpful. The room was clean and beautiful, with a balcony to sit on and a beautiful view of the ocean. The price of the room was wonderful too. I'd completely recommend this DoubleTree to any other brides!

Took a trip to Kleinfeld's to try on some wedding dresses before my wedding. I didn't end up finding my dress at the store, but I don't believe it was for lack of trying either. It really is a fabulous store, with so many dress options. But I was disappointed with how I was treated once I told my consultant what my budget was. When I told her I could sway a little bit, she made an insulting comment and started showing me dresses that were WAY out of my price range. She was also very pressuring when I tried dresses on. The whole experience just wasn't so great.

Liberty Florist
 
( 3.6 / 5.0 )
Dawn and Cindy are good family friends and provided great service. However, it wasn't what I had ordered and I was disappointed. This might have been a communication error on my part but it was certainly not entirely my fault. I would recommend Liberty Florist to others, but was not entirely pleased with the florals at my wedding.

Target
 
( 4.8 / 5.0 )
We registered at Target for our wedding, and despite the bad reviews I've heard from other people with wedding registries, ours was wonderful. We did receive a couple things in the mail from our registry that were broken because of not-so-great packaging, but we called customer service and they shipped new ones out right away. We were even able to return things and exchange things in store. It really was a great experience.

Zales Jewelers
 
( 4.6 / 5.0 )
This Zales location has fabulously helpful salespeople and a great choice of jewelry. They were so patient with my husband and I when we purchased our rings and even went above and beyond to help me put three rings together and dip them in rhodium, even though two of the rings were family heirlooms and not purchased from the store. They routinely check our diamonds and offer quick, friendly cleaning every time we stop by. Great service!

I bought my beautiful wedding shoes from Zappos.com! They had the absolute perfect shoes for my wedding style in the perfect height. Luckily for me, there was one left in my size and it was on sale for a great price. When I ordered them, I got them very quickly and was so pleased! Before discovering this website, I was hesitant to purchase shoes online. Zappos.com is my new favorite place to buy shoes!
