Weddings For Less, Inc.
Working for Weddings for Less was probably my favorite group of professionals to work with for my wedding! From the beginning they were very helpful in providing me options as to what colors and types of linens and center pieces I wanted for my wedding. They even went as far to give me so many ideas that we came up with an original centerpiece unlike all the ones they can already provide for you. The linens, back drops and flowers are very beautiful. They set up and take down the decorations for you, so it was a completely hassle-free experience with them.

Signature Brides only did my makeup, but I was pleased most of the time. I feel like the makeup was not as good-looking as the first time before my wedding, but it was still good. They are a little bit pricey for each makeup session, but the professional makeup is well worth it when weather and other things threaten your face. You have a lot of freedom to pick your own colors, but you also get a lot of advice as to which colors would compliment your face and eyes the best.

Anne's Cake Creations
Anne's Cake Creations provided me with the wedding cake of my dreams! During our first consultation together when I had a hard time verbalizing what I wanted on the cake, she was still able to draw out and plan exactly what I wanted! She listens to you very well, and the finished product is exactly what we designed on paper. She also had a taste-testing day where I came in and got to taste different cake and filling flavors to find what I liked. You can make each tier a different flavor if you want. She is very helpful in being honest to what cake batters and frostings are the best depending on what you want decorated on your cake. She was prompt in verifying what I wanted right before the wedding, and she performed a timely delivery of the cake to the reception center. Loved it!

Brown Brothers Catering was better service and food than I had imagined they would be. From the beginning they were very helpful in helping me decide which packages were best for the type of reception I was having. They also had a taste-testing night where my fiance and I went to their location and were able to eat from 4-5 different stations of food: crepe bar, italian sodas, turkey meal, soups, dips, meatballs, etc. So right away I was able to be confident that the food would taste good. The food was amazing at my reception, and the personnel there clears away plates and makes sure plenty of food is constantly on the table. They cut the wedding cake for free and graciously packed up the extra food for us to take home (we only had to provide the tupper ware to take it home) Great customer service!

The Flower Basket
I was originally very excited to use this local vendor, however in the end I was very disappointed. In planning I was quoted a certain amount for the total flowers we would be using including bouquets for bridals, etc. When I got the billed amount it was $70 more than they quoted before, and it also didn't include my separate bridals bouquet for $150. So make sure to clarify whether any flowers will be charged separate such as bouquets. Also, my bridal bouquets seemed to get smaller and smaller for each event I had. The bouquet for my bridal pictures was huge, the bouquet for my wedding was medium size, and the bouquet for the reception a week later was so small. I would not recommend this vendor except for small flower orders.
