touch up kit which got stolen at the B Room later that day but I did not feel the need to touch up anyway. Airbrush makeup worked great on the three of us (none of us wear make up regularly). I changed my mind on how I wanted my hair to look many times after the trial and she patiently corresponded with me and gave me great suggestions. Dislike: She arrived 15 min early but ended up being 1.5 hour behind schedule. It didn't cause us too much trouble because I have figured in some cushion time, but of course it would be better if she finished on time.

My invitations are half DIY. I got them printed then bought dry flowers from this site to paste on the invitations. They have a great selection and the order went smoothly. No problem with them at all.

they kept pushing me to order one of their gowns, which I thought was only so so and they would not tell me the name of it

I did not care so much about flowers and didn't want to spend much money on something that would wilt after the day. I also wanted simple arrangements that are stylish but need as few flowers as possible. Then I saw a photo of a centerpiece by Gina from Lotus's vendor review on wedding channal. That ended up to be my centerpiece as well. Like: I set a very small flower budget and Gina was willing to work with it. She also gave me a lot of ideas and suggestions at our meeting and after the meeting via emails. She helped decorate the cake table on the day, which should have been the caterer's job. I really like her altitude and personality. Dislike: I was quite disappointed when I saw my bouquet. I asked for pink callas lily (I showed her a photo of a dark pink callas), but the callas in my bouquet were more like pale purple and there weren't many of them. It really wasn't the color I wanted, and the bouquet was only slightly bigger than my MOH's. Gina later explained to me that it was hard to get the exact color of callas I wanted. I still think she could have got a better color though. She also forgot to give me the complimentary bouquet for tossing, which was not a big problem for me since I decided not to do a bouquet toss, but could be a big problem for others. Also I mentioned to her that I didn't like roses, but they still appeared in my ceremony and head table arrangements. I probably should have been more specific and told her not to use roses at all.

Cake tasting was the best part of wedding planning. I love cakes! In the end we picked Julie because the groom wanted a Tiramisu cake and she had the best Tiramisu among all the great bakers. Like: The cake tastes really good and everyone loves it. She is also very talented and is a lovely person to work with. Dislike: The cake didn't turn out to be the way I wanted. The green borders should look like bamboos with a few bamboo leaves (the color wasn't right and there were no leaves), there were supposed to have a few more sugar flowers (supposed to be around 10 but I only saw 5), and the three layers were supposed to be skewed (they look more like they are not aligned right). It actually looks better in photo but when I first saw it I was really disappointed. Another thing is, she charged a fee for every meeting after the initial tasting, I don't know if that is standard practice or not. I didn't want to pay extra for meetings so I finalized the design with her over the phone. I thought she understood what I wanted but I guess she didn't. It probably would turn out much more like what I have in mind if we had met and talked in person.

Like: I checked out all the wedding gown sites online, including: pearlsplace.com, gownsale.com, bridalgown.net, weddingexpressions.com, bridalgown.com, netbride.com, RK bridal, ebay and Discount Bridal Service (went bankrupt). Netbride did not have the lowest price but they offered to match the lower price from another site. I went with them since they had great reputation. They were very responsive to emails and my dress came in 3 weeks before the "outside date", everything was perfect. Dislike: If you email them about the status of your dress more than one month before the outside date, a generic email would be sent to you automatically, saying that your order is fine and you don't need to worry about it. I emailed them twice and got the same email twice, and figured out the trick. I emailed them again about that and they wrote me a "real" email and apologized. I guess it is understandable and forgivable considering the volume of emails they get.

They are my favorite vendor. Immediate responses to emails and a great couple to work with. The best thing about having a couple is that Cynthia can be with me the whole time I was getting ready while Bill stayed with the guys. They shot a good mix of posed/traditional and photojournalist photos, as well as group photos. We got our proof back in less than 2 weeks and the DVDs in less than 1 month. They definitely captured our best moments.
