St Mary's Center
Jack was our DJ, and was more than we had hoped for. He was energetic, got the crowd dancing, was able to "read" the crowd and play the music everyone seemed to get into. He even brought a "back-up" that night because he wasn't feeling well and wanted to ensure that everything would go smoothly if he had to step out for a little. His planning for the evening was exceptional, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend using him.

Wedding packages available and after looking around at other places, the prices were the same. The salon itself is very classy, and the wedding party had a place to set up champagne, muffins, scones, etc. while getting hair and make-up done. The girls were very nice and tried to get exactly what you had in mind done to your hair. Try to book well in advance because they only take one wedding party at a time, so if someone else has your date, you may be out of luck! We all had a nice experience there.

Because we had a Christmas wedding, it limited our invitation selection. We found one we liked on this site that we couldn't find anywhere else. Many of the invitations on this site could be found with other vendors (for example, the same ones were at the bake shop where we got our cake and at printing companies that do invitations). If you find one you like, check out other vendors too so that you get the best pricing for it. Also, our order was sent incomplete. We had ordered seals for the envelopes that never came. When I contacted the company, they reimbursed my credit card but we never got the seals.

While the dresses were beautiful, the prices for alterations were ridiculous. If the dresses just need a hem or strap adjustment, it may be more economical to take it to a seamstress and save a few hundred dollars. There's a great place in Kingston called Alterations by Liza I think, and she is very reasonable. The only thing they'll tell you at David's though, is that once you take the dress from the store it's your responsibility to have it adjusted. Also, one of my bridesmaids who had her dress adjusted at David's had her straps break right before the ceremony. My nana-in-law saved the day with some spare thread that held them together again!!
