A little spendy but worth it. My centerpieces were one of my favorite parts of my wedding. I had pink roses in square vases (I supplied) with rock in the vase and around it. My bouquet was roses and peonies, it was hard to pull off due to the peonies wilting but she did it. She made a flower ball for my daughter which was adorable also. All the bouquets and bouts held up great. She was on time and made everything the exact way I asked for it.

The Dressmaker actually made my wedding gown which included all the alterations that needed to be made in the process. We decided on the style and material to be used together, I brought a couple pics. Everything was just how I expected it except for the length of my train. I had asked for it longer than it was but it didnt turn out to be that long. But I still loved the dress. Only other minus was she was a little pricey.

The Loop Bar & Restaurant

I had my bachelorette party here when it was Mel's Beauty Bar. What a great place to start your bachelorette party, especially when the moms are there. We started with drinks some cheesy gifts and everyone got either a massage or manicure. I would recommend making reservations though if you have a large group.

We ended the bachelorette party here. The hotel portion of the night was horrible. The location was great and the price was right but we were the in the middle of July with 12 girls in one suite and the air conditioner broke. We were miserable all night.

Rush's Bridal
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I ordered 2 flower girls dresses from Rushs in Downtown Mpls. They had a great selection with lots of colors and unique styles. However the sales person did not know what she was doing when it came to sizes for toddlers. She recommended a size and when it came in it looked like it would fit a 10 year old (my daughter was 3). Unfortunately the dress didnt come in her size so I had to order a whole new dress completely. They did make up for it by giving me a hassle free return of the first one and rushing in the 2nd one.

For the money you pay to get into this thing ($20) it is way to overcrowded and you were lucky to even see one of the fashion shows. A lot of the vendors there are the more pricey ones. If you looking to a more budgeted wedding you are not going to get any ideas here. The only plus was you could get money off your tuxes if you played one of the games there.

Queen of Cakes

Great taste, great value. Appearance was not what I expected it to be. They were one of the cheapest out there and they even made me cupcakes for a majority of my reception along with a small standard wedding cake. The cupcakes were delicious filled with 2 different flavors. White with lemon and chocolate with cherry. However the large cake looked like something that came out of my kitchen, I was not impressed with the decoration and all it was was a simple smooth cake with a pile of cherries on top. But you could tell there were a lot of spatula marks and divets in the side.
