Carmelle Reception Center
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Carmelle is a great place to get everything you need for a reception in one place. I looked all over the Salt Lake valley for a place that was pretty and classy as well as affordable. The place is beautiful, it looks a little dated on the outside, but the inside has been redone recently and looks great. They offer a lot of great deals if you go with them. They offer 20% off invitations, but my favorite bonus was that they offered a $200 credit toward a wedding cake from a specific vendor that I was very happy with. Carmelle takes care of all the clean up, which i liked because it will save my family some stress. The only negative I would say is that when you book here, they require you use their caterer. But on the flipside, they had some great options and the prices seemed reasonable compared to many others that I had looked at.

Fantasy Bridal was a great place to go for bridal gowns. i spent a whole day looking around at different options in different stores. when i came to fantasy bridal, they were very helpful. i did call and make an appointment, which worked to my advantage although they can almost definately fit people in without appointments. the girl helping me was so cute and helpful. they had lots of dress options to choose from. i myself was concerned with finding modest dress options, but they had lots to choose from no matter what you are looking for. i quickly found two dresses that i absolutely loved, and the girl helping me was very patient while i went back and forth trying each one on about three times. the only problem i didn't anticipate was that when i went to order mine, i found out it takes almost two or three months to come in, so i would recommend to any bride to find your dress at the beginning of planning. fantasy bridal was awesome, they were helpful, had beautiful dresses, and pretty reasonable prices compared to many others.
