I love the Yale Club. I've not yet been there for a wedding (I anticipate one coming up) but for many other functions. Its very spacious. The food at every event has been top notch. Usually club food leaves much to be desired however each time I've been to an event there I've been very much surprised by how delicious and beautifully they present the food. Also the ballroom is really just beautiful and as past reviews have stated, I can't foresee it requiring much decoration!

the food was incredible, the staff was knowledgeable and so friendly. We had a small, family-only rehearsal and they took care of everything. The food was even better than I could have expected. Wonderful atmosphere!

Janice Henderson
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Janice really made the dress fit my body perfectly. She has made, from scratch, several other wedding dresses including hand making the lace. I was very confident she could do it considering how she had worked with lace in the past. I was really pleased with how she sewed in undergarments which made it so much easier for me. She really made the dress my dress and her services were very very reasonably priced

Princeton-Columbia Club of New York City

The alternative website is http://www.princetonclub.com/. The two websites are for alumni of the respective schools however the club facility is the same which can be kind of confusing. I think the club has some beautiful event facilities. There are multiple facilities that would be appropriate including the James Madison Room, Prospect Lounge and the Nassau Room. I have not been to a wedding there but as a member I've been to a lot of events. The food is pretty good, the cocktails are great (they're always strong!) and the staff is very friendly. I have to say its probably one of the more reasonably priced facilities in New York. There are hotel facilities and the rooms are also very competitive. I've put family up there and they took great care of them and were able to just send me the bill. They allowed access to the squash courts and gym below for my guests staying in the club too. Be aware that jackets are required for anything other than the athletic facilities and cell phones are required to be off which actually makes things a little more pleasant!

They have invitations starting at $12/set. I ordered Save the Date stickers from them which was very reasonable, $30/50 and they were just beautiful. Fast service and shipping, very elegant product.

Jayne Williams Co Cake Tops
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I loved our personalized military cake topper and this seller was by far the best price. I paid around low $70's where others quoted me around $100 for the same exact topper. It was a hit, so kitschy, people loved it! They were very helpful in answering my questions and shipped it out quickly. Photos in my bio

I wouldn't hesitate for a second to suggest Mike & Jess. They have a way of making you feel so comfortable, they are the sweetest people to work with and they are really talented. I sent Jess a 17 page slideshow of sample photos, some photographers would be really annoyed by that but Jess was thrilled to see what I liked. They were really flexible in trying to get shots that we requested and really to get the feeling of what we liked. Mike has an eye for it and can capture the most wonderful light. Because of my medical condition, I was really nervous about my body and how it would look in photos. Mike and Jess did their best to capture the most flattering angles. I would absolutely not hesitate to send someone to them. If you don't believe me, go to my bio and see my wedding photos for yourself!! Also, included in your package is a free engagement session which I thought was awesome, just as a chance to get to know them so you can be relaxed and really enjoy the wedding day. Also, they were very discreet and agreed to allow my videographer to put some of my photos into the video as a montage. Again, do hire Mike & Jess, you will not regret it and to top it off, they were reasonably priced so even a modest budget could afford them.

I couldn't have asked for more from the staff. Everything was perfect. Beth Williams was my sales manager and handled our account from start to finish answering every little question. We didn't see the site until about a month before the wedding because of the military and being stationed in the middle of nowhere (three hours to a decent civilian airport...). Beth took the time to email me photos and contracts and made it almost too easy for me. Kristie Newsome was our catering manager. I loved working with her because we made so many adjustments to our menu in the week preceding and she rolled with each of them! She was so flexible and accommodating. Then our event manager, well we worked with different ones for the brunches but for the most part it was Darren. I didn't catch his name but he was so on top of everything. The weather threatened to rain on our cocktail party Friday before the wedding. I called his office to ask if we needed to move tables inside, he said he already had it taken care of! Then two guests had converted since college and decided to keep kosher without notifying me... Darren made the last minute change and got two kosher meals with moments notice! Then during our first dance, Darren coordinated the timing to be perfect so that the fireworks started once we hit the dance floor! It really exceeded my expectations in every way. The cake was phenomenal and the food was even better. The rooms were wonderful as well. Best decision I made in the wedding planning process! It was by some wedding standards extravagantly priced but not really considering all they did for me. And you really do get what you pay for. In the end our bill was way under my original budget.
