Davids Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I was VERY hesitant to even try on dresses at Davids Bridal because I assumed their quality wasnt the best and that I wouldnt have a special and personal experience trying on dresses, like I would at a high end wedding boutique. I have to say that they definitely know what they are doing there. They made me feel like the only bride in there, even though it was a busy Sat. I found a dress that I fell in love with, plus it was on sale and I used a coupon. I know that you only where your wedding dress once and that its a waste to spend a fortune on it. I was looking for a nice shopping experience and thats what I got from Davids Bridal.

This was a last minute plan, it was a lot of fun and they recognized the Bachelorettes in the audience. The talent was amazing and the show was great. The food was only alright This is a unique place to go, but you have to be a fairly liberal person.

Bill did a great job as the MC of the evening and kept the whole night flowing. He knew all the songs we wanted to play and did not want played and followed it to the letter. We had such a variety of music and he did a wonderful job blending all the styles together throughout the evening.

Shanna does my hair on a regular basis, but is also the salons Bridal Expert. We did a practice style and took lots of photos and my hair looked even better the day of. I allowed her to be creative and I couldnt have asked for anything better then what she created.

I ordered my bridesmaids dresses from Alfred Angelo and had a terrible experience with them. The sales associates that I worked with every time were rude and irritated at questions and just that they had to do their job. Unfortunately I really liked the dresses I chose, so we were forced to use them. I wrote a letter to the store manager about the bad experience that I had, but never heard back. I would NOT recommend this company to any bride

WF&S
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
To save money we cut back on flowers. However we did do bouquets and boutonnieres. We were very pleased. They were the most reasonably priced and the flowers were gorgeous. They were extremely easy to work with during the planning process. I think we did all of our business back and forth via email and phone messages. That convenience was truly appreciated.

John Franklin Jewelers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I wish that we had found John Franklin Jewelers before the wedding to create my engagement ring. We had an exact idea of what we wanted my husbands ring to look like, and of course it wasnt just a simple gold band.

MCAS Miramar Officers' Club
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The ballrooms are a bit older and dated, but the staff was absolutely amazing. I knew I wouldnt have to worry about anything during the planning process. The day of the wedding the serving staff and bartenders were polite and discreet. The bartender even tried to remember the favorite drink each person ordered. I heard nothing but compliments from all of my guests about the location.

K1 Speed Circuit
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The guys are all car guys and they had a blast go cart racing for the Bachelor Party. They used one of the special packages and had the races all to themselves and even had awards for the winners. They all had a great time and thought it was a great place to have a Bachelor Party. After the races they went to Stone Brewerys Bar for beer.

Mariott
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
The hotel was nice, but too pricey. It wasnt anything special, just a standard Marriott. They didnt do anything to recognize that it was our wedding night.

Flour Power Cakery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We went through a lot of cake vendors and Flour Power is what we were looking for. This was the only vendor that would do a 4 tier cake that served a smaller guest count. The cake was delicious, our favorite out of everyone. Some vendors were irritated that you wanted to taste the cake. At Flour Power they have everything all planned out and it was a wonderful experience and planning process. Weddings are their specialty and it shows. They had so many designs to choose from, but we had an idea of what we wanted and they did exactly that.
