Davids Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The service I received at the David's Bridal in Brookfield, WI was pretty good. The lady helping me was very patient - even when I couldn't decide between two dresses. She went above and beyond and dressed two mannequins for me so I was able to see them side by side. I would definitely recommend having an appointment when you go - they won't see you with out one. My bridesmaids dresses were also purchased at this location. We had a minor issue with one of the dresses being much smaller than the original (we knew this because two of the dresses were the same size - one fit and the other didn't.) They were happy to exchange it for a different dress. Overall, happy with the service I received!

Vici Capilli
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I had my makeup and hair done at this location and my bridesmaids had their hair done here as well. They did a decent job, however, from my experience in many weddings I think the Brookfield location does better overall. Brookfield was full when I called (4 months in advance!) so make sure to call early!!! I would recommend the Hwy 100 location for their massages (very reasonably priced!!), but for hair I would go to Brookfield.

Creations for the Moment Cakery
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We were pleased with our cake - it was delivered on time, tasted great and looked beautiful! The only thing I was unhappy about was that we had requested a separate cake for my mom's birthday (the next day during the gift opening) which Shirley had said would be $10, but when I told her how many people it was for she told me it was $75!! I was unhappy that she wouldn't honor her original quote. Overall though we were pleased. Shirley works out of her home so it was nice to support a local business.

Flowers Ala Carte
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We were happy with our service at Flowers A La Carte. There was one mishap - they forgot one of the bridesmaids bouquets, but luckily our ceremony site wasn't far away so they were able to quickly make a new one. The flowers turned out beautifully. We also purchased our invitations through them and received a discount because we had bought flowers. They only took 2 weeks to ship!

Carey Limos
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We received a recommendation from my husband's roommate to go with Carey and we're glad we did! They were very reasonably priced and the limo bus was roomy and clean. They showed up on time and allowed us to bring drinks/snacks on the bus which was nice.

Tina Cotton
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Tina is very reasonably priced and does great work! She works out of her home and her turn around time is about 1-2 weeks. She also did alterations for my flower girl, jr. bride and my mom. We were very happy with how everything turned out!

Jared - Gallery of Jewelry
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband and I went to search for engagement rings together. The ring he ended up getting is very unique, high quality and reasonably priced! We were happy with our service at the Brookfield, WI location. They were very eager to help. We had a few issues when my special size order came in (we had to return the loaner ring and purchase the special order ring), but eventually it was worked out and I'm happy with the results!

Mama Mia Italian Cuisine
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The food was great - except they were not ready for us!! We had to wait for them to get the food prepared which was disappointing.

The Venice Club
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
There is a separate banquet hall entrance and bathrooms for your guests. The hall can be separated depending on the number of people you have- we had about 150 which was a comfortable number. With 150, the tables didn't have to cover the dance floor which we preferred otherwise the tables would have to be taken down half way through the reception. There are two bars - usually only one is open unless you have enough people to open the second. Everyone raved about the food - something you don't hear often at a wedding reception!! We were very happy with the service we received.

Affinity Studios, LLC
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Our experience with Affinity was good. The photographer, Casey, was very personable and patient with my husband who tends to blink - A LOT! We had a engagement session on the lake and the pictures turned out beautifully. Our wedding pictures were also very nice - Casey was friendly, professional and not pushy. I would have liked some more "artsy" photos, however, so make sure he knows what you are looking for. My MOH also went with Affinity for her wedding and both of us have had some issues getting responses/photos back after the wedding was over. I received CDs and proofs fairly quickly (3 months), but have not received my album as of yet. It has been almost a year and a half - they will not even answer the phone or return my messages any more.
