DANIELLE'S BRIDAL BOUTIQUE
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Danielle's Bridal was the first bridal boutique I ever went to. I made the mistake of going on a Saturday-- DON'T go then! It's always too busy and they only schedule you for an hour slot. I really liked the dresses they showed me, even though they were mostly out of my price range. I was extremely impressed, though, to get a follow-up call and a personalized, hand-written note in the mail afterwards.

Davids Bridal
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I expected mediocrity from David's Bridal in Colorado Springs, knowing that it was a chain and not expecting at all good service. I was, however, impressed by the lady that helped us and the range and reasonable price of dresses I found there. I thought it was strange, though, that the ladies in the store didn't help brides get their dresses on and off. The girls had to do that themselves.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Don't be intimidated by the big figure-- our wedding cost of $13,000 at the Pinery included the ceremony, flowers, dj, wedding planner, and an elaborate reception with dinner for 250. Ross and I wanted an outdoor wedding without the stress of worrying about rain. What we loved about the Pinery was its option to change at the very last minute into the beautiful chapel in case of rain. The outdoor area is gorgeous, with a pretty altar and surrounded by beds of colourful flowers in the summer.

The Fine Arts Center
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Fine Arts Center in Colorado Springs was our second choice-- they can do both ceremony and reception. When we first looked at a few pictures online, we were curious as to how so many people could fit into the skinny glass corridor we saw there. Pictures of the great hall fully decorated convinced us it was possible, and beautiful. The cost wasn't too bad, and the best part about this unique venue is the ART - the first thing the guests see when they enter the building is a huge, coloured, glass chandelier. It only gets better.
