Mountz Jewelers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Mountz is where I bought my husbands ring. They spent time with us picking out the right size and metal (he couldnt decide between tungsten or titanium). He chose tungsten, and she took care to order the correct size to the letter since it cant be adjusted once forged.

JCPenney Salon
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
He bought my rings at JC Penney (engagement) because they are one of the few vendors in the area who deal moissanite, which is what I wanted

Brother’s Restaurant
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
They werent quite ready for us on time, which was a bit unprofessional, but when they were, it was great food! They had excellent service as well and made sure to keep things stocked. They allowed us to decorate with custom centerpieces, and they looked beautiful. Their friendly staff was helpful but stayed out of the way and respected our privacy, too.

Davids Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Alterations: I liked Davids for picking out the dress and for the bridesmaids dresses; however, my dress was altered only slightly and I was not happy with the result. I had them add a little bit of padding in the bust because it was a strapless gown; when I tried it on, it was actually too tight and actually pushed my bust up too high, which was uncomfortable for me because I had to worry about it all morning. Also, my bridesmaids went to different DBs to get their dresses, and each one was a different length after alterations. They should have standard lengths across the board. Bridal Gown: Davids was extremely helpful with helping me pick out my dress. A wedding consultant spent almost four hours with me, and allowed me to try on as many dresses as I wanted. They were very helpful with the selection of accessories (shoes and veil), as well as very helpful with opinions and suggestions as to which dress best fit my figure. Bridesmaids Dresses: Davids was very helpful with picking out a plain, simple dress in a modest price range that all my girls could afford. The suggested accessories, though we decided against them, were very creative.

Grantham Church
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Grantham was easy to work with, although they do require marriage counseling for couples being married in their sanctuary which is something to consider if a couple doesnt want to do that. Lovely sanctuary--sprawling seats for guests on each side, roomy, a high ceiling, and a center aisle thats just long enough. They have a full pipe organ which is great for processional/recessional and graduated stairs leading up to the stage platform, so it makes it really easy for the wedding party to look great. Usually, you can also hire the church organist when you rent the church, which makes music very easy.

House of Clarendon
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Excellent! Beautiful, affordable cake. Martine was wonderful. He was willing to work on a lower budget but didnt cut corners in the designhe is creative enough that if you give him a price, he will give you a beautiful cake. The cake was all white with one black bandvery strikingand appliqus that looked like the lacy pattern on my dress. Just lovely. He can do just about any flavor combination. The cakes taste is a huge improvement over other wedding cakes I have had. Personally, this was my favorite vendor to work with and the favorite result, too. Hes really creative and will most likely work with you to create as individual a cake as possible.

Carson Wrapped Hershey's
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We purchased military limited edition kisses from Hershey Foods Corp. and wrapped them in tulle (my husband is in the Army) to distribute them as favors. It was greataffordable, matched the military theme of wedding, and low-maintenance. The kisses stayed fresh and people loved them. They carry limited edition kisses in various subjects periodically; you can call the gift shop at Chocolate World to see what they have available at any given time.

Excellent to work with, has very different options for different budgets but all of them are great. Hes creative, and kind when working with families. Very professional. His work is excellent. More expensive packages also feature his wife as a photographer, so you get two, and their work is beautiful.

Dobbin House Tavern
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We stayed in Gettysburg at the Gettystown Inn, part of the Dobbin House Tavern. It was perfect. The furniture is quaint and old-fashioned and the continental breakfast is actually in the tavernand its wonderful! Every morning they have different selections of bread and muffins, as well as coffee and juice and a house-cooked full-course meal with eggs, meat and fruit (cooked differently each day). They advertise on their food, primarily, and it lives up to the reputation! The room was also very nice, and the inn was very quiet and relaxing. The town itself was very relaxed and quiet, since it was winter, and we had a great time exploring the outlets, the movies, and the Boyds Bear factory.

Four Seasons Studio of Hair
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Linda did a beautiful job on my hair! Mines on the shorter side, so I couldnt do an updo, but she curled and arranged mine around the veil. It was beautiful and I got tons of compliments on it. She was also great with working with me before the big day; she did a trial run about a month before to experiment and try different things with the veil. Very accommodating and excellent result.

The Blossom Shop
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Our flowers were beautiful! We used all white flowers, primarily calla lilies, and the Blossom Shop did a great job with the arrangements. My bridal cascade was just gorgeous. Each girl had a single lily, and each was decorated with ribbons. The altar arrangements were lovely and fresh, and stayed that way the whole next week as we enjoyed them at our new place. Karen (the associate that worked with us) met with us two times to discuss possible arrangements and flowers, and was creative with our ideas.
