I was able to purchase a few things from ebay for little cost. Some acceptable, others not so much. My best purchases would probably be the crystal earrings from seller dalfiya and glassine envelopes (for "tears of joy" packets) from arte-crafts. Both vendors were awesome to work with and provided quality product.

I also purchased a flowergirl dress and veil that I was not so pleased with from other sellers. Ebay is a luck of the draw type of purchase... you win some, you lose some. But for the prices, is usually worth trying.

Helen was awesome!!!

From our very first interaction, she was very accommodating and informative. All I had to do was ask, and she took care of the rest without hesitation. She set us up with the best vendors and provided us with exceptional service from start to finish. Our wedding day was more than I could have imagined it to be and our guests have not stopped talking about how impressive everything was.

Thank you Helen!

Excellent place to stay! The rooms are EXACTLY as pictured with a few extra gorgeous views, that you'd have to see for yourself. The pool was always the perfect temp, the jacuzzi (both in room and poolside) were amazingly relaxing. Whenever we needed something (for example none of our remotes worked for the Tv's) the frontdesk had it delievered to our door within minutes.

My only complaint would be with the kitchen staff. Being that my wedding reception was held here, I was provided with a private breakfast buffet for my guests, set to begin at 830. The first day I had to go to the front desk and remind them that my guests were waiting for breakfast, which then took them almost an hour to set up. Needless to say, breakfast was not served on time and ran late.

Then there came the miscommunication with my reception set up. I was asked what time I'd like for dinner to be served and gave a time of 5p . Anytime I've been asked this question when dealing with banquets of other sorts this did not include set up time too. However, when myself and my guests arrived at 430 (1/2 hr after the starting time I said I wanted the space reserved for) which I informed them in advance would be the case, they were still setting up everything INCLUDING the table linen. My guests and I ended up waiting until around 530-6p to get seated and eat. Try explaining that to a bunch of hungry/anxious guests. The food was delicious, which made up for some of the wait... but I would most certainly recommend better order on their end. I dont know if my reception was the first they hosted, as they didnt seem to be a bit unprepared for it.

At the end of it all, everyone truly enjoyed their time. Minus the kitchens hiccups, everything was perfect. I think with a little time, Lake Eve will most certainly be a 5 star all around review.

Paradise Cove
 
( 4.4 / 5.0 )
This was an amazing location!! The scenery is out of this world! I truly felt like I was in a movie when walking down the aisle. Its a natural beauty, that doesn't take much decorating which is a huge plus.

My only complaint would be the bugs. Being that my wedding took place during one of the TWO times of the year that "love bugs" are present, they were everywhere. The sun can also be a killer, so refreshments and fans for your guests, are definitely recommended if at all possible.

Overall, we are truly pleased with our selection of Paradise Cove. We would without a doubt, recommended it to others who are seeking a beautiful outdoor location, at a reasonable cost.

We were very pleased to have had Rev. Glynn officiate our ceremony. He was very friendly, informative and professional. Although 5 minutes before the ceremony was our first meeting, he had a way of making us feel comfortable, as if we'd known each other much longer. My now husband and I, were both pretty nervous, Rev. Glynn took charge and led us through the entire ceremony without hesitation. Thanks for everything!

I purchased silk rose bouquets for my bridesmaids from save-on-crafts and absolutely LOVE THEM! the shipping was quick and the flowers are just as they were displayed online. i can't wait to start decorating them with the ribbon/initial charms I plan to add. I HIGHLY recommend save-on-crafts to any DIY brides looking for quality & inexpensive products.

The only reason I gave this company 2 stars is because of their fast shipping and manager assistance AFTER my long drawn out dispute on the fact that they mailed me ORANGE silk roses when I requested PEACH. Funny thing is after receiving the package, and seeing that they were undoubtedly ORANGE, I went online to check the color peach that was listed & compare to what i had received. Mysteriously, the peach was no longer listed on the website. After contacting a customer service rep via live chat, I was advised that the color peach was out of stock. My assumption, the peach was out of stock when my order was placed, so I was instead shipped ORANGE, a color they thought could possibly be "passed off" for peach. smh. When speaking with the online rep, I explained that the mistake was made by the company and for that reason alone I should not be responsible for return shipping of the product. She humorously offered me the option of keeping the ORANGE roses (that were of no use to me) and receiving a 10% credit as well (what a joke, right?). She even went as far as explaining how the company had in fact, NOT made a mistake, but I should realize their orange and peach roses are just that "similar" to one another in color. The 10% she offered would have been a total of $3.70 being that my order total was only $37 and THAT'S only if they included the shipping cost in that percentage (which I highly doubt they would have). She had to be kidding, right? Anyway, I had to take it as far as contacting a manager via email, to be given a paid return label. I WILL be returning the roses and steering clear of efavormart.com from here on. BUYER BEWARE!
