After Hours (Rock Hill)
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Their consultants help and expertise allowed this portion of wedding planning to be stress-free. After choosing from their great selection of styles and colors, the men were able to order, pick up and return their tuxes to any Afterhours location. Since all of the men were from out of state and several cities, this made it most convient for them all.

I visited Poffie Girls in my early shopping for a dress. I then visited 6 other stores. I can honestly say that the customer service at Poffies is second to none. They are friendly, knowledgeable, offer a large selection, competitive prices, and a great selection of bridesmaid dresses and MOB dresses. They also have a large array of accessories for sale. They help you find a dress within your budget and dont try to pressure you into something you cant afford. I highly recommend a lady their named Elaine. She has been in the business a long time and was fun, honest, accommodating, and had a wealth of knowledge on wedding attire. Make your visit productive by making an appointment ahead of time and take your mom or another person with you. I also ordered my invitations and thank you cards from Poffies. They offer a discount if you purchase your dress there. They have many books for you to browse through and an excellent staff to guide you through the process. They send you a proof before the final printing. They arrived on the date promised and were beautiful. Their prices were comparable to other invitation providers.

JCrew
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I used J.Crew which was convenient for my wedding party since they were all located in different cities and states. I picked out a dress and emailed a picture of it to them for their comments and approval. J. Crew provided me with fabric samples that I could pass on to the florists, caterer, etc. The special wedding consultant there gave great service. She was a fantastic communicator, make follow up calls to me and the girls and made me feel very confident that all the ordering was taken care of. Sizes were easy to exchange and the price was reasonable. The styles also make the dresses appropriate for after-wedding wear. They arrived boxed neatly and correctly and they looked great on the girls.

Simply Stated made my save-the-dates and they came out AMAZING. We were so happy we went with a local company. She worked closely with us and customized all our wedding collateral to match.

Fort Mill Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Fun, creative, professional, flexible are just a few words to describe this studio and the staff. They provided two photographers when others provide only one. Both of the photographers were most talented and took creative shots as well as the traditional ones. They were easy to pre-plan with and most helpful on the wedding day. The whole wedding party enjoyed their enthusiasm and involvement in creating fun in the process. Great creativity showed in the Storybook of pictures, video, etc. They sincerely want to make your memories last forever. The on-line viewing is great as well as the on-line ordering option for all to place their own orders. They have a great website.

Gala Affairs
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I was pleased with the extra chairs and candelabras that I rented at Gala Affairs. The selection is somewhat slim and seems to go fast, so you must plan far in advance.

The Magnolia Room is a beautiful room with traditional dcor. It provided lots of space for 250 people all seated at tables and we still had a nice setting for the cake and even a childrens table. There was ample space for the D.J. and for the dance floor. The restrooms are beautiful as is the bar and the area around it. There is a dressing area for the bride and an impressive entrance hallway, a great place for favors and gifts. The grounds around the building are well maintained and beautiful. There is ample parking all around the building. Lisa, the social coordinator was great to work with and offered great set-up ideas. All the guests were impressed by the wonderful atmosphere the room provided for the reception venue. They were very flexible with us on set up times. Ask for Lisa, she was awesome!

Melanie Rowe Catering
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Melanie was very easy to work with and very flexible during the planning process. She offers sampling of her menu items and invites you to view other events she services prior to your date so you can see different set-ups, etc. Guests enjoyed the food and her staff was most professional in their dress and service skills. I rented the linens, tables, etc. through Melanie and it was all delivered and set up in a timely manner. Her staff packed up all of the left-over food in boxes for us to take home. They left the kitchen of the Magnolia Room spotless. She also took care of hiring the bartenders for me. Melanie helps you maximize your food to fit the budget you are working within and lets you give a final head count just ten days prior to the event date. She has great ideas and great vision for your event. The chicken quesadllias right off the grill were great! Lots of compliments on the true southern lemonade.

Ella Knox is an artist in addition to a talented baker. She has books of pictures you can browse or you can take her pictures of your ideas. She will help you incorporate your ideas and she has great suggestions. She offers a tasting session which really helps you decide what you want. I can tell you that the Kentucky Butter Cake is delicious and was enjoyed by our 250 guests. It was moist, easy to cut, beautifully decorated as planned, delivered on time, the presentation was impressive and she arranged the fresh flowers on it. Ella made the grooms cake which was chocolate and delicious. She also offers sheet cakes made just like the wedding cake for additional servings which saves on the cost.

Williams Entertainment
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Donald Williams is a teacher and most easy to work with. I met him at a bridal fair and received a discount because of that meeting. He is easy to pre-plan with and plays exactly what you have provided on your request sheet. He will do as much or as little as you desire. He will come appropriately dressed and be most professional in his performance. He announced our wedding party when they arrived at the reception, the cake cutting, leaving of the bride and groom, etc. He required a down payment for the date and then the balance at the close of the evening.

The owner, Maria is very nice and goes out of her way to service you most professionally. I tried on numerous gowns and bridesmaid dresses there.

I also purchased small wedding accessories there like garter, purse, gown hanger, etc. You need to phone ahead for hours and for an appointment. She had some great prices and a good selection of gowns on sale. She had a large assortment of bridesmaid dresses
