Athena's Bridal Boutique
We got my wedding gown, all the dresses for my Maids of Honor and Bridesmaids, and for our mothers at Athena's Bridal. Our experiences overall was just fantastic! The atmosphere is very light and easy yet professional, and the sales girls were sweet. They have a nice variety of dresses and gowns to peruse through, and once I found my dress, we all knew it was the one as everyone had tears in their eyes (and I hadn't even tried it on yet!) Athena's Bridal is just amazing!

Michele and her girls are absolutely wonderful and just so sweet... We absolutely adored each of them and enjoyed their company while they made us all beautiful! Not only are the so sweet, but our makeup and hair turned out perfect! We love to dance, so my concern that I addressed with Michele from the beginning was to have our hair stay perfect throughout the night, which they did successfully! Plus, our makeup was still flawless at the end!

I would have given Safety Harbor all their stars, but they just did not deliver 100% for our wedding. First, the Banquet Captain we had been communicating all our plans with was not who we ended up with on our wedding. The Banquet Captain that was present was completely rude, not attentive, and there were several problems that arose that my coordinator had to take care of without the Captain's assistance. Safety Harbor Resort is lovely and wonderful, I just hope that if you are looking at this place you don't get stuck with who we had to endure non-existent service from!

Debbie was a complete doll to work with! She completely understood my vision, and worked within my budget to deliver all the flowers that I had dreamed about! We were even able to go the day before to make sure everything looked perfect, and they did! I absolutely recommend The Bride's Bouquet to anyone and everyone!

Brian C Idocks Photographics, LLC
Brian C. Idocks is the man! We had so much fun working with him during our engagement photo session, and were amazed when we got those proofs. We were so excited to see what he would give us for our wedding, and we weren't disappointed! I want to give him like 100 stars! His work is absolutely amazing and impeccable! He captured our day absolutely perfectly! I am very proud of our wedding pictures and will forever treasure them!

I do NOT recommend this company at all! We didn't use them on our wedding day, but to transport us the next day from the hotel to the airport for our honeymoon. First, the driver gets sent to the completely WRONG hotel at the opposite side of town! Because of that and the time that we requested to be picked up, the driver finally showed up almost an hour and a half LATE! Then when the driver finally arrived, he was rude to us in explaining his situation, from inside the car with the window rolled down to talk to us! He then proceeded to get on his cell phone and talk to whomever while we waited almost 10 minutes to see if he would put our suitcases in the trunk. He did NOT, and when the valet/concierge saw this, they sweetly put our stuff in for us instead of the driver. When we get in the car (he didn't even open the door for us as he was still talking in the front - the sweet valet/concierge did that for us too!), we smelled alcohol REAKING in the car! YUCK! I almost wanted to tell my husband to just get out and we would take a taxi, but we were running late already for our flight! BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!!!!

We had a pianist for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and they did beautifully! I love how the piano sounds, and definitely wanted the music for my ceremony and cocktail hour to be by the piano, and Breezin' Entertainment was perfect! No complaints from us!

Thanks to our DJ, Doug, our guests had an amazing time! He did a great job getting everyone on the floor, and keeping them there! He played all the songs that we asked him to, and kept the timing for our schedule perfectly as well! We had such a blast!

Alterations by Daisy Penaranda
Daisy is absolutely amazing! She is so sweet, and her prices are unbelievable! Several other brides recommended that I look at Daisy for alterations, and I'm glad that I did (she altered my dress, as well as my mom's).
