Im giving the Brewers 5 stars because they won their game that my husband went to! Hes a huge Brewers fan, so he loved being able to go to a game with his high school buddies. They have been going to games forever, and I think that over the years I have gone to at least four games a season with my husband. Its probably why he married me! I know that one person bought all the tickets, and that they ate at Rock Bottom Restaurant right before they went to Miller Park. I think they paid for parking because it was a special occasion. My husband loved the game, but I think he remembers it more as a game that the Brewers won rather than his bachelor party.

I had gone here before with my of my best friends when she was looking for a wedding dress, and I just loved the selection. When it was my turn to get a wedding dress, this was the first place I went! I booked an appointment, and my bridesmaids and I drove over and spent a few hours looking at dresses. I knew the style that I wanted, the dress I bought was the second dress I tried on. It was beautiful, all lace, and I loved it! My favorite part was how well the fitting went. They have a really great seamstress team and fitting department, and they took their time to make sure the alterations were perfect. My dress was perfect.

JCrew
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I wanted my bridesmaids dresses to be young and fun looking. I actually wanted them to look like fairies and to wear wings, but everyone told me that was a horrible idea, even my husband! I didnt mind. We went to J Crew, before it became popular by our presidents wife, to look at dresses. They have great dresses, and a great bridal section. We took a tip from one of the sales girls there to look at the online catalogue to see what was on sale. We got our bridesmaids dresses for 75% off! It was a great deal, and the dresses were still the same great quality! Because we had been to the store we knew what sizes J Crew fit each bridesmaids. The dresses they had on sale at the store were also really incredible, the only problem was that we couldnt find three dresses the same. I really suggest looking online at the catalogue after going to the store.

I am giving Broadway Paper five stars because I was able to get so many good ideas for wedding favors and decoration ideas! I went once with my mother, and then the second time with my fianc. It was my fianc and I who finally decided on a certain set, which were a bit more expensive than we wanted to spend but we really liked the impression that the cards would give. The quality is great, and there are so many different ways to customize the cards. I really loved the owner being there to offer us advice, too. You can tell the people who work there love what they do.

Stein's Jewelers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had been wearing a promise engagement ring that Drew had given me since our second year of college, and I loved it, but I was really excited when Drew gave me my engagement ring! It was exactly what I wanted! We had gone to Steins a few times before to look at rings, and I had pointed to a really beautiful ring from the Diana collection that I loved. I tried it on, and I decided that it was the ring I wanted but because it was so expensive, I didnt have any expectations. I would have been happy with any ring that Drew gave me. He saved for a year to buy me the ring! I was so touched! We got our wedding bands there, too, which was a much easier choice for both of us. Simple bands, no diamonds, though my ring is in white gold an Drew wanted yellow gold.

Express - Mayfair Mall
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I think Express is a fun shop, and they do sell lots of cute dresses! The best part of getting married is that you get to buy dresses for so many different occasions, like the bridal shower and the rehearsal dinner. I bought my rehearsal dinner dress here. It was cute, simple, and short but tasteful. Their prices are a bit expensive, but they also often have great sales. I bought my dress right after Christmas, and I got it for almost 50% off. Some of the clothes may seem over trendy, but they do have some nice fashionable outfits, you just need to look for them.

Bestway Limousine, LLC
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This was the best price that I could find for a limousine. Drew and I would have been happy showing up in our Subaru, if our mothers would have let us. Everyone insisted that we arrive in a limo, so we did. We ordered it only from the church to the hotel, which still gave us some time to drive around town to have some pictures taken. Our driver was really nice, and the limousine was nice! It was more comfortable traveling in a limo than traveling in a car!

Karl Ratzsch's
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This is a really cute restaurant, really unique looking. The first time I went there I thought we had gone to Snow Whites house! We wanted to have a really nice family dinner together before the wedding, and because my family is so big we decided that it would be easier to go to a restaurant. The funny thing is that Karl Ratzschs is the same restaurant we went to right before my aunt got married a year before! We booked a room, the Troubadour Room, which was really beautiful and a perfect size for us, because we were 22 people with Drews family. The menu was good, lots of tasty meat and European dishes. I loved the food, even though it is very rich. The desserts are the best part, too.
