Candi made me a gorgeous veil for MUCH less than the one I saw in the bridal salon. The veil I fell in love with in the salon was over $200. Candi made a replica for $35! She is the nicest lady and was a joy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend her to all brides.

I'm a CA bride who called Mestad's to inquire about ordering my Amsale bridesmaid's dresses from their store. (I didn't want to pay CA sales tax, which had just been raised to almost 9%.) Not only did I not have to pay tax, but Mestad's had the dresses for $50 less than my local bridal salon. I worked with Grace and she was great! My girls just had to call in with their measurements and Grace took care of everything else. Shipping was $16, which wasn't bad considering we saved about $80 on each dress. The dresses came in really early and in perfect condition!

Stacy Lande Makeup
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Stacy did my makeup for my pinup pictures (I used Iconic Pinups) and she did an awesome job. I've had my makeup done many times, and Stacy did one of the best applications I've ever experienced. My eyes and eyebrows are my "problem" areas and she made them both look PERFECT. She's super nice and it was a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend her!

wedding alterations by Mahtab
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I just picked up my dress from Mahtab and I'm so glad I used her. She was really nice to work with and she did an amazing job on my dress. She made it fit like it was made just for me. She was initially going to just hem it, add a bustle, and shorten the straps. After my second fitting, she saw that some of the fabric on the waist area was bunching up and was able to fix that by my final fitting. She didn't even charge me extra for this fix, even though it wasn't included in the original quote. I highly recommend her!

Katie was fantastic! She did my hair and makeup for my engagement pictures and wedding day. She also did hair and makeup for my two bridesmaids, my mom and MIL. Everyone loved working with her and her assistant. They both did an excellent job. Everyone loved their hair and makeup. Katie was on time and stayed on schedule on the wedding day. Our hair and makeup lasted all day and night. I got lots of compliments, as did my girls. During the planning process, I changed my mind about my makeup after my first trial and Katie fit me in for a second trial just a few days before my wedding. She is the nicest person and is great at what she does. I highly recommend her!

Bella Blooms
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Leanna Henry at Bella Blooms rocked my wedding flowers. Seriously. =) I had pretty specific ideas about the overall look and colors I wanted, but I'm not creative at all and had a hard time thinking of actual designs for the flowers. I met with two other well-known florists, but Leanna was the only one who came up with fantastic ideas that fit my vision for the wedding perfectly. In addition to having the best ideas, Leanna worked with my budget and gave me the lowest quote. I changed my mind about several things during the planning process, but Leanna was super patient and changed my contract multiple times. My bouquet turned out exactly how I wanted it, despite not being able to order peonies for it (they weren't in season). Leanna managed to put together an amazing bouquet with other types of flowers that still maintained the "peony look" I really wanted. She delivered all the flowers on time to two different locations on the wedding day. I loved working with Leanna and couldn't be happier with my wedding flowers. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Bella Blooms!!!

Chiavari Chairs 4 Rent
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This company is awesome! It was my dream to have silver chiavari chairs at my wedding but I thought they were way out of my budget until I found Chiavari Chairs 4 Rent. They were great to work with...very accomodating and professional to the very end. They were on time for both set up and delivery on the wedding day. My reception looked so classy thanks to their chairs. Not only is their service top-notch, but they offer fantastic prices!
