Carriage House Weddings
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I knew most of the dresses at this shop were probably out of my price range, but I also figured it didn't hurt to at least look. I had heard great things about Carriage House so my maid of honor and I went to look. They have the most gorgeous selection of upscale gowns that I have ever seen. I tried on a Monique Lhullier gown that I would've given my right arm for, but it was way out of my budget. However, the staff was very friendly and accommodating even though I didn't end up purchasing my gown there.

Sha Salon & Spa
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Awesome, awesome, awesome. I have bounced around from salon to salon trying to find a good stylist and have always had the same problem with telling them one thing that I want, and then they ignore it and do another. Not this place. I brought in a picture a few weeks ahead of time of how I wanted my hair cut and colored and they replicated it exactly like the picture. I will continue to go back for my hair and any other services that I need!

Laura Mercier - Birmingham
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I didn't want to spend a whole bunch of money on a makeup artist only to end up hating my makeup. I went a few weeks ahead of time for a consultation and had my makeup done right at the counter. The girl who worked with me (I can't remember her name for the life of me!) showed me how to do several different looks, so I could do something different for the rehearsal dinner, the wedding and even every day. I loved the makeup and ended up buying almost everything she used on me! It is kind of pricey makeup though...

Silver Leaf Luxury Limousine
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We hired Silver Leaf to get us from the hotel, to the ceremony, from the ceremony to the reception and from the reception back to the hotel. They were prompt, courteous and reliable. The cars were very well kept and the drivers were very helpful with getting me and my bridal party in and out of the vehicles in our gowns. We are planning to use them again for a friend's bachelorette party coming up!

Agnew Jewelers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I absolutely LOVE my Natalie K engagement ring. My husband said he had no idea what he was doing when he went to pick out the ring and the staff at Agnew's did a great job asking him what I was like to help him choose a ring that would suit me and my style. He had such a great experience that that we came back to select our wedding bands and will continue to use them as our jewelers.

Mr. Burch Formal Wear
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband was a very hands on groom and said he would have no problem taking care of ordering the tuxes for him and his groomsmen. He took a swatch of the bridesmaids dress fabric in to use to help determine what tux would look best. The salesmen at the shop must have done a great job helping him because I was very happy with how my husband and the groomsmen looked at the wedding. The colors matched the dresses perfectly and the guys looked so handsome!

Coleman's Bridal Shop
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I let my maid of honor and bridesmaids collaborate and decide on which dress they wanted to wear. I just gave them some color and style guidelines and they went into a Coleman's with them and tried on about every dress in the store! lol Luckily, they said the staff was understanding and helpful in choosing a dress that worked for all of their body types. In the end, they chose an Impressions Bridal dress that I was very happy with!

Hilton Birmingham Perimeter Park
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Great place to have a block of rooms held for your out of town guests. Their rates are very reasonable and their rooms are clean and more upscale than a lot of hotels with comparable rates. The location was also great in reference to where the wedding was held so the out of town guests didn't have to worry about getting lost.

Toppers With Glitz
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We had a very simple cake, so we needed something to dress it up a bit. I didn't want the typical cheesy bride and groom cake topper and wasn't sure what my other options were. I came across Toppers with Glitz in a google search and had a great experience with them. I had a ton of compliments on how different my cake topper was and no one had ever seen one like it before!

Amazing Sounds Professional DJ Service
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Scott and his wife did a great job at our wedding. My husband and I had seen them at one of our friend's weddings and were impressed with their professionalism and how they handled our friend's wedding. Their pricing is very comparable to other DJs in the area. They have great quality equipment and kept the flow of the wedding going really well.

Glenn's Flowers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Glenn came highly recommended through another bride who I met at a bridal show. She had already been married and used him for her decorations as well as bouquets and had a great experience. She was absolutely right, he was wonderful. I gave him an idea of what colors I wanted to use and he was able to design beautiful arrangements with flowers that were in season so they didn't cost a fortune.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I definitely wanted to have our place cards done in elegant calligraphy but couldn't find anyone in our area that I was real impressed with. We were going to have our invitations and everything done through Laura, but the costs added up really quickly! We were very happy with just having the place cards done though. They looked great and the turnaround time was very reasonable!

Martha's Tailoring
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I lost more weight than I expected to before my wedding and needed even more alterations done last minute than I thought I would need. Martha was great at accommodating my last minute crisis and I ended up with my dress fitting me like a glove. My bridesmaids also had their gowns done here and were thrilled with the fit. I would highly recommend Martha's Tailoring for your alterations needs.
