Oh my gosh, I do not know how to put into words how much I loved all of my flowers!! I went to Debra with my vision of a glamorous wedding with lots of pink. I wanted to copy the concept of the TV show Platinum Weddings, of course without spending the big bucks. Debra and I clicked immediately and I left our first meeting gushing about her for days. She knew exactly what I wanted and even better she could do it on my budget! When I finally saw all of the centerpieces and bouquets at the wedding I was blown away! Honestly, I had faith that she would make my wedding beautiful but she far exceeded what I ever could have imagined!! Everyone throughout the evening was approaching Walter and I making comments on the floral decor. The whole week on my honeymoon I kept thinking about how I wish I could have brought my flowers with me to be able to enjoy. ( Cheesy , I know ) ** I wanted to make sure that the girls bouquets stood out and were not too small. I paid $15 more per bouquet to make them larger and it was so worth it!!

Thomas Alan
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Thomas has been a pleasure to work with! For the past year he has been very quick in repsonding back to any questions I had from email. My DH who tends to be tough on vendors was convinced he wanted Thomas within 5 minutes of our initial meeting :) He is very personable and I had several guests and members of the wedding party make comments on how much they liked him. Our wedding pictures are absolutely beautiful and we have a hard time choosing the perfect ones for our album. I definitely plan to use Thomas in the future for other events in our life.

Jay is such a pleasure to work with. He came highly recommended from the other girls on the CFL board and I knew before meeting him that he was the perfect person for us. He is so professional but yet when you talk to him it seems like you've known him for years. He always has a smile on his face and is more than willing to accommodate his bride and groom in any way to make them happy. Walter and I were outside during cocktail hour taking pictures with Thomas and Jay approached us and asked us what we would like to drink. We were so impressed that he did that for us! He did such a wonderful job throughout the evening. He is great at reading the crowd to decide on the music to keep everyone dancing! Walter and I have already started talking about how we should host another event just so we can hire him

For our wedding party we rented 8 tuxedos and the overall experience was mixed. The majority of the guys shirts were too tight after correct measurements were given. The staff was very pleasant to work with every time we went into the store but they did lack on follow-up skills. After the wedding Dave the manager was extremely helpful in contacting us to let us know that Walter left his checkbook in the pocket and let us know that he had it set aside in his office for us. I'm not sure that we would use their service again.

Magic Occasions Catering

Our wedding cake was beautiful! I personally think that I can be hard to work with at times because I am so indecisive but Angie and Joanne were both so patient with me. They are so easy to work with. At first I was convinced that I wanted fondant but then Ashlie my DOC told me about how Joanne and Angie do such a good job with butter cream that it could pass as fondant. Also she mentioned that their cakes taste delicious!! Ashlie was right about both! I ended up with the most beautiful cake and I did not have to spend a premium price on it just to have fondant. I surprised Walter with a cigar box groom's cake and at first everyone thought that it was real because Magic Occasions did such a good job on it. I was soooo excited for months about the grooms cake because we met at his favorite cigar bar and I just thought that this was the perfect way to symbolize that. The grooms cake was made out of fondant so it was more per slice but there is not doubt that it was worth every penny!

Veronica's Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I loved my dress by Piccione!! The women at Veronica's are so nice to work with. Brandy and Cathy were the main two women I worked with and they were so helpful each time I came in. The alterations were done in a timely manner and I feel that I paid a fair price for the dress and the alterations.

I had a fantastic experience with Chrissy O's. I researched the Bill Levkoff dress on several bridal websites and Chrissy O's had the best price. I also had heard from girls on other boards that they had a good reputation. The dresses ended up coming in a month before the estimated date and I saved each girl over $80 off the retail price.

Patricia is great to work with! Because we had a lot of girls needing makeup she brought along Christy who is a makeup artist with her to do all of the makeup. All of my girls loved their hair and the makeup! At the hair and makeup trial Patricia was very patient with me and suggested ideas that she thought would work. The day of the wedding I decided to switch things up a bit from the way my hair was at the trial and Patricia was more than willing to accommodate. Both Christy and Patricia are so personable and really make having the hair and makeup done an enjoyable experience.
