Knapp Street Reformed Church
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Knapp Street Church is a good site for a fairly intimate wedding (150 people). It is located centrally, being just off the East Beltline, but is not so small that it is cramped. They were very welcoming to us having our own pastor from East Lansing come out for the ceremony as well. They weren't all that used to having weddings there, and really had no clear contract or paperwork, but were very friendly and flexible.

Mary Briggs Cakes
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Mary is another vendor that does the work out of her home. However, do not let that influence your perception of her professionalism. She was amazing to work with and did not charge all the additional fees that some bakeries are tacking on (a fee for extra designs, extra flavors, placing the flowers, etc.). She has an amazing photo album of the cakes she has done.

Papermart.com
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I ordered small boxes with lids and my place cards from papermart and their prices could not be beat for these two items! I looked everywhere and they had cute options that did not look extremely inexpensive (ie. were not just plain white). The boxes i ordered are pale yellow and have little cream polka dots. The orders were delivered extremely promptly as well (in about 8 days!).

Davids Bridal
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I bought my dress from the David's in East Lansing, MI and it was a great experience. I went back around 5 times and at each appointment they were very helpful. They have such a great selection and can order and receive the dresses in such a timely fashion that it really took all the stress out of it. I tried on dozens of dresses I hated before I found the one I loved and They were not impatient with me at all!! I also got my bridesmaid dresses there and it is nice to have a place with locations all over! My girls in different cities didn't even have to travel.

John R. Ziemann Photography
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
John was very affordable for what you receive. All the people we looked into were around the same price but he was slightly cheaper and provided more for your money. He included an engagement photo session and that was a nice plus. Additionally, his style is a nice mix of traditional and more artistic.

( 4.0 / 5.0 )
She is amazing. She has been doing this out of her home office for 20 years and is familiar with nearly every reception site in the greater Grand Rapids area, so she has a great vision and great ideas. She also types up an itemized quote for you during your first meeting that you can then review. She was very very competent!
