If you are working on a low to moderate budget it is great. They have a large selection of colors, designs, and sizes. On the other hand, you get the service you pay for. It was almost always packed when I went in....there were kids running around and I even saw men a couple of times in the fitting area. My bridesmaids had there shoes died there and that was a disaster. One of my bridesmaids went to pick up her shoes that were supposed to have been ready 2 days earlier and they went to the back to get them and the lady handed them to her still wet with dye. When she picked up the shoe the dye was all over her hands and the color didnt match. She had to have them re-done and luckily they were finished just in time. They are horrible if you want o return something. I had bought a sample sash for color comparison and went to return it never used just one day after their 90 day policy and they didnt even make an effort to help me. All I wanted was store credit and they would not work with me at all. Overall, I think they were ok, but if you are looking for the one on one time and in my opinion better service I would recommend Alfred Angelo.

Extremely nice and helpful. We had 6 groomsmen and not a single one had a problem. They offer a lot of different discounts to help the budget. They even work with out of town party members. You can have your measurements done at another location and have it sent to the one where they pick the tux up at or they even take measurements over the phone. They work with you to coordinate all your wedding colors.

We picked up my engagement ring here and the quality, service, and merchandise was nothing but excellent. They have a huge selection for every budget. The service is just right...they are not overbearing if you just want to go in and look but if you have a question or want to try something on they are right there to assist for the entire process. We went to several jewelers and they definitely had the best selection.

We had our wedding on a Sunday and they were still very accommodating. The church staff allowed full rein of all the rooms for us to get ready in. We had a harpist and flutist come and play and they moved their instruments to make room for them. We also were allowed use of the gym for mini cupcake reception immediately following the ceremony. It was recently remodeled so it looks good in pictures.

This was one of the best decisions we made. She was there the entire day of the wedding from getting ready at11am till the party ended at 12am. She was able to capture every moment. We got a great deal on our package and she worked with us on what options we wanted. She took our engagement photos, bridal photos, and the wedding day. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality of photos she does. She was very personable and was there when I needed and listened to what we wanted. I don't think you could find a better photographer for the money.

The venue was beautiful and the event coordinator there was there where we needed her and was very accommodating. We had specific requests such as hanging our own lanterns in the trees and they allowed us to do that. They also allowed us to come in extra early to set up. My husband also got a free round of golf and a discount for the wedding party. On the other hand...the food was not up to my expectations for the price and you have to use them as the caterer. Overall I was very happy with the choice of having our wedding reception there.

This was the store we used to find our invitations. They have a huge selection of invitations, ranging from classic to modern and for all budgets. They took the time to help us word the invitations and made sure they everything was correct before placing the order. It small store, I believe owner operated and everyone is extremely nice and helpful. The store also has a lot of other things besides invitations... I found some of my bridesmaid gifts there.
