Here Comes the Bridesmaid
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The girls were very sweet, and they had a huge assortment of dresses to look through. The prices in store vary from the prices on their website. They agreed to honor the website price though, so have your Blackberry handy to show them! We easily saved $50 off of the lowest prices we found for Dessy After Six dresses. My bridesmaids were thrilled with the color, cut, and style, and they arrived in plenty of time for alterations.

Alterations by Reina
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Reina saved the day! My previous alterations person messed up part of my dress. She managed to fix it, perfectly, and take it in more within three days. Just in time for the wedding! And the cost was so reasonable. I couldn't be more grateful to her.

Kristin is amazing at what she does. My invitations were custom designed from top to bottom, and my guests were so impressed! She even did our place cards and thank you cards with the skyline theme. I love letterpress, and she has the best prices by far.

William is the only person I trust to cut my hair, so of course I wanted him to make my bridal party gorgeous. He did everyone's hair; Jessica did our makeup including individual lashes. Everything went perfectly on schedule, and everyone looked stunning! The hair and makeup lasted all night, looked very natural yet striking in pictures. We hardly needed to touch up. And I can't believe how great his prices were! I wish I hadn't wasted so much money on trials with "bridal specialists." William works on photo shoots and with magazines, and he knew exactly what we wanted. DEFINITELY give him a call!

Terra Flowers did all of our personals and they gave me EXACTLY what I wanted. The flowers were flawless and I was pleased with pricing. Heidi even tied on the little bouquet charms I'd bought for each girl. I was so happy she included a toss bouquet, because I was in LOVE with mine. She responded promptly to calls and emails, even last minute changes.

I'm in love with Marty and Kenya. They're the sweetest people in the world. My husband has worked in film production, so he did all the research here. Marty was so professional and impressed us, which is hard to do. They knew our priority was photography and stayed out of the way -- while always being there for the key moments. We're DYING to see what they captured. Our friends have begged us to host a screening party when the DVD comes in!

Prompt, professional, perfect. We rented two limos to get there, one on the way back. We asked for one Excursion and one regular, but the second limo was upgraded to an Excursion as well. The ride flew by! Our driver Bartolo was the coolest. Our dads loved him!

Tara and her team had the tough job of setting up the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception within 2 hours. I can't imagine! I gave her really detailed instructions and timelines and she followed everything perfectly. I wish we had a little bit more attention during the dinner, but she was busy taking care of other stuff. Her prices were AMAZING for the services she provided.

Meeting Lily first was one of the best decisions of this wedding. She really did make my dreams come true. I wanted square, simple, elegant. She went above and beyond. She suggested a silver intial, the turquoise ribbon... ahhh! Everyone stopped and stared when they saw it. And then their jaws dropped at the groom's cake! I wanted a black t-shirt with his favorite band's logo on it, and it was EXACTLY the same as the picture I sent her. (He absolutely flipped out when he saw it!) I'm so glad Lily was setting it up in person because we just HAD to hug her! Our wedding cake was vanilla rum with dulce de leche filling and chocolate kahlua with hazelnut filling. It was so ridiculously to die for, people were stealing pieces off of other tables! The groom's cake was red velvet with cream cheese filling and he was in cake heaven. Her fondant was delish. Neither of us ate from the other desserts (except in pictures!) -- no chocolate fountain, no candy buffet, nothing but cake. Even now, back from honeymoon, we're still eating vanilla rum cake and it's just as good as the day we cut it. Awww. I will gladly order all my special events cakes from her and hand-carry them back to NY from now on.

UBIS MUSIC & LIGHTING
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
We had a really detailed intro script and an unusual playlist, and they accommodated both. The DJ was able to read the crowd well and played a good mix of music. The uplighting is stunning in the Biscayne Room.
