Ultra 88 Night Club
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
There might have been ten different bachelorette parties happening at the same time in the club. There were some sketchy older men, but for the most part it was hords of bachelorette party goers. Several of them were passing out on the only seating areas in the club which are VIP only. The only way to get a rest is to sit by the bathrooms. It was fairly expensive to enter the club, and we ended up spending the night at a local hotel to save money. We did eat at Johnny Rockets late in the evening and enjoyed each others company there.

Davids Bridal
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Davids bridal was a little more expensive than I wanted for bridesmaid dresses, but it was the easiest way to get my bridesmaids the same color dress across several state lines. Make sure to have an appointment because weekends are so chaotic that you might be unable to try on dresses. It was nice that they had several dress styles in the same color I was looking for. Unfortunately some of them take months to come in once they are ordered. Be wary of ordering a size too large or small, alterations are very costly.

It was a little overwhelming at first walking in, but the way the expo was separated by vendors made it a lot easier to navigate. I would definitely take a notebook and a pen to jot down as much information as possible from each vendor and then go back and sit down at my leisure to see what it was I needed. I ended up getting a lot of emails, I would have signed up for less information had I known how flooded my inbox was going to get. Overall it was great to have all the CT vendors in one location. I got several ideas of what I did and did not want at my wedding.

Modern Pastry Shop
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My father and I went to a cake tasting here and it was delicious. They were very patient with us because I had to go back several times to finally decide on a flavor (several layers with different flavors) and design. It was a little pricey at $3 per serving, but they were very accommodating and suggested I have the wedding cake a smaller size and supplement the extra servings with a sheet cake which looks the same once it is cut up and is only $1 per serving. They folks were very helpful and eager to help me, the bride, get exactly what I wanted.

Audibert's Catering
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The owners of the Fernwood Restaurant themselves to the catering. They met with me and went over every detail of the reception to make sure they met all my needs. I went with the BBQ style buffet menu which had a fairly comparable price at $12.50 per serving. They are sometimes a little difficult to reach, but always return phone calls when you leave a message. Calling is better than emailing. They knew my reception site very well already and helped me in the layout of the tables.

Taylor Rental
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The rental agreement was easy. Unfortunately we have to figure out how to transport everything ourselves. But on the plus side, it was easy to find everything we needed from tables, chairs, glasses, and a dance floor all in one place. Their prices are relatively the same or less than other places I was searching. They also had a tent rental, but I just went with the venues higher priced rental for the convenience of not having to deal with transporting and setting it up and the costs associated with that.
