Jin Wang
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had ordered my dress from Jin Wang and the bridal consultants there were so helpful in helping me selecting my wedding dress. I've always been a fan of Jin Wang so I was almost sure of what dress I wanted before going there! They had a few fittings to make sure the dress fit perfectly and really worked with me to keep me within my budget!! Highly recommended!

Hakone Estate and Gardens
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I attended a wedding this past weekend at Hakone Gardens and the Japanese garden was wonderful! What a great place to get married and you don't have to walk far to get amazing scenary for photos! They had the ceremony at 5 pm which is after the park closed to the public so we had the whole place to ourselves! Dinner was also served outdoors and the weather couldn't have been nicer! I recommend to checkout this venue to any upcoming bride!

Hotel Vitale
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Hotel Vitale was a great place to get married. We only did our getting ready shot in the hotel room and lobby area but what a sleek chic hotel it is in SF! What more can you ask for? It's so close to everything and the people at the hotel couldn't have been nicer! I'm not sure how the ceremony and reception place looks like though! Loved the lobby for pictures, very contemporary!

IKEA
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
IKEA offers the best for a large wedding for brides on a budget! They have great selection for centerpieces especially vases and clear marbles ($1 / jar). I ended up creating my own centerpiece from IKEA parts and they were amazing. We used some Cala Lillies along with floating candles. Best part was, any extras that we didn't up using, we brought back. The people there were knowledgeable too so it must be quite a common practice.

Modern Bridal Faires
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
The is one of the biggest bridal shows in the Bay Area, but I would only rate it as OK. I got to talk to a few vendors there but ended up selecting most of my vendors by using project-wedding and through friend's recommendation. It was easy to get lost in the fury of all of the booths! It was good to get ideas though. Maybe I'm just not a bridal show type of bride.

Vincent Au Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I was completely blown away from the pictures that Vincent and his team photographers provided for our wedding day. There was never a moment that wasn't captured on his camera and he caught so many of our laughters, tears, smiles and emotions. When we saw the pictures, all we could say was WOW. Some pictures brought tears to my eyes. His style was completely what we were looking for in a wedding photographer. Very candid, very photo journalistic and very professional. Both my fiance and I were a little camera shy and Vince made sure that we felt completely comfortable during our wedding day. Probably because of his HUGE lenses, he could stand further away and capture us when we are most natural and sometimes I didn't even know he was even taking pictures of us! He was also great in capturing all the details that were part of our wedding from the rings to the venue, flowers and invitations etc. We planned our wedding to the very last detail and I'm so happy that we'll be able to remember it for years to come. Vince was also very professional and always took the time to answer all my questions. He's extremely quick in replying to emails. Thanks again to Vince and Vincent Au Photography for capturing every memory of our wedding day. I highly recommend him as a wedding photographer for any brides-to-be! We couldn't have imagined having anyone else capture our wedding day.

Steppin' Out Productions
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We went to stepping out to learn out first dance and had a great experience. They helped us pick out a song and taught us all the steps to really stand out on our wedding day!!! We couldn't be more happy! They even went out of their way to open up the studio early on a Sunday morning so that we could practice to our music and have the whole dance floor to ourselves!!

Sax Fifth Ave.
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I got my wedding dress custom made in Hong Kong, however, for the final fitting I brought it to Saks Fifth. The bridal service there was superb! Even though I did not buy my dress at Saks, they spent a lot of time going through my final fitting and made all the alternations. I could not be any happier. I would highly recommend them for any wedding (groom or bride) alterations.

Paper Source - San Francisco Marina
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Got a few things there for my invitations and place cards, but I found that there were other less commercial (more industrial) places that would sell a similar paper type for less. Great when you don't have time or just looking for ideas.

( 4.0 / 5.0 )
They have the best prices if you happen not to be too picky on the color and goto their clearance section. I find that if you check back often and get to know the sales people more, they are willing to help lookout for certain colors and stuff for you. Great shipping rates as well as others have listed.
