Lounge Appeal Event Furnishings
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I love Lounge Appeal's funky furniture. Love the Green Apple benches which added a kick of color to my summer wedding. The team was nice whenever I called on the phone and never complained no matter how many times I called to change my order

The Kitchen for Exploring Foods
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I liked the way we were able to pay for the waitstaff ourself with The Kitchen For Exploring Food which at first seemed like a cost effective way to save some cash. However, the final total came out more. Wait, the first sales person also told me one amount of waiters was needed. Then she assigned me to an event manager who added on two more staff members. All the food was cooked fresh onsite which was good and bad. The quality was really fresh but not all of the chicken was grilled the same. Overall, I would use them again. I just will have a better estimate in my head than what they tell me in advance.

Porto's Bakery
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
Our wedding cake completely crumbled when we cut it which was heart breaking. Someone explained that that meant they must have frozen it previously which makes sense since they are such a busy store. The place is a mad house with wedding cake and birthday cake orders. But the price was really good and it was pretty, before we cut it. Oh, and I purchased ribbon for the cake which I dropped off when I placed the order. I took extra just in case. They said they would drop the extra when they deliverd the cake. They forgot. Not a big deal but still if they would have remembered it would have been more impressive.

Center of Attention
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I can't think of any money that I spent on my wedding that was better spent than my wedding planners, Michele and Carrie at Center of Attention. At first I thought they were a bit expensive but when I went throught the process, they negotiated deals that saved me bundles. They even found service providers that were hidden gems I would never have found on my own. They as the date came closer they helped with last minute emergencies like finding a babysitter for one of my bridesmaids. They were there for me every step of the way. Oh, I can't finish the review until I mention how calm they were on the wedding day. They talked softly and were in complete control. I am so happy I found them.
