The owner was really helpful in determining what I needed based on my descriptions. The prices are extremely reasonable. However, they do not deliver outside of Chinatown. It also helps to speak Chinese.

I love this location because the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception can all be in the same location. The cocktail hour is included in the price of the reception and it makes for really easy budgeting because the cost is provided as a per guest cost including the drinks. Contrary to the website, the ceremony can be held on site as well, and they charge for location and chair rentals. The cocktail hour is in one of the exhibits and that's what sold us on the location because of it's orginality.

http://www.totalimagebridal.com/bridal_prices.htm They are probably the cheapest airbrush makeup places you can find in Chicago. I went for a trial and they are really efficient and professional. However, they do not spend that much time to prep you and you have to make sure to put on primer yourself before they put makeup on you.

We are getting DJ service from them and we chose them because of their extensive online planning guide. Some of the other DJsin this price range we were looking at had to send us an actual physical book for us to select songs, for $200 more we were able to do all the planning online and it can be done up to two days before the wedding.

Jewelry by Keith Farley
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Keith Farley at http://artwork-inform.com/ custom designs engagement and wedding bands. He specializes in platinum. It's not that much more expensive than regular jewelers but you know that the ring you have is one of a kind. Wedding bands can also be made to fit to engagement rings and he can make the rings fit together themselves as well. He's really great to work with and the product is amazing. He lives in Kentucky and does most of the work virtually.
