Christ United Methodist Church
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is my fathers church, and we chose this church because we really liked Steve Dodson, who was the lead pastor at the time, and Toni, who helped us plan the ceremony part of the wedding. They were so welcoming and so supportive, and they also took time to remind us that it was a marriage and not just a wedding. I liked that they werent so overtly forceful with their message, which isnt always the case when you want to get married at a church.

Unique Boutique & Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is a really small store and you might feel underwhelmed when you get in, but then you realize that the people who work here really know a lot about wedding dresses. They know whats in style, different designers that make the same style of dress, and they can help you pick something that suits your body. They helped me pick out a dress that I had to order in, but it was so beautiful. I am happy I trusted them.

Claire Ellers' Fine Jewelry
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband said that he picked this store as the place to get my engagement ring because he liked how nice the inside of the store was. I was impressed. I had only been inside chain jewelry stores, so I thought they would try to rip us off, but I think they were even better than a chain store. They totally gave us a great price and the ring and wedding bands were so beautiful.

Shara's Paperie Studio
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
She has the most beautiful collection of wedding card invitations, envelopes, baby shower cards, cards for almost all occasions! It was so hard for me to focus in that store! I fell in love with everything. I think we also got a good price and deal on the invitations we chose. My husband and I had made our own save-the-date cards, and I know it takes a lot of time. This store was wonderful.

American Tuxedo
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My husband and his best men all rented tuxedos. At first he was going to wear a regular suit, but during the fitting the tailor convinced him that a tuxedo is much more formal and daring. The price difference wasnt that much, and he looked great. The only thing he needed to buy after he rented the tux was his socks and shoes and his own shirt, but he got all that at Macys.

Ruth's Chris Steak House (Memphis)
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This almost didnt work out because we were delayed at the church for the rehearsal. We were twenty minutes late, but I spoke with the manager on the phone and he agreed to keep our tables. They get 5 stars just because they understood we were running late and didnt cancel on us or charge us a late fee. The food here is amazing, I think everyone who came had eaten there before. The portions are good, but the food always tastes fresh and is perfectly seasoned and the cook your steak how you like it.

Limo Express
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We rented a limousine only for the start of the wedding, to get everyone to the church and then to the party. The inside of the limousine was very cool. My favorite were the pictures of me getting out of this huge black car with my huge white dress, and then the picture of my husband and his best man getting out with their sunglasses on. My younger sister has rented a different limousine for her prom from the same company, and that limousine was cool, too.

Memphis Marriott
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Our hotel/wedding night was so romantic. We had to take a cab to the hotel from the party, and we were able to check us into our room right away. We had a suite, not just a room. They had a gorgeous Jacuzzi tub and the bathroom was huge. I wanted to live in that room forever! The nicest part was that in the morning they had breakfast for us. It was the first time I had orange juice and champagne, and I felt like a princess.
