Eclectica Scrapbooks & Stamps
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I love doing arts and crafts, so I was all about making my own wedding invitations. I actually found the best supplies and support for making my invitations was at Eclectica Scrapbooks & Stamps. The person who worked there was always willing to take time and really show me what supplies she had in stock. I wasnt making a scrapbook, but she understood how the same techniques could be applied to the front of an invitation. They also offered classes, and I did attend one and it really helped me improve my stamping skills and gave me more ideas.

Flashback Inc. The Vintage Department Store
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I did not want a traditional wedding dress, but I did want something beautiful. I ended up finding a beautiful vintage wedding dress at Flashback. They dont have a lot of clothing at Flaahback, but they do usually carry some interesting formal dresses. They carry more dresses this year, I noticed, and while all of them are cool, you really have to look for the special dress. I chose my dress because it did look like a 60s wedding dress, short and mode looking. It was almost my size and in great condition, which is why I bought it.

Geneva's Tailoring & Alterations
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had to find someone to take in the dress a few sizes and also to hem it. I picked this place because they have a good reputation as being fair with their prices. I also went here because they have the dry cleaning service, and they were able to dry clean the dress for me. They did a great job. I went back with my dress after the wedding and they cleaned it again.

Beauty Shop Restaurant
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I loved my bachelorette party. I pretty much love all things vintage, and so it was pretty amazing to get all my girlfriends together for a night at Beauty Shop. Its not a typical restaurant, it has a bit more attitude and the wall decorations really interested to look at. The menu is okay, pricey but they have some interesting things, and the presentation is what I think counts. I think its the coolest place in the world to start the night.

Woodlands Vegetarian Restaurant
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The catering team we hired was one that did my sisters sweet sixteen party. We had more or less the same menu, with a few more expensive appetizers for my wedding. I like them because I think they have a good menu, and also because they are very professional. My mother and I were both impressed with how clean they left the house after they arrived. It was also important that we get someone who could cook vegetarian food, because my husbands whole family and my sister are vegetarians.

Eston Salon Spa
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I really like this place because they use Aveda products. I always leave here and I feel 100% more fresh and clean. We had a three day plan at the salon, which included getting a pedicure and manicure, coloring and cut, and the final wedding hair up-do. The pedicure was my favorite. My hair looked amazing for the wedding. I was also amazed at what a good coloring job they did. I usually color my hair myself, but since then I have been going there and letting them color my hair.

Lancer Catering at Memphis Zoo
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I still dont know where or why my fianc got the idea to have the wedding reception at the Memphis zoo. I would say that it is one of the most beautiful places, and that in the end it made sense. As soon as I saw the China Theater I knew that this was the place I wanted to get married in. It was just so different from anything we had seen, and it was the perfect size for the number of people we wanted at our wedding. We juggled our wedding dates so that we match a time and a day where the China Theater was available. And we were very lucky that the weather stayed good for our ceremony.

Stringer's Garden Center
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My sister and I are pretty crafty, so we decided that we would make our own bouquets and the centerpieces ourselves. The reception was going to be at my grandparents house so we knew that they could be more informal looking. We know are way around Stringers pretty well because I used to work there when I was a teenager. We picked out a bunch of pretty pots, and there are lots of to choose from, and then picked out crates of flowers. We chose mostly Hydrangeas because the salesperson said that they last the longest and look the best. I liked it because my bouquet looked more wild, and I got to brag that all the flowers were local.

James Middleton Jewelers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had no problem with the wedding planning until I went ring shopping with my fianc. I am the type of girl who likes plastic rings and cheap necklaces, mainly because I lose jewelry all the time. I saw the ring and the price that my fianc wanted to spend on my and was shocked. His mother likes big fancy jewelry, which is where he got the idea that I would want a big ring. I guess I will give this place five stars because the owner was really funny and helped me relax, and we were finally able to talk my fianc into getting something more simple. I like simple, and I was happy they took time to help us find rings that matched our personalities.
