The Glass Slipper

It takes less than an hour to get there, but it was a nice and easy drive from Memphis. I wasnt in love with the idea of getting a white wedding dress, but I found the most simple and beautiful wedding dress here. It was not cheap. They had a whole rack full of beautiful wedding dresses that were 65% off, but I had to go for the one dress that was over $1000 and not on sale. I think my mother was just happy that I found something somewhat traditional.

Shara's Paperie Studio
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I wanted to have a whole low-key wedding, but once my mother talked me into having a rooftop party following our garden reception, I realized that the invitations needed to be nice. I wanted something nicer than what I could make, so I asked some friends and they all suggested Shara. Her shop was cute and I liked the idea of having someone from Memphis make the cards. I asked Shara to make the invitations, because I know she was able to make something chic and cool and still look like something that my husband and I would make. I loved the she understood my solstice theme, and how she suggested bright yellow and red envelopes. It was perfect, just what I wanted.

Harrah's Casino Memphis
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I wasnt that surprised when my husbands best man told me that they were taking him to a casino and bar for the weekend. Its not the nicest casino, its not like Vegas or anything even though they try to claim it is, but I have gone there before with my girlfriends and we had a good time. One thing my husband commented on was that they have a huge staff, and that staff members are always walking around cleaning or offering people drinks. He said he loved his weekend, but he needed the whole week to recuperate. I was happy that we werent getting married the following weekend.

Backstreet Memphis
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I never go out to clubs, and Im not the type of person who likes going to busy clubs like Backstreet, but my girlfriends convinced me to go since there was the promise of karoke. I remember that the karaoke wasnt really popular when we arrived, which was early, but we did get to sing a few songs before going to the dance floor upstairs. They played great music, lots of 80s and 90s music, and some new stuff, the DJ was great because he really mixed it up for everyone.

Miss Muff'n Bakery
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I liked the idea of having something practical as a favor or gift to the guests, which is why I really liked the idea of having custom wedding cookies. We debated over getting the traditional bride/groom cookie set, but when we saw that they made beautiful sun and moon cookies, we went with that. We loved how our solstice wedding party theme could be part of the cookie design.

Madison Hotel
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This whole evening was perfect because it was run so smoothly. Our main contact person, Josh, was in charge of making sure that the food and the set-up was just perfect. The view was wonderful, and the menu they had was great. They take care of the food and drinks, and I was happy that I didnt need to get in contact with a second person. I only wish I hadnt been so busy and could have eaten more! Everyone kept saying how good the food was but I barely had time to eat more than two bites.

Woodlands Vegetarian Restaurant
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband and I had been vegetarians for the longest time, and only recently did we start eating some meat and fish again. We still wanted the rehearsal dinner to be at our favorite vegetarian restaurant. The food here is great, and the chef will alter your order if you have allergies or dont like something. I also liked the atmosphere, and I like that you can have take-out.
