Sassafras Flowers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I did have a bouquet done. I had remember seeing a bouquet I loved in People magazine, and I cut it out and brought it to this shop. I chose the shop because of proximity and because this is usually where I go to buy flowers. They are more on the upscale size, but they were willing to make my bouquet. It was fun sitting there as they listed all the flowers in the bouquet and how much it would cost to make the bouquet. It was a beautiful cascading bouquet, and I loved it very much. My only regret is that I didnt take better care of it during the evening so that I could have preserved it.

Midtown Tailor Shop
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I didnt do the alterations at the bridal store because I thought the sales staff was surly and crabby. I really like the woman who works there, she has done tailorwork for my mother who is a plus size woman and also for my sisters wedding dress. The thing I like about her is that she always meets her deadline. And I always see her working.

Jane's Fashions and Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I found the wedding dress I wanted in the prom dress section. I liked the dress, thought I didnt really like the staff members. I think they are a bit surly, and I think they were rude to my friends. I was also sensitive to the fact that I am older, and the saleswomen didnt seem impressed that I wanted to try on prom dresses. The dress I chose was very simple, elegant, but also fun and modern. It fit well enough, and I knew with the right undergarments it would work. Also, the dress was very cheap, seeing as it was 50% off.

Cobblestone Cork & Bottle
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We liked the idea of bottling our own wine and then giving out bottles as presents. We also were able to bottle enough bottles to serve at our own wedding. The place is close enough, and the owners and workers there were really helpful. I also really liked the labels we had on the bottles. This might have been one of my favorite wedding things.

Guess Inc. (Walden Galleria)
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My sister has been a bridesmaid about 12 times, and this was the 10th time she would be a bridesmaid/maid of honor. She is in good shape and she is beautiful and can make anything look good. She found this very modern dress at a Guess store in Buffalo, and I was very impressed with how beautiful and simple the dress was. The dress was well-made, and even if I wasnt there when she bought the dress, I think Guess is the sort of store where the sales staff just leaves you alone. If I was her size, I would have worn that dress. She almost got as many compliments as I did.

Coldwater Salon & Day Spa
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Instead of going to a make-up artist, I went to have my nails and toes nails done. This is a pretty fancy place, and they do an amazing job. It took about an hour for my toes because they soak them and then rub off all the calluses. They do a great job with the toes, though they dont necessarily give the best French manicures. I have gone elsewhere and have had better French manicures, but they have the best overall store.

Jines Restaurant
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is a great local diner/restaurant that I dont think most people know about. We really liked having our out-of-town guests eat here with us because it is a cosy place, and the food is comfort food. I think most people like the menu, and especially the wine menu. They have a great wine menu, which is great because we are a couple that likes wine.

Advantage Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I ordered my cake-topper online. I had seen in Modern Bride how you can have the initials of the couple, and thats what I wanted. I thought it looked really chic. I ordered online, and the S&H was a bit much, but I couldnt think of any local stores that would carry wedding toppers like the one I wanted. It now sits on our mantel in the living room.

Hair Elite
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I had my hair done on my wedding day, but I dont think I would have done this again. I basically just wanted my hair blown out and have a few curls in it. It was so simple what I wanted that I realized that I could have just done it myself. It took less than 15 minutes. Luckily I go here all the time and they just charged me for a blow out rather than the full wedding day up-do price.
