RedTail Landing Golf Club
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Red Tail Landing is located in Nisku, Alberta. Dean is the head chef and organizes the rentals/events. He and his staff were very accommodating. I wanted to have an evening event with a meal around 9:00 p.m. He prepared a wonderful meal with baron of beef, salads, fruit, etc. I highly recommend his dill pasta salad. We also wanted to include a Mexican theme as we were actually married in Mexico in March. His staff came up with some Mexican menu items and 4 Mexican themed drinks for guests to enjoy. Price of the meal per person was $20 (kids' meals $10). We also had a tonnie bar and allowed Red Tail to handle all the liquor (we paid corkage of $7.95 per person). We only paid for the bottles of liquor opened and anything left in opened bottles was sent home with us. I had also asked Dean to have a champagne table at the entrance and he was happy to do this (cost around $200). We had 160 adults and approximately 15 kids between the ages of 2-12. Kids under 2 were free. Room rental was $700 and it is an entirely separate building from the golf course. It is an elegant venue and is easy to decorate. Clean up was $200 - we only had to take home our centerpieces etc. the night of the wedding. All in all very happy with how the reception went.

Pure Bridal
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is a bridal shop located in downtown Edmonton (104th Street). The atmosphere is fabulous and the dressing rooms large with room for guests to sit on a couch outside the dressing room to view the dresses you try on. They were able to ship a Canadian dress from the Mikaella line within a reasonably short time. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I was very happy with the service and absolutely loved my dress. It is not your average bridal shop and you feel very special being a client there. Be sure to make an appointment as this is how they give each bride such individual attention. Highly recommend you look here in your search for the perfect bridal gown.

ABC Weddings
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I used ABC for rental mirrors for centerpieces, tablecloths and chair covers. Their store is located by NAIT downtown. I was very happy with everything rented. All was clean and pressed. I was able to pick up items on Thursday which was great as the Friday before is always hectic with decorating and other things. It is a family run business and they take their time to go through ideas with you regarding decor. Their prices are very reasonable and comparable to Special Event Rentals on the South side. Take the time also to shop their other wedding accessories such as guest book pens, ring pillows, guest books and flower girl baskets. I found all my matching items there and their prices for Weddingstar items is cheaper than anywhere else.

Cakes by Laura
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Laura designed the perfect wedding cake for us. She even came and set the cake up the night before. It was everything I dreamed it would be. We had each layer a different flavour and I couldn't decide which I liked best as they were all so good. She is located in Leduc, AB. She operates out of her home and focuses all of her time and attention on your cake. Call (780) 739-7757 to arrange a consultation.
