After reading many good reviews about this place, we decided to check it out for DHs wedding band. We ended buying a titanium band for an awesome price. They were about to have a special promotion, and even though we were a week early they still gave us the discount. Great company also family owned.

I always had a good experience here. The girls were very nice. I dreaded dress shopping my Jasmine Couture H338 was the first dress I saw, the 2nd one I tried on, and I was sold. I was so happy I found a dress so fast that I didnt care to pay their price. Im sure I could have found a better price, but I liked the place. My gown arrived 3 weeks early and in perfect condition!

My Veil purchased online at Occansey Designs was cheap! $60 I got a two layer veil, with a detachable long layer. I got it to my measurements (shorter layer was to my elbow and the longer layer was the length of my dress). Arrived fast and well packaged! http://occanseydesigns.com/veils/TwoLayerSheer/LSH2LY36to108.html

Mel, the owner, was awesome to work with. Great guy who worked with us. He was our driver on the day of. Arrive early and then waited for us outside the church. Highly recommended! We rented the white 1963 Rolls Royce.

Print Efex in La Caada was great to work with. A+ - They are a family owned business with another location in Glendale. I got my invites printed in thermography (2 colors). Since they actually have this machine, the cost is cut way down! No 3rd party to pay! I provided my own paper and just put my Adobe files on a CD for them. Great experience, definitely recommended if your looking for someone to print your stuff.

Cakery Bakery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We LOVED our cake! All of our guests loved our cake! It was a chocolate cake with bavarian cream filling and a whipped cream frosting. Even non-chocolate lovers enjoyed the cake. It was very moist. We also rented the silver cake stand from them for $40. The cake was included in our package, but we paid a little extra to have 2 squares for the bottom layers. When our guest count went up, they happily supplied an extra sheet cake just in case.

I was so reluctant to hire a coordinator (and it was not in our budget). I thought I could do it all my self. I finally came to my senses and hired Angel as my day of coordinator, just a month before my wedding. Angel is a dream to work with. She came highly recommended by fellow brides and she definitely did not disappoint. She helped so much in that last month. She was always available and on top of everything. In the end, I could not have pulled off without her. I did not worry about a thing on my wedding day. I knew everything was taken care of and it was. I highly recommend at least a day-of-coordinator. It is totally worth every penny!!!

Good service. Guys used their own ties that we gave them as part of their gift. We didnt like any of the colors that they had to offer (reddish brown or forest green).

Netbride quoted me the dress for $50 cheaper so I went with them. They are great to work with. Easy ordering and fast shipping. Unfortunately, I had some bad luck. My order had to be shipped in two boxes. Well, mother effen UPS happened to lose one of my boxes!! We had 1.5 month till the wedding (luckily the dresses had been shipped a month earlier than promised). After waiting for a week in hopes that UPS would locate the box (which they didnt) I had to figure out what to do (just as I was leaving for my bachelorette weekend in Baja!). I still needed 4 dresses. Laura at Netbride was a dream to work with. She went above and beyond the call of duty for us. After the people at B.L. told us there was no way they could make our gowns in time, we got lucky when a higher up at Netbride happened to know a higher up at Bill Levkoff. They did a special rush for netbride and were promised a delivery date of 6 days before the wedding. The gown arrived straight from China with 9 days tills our wedding. Just enough time to get them all altered (since they seem to run big in the chest and on everything in the bigger sizes). In conclusion I still recommend netbride. They fixed something that wasnt theyre fault and never gave me sh!t about it.

Trista Lerit Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Based in the OC, but travels anywhere. What a blessing Trista has been. I hired Trista with only 3 months left till our wedding. Our first photographer (J. Clawson Photography - has now filed for bankruptcy) was very shady and I knew I had to get out while we still had time. I followed my gut instincts and lost my deposit. But, boy, was it worth it!!! From my first meeting with Trista I knew I had to have her. She is new to the business, but acts and works like a pro! And her work shows it. Both of our families cannot stop talking about what an awesome job she did, and we haven't even received our pictures!!! She is the sweetest person. Snatch her up while her rates are still low!!! I know we definitly want to work with her again in the future.

La Canada Flintridge Country Club
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My review is a bit biased. FIL works there, so we got hooked up with a lot of stuff. But I'll try to hit on the basics. I have absolutely no complaints about LCFCC! But then again.....the manager is friends with my now FIL and he was around for most of the reception making sure everything was just right. One thing - I heard the mixed drinks were weak and expensive. We had hosted bar for 2 hours. But I got raves on the hor'derves and food. Food was hot and the chicken was tender and juicy. But again....the manager asked the chef to cook all the chicken that day (they usually cook it the night before). They have a new coord. She's kind of wacko (Shirley), but they had someone new working our wedding. She was super nice and was all over the place making sure things were right. Overall, I reccommend this country club. They recently expanded their menu selections and are constantly making upgrades around the clubhouse. We used the main ballroom which was perfect for our 200+ guests. Large dance floor and private restroom.

The Flower Garden
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The owner is a family friend who has been providing our flowers for many years. I knew they were the only one's I wanted for this day. Mariano took care of us and did an amazing job! From finding my peonies, hydrangeas, and white lilac's to re-using flowers from the church at the reception on the day of. We loved all of our floral arrangements. They were so fresh and lasted for over a week after the wedding!! The peonies in my bouquet stayed fresh for a whole week. I highly recommend their services, but they are pricey!
