Mari did an amazing job for my wedding. We received so many compliments for our flowers. My mother and mother-in-law loved their flowers. Mari did more than I had asked for and was beautiful. I had a low budget it mind and she did everything she could to make it work. I ended up getting more than what I thought I could get and it was under the expected budget. She was very patient with me through all the changes. she gave me her input and ideas which helped planning the wedding a lot easier. I found her through this site and am so glad I used her. Before I signed on with her, I had met with 5 other florists and she was the most flexible and understanding of the cost and stayed in my budget when she gave me her proposal. Such an amazing job... my Husband now was very pleased as well.

We had our wedding here on Fourth of July. We had our own deck with an amazing view of the Fourth of July fireworks. It was amazing. Everything went smoothly and my event coordinator, Karen Frait was so helpful. Even with my crazy request she tried her best to do get me whatever we needed. My wedding ran so smoothly and everyone had so much fun. It was a great place to have our wedding and the suites were so nice. It was nice and big for us to get ready as well.

House of Brides
My initial visit was great. When I was trying on dresses they seemed very eager. I came back for my second visit, this time it was to find my bridesmaid dresses. I decided to get the dress elsewhere since I had not found the style that i had wanted but decided to get the bridesmaids dresses here since my consultant had worked so hard and she seemed really nice. My consultant was good, slow in response but still got back to me in couple of days. But when my consultant was not there, the other ladies who could help, was not willing and very rude! Also I asked them not to provide my phone number to other vendors and I do not want to be getting useless automated calls but of course that was not the case. I got three calls from an automated message from House of brides. I have called three times asking them to remove me, and finally it took that third time and talking to the manager to remove me from their phone list. And also have been getting calls for all sorts of wedding vendors on a daily basis.. asked them where they got my information and they said through other vendors and would not tell me. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR PHONE # or House of Brides will provide your contact information to other vendors. I unfortunately had to give them my # since I mistakenly ordered my bm dresses from here. Only if I had known. After the we ordered the dresses, I started having more issues. All four of my bridemaids paid for the dress and placed an order in November. End of December they call me and tell me they can't give me the color that I want, the sash color and it has to be one color. I tell them the only reason I went with the dress and House of Brides is because they had the sash color that I wanted. They tell me I can't get a refund since it is their manufacturers fault for not telling them. I talk to the manager and tell her this is unacceptable, their relationship with the manufacturer has nothing to do with me and I want a refund. She finally agrees to a discount price and tells me she will give the refund back to my bridemaids. It took 2 months for them to refund my bms their money. I had to call them on a weekly basis and everytime they said oh its not deposited yet, well call back at this time since the manager is not here. This went on for 2 months till they finally did it. This is the most unorganized ridiculous place. Also instead of calling me to tell me the dresses arrived, they left a message to my bridesmaid saying it was ready. So I called them to verify and they said they tried calling me several times but could not get through, which does not make sense to me since when they called for order clarifications, it went through. This placed is the most unorganized place ever. don't understand how they even get business. My advise to anybody looking for dresses, go somewhere else. This place is just not worth all the trouble.

This was my final place after a whole day of wedding dress shopping. I had found a dress that I thought was okay at another place. I get to Wedding Belles and these two sweet ladies ask me what I'm looking for and let me look through to see if I like any of the dresses. I pick out couple and while I'm trying them on, they brought me few others they thought I would like. I fell in love with the dress they brought me. Different from what I was looking for but the dress they brought me was so gorgeous I could not help it. I ended up getting the dress but took me some time in the store to make the decision. The ladies were so sweet and patient and brought me some other options and veils to try with so I can see what it would look like. I ended up getting the dress and I can't wait for my fiancee to see me on our wedding day! A great place... suggestion, go after you have looked at other places that way you'll know when you see the dress here that, its the one.
