Wedding Box Inc
I bought an entire wedding package from Wedding Box and it included all dresses, makeup, hair, tuxes, limo and photography. I thought they did an excellent job with my makeup and hair and for all my bridesmaids as well. But at times, they would confuse my order and would not specify upfront whether they had something in a specific color or not and only after I left my money would they tell me it was not available. I am not an extremely picky person so I let it go. It is a little bit of a learning experience with them and while the people that help you out are great, they are new and unfamiliar with all the items available. Overall, I would not say I was completey satisfied but I am not dissatisfied either. My dresses were beautiful and we all looked great on the wedding day and that's what matters most!
had a pleasent time
You really need to know which packages fits your needs. Wedding Box is very accomodating and professional.
Grade : A+
We gave Wedding Box as a group and individually an A+ because this vendor really worked together. Each staff while had their own task and function still worked coherently as a group with great teamwork skills to give us great service.

Photography by Rex, Oscar and Kevin
We bought the Diamond Package because we were incredibly impressed with Rex's photography skills and style from our other friends' weddings. When you buy the Diamond Package, you are guaranteed Rex as your photographer. Rex taught us how to pose, made us laugh and really tried hard to take good quality pictures. When Rex took a picture that was just so so during the studio shoot he would shoot over - that was how incredibly professional Rex was. You would know when a photo met Rex's standards because he would stare at his camera and say "hmm... acceptable." We also worked with Oscar (photographer) and Kevin (assistant) who were both funny and very helpful. Oscar was very attentive to detail and made sure to always smooth out the bottom of my dress which was much appreciated. Oscar himself is also a photographer and his pictures are exceptional as well.
Makeup by Tina
For hair and makeup, we worked with Tina. I can not say enough good things about Tina. She is very kind, professional and truly listened to what I wanted. Most of the time, I gave Tina free reign to work with my hair and Tina was very creative in the styles she created for me. Tina's makeup skills are also incredible. Apparently, Tina was a professional makeup artist for photo shoots and magazines back in Shanghai! On the day of our indoor shooting, I had gotten little to no sleep the night before and had a few red dots from residual acne + enormous eye bags. Tina made my skin flawless and gave me huge bright eyes. I keep telling everyone that I walked into Wedding Box looking like a pig and Tina had me walking out looking like a model. Tina exhibited the same patience and creative skill on the day of our wedding as well. We highly highly recommend working with Tina even if you just want makeup done separately.
On the day of our wedding, the girls had Aggie and I believe Vicky working on my bridesmaids' hair and makeup. They all turned out fabulous, especially Aggie's hairstyle for one of my bridesmaid's shorter hair. All my bridesmaids looked fabulous and even our guests commented on how beautiful they were!
On the sales front, I dealt with a good number of gals. Our main sales rep was Annie who was great - she was very helpful and kept track of the pricing for our contract. We also worked closely with Kitty who is totally awesome. Kitty always followed up whenever I had a question and paid careful attention to small details. We worked a bit with kimberly and Vicky the week before the wedding because Annie went on vacation. Both gals were very helpful, espcially Kimberly when I was getting dressed into the Chinese Han Fu on the day of the wedding - Kimberly found me safety pins and double sided tape to stick up the bow on my Han Fu. All the sales were able to keep me in check when I started turning bridezilla in the last 2 weeks as well which was much appreciated! The one thing we would advise is to keep up with the items your schedule and with anything that is special ordered like dresses, enlargements, etc. The sales team is generally very good about following up but I've seen their calendar and they are very BUSY!
The only thing we were a bit miffed about was the limo service on our wedding day. We were guaranteed 8 hours but we only really used the limo for 5-6. We let the limo driver off 2 hours early and paid the driver $20 tip but the driver came back to us saying that the minimum for tip had to be $50. The limo driver said that Wedding Box should have told us but that seemed kind of fishy. We were not very happy with the limo driver also because we gave the limo driver a bag of tulle to decorate the limo. When the limo driver took the bag, he made a comment, "What the F* am I supposed to do with this?" That was highly unprofessional. Although he did manage to get the 2 kitty plushes on the front of the car, the rest of the tulle was not used at all and he had plenty of time to use them up.
Our package originally included bridemaid dress rentals from either Mori Lee or Forever Yours. I wanted a pale mint green color which none of those companies carried but Watters did. If Wedding Box were to order the actual Watters dress, I had to pay an extra ~$65/dress. Wedding Box offered to have a Taiwanese seamstress make the bridesmaid dresses based on the Watters design which would not cost extra. I took that risk and the dresses all came out fabulous, even customized to each girl's size! Only minimal alterations were needed so we were very happy on how the dresses turned out.
Ok, so the other thing that I wish we had more coverage on was the video part. Terrance/Lawrence did a pretty nice job in the beginning of the day with the tea ceremony coverage but we lost a good 30 minutes where the guests filtered into the chapel, the chapel itself, about 20 minutes of our cocktail hour and we lost bits of our 1st dance. We paid an extra $150 for the unedited footage a few days after the wedding and towards the end of the DVD, there were 2 sections of our DVD which together added up to be about 10 minutes of dancing from another bride's wedding =P LOL~ It was pretty funny because our whole family was watching the unedited video and when that part came up, we were like who turned on the Bollywood music? I'm guessing our videographer was recording over an old tape and was worried about running out of tape. It would have been awesome to get the whole 10 hours of footage so that we could do some of our own cutting and splicing but we did get a good ~5 hours. Otherwise, we were quite happy with how the unedited video turned out and are anxious to see the edited video.
For the price that we paid, we highly highly recommend Wedding Box because of the comprehensiveness in their services offered and quality of photos. Having great photos was really our priority and Wedding Box more than met our expectations. Being amateur photographers ourselves (ha!), I'd say meeting our goal was no easy task. Many many props and thanks to Rex, Oscar and Kevin at Wedding Box!
