Bethany was wonderful to work with. Her packages offered the most out of anyone that we met with. She is a great photographer and takes any ideas you have into consideration while also bringing her own creativity. I absolutely love how our engagement and wedding photos. She comes prepared for anything and was a dream to work with. She even got our reception moving when our DJ did not.
We got all of our bridesmaid dresses from Alfred Angelo, and while it was a little more expensive than some of the other dress shops you can go to in Lincoln, the colors they offered matched what we wanted better and the service was 100% better than what I've experienced elsewhere. The store attendants are very helpful and accommodating. The store was clean and organized.
When my future husband and I met with Doc in Lincoln nearly a year before our wedding, he seemed like a great DJ, didn't talk too much like others we had met with, had everything on his computer and was nice. About a month beforehand, we submitted our music requests (special songs, do not play, etc.) and all the other information he had requested. On the day of our wedding, however, it was like he hadn't even read what we had sent him. He played the right songs for our dedication dances but otherwise he was difficult to work with - playing songs/artists we had specifically said not to play, playing dinner music all night until our photographer said we needed to get the speeches and dedication dances going because it was late, arguing with our mothers about starting dinner early and refusing to do so until my husband contacted him while we were taking photos, going to the bar to watch the Husker game instead of manning his DJ booth, setting up his equipment on the dance floor, etc. It was the biggest disappointment we had out of all our vendors, because he had seemed so good when we first met him.
My mom and I had seen this vendor at some of the Lincoln area Bridal Shows, and then a friend of mine had them at her reception and they were fantastic everywhere we saw them so as soon as we had a date set, the first vendor we booked was this photo booth! They didn't let us down, the guests favorite part of the evening was the photo booth - they still mention how much fun it was months later. By the time our 3 hours was up, my new husband and I had not gotten a chance to go through the booth yet because it'd been so busy and Theresa was nice enough to let my mom know so we could get an extra half hour and they got us in special for a few times in a row just so we would have those memories. The book that they and the guests created is fantastic, we will cherish it for years to come.
After being told by another Tux vendor in Lincoln that what I wanted (2 different colors of grey tuxes) for our wedding party would be impossible and seeing how worn down their tuxes were, we stopped by Tip Top Tux on a whim. And lo and behold in their display window they had 2 different colors of the same grey tux! We were very pleased with TTT. They were easy to work with, even when we had to make last-minute adjustments to our wedding party. They weren't the cheapest option but the tuxes looked like new. I would say that the measuring policies between different locations isn't the same because we had groomsmen and ushers in different states and the tuxes don't all fit the same. But overall we were very pleased with them.
I was getting married in Lincoln but live in Kansas City so I knew I wanted to look for a dress down here. Each visit to Gown Gallery was fantastic. The girls that work there are all very nice, you are offered mimosas, juice, water and cookies when you sit down for your appointment. I worked with Eboni when I was looking for my gown and she was fantastic. I was prepared with photos of dresses I liked and she took that into consideration. On the first visit there, I found a gown that I really liked, but when my mom and I went back again to see if there was another I might like more, Eboni remembered a gown that was on their sample sale rack that she thought would be perfect, and it was! Eboni was positive and willing to work with me until we found the absolute perfect dress. The alterations process was similarly wonderful. They were always very helpful. I wish I had another reason to go back and find a fancy gown because I would definitely return here!
We worked with Mickenzie and Gary of YBG to create our invitations and ended up loving them so much we went back to them for our guest book print and ceremony programs. They were fantastic to work with and were willing to make any changes we asked for. When the company we were coordinating with to print the invites backed out at the very last minute, YBG was very accommodating in updating our order to reflect printing and then hand delivering them to my now-husband's work (because they're also in the KC area). Our invites turned out perfectly and Mickenzie and Gary had actually put them all together for us (like gluing the ribbon band), which we very much appreciated because we were so far behind after the printer debacle.
Our reception hall also did the catering for our reception and the food was wonderful. They didn't do a typical tasting, so we weren't sure how it would turn out but in the end the food was great.
The Falls was a great venue because of the large dance floor and the water features and stone decorations everywhere. But it was difficult working with Millie. Up until about a week before the wedding, there was nothing scheduled the Friday before our wedding so we were planning on going in and decorating. But a couple of days before, without letting us know this was happening, she scheduled a high school party. So we were forced to go in in the wee hours of our wedding day and do all the decorating. And during our reception, she was nowhere to be found when it came time to cut the cake or restock the dessert table like she said she would. My mom had to go find her on several occasions even though she was supposed to be the coordinator for our whole reception.
