Bands/Live Entertainment

Dave Ivaz provided beautiful ceremony music and a rockin' reception. They kept people dancing the whole time and were totally open to our off-the-beaten-path music choices.

Brian was great with communication, incredibly nice to work with, and absolutely wonderful the day of the wedding. He is really calm and has a great eye. He got us proofs within a week, and the shots were amazing. We highly recommend Brian!

Invitations

Great selection, very reasonable prices, and fast shipping. This site also has a nice variety of seasonal and recycled invitations/paper, lots of colored ink choices, and options for customizing (symbols, wording, fonts, etc.). The website is easy to use, and customer service was always very helpful. Dawn also offers some great coupon codes/discounts.

What a wonderful experience! Annette is just the best. She could not have been more helpful or more supportive. I wanted a short wedding dress, so she thought outside the box and suggested a bridesmaid dress that was exactly what I was looking for at a great price. I highly, highly recommend Doris Bridal.

Beautiful outdoor ceremony site with a nice, big reception hall. Since the place is run by a catering company, it's one-stop shopping. The food and presentation were fantastic--we got so many compliments on Indy Grove!

Hotels/Accommodations

Good value--free breakfast and free shuttle to/from the wedding venue. They have suites, so this is a good option for families who wanted a little more space.

Hotels/Accommodations

Nice, new hotel but not much bang for your buck (no free breakfast, for example). They did end up helping us out with a free shuttle to/from the wedding though--so make sure to ask about that. The other option is to use a shuttle rental service they have, which is really expensive. We had also been told that we'd have to pay to have them deliver the little welcome bags we made for our guests, but they ended up bringing those to the rooms for free.
