Decorations

Decent vendor IF you live in the area and can go see the fabric colors for yourself! I live out of state now but had the wedding back home & did everything over email. Stephanie was VERY quick to respond to emails UNTIL I paid her! As soon as the final payment was made, it was VERY difficult to get a hold of her. I originally wanted linens & chair cover sashes to match the bridesmaid dresses. I offered to send a fabric swatch so she could match it to her colors and she said she'd go to the nearby dress shop and look at that color by that designer. I started getting worried about the color because she wouldn't respond about going to the dress shop..so I decided to do a bright contrasting color to stand out so we wouldn't have to worry about matching. She said that was fine, sent me an invoice with the new color, sent me pictures of how to set the tables up...etc. I was VERY specific on exactly what colors, what sizes and how I wanted the tables decorated. I even color coded my emails to make it perfectly clear! I paid in full right on the deadline and then a week before the wedding she tells me that she doesn't have the bright purple at all and that she'd figure out something... so the wedding day comes and it was back to the purple that was supposed to match. And it looked NOTHING like the bridesmaid dresses! TOTALLY off! And the tables were NOTHING like how I wanted them set up. My mom and aunt were there decorating and said they actually had to steam iron all the chair covers because they were so wrinkled! If they didn't have a color to match, she should have just said so in the first place, because I was very particular about matching seeing as the purple was a very different toned down european lilac. She clearly didn't go to the dress store. She was very easy to contact in the beginning and by far the cheapest price! But I guess you get what you pay for... I definitely recommend going in PERSON and not paying until you know for SURE everything is how you want it.

Rehearsal Lunch/Dinner

AWESOME place to have rehearsal dinner! Very laid back, fun atmosphere but still somewhat fancy and wedding-like :) Barb is the manager who puts together the dinners...she was AMAZING! VERY dedicated and passionate about doing rehearsal dinners and even makes centerpieces to match your wedding colors! She really made the room very beautiful and personalized at no extra cost! Food was AMAZING and didn't even end up costing that much! I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone. Ask for Barb!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this vendors beautiful creations!! The flowers were amazing and the owner of the shop (Angie) is GREAT to work with! They were willing to drive 45 min away to my venue and forgot some things and had no problem making another trip to get them. There was only 1 little problem, the main flower in my husbands boutineer was the wrong color...but it didn't even matter because everything was so beautiful! haha Would HIGHLY recommend!

Hotels/Accommodations

Hotel was good for the price. The planning portion however...had a LOT of problems! People were booked in two rooms, they gave away the bridal suite to someone else, people were told the rooms were all gone and charged full price for a regular room (when I knew for a fact only 3 rooms had been booked so far...) Just very frustrating throughout the planning process. I actually had to make about 3 hour long phone calls to get it all figured out...but once we got there on wedding weekend, everything went smoothly. (thanks to my phone calls) haha
