I made my invites through my gatsby (the printed inserts) and "cards and pockets" (the pocketfolds and envelopes) both turned out perfectly! for inspiration, the weddingbee blog has great examples of invites!
A+++ vendor. Tamara is unbelievably talented, professional, responsive, and creative. She is just as excited as the couple getting married and wants to make the pictures as amazing as possible. She had great ideas and we got some amazing shots. Her assistant was also great, and having both covered different angles of the same events. Also, she worked with us on tailoring a package.
got a great deal on a designer gown that i tried on at a store but couldn't afford retail. website is not super user friendly (try on dress first) and responsiveness to emails and inquiries was so/so, but overall had a great experience and recommend this website. Also, the dress does take awhile to come in! Mine came a few weeks later than quoted, be sure to factor that in!
Our DJs were very friendly and nice, but didn't facilitate the evening super well, we had to keep prompting them to either move to the next step and/or play more fun music (we did go over types of music to play ahead of time, but it didn't seem like they were playing any new songs unless we specifically asked them, so we would have to go up to the dj every few songs). that being said, got a great deal and have heard great things, just recommend being VERY specific during the interview stage.
We weren't big cake people, just wanted something unfussy that tasted good. The cake was DELICIOUS! we got several complements and it was perfect. it tastes better because they don't use fondant, it's all buttercream frosting (the designs are less specific though if that's what you're looking for).
this vendor was a last minute add on and they were great! they send you electronic copies of everyone's photos, along with the hard copy book they make you. they also work to make sure that they get pictures of everyone you want to get in the book, as well as some of the bride/groom. all of the guests LOVED this (be warned: the dance floor will be thin at times while everyone's at the photobooth!)
We absolutely LOVED the venue, but I have to give them 3 stars because we had some issues with our wedding coordinator. The coordinator did not disclose that they were undergoing construction, they were not understanding of any concerns we had regarding the construction and other issues. The wedding coordinator was VERY rude to me and my family on the day of the wedding when we were trying to figure out if we were using the rain venue. When I called after the wedding (very politely) to let the coordinator's manager know what happened, she did not want to hear it and offered no solutions, telling me the entire thing was in my head (even though I had random wedding guests coming up asking me who that woman was who was so rude to my mother before the ceremony). The venue itself is awesome, and the waitstaff were amazing (especially the woman who takes care of the bride/groom all night) but the interaction with the coordinator throughout the months leading to the wedding, and on the day of, sort of soured the whole thing for us.
awesome place to house you and your guests. great atmosphere and the bar downstairs is a great gathering place for the wedding party and friends after events.
