We had the perfect wedding. All of our vendors were excellent. I am so happy to be able to help others end their searches and choose vendors who truly helped me be as relaxed a bride as possible!
Brides – you do not have to spend hundreds of dollars on your makeup! Heather does airbrush makeup the day of your wedding and a trial for $65 dollars and she is great at what she does! I highly recommend using her. She is affordable, reliable, and really listens to what you want.
While the staff at Azteca has a reputation for not being the greatest, my consultant was very nice and helpful. I got a great deal on my dress and it was beautiful! However, they did not contact me when my dress came in and it sat there for a month without my knowing. I wouldn’t recommend using them for alterations either. Janet Kirkman is way cheaper and she is a pro!
I cannot say enough about Janet Kirkman! She made my dress fit like a glove. She was sweet and professional. Her work is amazing and she was very reasonably priced. She includes steaming in her prices. I really enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her!
I tried on wedding gowns at Suzanne’s. They were very helpful, but I found Azteca to be cheaper and have more selection. I did purchase bridesmaid’s dresses there by Pretty Maids/House of Wu. They were gorgeous and very affordable. We looked at several places for dresses and found these to be the cheapest and of best quality (even better than David’s Bridal). We used them for alterations and they only charged $25 for a hem. The girls looked stunning in the gowns, not your typical cheesy bridesmaid’s dress. The staff at Suzanne’s was always helpful and professional.
Heidi’s staff was professional and easy to work with. We worked with Drew and he was so helpful. He even called me a couple times to make sure everything they selected for my wedding was just right. They handled so much for me and it was a huge stress relief. Their food was so delicious! All of our guests raved about how it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding and how their napkins were refolded each time they left their seats. I felt so proud to have chosen such a good vendor. I highly recommend Heidi’s for any event requiring a caterer.
Kevin was so easy to work with. He really put us at ease. The cake is absolutely delicious! It was so beautiful, too. Everyone loved it. My husband cannot wait until our 1 year anniversary so he can eat some more cake. Also, we contracted with Piece of Cake through Heidi’s Catering which made my life so much easier! It was less phone calls for me to make and I really appreciated their business partnership.
Centerpieces can get really expensive. Ikea has a ton of inexpensive plants, vases, and lanterns (which we used) that you can use for centerpieces and resell or use for home décor later on. * I bought my pillar candles at Kirkland Home. They were the cheapest I could find and I searched high and low, let me tell you. The cheapest votives I could find were at Hobby Lobby.
I absolutely loved the flowers at my wedding. Amanda was great about communicating with me through the planning process to make sure everything was how I wanted it and they turned out perfect! Over a week past my wedding, my bouquet is still in a vase looking great. Amanda was professional, easy to get a hold of, and very friendly. I highly recommend Butterfly Petals!
Jennifer is so easy-going and fun to work with. She is professional and easy to get in touch with. She gave us a great deal – the best I could find and, believe me, we looked at a million photographers. We love our engagement pictures. We used them for our save the dates, thank you cards, guest book, and framed them and hung them in our house. Every single picture she took was beautiful.Her assistant Amy was very helpful and great with our fussy flower girl and ring bearer. I highly recommend Jennifer Weems!
The tuxes looked great and fit all the guys. We had a last minute switch in our groomsmen group and they were very accommodating. I don’t know that they were the cheapest, but the guys looked great!
The Waterfront is such a beautiful venue! I was so proud of how well my wedding turned out and it was mostly because of the gorgeous reception location. Jessica was very helpful and easy to work with. My mind was at ease knowing she was in charge the day of the wedding. She helped me with planning and even made sure I had some cheese and crackers when I was starving during pictures and a glass of wine waiting for me at the head table.
