Overall, I am very pleased with all of our vendors and would recommend all but one to other brides.
DO NOT USE THIS VENDOR!
Long story short: They arrived two days later then they should have; they were the wrong color combo; I paid shipping for two boxes, and everything came in one; several of the sashes were torn/ripped/dirty; several of the chair covers were torn/ripped/stained; Martha could not be reached, and in fact, I still have not heard back from her.
I sent her a certified letter explaining all of this (in much more detail, of course), and demanding a 100% refund. I've also filed with the Better Business Burea since she has failed to return any of my phone calls or emails.
Because my orginal chair covers and sashs were late arriving AND the wrong colors, we jumped through hoops to find replacements the day before the wedding.
Luckily Model Cleaners in Fond du Lac (920.922.3800) was able to fill our order.
They were very nice and I'm extremely happy they were able to help us on such short notice.
Netbrides.com has wonderful, wonderful reviews and they can save you a ton of money.
If you know the style number of the wedding/bridesmaid/mother-of-the-bride/flower girl dress, they are able to give you a quote--at a huge discount then what you can get in the bridal stores.
My dress is from Eden and cost $398 in the store, but got it from netbrides.com for $270, and that included the garment bag.
The bridesmaids' dresses were also Eden, cost $168 in the store and we got them for $98 each (the girls all split the cost of shipping, so it came to only $108 total per girl).
Mark was great--he played great music, pronounced everyone's name correctly during the Grand March...we were very pleased with him.
He returns emails quickly.
My husband and I loved his unique concepts for both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures.
He mixes things up between the traditional poses to the more edgy, high fashion poses--we really had a fantastic time working with him.
Very quick to return emails, and he will travel to you.
She did an awesome job--all of the bridesmaids, the mothers, and myself had makeup that stayed put, even with some tears flowing. (We started makeup at 7 AM for our 1 PM wedding...and we all went to about 11:30 that night, and still our makeup held up!)
She is a really nice lady, and made the morning a lot of fun.
Very quick to return emails, and she will travel to you.
Kali was wonderful! She did all of the girls', including mothers' and me, hair, and it helded up very well.
I hadn't done a trial run with the hair style I wanted because I live in PA, but all I did was show her a picture of what I was looking for, and it turned out great.
She takes a few days to return emails, so calling would be faster, and she will travel to you.
They were wonderful to work with, always friendly when on the phone, and quick to return emails.
They had to stay late the day before the wedding to do some last minute alterations for the groomsmen, but they didn't seem to mind, and it was all done on time.
They are quick to return emails and very nice to work with on the phone.
The food was excellent, and their prices are pretty good, but I didn't like how I had to go tell them the day of the wedding to turn the heat on in the bathrooms, the paper towels were out in the ladies bathroom, or that one of our tables still needed silverware (and all of this was addressed the previous day.)
Overall, it was a nice experience, and they were great at clearing off the tables, setting up/taking down tables, and lighting all of the 240 voitive candles throughout the room before we arrived.
They are horrible at returning email, but are fairly easy to get a hold of on the phone.
