We had to have our wedding in July, which isn't the best month weather-wise in San Francisco, but the rain held off and we had a great time. It's possible to have a relatively affordable wedding in San Francisco, as we did, but you have to do your homework and be willing to keep the guest list small. Many members of our family were from out of town, as were our friends, and I think that wedding mapper was a great resource for them.
The initial wedding workshop was kind of expensive for a giant group lesson. We took one private lesson and our instructor was able to choreograph a simple, but fun first dance. If you have the extra cash or like dancing this is fun. It can also make a nervous, non-dancer more comforable. However, the instruction is a little expensive for what you get.
Skilled student musicians at a reasonable. You will save money and still get quality performers. We hired two musicians for the ceremony and for the cocktail hour.
This is a great venue for a smallish wedding. The food was wonderful and the view of the bay is amazing. The events manager was very cooperative and organized.
Men's Wearhouse is convenient because they are everywhere and their prices are reasonable. However, they messed up a couple of the orders. The store did find a way to fix the problem, but not before it created some stress for us.
We got a lot of bang for our buck with Richard. He shoots digitally and I would say that his style is more documentary/candid photos. He rates are really, really reasonable because he is relatively new to the business and he's a nice guy.
Very accommodating, good prices for the location and it's newly renovated. The perfect spot for friends and family who are new to San Francisco and want to do touristy things during your wedding week.
