I want to thank all of you for your help during this process, Everything was great on our perfect day, Other than it was so "HOT", that was the only issue.
All my Vendors were the best to work with, Each of them took care of us like we were "Royalty" The hardest part was the gown, as I am not a size 4, So it was the one of the things that I waited on till the last detail, as some shops were so rude, others were just OK, So I ended up going to NY to "Kleinfields" It was the only place that seemed to care. I know there are some great bridal shops, But I think alot of it had to do with my own image, But I felt so great on my wedding day, That is all that really mattered,,I am not grading any of them because they surpassed all expectations.
Photography,,,Ben Michalski We had booked Ben based on other weddings that I had been to, as well several co-workers used him, Benefit does give "Military Discounts, as all of my vendors did.
All Planning and Decor Simply Elegant Affordable Events,,Pam was so easy to work with, little did that I know when I booked her, That she is Bens wife, .Her Staff was all over the place, With lots of bottles of water for the guests, hand fan programs, Which really Helped. She offered more than other planners, worked with us on all avenues of the event, We even came in under budget.
Matters of Taste Alexandria...The best food, The guests are still talking about the "White Glove Service"

I hope this helps everyone else, at the end of the day ,We finally did it.I really don't want to put my site up because it changed hands a couple of times, they wanted us to use another cater, But I wanted the company I chose. Keep in mind it is your wedding, Enjoy every minute of it, Save to pay for it, Hire a great planner.
Don't stress over it.
