Information for New Brides to be!

Hope this helps!

Our church was St Francis Xavier-SLU's College Church. Our wedding coordinator Ruth was GREAT! Very organized and fabulous.

Our reception was at Spazios in Westport. Dealing with Mark was wonderful. He is the owner. Dealing with Katie was not the best and the lady who was in charge the day of was a complete bitch. My parents were told we could get into the room no later than 3 that day to start setting up and at 5 they still had people in it from the lunch they had earlier that day. Needless to say everything was not ready by 6. And the coordinator lady was even more of a bitch that at 11 she kicked the dj out b/c his time was up....even though they were late having our reception ready in time. The food was very good though and my cake was fabulous.

My favorite part of the night. Our DJ! Matt Coffer was FABULOUS. I can not say enough good things about him. I refused to use Complete after the 17 year old dj at my brothers wedding was out doing the worm and dance offs with his guests. Complete is not professional at all. Matt was fabulous though and very cheap.

that is where I bought all of my centerpieces since it was so cheap. Cheaper than at Michael's with coupons.

I used Distinctive Designs Florist in Pacific. The cheapest and the nicest I found anywhere in STL. The day of they did mess up some of our flowers by giving us the wrong flowers for the mothers, but they took money off what I owed. So I was happy.

Our photographer was great before the wedding. After the wedding he has been annoying with trying to get pics, the albums done etc.  He was pretty cheap consideringng all that we got and we had him all day with 2 photogs and our video too. Here is his website. Nick and I are featured on his website too. He just started re-doing his website, so not a whole lot is on it right now. We also are on page 91 in the St Louis Magazine for him.

I WOULD NOT USE THE ULTIMATE BRIDE. I ordered my BM dresses in December and I called in Jan to see when they would be in. THey forgot to order them, so they ordered them in Jan and told me no later than April 20 they would be in. Well April came and went and soon it was one week before our weddinng (may 30) and they finally came in. I called everyday, went up their and they were rude and liars. Alanya the store manager was a bitch. They altered them for free (which they should have at $260 a dress). But still coming in one week before the wedding is horrible.

Hope this helps you all out!

    Wow, sounds like your day was stressful, hectic, and just about everyone you encountered was, to quote, a bitch.  LoL  Hope married life is better than the circumstances that led up to it!  :-)
