  • Congratulations, it is *beautiful*!!  Sophisticated and still very fun!  I absolutely love it - a real stunner!
  • I have a bridesmaid dress from HCTB and while the sample was great, the quality of my actual dress was terrible.  You should think about going to Bloomingdales or Lord & Taylor and looking for a dress that everyone likes and looks good in - the …
  • Sorry to hijack the post - just wanted to respond to linaxz - I'd be happy to email you some photos if you want to share your email address...
  • I think Saks might be an exception regarding trunk shows, maybe because of the credit card promotion.  When I tried on dresses at the Vera Wang Salon and the Carolina Herrera Salon during trunk shows, they each offered 10% off on all their dresses, …
  • I vote for the Hudson Theatre, not because your guests won't have fun at the Waldorf, but because I think it's more unusual than a hotel ballroom, and so gives you the opportunity to make the event more creative and more about you.  But the Waldorf …
  • Now I'm so curious which photographer you had the phone meeting with!  $12K is definitely high - some of the most published photogs in the city are a little less than that.  I think of mid-range as being $4500-6500, not including albums or engagemen…
  • Maybe see if Sequoia, a restaurant on the water at South Street Seaport, has a private room or floor that you can use... you can also try Bubby's Brooklyn, which has a great view of the water, even if it isn't directly over the water.
  • Make sure you find out what's included in the price - how many hours, what cost for extra hours, how many shooters/assistants, whether you get online access to your photos, whether you get or can purchase the negatives or digital images at full reso…
  • I second the recommendation for Bud Maltin!  They were fantastic, everyone was dancing, a pleasure to deal with, and not at all pushy.  I think if you had 7 or 8 members in the band, you could keep it within your budget.
  • Adrienne from Bespoke Affairs - you won't believe how much she will do for you at a really fantastic price.  She's done some beautiful, elegant weddings - you can try paging jamiedanielle, who used her for her gorgeous Capitale wedding not that long…
  • Check out Opia Restaurant, on 57th and Lex. I had my 80 person rehearsal dinner there on a Saturday night and it was fantastic. Reasonably priced (less than $100 a person),  beautiful lounge with brick walls, comfy couches and big windows for cockta…
  • Check out Adrienne from Bespoke Affairs - she is an amazing person who will go the extra mile for you!
  • I cancelled my venue and got a full refund four and a half months before my wedding, and they didn't make a fuss about it at all, but it was really their fault - it was the BBG, they had told us when we booked that the cherry blossom festival was al…
  • Congratulations! I remember thinking about you two years ago today, happy that the weather was great and hoping that the carnival worked out okay!  Hope you two are doing something special to celebrate.
  • I used Sterling Affair (worked with Peter on the pricing, who owns the company, and negotiated the price a little since we wanted three courses instead of four, and a dessert instead of wedding cake), and it was way, way less than the quotes you see…
  • This seems an hour short to me - when I was looking, everyone offered one hour for the ceremony (some of that is everyone arriving and getting seated, and the processional and recessional takes longer than you would think), one hour for the cocktail…
  • What an evil saleslady!  I think you just had the bad luck to come accross a very unpleasant person who delighted in making you feel bad the first time you went dress shopping, don't take it to heart! Among all the other good suggestions, you should…
  • I think it really depends on how comfortable you are paying an extra $10K, and how certain you are having the wedding in December.  If those two things are no problem, I say definitely go with Option B.  It sounds more gracious, like a better fit fo…
  • Bella figura makes super cute ones, but I don't have any personal experience with them. My invites were from Ceci too - did you have a fun experience?  Are you happy with your invites?  What do they look like?
  • I looked at it for my very-large rehearsal dinner.  The prices were excellent and the staff was responsive and seemed very accommodating.  The private room is large and has a fire place and I think iron chandeliers.  For us, it didn't have the vibe …
  • I asked questions about how many waiters per guests, how many bartenders, how many chefs, how many captains, etc.; whether they had worked in my venue before (this was a requirement) and if so, how often and how recently; whether they foresaw any pr…
  • I used Bridal Gal for make-up at my wedding, she did mine, my sister's, my mother's and my mother in laws; she also did everyone's make-up at my sister's wedding the year before.  We were all thrilled with her, at both weddings!  I loved the airbrus…
  • Check out Bubby's in Dumbo, Brooklyn, it might be perfect for you.  It has incredible views of the Brooklyn Bridge and downtown Manhattan.  You can have the ceremony outside in the Empire-Fultan State Park that is right outside the restaurant.  The …
  • Stacey Ilyse made my parent albums for me - they are Leather Craftsman, so formal albums of a high quality.  Both sets of parents were totally thrilled with the albums.  She gave me a very competitive price (compared to others I contacted) for an 8x…
  • City Bride - so nice to see you on here again!  And just like you, I haven't finished my album either!  I'm almost done, but can't quite seem to finalize it... Hope you're doing great, and happy one anniversary!
  • Hi Everyone, Adrienne told me there was someone asking about Angel Orensanz - I'm happy to answer questions... I absolutely loved it!
