PRE WEDDING

Bridal Shower: The Coral House, Baldwin
A+

LOVED my surprise bridal shower. My Mom planned and threw my bridal shower. It was beautiful! The Coral House room was really pretty and the food was good.  Not much more to say other than my bridal party and Maid of honor were great! My Mom went above and beyond and I can’t thank my guests enough for their generous gifts!

AugustFeather



Will You Be My... Cookies: red Bud Cookies
A+
I wanted a unique way of asking my BM's, MOH, FG and RB to be in our bridal party and decided to do cookies. I can't tell you how much I LOVED how they came out!! So much detail and everyone flipped over them!!

AugustFeather




Engagement Photos: Patken
A

My husband and I wanted to do something different and very personal with this. We decided to have the photos done at our home! I could not be happier with the results. We worked with Jessie from Patken and she was just great! I requested Jessie after browsing here on LIW at photos. I was always drawn to her work without even realizing it was hers. I love our e-pics! The shoot was part of our wedding package but they charge a bit for location shoots and also charge for a CD of all the images.

Rehearsal Dinner : La Foccacia, Levittown
A+

Such a fun time! This restaurant is very cozy with amazing food. They accommodated my 30+ guests beautifully. They had live music that night and the singers even had my husband and I come up for a little slow dance. Very sweet! We stayed for hours and were not rushed out. Affordable too!


Bachelorette Party: Sweet Revenge, LIPS NYC, various bars NYC 
A+

I loved my bachelorette party! I chose the locations myself and found that it was the easiest way to get everyone together and in communication.  My sister (MOH) surprised everyone that night by taking care of all the bills.. extremely beyond generous of her to do this!
Sweet Revenge, NYC
A
We started out at Sweet Revenge in NYC for cupcakes, wine and beer! Love this place but it is VERY small. They didn’t have enough room for us to all fit comfortably, but they have benches out front, so we were in and out a bit. I should have called ahead since there were about 15 of us. 
LIPS, NYC
A+
Soooo much fun! from the second we stepped in I loved the decor. They sat us front and center, so we had an amazing view of the drag queen show. They were all amazing! The food is OK, but i wasn’t really expecting some fabulous cuisine. Burgers were good though! It’s definitely geared towards soon to be brides!

Dress:
Maggie Sottero Dress: A+
Bridal Suite Bayshore: C

I LOVE LOVE my dress! I tried on probably about 30 dresses or more before I found this gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress. I made some modifications. I added an embellished belt and made the neckline sweetheart.
I gave the dress shop a C for the following reasons. When I first went there the sales woman was very nice. We wound up striking a deal where they gave me a little discount of bridesmaid dresses if I ordered my gown there. I thought great! Well, I made an appointment for ALL of my BM's to come a try dresses and look etc. We got almost NO help that day and the girls were putting dresses on by themselves with no assistance from my saleswoman. One of my girls was pregnant so they measured by her bust and said it would be fine. Fast Forward after the order is placed I call about 2 months before my wedding to see if the girls dresses were in.. they said they were ( they didn't notify any BM's or me, I got a postcard several days later). I then ask when they though MY dress would be in and they gave me a time of 3 weeks before the wedding. We had paid a "rush" charge at the time we ordered and they assured me the dress would be in about 6 weeks before the wedding. I panicked a little, the girl assured me all the modifications etc.. would be done in time for the wedding. I panicked again and called back.. spoke to another girl who said that is NOT enough time. She told me the rush was never put through etc.. she wound up calling and getting it in on time. I had to go there 3 times for fitting etc. My final fitting was 5 days before the wedding and the alterations were a mess. The top was too big and bunching. I decided that day to add the belt detail. They told me to come back in 5 hours to do everything AND press it!! I went back to see the dress was never pressed, the whole lining was wrinkled. Waited another 30 mins and finally it was done. I will NEVER go back! My dress was great after all was said and done.. but I was very unhappy with their poor service and bad timing. As for BM dresses: My Mom picked up 3 of the dresses. One had an oil stain on it and one other was about 2 sizes to small for my pregnant BM who had the baby already! Long story short, they would not do anything about the dresses since we took them for the shop etc. and planned on using a family friend as their seamstress.

Veil/Feather head piece: Barrons
B+

Love the veil! I had the veil custom made and I love how it came out. I found that doing a custom veil there was not too easy… I wasn't given too many ideas, so I had to keep asking to see certain elements. Several months later, I went there to pick it up but the veil it was not laying on my head flat, it was bucking on both sides near the clip in the middle. I had to ask them to fix it etc.. They did and it looked great. but that took another week. I love the feather clip. I changed into that for the reception. The clip was not very sturdy though and I had a tough time getting it to stay in. Used alot of pins but it worked out.

AugustFeather



Tuxedos: S&S, Hicksville
A+

We walked into S&S pretty clueless about tuxedos! Our salesman was great. He showed and explained all of the various styles of tux's and was super nice. We finally chose the style and colors. Our groomsmen all had great experiences when they went for their measurements. My husband looked amazing in his tux! Their discounts were great!

THE WEDDING!

Ceremony: St. Ignatius, Hicksville NY
C

This has been my church since my Christening. It is a gorgeous church but sadly I wasn’t happy with our ceremony.
It was extremely hard for us to get in touch with our Deacon for months before the wedding. I called over and over, left messages etc. to get info about pre-cana and just general info about the wedding. We finally met with our Deacon who was very nice, but completely unavailable most of the time. We did pre-cana outside of this parish which was fine. We had our rehearsal the week prior to the wedding and things seemed like they would be great. Day of the wedding the Deacon made several mistakes and overall it was not at all what I expected. The first words out of his mouth he called me Kathleen.. this is not my name! I was immediately shocked. He  messed up our candle lighting ceremony and failed to call my Mom up, I had to wave her to come up.  When he told us to kiss it was never announced.. “You may kiss the bride” or anything like that.. I had no clue when we were actually “married”! He then told a story which was very long and talked about his “gangrenous gall blatter” . Way too DETAILED and long! He never mentioned he would be telling this personal story! FINALLY he then announced us as Mr. & Mrs.. and of course butchered our last name. Really not happy with how that went, but hopefully we can look back and laugh one day!

AugustFeather



Reception: Jericho Terrace
A+

From the moment we walked it to see if Jericho Terrace could be our reception hall to the moment we walked out after our wedding we were treated as royalty! I really can’t say enough good things about how great our reception was. The service, food, ambience, professionalism etc. were above and beyond! Our guests are raving about how much they loved our wedding. Our reception was in the Dome Room and it was GORGEOUS!! The built in lighting was so impressive and really set the whole mood of the wedding! My husband and I could not be more happy with Jericho Terrace! Viennese hour was spectacular!! Our bridal attendants were so great, I honestly cannot say one bad thing about JT! It was a dream!

AugustFeather



Makeup: Oksana
A+

Just like most reviews about Oksana.. I LOVE HER! I cannot stress enough that she is a true artist. I first met with her for a trial and wound up talking to her for hours. What she did with my trail was just amazing. She completely understood what I was looking for and took it to the next level! I had a second session with her for my engagement photos. She did a completely different look and it was equally as artistic and amazing! Come wedding day, she was on time and professional. She did my Mom’s MU, MOH and 2 BMs. Everything was timed perfectly and everyone looked absolutely GORGEOUS! I can’t say enough positive things about her. 

AugustFeather



Hair: Kim from Salon Domane
A+

After a long search and 3 trials I finally found Kim! She is a great hair stylist. I was looking for a stylist who could accomplish a looser curl and down style with a little vintage flair. Kim nailed it! She did my MOH’s hair and she looked great as well! She was a sweetheart and alot of fun to work with too!

Photography: Patken - Jessie
A+

Jessie was great day of the wedding. She was on time and she gets right in there and down to business! She is funny and professional all at the same time. We met with her before the wedding and I gave her a pretty large list of “must-have photos” she didn’t even blink at it and said.. no problem! I was happy that she remembered alot of specific shots I had asked for the day of, because I was so scattered I never would have remembered all the shots we wanted! My proofs were ready in about 3.5 weeks and are AMAZING!! I love just about all of them. I can't wait to start creating my album! We got almost 700 printed proofs and all images on a CD.

AugustFeather



Videographer: Treasured Memories,
B-

Flowers: Hidden Essence
A+

I met with a few florists and I thought some of them were outright ridiculous with their prices. I was only looking to have bouquets done and I finally found Michelle at Hidden Essence. She was extremely personable, had great ideas and didn't try to hustle me! I wanted feathers incorporated and she did an amazing job with it! She even threw in my Mom's corsage which was stunning!!

Centerpieces: FeatherCenterpieces . com
A+

We knew from the beginning Feathers would play a huge role with centerpieces. After a ton of searching around I finally found a company that rents them. They were gorgeous! I feel they really set the whole vibe at first glance into the reception room. Very happy with how they turned out!

AugustFeather



Music: Bravura
A+

I was so excited when we met with Bravura. I had read a ton of great reviews about them and I have to say… they are all true! They are true professionals. They had our dancefloor packed the entire night. They added in the various music we really wanted at the reception and it all just flowed beautifully! We had a steel drummer for cocktail hour. My husband and I unfortunately didn't get a chance to see him, but everyone said he was great!

AugustFeather



Transportation: Cruise Control, Lindenhurst
A+

We decided to go with the white trolley. I fell in love with it instantly! Not much to say other than they did exactly what they were supposed to do! Great service all around!!

AugustFeather



Photobooth: Incredibooths
A
I looked into a few companies before they were recommended to me on the forum pages. Our guests had such a fun time using the booth, I am so happy we got one! They gave me an upgraded white booth for the day and also some props. They provided an attendant that night who had guests sign a book and add a photo strip in plus we got a disc with all the images at the end of the night.

DIY: Monogram for photobooth strip:
