    • Wedding: May 2010

    Here are mine (many TBD so I will update later) for my May 30, 2010 wedding.  It would really be helpful to me if people would somehow annotate whether they liked their vendor or hated them or just thought they were ok.  Maybe a star system? 1 out of 5 stars?  Also, what about the groom’s and groomsmen’s attire?  I’d love to know about that as well.

    • location: Wellesley, MA
    • Number of guests: 180
    • Reception Venue:
    • Photographer:
    • Cake:
    • DJ/Music: The Boston Commond Band
    • Florist:
    • Hair & Makeup:
    • Dress:
    • Bridesmaids: J Crew
    • Rehearsal Dinner: Bacco
    • Shoes:
    • Hotel: Onyx (we’re blocked at Onyx and the Bullfinch)

    • Wedding: October 2009

    Here are mine.  Links are to my reviews of them:

    I’m afraid I can’t help with groom’s or groomsmen’s attire, though.  We had no groom (it being a same-sex wedding), and our one male attendant wore a suit he already owned.
