@szaerpoor: Photographer I know of 2 who are really good! Magic Moments Photography and Lindsey Wiatt Photography They both have facebook pages and are still pretty new to weddings so their prices are pretty good!

Dress shopping I cant help you much because I still havent found mine

This place is awesome, I went to about 7 salons in 3 different states(Wa, Id, Or) and they were the best with no one else coming close. i would have done a review for them on here but you have to be married.

This was the first place that I got to really pull my own dresses, I probably tried on atleast 10. They have a crazy awesome selection and are completely no presure sales people. My consultate was pretty much they one who kept telling me that I would know if the dress was the one and to just enjoy the expierence.

Long story short I bought my dress from them, which was like $200 under list price(It was a maggie sottero and I did crazy amounts of research)

Anywho, that is really my only Or vender since we are moving to Seattle a month before the wedding(which is in seattle conveniatly) Good luck and congradulations!!

i absoluetly loathe bridal exclusive ..they have been rude,lied to me bout my dress arrival, sold sample dress of mine before my acessory appointment didnt call and say dont come we dont have ur dress anymore. as soon as my dress comes im taking it home and not dealing with them again.

camera art is my photographer

helen bernheart bakery– beaverton bakery was rude and very restrictive

dj myles reck is our dj

embassy suites tigard for reception.

brides maid dresses–davids bridal– ask for amanda- she is awesome

mr formal for guys attire– menswarehouse rubbed fiance wrong. they were stuck up and rude

 

floralevent is our florist… im gonna hold my mouth shut on her right now since she was really good at communicating but now it has changed. if she gets her communication problems figured out and does everything i asked for i will be happy.. she was my “middle of the budget-quote so hopefully it goes well

@szaerpoor:  clackamas… so went there first for my hunt for dress.. i told my bridesmaids take photos and i will pick when i get home. cuz i didnt want to rush into buying dress- sales associate siad photography is not allowed. i said fine what ever. tried on bout 5 or 6 dresses. sixth dress was the one- got all emotional. she said u can take pictures now.. bridesmaids were shock and cameras started going. she then said i need to put 50% down because i took photos… so had to call fiance up tell him price and post date a check for a day so i can get the amount to cover the check in my account.. then we did a second appointment for accesories i didnt know how i was doing my hair so i just said i would come back with an idea of what i need. third appointment i show up and they said they lost/sold the sample dress so i drove from beaverton to clackamas at rush hour for an appointment i couldnt do and they didnt call and tell me before hand that the dress i was trying to accesorize isnt there.  then there was a snafu about my store credit- i ended up over paying 315 so i was suppose to get store credit. i called and asked if they could just refund me and they said first i didnt have a store credit 10 minutes later they said o we found the note in ur account we can mail it to u or put it back. they put it back to the bank account quickly. a week later i called to ask the progress of dress one sales associate said my dress would be here within the week. no phones one week later i call back and they said my dress hasnt left the factory and wont be here til febuary. she leaughed and said i would be really lucky if it came mid febuary but dont hold my breath.

I had an absolutely fantastic experience dress shopping at Xtabay vintage. You get the entire bridal salon to yourself and your bridesmaids during your appointment. Also, I found an absolutely gorgeous dress for $500! All of their dresses range from $200-$900, making it definitely budget friendly. The salon is absolutely beautiful.  Here is a photo:
