Hi all! I posted vendor reviews on my Google pages site here: http://sites.google.com/site/geekchicbride/vendor-reviews
You can also see photos there too, and I’ll put DIY instructions on there soon.
I reviewed the following Philly vendors: Cakes by Suzy, Flowers by Mary Elizabeth, Synergetic Sounds (DJ/lighting), Fairmount String Quartet, Wertz Motor Coach (guest shuttle bus), cHill Weddings (wedding planning), Dollface Studios (boudoir photography)
I also reviewed the following Delaware vendors: Delaware Museum of Natural History (venue), Toscana Catering, Roadrunner Express (towncars), Jennifer’s Bridal, Sherif Zaki Salon and Day Spa.
And a few more virtual vendors (Etsy sellers, Citywrites calligraphy, Vertallee Letterpress, etc.).
I also have a Knot Bio, but I’m a Knot noob, so it’s not as nice as the Google pages site: http://community.theknot.com/cs/ks/user/page.aspx?username=geekchicbride
Hope these help! Please contact me if you have any questions.

First of all let me say congrats!! Also great work on your vendor reviews. I’m actually getting married at Winterthur in May’09, but I’m planning it from Hershey PA! It’s been crazy!! But I was wondering, how did you get that price for your hotel rooms? We are staying there bc its in outrpackage, but with blocking 50 rooms, they would only give me te rooms at 129.00. Did you do the website with them?

Thanks, MsGirard! I can’t wait to see all of the photos either! =) Hopefully in a few weeks…
Hi prettyinpnk! My mom called the Sheraton, asked them what their room block rates were, and they gave her the $115 price. I signed the contract in January. They locked that price in until ~3 weeks before the wedding. Have you been talking to Denise Grose at the Sheraton Suites? She was my contact and she was really nice. I would just tell her that you’ve talked to another bride who booked her room block through the Sheraton and got the $115 rate. Maybe she’ll bargain with you. I know that my guests were really pleased with the bang for their buck — I was too, the rooms were really nice! What do you mean "did I do the website with them?" Denise did set up a website especially for our guests, and I linked to that website to our wedding website and our blog. Is that what you’re talking about?
Please let me know if I can help at all with anything else!

Hey rebecca, we got married in the same day!! Nice reviews! I also want to create a bio at theknot. But i haven’t figured out how yet. Can you give me some tips. Thanks!
I used mary elizabeth too…but i was very disappointed that she couldn’t show up in my wedding because she had to go to another wedding herself…Now i know it was your wedding. 🙂 Yeah, i agree with your comments with mary’s work. I am disappointed with her assistant who basically went panic when we decided to move the ceremony venue from outdoors to indoors because of rain.

Hi yirisant! I just sent you a PM with info about creating your own Knot bio.
So sorry Mary Elizabeth didn’t work out for you! I had such high hopes after reading reviews like Mrs. Bell Pepper’s, but she was way less detail-oriented than I had expected, considering how my mom and I spelled everything out for her. =(
