First let me say if you can get past her incessant talking then you have survived half the battle. Jean refused to meet with us and some other crucial vendors for a big meeting. As such she was clueless to a lot of things on wedding day. She tried to blame everyone and everything but it was her fault for not showing up for the big meeting with the other vendors. Even still, I emailed her very specific directions. I even sent her the exact minutes I wanted everyone to walk down the aisle. On rehearsal day she did her own thing. I pulled her aside and asked about my timing to the music. She said and I quote "I'm going to just wing it." So basically I was going to be paying her to 'do her own thing'. I told her very firmly to follow my time line and to not just "wing it". I noticed she didn't have a watch on. --How can a wedding planner who is suppose to be TIME CONCIOUSE not have a watch or time piece?!!! We ended up having to let her only run the ceremony and not the reception as was planned. We had to hire a last minute wedding planner to run our reception. As Jean was getting an attitude and refusing to follow directions (you shouldn't have to feel like you need to cattle whip your own planner! Shes suppose to be a help, not a hindrance!) She even admits that she basically bailed out on her duties at the ceremony. She writes "I must admit the programs and aisle runner were put in place after guests were already seated." Even though in her lengthy contract that we signed these things were suppose to be done before the guests arrived. I know for a fact that she sat around for most of the morning chatting and bad mouthing us to another vendor! Had she once again decided to not be so long winded and obnoxiously chatty our ceremony site would have been set up 2hrs prior to our guests arrival per our contract and not as they were sitting down!!!!!?? Furthermore, she is on (wedding) website and made them take down my full review and lock my account out. Then she left a lengthy response to a cut down 2 sentence review. She then went and MADE UP brides!! to leave fake positive reviews so her star count would be higher. Shes extreamly vindictive! CAN NOT RECOMMEND THIS "VENDOR"!

Initially, I was happy with the planning stages. Everyone seemed helpful. My actual event, however, was awful. One of their employees STOLE MY WEDDING GIFTS!! In fact, the police report states, it WASNT THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED!!! The employees were in the photobooth that I rented for my guests WITHOUT PERMISSION, so my guests had to wait on them! They did not cut the cake properly, so my guest had to do it. The employees cleared the food and drinks before people were finished. They also cleared my favors without asking the guests and tried to keep the glasses I had etched for the bridal party with the individual's names. If I could rate a ZERO STAR, I WOULD!!

OMG! Sherry knows her photography. Short, tall, fat, skinny, doesn't matter cause Sherry will make you look fab in your pics. If you want a color photo in black & white she'll do it at no extra cost! I've used her for all my family's pictures for the last 5 yrs. I won't go anywhere else. She's met me at Tom Cloud park and snapped beautiful pics of my girls playing looking natural and sweet. We are always happy when we pick up our portraits!

You'll walk into Lillian's and feel like you're entering a spa! It's comfortable with relaxing music and a water feature to boot. Once your appointment starts, you'll be led to this amazing fitting room- 3 large mirrors to give you a great view of gown, curtain for privacy, and a private sitting room where family and friends can relax and enjoy. Kristen, the owner and the one who puts you in your gowns, will ask a few questions and then you're on your way. They send you out to look for any gown that catches your attention. Once you've made your picks you start trying them on. Kristen is a pro in reading body shape and getting you into a gown that will suit you best. I am petite and small framed and she knew immediately that I would need trumpet or mermaid. Because she was getting me into gowns that suited my body, I was able to feel better about my choices. Finally I found the one! There was an immediate celebration with all staff members and accessories were being tossed my way. By the end of my time there I was on such an emotional high due to the experience I had! Best part: My dress was only a little over $800! I was looking at a gown in Cincinnati for over $4,000 but thought that I'd look at Lillian's before committing! I feel in love with the way I looked and felt in the dress at Lillian's! And the magical experience they provide can't be given a price tag. Also, they have tuxes, MOB dresses, AND Bridesmaid dresses! Go check them out!

I WENT TO ATHENA'S BRIDAL AND HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE. THE GIRLS THERE WERE THE GREATEST AND VERY HELPFUL. THEN WHEN THE DRESS CAME IN THERE WAS SOME ALTERATIONS TO BE DONE. (LET'S FACE IT WHEN CAN A MANUFACTOR MAKE A DRESS THAT COULD FIT ANYONE CORRECTLY) THE SEAMTRESS I GOT WAS VERY SECURE IN HER KNOWLEDGE AND SHE EXPLAINED AS SHE PINNED WHAT THE DRESS WAS NEEDING TO FIT ME PROPERLY. SHE ALLOWED ME TO DECIDED WHAT I WANTED DONE. I FOUND THE ALTERATION COST TO BE REASONABLE . I CAN ASURE YOU THAT I WILL TELL ALOT OF PEOPLE TO GO THE ATHENA BRIDAL IN CENTERVILLE,OHIO.
