on the Brideline site, but we also use it for contests and prize
giveaways." - Dan Licitra, president of Brideline
|"I purchased my copy
around May 1997 & LOVE IT!!! We are planning our own wedding
& neither of us knew what all was involved, what we needed
to arrange, etc. Your program has been a life saver, not to
mention the money we are saving since we don't need to hire
a consultant or get "ripped off" by settling for less
from vendors/services." - Brett Lushina

impressed of the capabilities of this software that you folks
have. I had tried others but found this 'the best of the best.'"

Companion(tm); and have to say, this is great!!! I was not looking
forward to all the grueling tasks involved in planning a wedding.

easier and fun--how it should be. I showed this to my fiancé
and he is just as excited as I am. THANK YOU for making my already
hectic life easier." - Pamela Olivier, future bride

for designing a wedding program that is easy to use and fun

program!!! Very organized! - Kristie A. Warman

out any other software I could find but because of all of the
features that you offer, along with an outstanding price, I
went straight back to your site and ordered right away."
- Lori, Lake Forest, CA

I downloaded two other wedding planning software and Wedding

task and the way I can monitor how many children will be in
attendance." - Suzanne O' Connor

about all the features that one can use in planning a wedding

others and was most impressed!" - Tina M Sult, So. Portland,

I plan to order immediately." - Richard Bishop

boards." - Lisa Chavez, bride-to-be

impressed with the software!" - Kim Magadia, San Leandro,

you know how much I like your product... I started to do some
organizing on my own (with WordPerfect), but started to amass
a fair amount of files, none of which interacted. (I'm sure
if I were a computer whiz, I could have, if I had the time).
Anyway, it has most of the features I was looking for, and I
enjoy the ease of use." - Elin Goldstein, planning bride

with the service and quick response your tech services have

because I found the software to be SO COMPLETE and helpful.
It is very professional and well-designed!" - Ruth Musher,
mother of the bride

in the same day and can't wait to get the real thing! Thanks!"

wedding planners and found yours to be the most thought out
and detailed overall." - Wesley Roark
|"This is a super package!"
- Tracy O'Daniel, Denver, CO
|"I cannot thank you
enough for your promptness to my e-mail request for a registration
number. I truly did not expect a response for several days.
Your response took less than 24 hours and within minutes of
receiving your e-mail with the registration number we started
"planning". In fact, we love the program more now
then ever since it is live data. A great feature is the importing
of guests which cut a 6 hour data entry process into a three
minute conversion from Microsoft Outlook." - Richard Kann,
|"I don't know why I
cannot find your program in ANY major computer store in Maryland.
Yours is very good; all I can find is a cruddy application that
is MILES behind yours." - John Donahue, Landsdowne, MD

thought of everything. Less I have to think about, and most
likely would have never thought about until it was too late.
Well thought out program!" - Joseph C. Orwat, Lancaster,
|"I am a wedding consultant
and I got an email about your program so I decided to try it.
It is THE BEST I have seen --and I have tried many. I plan on
purchasing the regular version for my files to show clients,
but I would like to let you know how impressed I was."

about your software! I bought 2 other highly-touted wedding

charts. Very convenient with everything at your fingertips!"
- Suzanne Paschen
|"You guys really did
a good job with this product. Once I discovered it I didn't
want to look any further for other competing products because
I have found exactly what I was looking for to help me plan
my wedding." - Jeff Stutz
|"My friends have bought
some other wedding packages from CompUSA and other retail stores,
but those packages did not nearly have as many features and
benefits as My Wedding Companion(tm);. In fact, they went ahead
and bought their own copy of My Wedding Companion because it
was so complete!" - Sandy Holloway, bride-to-be
|"Having the downloadable
version is a wonderful idea. We were looking for CD's from local
stores and decided that we liked your product the best simply
because we were able to test the interface as well as read about

order in the next day or so for my registration

planner for months... you guys are great :) Thanks!" -

Thanks, Five Star Software, for literally keeping me sane!!!"
- Mimi Tieu
|"On first look, the
package seems "slick", very thorough, very accommodating
to user-desired custom changes, and very, very intuitive!"
- R. Guffey
|"We have been looking
for wedding planner software for a couple of months and to our
amazement, we couldn't find it! We looked at a couple of our
local software stores and to no avail. Today, we found wedding
software, but when we tried to install, it failed! bad disk.
In our frustration I logged on to the net and browsed a software
library and to my joy I found your software! We looked at your
demo and love all the detail that is possible... Thanks for
being there!" - Nanci Gutierrez and Mark Padron

getting this copy for the person who is in charge of our reception.
He has been in catering for years and is now getting married.
He thought this sounded great so we are getting him a copy.
I hope he finds it as useful as we have." - John Welu,
Tecmark Services, Inc.
|Here is also an excerpt
from the Rachel's Ramblings Web page:
In September of 1996, I was informed of a software product called
"My Wedding Companion". Wanting to try it out, but
not having the time...I gave the job to nine of my friends.
These friends include six brides, one relative (who's engaged
but hasn't set the date) and two college students (who may have
an interest in it soon!). These people are all people whose
opinions I trust...but they usually never agree on anything!
With "My Wedding Companion", the vote was unanimous.
They all agreed that it was a good product...and I'll include
some of their comments. "I can't believe how easy [to use]
this was!", "I never ran across anything this program
didn't cover", "The only program that seems to be
compatible with my printer which means it doesn't waste my time"
(*note-she has an old (archaic?) printer and computer and has
had problems with other programs in the past for this reason*)
and finally all of them said "easy to use, lots of fun
and doesn't break the budget". While there were other comments,
it would take up too much space to list them all.
After working with "Emily Post's Guide to Weddings"
and after completing all my information and files, then getting
the lovely message of "your files are corrupt", I
was ready to cry. Not only did I get little to no help from
them, but my files were no longer accessible. When I was ready
to give up, I did a search on "weddings" on the net.
I came across your site, and was seeing light at the end of
a long tunnel. :)
When I called you up, I was treated very well. The woman
couldn't have been more kind. I had some difficulty installing
it, but the online manual was very complete and comprehensive.
I called your technical support for more info, and was greeted
by a man named Robert. He was very knowledgible in the software,
and walked me through to find the problem, after that, it
I wanted to share my happiness with you and commend you for
the outstanding customer service, and extra ordinary software.
If anything happens between today and 5/16/98, I have confidence
it will be o.k. Your slogan is 100% true. Keep up the good
Shelby Glodowski, Traxxter@aol.com
|"I always was a geat
fan of this program. You are to be congratulated on a fine piece
of work. Now that I have experienced the quality of your customer
support - I will whole-heartedly recommend this package to everyone
I know who is planning a wedding. Actually, I will end up using
this program for more than just my daughter's wedding. In my
work I often must plan large meetings - I think My Wedding Companion
will work well for this purpose also." - Gary Engstrom,
|"Thank you very much!!
I just love your product. It is by far the most useful item
I've purchased to plan my wedding." - Sandy Antezana, future
|"I found out about
the software while searching for info both on AOL and the internet.
After finding out about it, I asked other recently married friends
which/if any, planning software they had used. Of those that
had used software, those that were the happiest with their software
had used My Wedding Companion." - Kellee Dixon, Grand Rapids,
|"I ordered your wedding
planning software late last year to help in my planning for
my October wedding. I just wanted to tell you that it has been
most helpful in my planning! I'm right on track & your software
program has had a substantial role in helping me get there.
I compared several wedding planning software programs &
chose yours. I have not been disappointed with my decision!
Of all the purchases I've made for my wedding, your software
was probably the best buy in the long run when you consider
all the time & effort on my part that has been saved by
using it! Thanks again." - Sellena Sartu
will save a lot of headaches and arguments!" - Kristen
