    Promising review: "If you are looking for an outdoor-safe confetti, this is for you! It was very important to me that my confetti pictures at my wedding were not going to hurt the local wildlife or environment. This rice paper made a beautiful white confetti for pictures. It sprinkled later in the afternoon at my wedding, and all of the rice paper just dissolved! There wasn't any clean up. Running a hose or throwing a pitcher of water on the confetti is all the clean up you need if there isn't any rain. It produced a good amount of confetti from the cannon, and there wasn't anything that shot out of it other than the rice paper. I would 100% recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This dress is absolutely beautiful and fits as expected. I love it very much!! The seller was very easy to communicate with and I couldn't ask for better service. They are also very quick to get back to you. The fact that they customized the dress to fit my measurements and that they even adhered to my request and personalized the dress for me so that the back had a lining was the cherry on top!!! I can't THANK Honeyveil enough for their great customer service, quick delivery, and overall excellent quality of their product. I wore the dress to a recent event and the compliments were endless. As a satisfied customer, I recommend Honeyveil and will be buying from them again in the future!!" —Mary

    Promising review: "This stand was exactly what I was needing to set up wedding cupcakes, plus the anniversary tier. Assembly was easy and it turned out beautiful. It does seem a bit wobbly, so I had to make sure I had the cupcakes even for the weight. The price point was also really great considering they were double and triple priced at Walmart and Michael's! The stand breaks down easily for storage and it even comes with a bag to store it in. I’ll be using this in the future for birthdays and other events I host." —BaileyCarey
