Firstlight offers Military discountsWith our business being located so close to Ft. Lewis & McCord Air Force Base we have had a chance to work with quite a few military couples.  We understand the difficulties a military couple can face when planning a wedding, from cost concerns to deployment.   Our military couples do not pay sales tax, so the price you see is the price you pay.   While we do require a deposit to hold your wedding date we understand that you may be deployed and this is something you can’t control.  At Firstlight we will allow you to change your wedding date due to deployment without any additional charge.  When you pick your new wedding date we just continue as before.  If for any reason we can not cover your new wedding date (we do have several photographers so this hasn’t been an issue)  we will refund your deposit.

Since most of our packages include an engagement session we allow you to use that session any way you like.  We have done bride only shoots, bride & groom as well as glamour shots after the wedding for the wife to send to her husband while deployed.  We even had a new bride want to make a calendar for her husband to take with him to Iraq.  You name it and we’ll help you do it.

For the bride that is looking for a great wedding dress, but is still looking for a great price we suggest checking out All That Shimmers in Lakewood.  The owner, Karen, has a great eye for picking out the perfect wedding dress, but first she will let you try on any dress you like.   Karen is a great help and a wealth of information so give her a call and schedule a time to see her or drop in.  Just a warning, dropping in on a Saturday can be very busy.  As further verification of how great Karen is to work with, All That Shimmers was voted the best bridal boutique by Evening Magazine and KING 5.
