Quality of Service

FANTASTIC! I went there one day with my mom, MOH and future mother in law, we went through so many dresses and the sales associates were on top of providing feedback and suggestions without being pushy. They were great about the MANY dresses I tried on and gave their honest opinions, they all made me feel at ease. They allowed my mom to take as many pictures as she wanted (many other shops don't allow this), this was great because after going to about 5 different dress stores and trying on close to 50 dresses they all became a blur so being able to look back at pictures was a huge help. I left the shop undecided but with a few favorites, again the sales associates were gracious and not pushy and encouraged me to call with any questions. I ended up returning the next day (which happened to be when Hurricane Sandy hit), I went just with my mom and when we got there the weather was just starting to get worse, Odessa was the only person in the shop and was upbeat and pleasant. When we asked if we should leave because of the storm she simply said no and that as long as the power stayed on we could stay as long as we wanted. Odessa asked if I wanted to try on some of my prior favorite dresses, I had a change of heart and decided I wanted to start my search from scratch, expecting her to give me an eye roll or a huff and puff like other stores did, she instead looked at me with a smile and said "Great! Let's start looking!" I tried on a bunch of dresses and eventually found 'the one'. As soon as I looked at it, I said yup this is it! I have since been in multiple times to get a veil and jewelry and they have been nothing but amazing. I got a handwritten letter from Odessa after I found my dress saying what a pleasure it was to work with me and how happy she was for me, this was such a thoughtful and personal touch, it made you feel like more than just a number or just another bride. The seamstress there worked magic! Don't waste your time.. Just go to Modern Bride!
