    Absolutely perfect

    This is a walk in shop, so don't expect to have an appointment time to yourself, and also you may need to share the changing room when you go back out to pull more dresses. So I would recommend going during non peak hours. I went earlier on Saturday and there were only 3 brides including myself, but when I left, the store was very busy.
    The value is fantastic, most dresses are around 75% off retail, to make up for purchasing samples off the rack which will require a bit more $ in alterations, but for me, dress + alterations will still be under $600, but I did pick a dress that already fit me really well. Maybe I just got lucky, but I found an absolutely beautiful dress that fit me well, that was on double sale allowing me to move over $1500 from my original dress budget into other categories, making me one happy bride!
    I seriously recommend stopping by this shop, no matter what your budget is, because they have really great stuff!

    Wonderful, especially for the thrifty Bride

    I loved this shop! If going to boutique second hand stores is something you enjoy, then this is a great choice for you.

    The service was excellent, the ladies that worked there are knowledgeable and helpful. I usually wear a curvy size 6/8, but I was concerned how "dress sizing" was going to work. The ladies recommended starting with a size 10, 12, and 14 just to see how the fit was. I'm glad I did! We ended up going with a size 12 to fit my bust and hips, and there was plenty of selection to choose from. Brands, prices, and the condition were labeled clearly on the tags, which made knowing what you were getting so much easier.

    I was so happy to find my dress here! And it feels even better knowing that the money is going towards a great cause.
    Since everything is donated, I would recommend looking for dresses here with plenty of time before your wedding, and checking in frequently as the dresses change constantly.
