    Everything I Could Have Dreamed Of

    Francesca’s Bridal had the BEST selection of dresses when I was looking for the perfect boho meets modern gown for my wedding. They took the time to listen to the styles I knew I liked and the ones I knew I didn’t like. They never tried to pressure me into a dress that I wasn’t overly thrilled about which made the choice so easy when I found the one! The moment I put my
    dress on in the shop I knew it was the perfect one for me. They were so helpful throughout the entire process which really made me feel good about choosing them as the place to buy my gown. I love that they’re a family-owned and run business it just gave it such a more welcoming feeling when visiting the shop. I am so happy that I found my dream dress at Francesca’s!

    A very, very happy bride!

    I made an appointment with Francesca's Bridal to view the selection of the Wilderly Bride trunk show last weekend.

    I want to start off by saying I had no idea what I style I wanted and had zero expectations that they'd have something I'd fall in love with. I was completely open to "leaving it to the professionals".

    My MOH and I were greeted and checked in moments after we arrived. Kara Moro brought us champagne while we waited and let us know that she would be with us momentarily. While waiting, we browsed the gowns in the trunk show and I picked out a few to try on.

    It was my turn to begin trying on dresses. I disliked one or two elements of every gown I picked out and was growing frustrated. Yes-you read that right; from the girl who had zero expectations coming into this, I was growing frustrated that I wouldn't be able to find a gown.

    Kara brought me a few more gowns and asked me to tell me what I liked and disliked about them. Not only did Kara voluntarily fan me with a wedding magazine to cool me off while I was trying on dresses, she patiently worked with me and critically listened to what I liked and disliked about every gown I tried on. The last gown she hung up is a very, very special gown. You are probably not going to believe me when I tell you this but Kara found the dress I fell in love with!

    I had a 5-star experience from the moment I walked into Francesca's until the moment I left. Kara and the rest of Francesca's are phenomenal and I will recommend this salon time and time again. Thank you all for making my first bridal appointment such a wonderful experience!

    beautiful gowns & experience!

    Francesca's is such a beautiful bridal boutique with so many options to choose from and all at reasonable prices! The staff is wonderful and made shopping such a great experience even during Covid! I decided to buy my veil from them and I cannot express how happy I was with it. They held it & kept it safe while I was moving and unpacking, they had it pressed and ready for my big day!
