A Joyful, Personal Experience
I chose Kathryn's Bridal because they're a local business, are LGBTQ-friendly, and carry plus-size sample sizes. I could not be happier with the service I received there. I worked with Lanna, who is super knowledgeable, practical, helpful, and friendly. She helped relieve my anxiety about dress shopping and made the experience fun for me and my three guests. I felt safe with the covid precautions they had in place. I was also able to find a dress under budget, along with a beautiful belt and veil, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase or with my experience at Kathryn's.Sent on 10/05/2020
Kathryn's Bridal's reply:Thank you Jessie for your wonderful review and shopping local! We're so glad you found our environment friendly, safe and stress free! We truly enjoyed working with you and your guests. The dress, veil and belt you selected were beautiful on you for your special day! Congratulations. xox Kathryn
