    Wonderful Experience with Tammy!

    Tammy was wonderful to work with, I had two wonderful appointments with her where she made all of my wedding dress dreams come true. I greatly appreciate her flexibility and attention to detail. Highly recommend Kathryn’s and Tammy

    Very welcoming and helped find the perfect dress!

    Everyone at Kathryn’s was so welcoming! I loved that my guests and I got to look through the dresses and pick them ourselves. My consultant was very patient and happy to help me try on as many dresses as I needed to to find the one! I would recommend Kathryn’s to anyone who asked!

    Thank you Katia for your 5 star review! We're so excited to be a part of your journey from Miss to Mrs. XX Kathryn
