Wonderful experience. My daughter went into Mary Carol's shop and within 10 minutes had the dress she had been looking for for over 9 months! Mary Carol went out of her way to make my daughters wedding dress everything she wanted it to be! I recommend her to everyone that we hear is planning a wedding.
