    Excellent for Alterations

    I can't say enough amazing things about Michelle. I would give her 10 stars if I could. I only got my alterations done here, but they were amazing. I purchased my dress from another salon and was unable to get alterations done there. I saw Michelle recommended in a local group and I contacted her about my alterations. We scheduled a consultation for the following week. She is amazing at whst she does, she is truly so talented. She fixed everything that needed to be fixed: took in the bust, hemmed the dress, and did a bustle. The lace on the dress was extremely detailed, and you would never know she had to hem it. Everything was perfect. She was so flexible with the dates for all 3 appointments. She responded to messages quickly and was always there to answer questions. In my opinion, her prices are great. She steamed my dress and held it until the day before my wedding, as I didn't have anywhere I could keep it. She even steamed my veil for me, as well. She took a video of how to do the bustle so my mom and bridesmaids knew exactly what to do. She is so nice and professional and amazing at what she does. I don't have any personal experience with her custom dresses, but if they are anything like her alterations work, I'm sure they're incredible!

    Dreams Came True after meeting Michelle

    I was referred by a friend that had her dress designed by McEllis Brides. My vision was far from traditional and I'm a bigger girl so the shape of the dress had to be flattering. I came in with some example pictures and discussed material, color, etc. The dress I had my heart set on was re-created by Michelle and everything I could dream of. I'm so in love with my dress I'll have to wear it again some day. It's just too perfect. Also, must add she is a perfectionist and if something looked slightly off she would take the time to fix it.

    Last Minute White Dress

    Michelle is amazing! I had purchased a champagne coloured, gorgeous wedding dress many months ago but when our wedding date changed so that my fiance would be wearing his black and white uniform, I had to switch to white… Michelle was the first shop I went into and the first dress was perfect! She made needed alterations with only two weeks before the wedding. I highly recommend her!
