    Wonderful experience finding my wedding dress and renting tuxedos!

    Very friendly & helpful! My wedding dress was the perfect style, fit, and color thanks to them. Renting tuxedos for the groom & groomsmen was very easy. We had two tuxedos (2 out of 6 tuxes) that were not fitted correctly, but Memories was able to fix that at the fitting. All around a great place to work with.

    An amazing shopping experience!

    I had a bridal appointment on 12/30/19. I went in knowing about how much I wanted to spend, and knowing I wanted to look and feel like a princess. I was paired with Mae as my consultant, who was absolutely fabulous. I was genuinely a bit terrified to shop for a dress, but Mae made me feel so comfortable and was easy to talk with. She also didn’t rush or pressure me one bit. She spent nearly 2 hours putting me in out of dresses. I ended up buying the very first dress I tried on, Mae picked out a belt to add some sparkle to the dress, and also placed the perfect veil on my head. I truly felt beautiful. Shopping at Memories was truly a great experience, and I think they are blessed to have someone like Mae on their staff. I’m so happy I’m a Memories Bride!

Memories is a professional, locally owned boutique store with amazing options - located in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo. Over the past decade, many of the brides who hire me as the photographer for their big day also trust Memories to provide a beautiful wedding dress and bridal attire. I have only heard glowing shared-client reviews of Memories. Selfishly, I am always excited to hear a bride has selected Memories because it makes my job enjoyable when everyone looks great. I highly recommend Memories to anyone looking for bridal or event attire.
