I honestly could not have imagined a better experience than at Modern Bride. Michayla was absolutely amazing, this was my first day dress shopping and I ended up finding my dress. I started my day off at another bridal shop and it was terrible, I felt rushed, they didn't listen to me and I was nervous that this is what it was going to be like...I was so wrong. As soon as I walked into Modern Bride I felt welcomed, Michayla listened to what I had to say and asked all the right questions. She made the whole experience unforgettable and I can not say enough wonderful things. Thank you for making this experience every thing I could have ever wanted.Sent on 10/30/2019

We found the perfect wedding dress for my daughter at Modern Bride. Courtney was soooo helpful and amazing. We described what my daughter was looking for, and she found the perfect dress. She was patient, kind and very helpful. She made it a wonderful experience.Sent on 10/16/2019

Friendly, professional, fun, and supportive
Today Michayla helped me find the perfect dress and I had the BEST experience. She was kind, encouraging, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable. I never once felt pushed, pressured, or rushed. She was genuinely friendly, and her positive demeanor and bright smile helped me feel calm and confident. The store was well lit, peaceful, and clean. I loved that my family and I had the chance to wander the aisles and look through the HUGE selection of gowns, while also having the support and undivided attention of a consultant. The gown I fell in love with was one that Michayla pulled for me, and I am so grateful that she found EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thank you Modern Bride & Formal Shop, and especially Michayla! You made me feel like a queen, and I cannot stop smiling.Sent on 12/11/2019
