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

My experience at Modern Bride was nothing short of perfect. Thank you to Michayla for being an absolute gem, never once making me feel rushed or stressed. I found my dress and could not be happier! And a special thanks to Debbie for a great measurement experience!! I will recommend Modern Bride to all of my friends.Sent on 10/19/2019

I had a blast shopping for my dress at Modern Bride with Delaney - she was wonderful to work with, so welcoming and kind. Based on the survey I'd filled out with my style/detail preferences, Delaney was already well-versed in what I was looking for. She walked us through the racks, explaining how the dresses were organized and gave me the perfect amount of time to take it all in before going to try some dresses I had picked out. She was just great to work with all-around, and my mom and sister felt the same way. I did end up finding my dream dress and would recommend Modern Bride to anyone searching for theirs! They were professional, inviting and very experienced with a great selection of gowns for every budget.Sent on 02/19/2019
