The absolute best bridal shop out there!
Modern Bride was my first appointment of the wedding dress shopping weekend and I am SO glad they were the first, they set the bar very high! They were timely on opening and were so friendly and welcoming and the entire store was so clean! Courtney was assigned to me and I will never be able to say enough good things about her, I absolutely LOVED her. She put my anxiety at ease and truly listened to my thoughts on what I liked and what I didn't like and offered her thoughts on where to start. After leaving for the day and going to the other appointments, no other shop measured up to Modern Bride. I ended up going back on Monday to try them on again. When I went back to try on the bottom two Courtney let me know she wouldn't be there but Michayla helped me and she was another AMAZING staff member and had everything ready to try on when I arrived and answered all my little questions about the dresses. I absolutely loved the one I chose and I would recommend every bride look no further for a bridal shop as Modern Bride is the absolute best out there! Thank you thank you thank you to the staff at Modern Bride for such a wonderful experience!!!!Sent on 11/17/2020

My time at Modern Bride was a dream come true. Very smooth, all options where brought to me with very little wait time. Everything was very organized, everyone was very complimentary and the options were endless. My whole wedding experience was made that day. I was able to find the dress of my dreams and search further into my wedding as I looked for suits and brides maid dresses. I felt so comfortable and haven't stopped smiling since finding my dream dress! So excited to see the final product!Sent on 06/22/2020

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
