    The best place to find a dress!

    I went to Modern Bride to look at wedding dresses with my mom and sisters this weekend and had such a great experience! The staff was so friendly and the facility was very organized and clean. I had the pleasure of working with Hanna and she so sweet and attentive the entire time. I highly recommend this bridal shop to any bride looking for their dress!

    Fantastic service and a great selection of dresses

    My experience at Modern Bride was absolutely fantastic. I had Danielle assisting me and she was spot-on in picking out dresses that flattered me and were the style and material that I wanted. I was on a budget and nervous that I wouldn't be able to find anything that I liked within my price range, but she was so knowledgeable and I found the perfect dress only 4 dresses into my appointment. I highly recommend Modern Bride!
