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

Modern Bride is the place to go!
I had a lovely experience both times I visited Modern Bride this year. I just purchased a dress today (and for a steal, thanks to their Summer sale!!) Debbie Fortin helped us out immensely. She is kind, honest and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her services and this bridal shop!Sent on 07/23/2019

Amazing experience, this was the first place I ever went to and they were so nice and helpful! I only had a certain amount of time to try on dresses the first time because I had another appt somewhere else, the girl that was helping me said good luck even though it was somewhere else. I ended up going back there and finding my dress! She helped me pick what I liked, out and if I tried something on and didn’t like it, she wouldn’t bring back another one that was like it! Highly highly recommend!Sent on 12/05/2017
