Modern dress rocks

AMAZING. A HIDDEN GEM. The staff is was so awesome and just made me feel like royalty. They let as many people as you want come in and enjoy that day with you and give you mimosas and all!! They have SO many dresses with all sorts of styles. I sent the staff a picture off Pinterest of what I was looking for and they had like 5 dresses waiting for me when I got there. Then I went and picked out a few more. It was so fun. My dress is perfect and beautiful. AND.... pricing was 100% the best ever. Very reasonable. I went to some other shops and was not impressed with the staff or the dresses. LOVE MODERN DRESS!
