Finally found my perfect wedding dress here!
I went to 5 popular & highly rated Bridal salons in LA twice over two weekends and couldn't find the dress I felt that "Ah!" moment with. Most of the sales people were pretty pushy to get me to buy a dress I wasn't really happy with. I honestly was starting to lose hope that I would find the perfect dress and would just have to settle. Then I found NWLA! Nadia, the owner of NWLA, is the nicest, sweetest, most calming person. She didn't pressure me at all to try on dresses I didn't like or to buy ones that looked good on me that I wasn't 100% in love with. Also by the way, she is stunning! She has great taste and is honest with you. She was also the only bridal salon that had this one specific Pronovias dress I was looking for that we both absolutely LOVED on me. I finally had found THE dress!! I was thrilled! We placed the order in mid-September and it arrived in early December, which was much earlier than expected. Nadia is so easy to work with. I wouldn't want to buy a dress from anyone else. I would highly recommend visiting NWLA to purchase your wedding dress!!Sent on 01/18/2020

Best part of my wedding planning!
I cannot speak more highly of Nadia. I say to people all the time that veil shopping was one of my absolute favorite parts of wedding planning. I called the store one evening and she kept the store open an extra hour to accommodate me. She had my dress in stock (which I had purchased from another vendor). She had me try it on with the veils. I so appreciated that she kindly gave me her opinion - not at all in a opinionated manner, but like a friend just trying to help me decide. She was extremely accommodating with my order, helping me make slight adjustments. She was a breath of fresh air in the wedding industry; after just an hour she felt like a friend. My friends all know how much I loved my "veil lady" - thank you so much for helping me! I wish I would have purchased my wedding dress here! Her shop is clean, quaint, beautifully designed, and her selection of dress are beautiful - you can tell she truly loves what she does and takes pride in helping brides.Sent on 05/25/2020
