    Amazing experience the whole way through

    Can't say enough good things about Schaffer's! From an amazing experience trying on dresses with Kimberly, who had the perfect mix of forcing me to be a bit decisive while making sure I felt like a queen, to ripping out the zipper to put in a new one and add real buttons, to making sure it was absolutely perfect when I picked it up the day before, I have no complaints! The dream dress experience! Veil was also from there and was amazing.

    Amazing experience!

    I went the the Schaffer’s location in Scottsdale, AZ and had the best time! I was a bit nervous walking in but the ladies there made me feel so comfortable and were so helpful. I absolutely love my dress and can’t thank me enough for helping me find it!
