Amazing service, beautiful dress

As soon as I was engaged I was dress hunting. I set up appointments at all the major dress shops in Charlottesville (my mom lives there and I wanted to share that experience with her even though I knew I was getting married in Vancouver, Canada). Sealed with a Kiss happened to be my first appointment, and Pat was my attendant. We loved chatting with her, and she let me try on maybe 20+ dresses in my appointment, which was amazing. I came away with a few immediate favorites but wanted to think on it. I ended up canceling my other appointments at other shops and went back to SWAK three times. During the third visit, when I was supposedly saying yes to a different dress, I was convinced to try one final one. It was the goldilocks dress, and I fell in love. The best part was, it fit me perfectly already so I was able to buy it off the rack at a nice discount! My dress was hand-made by Tanya Grig and sat waiting for me at SWAK until that magical day in January when it became mine.

I used Sealed With a Kiss to alter a dress that I purchased consignment. They did a fantastic job making it fit my body perfectly. They listened to my concerns and desires, and my dress turned out beyond what I could have imagined! I was extremely happy with their professionalism and skill, and how quickly the alterations were completed (in less than three weeks)!!!
