Kathy is the owner and she was the first person we saw when we went there today. It was in the Salem mall (I am from portland) and I understand they just moved. Kathy was so helpful in a mom sort of way. She brought dresses, helped me try them on, laced me up, hung them up and did all that! She is amazing. I was excited about that Aaron guy I read about in all the reviews and got to meet him too about 1/2 through my search. I was super picky and he kept saying "so I hear you saying you like.." and he helped me realize what I wanted. We found the perfect dress. We actually found 2 and it was a hard choice. We had only been to David's bridal and it was a horrible experience. But they scored a 3/5 and this place scored 4.5/5. We were so impressed, so comfortable and I am so grateful Kathy and Aaron helped us so much. I kept telling them how impressed I was with how good of a team they make! Aaron said he has been in the bridal business for 6+ years and he is exactly how I would imagine a man that works in a wedding dress store to me. Calm, funny, collected and probably gay. I am a size 18ish and really wanted something flattering. He knows so much and helped me find exactly what I wanted whe. I didn't yet know what that was. Kathy is the rock that holds it all together. I was so impressed and this is my first review I've ever written bc I enjoyed my experience that much!!! Also, they called in the alterations lady Wednesday at 11 for our surprise apt we made that morning. They mean business and had a huge selection of all sizes. They are productive, fast, funny and they cared a lot about me and what my vision is. I am feeling so grateful! You should shop there!!!

After checking out several bridal salons in the Portland/Beaverton area, I ended up visiting a couple in Salem when the opportunity presented itself. Simply Grand is adequately named as it was the very first place I went where I truly felt appreciated as a bride. Kathi was my saleslady and she was a treat to work with…! Kathi researched and found gowns for me to try on… Naturally, this is also where I purchased my wedding gown from as well. What a dress!! They carry lovely gowns in this simple salon and the prices are very fair. I would highly recommend this salon to any bride-to-be!Sent on 04/09/2015
Kathi also referred me to an excellent seamstress that works next door. Mary H. put the final touches on my dress to make it look absolutely perfect!! It's amazing how the right dress can make a girl look and feel so beautiful!!

I was extremely impressed by Simply Grand. Aaron does amazing work!! Everyone that helped in the store was friendly, patient, and willing to help. They even made time for last minute alterations right before the wedding due to going down a couple sizes. At my final dress fitting before my wedding I got that "teary-eyed" moment where I was overjoyed with the outcome of the dress, and then on my wedding day I got the moment that every girl dreams about...I'd never felt prettier. It was everything I'd wanted and more. I can't thank them enough!!!Sent on 12/23/2015
