Loved this bridal boutique! Having a "hands-on" approach to the dresses was exactly what I wanted in looking for a wedding dress. The ladies were available to answer questions or help out, but they let me and three of my bridesmaids search through dresses until I found "the one." When trying on dresses, the ladies were sweet and encouraging. I didn't feel pressured to pick a dress that day, even though I did. This business cares more about the bride than about making a sale! Plus, you can't beat a perfect-condition $200 wedding dress. Cannot recommend highly enough!Sent on 08/28/2018

These ladies are just the best! They're so sweet and helpful and the dresses are a steal! I didn't end up finding my dress here but I did use Blanca Shek as my seamstress and she is absolutely wonderful. I had quite a bit that needed done on my dress and she's worked with me and given me amazing advice throughout the process. The value is fantastic and I'm so grateful to her and all the wonderful women that run this awesome organization.Sent on 05/26/2017
