I found the dress of my dreams 💕and i could actually AFFORD IT 😊
Before I even start talking about how much I love my dress, I must start with how helpful Ava was. My mom and I walked in without an appointment, hoping to just browse styles and get an idea of a price point. Ava was finishing up with another bride and I was given the freedom to choose any of the gowns I wanted to try on. The flexibility in deciding for myself what I wanted to try on was wonderful. Since I had been browsing Pinterest for many years, I think I knew what I was looking for.Sent on 02/21/2019
Trying on the dresses was the fun part. Ava was so helpful in making sure I was comfortable and was organically happy for me. She truly made the experience unforgettable. She had also proven that she has been in this industry for a very long time. I felt like I was in safe hands.
The selection of gowns was great! I learned that they get new dresses in every couple months. Even if we hadn’t found “the dress” in our first stop, I was definitely going to come back to check out their new arrivals. I tried on about 15 dresses..... the second dress I tried on was THE ONE.
When I asked how much this STUNNING dream dress was.... I was SHOCKED to hear it was only $999!!!!! That. Does. Not. Exist. The dress I chose was extremely detailed and is of amazing quality. Ava explained to me that these were designer sample dresses, never altered or worn, only ever tried on. The prices on ALL of the dresses were unbeatable!!! THAT alone is a reason to go check it out!
Girls..... I have friends that have paid 3k for their dresses.... this dress is very affordable, but it is also stunning. Good quality, great atomosohere, wonderful pricing, and Ava and their seamstress are both very helpful and knowledgeable. I feel like i won the lottery. Save your money, and get your dream dress at this shop. You won’t be let down!!

not your typical Bridal Boutique
I really appreciate a type of Boutique like this. They are a contingent store where you buy off the rack and you take that dress home, meaning no waiting and no getting a dress that was completely different when it did actually came in. Especially with Covid, it was a huge relief knowing that I already had my dress ready to go and I didn't have to worry about the delay in shipping. Also if you were a bride like me who didn't have thousands of dollars ( nor did I want to spend that much on my dress) this was a perfect solution.Sent on 09/29/2020
