Dear Potential Customer,
As your Fairy Godmother, it is my wish for you to live happily ever after. While my goal is to help you choose the perfect gown, I also want you to be aware of the choice you make in the person you decide to marry. Please read the following before buying a wedding gown or going any further with your wedding plans. If you recognize any of these warning signs, listen to that little voice in your head telling you not to get married. It’s not too late to get help. If none of these things apply to you
and your potential spouse, then congratulations! I am so happy for you and appreciate the opportunity to help you find your dream gown. Remember that your wedding is one of the most wonderful days of your life. Every woman deserves to be treated like a princess.
15 Reasons to Leave Your Lover, Warning Signs of an Abusive Personality
Something’s just not right in your relationship, and you can’t put your finger on it. So here’s some help. If your mate is displaying a combination of these behaviors, then you may have a potential batterer on your hands.
1. Quick Involvement
Comes on strong, claiming, “I’ve never felt loved like this by any one.” Pressures you for an exclusive commitment almost immediately.
Extremely possessive, calls constantly, or visits unexpectedly.
3. Controlling Behavior
Interrogates you intensely about whom you talked to and where you were, checks mileage on your car, keeps all the money, insists you ask for permission go anywhere or do anything.
4. Unrealistic Expectations
Expects you to be perfect and meet their every need.
Tries to cut you off from family and friends; deprives you of a phone or car; tries to prevent you from holding a job.
6. Blames Others for Problems
It’s always someone else’s fault-the boss, their parents, you-if anything goes wrong. Everyone is out to get them.
7. Blames Others for Feelings
Always saying, “You’re hurting me by not doing what I tell you” or “You make me angry” instead of “I’m angry”.
Is easily insulted. They’ll rant about injustices that are part of life.
9. Cruelty to Animals and Children
Kills or punishes animals brutally. Also, may expect children to do things way beyond their ability, or tease them until they cry.
10. Playful use of Force During Sex
Enjoys throwing you down or holding you down against your will during sex says they find the idea of rape exciting.
11. Verbal Abuse
Constantly criticizes you or says cruel things; degrades, curses, calls you ugly names.
12. Rigid Sex Roles
Expects you to serve, obey, and remain at home.
13. Sudden Mood Swings
Switches from sweet and loving to explosively violent in a matter of minutes.
14. Past Battering
Admits to hitting women or other partners in the past but says the other person or the situation caused it.
15. Threats of Violence
Makes statements such as “I’ll break your neck,” then says, “I didn’t really mean it.”

I wish I could give Cinderella Cellar more than 5 stars! I live out of state but knew I wanted to wedding dress shop with all the women in my family so we met up in my hometown (Fresno) to do it. Cinderella Cellar was the first (and only!) place we went and we had a wonderful experience! I had a few horrible dress shopping experiences and was about to give up, but Doreen worked her magic and I found my perfect dress at Cinderella Cellar. She was attentive and helpful without being overbearing. She is very knowledgeable and gave me great advice on what size I should get (I'm kind of between sizes) and recommended the option that would work best for me - not just what would make her the most money. The prices were very reasonable, and you know what you're paying for up front aka no hidden fees. I have so much respect for Doreen and she runs a respectful, genuine business that I love. I loved it so much I'm doing my alterations there next time I fly home!Sent on 09/11/2018
Another huge bonus was that Doreen let me take the sample dress home to try on for my grandpa, who was unable to make it to the appointment. That meant SO much to me and my family, and he cried seeing me in my wedding dress (it was extra special because he won't be able to see me in it again since he can't attend my wedding in Colorado). This gesture was the kind of thing that you only get with a small, family-owed boutique and it only solidified my love for CC, Doreen and this whole experience :)
I'm so thankful I happened upon Cinderella Cellar on Yelp, it was a great experience and I HIGHLY recommend any bride looking for a reasonably priced bridal boutique with fantastic customer service!

Doreen was truly a dream to work with. A reached out to her when I had to get some altering done to my wedding gown. I'm a short gal so she had to take off quite a few inches and my dress had about 7 different layers to do. She also had to take in my dress about 4 inches (2 on each side) and add a bustle. The part that really amazes me was that my dress had intricate lace appliques throughout the dress and Doreen removed them and sewed them back on once the dress alterations were all done. By the time she was done it fit like a glove and looked perfect, like it came straight from the manufacturer made for me specifically.Sent on 07/17/2018
As a wedding photographer, it is rare for me to hear rave reviews about the "before the event" vendors. But in the case of The Cinderella Cellar, I heard only glowing words from a recent bride and her bridesmaids on the work done on their dresses! When I have happy brides, feeling radiant in their gowns, I get stunning images, and I am happy to endorse any vendor that makes my brides feel like a princess! <3 <3
I LOVE Cinderella Cellar!! I actually used her when I got married! She is so sweet and you can tell she has an ever growing passion for her job!!
