I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Fikre & Chris at The Cotton Bride for all the special attention and guidance they gave to me in selection of my bridal gown. Given I am an older bride, I was very hesitant about whether I would find the right dress. Plus, it is was very important that my gown be comfortable so I could “dance the night away”. These two gentlemen made sure I tried on numerous options so that my final decision would best fit me & what I was looking for. Their concern for my happiness & needs were extraordinary - and I received SO many compliments about my beautiful gown!!!! They have now become a part of my extended family, & I look forward to visiting them in the near future. I have never received such personalized service & concern, and strongly urge you to visit them for your bridal/formal attire!!!!

Fikre and Chris made me the wedding dress of my dreams!
First, I tried on different dresses within their existing Cotton Bride selection. I picked my favorite elements from each of their dresses, and sat with them to create a sketch of my ideal dress. Fikre and Chris were incredibly responsive to my random emails throughout the day, and were flexible to accommodate my schedule for fittings. They were mindful of my timeline and budget to advise on appropriate materials/fabrics.
Fikre and Chris are the BEST - they made the wedding dress experience so personal and special. I highly recommend the Cotton Bride!

I cannot begin to explain how amazing Fikre and Chris are! I was waiting to post until I had a photo. My mom and sister in law came to New York to hunt down wedding dresses with me one weekend. That means we had a lot to get to in just a few short days! I think I met with Fikre and Chris on our 2nd or 3rd day... in my opinion I was done! My mom wanted me to continue shopping because they were here and there wouldn't be another opportunity to shop with them. I couldn't forget about the experience and the dress I fell in love with at the Cotton Bride. They have you try on samples to get an idea of what you like and what fits you best. They could tell by how I was standing or how I placed my arms if I was comfortable! Amazing! In the middle of the appointment I had several fabrics draped over me to come up with the dress I loved! One of the things that bothered me personally when I went into the bridal shops is the material against my skin... when I tried on Cotton Bride's samples I didn't get that same feeling.. it's in the title... Cotton Bride! There are very few appointments after you choose them as your dress designer... I went back 3 times after and each time the dress had progressed. It's hard to imagine your dress will come out of the bottom layers but I promise it does! I may be bias because I felt like I got along really well with Fikre and Chris but I was so excited throughout the whole process. I was dying to tell my Husband but I kept everything a secret... as best I could. Now my Husband wants to go visit them because I kept raving about them!
Fikre and Chris are very pleasant and very flexible with your schedule. They accommodated my mom who was flying in from Ohio to make sure she was there for every fitting!
