    Wonderful experience

    Affordable. I took advantage of a “March Madness” sale they had...$200 off a $1000 dress or more. The consultant was wonderful and the place, though small, had a lot of character. I am glad I went with a local small business for my dress instead of a franchise. My dress is beautiful and its perfect for me. I can’t wait until alterations and my wedding day. A shout out to The Dress Matters for accommodating me with a walking boot (I fractured my ankle a few weeks ago).

    My dream dress

    I had originally gone to The Dress Matters because I saw a designer that I was interested in was having a trunk sale there one weekend. I tried on about 8 dresses, and bought one of them for $200 off because of the trunk sale, so my dress was a steal for under $1000! Debbie and the seamstress Courtney have been such a pleasure to work with, and Courtney made some alterations to create my dream dress! The only minor issues I had is it's such a small shop with limited parking, that I sometimes parked across the street on a side street and that I had to store the wedding dress at my house.

    The Dress Matters's reply:

    Thank you Anna! You were gorgeous in your dress. I am glad that we helped you find the one. It was a pleasure to work with you. Best wishes to you and your husband.
