Amazing Experience at The Persnickety Bride!
I had the most amazing experience at The Persnickety Bride! When we went in for my appointment, we were immediately greeted with Denise's warmth and excitement. She had already pulled several dresses that I had seen on the website and wanted to try. Since my wedding was coming up in just two and a half months, she called her vendors to make sure that she only pulled samples that she knew she would be able to get in time. Prior to my arrival, I shared with Denise clear criteria for what I was looking for, and she listened to my requests. I tried on several dresses that were absolutely beautiful... but they didn't feel like "me" -- despite being exactly what I had asked for! I was feeling a bit confused and discouraged, but Denise brought in one last dress and said, "Humor me and just try this one on." I was skeptical because it has some elements that I had specifically told her I did not like, but I trusted her and tried it on anyways... and I absolutely LOVED it! I was shocked. This woman worked her magic and picked exactly the dress that suited my body type, my vision for my wedding, as well as how I wanted to feel on my day. Throughout the whole process, Denise was kind, encouraging, patient, and eager to help me achieve my goals. She clearly has a passion for her business and her enthusiasm is contagious. I will recommend Denise and her team to any of my friends/family who are preparing for their weddings. Thank you to the whole team at The Persnickety Bride!Sent on 11/02/2020
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Rachel is a total love. I so enjoyed being around her and her mom. She is such a down to earth person and is planning a small intimate wedding with her fiance and family. In my heart I really knew the dress that would be her dress. I waited on pulling it because Rachel was pretty sure she wanted a dress with as little structure as possible. In the end, I did pull our Marissa dress that is just a gorgeous fit in flair with amazing boning and structure in the bodice. As soon as I put this dress on Rachel knew it was the one. Elegant, natural, with beautiful lace, lines that highlight the body beautiful and a stunning (but not to big) train - this non sparkle dress off the shoulder showed her beautiful decolatage perfectly. Rachel has great height - and my god she looks like a goddess in this dress. so so lovely. She has the cutest little pixie cut as well - so it just went so well with her personality and need for beauty and elegance. Stunning simply stunning. Rachel - I loved when you came back with mom and your godmother to pick up your dress - I am so excited to see pictures of your ceremony. Thank you for coming and becoming a Persnickety Bride. I loved having you as a client and am so happy you are part of our family of brides! xoxo Denise, Emily and Aeryn

Literally amazing in every way!
I honestly cannot say enough good things about The Persnickety Bride. I honestly loved this store and Denise (the owner) THAT MUCH. I had a strong feeling I'd find the right dress there the moment I walked in the door. I'd already been to a couple of bridal stores, but nothing fully "clicked" for me before Persnickety. Plenty of dresses had looked good and other owners were also nice, but no owner compares to Denise. Her store is beautiful and filled with incredible quality gowns, but it really was the kind of service she gives that I've never gotten anywhere else (bridal or otherwise). She set me up with an online lookbook before my appointment so I could identify dresses I like (however many or few you want!) and then she had those ready for me when I arrived. She took the time to have a quick zoom pre-meeting with me so we could talk about my wedding and she could really understand me, my style, and my wedding. She clearly cares, and that's what makes her so effective at helping connect clients with their dress. She is genuinely excited for her brides, and she really knows how to help match them with dresses, be supportive of their vision, and give useful AND honest comments (but only when they're wanted). She really knows what she's doing. I genuinely believe the right dress for every bride is at Persnickety Bride. You will not be sorry if you go here!!Sent on 06/25/2020
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Claire - You and your mom were such a joy to work with today. I love how beautiful you look in your dress. It is stunning on you and of course will look more stunning when you walk down the aisle! I'm excited we can get it in before you move to Texas. Thank you for your incredible review. It really brought tears to my eyes. I can't express how much I appreciate the kind words of my clients. It pushes me forward to continue my craft in my own way and style that makes a difference in the lives of my brides and their families.

Loved every minute!
This is a one of a kind shop. I knew from the energy as soon as I walked in that I'd be purchasing my dress from The Persnickety Bride. The one-on-one appointments offered a much more intimate experience than other shops I've been in. Lori was so sweet and funny as I tried on dresses; she was honest, patient, and knowledgable. As for Denise- she is highly passionate, genuine, and she truly runs a beautiful shop. She took the time to send me kind messages before my appointments, which really helped to calm my nerves. This type of quality is unmatched! I'm so grateful! (and props to Denise's daughter for helping!)Sent on 01/26/2020
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Erica you looked stunning in your dress. I am so happy with the fit and how joyous you look in it. If you need anything you know how to reach us. Thank you for your lovely review. It means so much to me, Lori and the rest of our staff. xoxo Denise
