    I went to Persnickety Bride to get a wedding dress for vow renewals. My whole life I've been a tomboy, and can't remember last time I wore a dress, not to mention a wedding dress. I'm also petite size/small bust, and though for sure that would be an issue. Not so! Denise blew me away with her kindness, knowledge and patience. I was so lucky to find a gorgeous sample dress with price tag to match my budget. She made me feel so comfortable, and all the dresses she picked out were really perfect, but lucky for me I got a dress I would have otherwise not gotten if it wasn't for the sample sale. I highly recommend them, you won't regret it. You gotta check out the sample sale. Thanks to Denise for making this such a great experience, and for helping me find exactly the dress I had pictured. Denise, you're simply the best!!

    The Persnickety Bride's reply:

    Oh Marianne honestly you have made my day!!! I am so happy you came in and I can not wait to see pictures of you on your special day. That dress is simply gorgeous on you and with a little something in your hair and earrings you are going to blow everyone away!!! I am so thrilled you came to see us and most importantly that you were able to become a Persnickety Bride - much love and please send pictures! xoxo Denise

    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!

    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
