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

Denise and the whole team at The Persnickety Bride were top notch and so great to work with. I was introduced to the shop as they were a retailer who carried the dress that I had been dreaming of. I started my dress search at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, so I was nervous that I wasn't going to be able to get my dress in time, however, they handled the situation like true professionals. Prior to meeting in person, Denise set up a Zoom appointment to discuss my tastes and style preferences. She took the time to show me gowns on mannequins, which was super helpful in determining which dresses that I wanted to try on at my in person appointment. I had such a fun time during our Zoom appointments and in person appointments to try on dresses. Denise really knows her stuff, and not to mention is so fun to work with. She truly cares about her brides. I can't recommend Denise and The Persnickety Bride enough, you will not be disappointed!Sent on 08/01/2020
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Niki - wow - how many times can I say wow - putting your dress on you yesterday was beyond amazing that dress - was just wow. We know its a great dress but you were absolutely stunning - you know we are totally here for you if you need anything else for the wedding. Thank you for the awesome review. I live every day for my girls (and you know you are MINE once you are a Persnickety Bride you are always a Persnickety bride) - my job is to see you smile from ear to ear and have people gaze at you on your wedding day - and say - wow she looks stunning.. I want it to be the happiest day of your life and create the memories and pictures that will last a lifetime of love, marriage and family. xoxo Denise

Some very talented people and innovative ideas come from this boutique, The Persnickety Bride! Have heard nothing but good things from our wedding couples who have also used their service.
Denise loves what she does and it shows! Her business is so much more than invitations and place cards! The ideas she has for so many aspects of your Big Day are mind boggling. If you want the very best, be a "Pernickety Bride" and let her take care of all it for you!
