    I loved this little shop. The staff was very pleasant and made me feel like I was their number one priority. They were not pushy and helped me find my dream dress. I been to other bridal shops with other brides and by far this is the best one. They are however limited what they do carry on the shop floor due to their size but I have no doubt if they do not have that dress they will help you find it.

    I seriously cannot thank Shelly and her staff enough for all the help with my wedding dress. I of course was the bride that found the dress they absolutely wanted online. Shelly was the only one in the area willing to bring the dress into the store from the designer. When I went for my first appointment I felt like such a valuable customer and like they already knew me. Of course the sample dress sent from the designer didn’t fit but Shelly had me try on a similar dress and used accessories so I could get the look of the dress that I brought in. I instantly knew that dress was the one I wanted. Thankfully I ordered just in time because it was being discontinued. I also went shopping for my dress a year and a half before my wedding and Shelly went out of her way and stored the dress for me till I was ready for it to go to the seamstress. I can’t recommend this shop highly enough and will be sending everyone to them. Thank you Shelly for making what I thought was going to be a stressful experience the easiest and most relaxing part of wedding planning. I absolutely loved my dress and all your assistance with helping me pick it.
