    Vera's was AMAZING!!!! I was so pleased with the service I received during the entire process from gown selection and then the fitting process as well.

    Leslie did a great job helping me find a dress that I not only loved, but flattered my shape as well! Various members of the Vera's staff also stopped by my room to check out what I was wearing. It was so nice to see everyone so involved and I felt like the most important person in the world at that moment :)

    During the fitting process, Rhonda helped me and was so great! There was quite a bit of altering to do on my dress (which was by all means my own fault, because I had gained a decent amount of weight between the time I ordered and the fitting). I was a bit apprehensive because I wasn't sure if the dress was going to be able to be altered enough to fit correctly. Rhonda and the rest of the staff addressed any fears I had and assured me that it would be no problem. Rhonda and her seamstresses did a fabulous job and it fits like a glove! I can't wait to wear it down the aisle!

    Thank you Vera's for making this whole process so much fun and so stress free! It means more than you could possibly imagine!

    Everything I could鈥檝e asked for and more

    I went dress shopping at another location the morning I went to Vera鈥檚 and I left feeling really disappointed. I decided to call Vera鈥檚 to see if they could get me in last minute, and they said yes, which I am so thankful for because Vera鈥檚 Bridal is amazing! They have SO MANY dresses, a big price range, and a wonderful staff. I was helped by Bridget, who was an absolute sweetheart and took time to get to know me, my fianc茅, all the things I loved about a dress and she didn鈥檛 make me feel pressured when I didn鈥檛 absolutely love one. Her compliments and cheerful spirit made my shopping experience at Vera鈥檚 one I won鈥檛 forget and I can鈥檛 recommend it highly enough!

    They truly care about YOU!

    Vera鈥檚 was the 4th bridal shop I visited while hunting for my dress. To say the 2 hour drive was worth it would be an understatement. I was so lucky to have Caitlin as my stylist. At other salons, I felt pressured to settle for dresses that I didn鈥檛 absolutely love. Caitlin assured me that we were going to find a dress that we didn鈥檛 have to fix in order for me to love. She was both respectful and realistic with my budget. She understood my vision better than I did myself & the first dress she put me in was the one! She was professional, confident, charismatic, and knowledgeable. She was so calm throughout the appointment which isn鈥檛 the vibe we experienced at other salons. I cannot recommend Vera鈥檚 enough. Caitlin you are incredible at your job!
