    Wonderful experience!

    I had a wonderful experience at Weddings by Design! The staff was so great to allow me to bring in the amount of family members I had and it made it that much more special. Along with their patience for a few little ones that tagged along. Jan was great with helping me stay in my budget and helping me find gowns that met the style I was looking for!

    Best wedding dress store in DSM area!

    Weddings by Design was just the right place for me to find my wedding dress and veil, in addition to the bridesmaid dresses and the men’s suits. All of the staff here are helpful and kind. They were always willing to answer any of my questions whenever I called. It was convenient that I could store my dress here until the wedding day and have them steam my dress right before the wedding day. They also steamed all of the bridesmaid dresses for us and ensured that the guys had the right sizes and everything for their suits. I would definitely recommend Weddings by Design for any bride looking for her perfect wedding dress and help with any other wedding attire needs!

    Wonderful and professional

    Highly recommend this salon to everyone. In advance of my appointment, they took my pinterest board and pre-pulled dresses that matched my inspirations. Then they had me walk the store for others. Clean and updated the salon helped me find my perfect "yes" dress!

    Weddings by Design's reply:

    Wow thank you Sarah for your review! Congratulations on finding your dress and we appreciate your business!
