All Brides should be Persnickety Brides!
The Persnickety Bride gave me an experience I will never forget. Denise and the rest of them team were so personable and focused on me from the moment I walked into the shop. She made sure to listen to what I wanted and what I was looking for in a dress, and I found the one that very same day! I will be forever greatful and I hope all brides choose to become a Persnickety Bride!Sent on 03/10/2019
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Diana you looked radiant in your dress and the matching veil. The joy that you had with that wedding dress really touched me. It is one of our favorite dresses here at The Persnickety Bride and we are so proud to handle the Justin Alexander Signature line of wedding dresses. They are truly spectacular works of art, from the crepes, to the hand beaded dresses they are truly masterpieces. I get very excited when a bride purchase one as the quality is incredible and the look amazing. I'm also so grateful to Marianne my past bride for bringing you and your mother in the shop. We love our intimate setting and are so happy you enjoyed the way we work with our brides to make it a very special experience. Thank you for your lovely review and more importantly = thank you for becoming A Persnickety Bride xoxo Denise

Felt like a queen :)
I'm currently in the process of working with Denise from The Persnickety Bride but am having such a wonderful engagement that I wanted to write a review now.Sent on 06/24/2019
Right when I stepped in the shop with my mother and future MIL, I felt like family. Denise was so warm and welcoming along with her right hand-gal, Lori, who helped me in the dressing room and made me feel uber comfortable with what dresses fit me best. She listened to my concerns and helped accommodate with other gowns.
Because it was such a great experience, I think my happiness encouraged me to choose a dress that I later had second thoughts. Needless to say, I was a mess and felt terrible.
Long story short, my moms and I explained the situation and Denise was nothing short of understanding and empathetic to the situation. She invited me to come back, try on more styles and wouldn't you know it - I found THE dress! Even when I was thinking of making certain adjustments, she was on the phone with the designer's representative right then and there to take care of it.
I highly recommend this bridal shop to all future brides. It's more than just looking for a dress. It's a whole experience and feel like the queen that you are :)
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Emily you and your mom and further mom in law are awesome! It is my belief and that of my staff that we are here to facilitate all that your need to make your wedding the most memorable day of your life. It is especially wonderful when we have clients like you that come in with a big smile and excitement and make finding your dress, accessories, stationery and anything else we do a partnership in creating a joyous wedding celebration. You melt my heart kiddo and that basically says it all - you are forever a Persnickety Bride. xoxo Denise, Lori, Emily and Christiana

From the time I made an inquiry about making an appointment, to when I walked out having purchased my dream dress, Persnickety Brides was AMAZING! After scheduling my appointment (all online, which was awesome!) I received a dress survey page where I was able to pick dresses that fit my perspective style. The day prior, I was sent a reminder email which also asked who I was bringing so they would be greeted by name (which they were!) I then was sent a personal text from Denise the day of my appointment. The multiple contacts really made me feel at ease. Parking is fantastic, and my elderly grandmother had no issues getting around the salon with her walker. Denise made everything so easy! (Also, a big shout out to her daughter and her daughter’s friend! They were organizing the dresses and helping us stay on track, thanks ladies!) The dresses were already waiting for me, and I found my dream dress in no time! I was slightly nervous that there wasn’t going to be enough inventory …boy, I was wrong! Every dress is stunning and there is ample selection. My mother even purchased her dress that she will be wearing to my wedding at the appointment as well! I highly recommend Persnickety Brides and I cannot wait to continue to work with them through my wedding planning process!Sent on 09/20/2019

WOW WOW WOW I don’t know where to start on a review for Denise & her team. I shopped for my gown all over CT, NY and even a handful of stores in Texas. I must have been to at least 20 shops and tried on hundreds of wedding dresses. I’m very indecisive and was HATING the wedding dress shopping process… until I walked into Persnickety Bride! The shop is a beautiful boutique with the most gorgeous dresses (which her and her team keep very well maintained) from a variety of designers all with different styles. Denise and her team are incredible – they are patient and helpful throughout the whole process and don’t try to pressure you (like many other shops I went into). They have great ideas on how to tweak any dress and make it EXACTLY what you are looking for – and not to mention FUN! My mom, my sister and I had so much fun when we were at Persnickety! Because we had so much fun finding a dress at Persnickety, we also did our stationary – the invitations went out a few weeks ago and I can’t count how many texts/phone calls my mom and I have gotten commenting on how beautiful the invitations are! Stop looking around and go let Persnickety take care of your wedding!Sent on 08/28/2019
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Kelly my Kelly - thank you so much for your beautiful review. I feel like we are family now. I totally adore you and your mom - we have such a good time together. Thank you thank you for becoming A Persnickety Bride. I loved every minute I spent with you guys. Plus I thought picking paper out was super easy. Definitely a little easier than the dress - but we made it through that process as well! I am sure I will see you again when your veil comes in!! xoxo Denise

I could not say enough great things about Denise!
Denise and her team at The Persnickety Bride were absolutely amazing! From the moment I stepped into the store for my appointment, everyone was so personable and helpful. Out of the different places I went while looking for a dress, Denise had the largest selection of dresses in a wide variety of styles. All of the dresses that I liked prior to my appointment on the look book AND were in my price range were already pulled out for me to try on, which made trying on different dresses a lot less intimidating. Based on what I liked and didn't like, Denise then pointed me towards other dresses. She also was exceptionally helpful in talking through how different dresses could be changed/altered in whatever way I would need (fuller skirt, more A-line, etc.). Aside from the gorgeous selection of dresses, Denise's personality and investment in me finding exactly the right dress made my experience wonderful and I cannot wait to wear my dress on my wedding day!Sent on 02/13/2019
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Hannah you were such a pleasure to work with on finding your wedding gown. You really had a great sense of what worked for you and what you loved. That's really what it is all about. We try to be there emotionally for our brides as well as be sure that we have great dresses for them to try on and feel beautiful. It's your wedding - the start of your new family. We want you happy and joyful and never stressed out. Can't wait to spend time with you again my dear xoxo Denise

Magical Wedding Dress Shop!
The Persnickety Bride provided the most personal Bridal experience I could ask for! It is a small local shop with a great personal feel and touch that Denise and her staff certainly delivered on! They really listened to what I wanted and were able to help me reach my bridal dreams! It was so easy, the process was nothing short of magical ♥ can't thank this team enough for helping me find my wedding dressSent on 01/29/2019
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Dear Carolina - Thank you for your lovely review! We love making our brides and their families feel special. It is a special time in your life and you deserve the best experience ever! It was so great having you in with your family and friends. I really enjoyed our time together and most importantly the fact that you were "stalking" our Justin Alexander dress - did make it pretty darn simple on our part!!!

Emily · Getting married on 11/01/2019
Denise was absolutely amazing, and her staff was so attentive and helpful! They made picking out a dress easy, fun and enjoyable. They treated myself and my family absolutely wonderful and made the process so personal. I really felt like the most important part of their day, and have no hesitation referring any other brides to them. You can’t go wrong! So happy I found them and got my wedding dress from them. Thank you Denise and girls!!Sent on 06/19/2018
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Emily is the BEST!!! First off I have to tell you she knew the dress she wanted to be put into... at the time we didn't have the Look Book on line to go through gowns (or I dont think we did ) but she knew she liked our Marissa gown. I put her in several fit and flairs - but when I put Marissa on her - she just casually looked in the mirror and said something like "yup I'm done - this is the one - this is the one I saw on line - I love it - this is the one"... with that we popped the Prosecco - I totally love your energy and you look terrific in your dress. I couldn't be happier for you Emily and am looking forward to working on your wedding stationery when you are ready!!! Thank you again for becoming A Persnickety Bride and putting up such a beautiful testimonial - it means a lot to me and to my staff!!! xoxo Denise

I am a Persnickety Bride!
From the start, my experience at The Persnickety Bride was absolutely incredible. Denise was so flexible, understanding, and really made me feel so special. She makes the appointment very personal and so much fun. Bridal gown appointments can be a bit nerve wrecking, but at The Persnickety Bride you become family! Almost every dress I tried on was absolutely stunning that it was hard to pick! I found my dream dress here and I cannot wait to get it in so I can put it on again! Denise is keeping in touch and is helping ensure the rest of the process goes smooth! I am so happy that I can call myself a Persnickety Bride!!!!!!Sent on 01/05/2019

The BEST ever!!!
Denise is AMAZING!! I brought my mother, 2 sisters and future mother in law with me. Denise made us comfortable from the second we walked in. She had all of us laughing and enjoying every minute of our time with her! She knows her dresses so well and was able to pick out exactly what she knew would look good on me! I feel so lucky to have found her and had such a great experience!! I highly recommend!!Sent on 01/03/2019

It was such a pleasant experience getting my dress from The Persnickety Bride. Denise made it easy and stress free when searching for my dress. Other bridal shops that I had went to were quick to just grab anything off the rack, but Denise actually listened to what I was looking for. She made it fun and exciting, while accommodating the different opinions of my guests and found one everyone loved! I’m so in love with my dress and would recommend to anyone looking for their dream dress to come here! I drove over an hour to come here, and it’s definitely worth the drive for an amazing experience! Thank you so much!
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Graysha - you and your girlfriends are total sweetie pies! I really enjoyed working with you very much. What I loved even more was seeing you in your finished gown in a petite size. Graysha is petite and has a small frame - so when we created the petite size gown I was dying to see how it would fit on her when completed - it is absolutely gorgeous. Fits perfectly and I am so excited for your big day. It is going to be outstanding!!!! I totally love working with you my dear and let me know when you want to start your wedding stationery... xoxo Love, Denise
Shannon Bass · Married on 08/23/2019
Denise, the owner, is truly one of a kind!! Her and her gorgeous assistant, Kirsten, could not have made my experience a better one! They truly cared about helping me find the dress I looked my best in! I HIGHLY recommend them! They made it so fun and memorable for me! I can’t thank them enough! Denise is a crazy, energetic ball of fire!! She makes you feel like you’ve known her forever!! I’m SOOOO happy I stumbled upon this place!!! GO GO GO check them out!!!! You will NOT be disappointed!!!!Sent on 12/23/2018
The Persnickety Bride's reply:We honestly had such an incredibly fun time with Shannon and her BFF MOH Kelly. It was rainy out - miserable actually - she came in wondering would she find her dress. Sometimes the dress in your Mindseye is not necessarily the dress that you put on and fall in love with - so I am sure Shannon will tell you - always keep your options open. She did and allowed us to guide her to her dream dress! Shannon has a fabulous figure and height and wanted something very beautiful - sleek and something that would be like a NYC wedding (she is having it in CT at a beautiful venue) - her dress is absolutely gorgeous and so much a comopolitan chic and best yet timlessly elegant dress. Without question - she looks absolutely stunning and I couldn't be more happy that she came down from Wethersfield ct - (yes we have had a ton of brides from up there) Boston, and all over CT, NY, and MA! Shannon thank you for coming to us. Thank you for entrusting us and best yet thank you for having the joy!!! We love the fun and we love the joy!!! xoxo Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year! talk soon xoxo D

One Stop Shop
I went to Denise for my dress first and then learned she also did stationary. She completely understood my vision and helped with making it become a reality. It makes me very sad that my wedding is over and I no longer will be working with the entire team at PersnicketySent on 08/04/2019
Amanda DaSilva · Married on 08/04/2019
The Persnickety Bride is such an adorable shop and everyone was super friendly. I was lucky enough to have met Denise and have her as my guide through my search for the perfect wedding dress. She was exceptionally patient, honest and caring towards myself, my mother and two maids of honor. We truly loved her!! Dress after dress, I never felt rushed or like I was being too picky. She took the time with me and talked about my likes and dislikes and made me feel so special.. Denise found my dress and it was exactly a combination of everything I wanted. She gave me options and the place to go to for alterations and minor changes. I can't thank her enough. I am so happy to be a Persnickety Bride!!Sent on 02/21/2019

Nicole · Married on 07/13/2019
I couldn't be happier with my experience at the Persnickety Bride. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by the wonderful, bubbly owner - Denise. She was excited to know about me and was so welcoming to my Mom and sister. Denise worked hard to listen to what I wanted, and gauge my reaction to dresses to help me find the perfect dress. With Denise's help, the experience was fun, exciting, and not the least bit stressful! Plus, we celebrated with some champagne once I said yes to gown! I had visited several other dress shops and nothing compared to the Persnickety Bride. In addition to the amazing experience, the shop itself is gorgeous. It is beautifully lit, clean, and well decorated. There is a comfortable sitting area for your helpers and most importantly an outstanding selection of beautiful gowns. I cannot say enough about the Persnickety Bride and the amazing Denise!Sent on 07/09/2018
The Persnickety Bride's reply:Oh Nicole - I had such a wonderful time with all of you! Thank you for the thoughtful, beautiful testimonials. My only goal is to make my brides and my couples happy.

Much love and I will talk to you soon xoxo Denise & The Persnickety Bride team.

I got my dress at The Persnickety Bride the other week and couldn’t be happier with the experience! Denise, the owner, was so much fun to work with and made trying on dresses a great experience! She was able to pull so many dresses I liked based on the few photos I showed her. I Didn’t feel pressured to push my budget up or that I was just one of many brides getting a dress there. Denise really makes you feel special and was just as excited as my mom and I that I found my dress! I would highly recommend persnickety brides to anyone looking for that perfect dress. Thanks Denise, can’t wait to see my dress when it comes in!!Sent on 10/11/2018

She had an exact idea of what I was looking for and helped me select the most perfect dress for me.

Pleasure to Work With
Denise and Emily were an absolute pleasure to work with. I have to admit that picking out invitations was very overwhelming for me. However, they were so patient with my indecisiveness and walked us through the various options. They even met with us a second time to review everything! We couldn't have been happier with our wedding invitations. We received so many compliments!Sent on 08/08/2019

PB listens to EXACTLY what you're looking for
Denise and her team really listened to exactly what I was looking for, and pulled dresses that matched my style perfectly! I was looking for elegant/classy/clean-cut lines, and the Justin Alexander collection had so many great options. The third dress Denise suggested was the one! She is so friendly and really sees the big picture of your big day - it's about starting a new family! It was so nice to have a moment like finding my dress with stylists who were genuinely excited for me. The Persnickety Bride has a family atmosphere, a beautiful collection of dresses, and a real eye for which dresses will flatter you and fit your style. Thanks Denise for a lovely experience finding my gown!Sent on 04/30/2019
