    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!!

    Wedding Dress


    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!

    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!

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!!

    Denise is absolutely incredible and her boutique is stunning! I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience at The Persnickety Bride. I had been to a few other salons, but felt completely overwhelmed by the thought of choosing my wedding gown! During my appointment, I had Denise's full attention. She had an exact idea of what I was looking for and helped me select the most perfect dress for me. Her personality and sense of humor calmed my nerves immediately because I knew I was in such great hands. If you haven't already, please call her to make an appointment. You absolutely won't regret it!

    Nikki-Lynn I am so very happy you found us! I had such a wonderful time with you, and your family! You came in with the biggest smile and were so very excited. Your gown fit you to a TEE! I am honestly honored to work with all of you. I am also touched that you wrote such a beautiful testimonial. It really makes me so happy (ok now I am getting teary eyed) to help my clients get their dream dress and other items. I do love what I do and families like yours make it so worth while. I look forward to continuing your planning journey with all the other items we offer in our boutique. See you this weekend - much love xo Denise

    I initially contacted the Persnickety Bride because I was looking for a specific dress, even though they didn’t have it in stock, Denise (the owner) went above and beyond to get a sample of the dress for me to try on. She was the ONLY bridal salon (within a 3 hour radius of Boston!!!!!!) that offered to try and track the dress down. Because of this I decided that if this wasn’t my dream dress I would still make sure to purchase my dress from her because she deserves my business. “My dress” wasn’t the dress for me but Denise was more than helpful in trying to find one that worked. Her cheerful attitude and humor totally won my family and I over and we purchased a different gown (my dream gown) that day. So all in all, the Persnickety Bride hasn’t been in the dress business for long but with how they run things I can only imagine their great successes in the long run! Thanks so much Persnickety Bride and I can’t wait to see you guys again when my dress comes in!

    Oh my God this place is amazing! I have traveled to so many places throughout the years and customer service is key. This is going to be my second wedding and I couldn't have asked for a better Bridal Boutique and staff. Denise is amazing and her daughters are the cutest. They were all extremely a attentative, caring, loving and made it all about me. You can tell the difference between someone just trying to sell a dress and someone who is very passionate and are doing what they love. This is Denise all the way. Not to get on a personal note but my mother was being difficult which was upsetting and all Denise did the whole time was comfort me and act like the mother that I needed that day I bought my gown with her. She is honest straightforward and exactly what I needed while trying to pick the right bridal dress for me. On top of all that it's so convenient they have invitations, save the dates, accessories, Etc. which makes it so much easier because I have a very busy life and not a lot of time plus I want to purchase
    from someone I trust. They are amazing! Trust me you will not be disappointed and they have a beautiful variety of dresses
    and accessories Etc. Xo

    My dear Michelle, I am so happy you came up from Westchester to find us. I am so glad we were able to create a space that is not only warm and inviting, but really expresses my personal belief that my clients are like my "persnickety family". We do not treat people like numbers. We treat everyone with respect and listen very closely to what they envision their day to be. They are marrying their best friend and will be surrounded by the people they love in celebration. It is a milestone in your life and just the fact that my staff and I are sharing this part of it is very important to us. So is the responsibility of doing it right. As you know, I have sold to many large corporations in my day and have been in business a very long time. The personal gratification I get from the love of my families and brides can not be expressed in words. I am proud to be in a position where I can help others and feel their appreciation and love. It's exciting and I am touched and honored to be part of your journey. xoxo

    I wish I could give more stars! Denise is absolutely amazing and I could not have found my wedding dress without her. The dress selection in her store is amazing and she is constantly getting new styles in all the time. She gets genuinely excited about all things wedding and goes out of her way to make you feel so special. I am thrilled that I found this place!

    I cannot say enough about Denise and the fabulous team at The Persnickety Bride. I have had the pleasure of working with Denise for my save-the-dates, invitations, escort cards, programs, flower girl dress, and more. When I first met with Denise, I was unsure of exactly what I was looking for. She took the time to get to know me, attended to every detail, and found the perfect designs for my wedding style. The attention to detail, professionalism, and welcoming environment made my experience so special. I am proud to be a Persnickety Bride and highly recommend Denise and her team. Thank you for everything!

    Deserves More Than 5 Stars

    Denise and her team were a pleasure to work with! They were so helpful and accommodating when it came to designing our invitation. They executed beautifully! We also did our wedding favors though her - which were just as amazing!! Our monogrammed moscow mule mugs were a big hit. They deserve more than 5 stars :)

    Denise and her staff are simply the best! You will feel like their only client. They pay attention to what you want and just as importantly, what you don’t want. This is as high-end and exclusive as you can get. Every woman wants to feel special when she’s picking out her wedding dress and accessories and at The Persnickety Bride, you feel like a royal princess. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Denise and her entire team at The Persnickety Bride were amazing to work with. At our initial meeting, Denise quickly understood the look I was going for and helped me to design the gorgeous invitations I envisioned. From the initial order to proof approval to arrival, everything went impeccably. I am so pleased with the quality of our invitations. Our guests who received them had nothing but positive things to say. Working with Denise was such a pleasure and I highly recommend her!

    Denise is the epitome of energy, experience, and style. The invitations we received for our wedding had our guests talking! The quality was outstanding to say the least. We loved them so much; we framed one to put up in our house. Denise will put every last effort in to customizing your invitation to reflect the couple’s taste, color scheme and overall budget. My husband and I had two different religious ceremonies. Denise had many various styled invitation offerings and was able to tailor our visions to exactly what we wanted and needed. Her spunky personality and creativity made it easy and fun to work with her. What’s more, she genuinely cares about the couple and her product and will ensure that happiness and satisfaction is achieved. The Persnickety Bride is a must-see gem hidden in Newtown.

Do things a little different and make everything their very own. That's exactly what both of you did! Make something really beautiful out of what was a completely different design. Can't wait to see you and see pictures of the wedding!!! Talk soon xoxo Denise

    Thank you so much Nicole for your lovely review. Our "Persnickety Bride" Nicole bought her wedding invitations on line from us after having been referred to our company. First she ordered a couple samples and those went out very quickly. Once she had the samples in hand and saw the quality - she ordered them very quickly. They shipped in no time. The suite of papers are beautiful - she made a terrific choice. Thank you so much again Nicole for shopping with The Persnickety Bride. We appreciate your business and please keep the referrals coming! That's how we end up with great on line couples as well as our in shop couples !

    As the mother of the bride, Denise and Bridget made our invitation experience enjoyable and stress free! With so many irons in the fire for a wedding this was truly a blessing to have them "take care of us". Their selection of invitations and vendors were all beautiful and they worked tirelessly with us to create a unique invitation that was truly elegant and exactly what my daughter wanted. Any corrections were taken care of immediately and always with a smile. Thank you Denise and Bridget for making our invitation experience so much fun!

    Denise and Bridget were wonderful to work with! They made an otherwise stressful experience very pleasant. At first I thought I was going to use a discounted website to make my invitations, to save money, but quickly realized how daunting the task was. I saw Denise's ratings on the knot and decided to get a quote from her. Not only was her quote comparable to the wedding invitation websites, but she did a tremendous amount of work that I would otherwise have to do! I took a landscape, navy blue invitation and transformed it into a portrait cream and black invitation and took off the motif. She basically created my invitation from scratch based on what I explained to her and it was PERFECT! Her and Bridget were so easy to communicate with and granted every single wish we had. I cannot recommend them enough!

    Denise was a dream to work with. With great patience, warmth and care for every detail and for quality, she made our wedding process and day feel special with the most unique and beautiful invitations. She was a savior As I work full time and had little knowledge of the invitation options. She helped me choose exceptional and elegant invitations and notes that fit my style and budget just perfectly. She showed me a variety of choices within my budget And instantly got to know What we needed and wanted. Orders were received on time and with no stress to us. She held our hands with care and humor through the invitation and thank you card process and kept us going with great communication and care for every detail. Her staff was equally caring for our special requests. Working with Denise on invitations, gift options and making our wedding day go smoothly from invitation to thank you notes and stationary made it all go so easily for us and great efforts on their part. We had deadlines and no time. Denise made it happen. She also has a list of high quality vendors and resources that made my wedding special. She was incredibly supportive and caring for alll that I wanted in my special day. For quality and care for your special day, I recommend highly the persnickety bride and promotions.

    Cindy - You had me at "I need help" - I am so grateful that this business brings me some really sweet and appreciate clients. Clients I hope to call my "new friends" - you are a lovely, gracious woman and I truly loved working with you. So did my staff. You had a vision and I am happy we had the chance to work with you on such an important day and milestone for you and Andy. May you enjoy a lifetime of wedding bliss with good health and happiness always. We definitely need to do wine or coffee soon xoxo Denise
