“I had a wonderful experience today.  I felt in no way rushed or judged. As a Curvy woman, I am always preparing myself to be judged.  I was very pleasantly surprised to find there were a number of gowns in your store that were my size or close enough to try on.

The girls who were working made us feel like they were invested in our big day and not just the commission they’d probably make on the dress if I bought it.

Compared to the mad house (store name removed) was this morning and the impersonal craziness that (store name removed) was afterwards, there is zero comparison to your shop.  Mom and I both will certainly be sending friends your way.

Oh, and, worth mentioning, not only did I find MY gown today, my sister, who is my only bridesmaid, and is 11 weeks pregnant, and we’re trying for a May wedding, also found a perfect dress for her.  The color we want and the style she hoped for, and it has a fantastic coordinating look to my gown.  It was a very long day for us, but knowing that I have a beautiful gown that I feel wonderful in and that I will be comfortable in for my whole special day, makes it all worth it.”  ~ Kristine

“I was really nervous about trying on dresses but my stylist made this a really positive experience. She was so patient, attentive and helpful. She didn’t mind when I wanted to try on a dress multiple times and really listened to what I had to say. She used my comments to pick out dresses that I never would have thought to try on and it was one of the dresses she suggested that I ended up loving and purchasing. Overall it was a really nice experience and the morning turned into a really nice bonding moment for my mom, sister and I.  I would recommend Beautiful Brides to any one who would like a relaxed, intimate, no pressure shopping experience.”  ~ Alicia
