I chose to go to Kelly's Kreations when I was looking for my wedding dress because I work and live in Brooklyn and didn't want to travel to Manhattan for fittings. I knew about Kellys because my best friend had gone there and purchased her veil when she got married 13 years ago and had such a great experience. From the moment I walked in, I felt like I was a part of Kellys family. Not only did she greet us with open arms but she actually recognized my friend as one of her "brides"! I told Kelly what I was looking for and all the dresses she sent out for me to try on were absolutely beautiful and accented my curvaceous figure in the right places while hiding what need to be hid. After trying on a few dresses, I decided to not go with any because although the dresses I tried were absolutely gorgeous, they were a little too fancy for my small, intimate, restaurant wedding. As I exited the dressing room, Kelly took one look at my crestfallen face and said "Would you be opposed to wearing a bridesmaids dress?" She knew that I was looking for something on the plain side and suggested a Bill Levkoff dress that she had in stock in black. When I put the dress on, I immediately started crying, even though it was in black! This was it....it was exactly what I was looking for, plus it fit my body type perfectly! Kelly said that she saw how sad I looked and felt that she wanted to make me happy...and she did...she totally did!Fittings were great and timely...dress is gorgeous. I truly can't say enough good things about Kelly and her staff who are also her family members. They truly do make you feel like you are a part of their family. Kelly didn't try to force an expensive wedding gown on me, she listened to my heart and found me the perfect dress and didn't care that it wasn't as expensive as a traditional gown. Another thing, when I went in for my first fitting and told Kelly that my mom had just recently passed, she immediately came out from behind her desk (no small feat as she has had hip surgery) and immediately gave me a huge hug and told me that she was adopting me. And she really did. I can't stress enough how much they all made me feel like I was a part of their family. She made my bittersweet moment so much more sweeter by making my dress shopping experience one of the best moments of my wedding! I would recommend everyone looking for a wedding dress to Kellys Kreations and pray that if I ever have a daughter, she is around for her to buy her dress from!

John and Lori at the Wedding Shoppe have been amazing! We started off just looking for an officiant and ended up also getting jewelry, favors, and invitations from them. They have been so helpful and friendly every time we visit, and will spend as much time as you need helping you make decisions. As an officiant - we haven't had our wedding yet but I know our ceremony is going to be upbeat and personal. John is always smiling and laughing, and has taken the time to get to know us. The jewelry - is gorgeous! I looked for costume jewelry in many places and everything I found was high in price, yet cheap in quality.. until I found the wedding shoppe. For costume jewelry, it really is great quality and affordable. The favors and invitations - They will help you find whatever you're looking for on any budget. I am awful at making decisions about these things and they were very patient with me as I changed my mind over and over again. I had every intention of ordering favors and invitations myself online, but they honestly beat the prices of even the best wholesale websites I could find. If you're getting married - go check out the Wedding Shoppe. They are a great couple who will help you make sure you get everything done that you need to before your wedding day.
To anyone deciding if they should go to Kellys,the answer is YES. I took my daughter here for her wedding gown and I am so pleased with the staff and service, I actually feel bad that I don't have to go back again,we picked up the dress today, these ladies are the best. We did run into problems, the first size ordered was to small, Kelly reordered a larger size and the wonderful and skillful women who work there had to do many alterations to get this gown to fit just right. It was also pressed and put into a garment bag. All this in a 5 month period. The price she charged for the dress was the same price we got from Klinfelds in the city, but Klinfelds was plus alterations, but at Kelly's it included all alterations. YES YOU READ THIS RIGHT ALL INCLUDED AND KELLY MEANT IT I give this shop an A plus. If you need a wedding gown, bridal party dresses,any nice dress for a formal event,.go over to Kelly's, you won't be disappointed

I had an amazing experience at Isabella's Bride! The best part of my experience - my amazing consultant, Alla.Alla was so sweet and patient and knows everything there is to know about each of the dresses and the designers.During my consultation I told her I was looking for a dress with sleeves. We tried on a bunch of dresses, many of which were strapless as the exact style I was looking for was hard to find, and she would bring in different jackets and pieces of fabric and show me what could and could not be done to each dress to make a sleeve. Further, because she is so familiar with the designers, she suggested I come back in a couple of weeks from my original appointment because she knew there would be dresses I would love. She was right! I definitely found the most amazing dress and exactly what I was looking for!Alla was so wonderful as is Isabella's Bride - I clearly highly recommend it!
To sum it up...I had an extremely smooth experience with Kelly, Angela and Anna at Kelly's Kreations! As soon as I walked in the door with my Mom, I felt like family. Kelly and the team DELIVER as they state. I called Kelly in advance, gave her a couple of dresses I would like to try on, she said she had them in stock. I went in, tried them on and picked my Wedding dress :)) Angela and Anna put their touches in alterations and final touches. I would highly recommend this team to my friends.
