04/06/2015The Bridal Shop At The Avenues
Naturally, I was nervous about trying on wedding dresses and put it off for the first 6 months of my engagement. I was sure nothing would fit and the sales person wouldn't understand my goals. How wrong I was!! I was helped by Kaylee at Debra's Bridal Shop at the Avenues, and she went above and beyond in our time together. She assured me there was no reason to rush, she encouraged me to be open-minded, and by the end of it, I felt like I was shopping with a friend. Also, I should add, a floor sample did fit me and I was able to buy it then on the spot and even took home my dress that day. Debra's was a warm environment, filled with some of the best designers, and constantly running promotions. As a bride with a budget, I certainly appreciated it! My only tips would be to avoid going on the weekend as they have one "stage" that you have to share with other brides trying on dresses. On a weekday, this may be easier. Also, make sure you close the curtain to your dressing room, I came back to my room one time to find another bride's mother taking a dress from my room - it turned out to be THE dress!
Bridals & More is the absolute best!!! Having only a few months until I was getting married and not being able to find a dress anywhere that I was really in love with, Bridals & more went the extra mile in every way possible. I had a few different styles in mind, but with the wedding fast-approaching and some dresses not being able to order in time, they first had me try on every style that I liked to narrow down which style I loved the most. That way we only spent time looking at dresses that were guaranteed to be delivered to their boutique in time for the wedding. This helped tremendously not only for picking out the perfect dress, but also saved so much time! The dress we found was perfect and their help was so invaluable!!! I highly recommend Bridals & More for your wedding dress, alterations AND cleaning/preserving it after your big day!!!
