It was my first time shopping for my wedding dress, so I really only expected to figure out what style I liked best. However, by the fifth dress it was obvious I had found the one – a beautifully romantic Justin Alexander fit and flare from the Persnickety Bride. My mom and future mother-in-law spotted it in the store, but Denise knew it was out of my initial price range. I really appreciated her transparency and was grateful that she didn’t pressure me to try it on, but to appease the moms, I agreed to do so anyways. Of course, it was perfect and not like anything I thought I would’ve picked for myself. Both moms were in tears when I came out of the dressing room – it was a bonding moment, topped off with some bubbly. I recently picked up my dress and am amazed as to how perfectly it fits! Denise did an impeccable job with taking the measurements and because of that, I need very minimal adjustments. She and her staff were so wonderful with us and Denise’s enthusiastic personality made the entire experience painless and so enjoyable. I especially love her non-salesy approach – there’s enough pressure to go around when it comes to planning a wedding, so not having the added stress of a pushy salesperson is all I could have hoped for. I cannot wait to wear my dress in December!
