I had to share this wonderful review from bride Shauna who came in this past weekend. Her words mean so much to me and I am so excited for her! Thank you to all my brides for their support!
“I really thought it was going to take me months to find my wedding dress. I’m picky. I don’t know how to articulate what I like. I have strong opinions. This is why I started looking for a dress 14 months before my wedding. So, I came into my appointment with Malinda saying “I’ll try anything!” but thinking “I won’t like anything.” I hoped maybe I’d get a bit closer to figuring out what I wanted, but this experience was SO MUCH MORE. Let me first say: yes, I found my dress! And, yes, it’s my dream dress. In fact, it’s a dress I never would have even thought to dream of. I couldn’t have imagined it. I cannot wait to wear it. I can’t stop looking at pictures of it. I can’t believe it’s handmade with such gorgeous fabrics and was actually not offensively priced. And that’s all super fantastic, but that’s not even what I’m the most jazzed about. I’m mostly jazzed about how freakin’ awesome this boutique and its owner, Malinda is.
First of all, when you make your appointment here, she asks a few questions to get an idea of who you are and what your taste is like. My favorite thing was that she asks for the link to your wedding Pinterest board. For me, this was huge. I take Pinterest very seriously! So, I thought, okay, that’s cool but I wonder if she’ll even look at it – how could she have time to peruse everyone’s wedding pins? I didn’t get my hopes up. But lo and behold, like an angel sent from the wedding heavens – upon our arrival, she greeted myself, my mom and my sister with a huge smile, and immediately started talking about what she thought I was looking for based on my Pinterest board. And she hit the nail right on the head. Honestly, she knew what I wanted more than I did. It was insane. I can’t describe it. You have to just experience it for yourself.
She was sweet, supportive, never said anything negative at all, on any level. She guided me, asked questions, and let me arrive at my own decisions. Though I’m pretty sure she knew which dress I was going to leave with from 15 minutes into the appointment – she respectfully and beautifully managed the process to help me come to a conclusion on my own. She stretched me just enough! I tried on things I never would have thought would work on me – and I honestly liked every single one. And you have to understand – that never happens to me.
She works fast. She chats with you and makes it fun, but she keeps you super on track. I couldn’t believe how fast she got me in and out of each dress. You have the whole, beautiful boutique to yourself for 90 minutes. What she does is just so special. She is amazing at what she does. I simply cannot say enough good things about Your Dream Bridal, and about Malinda. I am so grateful to have found this place!”
