Being a plus size girl, I loathed the thought of going wedding dress shopping. This was my second wedding and the second time I purchased my wedding gown from Bridal and Formal. Lacrecia was my consultant both times! She was so incredibly helpful with my indecision and patient with my husband’s humor. She gave amazing guidance to help me choose the PERFECT gown. The dress I ultimately went with was polar opposite of what I had in mind, but it was perfect for me and I felt incredibly beautiful in my designer Lazaro gown! There was a small snafu with the embellishment that was incorrectly sent by the designer, but both the design house and Tina solved the problem quickly and to my approval. I had and will continue to recommend Bridal and Formal to any bride I work with! Lacrecia is sweet and patient! I had a really hard time choosing a gown due to my plus size. She guided me to the perfect dress that I loved wearing! Tina helped to quickly solve a problem within days of my wedding! The designer had sent the wrong size embellishment belt for my dress. She had it exchanged and FedExed to me by the Wednesday before my wedding. I didn’t end up wearing it, but I appreciated the attention to detail and customer service!
My favorite memories of the day include my youngest daughter stealing the show as she “dropped” petals down the aisle that ultimately ended in the train of her flower girl dress and her giggle fits following. My oldest daughter giving the funniest and sweetest toast at the reception and finally marring the man of my dreams 18 years after we first met!
