I wanted to be a bride and wear a wedding dress for as long as I can remember. My wedding day exceeded my dreams as I was “a real life princess!” as shouted a by a few kids at the park where we took our photos. I felt like I was glowing with happiness the whole day and one of my favorite moments was our First Look. Jon turned around and instantly teared up. I was so glad to share that time with him before the ceremony because we could hug each other and cry happily together.
I had been dress shopping for almost two months and, frankly, was exhausted by it when I walked into Bridal and Formal on a Thursday afternoon. However, my feelings quickly changed to excitement as the consultants congratulated me on my engagement and treated me as a VIP. I felt reassured that I would find that I would find my dress, just by the sheer amount of wedding gowns there were to choose from. My consultant did a wonderful job honing in on the style I was looking for and I tried on the most perfect dress. After I said yes to the dress, it was such a fun celebration! I truly felt like a bride for the first time and I have the ladies of Bridal and Formal to thank!
Maura was wonderful! She listened to what type of style I was looking for and was very encouraging during the process. It took a few dresses, but she found the perfect gown that I had never seen anywhere else and I fell in love with it. I’m so thankful Maura was able to work with me that day, I felt so valued and had a great shopping experience at Bridal and Formal!
