COVID19: Bridal and Formal Store Policy

The Wedding of Denae & Justin

As a former employee, I knew I’d always come back for my wedding. The selection at bridal and formal is unlike any other, and the bridal consultants truly love what they do. Iris is phenomenal. She understood right from the beginning what I was looking for, and was so patient with me. I think I tried on 30 different dresses before we narrowed it down to our final two. I laugh looking back, as the two were complete opposites. One, a ball gown with beautiful lace sleeves, the other, a fitted mermaid style with an open back and intricate beading. Lisa ultimately helped me see the difference in the two dresses when she said, “Remember that people are going to be looking at your back for the majority of the ceremony, knowing that, which dress do you love from every angle?” The answer was very clear. I LOVE my Kenneth Winston gown, and the veil was the perfect addition. I’m so grateful for my experience at bridal and formal, their honesty, attention to detail, and genuine excitement makes the experience so memorable.

Iris is phenomenal. She can clearly understand your vision, and pull
options or make suggestions according to your requests. She is mindful of
budget, and knows which designers will be the best option given the amount of time you have until your big day. Iris is very patient and will not rush you into making a decision, and will remind you that it is YOUR day, so you have to love the dress you choose. I had such a great time working with Iris, and will continue to recommend her to any bride to be!

Our wedding day was magical, the best day of my life!
I remember waking up, so calm and ready. I went to the gym that morning, then relaxed in hair and makeup. To my surprise, I was very chill the entire day. Even when it began to rain, I’m like, “ok, no big deal!” So, we get to our venue and the rain blows over. We begin with pictures, and I remember feeling so beautiful and confident. It’s crazy to think that I picked that dress in December and didn’t wear it until September. After all that time, the details become a blur, especially with wedding planning. However, I fell in love with my dress all over again. The beading, the lace, the train, and long veil, I couldn’t wait for Justin to see it. My emotions didn’t hit me, until I started walking down the aisle and looked at my Husband to be. It was just he and I, everything else just background noise. Our ceremony was short and sweet, and we were on to the reception! Everyone says the day goes by so fast, and it’s true, I wish I could’ve slowed down time. We had a wonderful evening surrounded by such loving friends and family.
