I have three favorite memories that I would like to share with you! My first memory is seeing my husband’s face when he first saw me. My second memory is that my Dad was able to officiate our wedding. My last memory that I would like to share is getting to wear such a beautiful gown all day and feel like a queen!

I had a great experience with Bridal and Formal. Everyone was so helpful and nice. Although I know they have helped thousands of brides, they still managed to make me feel special.
Norma was very helpful in helping me find my bridal gown. She was full of personality and was just as excited as I was for my big day. She listened to what I liked and found it right away. My wedding gown ended up being the third dress I tried on. I guess third time is a charm!

Thank you!
