The Bridal Finery real bride, Jenn shares how she found her wedding dress, her experience at The Bridal Finery, and tips for other brides.
Congratulations to real bride, Jenn who said 'I do' in Arizona. We loved her classic wedding gown paired with her whimsical venue. A bride's wedding dress is a garment she should feel beautiful & one a kind in. Every bride should feel the way Jenn felt in her gown.
What was your experience like at The Bridal Finery?
Tali, Roberta and everyone at The Bridal Finery are absolutely amazing! I came to them three weeks before my out-of-state wedding panicked because my original dress was no longer an option for me to wear. They truly saved the day! Tali was beyond patient and kind. She let me ask a million questions and I could tell had deep knowledge and experience in bridal fashion. Even before I had tried a dress on, Tali could tell me how the dress would look and fit on me. As a details person myself, I was blown away by how they had literally thought of everything. Need some Spanx? Sure let me get your size from the back! Want to try in earrings? Here let me get an alcohol pad to clean them off first. There is no detail too big or too small for them. They use that approach when working a bride too. During my last fitting Tali and their amazing seamstress stood there debating if I should keep or remove a single button on the back of the dress. I never felt rushed, judged or forced into something that didn’t fit my personality. I loved each of my shopping and fitting sessions – so much so that I want them to hire me!
I wish The Bridal Finery had been my one and only bridal shopping experience. However, it was truly meant to be since they weren’t even open when I was originally shopping for my dress. The Bridal Finery has already made ripples in the bridal fashion market and is going to continue to do so for many years to come. Not only have they changed how dresses are sold with their off-the-rack inventory – but they have made the entire experience enjoyable and unforgettable!
How did you know you found your wedding dress?
Having found what, I thought was “the one”, many months earlier, I walked into The Bridal Finery not expecting to find anything. I was blown away by the variety and volume of inventory. I tried on a handful of dresses, but when I put on Mercer Sareh Nouri it was an out of body experience. I suddenly felt like a bride. It’s very cliché to say, but it’s true. All of the dresses are beautiful, well made gowns. So it’s hard to pick out which one is the most beautiful, but when you put the right one on - you know.
What is one tip for a bride in search of finding her wedding dress?
Looking back there are two things that I wish I had known before I started dress shopping. First, find a bridal shop that you are comfortable with. I had a miserable experience at a high-end, well known shop where my consultant kept putting me in gowns that were the exact opposite of what I’d told her I wanted. The Bridal Finery was the complete opposite of that experience! Second is to be open. You want to keep a open mind to finding a dream dress that you didn’t know would be your dream dress.
