Testimonials

Over the years we’ve helped make thousands of brides truly happy brides!  Below, you’ll learn how we do it from words of the happy brides themselves.

Dear Dulce,

What started as a joyful search for the “dream gown “ has turned into an stressful  experience.
I thought I had found my wedding gown after visiting two stores and having tried about 8 dresses
my family and friends insisted  I needed to explore all the options, now I find myself confused with
so many options and so many opinions. A friend told me to ask advise  from an experience bridal
consultant , I am not in Miami  but I like your web page and since I will not be visiting your store I know
you will be a good impartial advisor.

Sandy

Dear Sandy,

You are one many brides who have difficulty making personal and heartfelt decision because
of the unintentional pressure placed upon brides by family members and friends .
My advice to you is: FOLLOW YOU HEART, if you felt a special feeling with your 8th gown then THAT WAS YOUR GOWN.

One common mistake many brides make is allowing too many opinions in the decision making process, while all are well intentioned I’ve seen many brides break down from the pressure of trying to satisfy everyone. Oftentimes mothers, sisters, cousins, grandmothers and friends have different taste in styles than the bride. Always remember it will be YOU walking down the aisle wearing the gown. Ultimately you are the only person that matters on YOUR day

Your mother of course is the most important opinion you want at that magic moment of saying “Yes to The Dress”, most moms are able to fully support your decision. My experience has been mothers simply want to see their daughters happy with a twinkle in their eye when they’ve found their gown.

Another opinion that I find very heartwarming despite oftentimes not being in agreement with the bride’s selection due to generational taste differences is that of grandmothers. Furthermore, sisters and a best friend should be considered for inclusion in the decision.

A good practice is to start trying on gowns alone, find the styles or the gown you like best and then bring your loved ones to show WHAT YOU LIKE. You will be already defining your preference and also letting them know of that preference. You can always include them in the decision making process but you will have eliminated a lot of confusion by already having defined your style. Remember, you must be gentle but firm; this is your day.

Finally, there are thousands of beautiful gowns, but you are more likely to find that VERY SPECIAL GOWN quicker with the assistance of a professional bridal consultant. Consultants are familiar with the different styles and lines. Once you have an understanding of what you’re looking for they can direct you in the best direction. Very important, make sure you provide the consultant your budget; it always saddens me when a bride falls in love with a gown that is unfortunately beyond her means.

Best of luck in the pursue of your Dream Gown

Dulce
