I agree with another post about this vendor. She is very nice, friendly and knowledgable when you go to try on dresses. (If you are looking for a fancy bridal store with a dressing room, this is not the place for you) but if you are flexible with appearances of the store, the dresses she has here are beautiful. I found her store through the Watters website. She has a small collection but it is filled with beautiful dresses.

We ordered my dress is September. After much hassling from me and my parents and threats to contact the credit card company, we finally received my dress in the beginning of April. We started calling her in January and each time we called she told us one more month. I recommend getting everything in writing from her, because she is not very organized. We got our alterations done elsewhere due to her disorganization.

I really want to give Julia Elena higher marks than this because she is very friendly, very knowledgeable, and I think she tries to do a good job. That being said, she did make me a little nervous during my planning process. I found Casa Mauricio from looking on the Watters website, and found that this was the closest location to me that sold the dresses I really wanted to take a look at. It's a very small shop, which is nice- not too overwhelming and not as stuffy as a lot of shops. Julia Elena is VERY nice and very enthusiastic. She did a full consultation with me to find out my personality and my vision for my wedding day and she really seemed to understand what I wanted and what would look best for my body type. I tried on a few dresses and found the PERFECT dress, which was actually the very first dress that appealed to me online. We got everything set up and I felt really good about my decision...
After reading a few other reviews online, I had already decided to have my alterations done elsewhere. While Julia Elena does seem to know a lot about fashion and fit, it seems that her time management is not really the best. She has trouble keeping track of records and getting things in on time. At one point, she even lost the check we had sent in for one of the payments on the dress... Other than that, she is a very nice lady and really does have a great eye for picking out the right silhouette for one's body type, but if you are someone who gets stressed out if things are left til the last minute, then just be aware.

I had picked a dress at a different, very snobby dress shop and decided to search for a more accommodating, friendly dress shop to take my business. I found Julia-Elena and while 40 min from my home she gave me the best deal. Her shop is not lavish but for the deal I got- I didn't mind. She seems to be overwhelmed with the business she has and while good for her it was a little trying at times getting her to meet deadlines. I was driving 40 min each way to see her and when I was told to pick up the dress it was "ready"- it was not- after the third time (Wednesday before my wedding) I did pick it up. In the end, my dress turned out beautifully and she made me a gorgeous veil. I feel the service could have been better if she hires some help and doesn't schedule over lapping appointments. Other brides may be stressed by her lack of timeliness.

Julia Elena is such a sweet woman. I came to her with a dress I had found online and she made sure I had it for my rehearsal dinner. She is also an amazing seamstress and worked tirelessly during Hurricane Sandy to ensure I had it in time. She even had me go to her home to try it on to make sure it was perfect. Although her shop is only run by her and she can be out of the store at certain times of the day when you go to meet her, she does get the job done and will make sure you have the dress you need.
