I can not express how happy I was with my whole experience with Maryellen & Daisy Tarsi. I went into her store with a certain style in mind, she helped me choose dresses and also suggested trying on a different style she thought would be fitting to my body. The dress she chose for me was BEAUTIFUL!The style I had in mind was quickly replaced by her expert advice. Her and her staff were so responsive and attentive to all my requests. Every fitting Maryellen really worked to make the dress fit perfectly to my body and my taste. The end result was perfect in addition to the perfect veil she found to go with my style. I received tons of compliments on my dress and couldn't have pictured a more beautiful dress for my wedding day. Would recommend this store to any bride :)

This review is for custom gowns at Daisy Tarsi. Maryellen (the owner and designer) and I agreed upon a custom dress back in April of 2014. She sketched the dress and recommended fabrics that she thought would work for what I had described. There were no swatches of fabrics given to me, no portfolio to visualize the scope of work that Maryellen is capable of, the only fabric that was shown to me were of dresses that were in the store. Maryellen was aggressive with her opinion and as a customer who knows little about how fabrics stretch and work, I listened to her opinions because she is in fact the 'expert'. The second red flag was that the deposit is half of the total dress price and due the day you agree on the sketch and the remainder/second half is due at the 1st fitting as per store policy. This means that Maryellen had all of my money before the dress is even completed. The first fitting was great however it was only the skeleton of the dress so really how bad could it have been? The second fitting is when I discover that the fabric on the dress is not fitting as tight as I wanted. I mentioned this to Maryellen and she said that was as tight as this particular fabric could go. Maryellen said she would look into a different fabric for me, however it would come at a cost- this was shocking to me given the fact that THE most important thing about this dress was that I wanted a tight-fitted dress- but I thought ok let's just see what she comes back with and be nice because she has all of your money. Well Maryellen got back to me and said it would be $700 to change the fabric! This is on top of the $2,500.00 that I have already paid. I told Maryellen how unhappy I was and that I would not feel good walking down the aisle with what she had made for me. Basically, her only option for me was to sell the dress, either on my own or in her store as it is her store policy not to issue refunds. It's been over a year and the dress is still there, unsold and I'm out $2,500.

After going to about 5 wedding dress stores I decided to try Daisy Tarsi, where my sister in law had chosen her wedding dress. I had tried on many dresses but none that wowed me or my family. After walking in and telling Anetta what I had in mind she immediately told me she had the dress for me. She was right on the money, the dress she brought out, after I described what I was looking for, ended by being MY dress!! I was absolutely thrilled and felt like a princess the day of my wedding. Daisy Tarsi was very professional and altered my dress perfectly! Thank you so much for all of your help in making my dress a dream come true!! xoxo :)

About 3 months ago I was helping my close friend search for the perfect bridesmaids dresses. We came across Daisy Tarsi and were taken aback by the beautiful window display which truly exemplifies her collection of dresses. Upon entering we were welcomed by the owner herself, and guided us through an extensive selection. This was the first place that provided us with many options since the dresses were all gorgeous!! We finally narrowed it down to one and can't wait to see how they come out on photo!!!. I will continue to recommend ALL friends and family to choose Daisy Tarsi!!!

I got my dress at Daisy Tarsi and it was a wonderful experience. Maryellen and her team were always very nice, professional, and really helped me with exactly what I wanted. They were spot on with their measurements and were able to make adjustments to the dress (higher neckline, shorter train, etc.) with no problem. They even suggested a champagne color liner instead of stark white and it was beautiful. I got so many compliments on my dress at the wedding. Everyone wanted to know who was the designer and they were blown away by the fit. They said it was "made for me." On top of that, the value you get at Daisy Tarsi is hard to beat. I found similar dresses at other stores for almost double the price. I would recommend going to Daisy Tarsi before you commit to a dress anywhere else.

I was the mother of the bride of my first born son. The minute I came in Maryellen Fonte the owner of the store calmed my fears... It was my first wedding as a Mom and the first wedding for all our close friends. I wanted to look modern but also "motherly" not matronly. I brought in pictures Maryellen had me tried on about 6 dresses and came up with her own desigh for me... It was beautiful blue with French lace , very hip yet elegant. Everytime I would go in to try the dress on I would be flustered by the normal dramas of a wedding, Maryellen would clam me down and my dress would go over my head and immediately I would feel better. It was beautiful Wedding Thank God and everybody LOVED MY DRESS...

DO NOT SHOP HERE! I contracted with her to make a wedding dress. It did not look like the picture I showed the owner and in the end, I paid double (4,472.00), and still had to go to another store to buy a dress off the rack. I have nothing to show for my investment, but headache and an argument with Maryellen about asking for a partial refund. Why partial? Because I have no Daisy Tarsi goods, I thought that asking for 1/2 of my investment would cover her costs and be an ethical thing to do.

In her correspondence to my credit card company, Maryellen does not address the fact that I gave her two chances to make the dress I wanted; supplied her with pictures, details, and specifications for each, and both times she produced a product that brought tears to my eyes, and I nearly fainted when trying on the second dress.

Her responses to me can be boiled down to the customer hasn't a right to change their mind about fabric, etc. and I didn't bring shoes to my fitting! (I didn't bring the exact shoes, but I brought ones where the heels were the same height - I ordered my shoes from Helen Heart, and they hadn't come in by the date of my ill-fated final fitting.)

***Months of Agony from November to Mid February***
I understand that some people may have had positive experiences with the store, but her seamstress was sick through Thanksgiving and Christmas and that may have had something to do with my horrible experience. At some point, you would think the owner would just say, "I'm sorry we didn't make the dress you wanted after our second attempt, here's a partial refund, go and find a dress for your wedding."

I went through months of agony over the dress. Thank G-d, that another shop on Miracle Mile saved me. The end result is that I really had a sucky wedding dress experience. Please avoid this store. I would not wish this experience on any bride or groom.

I purchased my wedding gown and had a custom made veil made. Both were absolutely beautiful! The bridesmaids dresses and my mother's dress were also purchased at the shop. We were always treated with the upmost kindness and professionalism. The owner and all of the workers were very patient with the countless alterations and changes that were made. The week of the wedding I had to let my dress out a full inch and a half as I was unable to sit in it due to some weight gain. The owner was very responsive and was able to have it altered with time to spare. They truly took the stress and worry out of the whole process. I will continue to shop here for future special occasions!

Thank you to Maryellen & the entire Daisy Tarsi Family. I was shopping for my own wedding dress only 4 months before the big day. Everyone told me I could only get something ready made off the floor because there was not much time. I found "The Dress" which was designed by Maryellen herself at Daisy Tarsi and I was able to get the design I loved custom made for me with time to spare. The gown selection was lovely, they have both custom design dresses and designer brands. Thank you again for my beautiful dress. I would recommend your store to anyone looking for a customized dress that will be different to anything else on the market.
