I was so happy to get to meet Tami and work with her for my wedding attire! I was looking for someone to help me clean and basically re-image my mother's veil so I could use it for my wedding. My mother's veil was made specially for her by her godmother, so it is a treasured piece. Tami cleaned the veil so that it practically shone with newness even though it is quite old! It looks amazing. She also took it off of my mother's juliet cap and placed it onto a comb so I can wear it easily in my updo. It is stunning, and the price was so reasonable that I almost didn't believe it. If I can hire Tami and the Great Lakes Wedding Gown Specialists again (for this wedding or a relative's wedding), I absolutely will!

Tami was very helpful and responsive. I bought my dress at a sample sale, so it had quite a few blemishes that needed removal. She did a beautiful job and was very communicative throughout the process.

Great Lakes Wedding Gown Specialists did a wonderful job cleaning my daughter's wedding gown. And her gown was a challenge given it was so large at the bottom with several ruffles. They placed the gown in a large box (chest) for preservation along with a momento and white gloves for handling.

The service was equally wonderful given they came to my home to pick up the gown and delivered it back to my home when finished. I would recommend GLWGS to my family and friends.

Thank you so much for the restoration/cleaning of my mother's 56 year old wedding gown for my daughter. You did an amazing job and it turned out fabulous! My mom was so happy to see her granddaughter wear her wedding gown. It brought tears to my eyes also. It is so wonderful to have a place in the area to provide this service. You picked the dress up from my work in Grand Rapids. Cleaned it in a timely manner and delivered it back to me. Very professional and excellent service!!

September's Bride was so awesome to work with! They really care about the customer's experience and it shows in all that they do. I was lucky and found a silk gown for a steal in their consignment boutique (SB & Beyond) along with a (new) Jennifer Leigh veil. They took care of me every step of the way. Alterations were done fantastically and in a relatively short amount of time. Sherry is seriously a sewing magician. I wish I could buy another gown just to have a reason to give them repeat business. I have been and will continue to refer my friends there! Thanks, September's Bride!!

I used Tami's services from Great Lakes Wedding Gown Specialists to clean and preserve my wedding gown. Our wedding was 7/6/13, but I didn't contact her until November of 2014 (oops! forgot about cleaning my dress!). Tami was immediately responsive by email, AND even came to my house to pick up and drop off my gown! (My home was a 30-45 minute drive for her.) Cleaning and preservation of my gown was exceptional and very professionally done. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!!

Being the father of the bride, and not fully aware of the value a wedding planner adds to the planning process and the actual event, I was a little reluctant to hire a wedding planner.

However, being 9 hours away from the wedding venue and knowing we couldn't stay on top of all the planning and certainly could not "manage" the actual event, we contracted with Rachel at September's Bride in Holland, Michigan.

I cannot praise Rachael and Tiffany highly enough fior all they did. They were absolutely outstanding to work with in every regard and took the entire load of of our shoulders so that we could fully enjoy the moment.

From the earlier in the day set up of the outdoor wedding site to the reception venue and the departing of the bride and groom at the conclusion of the reception, they were on top of every detail.

The best investment you any father of the bride can make is contracting with a professinal wedding planner and September's Bride, with Rachel and Tiffany in particularly, are the best.
