Warning to my fellow brides, Moni is not the easiest person to work with!

I ended up finding my dream wedding dress at Moni’s and I couldn’t wait to place my order. I’m very tall (6ft) so my biggest fear was that my dress would be too short. Moni took my measurements and assured me that length would not be an issue. My measurements put me in between two sizes and Moni recommended that I go with the smaller size. Almost 7 months later my dress finally arrived and I couldn't wait to try it on. Unfortunately, the dress was WAY TOO SMALL. As I was fighting back the tears, I looked to Moni for a resolution and she was incredibly rude. She took no responsibility for the mistake and instead placed the blame on me.

Luckily, she ended up having a sample dress of the same style I had ordered, but it was a few sizes larger than I needed. Moni insisted that I take that dress even though I paid for a brand new one. She offered no other solutions and refused to refund any of my money. Because I had to take a dress that was much larger than I needed, the alterations cost me almost as much as the dress itself.

This entire experience added so much stress to an already stressful time, and Moni’s lack of responsibility was unacceptable.

If I had to provide one positive comment about this place, it would be that the other employees were wonderful to work with. They are the saving grace of this salon, and I hope Moni treats them better than she treats her customers!

Just purchased my dress from them! The service was amazing. Gina was the sales consultant that we worked with. She was always honest and pulled the styles I wanted plus had good recommendations for other styles. Found the perfect dress and paired a belt with it. Thank you!

Moni's had a very large selection of dresses which was nice, the staff member that I worked with was very friendly however the owner Moni is a bit pushy. She doesn't like for you to take the dress anywhere else to get it tailored and gives you a hard time when you go pick it up to take it somewhere else. But I loved my dress and overall am happy that we went there.

I bought my wedding gown from this store but I wish I would have bought it somewhere else. My experience was both, good and very bad. Unfortunately the "very bad" part of it is urging me to warn other brides about this place which I definitely do not recommend.
The good part was that the store did have a considerable selection of wedding dresses to choose from. And the speed of the delivery was not bad. Their vendor delivered before the promised delivery date, so that was good.
What was awful, and I mean really awful was customer care and the worst thing is that this bad attitude is initiated and propagated by a petty owner who could care less about treating you with respect and politeness. To her, once you bought a dress from her store, you are at "her mercy". And believe me, she doesn't have that.
Here are the cons:
0. No matter if you made an appointment, if they have other people in the store, they won't pay attention to you (the fitting rooms are very small, don't have a mirror inside and have very poor lighting).
1. There are "tiny" unexpected costs that are not mentioned to you before your purchasing transaction, such as: wedding gown bag ($25 dollars for a pretty cheap bag that you could purchase anywhere else for less money), shipping costs that are not mentioned to you up front, dry cleaning ($120).
2. They will assume that you want your alterations done with the store seamstress (and guess who the seamstress is: the owner). They will suggest to the point of almost feeling forced to incur in spending more money in all these other additions to the gown.
3. When you are having your measurements taken, better don't question or comment about anything or you will get one or many harsh replies from the seamstress.
3. The alteration costs are just another way to abuse. I actually didn't get my gown altered there because of that and the owner almost kidnapped my dress.
4. They will suggest a bigger size for your dress just so you need more alterations.

I had a wonderful shopping experience and Moni's! I got to try on TONS of dresses, not just 3 like so many places. I tried on a bunch! We walked through the rack and clipped all the ones we liked. As soon as I took one off, I had another one waiting. I chose a dress that was full of boning, beading, and an incredibly lacy/beaded hem. Moni made that dress fit me despite being a really big size (which I had to order for my hip size). I was thrilled with the way everything turned out.

Moni and her staff are absolutely amazing! They are courteous and willing to work to help you find the perfect wedding dress of your dreams. Moni even fixed my wedding ceremony dress that another bridal shop ruined and I was able to wear it for my wedding. I also ordered my reception dress from her as well. Moni is incredibly flexible and reasonable--there are no extra hidden costs that some bridal shops are infamous for--you will know exactly what you get, and trust me, it's worth it!

HORRIBLE! First off, DO NOT GET YOUR ALTERATIONS DONE HERE! Moni ruined our bridesmaid dresses with her hack job skills. I actually took them to a different tailor and paid more money to have them fixed because she could not be trusted. When I showed it to the other tailor he said it looks like she was working out of her garage with her eyes closed. It literally looked like a child did the sewing. Some of her staff was nice but most were either rude or unprofessional, especially the woman with bleach blonde hair, she was rude.
I received a call from the staff saying Moni was going out of town for a month (in the middle of prom and bridal season) and that I needed to get my entire bridal party in the store for fittings within days because Moni was leaving next week and wouldn't be back for a while. It completely STRESSED me out, I had people taking off work, driving over on lunch hours, etc. to get there ASAP and magically the next week, and the week after and the week after, moni was still there, no vacation yet. They caused stress and havoc in my and my bridal parties lives for no reason and apparently lied so we would all rush in there faster. The place is a joke and their alterations suck. I thank God I didn't get my wedding gown at Moni's. I can't even imagine. If your looking for a real bridal shop go to Maria's Bridal Couture. I will say our flower girl dress turned out nice, but she barely had to do any alterations to that and of course a little girl is going to look beautiful no matter what. Bottom line - STAY AWAY!

Moni was was extremely helpful and doing everything she could to upsell me during the purchase of my dress, promise me it would be "perfect - I will make it perfect for you". I loved her after I bought the dress. But when it came time for my first fitting - she wanted nothing to do with it or me. I had an appointment for the fitting, and was ignored for over 20 minutes when I got there (the store was slow), once she brought out the dress, I had no direction, had no help get shoes in my size, Moni was not helpful at all, she was rude and did her best to talk me out of any changes. She kept disappearing into the back while I stood in the store in my dress awaiting direction, she would come out for a couple minutes, then go in the back again, and then she came out a last time and told me she would not do my alterations - I should go elsewhere (which by the way would have only been to hem the dress and slightly alter the neckline). Yes - I was fired by Moni as a paying client - I was planning on having her do my alterations, and buy my shoes from her so they could be dyed to match. Admittedly, I was anxious, but not a bridezilla by any means. Apparently once the sale is made, the customer service is over. I would strongly recommend to any bride, bridesmaid, MOB out there to NOT go to this store. I ended up with a beautiful dress which needs altering, but I would never recommend this store to anyone - EVER. I wish I had taken these reviews seriously before I went.

Moni's was great, I found the dress I liked there, ordered it, and they did all the alterations too. My dress got stuck in China during the earthquakes and came about two months late. Moni's was on the phone with the designer and kept me updated before I even had a chance to call them. The only problem I had with them was with the alterations. They charged me an arm and a leg (practically as much as the dress itself cost) for alterations. And I never knew what the cost was going to be until after I had my first fitting. Also, I'm not sure how this happened, but when I went to put on my dress on the wedding day, the clasp at the top of the zipper was broken, well one side of it wasn't there. This ended up being a huge headache for me all day, because my zipper kept coming unzipped. My mom, bridesmaids, and DOC tried to sew it multiple times to no avail. We tried to safety pin it but it wouldn't work. I'm not sure if it was broken during alterations or what. On the plus side, I only had to have the dress altered once, it fit perfectly at the second fitting.

Moni did an excellent job altering mine and my bridesmaids' dresses for my wedding. I will admit, she can have a prickly personality and is not very flexible at times. However, I did not directly experience any of these issues. I was very happy with my experience with her and her staff.

Myself and bridal party had a horrible experience with Moni at her bridal store. I picked out 6 bridesmaids dresses in late October. My wedding is May 6. Moni told me and MOH that i needed to get the bridal party to come in immediately becuase it can take 12 -14 weeks for the dresses to come back AND there was a chance they wouldnt be back in time. Originally we were not planning to put the orders in until early January. But based on Moni convincing speech, I rushed my bridal party to come get fitted and order dresses the week before Thanksgiving. Once Moni placed my order she stated dresses would be back between end of Feb-early March.
Moni called me the 1st week of January stating the dresses were back. I asked what happen and how her estimate was so off, and she lied and stated she never told us the 12-14wks. If we had been given the lead time of 4-6 weeks, we would have waited to place orders till early Jan as originally planned. Moni's information is why we rushed in.

She was rude and threatened to do something with the dresses if the bridal party did not pay in 2 weeks. She called the bridesmaids and was rude and hareased them for payment. It was horrible. I was so frustrated with how we were treated that we paid as agreed and took the dresses and did not alow her to do alterations. Also she measured all the dresses extremely big, so that u have to get major alterations from her. My 14 yr old daughter's dress was 3 sizes to big!

Moni is money hungry! All Brides beware! This was the first time out of 7 months of planning my wedding that i had any vendor behave in such a terrible and unprofessional manor. I would have given 0 stars but the system would not let me.
