The thing I like best about Nordstrom is that you can go into any store and order any of the dresses that they have online, and then you can still return them afterwards. My bridesmaids and maid of honor had found some really beautiful and inexpensive dresses online, but they didn't have them in store. We ordered them, and they arrived a week later. The salesclerk was really great, she helped us figure out what sizes would fit best. The dresses, when the sizes we needed finally arrived, looked great. My favorite part was how great the customer service at Nordstorm was. They were not mad at all about returning or reordering dresses, and she was also really helpful about helping us get the correct measurements.
I would give them a ten if I could! This was where I found the wedding dress of my dreams! It's a huge place, and they have thousands of dresses, but the dresses are really well organized, and the consultants know what's in stock and where everything is. My consultant, Kystal, was amazing, and knew exactly what sort of dress I wanted after I explained to her and showed her the pictures I had brought with me. In twenty minutes I had the dress of my dreams. It was it my price range, and needed minimum alterations. I loved my shopping experience here.
Alterations: The alterations for my dress took place in the same store where I bought the dress. The dress fit me, it just needed to be hemmed and taken in under the arms. The price was really reasonable, and I wanted seamstresses who worked with wedding dresses to look after my dress.
