Natalie was awesome! I knew I wanted to book with her right after going to the trial. She is so nice and easy to talk to and she put everyone at ease on the day of the wedding. She really listens to you and what you want. I changed how I wanted my hair for the wedding and she was very flexible. My 2 bridesmaids, my mom and I looked beautiful thanks to Natalie! I would highly recommend her.

{seven-degree} was the most amazing place to have a wedding reception. Everyone loved it and it was so different to the standard hotel ballroom. I was working with a budget and they didn't try to up-sell or convince me to get anything extra if I didn't want it. The food was amazing, and the staff there are so incredibly helpful. If I would have to do it all over again...I'd have my wedding at {seven-degree} in a heartbeat! Alyssa was our wedding coordinator there and she was outstanding!!!

I had a great experience at Jinny's! I went to over 10 different bridal salons (from high to low end) on my search and this was by far the best one I went to. The selection is AMAZING!!!! There are so many dresses and the salespeople really help you find the dresses that look best on you. The woman who helped me has retired, but she was AMAZING and every salesperson I was in contact with was fantastic. I found the dress of my dreams there for the right price. I was looking for a dress that was less than a 1000 and told the salesperson that right off the bat and she didn't try to up-sell at all. She stuck to my budget and found me the dress of my dreams. ***My only complaint is with the alterations. I think it could have been a language barrier, but the salesperson who helped me find my dress told me I should bustle it one way (but by the time the dress came in she was already retired) and I tried to explain it to the seamstress and it turned out all wrong. And then we were charged to fix it to a standard bustle. I guess my advice is to really explain in detail what you want and get a clear sense of what you both agree on before you leave. I would definitely add Jinny's Bridal to your list to find your wedding dress. I did not encounter one problem with ordering my dress. You hear all those horror stories about dresses arriving in the wrong color or size...nothing like that happened to me. Jinny's made the dress buying process soooo seamless. Thank you!!

WORST BRIDAL SALON I HAVE EVER BEEN TO. The saleslady didn't even help me put on the dresses. She kind of opened up the dress and handed it to me...and that's IT! Every other bridal salon they help you put it over your head and button it up for you. She brought out the worst looking tattered dresses I have ever seen. I was in shock that they'd let people try on these dresses. One of the 5 dresses I tried out was so terrible looking that told her I wasn't interested in trying it on she told me "Yeah, I haven't seen anyone look good in that dress, but I was running out of options." I went with a friend of mine who found a dress under $2000 there and she had a good experience. She agreed with me at how terrible the experience was for me. I guess it just depends on who you get to help you. Oh, and they make you take your shoes off to enter the all white very creepy dressing area. Everything is white, carpeting, 80s furniture, telephones...it is one strange place. There are so many better places out there to buy your wedding dress.
