( 4.4 / 5.0 )
Jenny herself helped me, and her staff also helped my maid of honour purchase her dress. My experiences were all exceedingly positive. I had heard negative stories going in and was quite nervous, but was also aware Jenny's had the best selection in the city so my mother convinced me to try them.

Jenny is blunt and will tell you if you don't look good in something - along the lines of "that dress is unfortunately not meant for your body shape" - and will follow it up with a suggestion for another style. I was happy with this service, because I agreed with her. I didn't want to end up with a dress where you could see the outline of my belly button clearly enunciated through the fabric. I found a beautiful dress, that I would never have tried on otherwise, but that still fits with the vision I had coming in. Jenny even found a way to tie in the quirky bright blue shoes I wanted to wear. And when the dress I loved was 50% over budget, she found one that was similar, that was under budget for me to try. They do in house alterations, and she does insist you leave the dress there until those alterations have been done.

When my MOH and I were shopping, it was a stressful experience for us. She is plus size and never wears dresses. As is - in the 15 years I have known her, I have never seen her wear a dress, ever. Emily, the sales assistant who helped us, was simply amazing. She didn't once get frustrated, snicker, or make a rude comment (nor did anyone else). In fact, when we went to The Dress Bridal afterwards, the sales assistant who helped us kept insisting she knew what my MOH should wear and when my MOH didn't like it - she just walked away, leaving my MOH stuck in a corseted dress. We returned to Jenny's to purchase in part because the service there was so much better.
