Gloria Wong Design
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband and I got married last September, but for a good four months before the wedding, we actually felt more "married" to Gloria, our wonderful, sweet, and thoughtful wedding designer. She encouraged us to reach within ourselves to find design elements that would reflect our personalities, and allow our guests to learn a little bit more about us on our special day. We were in awe of the final results, but more than the beauty and the compiling of all the little, unique details that made our wedding so much fun, we enjoyed the very hands-on process she led us through... And after the wedding, we definitely felt at a loss, as we no longer had any excuses (or, rather, "emergencies") with which to pester our petite, little friend. Gloria, thank you SO very much for your superior effort, attention to detail, organizational skills, balanced sense of taste, level-headed grasp of our budget concerns, and, most of all, for your friendship and consideration. Anyone who hires your services can count themselves very lucky!

This was the 3rd bridal shop I visited, after Marina Morrison and Trudy's. Denise, my consultant, was very patient and willing to take down any of the dresses displayed in the window that I wished to try out. (This, to me, was very important, because at Trudy's the consultant simply wouldn't let me try on the dress I wanted to. She kept pulling dresses that were, 'similar in shape and design,' but just not the ones I asked specifically to try on.) Denise also went to the trouble to lace up every dress properly, and really took my comments to heart. I ended up buying my dress and veil from her, and two weeks later, went to try on bridesmaid dresses. This time Denise wasn't there, but my friend and I were allowed to try on as many as we wanted AND take pictures of them. I love the manager there as well, she's young, but has potential. The reason why they get 4 stars and not 5 is because the store could be better organized. The dresses themselves are lovely, but the surroundings make it feel a bit factory outlet-y.
