Karoza Bridal Inc.
First experience was good. I found a couple dresses I liked and the girl that helped me was very sweet. Second experience a week later...HORRIBLE!!! I am in NO way a bridezilla BTW. My sales person Marlena was a total Biotch. She never once pulled down the crinoline, did not even try to zip up the dresses or clip them or at least hold the back so I could get an idea of what it looked like. She even kept opening the door to show my mom and bridesmaid before I even had the dress all the way on (ie. my chest was totally exposed and naked). Even after my mom mentioned that there was a man in the store and we should be more careful, she kept doing it! So rude! When we asked if we could take a picture of me in the dress, it was as if we asked about a matter of national security. Originally, I had planned to get my dress, accessories and bridesmaid dresses there (after my first experience), but now...NO WAY!! I even called the next day to let them know very nicely that I did not have a good experience and that I know others have had bad experiences with Marlena. However, Rosa blew me off and said that most everyone loves her. She really did not care that I had a very negative experience.

I highly recommend pussycat pinups for B-Pics. Beth was the photographer and Micheline did my hair and makeup and they were both AWESOME!! I felt totally comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. They are so chill and easy to work with. Beth was VERY quick to get back to me every time I emailed her and emailed my proofs and my edited photos very fast!!! Thank goodness because I had my photoshoot just 3 weeks before my wedding. :) I can't say enough about my experience and I suggest EVERY woman do this at least once in their life. I am by no means a skinny girl; in fact I'm a size 14/16 and yet I felt beautiful, sexy and amazing. Remember your FI loves you and your body for a reason so why not give him the gift of you!!

So far so good. I ordered my beautiful Maggie Sottero dress from Mariposa after receiving phenomenal service from Lindsay, my bridal consultant. I did see this dress for a lesser price and at a store closer to my home, however since they were the salon that had my dress in store to try on, and because the service I received was so good...I felt they deserved my business. Lindsay stayed late (well past closing time) while I twirled in my dress and decided if this was "the one", played around with jewelry and veil options and then completed my order. I am not a tiny bride, so most of the samples did not fit properly, but Lindsay did a great job of working with the dress and getting it on me so I could get the best idea possible of what the dress would look like. Other salons would barely put the dress on me or pull in down all the way. I also ordered my BM dresses and wedding day jewelry here. The only pieces that have arrived so far are the jewelry, but they arrived fairly quickly and looked great!! I will follow up with my experience once me and my girls receive our dresses.
