I went with Christine based purely on Knot recommendations. Everyone's raves are totally justified. She is very talented and during the trial, she really took her time and tried out different things to get the perfect shading. I felt as though my makeup was natural and very "me". I didn't look over-done which is exactly the look I was going for. She did my mom's, maid-of-honor's and friend's makeup as well. They all looked beautiful. Christine was very responsive, easy to communicate with and really a lot of fun to have around the day of the wedding while we were all getting ready.

I went to Helen Bohn at the suggestion of a friend of mine that got married a few months before me. I found my dress the first time I tried on gowns there. They have a huge selection in virtually every single price range. I worked with Jen and told her the kind of dress I was looking for and my budget. She brought out dresses that fell within my price range and if she thought there was something that fit what I was looking for but was $100 over my price-range, she would ask my permission before even taking it out of the bag. I appreciated the fact that they didn't try to sell me something outside of my price-range. I adored my gown and the seamstress took a lot of time in getting the alterations perfect. They are no Kleinfeld's (their shop is in an old Victorian-type house), don't fall all over you to get the sale and their honesty in what looks good and what doesn't may be a bit hard for some to take but I genuinely appreciated their help and thought they were great. My mom and bridesmaids also got their dresses and alterations done there.
