A Time For Elegance
I found my dress here & at a very good price - 65% off! They are going out of business so they are clearing out the store. They were helpful and patient - I had to go back a couple of times until I found the dress! My mom also found her dress.
Overall I recommend this store. I got my wedding dress cheaper here than another store where I had originally tried on the dress I bought. The store has a very cozy feel, not an uppity trendy store but they have all the items of one. Although they recommend appointments, they did not turn me away when I showed up without one. Everyone in the store were friendly and helpful. The only drawback would be that when I got my dressed altered, it did not turn out exactly as it was explained to me by their contracted tailor.... I believe English is his second language. The wedding dress bustle did not hold during the ceremony and some of the back materials dragged (when shown at the store this did not happen). Also they were mostly flexible but you can't do last minute changes to your dress. You need at least a week for the work to get done... this is pretty reasonable but for some it could be stressful as last minute situations do arise.
This place has great values on discontinued dresses, you can order anything through them at a reasonable and competitive price if you find it somewhere else out of your budget, they probably have a better price for you. I would definitely NOT forget to book your appointments in time because I saw many brides there freaking out....so just make sure you stay organized and on top of scheduling your fittings. They arent very clear on whether to dry clean after all the fittings, just save yourself a headache and GET it dry cleaned after the fittings, your dress is clean and beautiful...I did this last minute and got my dress the day of! So just be careful. Other then that, they do good fitting and make everything really simple to do. I got my wedding dress there for $400, the year before it was a $2000 dress...was not dirty, torn, it was in GREAT shape!
I was recommended by my cousin since she bought her wedding dress here the year before. I almost tried on the same dress as my cousins and the owner even warned me. (such good memory!) When I got my dress it was a bit too big and they also had in-house alteration services and they had the dress to fit me perfectly.
