Sarah & Alex Wood

Congratulations Sarah and Alex Wood!
The service at Bridal Elegance was impeccable from the moment I walked in the door to try on dresses to my final fitting. I was able to share a special afternoon with my mom, mother-in-law, and maid-of-honor finding the perfect dress because Bridal Elegance had everything—beautiful dresses, huge mirrors, attentive staff, even a pedestal—to make me feel like a princess. I was so happy with my own experience finding a dress that my maid-of-honor and I came back for bridesmaid dresses. Throughout the process, the staff was exceptionally accommodating in finding appointment times that worked with my busy schedule. I highly recommend Bridal Elegance for its quality and service. Thank you, Bridal Elegance, for helping my bridal party and me look our best!

Congratulations Laura and Brett Hodgson!

“Other than marrying my best friend and the love of my life, I most looked forward to wearing my dress on my wedding day! It simply made me happy just looking at it! In short, I loved it! I’m not a shopper and I half expected the task to be a chore. Rather it was quite the opposite! My experience at Bridal Elegance, picking out my dress was a highlight of my engagement period. One afternoon, 20 dresses, and five family members’ opinion later I found my perfect dress. Not only that, I had a short engagement period of 4 months and Bridal Elegance was able order my dress and do alterations within this time frame, no problem. Thanks for all your help!”

“I had so much fun wearing the wedding gown, probably a little too much fun since I kept it on clear into the evening during our post reception bonfire. Needless to say I absolutely loved the Maggie Sottero dress and would highly recommend Bridal Elegance for Grand Rapids brides to be. I’ll keep my ears out for Grand Rapids area brides and send them your way!”

“The day was wonderful. Everyone loved my dress and I did too, I felt beautiful and skinnier than ever!
“Everyone was wonderful! You noticed that I had a shorter torso and offered  to order the Petite size, which was exactly what I needed.”
I can’t speak highly enough about my seamstress. She was wonderful! She never rushed me, was always nice, and let me stay in the dress as long as I wanted.”
Thank you, 

Lisa Wiltrout-Welter

Congratulations Laura Dobrzelewski!

“BridalElegance was recommended to me by a friend. Once in your store, I found my dress in 4 tries!  I had gone to a few stores, but because I only had 4 months to plan my wedding…not much was available to me.  Bridal Elegance never made it seem like 4 months was a problem! “


“All of your staff was super helpful and made me feel special.  I could not have asked for a better dress fitting experience.  I received tons of compliments on how beautiful my dress was.  It was the perfect dress for me!”
Thank you!
Laura Anderson Dobrzelewski

 

Laura, you look absolutely stunning!! Your pictures truly capture the happiness and joy of your wedding day! It was a pleasure to work with you and we wish you and your husband the best of luck in your new life together!

Congratulations, Dante’ and Nicole Jones

Wedding in Paradise!

“I wanted to follow up and thank your establishment and Sara. Considering you were booked solid on a busy Saturday afternoon, I envisioned sifting through dresses on my own and waiting in line. Instead, Sara worked diligently with me as I tried on dozens of dresses. Eventually I found not one, but TWO dresses that I love for my destination wedding and the reception back home. I feel tremendously blessed that I found your store. Thank you so much for your patience and accommodating support. ”

Oh, Nicole and Dante’! Is it alright that we’re a little jealous that we weren’t with you on the beach in Cabo when you exchanged your vows? This looks heavenly! No wonder you are already planning a trip back for your first anniversary! We’re not sure we ever could have left! The setting pales only to your beauty, Nicole!

A special thanks to my seamstress – her special skills made my dress look even more outstanding. It takes a skilled hand to put all of those brown crystals on my dress in just the right places. I can not leave out Kristin and Pam who wiped my tears and comforted me in my time of dress distress. Thank you guys, for everything!”

Thank you so much, Shauntrice, for your kind words. You look amazing, and are proof that even if there are bumps in the road, all’s well that ends well. We’re so glad that you loved your gown–it truly was a “one-of-a-kind” by the time we finished, and paled only to your lovely personality.
