Location Purchased From: Massapequa
Wedding Gown Designer: James Clifford
Experience at Bridal Reflections: I bought all my wedding day apparel from Bridal Reflections Massapequa. My first visit, my consultant Darnell was absolutely amazing to work with. She was patient, sweet and creative. She spent 3 hours with us! She really took ideas from the pictures I showed her and threw in some of her own ideas as well. Being that I’m short, I fell in love with a gown but the fitted part came down too low on me so it didn’t look right. She hiked up the middle of the dress and called the designer- they ended up making a custom dress for me!! It was a close call though because I received a phone call from them weeks later saying it couldn’t be done. I was extremely upset because I wouldn’t have picked that dress then and had my heart set on it. Roselynn did an amazing job at amending the situation and spoke with the designer’s rep to make sure it was done for me. They had to cut 5-6 inches out of the middle so I was extremely nervous for my first fitting. It fit me like I glove and I barely needed alterations. I felt like I had a custom James Clifford gown!
Our seamstress Zizi was unbelievable. The lace got shipped separately since the dress was custom, so Zizi worked with me to put it on meticulously so that it was flattering to my body. She really knows what she’s doing!! She even fitted my mom’s dress, who was told by one of the other seamstresses that some things couldn’t be done. My mom’s dress was beaded from head to toe and was champagne with sheer taupe chiffon over it. Stunning! We also got my gorgeous headpiece and veil there. They were great quality and had a great selection that I felt I had so much to choose from. Bridal Reflections made my dreams come true. I felt like a princess and I can’t tell you how many people swooned over/raved about my dress! Everything was so amazing I just had to share with you. Thank you ladies!
