Experience: My fiancé and I were planning for a summer 2020 wedding when in January 2019 we booked our venue for July 2019. Everyone told me I had to find my dress quickly or I wouldn’t get it in time or I’d be paying crazy express shipping prices. I am probably one of the most indecisive people in the world and to say I was stressed at this point would be an understatement. I went to multiple stores, tried on tons of dresses, and didn’t love anything. I was convinced I would never find a dress where I’d have that “ah ha” moment and I would just have to settle for something because it was crunch time. One evening I made a late night appointment in at Bridal Reflections in Massapequa. My stylist was Lauren (who by the way was amazing!). I didn’t have a dream dress or style so I left it to her to show me a bunch of different styles. I am easily overwhelmed and stressed but Lauren made it so easy pulling dresses within my budget. After trying on 15+ dresses Lauren said something like “This is my favorite dress. Do you want to try it?” I tried on this dress and that was it. 1000% to my surprise I had that “ah ha” moment. My mom, grandma and even some of the employees teared up! I am so thankful and appreciative of Bridal Reflections for their patience and help with one fo the most important parts of my wedding. I even bought my veil and headpiece at a trunk show. And let’s not forget I’d like to give a huge thank you the real MVP, Zizi, for altering my dress to fit me PERFECTLY. I could go on and on but I’ll just say thank you SO much.
