Real Bride Jill
Dress Designer: Paloma Blanca
Wedding Date: January 18, 2020
Location Purchased From: Massapequa
Experience: This was the second (and last) shop I went to when trying on dresses. I wanted a fairly simple top to my dress with a horsehair bottom — I hate shopping, and had little patience when trying on dresses. My consultant, Jodi, however, was very patient and non-pushy. Because she had spent enough time really listening to what I was looking for, Jodi suggested altering the top of a dress I had previously tried on. As soon as she pinned up the top with the modifications I said “yes” to the dress. I’m so thankful for Jodi because without that idea I probably would have went to lots of other stores just dreading the process. My Mom and I went back to the salon to purchase my veil, belt, and headpiece. All were absolutely stunning; again, Jodi was my consultant and helped us pick out the perfect pieces to compliment my dress. My alterations were completed by Angel and she is fantastic at what she does. She saw issues before I could even point them out and she’s such a masterful seamstress! My dress fit perfectly the day-of!
