My sister found Le Salon Bridal for me. She made 3 appointments for me on the same day. I went to Le Salon Bridal in February 2011 for my first appointment, shortly after getting engaged. I knew what I didn’t want but wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted. I explained to the girls where and when the wedding was, what I didn’t want and they went from there. I tried on maybe 5 gowns and wasn’t really in love with any of them. I had told myself not to get discouraged I still had 2 more appointments. Alexis and Renee said we had time for one more. They brought in a 2 piece gown and I immediately said no way! They asked me to trust them that it was different on the hanger than it was on and that I may really like it. Sure enough I tried it on, put shoes on, a veil, a sash, and walked out to show my parents and sister. Immediately we all fell in love. That was it, we canceled the other 2 appointments. From there I ordered the WToo gown and the veil by Ariel Jennifer Taub Designs. Next were accessories. I was able to order all of my accessories from Le Salon Bridal. My ceremony sash was by Toni Federici, and my reception sash was by Rosa Clara. On to earrings, a bracelet hair piece, and necklace. I fell in love with a bracelet, hair comb, and set of earrings by Thomas Knoell but wasn’t finding a necklace. Alexis was able to put me in contact with Thomas Knoell and over the phone we were able to design a custom necklace. It was shipped out within a week and was absolutely amazing! Next, customizing the dress to fit me and to put my own twist on things. I changed the back of my gown from a corset to an invisible zipper, chose the perfect bustle. All of the work was absolutely perfect. The seamstress was incredible. Overall I couldn’t not have been happier with my dress, veil, and accessories!
