I cannot thank enough all the staff of the Modern Bridal especially Denise. The help and service went way beyond expectations, so relaxed and friendly. I would highly recommend any bride-to-be to visit Modern Bridal.

I said yes to the dress in this wonderful store last week. I can't rave enough about the level of customer service I received from Christine. I arrived for my appointment and was promptly brought up to the bridal suite with my party. I could not believe the selection of magnificent gowns. I picked some amazing dresses and then tried them on. Then Christine suggested a few different styles I never would have picked myself. She actually picked out the dress I ended up with. I adore it and can't wait to show it off.
