WeddingWire The Bridal Connection Reviews, Best Wedding Dresses in Des Moines, Sioux City - 2015 Couples' Choice Award Winner

I cannot recommend the Bridal Connection enough. This was the first place I went to shop for my dress. I went in with hundreds of hours of "Say Yes to the Dress" under my belt and no idea what I wanted besides simple and elegant. My consultant took the time to have a conversations with me about my everyday style. She let me pull 4 dressed that I liked aspects of and then from what I liked about each dress she pulled me 4 more.

We analyzed each dress, talked about what I liked and didn't like, if I was comfortable and how the fit was. She pulled 4 more and then we found it, the PERFECT dress. My consultant gave me her complete attention for 90 minutes and truly listened to me. I bought the dress that day, even though I had more dress appointments set up the next day at a chain-store for dresses.

They had my dress in six months later and we started fittings. I gained some width in my chest and arms during the planning (thank you wedding work outs) and they were able to make it fit even though I went up an entire dress size in my chest. Everyone here, from the front desk to the alterations, were amazing. They knew just the right kind of humor to use to put a bride at easy and had expert opinions. It may cost more than a chain wedding store but I can tell you that every single penny will be worth it, and will go towards making your special day easier and you a more beautiful bride.
