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

"I cannot even begin to put into words how wonderful my experience was at The Bridal Connection. The moment I walked into the store, I was acknowledged and helped. My dress consultant was wonderful and listened to all of my needs. I went to the Bridal connection on September 20th for their Justin Alexander Trunk Show. It was my first time even trying on gowns, so I didn't know what to expect and I wasn't planning on buying anything.

My consultant answered all of my questions and made me feel better about the process. She then told me that most brides find their dresses in the first 6 they try on. To be honest, I thought she was joking. I was completely wrong. I found my dress on the FIRST try! The first Justin Alexander dress I tried on, I ended up purchasing. Even when I was unsure if it was the dress (but everyone else seemed to know it was), she talked me through it and told me to try on as many as I wanted to. It only took one more for me to realize that the first one was it.

The Justin Alexander designer was also present during my fitting and helped through the entire process. What a unique experience! He even did my fitting - very cool. I even got 20% off of my dress because I booked through the bridal show! The owner of the store came by to talk to me and my family - she was great as well! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I felt no pressure to buy anything, but I did because their dresses are amazing! I cannot thank them enough for all of their help. It made my dress trying process fun, unique and memorable! I highly recommend them!
