Wedding Shoppe Inc.
My friends and I got our bridesmaid dresses from here. We had a ton of fun trying on dresses and they had such a great selection to choose from. We ended up going with the dress we went with because we all have VERY different body types and the one we choose looked super flattering on all of our bodies. At the wedding, the pastors wife even came up to us and said she had been to a ton of weddings but had never seen 3 girls look so beautiful in one dress. What a great compliment to hear, thanks Wedding Shoppe :)

I am writing to tell you about the experience my family and I had at The Wedding Shoppe, Inc. My sister, who was expecting at the time, found her gown in one day and barely had to get any alterations. She felt beautiful and comfortable in a vintage inspired dress by Jasmine. The tux's also had a vintage flair with all the men wearing suspenders. The attire was the perfect fit for an intimate wedding at an old fashioned Bed & Breakfast. We couldn't have asked for better service or experience from The Wedding Shoppe. Thanks!!!

My experience with the Wedding Shoppe began the minute that I became engaged July 2008. I currently live in Texas, but I am originally from the Minneapolis area and having my mom & sister still in the cities, I knew that I wanted my wedding gown journey to begin back there.
In September 2008, I was headed up north due to an Aveda hairshow and Hurricane Ike headed our way along the Texas coastline. So, I figured that would be the perfect time to start dress shopping.
When I had contacted the Wedding Shoppe, I was put in touch with a consultant named Misty, and immediately I knew that she was going to be the perfect person to work with. Before arriving in Minneapolis I had e-mailed Misty some pictures of what I liked and what I had felt would work well with my body type. I also let her know what type of budget that I was working with and how important it was to me to stay within it--including alterations!! Misty reassured me that wouldn't be a problem, and there would be plenty of beautiful gowns to choose from.
When my mom, sister and I arrived at the Wedding Shoppe, we realized that it could be a bit overwhelming, but like Misty had said, "everything would be ok, there are plenty of choices, and she is there to help with whatever we needed". Within a minute of arriving, there was Misty, greeting all of us with a smile on her face. I knew then & trusted that everything she had told me was right and this was the place we would find my gown.
Being a hairstylist myself and in an industry that focus' on beauty all day long, I am one of those people who is not a huge shopper for myself. I prefer to make sure that others are taken care of and feel great about themselves, but in this situation, the role was reversed. Not being a shy person I had asked Misty, "How long is this going to take"? You can tell that she doesn't get asked that question very often, and she replied, "Brides typically will find the gown that they end up with in the first three they try on". After hearing that, I felt relieved and realized that she was right. The first gown that I had tried on was EXACTLY what I had pictured myself wearing on my wedding day!! How awesome for me?! Now, Misty being the professional that she is, and knowing that this is the most important day of your life, she had suggested that I try on a few more gowns. Just to make sure that I was 100% sure. So, I did. In different materials, styles & three or four gowns later, Misty knew I was itching to put that first gown back on. Right then, I knew, that was the gown that I was going to get married in!! But wait!! How much was this fabulous gown?? I was too scared to look myself for the fear I went way over budget, so I made Misty look and she reassured me that we were UNDER BUDGET--by half! Whew! What a relief for me. She is definitely amazing at what she does.
Even though my husband and I are living in Texas, being able to go home and find the gown of my dreams and have the experience that I did with Misty at the Wedding Shoppe, is priceless. I received nothing but five star treatment and I will forever refer my friends and family to head there to get their gown. Thank You! Thank You! to Misty and the Wedding Shoppe! A Very Happy Bride,
