With the strong recommendation of friends who were clients of The Wedding Shoppe, I visited the store with high expectations of being able to find my dream dress. Those expectations were more than met by the friendly and enthusiastic staff and the variety of dress styles and prices. Thank you for helping my wedding dreams come true!

I am proud to say that I purchased everything I needed for my wedding from The Wedding Shoppe! I had an amazing experience buying my gown which made me excited to try all the other departments as well. My bridesmaids loved the selection of dresses for them and the consultants worked with my entire party to find a dress that complimented all their different body types. The tuxedo department spent time with my fiancé and I comparing colors and coat styles and helping us coordinate the wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, and all other accents together. From the day I first stepped into the Shoppe to the day I picked up my perfectly fitted gown at the Alterations house The Wedding Shoppe went above and beyond any quality and customer service expectation I had. We received nothing but compliments on our wedding attire and accessories and I will continue to recommend your Shoppe to everyone I know. Thank you!

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,
