I’ve often heard people say that their wedding day was the best day of their life. I didn’t believe it until our big day finally came.
March 12, 2010: The proposal came unexpectedly. Completely. My family flew out to Palm Springs, California for a week-long family vacation of golfing, tanning and relaxing. My then-boyfriend Josh met us out there and (to make a long story short) popped the big question overlooking the beautiful Shadow Ridge Golf Course within hours of our arrival.
The next day, since Josh and I (crazily) decided to plan our wedding for August 2010, the planning began. Our vacation turned into one big wedding planning festival. My poor dad hung in there with my mom and I as we immediately started compiling the guest list, possible venue choices, photographers, caterers, florists… and on and on. Overwhelming to say the least.
My life became a constant blur of color schemes, budget sheets, wedding gowns and cupcakes. I remember somewhere in the midst of all the craziness telling one of my bridesmaids that “anyone who says that this wedding planning stuff is fun, is seriously delusional.” Then, I found it. “THE DRESS.” The moment where your breath catches and you know that you found the dress you’ll be wearing when you promise to spend the rest of your life with the man you love more than anything in the world. It’s indescribable. When the woman helping me at The Wedding Shoppe saw the look on my face, she knew. I turned to her and said, “Do I pay now or later?” And that was it. August 6, 2010: Our wedding day. The whole day came and went like a flash of lightning. It was short but spectacular. Walking down the aisle, I felt the presence of everyone I love, standing up for Josh and I, supporting us as we made the ultimate commitment to each other. And in that one moment, when we looked at each other, the world stopped for us. Just for a minute, one incredible minute.

I visited the Wedding Shoppe in the spring of 2009 to start my prom dress shopping. I was greeted by a friendly employee who was more than happy to help me. Her name was Kimberly Contreras. She helped me make my selections of dresses I would try on. She then helped me get in and out of all the dresses and gave me helpful feedback. My final choice was a magenta mermaid dress that I fell in love with. About 2 weeks before prom, I went back to the Wedding Shoppe to get measured for my alterations. The woman that helped me, Elsa, also made me feel very comfortable and was great at what she did. I loved my dress and it fit perfectly! I couldn't have been any happier with the services that the Wedding Shoppe provided me with! I would definitely go back again!

I just wanted to thank you for being an AMAZING store! I know you probably get a ton of pictures of dresses, but your staff really helped me a lot. They helped pick out a dress that EVERYONE loved and made me looked like a princess. Thank you!
