So Far, So Good... (To be continued...)
I was a little nervous about visiting Bridals by Lori after reading some of these reviews. However, the day after Christmas, I braved the masses and made my way to Sandy Spring Circle for my first "session" at the salon. I was paired with Cindy and wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was alone and apprehensive about what type of reception I would receive since everyone else there was with a group of people.
I explained to Cindy exactly what I had in mind and my vision for the day and she was quite helpful! She helped me with veil suggestions, adding a "special touch," accessorizing, and my actual vision for the day. When I found THE dress, I shared a story with her about how I told my future mother-in-law that I would NOT cry when I found THE DRESS! Then I shared with her why I was alone. My mother has been very, very ill for the last 2 years and couldn't make the trip. I told her how my holidays had been bittersweet not having my family there and that I was concerned that my mother may not be will before my November wedding. Then she hugged me and shed a tear with me.
Flori (another consultant) helped us with a belt/sash for that added "pop" and couldn't have been more helpful!
I still have to go through alterations and such but I have such a wonderful feeling about this place so far...
