Denver >Bella Bridesmaid
Very nice and helpful!.
I write to alleviate panicked brides that are not finding their dress …and maybe help with the bridesmaid dress dilemma.
I had put off dress shopping until the last hour because I had not been a good girl and dieted as planned and suggested by all the wedding sites. My first dress shopping day at David’s Bridal and Amanda’s Bridal were not pleasant. I did not feel special at either location, while folks helped out, it was like I was a puffy white sheep being herded through a daily process for them. This is my one experience! Plus, I did not like the dresses. Let me tell you, a puffy dress on a puffy girl does not look as beautiful as all those magazine ads portray. I’m not fat, but I’m no twig either. I’m a normal girl, right in that normal BMI zone (ok. High in my BMI zone…whatever, I’m in there). So that day, I learned that the dream wedding dress…the standard issue strapless puffy number…was just not going to look good or right on my 34 year old body. Dismayed, I went to somewhere called Bella Bridesmaid …I’m so so glad I did. They were great. They have non-puffy dresses and actually helped me create (what I hope will be) the perfect, custom!, dress for me. The wonderful girl that helped me out could see that I did like one dress, but was not thrilled with the straplessness of it. So she suggested that I mix the bottom I loved, with one of the tops from the bridesmaid dresses. She called the designer to make sure it could be done, and it could be! I also got to pick out my fabric color and texture! Doesn’t every girl want their own custom dress? Yes. Yes we do. I’ve not gotten it yet, but I am so excited to see it. The ladies there are so helpful, and laid back. I could not be more impressed!
Great selection and service. Bella has a huge selection of dresses and I think I went just about everywhere. The staff was great to work with and very helpful. The have several designers that you can't get anywhere else in town which was great since I really wanted a unique bridesmaid dress not just the typical J crew.
