“When I started looking for a dress, I decided to look in both Virginia (where I live) and Ohio (where I’m from). One full day in 4 different types of stores – including high end department stores and small boutiques – in Virginia proved informative but after trying on around 40 dresses I still hadn’t found the right one. I loved aspects of certain dresses, but couldn’t find a gown that had a long, beautiful train, delicate, handmade lace, and customized top beading detail all in one. When I went home to Ohio for Thanksgiving, I decided to give the store All Brides Beautiful a try as my friend had found her dress there. They had a stunning selection – but the beading of one gown stood out to me the moment I saw it on the rack. Bobbie, the owner, and several sales people didn’t let me try on this dress first – I had to try on two others – knowing it could be the one. The moment I put this dress on, I felt more beautiful than I ever have in my life. I’ve never had a dress flatter me in areas I’ve always hoped could be flattered. It already felt like a custom dress because of its exquisite detail. All Brides Beautiful has an amazing seamstress and I wanted just a little more customization – Sadie, who is truly a godsend – actually created a beautiful, custom keyhole neck for my dress and added some of the dress’s lace to the long train. Eddy K made the extra lace order happen and quickly when I needed it – all together truly creating a one of a kind, complete dream dress.” – Kristen
