From Josephine: “I had been following LVD bridal on social media well before I should have been. After my fiancé proposed, I kept an even closer eye on their instagram. I immediately made an appointment after seeing that they had a shipment of Hayley Paige dresses in. I showed up to my appointment, overly eager but still unsure of what to expect. Gianna and I discussed my vision and she got right into picking out dresses. The Lorelei was the first dress she put me in. The dress was so perfect that it scared me a little. I tried on at least eight more dresses and left my perfect Lorelei that day. Five days later I returned with my parents. I again tried on a slew of dresses before putting the Lorelei back on, knowing it was the one.
I would like to stress that my absolute favorite part of LVD is that every dress I tried on fit me. I have gone dress shopping with several friends who left other shops crying as they had to add straps to a runway model sized gown to get them in it. We are all women. We deserve to feel confident in our bodies, especially when trying on wedding dresses. The staff, the inventory, the brands and the aesthetics of the shop make for a perfect experience.
And as an ending note, I am a COVID Pandemic, turn your life upside down, reschedule your wedding bride. I reached out to LVD a year and half after purchasing my wedding dress, as I had some concerns about wearing a long sleeved gown in June. Ang completely sympathized with me. We got together, I tried on a few potential reception dresses and she gave me advice. Solid advice, that really helped soothe my Type A – thinks about all the details- mind. This shop not only found me the perfect wedding dress but they also helped in ways I never thought a dress store could. Thank you guys!”
