Country Bride was great to work with. They had a nice selection of dresses at reasonable prices and they offer discounts if you get other pieces for your wedding party. It's a family-owned business, which made me feel comfortable when in the store - there's something about seeing the owner behind the counter. It just makes it an intimate experience, rather than just going to a big name and just being another number. My only complaint was that they didn't insist I order a larger size dress. I was right in between and all wedding dresses run small and I wish they would have made this more of a big deal - I had to work hard and stressed a lot about the dress fitting. Second, the bustle broke before the reception even started, so I had to hold the train of my dress the entire evening (the safety pins we used to repair it ended up breaking 20 minutes later). I'm hoping they'll repair it for me before I get it preserved and will update this depending on what happens, but I haven't called them yet. I would just ask that the loops be reinforced or something so as to prevent it. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends or family though!
I had so much fun with them! NO appointments needed (except for the fittings) and very personal attention. They are totally honest with you about what looks best and flatters your shape. And they have the best sale racks in town!
I got my bracelet and earrings at the Bergner's at Grand Prairie. Looked great- and under $30.00!!! My hair combs were a matching set from Country Bride, and cost under $30.00 also (total) My shoes were also from Country Bride. I also highly recommend Four Seasons (on Brandywine Drive) for SPANX- Your new best friend!
