I chose to go to Kelly's Kreations when I was looking for my wedding dress because I work and live in Brooklyn and didn't want to travel to Manhattan for fittings. I knew about Kellys because my best friend had gone there and purchased her veil when she got married 13 years ago and had such a great experience. From the moment I walked in, I felt like I was a part of Kellys family. Not only did she greet us with open arms but she actually recognized my friend as one of her "brides"! I told Kelly what I was looking for and all the dresses she sent out for me to try on were absolutely beautiful and accented my curvaceous figure in the right places while hiding what need to be hid. After trying on a few dresses, I decided to not go with any because although the dresses I tried were absolutely gorgeous, they were a little too fancy for my small, intimate, restaurant wedding. As I exited the dressing room, Kelly took one look at my crestfallen face and said "Would you be opposed to wearing a bridesmaids dress?" She knew that I was looking for something on the plain side and suggested a Bill Levkoff dress that she had in stock in black. When I put the dress on, I immediately started crying, even though it was in black! This was it....it was exactly what I was looking for, plus it fit my body type perfectly! Kelly said that she saw how sad I looked and felt that she wanted to make me happy...and she did...she totally did! Fittings were great and timely...dress is gorgeous. I truly can't say enough good things about Kelly and her staff who are also her family members. They truly do make you feel like you are a part of their family. Kelly didn't try to force an expensive wedding gown on me, she listened to my heart and found me the perfect dress and didn't care that it wasn't as expensive as a traditional gown. Another thing, when I went in for my first fitting and told Kelly that my mom had just recently passed, she immediately came out from behind her desk (no small feat as she has had hip surgery) and immediately gave me a huge hug and told me that she was adopting me. And she really did. I can't stress enough how much they all made me feel like I was a part of their family. She made my bittersweet moment so much more sweeter by making my dress shopping experience one of the best moments of my wedding! I would recommend everyone looking for a wedding dress to Kellys Kreations and pray that if I ever have a daughter, she is around for her to buy her dress from!
O-M-G. best time EVER. working with MOET & STEPHANIE made my experience at LESTANS the best ever!! i read some reviews online and i saw some awful things but i figured, hey, i might as well just give it a try. it was a saturday and i went in and it was a bit crowded upstairs but i was told i had to go to the bridal department. when i got their i saw a girl wearing a veil come up to me introducing herself as STEPHANIE asking how can she help me. i was histerical and thought it was the cutest thing that she was wearing a veil. any ways i told her what i wanted and she quickly seemed DELIGHTED to help me. she then introduced MOET and they both seemed serious about finding me the perfect dress. i told them i was ONLY looking but they quickly changed my mind. they showed me the most beautiful beaded lace dress and i fell madly in love. i ordered the dress and when it came in i was sure to do my fitting when moet and stephanie were both there. i felt so beautiful it was just an amazing feeling. because my dress was laced up in the back and so were my bridesmaids i was terrified about what i was going to do on my wedding day. when i mentioned my fear, steph and moet quickly offered their services to help me. they wer absolutley wonderful. they helped me get dressed, they helped my girls get dressed and they helped me throughout the whole wedding. during the reception i wanted my dress loosened and they quickly helped me. if anyone wants their wedding day to be perfect, GO TO LESTANS AND ASK FOR MOET AND STEPHANIE. YOU WILL NOTTTTTT BE DISAPPOINTED.
John and Lori at the Wedding Shoppe have been amazing! We started off just looking for an officiant and ended up also getting jewelry, favors, and invitations from them. They have been so helpful and friendly every time we visit, and will spend as much time as you need helping you make decisions. As an officiant - we haven't had our wedding yet but I know our ceremony is going to be upbeat and personal. John is always smiling and laughing, and has taken the time to get to know us. The jewelry - is gorgeous! I looked for costume jewelry in many places and everything I found was high in price, yet cheap in quality.. until I found the wedding shoppe. For costume jewelry, it really is great quality and affordable. The favors and invitations - They will help you find whatever you're looking for on any budget. I am awful at making decisions about these things and they were very patient with me as I changed my mind over and over again. I had every intention of ordering favors and invitations myself online, but they honestly beat the prices of even the best wholesale websites I could find. If you're getting married - go check out the Wedding Shoppe. They are a great couple who will help you make sure you get everything done that you need to before your wedding day.
