Started shopping 4 mths before my wedding & so thankful I found Mayfair! Went to 5 other places before Mayfair & they were by far the best. I went with pictures of dresses I liked & the woman who assisted me (Valida) was amazing! She was so patient & help me find the perfect dress. It takes about 3 mths for a dress to come in but it arrived exactly when promised. The seamstress did an excellent job & within 2 wks I had my dress. Although it is a small shop & space is tight, if you go a minimum of 4 mths before your wedding date with pictures of what you're looking for they will do all they can to assist you.
