Thanks to Follia, and more specifically, to Veronica and Antoinette who make visiting there a joy -- I went from a cold-footed bride ready to tackle every wedding detail except for the ones concerning herself to a confident, beaming bride able to check "dress ordered" off her list, within a single week. From the moment I first stepped into the store last Saturday, to tonight when I returned to fall in love with "my dress" all over again and place my order, Follia not only met, but exceeded my every expectation.I never imagined that I would walk into a bridal store and instantly like and trust the people assisting me - but their help was so genuine, their advice SO good, their warmth and sincerity so palpable (and may I also mention their prices so reasonable!), that I instantly felt at ease. In fact, with just a touch of tender encouragement, I quickly and confidently went from "I'm just here to get some ideas"....to "I'll try on everything you suggest I look at!" And, being a detail-oriented, type-A personality, micro-managing bride-to-be, their ability to make me want to reach the next level in dress shopping was nothing short of a miracle. Their personal touch, degree of individualized attention, keen eye and advice, and customer service was unprecedented. At one point, I even remarked to my bridesmaids, "This place makes it less about the dress, and more about really wanting to work with these people throughout the entire process...for some reason I already trust them implicitly!" Thank you Follia, I've never been as excited throughout my entire wedding-planning process as I am tonight! Now I completely understand why I was referred to you by a friend in the first place. Thank you.
Antoinette was such a pleasure to work with when it came to my wedding dress. When I first went in there, I had an idea of the type of dress I wanted. But after trying on a few that I thought was what I wanted, nothing "moved" me yet and I didn't feel like I found "the one". Then Antoinette brought in a dress for me to try one. She knew I wasn't really looking for that type of style, but she insisted that I try it on. She said that this dress would look wonderful with my body type. To please her I tried it on. The second I turned around to look at myself in the mirror, I felt it!!! I saw myself in that dress and immediately saw myself walking down the isle to my fiance in it. I was moved and started crying. I had found "the" dress all because of Antoinette. She is absolutely professional and knows her stuff! She's been doing this for over 30 years and knows how to read a bride. My dress came in exactly when she said it would be.
From the moment I walked in, they treated me and my daughter's bridal party wonderful!! We made an appointment back in November looking for the bridesmaids dresses. Within an hour, we had two different dresses picked out for the bridal party and the maid of honor, plus a gown for my friend who was with us and my mother of the bride dress. They were always so accommodating when we came in. I was sick for my final fitting and they got me in, and had my dress ready in time for my daughter's wedding. When my husband saw me in my dress, he said I was beautiful. I would recommend to everyone!! And when my second daughter plans her wedding, I will go there. I live in Orange Co, and making that hour drive to White Plains was worth it!!
