According to Abby: "I was more nervous to go dress shopping than excited. I had not spent years collecting photos nor did I know the first thing about wedding dress designers.
The man, not the dress, was the most important thing to me, but I still needed to find something exciting to wear! I also have pretty specific taste, often too expensive for my own good, and I was worried that I'd either fall in love with something I couldn't afford or not find anything I liked in the one day I had to shop with my mom and bridesmaids (I currently live in San Francisco and they are all in Chicago.)
Dimitra's Bridal was our first stop and turned out to be the only stop I needed to make. Our entire group was well taken care of and I immediately knew I was in the right place. Luckily for me, Dimitra's was hosting a Francesca Miranda trunk show. I tried on the Claudette dress first and was instantly in love. The cut, the lace, the beads were perfect! The trunk show representative was extremely kind to me, even though I still had several other dress shops to visit that day. I was already feeling certain that the dress was for me, but I went out and visited two additional bridal salons just to be sure. I soon realized that I was comparing everything to that first dress, so I canceled the fourth appointment and raced back to Dimitra's to purchase the dress of my dreams!"
"Dimitra's Bridal Couture was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. They helped me find a wonderful bridal salon in San Francisco to complete the alterations. I cannot recommend their quality service and designer selection enough!"
