  • I honestly could not have imagined a better experience than at Modern Bride. Michayla was absolutely amazing, this was my first day dress shopping and I ended up finding my dress. I started my day off at another bridal shop and it was terrible, I felt rushed, they didn't listen to me and I was nervous that this is what it was going to be like...I was so wrong. As soon as I walked into Modern Bride I felt welcomed, Michayla listened to what I had to say and asked all the right questions. She made the whole experience unforgettable and I can not say enough wonderful things. Thank you for making this experience every thing I could have ever wanted.
