OK, I’ve been to almost allll the shops in NH, and many in Mass.
In Nashua, Marry & Tux is fabulous and the best, work with Polly, she’s amazing. Make an appointment, she’s not there on Tues/Thurs I believe.
Modern Bride in Bedford are not the most helpful. I bought bridesmaids dresses there 19 years ago for my first wedding and they are great, things have slipped. They didn’t the gowns by the vendors listed on the website, couldn’t find prices, do not take appointments…I went twice (November and May… no better.)
In Concord, An affair to remember is good, as well as Cassies (both on Main St.)
Madelines Daughter is OK… I have personally experienced BIG problems after the sale, pre sale they are great, alterations were really problematic both for brides (weddings I’ve been in) and order issues and problems with bridemaid dresses (ordered way too big and huge charges for alterations.) Difficulty with orders too, I’d avoid them…
Sposa Atalier (Salem NH) was great to work with, Debbie and the owner (Lucia I think) both wonderful really nice service. The shop is lovely, decor is light and it’s spacious, gowns beautifully displayed too.
French’s Bridal in Beverly MA, are great, work with Roberta, VERY knowledgable, nice small boutique shop.
Bella Briadal Shoppe in Amesbury, MA also great Elysha was wonderful.
I ultimately purchased my gown in Newton Ma, I stumbled upon this little shop after going to a big place (VOWS) which has big name designer gowns for $1800-6K.
The shop where I bought is called La Sposa, I could not be happier, Lisa was great. I’m delighted. GOOD LUCK
