Thanks for the heads up!

For others in Minnesota, I had a pretty bad time at The Wedding Shoppe on Grand Avenue in St. Paul.  I think it’s a hit or miss though since my sister-in-law had a great experience there.  I’m in Rochester though, and I have had a wonderful experience so far with Mestad’s. 

We should have our own little BBB on this site!  🙂

Hey MN gals!  Nice to find some people that aren’t in NY and CA here. 😉 I had a great experience at The Wedding Shoppe and ordered my dress there last Thursday.  I agree with the mixed reviews though–I have another friend that loved it and got her dress there and yet another that had a bad experience.  Not sure what the deal is.  I wish they allowed pictures–I thought their reason was bs.  That was the only negative about them IMO.

I did venture down to Rochester to visit Mestad’s too though because I wanted to check out what they had from Pronovias.  I’d say the experiences were similar–they both had a staff person totally dedicated to me.  It felt like the experience I should have had at every bridal shop. 🙂 I haven’t had to work on bridesmaids yet though, so we’ll see. Just an FYI for other plus size women out there–I had a very frustrating time at "normal" bridal shops.  The Wedding Shoppe had tons of dresses because they have a women’s section (!) but I also want to plug a shop that opened recently called Rubenesque Bridal (website: http://www.rubenesquebridalgowns.com/).  They work by appointment only, one client at a time.  They have limited dresses but wow, at least I could try them ALL on! 🙂
