I got my dress from DB in Green Bay, well, at least I purchased it, in NOVEMBER of LAST year. My dress came in to the store in Feb and it was the WRONG color dress, not to mention that we asked the attendant when I tried it on before ordering it if I should order extra length (I’m 5’10) and she said no it would be long enough….well it wasn’t, it was 3 inches too short when I had my 1/2 inch heel flats on! So my dress was reordered the end of Feb, longer and in the RIGHT color, and now its almost April and I just called a few days ago to learn that the dress won’t even be in the store until JUNE and my wedding is in SEPT. Glad I ordered my dress so early or I would be in BIG trouble!

Daughters gown was purchased at Christy’s Bridal in Burlington. They are small but very nice. They carry Martina Liana, Essense of Australia, and Ella.
We also had a great visit in Cedarburg at Stone Manor. I would recommend them if that is in your neck of the woods. For us, Christy’s was much closer and actually had a sample of the dress she was most hoping to try on and actually purchased.
We have done many a prom dress at Germaines in Lake Geneva and find that since they moved from the second story corner location to their last and current locations, that their service and selection are not worth the trip (which is only 20 minutes for us!)

I bought my dress at Brandi’s in New Glarus. All of the gals that helped me were great. I bought my dress from Jenny. My dress was available at a couple of different bridal stores, but I bought it from Brandi’s because of the overall experience I had. Also, I called many times to ask if certain styles were available for both bridal/bridesmaid dresses and they were more than happy to look for me. It’s a bit of a drive from Madison, but I’m happy to do it. Vera’s Bridal was ok, but the sales gal was kind of odd and not so helpful. House of Brides in Schaumburg, IL was a joke. Not a good experience. Brandi’s is great! Plus if you purchase your dress there, you get 10% off your dress if you buy it that day and 10% off the bridesmaid dresses when you purchase them whenever.

I went to several bridal shops in the Milwaukee area and loved both the Savvy Bride in Brookfield and Heim’s Bridal in Greenfield. I ended up buying my dress from Heims. They gave you the freedom to look on your own and were always right behind me if I found a dress I liked that I wanted to add to my dressing room. The prices are fantastic! If you order the dress it is 30% off, if you buy it off the rack it is 40% off. Plus they had their seamstress there who would give you a rough estimate of what the alterations would be. Overall it was a great experience.
