    • Wedding: July 2012

    I’m getting married in Southern New Husband, but I wanted to give a great props to my Bridal Salon in Malden, MA – Precious Memories which has been absolutley fantastic, my only complaint – very small flower girl selection (ended up at David’s Bridal for her dress) but my dress, veil, accessories, the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and the Bridesmaid or Best Man accessories all from Precious Memories – staff is FANTASTIC.
