Everything Mari said she would do she did... she said "you should be and feel your most beautiful on your wedding day" and she made it happen! I have always loved girly things, but I am more of a plain Jane... somehow Mari worked her magic and transformed my everyday look into an amazing bride that stepped out of the pages of Vogue (my friends comments, not mine). I don't think anyone believed it was really me and were so happy to see my transformation. I still looked like me, but my very best version and it was money well spent (eventhough we were on a budget, it was SO important & worth every penny). I cannot tell you how many compliments I received and my new husband, his parents, my parents and even my little brother could not be prouder of me! Many, many thanks Mari for making my dreams come true, you are an angel.

I used MCD for my wedding in April to do hair and makeup for myself, my mom and my sister. MCD is VERY reasonably priced compared to others I contacted and had a ton of positive reviews online so I knew I would be in good hands.
I met Mari at her studio and brought her pictures of how I thought I wanted my hair. Mari offered to try another hairstyle if I wasn’t 100% in love with it but told her it was fine and we moved onto the makeup. She listened when I said I normally don’t wear a lot of makeup, and I ended up looking like me, just a little more dolled up. The trial was a lot of fun and I felt like I was hanging out with a friend. A few days later, I looked at pictures from my trial and decided I wanted my hair a little differently. Mari was quick to suggest I come in for another trial at no charge. At my second hair trial, I knew that the hair style was the one I’d be walking down the aisle with. Mari also set me up to get my hair glazed and cut at a local salon the week before the wedding, so I got to see her for a third time. Leading up to the wedding, I felt like I had seen Mari once every few weeks, and a part of me is said that I won’t be seeing her anymore...but I’m glad we’ll be able to keep in touch on Facebook!
The morning of the wedding, Mari and Rita arrived at the venue before me, my mom and sister arrived. It was the first time I had met Rita but she was very nice. Although there were only 3 of us getting ready, Mari and Rita kept us on pace so that we finished on time. I didn’t have to stress about timing and I was able to relax and enjoy the getting ready process (despite it starting at 7:30 am!) We finished in plenty of time for me to get dressed and then have all our photos done before the ceremony. I felt so beautiful that day, and my mom and sister looked beautiful as well. As a bride who planned the majority of our wedding on my own, it was important that I choose reliable, trustworthy vendors. I highly recommend My Cinderella’s Dream!

I cannot say enough about Mari and Rita from My Cinderella's Dream. As you can see from my wedding date, I got married right after Hurricane Sandy hit the NJ/NY area. Mari and Rita were in touch with me all week and were so reassuring. Instead of getting ready at my parents house where I grew up, we were relocated to a hotel because my town had no power. I was disappointed, but Mari and Rita were so accomodating and were there for us. My bridesmaids, aunt, mom, and myself looked beautiful!!!! We all could not have been happier! Mari and Rita, thank you for helping us all look our best and feel our best, especially after such a tough week. Potential Brides: These ladies are talented, kind, and accomodating. I'd recommend them to anyone getting married!!!

I got married this past October and let me tell you I absolutely LOVED working with Mari & Rita.
Mari is a Doll the second you meet her you feel like you have known her for years! She took her time with my trail to ensure I felt happy and comfortable day of.
On my wedding day it felt like an old friend was coming to help me get ready!
She did a wonderful job and the proof are in the pictures :)

She did my hair and all of my bridesmaids.

Rita and Mari are simply AMAZING. They made me look even more beautiful on my wedding day. They had a tough task of servicing eight bridesmaids, two mothers, and me! They were professional and responsive. While I was nervous that we would not be able to complete all of our services in such a short period of time, Mari and Rita more than exceeded my expectations. They made us all look great and with time to spare! We were all thrilled with how we looked in the end. They are wonderful!
