1st I would like to say THANK YOU, thank you, thank you. I was so nervous when I thought about finding my dress. I have been watching Say Yes To The Dress for many many years and I wanted that "tingling" feeling. My appointment was on a saturday and when I got there they were... Read More waiting on me with a smile on their face. Nobody else was in the shop but me and my guest and that was a nice feeling. India was my consultant and I can't not give her enough praise. She had the 1 dress that I just knew I was going to purchase ready for me but also had 4 other dresses. I wanted to try on the 1 that I knew I was already going to purchase last so I could have that feeling of saying yes I tried on more then 1 dress. India put me in a lace dress (because i told her NO i was not wearing a lace dress), that dress was really pretty on me and I was shocked. But it wasn't the dress. Then I tried on another dress that was similar in style the dress I wanted and my guest gave it a 10, i was not feeling it though. Then I put on 2 other dresses that was also similar in style to the dress I wanted but they weren't it either. THEN I had the 2nd to last dress. Before I got 1 leg in it I said, "India, this 1 is close, its giving me a little feeling," she laughed. Then I got it on and she pulled it tight in the back and I shook my head and said INDIA this is giving me the feeling, she laughed again. Once it was on i said this is it, but what about a belt, she said i have something better then a belt, how about an embellishment. I said ok lets see, she put that bling on the front of my dress and I could have jumped for joy. I walked out to show my guest with a huge smile. They all said oh my, my mother immediately cried and got up. When I turned around and looked in the mirror I KNEW this was it. But India was not done. She "jacked me up" and the veil OH MY GOSH the veil. They had me walk in like i was walking down the aisle, my mother was crying and I had that "TINGLING" feeling. I said YES TO THE DRESS. The whole time I was there India was amazing, very nice, very knowledgable, friendly and made my experience so memorable. Thank you India and the staff you've made my experience one of the best. P.S I never tried on the dress that I "knew" I was coming there to purchase. lol

Made the experience enjoyable!

I am a plus size bride and I had a least one experience where a shop said they had plenty of gowns for me to try on and that wasn't the case. So glad I went to Keba's shop. I started looking for gowns here, and ended up buying my gown there after a second visit. I love her... Read More store, it's comfortable and she gives you her personal attention. Every dress I wanted to try on was available and it was big enough for me. I am a street 18. I emailed pics before my appt. of dresses I liked so she would have an idea. At my appt she showed me dresses on a tablet I might liked and had pulled dresses as well. Shop here!

Cherry Blossom Bridal did a phenomenal job helping me find the perfect dress. India was very helpful and patient in helping me look for a dress. I recommend this shop to any ladies with small waists, and curves. Especially if you have a size 8 waist, and a size 14 hips.

I found The One here!! It was the second place I stopped at. The first was...okay? I found one I liked there, but all the sample sizes were like a 10, which is a street size 6 or 8, and I'm a street size 18. It was hard imagining what I'd look like in the final version of a... Read More dress when my arms didn't fit into the sleeves and I couldn't pull them all the way up. Octavia at Cherry Blossom asked me what I was looking for in a dress, and I gave her the general strokes and showed her some of my Pinterest pics. She pulled I think five dresses. I put on the third one and thought, oh wow, this is good, but mentioned I couldn't really picture what it would look like with the cap sleeves and a nicer belt. Well, she went and found some, put them in place, pinned on a veil and gave me a bouquet, and it was all over! I was very impressed both by the selection and how wonderful the customer service was. I never felt awkward or pressured or bad about my body--and for me to not feel bad about my body when trying on dresses is QUITE a feat! My dress just came in today and I'm very much looking forwards to picking it up!

Awesome service and awesome experience! The staff actually listened to my ideas on what I wanted to try on which wasn’t the case at other places I had previously visited. My regular size is a 12-14, since bridal sizes tend to run smaller I had a difficult time trying on dresses...

I'm 56 years old and I'm marrying for the second time after being on my own for 16 years. I eloped the first time around so I never had a wedding or a wedding dress. I came to Cherry Blossom first because I've been dreaming my entire life of being able to wear a beautiful gown... Read More on the best day of my life; and I wanted to work with a salon that specializes in fuller figured women. Everyone at Cherry Blossom was wonderful and my consultant Octavia was awesome. She really listened to me, asked about my venue and then brought gowns that she knew would be good for my body type and the romantic yet casual wedding we have planned. I can honestly say I had that 'bridal moment' when the gown I chose brought tears to my eyes. I didn't know I could look so beautiful. When I went back to make my deposit and get measured, both India and the owner worked to make sure the measurements were accurate. They really put my mind at ease. I got a beautiful, sparkly, one-of-a-kind gown for a minimal price and expert service. I'm so happy I found Cherry Blossom through The At this stage in my life, every little detail has taken on a different level of importance and Cherry Blossom Bridal really made this a special moment for me!

I ended up with a gown that looked *nothing* like what I expected to buy, but India was great... Read More both at following my general vision of how I wanted to feel and helping me identify options I probably (definitely) wouldn't have considered on my own. And on somewhat last notice, Keba, India, and Faizah (seamstress) helped me design a beautiful modesty panel customization that made me feel so comfortable and turned out fantastically. CBB clearly cares for their clients and it is awesome. Very wide selection in so many sizes, everyone should check them out whatever your shape, budget, or vision.

I wholeheartedly loved my experience searching and finding my bridal gown at Cherry Blossom Bridal. As a plus size bride, I was worried that I would not fit anything, that the experience would be emotionally draining and that I would not feel comfortable. The whole preparation... Read More for shopping gave me anxiety. I went to Cherry Blossom Bridal with my 3 sisters who were full of energy and more excited about the process than I was. India was incredibly patient, thoughtful, listened to what I wanted and tried her best to get to know me within the first few minutes that we interacted. I was surprised when she came with so many dresses and never once did she ask me "what size I wear?" She helped me get fitted into each gown I tried on, we briefly discussed how I felt about the dress before I went out and showed my sisters and she remained attuned to how I was feeling. I walked out of Cherry Blossom Bridal overwhelmed because I fell in love with 2 dresses. When I asked to schedule another appointment to come alone, they were more than receptive. I returned back to the store and with India's assistance I tried on the two dresses that I was in love with and ultimately chose the one that I loved the best! I would recommend Cherry Blossom Bridal to all future brides if you're searching for a bridal boutique that makes you feel like you're important, that you matter and that you are beautiful and deserve to look and feel it on your special day. Thank you India :-)
