Let me tell you...this place was amazing. I walked in for my appointment with my sister and mom and the owner greeted us instantly; she was our consultant as well. She asked me what I wanted for a wedding dress and I said... "I want to be a pri...
ncess. But I have switched my style. I used to want a full ball gown, strapless with a sweetheart neckline, and have a blinged-out lace-up corset, now I don't know." She said "ok are you open to other options also" and I said yes of course.
She pulled a dress that I would have never pulled in a million years. It was lace, off white, with straps. She pulled dresses closer to my original style too, but she encouraged me to try on something I hadn't originally considered. She was right. I fell in love with the dress she picked. It was a beautiful Essense of Australia dress. Even though I loved the dress I wasn't quite ready to make my decision. The owner said to take my time and go home and think.
Instead, I went to other bridal shops and tried on more dresses. I tried on the Essense dress at another store, but it didn't look the same...because the other store only carried sample sizes to fit a bridal size 4, normal size 0-2. I am a normal size 6, bridal 10. At the time I was a bridal 14 and normal 10. This other store also up-charged the Essense dress by $500!
Illusion bridal carries sample sizes for brides who don't fit into "normal" sample sizes. The owner is friendly and informative, and they do not up-charge. I will recommend this place over and over again.
