I wish I could give 10/5 stars, they were such a dream to work with! Every single step of the way, Sage had my back. I tried on 12 dresses, and ended up picking dress 11 with 12’s beading. Never did I dream I’d make a dress custom, but the pric...
es were actually affordable, and they made the process so seamless!
My dress actually shipped and delivered late, and the beading was shipped separate, and Sage did a great job keeping me informed of when it would arrive.
Sage is also the BEST hype girl. She could tell on my face if I loved or hated a dress, and was not offended if I didn’t love something she pulled. She understands how important a wedding dress is, and made me feel so comfortable and confident! I can’t recommend this bridal shop enough, but Sage is the person who made all my dress dreams come true!

Ashlee & Sage were able to help me find the perfect dress & both of them will be standing by my side when I say I do! And on top of that, I am marrying Sage’s brother. I truly can’t imagining saying yes to the dress any other way. Modern Dress has a wide variety & selection of dresses. I tried on so many different styles. Sage & Ashlee were great at finding dresses that complemented me well AND met my mom and grandma’s expectations. Whether or not you say yes at Modern Dress, I guarantee your experience will be top notch and a day to remember.

HIGHLY recommend! Brides you will love love love this bridal boutique. I live in the Des Moines area and went to 3 popular places here and in Ames before finding Modern Dress. I am so happy I made the drive up there!
One of my favorite things...
about them is they have unique designers. Many of the boutiques I went to all had the same people... some dress variety within that designer... but all very much the same, whereas Modern Dress has much more of a variety. I love that they carry an Iowa designer, and although that's not who I went with, those dresses were STUNNING as well. The shopping experience was wonderful and I felt completely safe with the COVID precautions they were taking.
The dress I ended up falling in love with is made by a designer that no other bridal store carries in the entire state. I loved knowing it would be unlikely that I'd see any friends with the same dress, and I loved it so much!
If you are not in Boone- Modern Dress is SO worth the drive!

they had a really good eye on what dresses/trends women want to see! I was so happy with my own dress experience, that we went back and got the bridesmaid dresses and tuxes as well. The bridesmaid dresses were absolutely beautiful, but the only negative thing I would say is that the tux sizes were very inconsistent and many had to be reordered. However, they came in on days they weren't open just to make sure we got all the tuxes fixed and handled that very professionally!

d the gown I ended up buying.
I was adamant that I needed to try on Badgley Mischka's Blake gown. They were the only store that had this gown in the midwest when I was looking for a dress. When I tried on this dress, I knew it was the one. It was stunning and so fun to wear! I loved it and was sold.
Aside from carrying amazing gowns, this salon is just adorable. It is a quaint little shop that carries brand names but has gowns that accommodate all budgets. They also have bridesmaid gowns, making it a one-stop shop.
But the best part about this shop is the staff. I worked primarily with Sage. She was so kind, patient, and knowledgable. She gave me time to facetime family and show them my gown. I did not feel pressured to purchase the gown. They were most concerned with me finding a gown I was happy with instead of pushing for a sale.
I cannot thank Modern Dress enough for carrying my gown and making my wedding gown experience one of my best/favorite wedding experiences. I felt stunning on my wedding day. I definitely didn't want to take my gown off! Thanks ladies for providing such a high-quality experience with some gorgeous gowns!

My dress was beautiful and reasonably priced. the staff was friendly and helpful. I do have a couple of issues with my experience though. They told me most of the bridesmaids dresses were $100-$200, and nearly all of my girls paid above $200, w...
hich I felt bad about for them. Also, they ordered the wrong veil for me. The one they got for me worked (not that I had a choice because I was out of time), but it wasn't what I ordered. But the worst part was that they recommended K&N Sewing for alterations, where I had a terrible experience. Overall, I still had a good experience with Modern Dress, but I just wanted to point out some things that could have gone better.

I'm so GRATEFUL for Modern Dress! I wouldn't have my dream dress without them.
My dress journey had been difficult. I purchased a dress my mom and everyone loved, which I loved that they loved, but after some soul searching knew it wasn't the ...
one. I then searched tirelessly for another dress. I was about to give up when I found a WTOO dress online I LOVED. I immediately started calling around to stores that carried the designer and no one had it. I was told I could buy it from them, but that's the best they could do. My LAST call was to Modern Dress. Ashley answered and immediately put my mind at ease. We arranged a loaner dress to be delivered to the store for me to try on. I knew I had a big decision to make when I went in for my appointment. The second I walked in the door my stress and worry melted away. I felt supported, understood, and heck we had fun! Tried on the dress and in an instant knew it was the one. The sincere and genuine response from Ashley and Ashlee made the whole experience even that much more special.

lped me try on a lot of different dress and we found a few maybes, but after she discovered my style and got to know me during the appointment she picked out the perfect dress for my style and body type. I could not be happier with the experience I had with Ashley and Modern Dress. Her entire staff was so attentive and helpful in the entire process. I couldn't recommend them more.

I wouldn't trust anyone else with my big day other than Modern Dress!

I visited Modern Dress and I found them on The Knot, they seemed as if they had a lot of options for dresses and had quite the amount of reviews. From the feedback I found online I decided to take the 3 hour drive to visit to Modern Dress. I wa...
lked into the store and it was not what I expected to see, but I did make the drive so I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. I found a few dresses that I really liked from the rack, but they did not fit right. I am borderline petite, sometimes it is hard for me to find the right fit, but I didn't think I would have this issue at a bridal store. My consultant was average and did not do a good job clamping the dress so I could see the full illusion of how the dress would fit me if it was my size. I did love the dress, but I could not get the full visual. I asked the consultant if they had one in at least a size or two smaller and she said they didn't. It was upsetting, because I knew that that could have been my dress, but I couldn't see how it really looked if it was my size.

From the time I started picking out dresses to the moment I said "yes" to the dress, my stylist was my biggest advocate. Jennifer always made sure I was comfortable and enjoying the experience. It was an emotional one, and she supported me through it all. Her and a few other employees even stayed after hours to make sure everything was squared away with my order, and they celebrated with me! Although she works with several brides everyday, Jennifer made me feel like the most important person in the world that day.
