was doing or what I wanted, but she was a doll and kept me focused on picturing “my wedding day”. If you didn’t know, you’ll find out quickly, that dress shopping with your mother, and two sisters (via FaceTime) is exhausting!

asion. I only have wonderful things to say about my visits to the store and communications with the staff. The store itself is super cute, and the gowns are simply gorgeous. I had visited a handful of other places before Modern Trousseau but had yet to come across the dress I had been envisioning. At Modern Trousseau, I fell in love with two different dresses that matched my vision. The staff worked with me to design my absolute dream dress, combining my favorite features of each dress. The final product was more beautiful than I could have imagined. As one of my relatives said, “it was the perfect combination of lace, beading, and vintage.” While the staff had explained that minimal alterations would be needed due to the fitting upfront and the custom nature of the dress, I was truly blown away that, in fact, the dress needed almost no alterations. I will always treasure my memories of dress shopping with my mom and sister, and know that the staff at Modern Trousseau played a huge part in making the experience so special. Aside from marrying my husband, I can honestly say that my wedding dress was my favorite part of the entire day!

was mismeasured by 2 inches all over my entire body and when I received my dress IT WAS HUGE. I had to send it back to be completely remade and they tried to charge me an extra $500 to do this (and the manager of their facility in Connecticut tried to convince my mom that maybe I was lying about losing too much weight before my wedding instead of my being mismeasured!!! the nerve since I didn't lose a single pound for my wedding!). When I received the dress a second time, it still had to go through $200 of alterations because it was still way too big. In the end, I really loved my dress but was just tired of dealing with the stress of making it perfect. No bride should have to go through that.

I am not a southern bride -- I live in DC and am getting married in Indiana -- but I bought my dress through Modern Trousseau Charleston and could not be happier with the experience or with my gorgeous gown. I had come across Modern Trousseau ...
in my first round of dress-shopping and was excited to discover a flagship in Charleston when my fiance and I were there for a weekend about 8 months before our wedding. I had a great appointment in the lovely store trying on dresses and left my measurements on file. After a little more dress-shopping I knew I wanted a Modern Trousseau dress, and the special perks of ordering through a flagship (price, plus "extras" like a sketch of the dress, and my monogram stitched in blue inside the dress) made the decision of where to place my order really easy.
The logistics were a little complicated; I wanted a dress that didn't really exist yet (combination of a couple of different MT dresses), and I needed to order it over the phone, and have it sent to my parents' house rather than to where I currently live, but the Charleston store made everything go smoothly. Heather also helped me choose a veil, sight-unseen, by recommending a couple of veils to go with my dress, then putting them on mannequins and emailing me photos so I could see what they look like.
Did I mention I am obsessed w my dress? The lace is gorgeous, the fit is close to perfect (I only need very minimal alterations; they take so many measurements that the gowns fit very well on arrival), and I love wearing a semi-custom dress combining my fave parts of a couple of other beautiful MT gowns. I very highly recommend Modern Trousseau Charleston, both for the excellent friendly service and the gorgeous dresses.
