I said YES to my wedding dress at Rashawn Rose this past weekend!
I flew in from Denver to look for a dress with my mother for my wedding in October taking place in Naples, FL. I learned about Rashawn Rose by searching for authorized retailer...
s on the Morilee website as I had my eye on a certain style number of dress I was dying to try in person. They were the closest authorized retailer to the Naples area. I learned they unfortunately did not have that specific style # available in store but had a very similar gown in stock, also Morilee, and provided me with the style # so I could get a look online to see if it would be something I'd be interested in trying which was extremely helpful! I booked my appointment, and flew down to Florida to start my search.
I let the store know I was going to be about 15 minutes late for my 2pm appointment as my plane landed a little closer to 1:45 and my parents hadn't made it to the airport on time due to traffic, and they were very understanding! Shaunette helped me, and she was like a best friend I hadn't seen in a few years but caught right back up with like we hadn't missed a day. I didn't have many long sleeve ballgown options in store to try besides the one Morilee I came to see, but we managed to find a few other silhouettes to try just to get an idea of some other options in the case the long sleeve Morilee didn't work out. Shaunette was very conscious of my budget and style I was looking for, never pushing me towards something I couldn't afford or wasn't interested in.
I tried on the Morilee and instantly fell in love, but tried on a few other dresses just to be sure, which only cemented my belief that the first long sleeve ballgown had to be the one. I had another dress on my mind that I had an appointment to see a few days later, so I let Shaunette know. She let me know she just wanted me to find THE dress, regardless of where I found it.
I called Shaunette the day before I was flying out to let her know I still had the dress on my mind and I asked her send me the video she took of me walking in the dress so I could compare this to the other one I was deciding between. She didn't get a chance to send me the video until the next morning, the day I was flying out, but just watching it once gave me all of the answers I needed. I called her up the day I was flying out and she was able to book me a same day appointment to try the dress on one last time and make sure it was the one. I made it in, tried it on again, and decided it was the one. Shaunette was super accommodating not only towards me, but both of my parents that came with me, and on our second trip where I purchased the dress, she even allowed my dad to bring in our elderly family dog (in a stroller) so he didn't have to sit out in the car with her while we finalized all of the dress business. After the dress was purchased, I was sent to a seamstress to get fitted, all in a days notice. I couldn't have asked for better service!!!!!!
Out of all of my experiences searching for a dress, Rashawn Rose had the best service and overall experience. I will always remember Shaunette's help in finding me the perfect dress. And a funny little side note we didn't notice until after the purchase, my engagement ring's center stone is moonstone, and the belt that came with the dress has moonstones on it. MEANT TO BE!!!! THANK YOU AGAIN SHAUNETTE & FAMILY, I COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE!!! :) <33
