If you are looking for customized service that is tailored to your needs and desires in finding “the” dress, then Shelia’s Bridal Boutique is for you. Shelia’s years of customer service and bridal fashion is evident the minute you enter. The boutique is spacious, clean, professional and comfortable. There are chairs available for the guests you bring with you for dress shopping.
Shelia provides a very personal, attentive to detail and relaxed dress shopping experience. Her personality is warm, inviting, respectful, kind and she is very generous with her time and assistance. Unlike some bridal chain stores, Shelia takes the time to listen to what you are looking for, what you’ve tried on, what you like and what you don’t like. She is aware of the frustrations and pressures plus-size brides experience in trying to find “the” dress. During your shopping experience she doesn’t ever rush you. She gives you the time you need to really look at the dress and discuss what you like and don’t like. When it came down to the top two dresses for me and she saw that I was stuck trying to decide between them, she gave me all the time I needed. I never felt rushed, or pushed into choosing a dress or pushed into a sale.
When I asked her opinion she was honest, kind and genuine. I respect those qualities when making an extremely important decision. The Boutique experience is always present in the one-on-one time that you have with Shelia. In the private dressing room, Shelia takes the time to ensure that the crinoline and skirt are loose and free before standing before the mirror. Once you are standing on the platform before the mirror, she takes the time to fluff and prep the skirt of the dress all the way around so the dress truly looks its best while you view yourself in it. Her boutique lighting is soft and complimentary which really helps to view the true shades of white, ivory and the reflective beading or jewel work on the dress. There are many types of veils to try on with each dress and head pieces, tiaras, headbands to complement each.
Her collection of accessories are dreamy; it’s difficult not to want them all, as many of her pieces are timeless and classic. There is something here for every bride. Shelia has bobbi pins and scrunchies to help pull up your hair in a mock trial for trying on veils and head pieces. Having super thin hair, this was a huge advantage for me, when trying on veils and head pieces. This is a five star experience when it comes to bridal dress shopping and was well worth the drive and time spent to find my perfect dress.
