Buyer Beware. I came with a friend to purchase her wedding gown. The gown she loved was marked at 50% off and the owner quickly told us that we must have marked the tag because she doesn't mark anything below 30% off. That should have been a major red flag...but the dress looked great and it was a good price (not a steal, but decent). It was a floor sample so there were no tags. The owner wouldn't tell us the dress designer. Should've been another red flag. My friend paid for the gown and arranged to come back for alterations.

Fast forward to final pickup, the back of the gown looks ridiculous...you know, the part that everyone stares at during the whole ceremony. We had pictures of the gown we found online that showed how it should look and the owner refused to adjust the sash to fit my friend's torso. She used a basting stitch to tack up the sides of the sash and then sewed snaps all over the sash to try to keep it in place. If she just would have shortened the sash, all that rigging wouldn't have been necessary. For a professional seamstress, she cannot figure out the best way to alter a wedding gown so that it looks right? I went back with her again to try to figure out the back and try to get it fixed. Waste of time. The owner bolted during our appointment time and of course, the very sweet girls that got left to deal with us have no power to do anything. We left and took the dress to my tailor to have it fixed where I know it will be done correctly and with pride. Manu should be ashamed of the shoddy workmanship that she handed my friend and called a final product. If that is the quality of all of her work, some sewing classes would probably be beneficial.

I wish I could post photos on this review. The last thing anyone needs when planning for a wedding is for the bridal shop owner to refuse to complete proper alterations that, of course, were paid in full prior to the work being done because that is her policy. $350 for alterations should have included altering the sash to fit my friend's torso. Buyer beware.
