I am a local wedding professional and I work with many brides on a daily bases. When I got engaged I had everything from the DJ to the invitations covered. The only thing I didn't have covered and the most important was the dress. I started asking my vendors who they would choose because I wanted to give local a choice and 8 out of 10 said Simply Grand. I couldn't leave well enough alone because it was a huge decision, so I started asking my brides where they went and again most said simply grand. They were all great and very helpful and the owner personally opened her store for me and my wedding party on her day off. I should have never doubted them. My dress is wonderful and was $350.00 cheaper to boot!
