Customer Testimonials

My experience at Margene`s was so pleasant that I decided to do a good deed for them too and post this comment here. Ladies that were helping me were very knowledgeable, polite and, what I appreciated the most, patient. I admit I am demanding when it comes to my wedding. I want everything to be my way, and I am not very flexible. A sales person at Margene`s gave me and my mom all the attention we needed, which in combination with fair prices made us very satisfied customers. Thanks Margene`s Bridal!

I have been shopping around for the dress for a while. I am the kind of person who makes sure that I get the best for my money. Margene's was, I think, the third store that I checked out. When I saw the selection, prices and the kind of customer service that I had experienced there, I did not wanna look any further! Wonderful, just wonderful customer experience! I am definitely a satisfied customer. I will come back there for all my alterations needs, and I would definitely recommend it to others as well. Oh, btw, website is also awesome!
