"I planned my engagement turned 'surprise wedding' on a very short timeline. With less than three months to find and create my perfect dress, I became nervous that I wouldn't find something in time (other bridal stores refused the quick turnaround). From my first appointment, I was immediately settled by the calm, naturally lit environment of the Mariana boutique and was impressed with the condition the dresses were in, attentiveness of the staff and personalised feel.
I was cared for by Jessy, who met me with a smile and positive confidence. She understood my requests and the vision I had right away and assured me we would find the perfect look and fit for my occasion.. and she was right!
I appreciated her honesty and genuine opinions and was stoked to learn all dress prices quoted included all pattern- making, manufacture, design and alterations -all occurring IN-HOUSE!; no unethical practices here!). The transparency in cost from the outset was appreciated (no 'added alterations costs).
There were several trials to ensure I was 100% happy and my dress fit me perfectly. I felt like a rock star'
