When my mom passed away I inherited her wedding dress and had know idea what to do with it until my daughter got engaged and I knew I wanted to do something special for her but what My mom was my daughter’s second mom growing up due to I was a single mom raising 2 kids and living with my parents and my mom had a special relationship with my 2 children.
After speaking with family and friends they all suggested that maybe I take my mom’s wedding dress and make a robe for my daughter to wear while she got dressed at her wedding. I googled and your company came up and the reviews were great so I contacted you and right from day one you guys were awesome . My daughter’s robe came out amazing and better than I even imagined . The detail was just so simple but elegant which just what i explained I wanted . My daughter loved it and the bridesmaids were all crying when she put it on. They all knew my mom and knew how special this was to my daughter.
About a year later you guys contacted me again asking if i wanted to anything else with the left over material from the dress. At first I could not think of anything until I saw on your website that I could make ornaments out of the material and I knew that was what i wanted to do and why not order one for my daughter, myself and my brother. Let me tell you the detail on this ornament was amazing and now I have a part of my mom with me for the holidays.
I can not thank all of you for everything . I will recommend you guys in the future.
It was an excellent experience from start to finish! Natalie was so warm and professional during our consultation phone call. By the end of the call she felt like a family friend. The angels will be given to my beautiful late mothers six granddaughters and my dad this Christmas. I can’t wait!
From the first time I contacted the company they've been so helpful. The angels are from my weeding dress. The angels are larger than I expected. They are a perfect memory for my dress and my daughter's wedding.
