The dress is in! (but not pictured here, I want to keep some mystery to this thing) I have to say that I had the best experience at Nicole Miller. Some of my best girls got their wedding dresses there, so I knew when it was my time I was going to at least check out the website. I found a ton of things I loved, one especially.
I wasn't really interested in spending three hours trying on a billion dresses in a giant bridal store. My appointment at Nicole Miller was private, I was the only one trying on dresses. They have a varied selection that has something for everyone, but doesn't overwhelm.
They offered us champagne (we opted for water, however, since it was 10 a.m. and we had to drive to Long Beach after...ok, probably more B than A) and took time to answer all my questions.
Annie in the Los Angeles store is Fabulous beyond words. The dress came in quickly and they recommended local places for alterations. And the prices are fantastic compared to how outrageous these things can be.
A+++ for Nicole Miller, I couldn't be happier.
