  • First off let me start by saying, my entire experience was the absolute BEST! Upon arriving for my initial consultation, I was pleasantly greeted by Tess and her amazing assistant with mimosas and awesome customer service. I had less than 2 months until my wedding, I was 5 weeks postpartum and my nerves were all over the place but Tess assured me that she had me covered and promised that I’d find the dress of my dreams. Once I saw all the beautiful gowns that she had, I had no doubt about finding the perfect dress. My consultation was so personal and she really listens to everything you request and want in a wedding gown. After trying on several beautiful gowns, we finally found the ONE and I couldn’t hold back tears! My experience was so magical and still to this day, I thank God for meeting Tess and going to her place of business. She’s definitely a rare gem and everyone that I know who’s getting married will get referred to this amazing business. Thanks for making my wedding... Read more

  • If you find yourself the size of the average American female (size 14 or up) as I do and want to find a unique wedding dress that is affordable, comfortable, and absolutely amazing, then this vendor is the one for you. While Mrs. Tess (the owner) does have a selection of wedding dresses for women sizes 12 and under, she caters mostly to the wider audience of females out there above a size 12. The selection of dresses is truly unique and varies from traditional, couture, vintage, etc. You would not find the same quality of dresses here than at any old David's Bridal or any other larger corporate business, much less for the price! And on top of the great selection of dresses, the customer service is absolutely outstanding. Mrs. Tess primarily handles one on one sessions with clients in the her boutique located in her home. She is very flexible with booking these appointments and is also adamant about providing appointment reminders via phone and text. From my personal interacti... Read more

  • When one of my bridesmaid sent me an email with the information for Mid-south Wedding Gown Sales & Rental, I was leery from a past experience at a major chain for just color swatches, but I sent an email. I was contacted a day or so later. I felt an immediate sense of relief from the start. I explained that I am a plus size bride and my first visit to any bridal salon for a dress. When we showed up to my "PERSONAL" appointment (yes I had the entire salon to myself), Tess greeted my bridesmaid's and me at the door and made us feel welcomed right away. I was so relieved I was not going to have to parade in front of other brides/people. We were shown up to the studio and took in the abundance of dresses and I began to feel overwhelmed. Not sure if Tess knew, but instantly she began easing my jitters. She remembered what we had discussed on the phone and began to guide us through the different rooms suggesting and helping pick out dresses to try. I really thought she was crazy, ... Read more

    Nelly you are wonderful. I think from even our first telephone contact I could tell you were dreading the entire wedding gown shopping experience. It was my pleasure to pamper you and let you enjoy the bridal moment the same as every other bride out there. I am so very, very grateful you were not afraid to give our humble boutique a chance. Thank you so much, and I look forward to seeing you very soon for your fitting and selection of accessories

  • I actually regretted trying on a wedding dress! The thought of me trying on a wedding dress for my big day was like a nightmare! Until I went to an Open House and met Tess at Midsouth Ladies Formal, she was Amazing! She made me feel like a Princess, that nothing else mattered! She brought me back to this was a day every little girl dreams of! And I thank her for the encouraging words, she brought the best out of me! I found different styles of gowns I never thought I would like! Thanks Tess I truly appreciate you for helping me find one of the most Important dresses of my Life.

  • If you are looking for uniqueness without spending a lot of money, MidSouth Ladies Formals is the place to go. The owner is the sweetest, most professional person I've met since I started looking for dresses. From start to finish, she was amazing. This place is very relaxing and holds more dresses than you would have time to see. MidSouth Ladies, you are awesome......BRAVO!!! Love you guys.

    Wendy, the only thing i hated about you getting married, is that I wouldnt be able to see you quite so much. I enjoyed all our conversations, laughter and tears.

  • Tess is wonderful! She has been so patient with me because I've changed ny mind a couple times! But she has been excellent. I referred one of my coworkers to her and she loved her also! The prices prices be better but the service is what I love. The fact she waits on one bride at a time is just wonderful and I never feel rushed like you do at a bridal store or something. Tess is AMAZING!

  • Tess is amazing!! This is the best vendor I have had yet. Her rentals are affordable, beautiful, and awe inspiring. Tess knows what she is doing, even when you don't! I came in thinking no lace and no beading... But walked away with a gorgeous gown that looks awesome on me.
