  • This is a one of a kind shop. I knew from the energy as soon as I walked in that I'd be purchasing my dress from The Persnickety Bride. The one-on-one appointments offered a much more intimate experience than other shops I've been in. Lori was so sweet and funny as I tried on dresses; she was honest, patient, and knowledgable. As for Denise- she is highly passionate, genuine, and she truly runs a beautiful shop. She took the time to send me kind messages before my appointments, which really helped to calm my nerves. This type of quality is unmatched! I'm so grateful! (and props to Denise's daughter for helping!)

  • I came to Persnickety a couple months ago and instantly fell in love with their dresses and staff. I had so much fun trying on gowns and just spending time in the store. I knew that I would be back again to get my prefect dress. When I came back it was like we were all old friends and they knew exactly my style and what dresses I needed to try. I loved how personalized the experience felt. They really are just spectacular at what they do. I have found the perfect gown that feels like it was made for me. I am so proud to say that I am a Persnickety Bride :) I would highly recommend this shop!

    Suzanne I was so happy to see you come back to the shop with your Moms bestie "Auntie" and your girlfriends. You have such a great support system of women. It was so sweet to meet your mom via FaceTime to go over each dress with you. You looked beautiful in so many of our dresses - but YOUR dress is extremely gorgeous and so perfect for you. It's elegant and timeless and you look stunning in it! I am so happy that you joined The Persnickety Bride family. Thank you for your business and most importantly your friendship. It means the world to me and all us ladies here at The Persnickety Bride!! xoxo Denise

  • The Persnickety Bride had a great selection of dresses. I walked in not what I wanted and it was stress free. So many beautiful options to choose from and friendly staff who were so very helpful. I was planing on wearing a simple "little white dress" for my elopement and then a gown for a later reception; however, I was able to find an amazing dress that could be ready within 2 months. This was a pleasant surprise since I did not think that could happen and did not need to compromise on the style I would have chosen to get something in a short time period. To add to their great customer service, they were able to provide me the name of a trusted seamstress nearby for any alterations. Couldn't have had a more wonderful experience.

    Ashley I simply LOVE the "Whitney" dress that you purchased. I remember Lori coming to me and saying how quickly you were getting married (In Central Park - so romantic) and then the family event I think it was like a week or two later. I was so so so happy to find that dress in a size 4 in the warehouse just waiting for you!!! I was like what a gift. We got it in a few days and off you went to our seamstress. Your wedding pictures were so beautiful and I remember the day of your reception you came in with your husband to grab a hairpiece. Honestly - for someone who was able to do it "on the fly" - you ended up with everything you could have wanted and we couldn't have been happier to help you out. I can't say that it happens all the time - but it did happen for you! Thank you so much for becoming A Persnickety Bride and congrats on the start of your new family!! xoxo Denise

  • Denise and her staff run a fabulous little boutique dress shop in Connecticut. The experience was everything I could have hoped for. She had a beautiful selection of dresses and did a great job helping me figure out exactly what I was looking for. Once I said 'Yes,' she had champagne waiting and a little gift bag as well. I would highly recommend Persnickety Bride if you're looking for a intimate and individualistic shopping experience!

    Dear Michelle, Thank you so much for your lovely testimonial!!! I am so happy you, your mom and your sister drove from Cornwall on Hudson, NY to come to the shop. I so enjoyed our time together and was thrilled that you found your beautiful Lola dress with US!!! So supper exciting! It is terrific that you were able to come during the week as it is so great to give a more personal experience to my brides. Thanks again for becoming a Persnickety Bride! I can't wait to see you and "the girls" again soon! If you need anything else please let me know xoxo Denise

  • I found The Persnickety Bride after a google search of bridal stores in the area. I can't say enough good things about the store, my experience and especially Denise & her daughter Erin! I came with my mom, one sister & bridesmaid. Denise listened to what I wanted, helped me select several gowns to try on and offered her advice on each one. She helped me find my dress within my budget and I love it! We had a morning appointment and had total privacy. She truly made me feel like it was MY time to shine (Which is was) & she made my experience completely stress free, which is so important since everything wedding is typically stressful. I highly recommend The Persnickety Bride to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, cost effective bridal gown. Thank you Denise & Erin!!

    Riley - I had the best time with you, mom and bridesmaid. I loved the gown you selected it is so perfect for the plan you have for your celebration! I can't wait to see how the rest of your planning unfolds - thank you for such a lovely review. Like I tell my brides all the time - no stress. Just relax and you will feel it happen! xoxo Denise

  • The Persnickety Bride gave me an experience I will never forget. Denise and the rest of them team were so personable and focused on me from the moment I walked into the shop. She made sure to listen to what I wanted and what I was looking for in a dress, and I found the one that very same day! I will be forever greatful and I hope all brides choose to become a Persnickety Bride!

    Diana you looked radiant in your dress and the matching veil. The joy that you had with that wedding dress really touched me. It is one of our favorite dresses here at The Persnickety Bride and we are so proud to handle the Justin Alexander Signature line of wedding dresses. They are truly spectacular works of art, from the crepes, to the hand beaded dresses they are truly masterpieces. I get very excited when a bride purchase one as the quality is incredible and the look amazing. I'm also so grateful to Marianne my past bride for bringing you and your mother in the shop. We love our intimate setting and are so happy you enjoyed the way we work with our brides to make it a very special experience. Thank you for your lovely review and more importantly = thank you for becoming A Persnickety Bride xoxo Denise

  • Denise (the owner) was FANTASTIC, and helped guide me to find the dress of my dreams! I had tried dresses on at other boutiques, but when I came to The Persnickety Bride was impressed by the variety of inventory, the sincere helpfulness of the staff, and the stylist's ability to assess what I wanted/felt comfortable in rather than pushing me in a certain direction. At no point did I feel like I was being rushed or pressured, which has happened at other bridal shops. Would recommend 1000x over

    Caitlin I so enjoyed my time with you and your mom. I was so happy that we were able to find the dress of your dreams. I'm am always so happy when I get to explore choices with brides that have an open mind to try different dresses on and styles. You looked great in everything you tried on - but there was that special something extra with your wedding dress that was just undeniable. I am so happy she was your choice and I can't wait to see her come in and see how beautiful you are going to look in her. SO excited!!! You and Mom are welcome to stop in any time at all in between and if you need help with custom stationery, favors you name it I am here for you!!! xoxo Denise

  • Before my appointment at The Persnickety Bride, I had tried on so many beautiful dresses, but couldn't articulate what was missing. When I came in, Denise had me describe the vision for my wedding and within 15 minutes I was in my dream dress, speechless. She turned what had been a stressful, uncertain process into an unforgettable experience that I will cherish forever. I am honored to be a Persnickety Bride, thank you Denise and team!

    My Dear Carolyn - you looked so beautiful today in your wedding gown. the straps came out awesome! Thank you for your lovely testimonial. I love to have brides visualize in words what their plans are for their wedding. Understanding their style and what really feels right and beautiful for each individual young lady is so important in finding the perfect wedding gown. If you need anything else, please do not hesitate to contact us. xoxo Denise

  • There are not enough words to describe how amazing of an experience I had at The Persnickety Bride with Denise and her staff is (but I will try!) I had been highly recommended by a friend to put Persnickety on my list during my search process. I had planned a long day with multiple gown appointments, and Persnickety was the last stop of the day. From the first moment my family and I met Denise, we knew it was going to be memorable! Denise was personable, kind, thoughtful, and helpful from the beginning. I was indecisive on my first visit, but Denise encouraged me to get more information and options on the designer I liked by attending a truck show. At the trunk show, Denise and Anna were outstanding and found me my gown! Their personalized, patient, and thoughtful approach was exactly what I needed to be able to find my dream gown! I cannot recommend Persnickety Bridal, Denise, and her team enough. Any and all brides would benefit from Denise’s experience, friendship, and support. TH... Read more

    Dear Lindsey - You know I really try to hone in and listen to what my brides need and want - so does Lori. It is only by listening and looking at body types and hearing about your style and the styles of the wedding you are envisioning that helps us find the gown that will work for you. I hate when my girls get disappointed because I know through our vast selection there will be that "ONE" - it happens - you just need to talk it through - in your case it came during the trunk show and my god what a wedding gown you ended up with - a stunning beauty of a dress - that now of course we have in the shop. I can not wait to see you on your wedding day. So classic and beautiful. Thank you for your lovely review - it means the world to us here and I certainly can speak from Anna at Justin Alexander - we try so hard to make the experience awesome. Thank you for becoming A Persnickety Bride xoxo Denise

  • I got my wedding dress at The Persnickety Bride and it was the best experience! Denise, Lori, and all of the staff were so friendly and welcoming. I worked with Lori who was so kind, understanding, and took the time to help me find my dream dress. I was working with a shorter time frame since I went shopping 6 months before my wedding date. I was worried that I wouldn’t have time to order a gown but Lori made sure I got the perfect dress, and would have it in time! This bridal shop has such a beautiful and unique collection. I’m so glad I’m a Persnickety Bride! Thank you Denise and Lori!

    Rachel you looked absolutely gorgeous in your wedding dress. It is so romantic - you are going to rock it. We had such a joyous time with you and Lori and I couldn't be happier that you are a Persnickety Bride!!! xoxo Denise

  • I'm currently in the process of working with Denise from The Persnickety Bride but am having such a wonderful engagement that I wanted to write a review now. Right when I stepped in the shop with my mother and future MIL, I felt like family. Denise was so warm and welcoming along with her right hand-gal, Lori, who helped me in the dressing room and made me feel uber comfortable with what dresses fit me best. She listened to my concerns and helped accommodate with other gowns. Because it was such a great experience, I think my happiness encouraged me to choose a dress that I later had second thoughts. Needless to say, I was a mess and felt terrible. Long story short, my moms and I explained the situation and Denise was nothing short of understanding and empathetic to the situation. She invited me to come back, try on more styles and wouldn't you know it - I found THE dress! Even when I was thinking of making certain adjustments, she was on the phone with the designer's repres... Read more

  • From the time I made an inquiry about making an appointment, to when I walked out having purchased my dream dress, Persnickety Brides was AMAZING! After scheduling my appointment (all online, which was awesome!) I received a dress survey page where I was able to pick dresses that fit my perspective style. The day prior, I was sent a reminder email which also asked who I was bringing so they would be greeted by name (which they were!) I then was sent a personal text from Denise the day of my appointment. The multiple contacts really made me feel at ease. Parking is fantastic, and my elderly grandmother had no issues getting around the salon with her walker. Denise made everything so easy! (Also, a big shout out to her daughter and her daughter’s friend! They were organizing the dresses and helping us stay on track, thanks ladies!) The dresses were already waiting for me, and I found my dream dress in no time! I was slightly nervous that there wasn’t going to be enough inventory …b... Read more

  • WOW WOW WOW I don’t know where to start on a review for Denise & her team. I shopped for my gown all over CT, NY and even a handful of stores in Texas. I must have been to at least 20 shops and tried on hundreds of wedding dresses. I’m very indecisive and was HATING the wedding dress shopping process… until I walked into Persnickety Bride! The shop is a beautiful boutique with the most gorgeous dresses (which her and her team keep very well maintained) from a variety of designers all with different styles. Denise and her team are incredible – they are patient and helpful throughout the whole process and don’t try to pressure you (like many other shops I went into). They have great ideas on how to tweak any dress and make it EXACTLY what you are looking for – and not to mention FUN! My mom, my sister and I had so much fun when we were at Persnickety! Because we had so much fun finding a dress at Persnickety, we also did our stationary – the invitations went out a... Read more

    Kelly my Kelly - thank you so much for your beautiful review. I feel like we are family now. I totally adore you and your mom - we have such a good time together. Thank you thank you for becoming A Persnickety Bride. I loved every minute I spent with you guys. Plus I thought picking paper out was super easy. Definitely a little easier than the dress - but we made it through that process as well! I am sure I will see you again when your veil comes in!! xoxo Denise

The owner took the time to try to get to know me, and what I wanted to reflect the day of my wedding day, and every dress was better than the next, with so many unique options, so I felt confident when I made my purchase. I recommend The Persnickity Bride to anyone ready to have a fun time shopping for their special day!
