  • I honestly cannot say enough good things about The Persnickety Bride. I honestly loved this store and Denise (the owner) THAT MUCH. I had a strong feeling I'd find the right dress there the moment I walked in the door. I'd already been to a couple of bridal stores, but nothing fully "clicked" for me before Persnickety. Plenty of dresses had looked good and other owners were also nice, but no owner compares to Denise. Her store is beautiful and filled with incredible quality gowns, but it really was the kind of service she gives that I've never gotten anywhere else (bridal or otherwise). She set me up with an online lookbook before my appointment so I could identify dresses I like (however many or few you want!) and then she had those ready for me when I arrived. She took the time to have a quick zoom pre-meeting with me so we could talk about my wedding and she could really understand me, my style, and my wedding. She clearly cares, and that's what makes her so effective at helping ... Read more

    Claire - You and your mom were such a joy to work with today. I love how beautiful you look in your dress. It is stunning on you and of course will look more stunning when you walk down the aisle! I'm excited we can get it in before you move to Texas. Thank you for your incredible review. It really brought tears to my eyes. I can't express how much I appreciate the kind words of my clients. It pushes me forward to continue my craft in my own way and style that makes a difference in the lives of my brides and their families.

  • 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!)

    Erica you looked stunning in your dress. I am so happy with the fit and how joyous you look in it. If you need anything you know how to reach us. Thank you for your lovely review. It means so much to me, Lori and the rest of our staff. xoxo Denise

  • The Persnickety Bride is hands down THE place to go if you want an incredibly dress shopping experience and a gorgeous dress. I can't say enough wonderful things about Denise and The Persnickety Bride! The store is filled with gorgeous, high quality gowns. Every dress in the store is absolutely beautiful. I ended up purchasing the first dress I put on! The minute I stepped into it, I burst into tears. It was so beautiful and Denise nailed my personal style. The dress is everything I dreamed it would be and more! Denise makes wedding dress shopping easy, personalized, and fun! She is so welcoming and an absolute blast. The level of customer service and care she shows for each bride is unmatched. I am so thrilled to be a Persnickety Bride! I can't imagine a better dress shopping experience. I am still over the moon! Thank you, Denise!

    Dear Megan, This has to be one of the most endearing testimonials. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have such a passion for what I do - and so much of this is driven by my brides. To be able just to learn about you, your fiance Eric, your plans for your wedding day. I was thrilled to have pulled the first dress that you fell in love with as your own. I always put brides into more dresses just to be absolutely sure - but when I got word that this was your dress and we had the second appointment set up - I was so happy for you. Congratulations - you looked absolutely gorgeous in your dress! Can't wait to work on the rest of your wedding planning with you.

  • 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

  • We just put our save the dates in the mail last night and cannot help but feel so grateful to the Persnickety Bride. I did not think it would be possible to actively plan my wedding during a quarantine but Denise and Emily helped it go off without a hitch by using zoom meetings and email. I am a very hands on person but it was easy to put my trust in Denise and Emily; their expertise and advice with all things bridal is so comforting. You also cannot beat that personal touch when it comes to doing your stationary via the Persnickety Bride vs DIY alternatives. There were many things I would have never even thought about that Denise brought to my attention. This process was not only easy but so much fun! I cannot recommend the Persnickety Bride enough, they are fabulous!

    Awwwww Kelsey thank you for such a lovely review. You just made Emily and my day!! We totally love our brides, grooms and families and I am proud to say we are dedicated to creating a positive and happy experience for everyone. These are very trying times - but I am very fortunate to have great staff and wonderful clients. I am so happy that you found our work diligence and "persnickety-ness" to be fun and helpful. We LOVE doing Zoom appointments for paper and think it is a great way to connect with our couples and really give a great run down of product. We are sure to pick awesome paper for you as we know what we provide. There is a lot of trust in the process and we are so happy we provide that piece of mind!!! Thanks again and you know we are here for you for the rest of you planning xoxo much love - Denise, Emily, Lori and Aeryn

  • 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.

    responded with the following comments.

    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

  • I am so happy when a specific dress led me to The Persnickety Bride. I was feeling pretty down about dress searching during a pandemic but I had so much fun with my appointment with Denise that I pretty much forgot I was wearing a mask. Having the zoom call before hand was such a great idea! The store is so pretty and Denise was so awesome and helpful! I felt so at home every time I came to the store which really helped me be able to come to a decision. I so highly recommend going here for your dress!

    Totally love my Ashlie girl! She and i had the best Zoom chat to start off with that i had a good sense of what she was looking for. i do love my Actress brides (i have so far had three of them) and each of them bring out the best in me. They have all had great drama vibes -like they are talented fun loving and just want something that is so them!!! Ashlie was trying to keep to her budget (which was a decent one i may add) but i didn't want her to go over budget to be happy. Well she found one of our beautiful Justin Alexander Signature dress that was ridiculously beautiful on her and gave her the grandeur, romance and spectacular look that she wanted to achieve. - Best off she bought it right off the rack! She got a super price on this beauty and with some added touches of her own design - I can't wait to see the wedding pictures - i am so so excited!!! Ashlie - thank you for becoming A persnickety Bride - you are awesome and i am so glad you found us!!! xoxo Denise

  • I absolutely loved working with Denise and her team. She helped me find my perfect dress. I went in about 3 times before I truly found the one and only dress. She’s even helping me customize a jacket to go with it. She has excellent quality gowns and vendors and is always looking out for your best interest.

    Marta you and your mom are so much fun to be around. You look so gorgeous in your Justin Alexander dress. I loved seeing the picture you sent after the dress got sent to your moms house (darn covid)!!! I now can’t wait to see what the jacket is going to look like - I know that Irene will do an awesome job!! Thank you so much for becoming a Persnickety Bride it means a lot to me and to my entire staff!!

  • Denise and Emily were incredibly easy to work with and VERY responsive. I used them for my wedding invitation suite, but since we were all in quarantine due to Covid, I wasn't able to visit in person which made me nervous, but they answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns. We had our initial Zoom call in which I was able to let them know my thoughts and they were able to take it from there! Every step of the way, there was ample communication and I never felt like I couldn't ask a question or address a concern. I highly recommend!!

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.
