So..I’m basically a professional bridesmaid lol. I was in 8 weddings just last year. I’ve been to so many bridal shops here in San Antonio as well as Austin, Dallas and Abilene. Well, gals, it’s finally my turn to be the bride! I started shopping this weekend and Bridal Connection was where I started my hunt. I came in wanting to look but not try on. I had gone through the dress shopping process with other brides but never once ever imagined looking for myself or from the perspective of the bride. It was a little scary, overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. Thankfully I had amazing help from Angelita to set me free of all anxiety. My MOH convinced me to go ahead and try a few dresses I liked. Angelita was AMAZING! She listened to every single detail or what I liked or disliked about pretty much every gown in the store! When she found out that I was at the very beginning stages of dress shopping, SHE GAVE ME A FREE BRIDAL MAGAZINE!! I didn’t have one before and it seriously melted my heart. What amazing customer service! In fact, that was above and beyond customer service. I would call it selflessness not service! Did I mention I tried on 6 different dresses after my bridesmaid that drove in from Austin showed up an hour later than our appointment was supposed to start because she got stuck in traffic? The time passed so quickly we actually didn’t finish until an hour after close!! Angelita stayed late just for me to finish up naturally because none of us realized what time it was at that point. I will be back for sure and look forward to bringing my mom next time:) Not only were they amazing to the bride, but they treated my maid of honor and bridesmaid like princesses as well. From personal experience, shops like these usually could care less about the bridesmaids. Bridesmaids are the brides support system so it was amazing to see a company that understands that and doesn’t tear that support down!! If I end up not finding “the” dress here at the very least I will be getting my bridesmaid dresses here! But I already have a huge contender for my big day after just one day of shopping here.
