Read Why Brides Love Silk Social Occasion Studio

I’m sure every girl out there wants to give the shop where she buys her wedding dress “5 stars,” but I’d like to preface my 5-star rating by saying that I absolutely HATE shopping. With the added pressure of it being for a wedding dress, I put my dress shopping off as long as possible, until the fear of not finding a dress in time outweighed the stress of shopping. My first shopping experience at another store wasn’t quite a disaster, but it was close. I didn’t have enough time to browse through the dresses, and I just couldn’t find the words to properly express what I was looking for in a dress, not speaking the language of weddings and shopping. I found something that was “okay,” but it didn’t feel quite right, as we’d have to make all sorts of adjustments. I am so glad I trusted my instincts not to put down the deposit because everything about my trip to SILK was just the opposite and such a relief. First off, contrary to other bridal stores, SILK just makes sense. Wonder of wonders, the dresses are actually arranged by size and price, and all clearly marked, so you know which dresses are new, which are samples, and which are once-worn. You know exactly what you are looking at. Open, honest, and pragmatic – that’s my kind of shopping! It only took one comment to make me feel free- “You aren’t going to hurt the dress’s feelings.” Finally, I could express myself! Un-stifled by salesmanship or imagined snootiness, I could relax, and be myself, say exactly how I really felt, and get what I really wanted all along, but didn’t know how to say. And to top it all off, the prices are incredibly reasonable! Even someone on a small budget can get a high quality dress that doesn’t feel cheap or cheesy. There was a wide selection of styles, prices, and sizes. Plus, the dress you try on is the dress you take home, so no surprises. I would not hesitate to recommend this store to anyone who appreciates good sense when it comes to weddings

My experience with Silk was absolutely wonderful! At first the word “consignment” made me cringe. I was a bit put off by wearing another bride’s “used” dress. But after looking at various bridal boutiques that were way overpriced, I decided to give it a try; and I was blown away. Their gowns are stunning!! They have everything from sample, never worn gowns to slightly worn dresses that are still in excellent condition: all within a very reasonable budget. I walked in and told them the name of the designer that I loved. Immediately, she pulled out my dream gown and I completely fell in love. It had never been worn and was just what I was looking for. I also got my veil from Silk on the same day. My mom, mother-in-law, and I felt so taken care of. I’d recommend Silk to all future brides! Thank you SO much 🙂

I said “yes” to the dress at Silk! The experience I had here was everything I could have wanted when trying on bridal gowns. I had a limited budget, but wanted something of a better quality than most places in my price range could offer. Not only is Silk a consignment store, but they also get gowns straight from designers after their shows. Beverly, my consultant, pulled a dress that I would never have picked that came straight from the runway. It fit perfectly and looked better than I ever imagined! Beverly knew what would look good on me and made the experience so much fun and enjoyable. Also, they stick to your budget and don’t waste time showing you dresses you may fall in love with but can’t afford. I had a lovely, boutique experience, AND got the perfect dress for the perfect price!!
