"Mara gave me hope on finding my wedding dress. I have gone to one bridal store before them and felt very discouraged when I didn’t find my dress. I struggled with finding a dress my size. At Mara, I picked about 5 dresses on my own that I “envisioned I would get married in” They all looked fine but I wasn’t in love. They didn’t fit on my hips. I felt very discouraged. The stylist who helped me asked if she could pick a few dresses for me. I agreed, she brought them back and I thought to myself, these dresses aren’t for me but I would still try them on. To my surprise, every dress this young lady chose for me I loved. I remember thinking “This is too simple for me” when I saw my “yes” dress. I put it on and fell absolutely in love. The ladies there definitely know what they’re doing, they know what looks good, they know what will fit you and they will sit there and be patient with you. I spent 4 hours at Mara and it felt like 20 minutes. I am so pleased with my experience at Mara, they are great at what they do and I highly recommend finding your perfect dress here. So many different styles & sizes. To special order, my wedding dress only takes 6 weeks. The service is amazing. 10/10 service, they go above and beyond!" Bride-to-be, Edina
