More Details: My wonderful husband and I had been together for four and a half years before we got engaged. He is an officer in the Marine Corps where he flies the Osprey aircraft. We got engaged December 21, 2014 and planned to hold our wedding after my graduation from graduate school in May 2016. One night in October 2015, he surprised me at school with flowers and said he was getting deployed in January of 2016 and that we either had to push the wedding back to when he returned or move it up. Needless to say, we didn’t want to wait. So, in two months we planned our wedding and had the most perfect day with beautiful weather. We were surrounded by our family and friends who were all able to make it on such short notice. They were so understanding and supportive and it made our special day that much more meaningful.

My dress was absolutely perfect. It had a beaded part around my midsection that looked like snowflakes, which went perfect with our winter wedding. The staff at New York Bride & Groom were so extremely welcoming every time I came in to see or try on my dress. When I explained to them about my husband’s upcoming deployment, they were able to rush my dress and get the alterations done in plenty of time for me to take it all the way to New Jersey for my wedding. I can’t thank them enough that I didn’t have to sacrifice my dream wedding dress for a lesser one that could be done in time for the wedding.
