Cassidy and Maya (I think that's how you spell her name) were amazing! They were so sweet and listened to what I wanted and even threw some curveballs just to make sure I knew what I was looking for. They were supportive when the dress I thought was my "dream" dress did not work out and got me to have that smile on my face again. The dress that I said yes to is so much better than that dream dress. It made me look slimmer than the dream dress and the color was perfection for my autumn colors of my wedding theme. My bridal party, mom and I had so much fun and lot of good and happy tears.

Gigi was the best! She made my girl gang and I super comfortable, listened to our ideas, and even got me out of my comfort zone when it came to trying new dresses outside of my idea!

GiGi went above and beyond my expectations of finding a wedding dress. This was my first and only dress try on session. GiGi made me feel so comfortable, listened to how I felt, and pep talked me through finding something for ME. I did not expect to leave with a dress that day, but I did! I was insecure about finding a dress since I’m a pretty curvy girl, but GiGi found such great dresses it was hard to choose! Celebrations of the Heart is such a cute place, down to the little detail of having a letter board with my name and wedding date on it in my little bridal area. So sweet and thoughtful!

As someone who has dreamed about her wedding dress shopping experience since I was able to watch Say Yes to the Dress on TLC, I have thought a lot about what my experience would be like. I can confidently say Melanie made all of my dreams come true and then some! She talked me through my likes and dislikes, even when I wasn’t sure what I liked or disliked! She was so patient and helped me create the dress I’ve always pictured myself wearing on my wedding day! Thank you all so much!!

Andi was amazing. I was feeling a little self conscious and she was amazing. She made me feel so relaxed and like I had another friend there. The whole experience went so smoothly and I felt like a true bride. I would recommend to anyone.

Melanie provides the best customer experience! From checking in prior to your appointment, pre selecting gowns before you arrive, sticking to your budget, and making your all around experience amazing! I can’t say enough good things!

I went in to just try on dresses and get a feel for what kind of style I would like. The girl who helped me was so kind and really took the time to get to know me. Much to my surprise, I ended up finding a dress that I absolutely loved that day! I am thrilled with my experience at Celebrations of the Heart and so happy to support a local business.

Celebrations of the Heart goes above and beyond to find your perfect dress! My stylist Gigi was friendly, informational, and a vital part of the experience. I did not have a good idea of the dress I wanted, and unlike some people, I never dreamed of my wedding dress. I also did not get excited to go dress shopping until after Gigi FaceTimed me and showed me some of the dresses she picked out. For having very little information to go off of except a bunch of “these are cute” pictures, Gigi hit the mark. I ended up saying yes to this beautiful Bohemian style dress and I cannot wait for the wedding! Such a great experience, and I cannot thank them enough! :)

Melanie was so wonderful to work with. She had all of the dresses I sent prior to my appointment pulled and ready for me to try on! I had the best experience with Melanie from the start!! I will definitely be recommending Celebrations of the Heart to anyone looking for a wedding dress.

I thought that I knew what I desired when it came to my wedding dress. I really appreciated the patience that was given towards me when I realized that my desires had changed! It takes a certain kind of compassion, patience, and sense of style to pinpoint where a bride’s heart is being led. Thank you for making my morning less stressful and for all of your attention to details! I said YES at my first appointment and cannot wait for the opportunity to share photos of our wedding day with Celebrations of the Heart! Keep rocking it!

I was incredibly nervous about dress shopping, but the consultation before and the communication leading up to my appointment was great. My mom and I were very comfortable and the women working there helped make our day together so special. I had an appointment booked at a KC shop for a while and ended up canceling that because I found the dress!

My WHOLE experience was a DREAM! I couldn’t have done it without the help of lovely Andi! She was great & made me feel super comfortable & listened to my needs & wants in picking out a dress! Extremely grateful for her and all of her help :)

My experience at Celebrations of the Heart was amazing! My stylist was Melanie and she was so helpful and goes above and beyond! I felt more relaxed going into my appointment the day of as I had already met Melanie via FaceTime where she showed me some dresses and asked questions about the wedding. She was very kind, and helpful in every step of the way. Each dress that Melanie pulled had something that I loved about it, and for the ones I didn’t love, she found something even better! I truly did not believe that I would find my dress the first time, but when I broke down it tears I knew it was the one! ?? I honestly cannot say enough positive things about this bridal store!

So glad I chose to come to Celebrations of the Heart. I felt I was truly taken care of and had the best experience I could have had! They are so passionate about helping you find the right dress and don’t stop till you do. They are truly amazing and I’d suggest them to anyone around!! Thank you so much!

Gigi did an amazing job helping me find the most beautiful dress! She took all of my feedback on the details that I loved in a dress and helped me find the perfect one! She was so nice and made me feel very comfortable during the fitting process! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience finding my wedding dress, and have always had a great experience with past prom and bridesmaid dress purchases as well. Thank you!!

Makayla Rogers from Manhattan

My stylist was Gigi and she did a fantastic job! We FaceTimed a few weeks before my appointment to get a feel for what I was looking for (as this was my first time wedding dress shopping). Gigi had stellar options picked out that were definitely "me". I said yes to my dress within an hour and a half and was on my way- the whole experience was just so fun and so easy. Can't wait to wear my dress again!

Going into my appoint I was really nervous, but Melanie made sure to change that. She listened to me and really tailored each dress she pulled to what my vision for my wedding day was. She made sure all the details were taken care of and was so kind the entire appointment. I can't thank the team at Celebrations enough for making my appointment perfect and helping me say yes to the dress!

I had the absolute best experience. It was so amazing. Joy, laughter, and bliss filled the room. I was so grateful and pleased at how well they knew me and exactly what I wanted. I’m so glad I chose Celebrations of the Heart!

My previous dress shopping experience at another store was terrible, but Gigi was phenomenal! I appreciated all the help Gigi provided. She was patient and enthusiastic. We started with the ones she pulled in our pre-appointment and we kept trying on until we found MY PERFECT DRESS! I couldn't be more thankful. Gigi, you rock!

It was AMAZING! Andi definitely knew what she was doing and was absolutely great with me! She listened to every blunt thing I had to say and was able to find me the perfect dress!!!

Awesome experience & so much love for my stylist, Andi, who picked my PERFECT dress!! Could not be happier!

My experience at Celebrations was flawless! Communication was very easy and timely. I really enjoyed having the pre-appointment zoom to get the chance to meet my stylist and see some options of dresses. Andi definitely goes the extra mile. I felt like she really understood what I was looking for and pulled each dress with my vision in mind. If there was an aspect of a dress that I was uncertain about, Andi knew how to find something better. Finding my dream dress in less than two hours was not something I expected but the salon and everyone working there made it easy!

I can't even say enough good things about this lovely shop! Andi was the SWEETEST and searched for my dream dress and found the PERFECT one. She and the other girl helping(I'm so sorry I can't remember her name!) were so kind and patient as I tried on a million dresses and kept not getting the "feeling" about a dress. I was so torn and indecisive. My sister showed Andi a picture of a dress I had saved on Instagram about a dozen times and once she saw this Andi ran to the front of the store and came back with a dress almost the exact same, yet better from that photo!! An absolute dream!! It was so refreshing to be around such truly kind, relaxed, and patient people just wanting me to find the perfect dress for the perfect day. I cannot wait to wear the dress and veil on my dream day and proudly represent Celebrations of the Heart.

Andi was absolutely wonderful from the first interaction. She was so sweet and helpful. The dresses she picked were all gorgeous and fit my idea so well. Finding my dress at Celebrations was so easy and I will recommend it to everyone shopping for their dress.

I was so excited and a bit nervous to go wedding dress by myself during the Pandemic, but Melanie and Gigi made it so easy! They even set up my Mom in Hawaii on an ipad to Zoom the whole appointment so she could be there virtually and be a part of the whole experience! I had been following Celebrations of the Heart since I knew my husband and I were moving to Manhattan last March and love that they are always so active on Instagram to showcase new dresses in the shop. I ended up saying Yes to the dress that I fell in love with months ago from one of the said posts! It's so beautiful and I can't wait to wear it in July 2021 for our big wedding we've been waiting for! Thank you ladies!

I was so please with how Celebrations of the Heart really listened to the type of dress I wanted. And if a dress didn't work, my consultant found a dress that was exactly what I wanted!!

I had a wonderful experience! Melanie was so nice and made me feel super comfortable. She was just as excited as I was which made me more comfortable. The dress selection was beyond my expectations. I'm not a small or even average size and I have a hard time finding clothes that fit. When I arrived at the store, Melanie had plenty of dresses in my size picked out for me.

The Celebrations staff was incredibly helpful and made us feel very comfortable for our first (and only!) bridal appointment. They offered great insight throughout the process and helped me find the perfect dress for my wedding!

I had a fantastic experience! With COVID I was worried that I would be limited on the amount of people that would get to come with me, but you guys were very accommodating! Not only was everyone super friendly but I was able to say yes to a dress! I would definitely recommend to any & everyone!

Celebrations 10000% has my heart. Going into my appointment I felt cautious that I wasn't going to find my dress. BOY WAS I WRONG. The staff was incredible at totally adjusting my styling in the middle of the appointment. It was fair to say I had NO idea what I wanted. They were so patient and kind. I absolutely loved my experience and I would HIGHLY recommend going to Celebrations of the Heart as your first stop! xoxo

I had the best experience here! Andi contacted me several times before my appointment and we zoomed to discuss my style. She had several dresses ready for me when we arrived and was very supportive when I decided to switch it up. She didn't rush through the process and made it super fun for me and my family. I left my appointment with my dream dress and I couldn't thank her enough for her help!
Dani Schwarz from Manhattan, KS

My experience with Celebrations of the Heart was great! I was able to meet with my stylist (Andi) virtually before the appointment to discuss my style and preferences. The dresses she had selected for me to try on matched my style so well. She also encouraged me to try on styles I didn’t think I would like, and I am so glad she did because I ended up picking a dress that was a different style than I originally planned! I have nothing but positive feedback about my entire experience and would definitely recommend going to Celebrations of the Heart for bridal shopping! :)

It was so easy to come in and have a few dresses I had seen before and try on. Caitlin was truly so amazing and so helpful! She was able to find dresses after eliminating choices. She helped me find the perfect dress! I am so excited for my day to get here to wear it again!
Candyce from Topeka, KS

Caitlin was my consultant, and she was incredible! From the time I set up my appointment until the time I paid for my dress, she went above and beyond. This was the ONLY bridal shop out of four that I had on my list that contacted me before the appointment to talk to me about my vision for my big day. I was even able to set up a FaceTime appointment with Caitlin before my scheduled bridal appointment where I was able to meet her and she was able to get an idea of what types of dresses I was interested in. Before I even arrived at my appointment, I told my fiancé that I hoped I would find my dress there, because the service I had already received was outstanding. Caitlin made me and my entourage feel welcome. She took the time to talk to me about my relationship with my fiancé. She genuinely cared about giving me the best experience possible! I would have never thought I would have found a dress at the second bridal boutique I went to, but I am so thankful for the experience I had with you guys. I would recommend this boutique and Caitlin to anyone who is in search of their dream dress! And I am so excited to show off my dress in a couple months!

I wish these ratings could go to 10 stars!! Caitlin was so fun to be with and since we already met once on FaceTime, the appointment felt very personable. The store is beautiful and and in such a great location. I would definitely recommend Celebrations of the Heart to ANY and ALL brides.
