Don't Be Put Off by the Exterior.... – I made a "VIP" appointment and came in on a rainy Tuesday morning, and I, along with my group, couldn't believe this was the place. My mom even considered turning around because the road was so sketchy! But onwards we went - and I'm so glad we did!
My consultant was Rebecca, and I think she takes her role as "fairy godmother" very seriously. She had a very sweet demeanor and promised a wonderful experience. She asked me details about the wedding, the type of dress I wanted, etc, and explained that at Jon's it is off the rack - in today, and gone tomorrow. Into the racks we went, and she pulled dresses she and I liked, along with a few my group liked.
At first, I was thinking that she hadn't heard me properly about the type of dress I wanted - I liked the dresses, but they weren't what I saw for my wedding. I'm 90% sure she was making certain that I didn't want the "fairy tale" dress, rather than an informal one. After about 5 dresses, I strapped on a dress that I would probably never consider, but it was PERFECT. Essentially, the grown up, fancy version of the dress I had in my mind.
Rebecca was very professional, upbeat and yes, a little fairy godmother-esque. I really enjoyed her demeanor, and you can tell she's been doing this for a long time. Despite the appearance of the location, Jon's overdelivered and was under budget!
