Mari is very friendly and fast! She has a passion for wedding gowns and brides. Not only does she do alterations, she also does stunning custom bead work. I liked by dress before but now I am in love with my dress and can't wait to wear it. She removed a big flower that was on the corset and added bead work, made a french bustle, and removed some tulle to give me more shape. Also, she is using the flower that I had her remove from the dress and is making me a birdcage veil adding some feather and more beads. I can't wait to see it. All that (including the birdcage veil) cost me $135. Much better quality and friendliness than you'll receive at most bridal salons.
