This was the first place I went to 3 days after getting engaged, and I had a great experience! The salesperson Joanne, was so helpful, friendly and really listened to me. Stars has a lot of really affordable, beautiful dresses (check out Barbara Allin designs, if you like the look of silk chantung, starts at around $1200). The bridal salon upstairs was very neat and I think I must have tried on at least 30 dresses, and Joanne was so patient and helpful. The seamstress, Mina seems very qualified and was very sweet. I am still looking at many other salons and boutiques to check out different designers and find ""the dress"". I will be going back for a second appointment to try on 3 dresses that are still on my list. I am very picky and keep changing my mind about what kind of style dress I would like to wear on my big day, and let me tell you the associate who helped me was PATIENT ( a big plus fo me)!!
