    I commend every bride to visit Powder first when searching for their gown as this is the only boutique you will need to visit to find your dream dress. I had the pleasure of working with these two wonderful ladies that made my bridal experience everything and more. Adriana and Romi are true masters as the wedding gowns they select are like no other and they treat you with the utmost care throughout the process. I look forward to working with them throughout the fitting process.

    I heard bad reviews about this place but I was pretty set on a dress that I couldn't get anywhere else. So I said a little prayer and booked. Overall, not a terrible experience. Tacky, but not terrible. For example, I went in with a few bridesmaids, my mom and my mother in law, I was paying for the dress, and I let the owner know that. After trying it on and loving it, she proceeded to yell the price across the studio. I was mortified. It was a lavish dress with a lavish price tag. I am very privileged to have a great job, and It's not my style to flaunt the money I make. It put a sour taste in my mouth. Fast forward a few months later when I have to get the dress fitted and that place was a ghost town. I couldn't get a call back after two messages and an email. Finally my maid of honour called and left a message explaining that I was upset, and spent a lot of money on my dress. When the owner called me she said "your friend called, and well, that was dramatic". Pardon?! For the money I spent, I'm good, I'll find somewhere else to do my fitting.
    I don't think Adrianna means to be tactless, I just think she's oblivious to what comes out of her mouth.

    At first I was very excited to come to Powder because they exclusively had some of the designers I was hoping to try. The night before my appointment I get an email, not a call, at 7pm asking me to confirm my appointment by 9pm. Seriously?
    My friends and I got to the salon and waited outside until they returned not a moment earlier than my appointment.
    I tried on so many dresses, including ones that I didn't like on the hanger as I did at other salons in an effort to keep an open mind but I felt as if I was just being shoved, yes shoved, into countless dresses just for the sake of it. Side note--was not impressed how damaged many sample dress were. I get it, things get damaged but other salons took much better care of their sample gowns.
    After my appointment, I thanked the team for their time and asked a few questions. No response. When I followed up weeks later, I got a 3 word response that was so blunt and unclear. When I replied asking for clarity, I got sass. No thank you. Not getting a dollar from me. Go elsewhere..

    Not the Bridal Shopping Experience you want

    1) Sent me an email at 7pm the night before my appointment asking I confirm by 9pm or else I risk losing my appointment--ridiculous; 2) I had to wait outside with my party until they all returned back to the shop which was not a minute sooner than my appointment; 3) Who I assume is the manager seemed not genuine at all, didn't really care to inquire about what I was looking for and just insisted I try on as many dresses as possible. Samples in-store are not taken care of (no other bridal shop's dresses were that damaged) and its probably because they rush and shove you in and out of dresses 4) Good luck getting a reply from them. Emailed them and got a 3-word unclear response AFTER following up with them weeks later. When asked for clarity, I got attitude. If you look through their other negative reviews, you'll see the same attitude from employees commenting on the post. Instead of working to improve their customer service they just attack their customers, all of which are saying the same thing.
