Laura and RoseAnn were excellent in assisting me on the day of my wedding! The services they provided throughout the entirety of my special day was well worth every penny.  They arrived early enough to help me get dressed, helped the groomsmen with their tuxedos, assisted my bridesmaids with zipping up and fixing their dresses and even made last minute adjustments to my dress and the bridesmaids dress. RoseAnn and Laura carried the bridesmaid’s bouquets from the hotel to the church and back, which was a huge help.  They bustled my dress and took my veil out before the reception and stayed with me until I felt that I was ready to have them leave.  I couldn’t have gotten through the day without their unending , genuine help.  They were dressed beautifully themselves and were the calm spot in my hectic day.  I would highly suggest and recommend them to ANY bride to be!

It was great working with you last weekend at Avila! You did a great job gathering the bridal party and making the ceremony so special! I loved the way you were so professional and did everything with excellence!

I will definitely refer your shop to brides in need! Hope to work with you again Laura.

Thank you  to Maria’s Bridal for an outstanding job from beginning to end. Marylou was my bridal consultant in the store. She helped me find my dream gown, bridesmaids dresses, and tuxedos.  The icing on the cake was having her there on my wedding day. She was outstanding from assisting me to my bridal party to checking the progress of my vendors.  I was able to enjoy every moment of my day knowing I could count on Marylou to see everything else was running smoothly. I would definitely recommend that every bride take advantage of this incredible service! I guarantee there is not another bridal shop in the Tampa Bay Area that provides this caliber of service.
