Merike made the bridal process so much easier on me! I just picked up my dress today for my upcoming wedding, along with my 5 bridesmaid dresses. We are all extremely happy! The shop appears small but trust me, she has exactly what you are looking for no matter the occasion. I explained the type of dress I wanted and the first one Merike pulled was the one!

She also pulled 2 other dresses that I loved but I couldn’t stop thinking about the first. She is extremely knowledgeable with body types and found dresses that would be flattering to my shape. I live in Ottawa, getting married near Hamilton, and Merike did not hesitate to be available when I was in town, both weekends and evenings. The prices are competitive and the service is incomparable! I am most amazed with the alterations she did on the lace bodice portion of my gown. It was seamless and truly amazing how perfect the dress looked. She took the time to show me exactly how to put it on and take it off since there are a few more steps involved than your average cocktail dress. From our experience, I have no hesitation in recommending Merike. Thank you Merike, I love my dress and my bridesmaid dresses!

Merike is a true artist who understands the importance of a brides big day, her dream and her wedding gown. I couldn’t have stumbled upon a better woman to help prepare me for my day.

Merike is amazing and goes the extra mile. I found my wedding dress at Jeffery Bridal and Merike did the alterations. Her quality of work and customer service skills do not go unnoticed – she is very personable, friendly, and truly cares about her work and customers. My mother was also impressed and ended up getting her mother-of-the-bride dress altered here as well. We would absolutely recommend Merike to others.
