    positive review  My experience at Spotlight was incredible. Robbin and her team were so accommodating to my clan and I during my dress appointment. They had so many beautiful dresses that I had to choose from and one just so happened to be the one. I also loved the selection of menswear and bridesmaid dresses that they have, making it a one-stop shop! So excited to see what else I get from Spotlight, will definitely be recommending this place to everyone! ☺️

    positive review  I had no idea what to expect when I came to Spotlight to shop for a wedding dress, but to say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. My appointment went very smoothly and we all felt welcomed at the store. The dresses were all very reasonably priced, which automatically made the entire experience less stressful. Robbin made me feel so comfortable and there was never any pressure from her - she respected my opinions and is very easy to work with. I ended up finding a dress that was far below my budget and I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day! I can't thank Spotlight enough for making this experience so special.

    positive review  I'm so excited to have found my dream dress at spotlight!! Their collection is more unique than other stores, which was so fun! Spotlight was the forth dress shop I visited on my dress hunt and with no prior luck, I didn't have high hopes. I was pleasantly surprised. The ladies were awesome and the one that helped me was so good at helping me see my vision come to life. Wonderful experience. I can't wait to see my finished product!!

Additionally, they do fasion shows and have the most amazing personalized service. They have incredible prices and are a local and family owned/operated business. I highly recommend! 5 Stars!

    negative review  Awful service all around. The tailor that partners with Spotlight does a hack job on both taking in the dress and creating the veil. If you choose a veil at Spotlight DO NOT let the tailor make it (which unfortunately is the only option they give you). The picture on the left is the veil that we ordered for my sister, the picture on the right is what she made....Spotlight did nothing to make this right. Paid for the full bridal dress package which included steaming the dress the day prior of the event (because what bridal place doesn’t at least steam the dress for your big day??). Was this dress steamed you ask? NO. In fact it was noticeably wrinkled upon pick up. Owner was not there when we picked up the dress the day before the wedding and the teenage girl wasn’t about to offer to steam a dress, not sure she was “trained” to steam... yikes. Would never recommend Spotlight to future brides. This is your special day, don’t let spotlight ruin it.
