Here is a write up of my experience with you guys.Enjoy!
My experience in dealing with Patricia Nascimento and the lovely Rose and Tina here South Africa was an absolutely amazing upmarket and welcoming one. As soon as I saw the wedding dresses on the website I had to go see them for myself and try a few on.Upon entering the shop Rose and Tina welcomed me in with such professionalism and yet made me feel comfortable like old friends having a chat. I walked around the shop while Rose and Tina helped me select a few dresses that would suit my body shape.I tried on two dresses and I had found “THE ONE”! It was absolutely beautiful and when I walked out the curtains it had made my mother and maid of honor burst out in unison “NOW THAT’S A CINDY DRESS!”. It was then I looked into the mirror and I was blown away…it was perfect and exactly what a wanted. I wanted a dress that would steal the show and be the talk of the town for the rest of my life. Every time a wedding dress would be spoken about, it would be about mine! The wonderful ladies at Patricia Nascimento in South Africa gave us fantastic service they showed me veils and trains for the dress and I unfortunately couldn’t afford both the dress and train for the day. The ladies had spoken to Patricia about the train and she decided to make one specifically for me for my special day and loaned it to me with no extra cost. All I had to do was give it back to them in the same clean way it had been given to me. That feeling of having someone help you to make your day everything you want it to be, was amazing.They had brought so much happiness to me and when I walked down the aisle the dress with the veil and train had blown my husband away… he was in awe and tears at how stunning I looked all because the ladies at Patricia Nascimento and Patricia herself had gone out of their way above and beyond. I never had a day of stress with my wedding dress. As soon as I paid the deposit in May,they told me they would try get it here by August but that it would probably only come in November…which i was happy with.It came on the 1st August and they phoned me straight away for a fitting…. it fit like a glove -PERFECT! Even when it came to 2 weeks before the wedding they had to tailor it for me a little as I had lost more weight,which they were more than happy to do - without an extra charge, and then got it dry-cleaned for me again without charging me. When I picked up my dress they gave me my train and veil. It was neatly pressed and clean and Rose and Tina were just as excited for me as I was for myself and it felt as they had become family in those few meetings. They offered to stay after work to see me, if I needed something and they were always going over and above what I expected. Even after my wedding day, I had to do a re-shoot as it rained and I didn’t get pictures with my husband, they allowed me to keep the train till after the re-shoot was done. They sent flowers to thank me for the business and yet I felt like I owed them more than flowers back for the amazing service I received. They always delivered if they made a promise and even when I didn’t expect something they knew how to make it happen to make my day even more special.
On my wedding day my mother and bridesmaids help me put on my dress and I felt so beautiful and like I had been dreaming. My dress made me feel every bit of a princess that you should feel on your wedding day. I walked down the aisle to gasps and ooo’s and aaahhh’s and whispers of how beautiful I looked. I had people come up to me and take pictures and touch the dress and marvel how beautiful it was and how perfect it was for me and how it fit me like a glove and suited my body shape.I felt every bit of important on the day and had people telling me that they had never before seen such a stunning dress or a bride more beautiful than myself.
Its now 10 months later going on 11, and I still have messages on Facebook or twitter about my dress. I still get people commenting on how beautiful and perfect the dress was for me. I have people asking me if they can borrow it or send them a photo to show a friend what my dress looked like. I constantly am given compliments when they go to weddings that my dress is still the best they’ve ever seen… I’ve even had my own clients from work telling me that my dress looked even better than Princess Catherine’s (The Royal wedding). I looked more stunning and had more of a WOW factor. I thank you all for making me feel so special and that even months later I still feel as special as I did on my wedding day. You all made that happen for me and I have so many beautiful photos. When people ask me if I’d ever let my daughter use my dress for her wedding, would I allow her to? Probably not… I love it too much that I never want it to get ruined and I want it to stay as beautiful as it is and its safe in the cupboard away from prying hands.
I will however hope the Patricia Nascimento’s shop will still be around with even a bigger workforce here in SA that I can buy her her very own dress from you for her wedding!
Thank you Rose, Tina and Patricia for making my wedding day one to remember!
