It was an easy choice for the first dress and attire honoree, as sisters Shirley & Christine at Bridal Heirlooms in South Hadley seem to be doing everything right for brides and their families. Great service, care and knowledge are three qualities that Bridal Heirlooms take pride in with every client and that is why they are the Vendor of the Month for December. I first met Shirley and Christine a few years back when I picked up a bridesmaid dress for my wife. My two-minute stop turned out to be a 30-minute conversation about weddings, dresses and business. During the visit, I was able to see them interact with a customer as well. Genuine. Personal. Friendly. Those are the words that come to mind watching them work with a potential bride.

Everyone bride that I have come in contact with that has worked with Bridal Heirlooms has nothing but good things to say about Shirley and Christine. This bridal boutique carries the top designers like Maggie Sottero, Watters, and Jasmine just to name a few. Bridal Heirlooms can help brides find a wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dresses, or a even a tuxedo for the groom. The bridal boutique was recently honored by the Knot Best of Weddings for 2011 for all of their hard work  Whether you are getting married in South Hadley, or across the state in Boston, Bridal Heirlooms should be on your list your of places to shop.
