Best Bridal Showroom in NYC!!! – I had been shopping for a wedding dress for about four months when I came upon Cymbeline. I am not your traditional bride, so I was really having a hard time finding a dress. I could envision in my head what I wanted, but hadn't come across it yet. All of the bridal gowns started looking the same. Finally, I walked into Cymbeline for my appointment and immediately I knew it felt different. I was greeted my the manager, Mona, who couldn't have made my best friend and I feel more comfortable. She was so warm and inviting. Alot of showrooms are stuffy, and you feel like you are not allowed to touch the dresses. Cymbeline is the total opposite of that. My friend and I browsed through the amazingly gorgeous and unique collection while Mono poured us a glass of wine. We were the only clients in the showroom, so you really felt at ease and not rushed at all. I told Mona what I was looking for and my budget, and she brought out a sample sale dress from the back room that she thought sounded very close to what I was describing. Well.... all I can say is she had absolutely nailed it! I put it on, and felt that feeling that I had been waiting to feel for four months!!! I had found my dress!!!!! She then began to accessorize with ear rings and a choker necklace... which made me feel even more beautiful. All three of us celebrated as Mona took pictures capturing the moment. Finding 'THE' dress was more blissful than I had ever imagined. I was elated for weeks afterwards... thanks to Mona and Cymbeline!!!
YOU WILL BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BRIDE!!! – OK, so I had absolutely no idea what kind of dress I wanted for my wedding...I always pictured my wedding day but never pictured what my dress would look like...I must have tried on 40 dresses from 5 or 6 different shops until I found...MONA ATWA! She was a God-sent! From the moment I walked into the shop, I knew I had found my dress...I just didn't know which one yet. Not only are the dresses the most extraordinary and beautiful (truly!) I have ever seen, Mona Atwa, the manager of the showroom will make you feel like you are the only customer she has! She truly treats you like family...as if she is your maid of honor helping you to find a dress. I never thought shopping for a wedding dress could be this wonderful and I have not stopped raving to people about my experience! In fact, I joke (kinda!) that it was fate that I found Mona and Cymbeline--it was meant to be for me! I highly recommend going to Cymbeline and don't waste your time going anywhere else! You will be so happy--trust me! You will feel like the beautiful, blushing bride you dream of being on your wedding day!
Wonderful Experience and great service – I just have to tell everyone about the most wonderful experience my daughter and I had shopping for wedding dresses. Mona greeted us warmly and spoke with my daughter at great length. After some time, they walked around the salon and picked out many dresses. Then they got to ?the dress?. Mona looked at my daughter and said, ?This is the dress for you?. In truth, I have never seen my daughter?s face shine as much as it did that day. The self-esteem that emanated from her was truly a sight to behold. . Mona has made our quest to find the perfect wedding dress a wonderfully delightful experience. She is in charge of every fitting and has taken a sincere personal interest in my daughter?s well-being. We cannot wait for the big wedding day! I promise that I will write again and let you know how it all turned out!!
Outstanding, exceptional, personalized, attentive to detail... Mona – I don't want to sound redundant but I had been looking all over New York for a wedding gown, went through 18 appointments and finally got desperate and resigned myself to getting a gown I kind-of-liked at another bridal salon. There was always something wrong or missing in all my appointments. Luckily, I found Cymbeline last minute who had opened a showroom just a couple of months ago. I decided to go check it out and found an extraordinary experience of personalized, attentive to detail, and unique service. This is Mona, not a salesperson, a designer and stylist herself. She was able to read me, understand exactly what I was looking for and how I wanted to look like on the most important day of my life. She envisions my look and that was nice to get a not-so standard set of questions as in other bridal salons, but an artist who is trying to figure me out as a person and making my perfect gown come into reality! How? Mona grabbed fabrics, pinned, put on accessories, and spent as much time as needed to show me she knew what I wanted. And she did. I came back 1 hour after (from another appointment) and she was still there, we did it again (I should mention she is incredibly patient!) and there, I got the famous feeling that I read about "Oh, that's it, that's the dress!". I just ordered the dress of my life and I cannot wait to get to my fittings with designer Mona.
These 4 visits at Cymbeline have been the best experiences I have had.
Exceptional service and beautiful gowns at a reasonable price point – After 5 months of appointments at high end wedding boutiques and department stores in NYC, I felt as if I was seeing the same dresses over and over, and was surprised at the lack of personal attention and assistance at some very high end stores.
My experience at Cymbeline was a breath of fresh air. My friend and I were the only ones in the store during my appointment which made it a very personal experience.
I tried on a number of gorgeous dresses and bought one I "loved" (finally!) on the spot. The showroom is clean and bright and has many dresses in all different styles. The dresses are also very reasonably priced considering the expert cut, detail and fabric.
Mona is not only a sweetheart, but also a designer herself, so she understands how dresses should fit, has insight about what will suit you, and can recommend alterations to make the dress perfect for you.
I suggest you look at their dresses online and tell them which you favor before your appointment. If possible, they will make sure the dress you like is in the showroom for you to try.
I highly recommend Mona and Cymbeline to anyone who is looking for intellegent, personal service and a beautiful well-made gown at a reasonable price.
the *best* bridal experience – After visiting MANY bridal salons and not finding a dress that truly fit my vision, I called to see if there were any last-minute appointments at Cymbeline while my mother was in town helping me find my wedding dress. We walked in to a beautiful, spotless showroom. Mona, the consultant about whom everyone else had raved (deservedly!), greeted us warmly. Designs are classic but up-to-date and deceptively simple, since the dresses are all made of the most beautiful French lace. They are light (not laden down with tule) and you will find dozens of alternatives to the ubiquitous strapless dress! I could have been happy in any number of the gowns I tried on, but I found one that was so perfect I never dreamed it existed. Mona really guided me to *the one*. She had a wonderful understanding of what would flatter me and also a sort of intuition about what I wanted for this most special day. I cannot offer enough glowing remarks about her and the whole experience. It really felt like I left Cymbeline with a new friend, and I have the utmost confidence that she will direct the alterations to make sure that the dress fits me just right. Over the past couple of weeks since we bought the dress, she has been quick to respond to any questions I have, and sent me pictures of the gown so that I can show my grandma. She is just a gem, and Cymbeline is a welcome breath of fresh air for the bridal industry of this country.
Editorial Review – Paris fashion in the heart of New York-designer wedding gowns, vintage, contemporary and traditional with accessories to pair.
The Perfect Dress – I tried on several gowns before visiting the Cymbeline showroom and hadn't found anything that I loved. I fell in love with a Cymbeline dress that I saw in a magazine and while it was not "the one," the second one that Mona suggested was absolutely perfect. I actually felt as if I had worn it before (I never thought this really happened). Mona was amazing and also took great pictures that I was able to share with my Mom and mother-in-law to-be. After only a few minutes Mona knew exactly what I was looking for. She even took a piece of material and created "flowers" for my hair so that I could get an idea of what the entire look might be. I have been extremely happy with my experience so far and can't wait for my first fitting next year. Mona and Cymbeline are not just selling a dress, they truly make you feel special and work with you on all the details.
A Great Experience – I looked for a wedding gown for quite some time and had no luck finding one that I loved. I came across an ad for Cymbeline in a bridal magazine and looked up the website. On their site I found they had several gowns I liked. I also found out that they had just opened a New York location recently and made an appointment to see them. My experience was just great. I met with Mona who showed me some beautiful gowns and together we found my wedding gown. It was everything I wanted in a wedding dress at a price that made me comfortable. She helped me take pictures so that I can show my mom who lives in CA being that she couldnt come with me to buy a dress. Everything seemed so easy and worry free. The space was relaxing and catered to one bride at a time, which made me feel special. I would recommend Cymbeline for their great selection of gowns and their reasonable prices. Go there its great!
