"Mei was an absolute pleasure to work with when designing my dream wedding dress. I started working with her in February 2020 for a rush order to be ready in time for my June wedding - but when we had to postpone due to the pandemic Mei and her team were so understanding. Mei helped me design my dress from scratch - combining my favorite elements from other dresses I tried on. It turned out so beautiful and Mei was so helpful throughout the whole process. I also loved that it was made locally, which allowed us to avoid any shipping delay concerns with the pandemic. I visited the shop multiple times for fittings throughout our planning process and always felt safe and comfortable. Mei was so patient throughout the 2-year process and so sweet to talk with. The dress fit perfectly and was comfortable. I got so many compliments. I am sad that i no longer have an excuse to visit Mei at the shop but hopefully, I can bring friends searching for their wedding dresses to her shop soon. If you're looking for an enjoyable wedding dress creation experience I can't recommend AT Romance enough!"

"Dear Mei, I wanted to thank you for making my dress shopping experience so memorable! I still remember walking into your store the first time after visiting many other overwhelming and disappointing steps. The entire ambience just spoke to me! The music, the calm environment, and of course you! Thank you for always being patient with my concerns, giving helpful advice, and for always being so kind! The dress made me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. I wish I could wear it again haha! I received many compliments and it's all thanks to you and your team!"
