It’s Award Season at MaeMe

          I’ve been working with the Bridal Boutique by MaeMe for a couple months now. I’ve learned that we pride ourselves on having outstanding customer service; we treat each bride like they’re our friend that we are personally styling for their big day. I was not surprised when our owner, Melissa, told me that we had won several awards for 2016 already. So, I’m going to take the time to brag on my team of bridal stylists and our gracious leader who made winning these awards possible. Borrowed & Blue challenged our local vendor community to contemplate which individuals represent the best that our market has to offer. The Bridal Boutique by MaeMe was voted “Best of Weddings” for 2016! The Knot, probably the most well known wedding planning website, has awarded us with the “Best of 2016” title. This particular award marks our fourth yearly win with The Knot which has placed us in the Knot’s wedding vendor Hall of Fame. Wedding Wire, another popular wedding planning website, awards vendors with the title “Couples’ Choice Award” for their annual recognition. One of our customers said, “My experience at The Bridal Boutique by MaeMe was excellent. The staff were friendly, very helpful, and knew just was I was looking for! I couldn’t imagine have found my dress anywhere else.” Gambit, New Orleans’ quirky and cultured news source, awards “Best of Weddings”  to different vendors each year. We won “Best Locally Owned Bridal Shop” thanks to the Gambit community! So, cheers to you for voting for us, recognizing that we work hard for you, and congratulations...

GREAT EXPERIENCE!

My experience with MaeMe has been great! The day I found my dress was such a great experience–they accommodated my large family and my MaeMe stylist Caroline was super patient! I tried on at least 10 gowns (just to make sure I wasn’t missing out on anything), and she was helpful and friendly the entire time. Each time I returned to MaeMe for bridesmaid dresses and my dress fittings, I have continued to receive excellent service, and my stylist always remembers me! I’m so excited for the big day, and I cannot wait to wear my gorgeous gown from MaeMe in about a month! Thanks so much! – Gretchen...

A breath of wedding fresh air!

I always envisioned that shopping for my wedding dress would be an easy, enjoyable event. So when the day came to go shopping with my crew: My Mom, Grandmother and MOH, we set out ambitiously with 4 set appointments that day, with MaeMe being my last appointment. My first three experiences were very daunting and exhausting all at the same time: From one of the helpers arguing with my Grandmother over a dress, to having to get fully naked in front of my crew to try on dresses, I thought the day was predestined to be hopeless. That was until we went to MaeMe. Not only is the bridal salon configured the most effectively (I could actually change in private before revealing the dress I was wearing) but their staff and wedding dresses were nothing but remarkable- I had not seen the level of taste of dresses like at MaeMe at any of the other 3 stores. They were all clean, fresh styles that the other salons were lacking. Megan was assisting me that day and she listened to exactly what I was looking for and more! She pulled dresses I would have NEVER have picked out for myself. And thanks to her expertise, I ended up going with the dress that I wouldn’t even have given a chance. I am completely in love with my dress and I valued MaeMe and their staff so much I got my bridesmaids dresses from there as well! If you are looking for a wedding breath of fresh air- MaeMe is the shop for you! – Katie...

LOVE LETTERS TO MAEME: AUGUST 2011 EDITION

LOVE LETTERS: AUGUST 2011   Ok, so I just finished booking everything and saw that there was a David Tutera trunk show going on this past weekend at the new bridal boutique on Severn in Metairie.  My mom and I decided to go even though the wedding is almost a year n a half away…we were just going to look to start getting a feel for what style would look good on me.  Well, one of the owners, Mandy, waited on me.  She was absolutely INCREDIBLE.  She was so sweet and gave me her utmost attention.  She took me through the racks and picked up about 10 dresses I thought I would like.  She didn’t limit me to 4 or 5, she told me to pick up every single one I thought I might like.  It was absolutely a full-service salon experience.  In fact, multiple employees were waiting on me throughout the appointment.  When I said yes to the dress (which i totally didn’t think I would do on my first time shopping for dresses) everyone started applauding and poured champagne for my mom and me.  Although they had other customers in the store, I felt like I was the only one.  I don’t have other experiences to compare this to, but from what I’ve heard, many bridal salons are snobby and arrogant and this was just the opposite.  The dresses in the salon are stunning and the most expensive one in the store was only $2400.  My dream dress was $1200.  I just want to let all the brides out there know that Bridal Boutique by MaeMe is an...

LOVE LETTERS TO MAEME: JULY 2011 EDITION

Thank you so much for your undivided attention and help this past weekend.  I had an amazing experience and I will definitely be seeing you in the future! -Lindsey Eck   As the mother of the bride, I have to say that Melissa’s patience, suggestions, and service has made shopping for Sarah’s dress such a pleasure.  The first time we went to the store, Melissa and Mandy threw out the welcome mat in such a warm way that when we went back the second time for confirmation, it was like coming home.  And then of course today when we went for dad’s approval of “the” dress, Melissa’s personal attention to detail and her genuine excitement when Sarah walked out with a glow and teeth showing was evident as we became part of Mae Me’s familly of brides.  Shop around — but eventually you’ll want to come home to MaeMe!!! -Debbie Gustafson   You girls are the best! Loved the service and beautiful gowns!  Thank you so much for your awesome service and patience ! I sure will recommend you to everyone ! even though you made me cry when I saw how beautiful my daughter was in her gown and veil. -Joyce Hebert Chiasson   Thank you again for the wonderful service and for making the experience just as wonderful!!! -Desiree Dupleix Petite   I’m sure I will look stunning thanks to you guys! I’m so excited can’t wait for my big day and can’t thank y’all enough for the dress of my dreams and wonderful personal service today! Now my pink Cadillac Vegas wedding will be perfect!! 🙂...
