Our Brides Speak
Mike & Kellie
Mike and I would like to extend a special thank you to you both! My gown and the girls dresses were absolutely perfect for our beach wedding. We received compliments from everyone, especially about the girls colorful choices.
After being extremely discouraged looking at numerous other bridal boutiques to find your beautiful store was a miracle. The thought of traveling to the Twin Cities for a dress was disheartening and something I really didn’t want to do. I found my perfect dress in downtown Richmond! You’re gowns are unique and beautiful! You will always be at the top of my referral list when it comes to bridal.
We had a 1950's themed wedding and I was looking for a certain type of tea length dress...which seemed impossible to find in central MN. I ordered two dresses online from overseas...which were a waste of my time and money.
The Thursday before the wedding I stopped in the store to pay for our flowers...which were also amazing. My sister-in-law asked to use the restroom. Sue said, "Oh sorry, it looks like the light was left on".
When I looked back I saw this light this gorgeous...actually, I don't even think there is a word to describe this dress. It was that amazing. It was like something out of a movie. I asked, "Is that a tea length dress?" She said, "Yes, would you like to try it on?" I said, "No, it won't fit." Jen looked at the size and it was my size. I tried it on and fell in LOVE with it.
That was my dress! It was passed closing and they almost had to hold me down and rip it off me. I was grinning ear to ear! I decided to sleep on it since I had already bought three wedding dresses. They priced the dress out and told me to come back in the morning if I wanted to get it. I showed my Mom, Dad, sister, best friend, and soon to be inlaws and they said "GET IT!" I barely slept a wink that night.
I grabbed my mom and sister-in-law and flew to the store so we were there when it opened. Jen and Sue both laughed when they saw me that morning. The only thing that needed alterations was the lace on the shoulders and they said they could do it that day. Where else can you go that would do alterations that SAME day on a wedding dress?
We also got our bridesmaid's dresses there, which were made of good solid material and flattered everyone's figure. Sue and Jen put up with all the very opinionated bridesmaid's comments. Jen and Sue did a phenomenal job and went above and beyond my expectations.
I've visited a ton of stores on this voyage for the perfect dress and these ladies are hands down the best vendor! They made our day very special!
We are a full service bridal salon, offering bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, tuxedos, floral and more. We also sell suits and rent tuxedos.

“Wedding and Tuxedo Connection and Jen did an amazing job helping with our wedding! Jen was so easy to work with and they had such a great variety of dresses for everyone. I was able to find my dress, the bridesmaid dresses and our Mother's dresses all at one place! Jen and her team also helped decorate our venue and it turned out amazing- even better than I could ever imagined. She used a combination of décor that she already had along with some items that my husband and I had personally made. Extremely impressed with Wedding and Tuxedo Connection and will continue to recommend them to everyone I know!"
