Dearest Anita, Ghada and Sanet, thank you so very much for the most stunningly beautiful gown I could have ever dreamt of! I felt like an absolute princess and loved every minute I spent with you all during the process! You are such a talented team and I miss you all big time! So happy I chose to come to Vinka!
Dear Anita, a huge thank you to you and your team for creating my fabulous wedding dress. It was exactly what I wanted and I felt like a princess the entire day. I swished the train to my heart's content that day!!
Dear Anita, I really don't know how to thank you enough. You created my dream wedding dress and made the whole process so enjoyable also!! I felt perfect in the dress and LOVED wearing it - I got a bit sad taking it off knowing I wouldn't be wearing it again. You are truly amazing and a wizard at what you do - you do so much more than create amazing dresses - making brides feel amazing is priceless!
