I am 6'1" tall and I tried on gowns at several bridal shops. To ensure a beautiful fit a consultant at each store told me they could "add length" to the bottom of most dresses. But, I needed them to drop the shoulder to drop the bust, drop the waist AND lengthen the dress to fit my body perfectly. At Avenia I met Nancy and she knew that all of those things needed to be done to have a perfect fit. I ended up having a custom gown made and it was finished in 7 weeks without a rush and was ready two months before my January wedding! Nancy was lovely to work with and her staff was professional - worth every penny!!
Nancy made my perfect dress and was extremely helpful, friendly and hard working! I would recommend her to anyone looking to have their wedding dress made.
I absolutely love Avenia Bridal. Such a pleasure to work with them. I purchased my accessories from them and tried on dresses as well. Their staff truly cares about helping you and making you feel comfortable. They carry many great designers and have a very classy salon. I was blown away with their follow up and professionalism. They can make custom gowns as well as full alterations for gowns bought in-house. I wish I was working there and I wish I hadn't gotten my gown elsewhere. The only reason was to trim my budget. Go check them
Out as soon as you get engaged. You will not regret it.
Nancy made a custom red and gold wedding dress for me! I'll never forget Nancy and all of the wonderful ladies at Avenia. I was always so welcomed at every dress fitting. Nancy and the ladies of Avenia will make sure your vision is brought to life!
I was really hesitant about getting a dress from a dress store. Silly, right? But I didn't want to look like a cookie cutter bride and didn't think they would have my style. Honestly, I just wanted a sundress off of Etsy. But it was important to my mom to have the wedding dress shopping experience together. She lives out of state and would only be here for one day to find the dress.
Avenia was our first stopped. I described to them everything I was thinking. The woman helping us thought for a minute, went into the back and then brought out the perfect dress. She nailed it. I could tell she had really listened to me.
I've had the pleasure of working with Nancy Barrus on two formal gowns (one custom and one for alterations), as well as having alterations done on dress suits for two special occasions. She simply is amazing! Her talent is exquisite. She has an amazing ability to turn a vision for a dress into a gown that you feel amazing in. Everyone on her staff is wonderful. So kind and helpful! From the moment you walk in Avenia Bridal they are about the experience and making you feel special. You feel like one of the family! The last few times I was there for fittings I had my girls with me and they were in awe of the gorgeous gowns. They are still little (only 5 and 7 :) but I couldn't think of anyone else I would take them to when their special day comes! For any formal or wedding needs there is no question...we call Nancy! :)
I loved my experience at Avenia! From the beautiful atmosphere to the great customer service. I felt they really cared for me-- I wasn't just another client. Nancy designed by custom gown and it turned out more beautifully than I could've ever dreamed! Can't say enough good about them!
I went to Avenia as a last stop on the first day I tried on gowns and I hadn't really loved anythibg I'd seen all day. I was originally planning on making my dress (I am a clothing construction major) and only went to look and get some ideas. After trying on the first dress Avenia I knew I was going to like this place. Everyone was so nice and helpful! I of course loved every gown I tried on, but finally decided on a blush Lis Simon gown. It was perfect! I felt like a bride and so beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Nancy helped me with my alterations (I did them myself, but she helped with ithe fittings). I loved going to Avenia and have recommended it to all of my recently engaged friends. If you are looking for excellent service and gorgeous gowns Avenia is the best place to go!
Avenia is amazing. The service is wonderful and everyone that works there is so friendly. They don't pressure you into anything. They make you feel very comfortable and at ease with trying to choose your wedding dress.
I loved two dresses from Avenia. I couldn't decide which one to go with. I decided to do a custom gown and combine the two! The quality of the dresses that they make and have in stock are so good and better than any other place I have been.
There is no point in going anywhere else. Avenia has the best!!
First off, Nancy is amazing. She is the owner and oversees all alterations and seriously knows exactly what she is doing. The salon is beautiful, all the dresses are beautiful, and the service there is so awesome. They treat you so good there. Nothing but good things to say about Avenia Bridal!
I originally purchased a dress, but it ended up not being exactly what I wanted. I googled around and found some reviews on Nancy Barrus at Avenua Bridal in Orem, and made the 45 minute drive to meet with her. She is what i'd like to call a wedding dress genius. She worked on a sketch and then we met about 6 times after that for the creation of my dream dress. Nancy is awesome - she's super honest, which I loved right of the bat, and also very sweet and lovely to be around. I recommend every bride-to-be having a custom dress made (with Nancy if you're in the area), as it truly will make you feel like a princess. Everything fits YOU perfectly, and you have the chance to create a custom dress that no one else has. Such a wonderful experience!
I really enjoyed this bridal shop. I had the top of my dress remade here and it turned out wonderfully. People still comment on how beautiful it was and I was beyond satisfied! They ended up working on it longer than they quoted me, but still only charged me the quoted price. The only drawback I had was there was a day delay as during the sewing process, some blood got on the dress from a pin prick. This wasnt a problem though, as they fixed the problem quickly and free of charge. I would definitely recommend it!
I actually live in Miami, FL and had a bad experience (highly overpriced, petty salesperson territorialism, lack of help, writing down the wrong gown and then not being able to find the correct one, etc.) with the bridal store on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables where I found my gown. After searching online, I found that Avenia Bridal in Utah carried the dress. Lisa and her staff were WONDERFUL to work with - really knowledgeable and helpful - and so I ordered my gown through her. Even though I ordered it from thousands of miles away and even had to do some customization over the phone, I felt much more confident with Avenia than I did with the store in Miami. My dress was the perfect size and length, and it was gorgeous :) I highly, highly recommend you call Lisa at Avenia, regardless of where you live. She was with me each step of the way, and it was a wonderful experience.
I had the best experience finding my dream gown at Avenia Bridal. They made me feel like a princess. They were receptive to my feedback and patient with me as I tried on dress after dress. I found many unique and beautiful dresses there, and I was ecstatic to find my dress- completely unique and totally me. It came straight from NYC last fall, so their dresses are fresh and up-to-date. They also have an amazing seamstress who will create whatever you design, too. They have the option of building up (adding sleeves) to nearly every gown. I will definitely recommend them to friends in the future.
I can't say enough good things about Avenia. If you demand perfection in your dress, there is no other place you should even consider. Nancy Barrus is a goddess when it comes to alterations and will make sure everything is 120 percent right. Avenia's exquisite taste in gown selection and Nancy's ability to see how to make the dress be even more gorgeous and fit each specific body is incredible. Go check them out – you won't regret it.
I had my dress custom designed and made- and it turned out BEAUTIFUL.
Nancy Barrus sat down with me and sketched out some designs until we worked out something that I loved. The entire dress was completed in under 2 months. Nancy was incredibly nice and easy to work with. I would recommend Avenia to anybody!
