I had been to a few places before finding Bliss and Jessica, and none of them compared! Jessica is a bundle of energy with a contagious bubbly personality, yet she is extremely knowledgeable and honest! I knew Bliss was different than the other places I had visited when Jessica offered to open the salon 2 hours early to accommodate my schedule. From there, it was nothing but an over the moon, positive experience! I was thrilled when I realized that Jessica works one on one with her clients. The salon is absolutely adorable and the dresses are absolutely stunning and very, very affordably priced – I tried on 3, and realistically any one of them could have been the “one”, until I tried on the 3rd one – that was it, there was no topping it! Jessica made my entire dress shopping experience memorable! I would recommend Jessica and Bliss to every bride out there looking for the perfect dress! I am looking forward to working with her in the coming months!
All the positive things people have written in the other reviews are completely true! Jessica and Sandy are an amazing team and sooo incredibly awesome to work with. They will work with you to find whatever it is that you are looking for and are so happy and patient at the same time. They are meant for this business! I ended up buying my bridesmaid dresses here and having my bridal dress alterations done through the shop. Joyce did an amazing job on my alterations. I could not recommend this store more highly! You will be so happy you came in and chose to work with Jessica and Sandy!
I decided to check out Bliss Bridal by chance. They carried the designer I was interested in and the shop was conveniently located for me, my bridesmaids, and for my mom (living in different areas of New England and New York). While they carried the designer I was interested in, they didn't have the specific style I was hoping to try on. Jess made arrangements to have a sample shipped from AZ and I ended up purchasing that style.
From start to finish, Jess and her staff accommodated every request and helped make my dress perfect for the big day. I had extensive tailoring (changing the waistline from drop to natural, while having to keep an intricately beaded bodice in tact). Their seamstress Joyce was patient and friendly, and is truly talented. The dress even better than I imagined!
Over the course of a year, I visited Bliss Bridal about 5 times (shopping, fittings, pick-up) and it was always a pleasure seeing Jess. She is a joy to work with and always (seriously, always) has a smile on her face. Her enthusiasm is constant and she genuinely cares about her work and clients. Everyone at Bliss Bridal helped make the dress search/decision much easier and stress-free.
They have a great selection of dresses, accessories, bridesmaids dresses, etc. and also offer dress cleaning and preservation after the wedding.
I had been look for dresses for a couple of months and didn't seem to be finding what I was looking for. I had been to small shops and big shops and just didn't feel like I had seen what I wanted. I also didn't appreciate that some shops only bring dresses that are at the top of your budget or don't have a large enough assortment. Bliss Bridal was my last chance to find what I wanted. From the start it was such a positive experience. Sandy sat with us and went through some tips and said we are going to give you these hearts and you can hang them on any dress that you see and would like to try on. That right there was so exciting to me. Up until this moment I had not actually shopped for myself. I had people bring me what they thought I would like. So this was great, we went through and started tagging dresses (for a smaller shop they had a wide assortment of dresses). The other interesting thing, is once you try on dresses they have adjusted lighting to show what you would look like in evening venue lighting. I had added about 4 dresses to my "wall of favorites" and slowly narrowed it down to two. I had another appointment to retry a previous dress, but inevitably came back to try on the final 2. I met with Jess the second time and she was so helpful and kind and once I picked my dress gave me a big hug of genuine excitement.
Thank you Bliss Bridal for such a wonderful experience.
This was the first stop on my hunt for 'the dress' as it came highly recommended from a close friend. I walked in and never felt more welcome and more like a bride. I had know idea what I was looking for and Jess and her mother were so helpful and so patient. I had so much fun trying on every dress! Of course I have one of those stories were the first dress I tried on was THE DRESS. But, I didn't know it at the time. After my visit here, I visited quite a few more shops around Connecticut but never had the experience I had at Bliss. I went back to buy THE DRESS and even found my mother's dress at one of their trunk shows. They were great at finding something trendy and "young" for my 50 year old mother. They helped me prepare and pack my wedding dress for my destination wedding and were so accommodating every step of the way. My alterations were perfect and I couldn't have been happier. DEFINITELY make this shop a stop on your hunt for your dress.
Bliss Bridal was amazing to work with. It was great to be with Jess and her mom who took the time, listened to my wants, and gave me the personal attention to picking out the perfect dress! They had a nice selection in their trunk show collections which come up periodically as well.
Bliss Bridal is absolutely amazing. They are extremely courteous and have an extraordinary amount of knowledge.
All of the dresses in this shop were absolutely beautiful. I had such a hard time picking my dress because each and every one was amazing. This was hands-down the best shopping experience I have ever had. The women in the shop know exactly what they are doing and are so friendly. I am telling all of my friends to get their dresses there!
I honestly cannot say enough good things about Jessica and the staff at Bliss Bridal! They were so incredibly helpful and cheery. Planning from 3,000 miles away was stressful, but knowing that I didn't have to worry about storing my dress or when I would find time for the dress fitting was helpful. They were very accommodating and I could not be happier!! One on one attention for an affordable price- you really should at least stop in and check it out. (I drove 40 mins for this one and am so glad I did)
The staff at Bliss is the best in the business. You get personalized attention and they have the most beautiful dresses. They treat you with such kindness and you don't feel like just another bride.
I did not purchase my dress here, because i fell in love with something overseas, but when i found my dress needed alterations i headed to Bliss.They were so friendly and willing to help, it was wonderful. A beautiful and intimate little shop, with beautiful dresses.
I worked with these ladies for over a year and loved every minute of it!
I found my gown in 20 minutes, and it was actually the one they took off the shelf because they had a hunch it would look nice! I was sold!
It was sparkly and accented my curves and just beautiful. Price was great too!
I bought my home made Swarovski jewelry from them as well during a trunk show they had. I just sparkled all day on my wedding!
3 for 3 I found my bridesmaids dresses there too and keep getting compliments on the beautiful classy black dresses the girls picked out.
They were so responsive via phone and email and even helped ease my mind with my "I now have a pregnant bridesmaid and she might not fit her dress" drama. I only wish I could visit them all the time, they were so nice and so personal!
When my sister gets married we will for sure be going back!
(Semi related side note - My own personal dress drama, just to share with future brides, if you buy sticky boobs do not count on them to stay up at your wedding haha! I ordered them off of eBay and they were not good as a second application. Stick with something from Victoria secrets! I had to throw on a random strapless bra I had, which I never wore during a dress fitting, so when I sat down I was a little busty because it was a pushup bra...not that anyone was complaining lol!)
I had an amazing experience with Bliss Bridal! This is an adorable, intimate boutique with many stunning gowns. I found my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses and a gorgeous handmade hair accessory here (they have exquisite handmade belts as well). Jess and her mother (co-owners) were so welcoming to me, and the personal attention they offer is very genuine. I still stop in to peruse the gowns and chat with the ladies! I highly recommend Bliss Bridal for brides and bridesmaids!
I can't say enough about working with Bliss Bridal for my wedding dress. I was looking for a specific dress so I ended up there by chance because they had a similar one- I'm so glad I did. It was just my mom and I for my appointment and Jess and her mom didn't rush us- only encouraged me to try on whatever I wanted. I ended up finding my perfect dress, and it wasn't even the one I thought I wanted. I ended up ordering my veil from there as well and for my wedding everyone was commenting on how beautiful my dress was. Their seamstress did a wonderful job with my alterations as well. I'm so glad I stumbled upon Bliss- Jessica and Sandy really made my mom and I feel like family and it was such a pleasure to work with them!
My niece honored me with an invitation to join her at Bliss while she tried on wedding dresses. As she said in her review, Jessalou513, she didn't make it easy for them. She had an overall vision of what she wanted, but nothing really specific. She tried on a few dresses, and then she came to "the one". Jessica (the owner) and her Aunt could not have made this whole experience easier and more enjoyable. Jess (my niece-confusing, right?) and Jessica then "played" with all the different ideas she envisioned to customize the dress and bring her dream dress to fruition. When it was put into the extremely capable hands of the seamstress, the finished product was very different from its starting point, but it was a perfect manifestation of Jess's vision. Watching the creative process unfold was amazing and fun. Our time wasn't rushed - instead we felt as if we could have stayed for hours if necessary. The setting is intimate and Jessica and her Aunt made us feel like family. From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience for my niece. I highly recommend Bliss Bridal, especially if you're looking for a more intimate, boutique-type setting, and you want to work with a creative group that makes you feel special. You won't feel like you have to "take a number and stand in line". You, and the vision you have for your special day will be the primary concern of everyone at Bliss Bridal.
I was a bit nervous about shopping for a wedding gown. I do not like dealing with overzealous sales people and being pressured to make a decision quickly. Jessica and Sandy my my dress shopping experience a breeze! Not only did Jessica encourage me to try on as many dresses as I liked, she wouldn't let me make a decision until I was confident with the dress I loved. Jessica had me try on dresses I envisioned myself getting married in a few years ago as well as several dresses I envisioned myself getting married in now. Jessica and Sandy not only helped me to find my dream dress, but helped my bridesmaids, my mother, and my fiancé's mother find their dresses too. Best of all, my dress and the mom's dresses were reasonably priced due to trunk sales at Bliss Bridal! :)
I had the most wonderful experience working with Bliss Bridal! I initially went to their shop because they carry a line of dresses that I was looking at and I'm SO happy I did. They are kind, knowledgeable, so sweet and didn't pressure me into buying a dress at all. I was lucky enough to find my dress there and couldn't be happier. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a nonstressful dress buying experience!
Jess and her mom were so amazing with everything! We bought my gown, the bridesmaids gowns and my moms gown there and never had any problems. We also had the alterations done and all of the dresses came out beautifully. Jess helped me with so much and even helped with other issues with the wedding that I was having! Bliss Bridal is honestly one of my favorite vendors.
My mom and I recently visited Bliss Bridal after a botched appointment earlier in the day at another bridal salon. I called Jessica at Bliss Bridal, and she was able to fit us in right away for an appointment. As soon as we arrived, Jessica and her mom, Sandy, were so friendly and welcoming. The shop is very tastefully decorated and nicely organized. I loved that they let you browse the selection and tag your favorites before trying on dresses. They had such a great selection of dresses despite being a smaller store. I seriously loved at least 4 that I tried on! Both Jessica and Sandy were very knowledgeable about their stock and the designers that they work with. I already have an appointment to go back in a couple of weeks so I can make my final decision and buy my dress. I can't wait! If you want a friendly, fun, and relaxed dress shopping experience, then go to Bliss Bridal!
I went to Bliss full well knowing that I would get nothing short of perfection. I didn't make it easy for them either, I went in with a vague idea of what I was looking for but knew that I would want to do some custom alterations. In the end we took a dress off the rack and completely changed it. It was perfect. Jess is an amazing girl, full of helpful ideas and honest opinions. We had a lot of fun throughout the process, I highly recommend Bliss to any bride to be looking for a great experience a beautiful high quality dress.
