I went to about six other shops and tried on about 50 other dresses and Bridal Garden was my final stop and great. Gillian was amazing and helped me make decisions better than anyone else I had worked with. Alterations were great as well.
I will admit that I did not spend a ton of time searching for my special dress, but one trip to Bridal Garden was all that it took. I found the dress of my dreams in a matter of minutes and the price was unbeatable. (I even called around to make sure).
I can honestly say that I would recommend this place to any bride looking for a stress-less dress shopping experience. The saleswomen are all so kind and understanding and the alterations expert is not only hilarious but does incredible work as well. It is a little costly to have your dress altered here, but trust me- it's 100% worth it. Truly - I could not be happier.
Best of luck to all the future Brides!!
This was the first and only bridal shop I went to. Gillian, my bridal consultant, was beyond helpful and really did a fabulous job helping me find the perfect dress. The alterations department (Patricia) was also FABULOUS!!!
Bridal Garden is the nicest bridal store in our area (NJ rather than going into Philadelphia). My consultant listened to what I wanted, brought me several dresses, and found my dream dress. I fell in love with a dress that was out of my price range, and bought the sample dress which required significant alterations. She was a bit pushy and I realized afterward that I probably should have gotten a better price on the sample, or could have bought it new somewhere else for a better price.
However, Patricia, the woman who did my dress tailoring was FABULOUS! She did such a beautiful job, and at each of my fitting appointments she listened to all of my comments and concerns and addressed each of them. On my wedding day, my dress fit like a glove and I looked stunning! Thank you, Patricia! I highly recommend her tailoring skills if you buy your gown at Bridal Garden!
Let me start out by saying that I have never in my life actually taken the time to write a review (positive or negative) about an establishment, but I felt so strongly about my HORRIBLE experience at Bridal Garden that I felt like I had to.
This was my first choice to begin looking for a bridal gown and it couldn’t have been any more disappointing. My consultant was incredibly uncooperative and rude. She wouldn’t listen to me when I explained to her what I was looking for and was dismissive to my mother and bridesmaid.
If you want an enjoyable and pleasant gown shopping experience do not go to Bridal Garden.
I, like many brides, went to the Bridal Garden because they carried the designer I liked. I made an appointment during a trunk show to see a specific dress. They called and told me it would be there in time for my appointment and then called back to let me know that was a mistake and it would not be there on Sunday, but it would arrive Monday. I appreciated the heads up. So, I went for my appointment on Sunday with my Mom and MoH and tried on other dresses to get the feel of the place and the designer. My consultant, Diana, offered to come in the following day on her day off for another appointment the next day so I could try the dress on. I thought that was nice. The next day, I tried on the dress and loved it but I wanted it in another color and it was hard to picture it. I tried a Alabaster/Gray and wanted the Ivory. I could not take the chance and order a $4,000 dress (plus alterations, a veil, shoes, jewelery, etc...) and end up not liking the color on me. WELL, when I said I had to think about it, Miss Diana, copped an attitude and said, "But I'm giving you trunk show pricing." Like she was doing me favor. It was not a favor. It wasn't my fault the Bridal Garden didn't have the dress in time for their trunk show, of course "truck show pricing" had to be offered. EXCUSE ME, but $500 is not enough incentive for me to spend $4,000+ and take a chance. Besides, just because I come in and try on a dress that I really like does not mean you have a guaranteed sale! Its MY money, MY decision! She was pushy from the beginning, her "friendliness" was as real as a McDonald's hamburger, and was snobby when I needed time to think about it. If I decide to get this dress, which is highly likely, it definitely will not be from the Bridal Garden or Diana. I would rather spend that extra $500 than deal with them.
The Bridal Garden was my one-stop shop for most of my wedding needs and I couldn't have been happier! I purchased my dress, jewelry, and bridesmaid dresses there, and had my wedding gown alterations done there. The Bridal Garden was my first stop in searching for a wedding dress. I brought in pictures and my consultant, Danilelle, was exceptional and was right on target with the style that I was looking for. My wedding dress was the third one that I tried on. I went to one other bridal shop but knew I had found my dress at the Bridal Garden. Danielle and the rest of the staff were outstanding. The bridesmaids dresses were ordered there as well. The bridesmaid consultant did a fair job and the dresses came in on time and looked fabulous... despite some confusion/mishaps regarding sizing for one bridesmaid who was going to be 7 months pregnant by wedding day. My jewelry from the store was by Thomas Knoell, and all of his jewelry is STUNNING. It is unique and excellent quality using Swarovski crystals. I dropped my dress off for preservation at the Bridal Garden.... I am looking forward to seeing it again in 6 months! 5 stars for the Bridal Garden! Excellent bridal store in South Jersey.
Definitely recommend them! Service was excellent! Worked with my tough schedule to get all alterations done and kept going until I was 100% happy! I loved my dress and my experience at bridal garden!!
I went to Bridal Garden this past weekend. I want to start off saying they everyone was nice to me. I am a plus size bride. I found a plus size designer that had alot of dresses I liked. Bridal Garder advertised that they carried this designer, along with a big selection of plus size gowns. I called to make my appointment and they asked I printed out the dresses I like so I was prepared for them. I did just that I looked up all the designers they desplayed and picked out dresses. I got to Bridal Garden and they put my mother, my MOH, and myself in a room. I had to get undressed in front of them and stand there in my underwear and a small robe ( super uncomfortable). She brought in three dresses. Only two of them where plus sized. She told me they are they only two they had over a 16. That I could hold up the other dresses to my body and imagine what they would look like. REALLY? you want me to purchase a dress worth thousands of dollars that I imagined on my body? I was mortified! My appointment was at 2:30, I was in my car before 3. I called Alfred Angelo from their parking lot, drove 10 minutes down the street and purchased the dress of my dreams! Not only did they have a HUGE selection for me to look at and try on, if I liked a dress that wasnt my exact size, they pulled a dress in the same shape, in my size so I could see how it would fit. Maybe if i was smaller Bridal Garden would have been a good spot, but I feel you shouldnt advertise a whole plus size section, bring me in and embarrassme by telling me to play pretend with the dresses. I would not recomend.
Kai did a great job of finding me the perfect dress. I gave her my budget and an idea of a style and she pulled me tons of dresses until we found the perfect one. They weren't pushy and really do aim to make the bride feel beautiful. The service after I ordered my dress could have been better. They didn't tell me it was in, I had to call them. And they didn't call me to tell me when to schedule the fittings. I was a bit surprised by the cost of the alterations, but it was nice not having to take my dress someone else for alterations. I left it in the shop until 3 days before my wedding so I didn't have to worry about it getting wrinkled at home. Overall, loved my dress, but service could have been a little better.
The staff at Bridal Garden is definately snobby but they know their stuff and have a wonderful selection of gowns (although expensive). There was some conflict with the alterations department and the semstress' snobby attitude but I have to say I did not pull up my strapless dress once on my wedding day! I still find that amazing and for that it was worth putting up with the snobbiness.
A little pricey, but I think this is one of those "you get what you pay for" instances. The quality of the dress was great & the alterations staff was great. Trying on sample size dresses is hard, it would be nice if they would carry a couple of sample sizes. They are pretty strict with their policies & rules. The facility has a nice atmosphere & everyone acts very friendly but some of sales people come off as fake. Overall I was pleased with the product & services I received.
My experience with the Bridal Garden was friendly and easy. I know several other women who have gotten their gowns from here, and they are all beautiful. They worked with my budget and was available with any questions and requests I had.
Everything went fine with ordering my dress as well as the bridesmaids dresses. I loved them both. My issue was with alterations. They do not do any bridesmaids alterations, so everyone is on their own. I needed minimal alterations on my dress (hem, small tuck by the chest). By my third fitting the hem was still too long and uneven on one piece and the cups were not put in. WHen I went to pick up my dress, although the pick-up sheet said dress and veil, my veil was not pressed or ready. Unnecessary stress 2 days before a wedding.
I got my wedding dress here as well as my bridesmaids dresses. Debbie was my gown consultant and I loved her. She was very nice and patient with me and made me feel so comfortable and excited about my purchase. She constantly called to check in and keep me up to date on everything.
Irena helped with the Bridesmaids dresses and even went above and beyond to help with one bridesmaid whose dress was ruined when getting altered (not at Bridal Garden).
Everyone is very nice and easy to work with!
I tried 5 dress shops before coming to Bridal Garden. I was reluctant to travel so far for my dress but I am glad I did. I worked with Kye who was AMAZING and provided the best advice for how to accessorize my dress. She was open and honest about the dresses I tried on. I found my dream dress at Bridal Garden and Kye worked with me on the price. The whole team is helpful and patient when I would call to check on the dress. Excellent service, Clean facility, excellent selection for all price ranges. They sell very good quality dresses.
I recommend bridal garden to every bride I meet. When I was dress shopping I decided I wanted my dress to be "Made in America." The only dresses that are made in America are high end designers so I made a few calls to some boutiques and everyone told me there was nothing for me within my budget. But Bridal garden was more than happy to work with me. They showed me plenty of dresses in my budget some samples some new. It was the classic bridal gown story: The first dress Kye pulled for me I knew was the one but I needed to try on a few more to realize it. It was a lovely Tara Keelly drop waist with removable sleeves for church. It was absolutely perfect!
The fittings went perfect. I lost a lot of weight after ordering the dress and it had very delicate lace on the bodice but it was no issue and it turned out PERFECT. I got so many compliments on my wedding day about the fit and how the dress was "so me". If at all possible GO TO BRIDAL GARDEN!
Bridal Garden was the only store around that carried the designer and style of my dress. Gillian was very helpful in not only finding my dress but in finding similar styles for me to try. I got a fabulous deal on my dress and my bridesmaids dresses. My only complaint is that it was difficult coordinating bridesmaids orders; I do wish they had some sort of online system for it. Alterations were also challenging to schedule, mainly because it took a while have someone get back to you. All in all, everything was prompt and well done, my dress was absolutely beautiful!
My dress consultant was FABULOUS!! She was helpful and encouraged me to attend the trunk show for the designer Lazaro I was interested in. This led me to finding and purchasing my wedding gown. The seamstress was also excellent and my dress fit like a glove. The other staff were not as friendly or catering as my consultant Kye. I found myself only wanting to deal with her and felt as if in her absence, I'd wait until she returned. The other staff were not welcoming and If it wasn't for my consultant I wouldn't have bought my dress there!!
I was very pleased the initial time I went shopping - I Loved my dress and my consultant really listened to my vision. The dress I bought was the first one I tried on! The one thing that did bother me was there was little to no advice on anything else - I had to ask for a veil when we were getting ready to leave so that I could have one to match the dress! I also found after that first purchase they were no longer as warm and kind. The alterations woman did a wonderful job but getting in and out of your appointments was a long drawn out process - and not a ton of convenient times.
