Excellent service, great prices & selection. Tricia did a phenomenal job altering my gown so that it fit perfectly! Highly recommended!
I first came to Country Bride after a friend referred me to their shop. The selection of dresses was phenomenal and they had a VERY wide variety. As someone looking for something different than the norms (NOT strapless, sweetheart, ball gown, etc). I was nervous that I would find the perfect dress, but they had not only one dress of the style I had my eye on. (An illusion necklined lace fit and flare with a dramatic back) They had multiple so I was able to choose the dress that was absolutely perfect. They also worked with me and the designer to make the little tweaks I wanted. The train was only lace and I wanted it lined like the rest of the skirt. Once you begin alterations, you keep the same seamstress so she knows what you want and works with you to get there. They were all very friendly and by the time I was to my fittings, they knew me by name. Always willing to squeeze in an appointment !
I absolutely love Country Bride & Gent! Their staff is the most helpful, and they were very accommodating with appointment times even though I have a very busy work schedule. And the gowns are beautiful!
I will start off by saying that getting my wedding dress here (Bensalem) was a good experience. I walked in with my mom on a whim though it was close to time to get a dress. We browsed around for dresses and one of the consultants came and assisted with no appointment. She asked what we were looking for and pulled out three dresses for me to try that fit the description. The second dress I tried on was the dress! She was very helpful in providing advice and what we might need for alterations and such. After such a good experience I decided to go back with my bridesmaids to get their dresses there. I had set up an appointment and everything. When we all got there we had to look for someone to help us. When we did she stayed in the shadows and did not provide any guidance or assistance. I especially valued to input of someone as all the girls in my party were of different sizes and skin tones. We ended up leaving and getting their dresses at another dress shop in town.
Also, when my dress arrived it was at the West Point branch. We made an appointment for a fitting. When we arrived it was packed and it was prom season. We waited for a couple of minutes (which I didn't mind) until someone came to assist us. When I got in the dress, the consultant made it very clear that we were inconveniencing her time by being brief and not being helpful. It was my mom who was noticing what may need altered while the consultant just stood in the background with her arms crossed and nodding. We decided to take care of the alterations ourselves elsewhere.
I set up an appt nearly 2 months in advance for Wedding Dress Shopping here with my close female relatives, and was shocked how little attention we received. They barely welcomed us, did not ask many questions, and provided little feedback. It was pretty deflating. On top of that, there was very little seating and the place was pretty dingy looking. I was surprised to see this considering the reviews I skimmed on here. I just don't want another bride-to-be to go through what we did here.
This boutique was far from my house and they didn't do a great job to accommodate that with me. The seamstress also made a mistake about 2 months out that made me give up ice cream and potato chips until after the wedding, but in the end, but dress was perfect.
I actually bought my dress at the Country Bride in Bensalem, PA before it closed down and they consolidated into one store in Lansdale. I did not know this was happening when I purchased my dress 6 months before. However, the woman at Country Bride knew exactly what I was looking for when others said I would not be able to find it and would have to settle. There was no problems having the rest of my appointments in Lansdale other than that it was farther away and more inconvenient. The service in the Lansdale store is good and they have a lot of nice dresses for reasonable prices. My seamstress was Ann (I think). She is British and only works Mondays. She was the best. However, alterations were very expensive for little work (taking it in a little and shortening it was about $400). Overall I am satisfied and I do love my dress.
I have been to Country Bride probably 15 times as a bridesmaid and this time as a bride, I have gotten the same excellent service that I have gotten from all other times I've been there. The sales staff is amazing and the dress was delivered when promised and with plenty of time for alterations.
I did love all the alterations. The staff was amazing at getting the idea of what I wanted and delivering on that.
The only reason I gave the less than four stars was because of the bustle. Which is why the quality rating was poor. The woman that did my alterations, was great at the dress and giving me help with the bust...but the bustle...was a bust! She did eye hooks and for a dress that delicate (lace) and someone with as much movement as a bride, the hooks didnt stay. I had my dress re-bustled 4 times and at the end had to put a rubber band in it to hold it all together and up then drop the lace sheath over that mess. It was horrible, I tripped twice on fallen pieces of the bustle that came out and couldn't dance until the rubber band at the end of the reception. Not what I expected! I do plan on contacting them to let them know...but you should know...great dress.,,amazing alterations, great super easy to work with staff...bad bustle. If they're doing fish or eye hooks...ask for something else. No way. I wish I'd have done snaps or ties. I didn't know any better!
I love this store. Has everything you need from your gown to bridesmaids, flower girls, tuxes, even invitations (and will give you discounts when you order your gown and bridesmaids there!). My only complaint is that it is small and can get very crowded. Overall, loved my experience.
I was able to find a beautiful silk satin dress on sale for over 50% off. The ladies working in this shop are just fabulous--they treat you like a princess and are very professional. The tuxedo manager is also very professional and knows his stuff. He helped the guys look awesome in their tuxedos that matched the bridesmaids' dresses perfectly!
I was a bridesmaid in my friends wedding, our dresses came from the Country Bride. I ordered my dress in January, it came in about a month later. I was told to pick up the dress and call back about a month before the wedding for alterations. I called back as instructed one month before the wedding to set up an appointment for alterations and was told they were booked and couldn't help me and the woman on the phone was pretty ignorant like it was my fault for waiting to call. I ended getting stuck going to a dry cleaner for alterations, which turned out horrible. Thanks for nothing!
Everything was on time and as promised at the country brides& gent. I highly recommend them or all our wedding attire! Bridal gown, bridesmaids and groomsmen all had a great experience!
Country Bride was wonderful. The dress I wanted to order was only available in the Bensalem store, so they shipped it to the West Point store so I could try it on before ordering it. I live out of state, so getting to the shop for alterations was a little difficult, but Trisha worked with my schedule every time to accomodate my 2-hour drive. When working on the bustle, we weren't able to get exactly what I had envisioned on the first few tries. Trisha and the other ladies in the store continued coming up with different possibilities until we found exactly what I wanted.
This was the third location that I visited for my wedding dress and compared to the other two places, it was a breathe of fresh air! Everyone was very welcoming and offered their opinion when necessary. But, when offering their opinion, they did it gently, as to not step on anyone's toes or hurt any feelings. I purchased my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dress and even the grandmother of the bride dress at Country Bride (Bensalem location). We also complted all alterations at this location
I wanted a really beautiful chiffon dress but was absolutely not willing to break the bank to do it and I found a lot of great dresses here with totally reasonable prices. I also got my bridesmaids dresses here which were gorgeous and all of the tuxes for the groomsmen. They have really great incentives to getting all of your wedding party's attire here. Just remember that this is not an extremely upscale bridal salon. Don't get me wrong, its very nice, but its a little more hands on when it comes to finding your dress.
I truely got my dream dress. I couldn't have found a more wonderful dress. The prices aren't too bad but it's worth it in the end.
I used country bride for my bridal gown as well as my bridesmaids dresses and flowergirl dress. i thought that i would receive some sort of discount but it ended up not applying so that upset me a little bit bc i would've had my girls look at dresses somewhere a little less expensive. i loved my dress even though it was over my pricepoint (which i didnt know before they had me try it on) but it was beautiful and absolutely perfect for the day! really the only major negative thing i have to say about country bride was the reminder card they sent out when my dress was in. they put the balance that i owed on the card, and it was a post card so anyone who saw my mail could see what i spent on my dress. that really annoyed me. other than that i had a pretty pleasant experience with them and would recommend them again.
Essentially flawless! I got my dress here and guys tuxedo's. The staff helped us with every detail!
Customer service was outstanding! Found my dress after 8 dresses! Never put on another! Love my girls dresses and my mother's dress all were pick under 10 dresses! Colette was outstanding!
My experience with the County Bride was a good one. The sales staff is very helpful and accommodating and their goal is to assist you in finding that perfect dress. I came in set on one dress and came out with something much better.
