The staff at Diane's was very nice and really helpful. I never once felt rushed or just another customer. They really took the time to figure out what I was looking for.

I had a wonderful experience at Diane's. I drove with my mother on the 4 hour trip to Jasper, Alabama and it was well worth it. I already been to two other places much closer to home, but the selection and service me and my mother received at Diane's was just wonderful. My consultant Many was so helpful and sweet. I was not rushed to make a decision and I was able to retry dresses on. My mother loved the fact she could just sit back, relax, and watch me try on dresses unlike the previous bridal shops we had been to. I also felt the prices were very reasonable. I was able to get a gorgeous Justin Alexander right at the top of my budget. I am also getting my bridesmaid dresses from here!

Excellent service posted 6/24/2013

The ladies here are very helpful and helped me find my perfect dress. they made it fun and relaxed without being pushy at all or like they were trying to upsell me. They shipped me my dress to California no problem and it arrived in great condition

First off I need to say that I LOVED my dress and was very happy that I chose it. BUT the day I went for my very first dress shopping experience was a disappointment. I had my mom and brother there for the special occasion and we were on time for the appointment. We chose 6 dresses for me to try and it took a little while to weed through the inventory because all of the dresses are smashed together in a tiny room. When I started trying on dresses I didn't waste time in the ones I knew I didn't like. By the time I got into the third dress, the saleslady who was helping me said, "We need to speed this up honey... you're running out of time before my next appointment." Although I had maybe been there about 45 minutes and was never told that there was a time limit. I found THE DRESS and I bought it that day with the veil, but I spent the following months feeling like my special moment was ruined because I felt rushed to make a choice. When my dress came in I had to call the store to see if it was there... I never heard from them. I thought scheduling with the seamstress would be a nightmare because of her extremely limited hours of availability, but she was the most pleasant part of my wedding dress buying experience. If the other salesperson had the positive and sweet attitude of the seamstress, this review would have been 5 stars. Something to think about if you envision your wedding dress shopping to be a big and meaningful part of the wedding planning experience. I would suggest to go somewhere else.

Unique Bridal Selections and Helpful Staff posted 5/23/2014 (modified 5/24/2014)

I was drawn to Diane's Formal Affair when shopping for my wedding dress because of the unique selection of beautiful gowns. Every dress I tried on was amazing on detail and quality, and it was a tough choice deciding on "the one." But the staff gave lots of helpful feedback and sizing options. I especially loved the in-shop seamstress!

Great Selection posted 5/3/2014 (modified 5/4/2014)

Diane's has a great selection of dresses for all body types. I was specifically looking for Watters dresses, and the consultants were great in assisting me. I had picked my gown in less than 30 minutes, and they helped in making it a relatively pain free process. It is a bit of a drive from Birmingham, and I felt like the customer service gradually wasn't as great as the day I purchased the dress when I went back for later fittings and to purchase accessories.

LOVED Dianes! posted 4/6/2013

I drove from Tuscaloosa to Jasper 3 times for my wedding dress and would recommend anyone to go there! They were beyond friendly and helpful! The first dress I tried on ended up being THE dress and if it wasn't for them I wouldn't have even tried it on. They went and pulled it from the back and said It was a mixture of the other dresses I liked but I didn't think I would like it and ended up loving it. They make my dress shopping EASY!

Hidden Gem posted 3/24/2013

I read reviews on Diane's before visiting the shop, and they were very mixed. I had nothing but the best service! I live in Birmingham so it took me about 45 minutes to get there and it was well worth the drive. The staff was really friendly and they were able to work within my budget. Their seamstress was also wonderful. She was able to add straps to my dress which gave it an elegant look. I would recommend Diane's to any of my friends and family.

Amazing Experience posted 3/16/2013

I recently purchased my wedding dress from Diane's Formal Affair and I had a great experience. My consultant Susan was very honest and reassured me on my choice when my mom had a different idea of what I should wear. She made sure that I remembered that it was my day. They were also wonderful when it came to my one year old niece, they let her run and play and never once acted inconvenienced by her presence. Overall this shopping trip was much better than a previous visit to Davids Bridal.

Don't waste your time posted 9/22/2012

I was horrified by the awful service I received here. Sure, you can get your dress at a cheaper cost here, but you certainly sacrifice customer service. I had issues with the receptionist lying, the bridal assistant lying, and the incompetence of the seamstress. I would never recommend anyone go here. I was treated horribly.

Diane's has a great selection for the bride who does not have a huge budget and who wants a dress that does not look like a cheap dress. The associates are pleasant and work with you to find the dress of your dream!

The Best! posted 6/26/2012

Diane's Formal Affair is by far the best dress shop in the state. The women who work there are so friendly, so non-judgemental, and are obviously there to please you. The seamstress is unbelievable, as well. You want your wedding dress to fit you perfectly, and she makes sure that it does that. Diane's has great prices, especially for the quality of product that they provide.

I tried on many many dresses and Diane's had the best selection and is where I found my dress. I recommended it to another bride and she found her dress there too. The staff is wonderful to work with. The alterations were fabulous.

Hands down the easiest appointment I had while planning my wedding. I simply told my consultant what I was looking for, she picked a dress for me while I chose several to try. Then put the dress the consultant chose for me on first and it was an instant winner. I honestly didn't need to try anymore dresses on, of course I did though. Diane's is a place to go as soon as you get engaged; they are ready and willing to help every step of the way.
