After a long day of dress shopping and no luck, my bridesmaids talked me into going to European Bridal which I thought was out of my price range. I walked in and was immediately greeted by JoAnn. She asked me my price range, grabbed dresses that were in my price range and took me to try them on. The first dress I tried on at this store was exactly what I was looking for - classing, lace, elegant, great quality!!! I did not expect to find exactly what I was looking for and in my price range at this store. It was a great experience. Also, when I was concerned about timing of the dress getting in, they were so kind and understanding and worked there magic to have it arrive on its estimated shipping date. Great team at European Bridal. Highly recommend if you're looking for great quality and customer service. Thank you! Only downside, my bridesmaids could not take pictures of the dress I really loved because they do not allow pictures unless you purchase. It was a little awkward especially considering my mom was so disappointed she couldn't be there with me that day for personal reasons. She still hasn't seen the dress. The other stores I went to were taking pictures for me in dresses with my bridesmaids. That helped build up my excitement and get my mom's opinion.
The experience and service I received at European Bridal was unmatched by any of the other 3 boutiques I visited in the Reading Bridal District. We mixed up the appointment time and were an hour late, but they insisted we still come in when I called to apologize. They were able to still fit me in for an appointment and were happy to do it. The women there were so friendly when my Matron of Honor and I walked in. The boutique is gorgeous with dresses sparkling all over the walls. I was a very budget-conscious Bride and my consultant, Katie Blatt, was completely sensitive to that. She was very careful not to pull something out of my price range and when I found a few on the wall myself that I loved, she was very honest and upfront about their prices being higher immediately. Katie was very calm and nice and helped me narrow my dresses to two that I really liked. I ended up loving one out of my preferred price range and she worked with the manager to help make it for affordable for me. I wasn't able to commit to the dress that day because I wanted my sister to see it the next day who was flying in from NYC to help me shop. European Bridal isn't open on Sundays, but the Assistant Manager, Mary Aylward Lyon, offered to come in on her day off and open up the store just me and my sister, my Maid of Honor. It was so incredibly sweet and thoughtful. She could tell I loved the dress and it meant a lot to me to have my sister be a part of my decision making. My sister loved it too when she saw it and we made a third appointment for the following weekend when my Mother, Aunt, and Mother-in-law could come into town to see it. Katie helped me into the dress again and let me stay in the dress for over an hour while I made my decision with my family. European Bridal isn't a pushy boutique. They care so much more about their brides and making them happy and feeling special than they do selling gowns. I had one-on-one attention every time and I never felt pressured or rushed at any of my THREE appointments. The managers were able to work with me on the final price and I was able to afford the dress of my dreams! My dress came in after about 5 months and I'm so excited to pick it up and try on MY actual dress this week! I can't say enough good things about European Bridal and all their staff. I highly suggest every bride-to-be make this boutique their first stop on the search for their perfect wedding gown!
This was my first and last stop for dress shopping! European Bridal was very accommodating and prices are reasonable. Meegan was an awesome help and made me and my mom both feel very comfortable. She listened to my thoughts/concerns/needs and showed me dresses accordingly. I am o happy I found my dress here!
I enjoyed my time at European Bridal. They have GORGEOUS gowns and a very personal feel within the store. There are not an overwhelming about of gowns to look at. Quality over quantity type feelings, so all depends on what you like. I enjoy the more personal stores which usually comes at a cost. The smaller stores tend to cost a few hundred dollars more then the big stores because they are offering that 1 on 1 and intimate feeling. I ended up buying my gown here because my mom trusted them and knew if something went wrong with the way the gown came in they would take care of it and assure I was a happy customer :) The one con was you cant take pictures in the dresses you are trying on and I was a firm believer you need to see how it makes you look in a photo :)
From start to finish the service at EB was superb! My consultant Katie was very professional and helpful! I never felt pressured to try on particular gowns/styles or take the plunge and buy a gown. It was an easy shopping experience and EB had a great selection for a boutique store. Katie was so patient with me on my second and third visits to try on the dress of my dreams. All other staff were welcoming and warm. Future brides, definitely make sure that you check out EB. Amazing experience with excellent service where I said yes to the dress!
I planned on visiting two bridal shops while in Cincinnati looking for my dress but ended up only stopping at European Bridal because that's where I found "the one". I read a lot of reviews online before making any appointments and it just seemed that European Bridal would have what I was looking for. They have a wonderful selection of beautiful lace dresses and designers. My consultant, JoAnn, was straight to the point and my kind of gal. I explained to her my dos and do nots and our budget and I loved almost every dress she brought back to me. I ended up only trying on 6 dresses and purchasing the second one I tried. Some of the dresses she brought me were a bit above my price range but it was worth it.
I went to several dress shops around the city before going to European Bridal. I honestly didn't think they would carry the style of dress I was looking for in their store. I worked with JoAnn and told her my style and "vision" for my Florida wedding. She pulled 2 perfect dresses in my budget that I loved. She let me take my time and didn't pressure me at all. She was wonderful to work with and I can't wait to wear my dress!
I walked into European Bridal a little defeated from my search for the perfect dress. I was a walk-in client and was greeted right away by bridal consultant, Shannon. I explained to Shannon the kind of dress I envisioned myself in, how that specific type of dress was not working out for me, and what types were looking good on me. Shannon pulled a couple dresses and the first one I tried on was GORGEOUS. Very unlike me, but so flattering and the dress had elements of my original vision. The dress was stunning, but a little out of my price range. Shannon quickly went back and pulled the "one". The dress was very similar to the dress I had just tried on, but in my price range. I would have never picked out this dress on my own, but she knew exactly what would be flattering to my body shape WITH some elements (lace) from my original vision. She told me that was the one and that I would be back. She was right! All the staff at European Bridal was very inviting and professional. I highly recommend their services. They were accepting of my price range and found something that I could not have picked without their expertise! Thank you for a great experience!
I walked into European Bridal with my bridal party on a whim to preview dresses. I was warmly welcomed by Katie Blatt, as if I had an appointment, and she found the most perfect dress I had been looking everywhere for! She was very knowledgeable, and made my time there so very special! She found accessories that would coordinate with the dress. Also, she recommended that I attend the trunk show for the designer two weeks later so I could make the changes I could make to truly personalize the dress. All of the consultants are so friendly and welcoming, and they are truly knowledgeable about every dress! The bridal salon had big beautiful mirrors and you are truly made to feel like a special bride! I cannot thank European Bridal enough for helping me find my dream dress!
After a LONG and EXHAUSTING search for wedding dresses in Columbus, we decided to venture to the Bridal District in Cincinnati and found European Bridal. THANK GOODNESS we did. Everyone in the store was so personable and helpful. Joanne was our consultant and she seriously knows her stuff! I FINALLY felt like someone understood what I wanted, and didn't try to talk me into something I didn't like. When we found "the dress" asked about certain alterations (adding buttons, removing lace), and it was a quick "no problem, we can do that for you". I couldn't have asked for anything more! I would truly recommend this store to anyone :)
I shopped several stores before stumbling into European bridal without an appointment! I was greated when I walked in the door and was not treated unwelcomed because I did not have an appointment, unlike the other stores I had gone to. The lady that I worked with was patient, not pushy and did not make me feel obligated to buy anything. She helped me try on a million dresses and a handful of the same dresses possibly 5 times each until I was comfortable with my final purchase, I believe her name was Betty. I went back 3 times before I finally decided on my dress. The staff was pleasant every time, the dresses were all of great quality and they had a variety of all price ranges/budgets available. I highly recommmend European bridal.
On the day I decided to shop for dresses in the Reading Bridal District, I had 4 different appointments set up. We had a nice experience in the first shop, but the second shop was quite overwhelming with not-so-great customer service. When we walked into European Bridal (our third appointment), it was like a breath of fresh air. The shop was so charming, and all of the consultants immediately greeted us and made us feel so welcome. Our personal consultant who helped us was Betty Ocean. She was absolutely amazing to work with, and gave us excellent customer service. She was not only interested in helping me find the perfect dress, but she also wanted to know about ME personally and the family members that accompanied me (she didn't mind that I had 6 ladies with me either!). Betty listened to the things I liked and didn't like about the dresses and she hand-picked excellent choices for me off the racks. I immediately found 3 dresses that I LOVED when I tried them on. There was one particular dress that I kept putting back on because I loved it so much, and Betty was extremely patient with me as I made my decision. Of course, it ended up being "the dress" in the end! After we left, my family members kept saying, "THAT was a great experience," and "that consultant was fabulous!" Several of the other ladies talked to me inside the shop as well and they were all SO genuine and nice. I would highly recommend European Bridal!
Spontaneous visit but found my gown! Came in off the cuff after I saw a gown online I thought might be carried there. The gown was there! The manager and consultant were immediately and incredibly helpful, attentive and patient. I ended up going with a different gown than I thought I'd wanted...a dress even better (in my opinion) and am thrilled. My experience at European bridal was relaxed, fun, and most of all I felt supported there. Thank you.
I had a great experience with European Bridal! I found European to have a lot more inventory than other stores to accommodate what I was looking for. My consultant, Katie, was easy to work with and really listened to what I did or did not like about the dresses I tried on. I love my dress from European and can't wait until it comes in!
I am a bride trying to plan my wedding from out-of-town. I happened to be in the area looking at other vendors for my wedding when I decided to just pop into a few bridal boutiques and take a look at some dresses. I really did not have much of a vision of what I wanted on my day and was dreading going in to try on dresses. As a plus sized bride, I was terrified of going and trying on dress after dress that were many sizes too small. After going to a couple of other bridal boutiques in the area, I convinced myself to give it one more shot that day. I am so very glad I did! The store is beautifully decorated and the quality of the dresses was unlike any I had seen that day. Joann was quick to greet me and made me feel very comfortable. Every dress she pulled for me matched the description I had given her on how I envisioned my wedding day. She offered to have a designer custom create a dress with elements I liked from other dresses. Finally, I had slipped into a dress that was just perfect and matched everything that I wanted in a dress! Joann was so supportive and helpful! She pulled veils, offered design options, and was my unexpected blessing that day. She really made my fears disappear about trying on wedding dresses.
I highly recommend European Bridal to any bride wanting a personal experience with a very supportive staff. If you want to have your vision come to life and are looking for a place that listens to what your ideas are and go above and beyond, this is it!
I worked with Shirley from European Bridal and she was fantastic! Such a sweet lady, so willing to help and cater to what I wanted. I had an image in my head of what I wanted my wedding gown to look like and I couldn't find it anywhere. Shirley and I discovered that if we put two dresses together from the same designer and added a few things here and there we could get exactly what I wanted. Shirley and European Bridal worked with the designer and myself back and forth to draw up sketches and a custom design for my dress!! I absolutely love my dress and very much appreciate all the extra work they did to help me get exactly what I wanted. Now I have a custom design and a dress I love. I highly recommend European Bridal and a special thank you to Shirley and JoAnne. Thank you!! -Alyssa
European Bridal was the second dress shop that I visited when looking for my wedding gown. Claudia chose dresses that she thought would fit my style. It only took two dresses to find the right one. It was amazing and I knew as soon as I tried it on that it was perfect for me. Claudia let me walk around the store in it to make sure it was the right one. She was so helpful and friendly, taking pictures of my family and me once I had made the decision. I purchased my veil from European Bridal as well...everything about this boutique makes you feel special and important. It was truly a happy experience.
I went in with one dress in mind. Gina was wonderful and had me trying a few other styles to make sure that the dress was just perfect. She was knowledgable and professional. In the end I got the dress of my dreams. Staff was friendly and personable. The store has specialty dresses by known designers so the prices were very reasonable. I would recommend European Bridal to anyone looking for a dress of their dreams. They were able to rush order my dress so that I have time to make alterations. Thanks again Gina!
I was absolutely delighted with my experience at European Bridal. My sister and I are getting married within 6 months of each other so I only came in to see the dress she had picked out the day before and we ended up leaving with dresses for both of us. Not only were they so helpful but they made our experience even more magical when they served us champagne (Moet) and delicious cookies!
They were the only bridal shop that didn't try to shove sparkles and glitter down my throat--and thank God! I told them the style and look I was going for and delivered exactly what I wanted--and it was so fun too!
Very knowledgeable and kind staff. Would recommend.
