I went to Ida's and found the most beautiful dress Ida got herself from the runway in Barcelona, Spain! I have received nothing but compliments on how beautiful my gown was, and many have said it was one of their top 5 favorites of all time(including the alteration shop where they do bridal gowns on a regular basis!).
The service was excellent!!

I found my dress after only trying on 8, my consultant knew what I wanted better than I did, and it was on sale! Very professional and kind staff. They gave me the experience a girl always dreams about.

I had been to a few other places but a friend told me to go to Ida's. I knew the second I walked in there it was different than the other places. They were so friendly and were able to pick out the perfect dress for me! Absolutely loved the entire experience.

I went to Ida’s, because two of my friends had previously bought their bridal gown at Ida’s. The store is extremely well stocked, and it has a very calm and inviting atmosphere. My bridal consultant was Gail, and she is AMAZING!!! Gail is very friendly, she knows bridal, and she does well with staying on budget. Everything that Gail put on me looked good and made me feel beautiful. I left Ida’s with a favorite dress in mind, but I wanted to look around since I have 11 months until my wedding. I went to two other bridal stores which get great reviews online, but they did not compare to the great experience I had at Ida’s. My mom and I then went back to Ida’s to try on my favorite dress which I bought today. Go to Ida’s and ask for Gail!

I am so happy with my experience with Ida's Bridal. I had already purchased a dress that I really wasn't crazy about and had cancelled my appointment with Ida's. But I showed up anyway having seen a dress online that Ida stocked. They let me right in without my original appointment and after I fell in love with the dress they let me wait in the dressing room for an hour while I waited for my Mom to arrive to see it. My fittings were all easy and efficient. Ida even made adjustments to my dress that made it truly my own. I love my dress! I want to wear it now, even after the wedding. Thank you!

I loved the whole process of getting my dress from Ida's! They helped me find the perfect dress within my price range. Ida still does the alterations herself, and everything fit perfectly. She also made my veil, and of course it was perfect!

Ida's Bridal feels like a small town shop in a big city! The staff was amazing and great to work with and they had a plethora of gowns in every style. I tried on my first dress at Ida's and then went to a couple other places in KC and ended right back up at Ida's where I bought the first dress I tried on. Not only did they have the dress I fell in love with, but also a calming atmosphere and experienced staff to go with it. I would recommend Ida's to anyone!

I went to several bridal shops before trying dresses on to get a feel for each shop's collection and the service I received. I chose to try on dresses at Ida's because they were extremely friendly and had a large selection of dresses. Many of the other shops I went to were snooty and persisted that I needed an appointment even though I wasn't even trying on dresses.
When I finally went to try on dresses with my mother, I had a pretty good idea of the dress I wanted, but the associate who was helping us ended up finding a dress I liked even better! I am so thankful for such a wonderful experience and can't wait to get my dress. Thank you Ida's!!

Gail helped narrow down the perfect gown for me- on only the 4th dress I ever tried on. A miracle! The owner Ida did a fantastic job altering my dress to make me look spectacular on my day and helped get that wedding veil to me in time for my big day. I would recommend Ida's to anyone.

I went into Ida's and was amazed! You have the ability to walk around the store and pull dresses that you would like to try on. They have tons of beautiful dresses. The staff was wonderful and Ida is such a sweet person. I found my dream dress at Ida's. I am so happy that we went!! I look forward to the day I get to come back in to do alterations.

From the moment I walked in the door, I knew I was in good hands. Holly helped me pick my perfect dress without my having to try on half the shop. She gave great advice and was encouraging and genuine. The alterations were expertly done by Pam, and everyone involved was helpful, courteous, and professional. I loved my dress. It was such a pleasant experience.

I give Ida's a 5 for overall rating because the service was outstanding. Ida's Bridal had a wide variety of wedding gowns. Their staff were hospitable, I even had an opportunity to meet Ida. Bonnie, my representative, was most accommodating. Additionally, when I returned, another representative assisted me quite graciously on Bonnie's behalf. I came so close to purchasing a dress at Ida's, as I thought I found the perfect one. However, I had a change of heart after realizing the dress I wanted was more for an outdoor wedding (my wedding is indoors and I went for something more formal). I do plan to stay in touch. Ida's sells Pronovias (a designer I love). Although I live out east, Kansas City is my original home and I do hope return to Ida's to look for dresses for future events. Thank you so much, Bonnie. You made my experience at Ida's quite memorable and special while planning for my important day. May all continue to go well with business, I recommend any bride to include Ida's in their wedding gown search.

Ida is so sweet and incredibly helpful/knowledgable. She even made me a custom veil with less than a month to go! There is a huge selection & everyone is super nice and helpful. This was the 2nd of 6 stores where I tried on dresses. I even found the dress I ended up buying at store #5 because of Ida's personalized attention.

It was a last minute idea to go out with my Mother and Sister for my wedding dress. I had set up appointments at three places and Ida's was my second stop. The first stop was not a success since the sales lady told me she thought the dress I loved looked bad on me. At Ida'a I was introduced to Anita my sales lady and told her my price and wedding location. Based on that she brought in many gowns in various styles. Once I tried on each gown she showed me how to wear it then she left the room to leave my family and I alone to look at the dress ourselves. The overall experience at Ida's was fantastic. I would recommend any bride to schedule an appointment with them when looking for the perfect gown.

I bought my dress at ida's but am not living in the KC area. I had been visiting a friend and went to look at dresses while my friend was at work. The staff at ida's was helpful and let me try on dresses even without an appointment (it was a Tuesday during the day). I tried on a lot and they were very patient and helped me find THE DRESS. The great service didn't stop there. I had a total of three days in which I could do a fitting near the wedding (about one month out) since I had to fly to KC to do the fitting. They got the dress altered in two days and it fit like a glove. They carry great designers and have patient and hard working staff. Thanks for helping me find the dress.

I am so glad that I went to Ida's. From the moment that my appointment started, the staff at Ida's made me feel like I was the only person in the store. Their customer service absolutely sets them apart from any other bridal boutique. My consultant understood exactly what I wanted, but still brought me back different options to ensure that I was on the right track. She did a great job of staying within my budget and even let me look through the racks. Ida is also a fantastic seamstress. I had the neckline of my dress made into a sweetheart and it turned out great. Lastly, I got my custom veil from Ida's (made by Ida) and it was absolutely beautiful. If you want the true bride experience, go to Ida's!

I am getting married Dec 8th, 2012 and I finally found my perfect dress within my budget and I couldnt be happier! I had shopped several dress stores in the kansas city area before going to Ida's bridal shop on Metcalf. Holly my dress assiciate helped me find the one! :) I told her what I was looking for and what I was thinking and she pulled about 7 gowns and they were all amazing, it was like she had read my mind. The gowns were all gorgous and she kept the price under my budget as I had asked. And at Ida's they do free alterations on certain designers so when I picked my dress I was estatic to learn it was free alterations! Holly also talked to her superviser and I also recieved a free $150 head piece because my fiancee is active duty Military. I was beyond thrilled! Holly was so friendly and helpful and I cant thank her enough. I purchased my dress the same day and recieved a thank you card in the mail from Holly the next week. I cant wait till my dress arrives! I am sooooo excited! Thank you Ida & Holly!!!
