I bought my dress in October, La Reine was the second store I visited. The first store I went to, I picked dresses out and they kept looking at their watches too see when I'd be done. As a bride, it just took the wind out of my celebratory sails. At La Reine's, I knew instantly that I would be taken care of. I walked in to smiles and a congratulations. I then was taken to a corner with just my consultant and I where we discussed what I really wanted. She told me to change into a robe and she would be right back. She walked in carrying 5 dresses. It was so nice not to have to look, it's very confusing. I bought the first dress I tried on, she nailed it!!! They really listen to you. I recommend La Reine to any bride looking to be well taken care of, in a very non intrusive way.

I had such a great experience finding a wedding dress. I worked with Judy and she made me comfortable right from the start. I described to her what I was looking for and she immediately brought that in. I quickly narrowed down my search and found a dress within an hour.
They were even great when I worried that my belt and veil would not match. They took the time to show me everything again!
I have already recommended them to a few people!

My trip to La Reine was lovely! It was my first trip to a bridal salon to try on dresses and I had no idea what to expect. The staff was extremely helpful and helped me narrow down what I was looking for based on my personality and wedding feel before we even got to the actual dresses. I ended up trying on only 4 or 5 dresses and fell in love with the 2nd dress I tried on. It was perfect and I don't know if I would have been able to pick it out or find it on my own! The whole process was very easy and stress free and the shop is very lovely and pleasant inside.
The seamstress, Elena, who has a shop downstairs is phenomenal as well, if you get your dress at La Reine and use her shop they send it right downstairs and make it all very easy for you!

I am pleased to have purchased my dress from La Reine. The staff was accommodating and helpful. They know their business and share their experience instead of blindly following direction. The dress I chose was not the one I had envisioned for myself, but like a good hairdresser who stops you from getting bangs, it was presented to me as something that would flatter me and was similar to others I had been trying but with a little something extra. I am serious, I would never have selected this dress for myself if I had only seen a photo. Thank you so much La Reine, you found me a dress that is not only a reflection of me but a reflection of what I envision for my wedding day.
Judy is now retired but my visit with her was like working with a favorite aunt or family friend. She was sweet, funny, and honest. She let me say what I thought but also pushed back a little when I described what I was looking for by explaining how certain features of a dress can't exist in tandem with others if I want to be able to be comfortable. She also noticed immediately when the tears came as I caught sight of "my" dress on for the first time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Dema (I apologize if I spelled that wrong!) helped me on my second visit, had to bring Mom with me to see my dream dress, and when I said that I would want to remove the crinoline, she immediately showed me how the dress would change and become unflattering when I walked down the aisle (quel horror!). I recognized what she was saying immediately and am so grateful she didn't just follow my lead in the interest of making a sale. Dema put me in and out of that dress over and over and let me practice walking in it, always adjusting the train whenever I stood still so that it looked perfect. She even snapped the picture of me with my mother, which we are really grateful to her for even thinking of!
Equally important, let's talk $$$.
The dress that I purchased from La Reine (a stunning Augusta Jones) was a full $900 cheaper than the price quoted at a well known upscale shop nearer to me in Connecticut. La Reine is in the business of finding you your wedding dress and not scamming you for the price of a glass of warm champagne. Give me La Reine and it's real people over some bridal shop where they charge me an additional thousand dollars for the honor of buying my dress with them. Thank you, La Reine.

I loved my experience at La Reine so much that I actually started working there part time so I could give others the same! The staff is amazing and the selection of dresses is unmatched by any other boutique I had been to. They know how to really make you feel like a queen, Hence the name! I suggest to all Brides to Be out there to come see what La Reine is all about! I cannot wait to wear my Dream Dress!!
