I simply cannot imagine my wedding had I not gone to Nicole Bridal. Nicole found my dream ballgown within ten minutes of my entering the store, and she was incredibly considerate of my budget needs. My subsequent visits the store were equally amazing. Nicole and Marina greated me each time as if we were long time friends. Nicole has an incredible eye for alterations and my dress fit me like it was custom made. My veil was gorgeous, and Nicole even sowed in my crystal hair comb so it became a part of the veil.
Marina was with me on the day of my wedding, and the day would not have been the same without her. From the minute she arrived that morning until she left after the ceremony, Marina was there to keep me calm and centered, and my husband, parents and I were so greatful to have her there.
Nicole Bridal, Nicole, and Marina are truly the best in the area and the industry.
I can not sing enough praises for Nicole Bridal & Formal. I have actually purchased two dresses from there, and each experience has been wonderful. Nicole and Marina work with you to find exactly what dress you are looking for. Their expert tailoring helps customize any dress to your specific liking, and they fit the dress to your body perfectly! Working with Nicole and Marina is like working with close family - every time I entered their bridal salon, I truly felt special and welcomed. I would never even imagine purchasing a wedding dress from any other place!
I had the privilege of ordering my wedding gown from Nicole Bridal & Formal, and it was one of the best decisions that I made! Nicole and Marina were so warm and inviting, they made me feel like a queen every single time i stepped foot in their door. The quality of service was also impeccable. The alterations and changes made to my gown, were top notch. They also hand made my veil, which was stunning. Thank you to the Nicole Bridal & Formal team for making my wedding unforgettable. I will recommend you to any bride-to-be that I come across. Love, Darcy
Marina and Nicole at Nicole Bridal & Formal were such an absolute pleasure to work with. I was drawn to them after finding that my heart was set on a Claire Pettibone dress that I found online and learning that they are one of the few places within my vicinity (NJ area) that carries CP. They were both so sweet and helpful and I would definitely recommend them if you are in the market for a wedding dress!
Nicole Bridal is THE place to go if you are looking for impeccable service, beautiful and unique gowns, and a friendly atmosphere. Marina and Nicole have an incredible way of making the whole wedding gown experience fun, not stressful. Gowns are simply gorgeous - check this place out!!
I am so happy I found Nicole Bridal. After going to numerous bridal shops that made me feel terrible and ugly, I found Nicole Bridal. I definitely wish that had been my first stop. Nicole and Marina were amazing to work with. Nicole knew what I would look good in right away and the dresses she pulled were absolutely gorgeous. Amazing detail and quality. The tailoring process was easy and quick. Overall, they offer a warm, supportive atmosphere with amazing and very unique dresses. Highly recommended.
Nicole Bridal is the best bridal shop, they give you personalized attention and service and they are so helpful throughout the entire process. The alterations were perfect and they have a large selection of bridal jewelry and accessories as well. I got so many compliments on my gown and the bracelet that I purchased for the wedding day. Definitely stop by to see what they have, you will not be disappointed!
Nicole and Marina made me feel comfortable right from the start! I loved how Nicole lead me into their bridal gown room and let me choose several dresses to try on. I loved the third dress and we bought it! They were fabulous to work with from start to finish - nothing was every too much trouble and they were instant to get back to us when we had any questions. And we did have Marina there at the wedding - she was great - holding my bouquet, fixing my dress, making sure we got all of the best shots. I would use them again and again! We also got bridesmaids dresses there - it was really easy and my one bridesmaid lives across the country!!
Nicole and Marina are the most amazing people you will meet when you are going to find your dream dress. They welcome you with open arms and listen to what your style is to find that perfect gown. The gown I chose was a St. Pucci design and people back at home recognized its exquisite quality. This shop and its owners will meet every expectation you are looking for when shopping for your wedding dress!
I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Nicole and Marina at Nicole Bridal. I originally went to Nicole because they carried a designer whose dress I really wanted to try on for my wedding. When I got there and tried on the dress, Marina informed us that this designer was having an upcoming trunk show, and she suggested we come back in a few weeks during the trunk show so that we could see more of the collection and get 10% off the dress if we bought it. We went back and I ended up falling in love with another dress by the same designer, which I purchased for my wedding day. Nicole and Marina were so kind and accommodating to me and my large family, and they let me come in and try on my dress for my friends and family whenever I wanted. Nicole also did the alterations on my dress and worked on it literally until the day before my wedding. The dress came out perfectly, and I cannot thank Nicole and Marina enough for all of their help and especially their kindness.
Nicole Bridal treats you as if you area member of the family. They reassure you on your decisions and give you insight when you ask. I was kept up to date on accessory trunks shows that might go with my dress. They made sure that any change I made would turn out perfectly. I can't tell you how comfortable they made me feel. They are wonderful people.
Absolutely loved it here. Excellent service, warm people, and a gorgeous gown!! I would recommend Nicole's to anyone and everyone. Working with Marina and Nicole made the whole experience so easy and fun and my gown was all anyone could talk about at my wedding!
This review is overdue, but my wedding in Aug '12 was so special and I have Marina and Nicole to thank for a big part of that! I felt so incredible in my gorgeous gown and I couldn't have wished for a better bridal salon to work with.
My sister also used Nicole Bridal and Formal for her wedding gown in Sept '10, so when I got engaged, they were my first stop! I found a beautiful Rina Di Montella gown, but what was more special than just the dress, was the way they treat you. They become like family and they make you feel like your gown is the only gown they are working on.
I would recommend them to all of the brides in Philadelphia, NJ, Delaware.
Thank you Marina and Nicole!!
Nicole Bridal was utterly fantastic! I found a picture of a dress online and was unable to find the name. I communicated with Marina via email. She found the dress I had found online and made a special order to get it in the store for me to try on. Marina answered emails day and night, and was so kind and helpful in person! The exact thing a nervous bride needs. When my dress arrived it was absolutely beautiful but needed some alterations which is where Nicole came in. Her alterations were beautiful, her bustle easy to work with, and again so friendly! Nicole Bridal did everything I could have asked for and more, worked with me with everything I needed, and even carried my gown to the car when I picked it up. What an amazing family business, everyone should go here for their wedding wear needs!
The staff at Nicole Bridal are simply amazing at making you look spectacular on your wedding day. Their dress selection is hand picked and has some of the most sophisticated couture dresses I've seen. The whole process from picking out my dress to all the fittings went beyond my expectations. They go the extra mile to make you feel special. Its a wonderful place and one of the highlights of my wedding experience. I highly recommend Nicole Bridal.
Nicole Bridal carried a dress designer that we couldn't find anywhere else. It was so lovely working with them to get the dress that I wanted. They special ordered it in and were fantastic during the fitting and purchasing process.
Just amazing!!! First of all they carried the designer I was looking for so I was willing to travel to go see what they had. When I called to see if they had the dress I wanted in stock they said that it was in the traveling trunk show and that it was going to be the weekend right before the day I could go in. I worked on the weekends so was not able to go during the actual show. However they offered to hold the dress for me to see. And gave me the trunk show rate when that is the dress I purchased. Nicole was just amazing. They were wonderful to work with and made me feel like I was the only bride that they had. They were always accommodating and helpful. I was so happy to have had them be who I worked with! If you are looking for a special experience go to Nicole's. You will not be sorry!!!!
I originally went to Nicole Bridal because they are the only store in my area that carries the designer I wanted (Claire Pettibone.) I was nervous that the experience would be uncomfortable, as I am on the bigger side and was worried that I'd be met with scorn told that I couldn't fit into the sample sizes. How wrong I was! The staff could not have been more welcoming, and they immediately put me at ease. They had sample dresses that, while not my exact size, I could put on and get a general idea of how the dress would look when made for my measurements.
After the dress arrived it needed a few adjustments, and Nicole did a beautiful job tailoring the dress to fit me perfectly. She is an incredibly talented seamstress!
Nicole Bridal & Formal was the perfect place to find my wedding dress. I highly recommend it!
I went to 10 different bridal salons all over the Philadelphia area looking for a wedding dress, and Nicole's stood out, WAY above the rest. The dresses were the prettiest out of all of the Salons, and had the best prices. Also, Marina Albert and her mother Giuseppina were excellent to work with. They did an amazing job the with fitting. They were also very pleasant, kind and EXTREMELY attentive. I found many of the other bridal shops to be extremely rude and untrustworthy. I'm so glad I got my dress at Nicole's. Marina and Giuseppina are very good at what they do.
Thank you for this review!! This truly means so much to Nicole and I.
All the best,
I give Nicole’s Bridal a 5 Star rating all around! If you are looking for your dream dress, that will set you apart from other Brides out there, then this is your shop! This is not Davids, and it is pricey, but honestly you can’t expect designers who use such high quality fabrics, and accents to not be pricey, and the detail and attention put into these gorgeous gowns is well worth the price. The dresses are kept clean and there is a large selection as well as sales ladies who have an eye for their stock and what you might fall in love with. It is well worth a trip to check them out since nothing compares to the way that you will feel in your perfect gown on your wedding day. We found this little gem of a shop because of a trunk show for St Pucchi (who I love) and they were the closest to Harrisburg that sold them. My husband and I picked my dress first and the rest was built around it, including the venue. I ended up with a St. Pucchi dress and I had women wanting to dance with me just so they could see my gown more closely and now not only do I have beautiful pictures, but also a beautiful heirloom piece! I don’t regret a cent that I put into it. Nicole and Marina are wonderful and will work with you however you need, they are absolute sweethearts! Nicole is the most amazing seamstress as well! They put a ceiling on their alterations which I think is an excellent move and brought me back to have my alterations done there even though I live 2 hours away. I had the zipper pulled out and replaced with a corset, and not once did Nicole need to pin me, but she eyed me up and did the alterations beautifully and prefectly, even adding the crinoline to my gown so I didn’t have a separate slip, all for a very reasonable cost for all the work she did! (The corset was extra) However, I would trust her with any alterations. I have known several seamstresses and she was the first to be that good. I felt like a princess every time I came, and I made a four hour trip round trip several times just to come to this shop. I was always given a private room you don’t have to leave, where whomever I brought with me was welcome to come, and attention paid to me always made it seem like I was the only Bride there (and many times I wasn’t). This is a high quality shop with a great family running it. I used to be in the Bridal business myself, and this is a top notch shop with gorgeous gowns if you are the type of Bride who is looking for unique, classy, chic and/or sophisticated styles.
