Great place to shop! posted 10/30/2013

From start to finish, the staff was great! I felt taken care of and knew that I was getting the best advice and suggestions available. They also did my alterations on kind of short notice, and they turned out great!

We went here for my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses and they were so helpful. They helped me find the perfect shade of light pink for the dresses and did a great job with ordering everything on time. Their shop is stunning inside with all the new demo that just happened this year. It is easy to look through the dresses and the consultants were really nice and friendly every time I went in to try on my gown. I could not have been happier with my experience with The Bridal Connection!

Not for person on a Budget posted 7/8/2014

I loved all the dresses I tried on. However they were all over my budget. I did get my dress from here, however it was actually a bridesmaids dress, but I LOVED this dress.

Fantastic Service! posted 7/7/2014

We looked at a few bridal stores, but Bridal Connection felt different from the beginning. Lots of space and great selection of gowns to try on and the staff treated us like we were the only people in the store. We didn't feel rushed and felt like they listened to what I was looking for. Once we had chosen the gown, the alterations department went above and beyond to make sure the ruching and fit was just right. They even stayed later to make alterations so we wouldn't have to drive back another night. Would recommend Bridal Connection to any future brides!

Wonderful buying experience! posted 6/11/2014

The whole experience from walking in and being greeted by a sign with my name on it, and then two super friendly professional women helped me. The showroom with the dresses was very clean and easy to shop compared to the other shops In Des Moines. Stevie was super sweet and helped me pick out 5-6 dresses that all were gorgeous and flattering. Lara gave a few suggestions as well and it led me to my Bridal gown! I am so excited and it couldn't be anymore perfect! The service was unbelievable and matched by an amazing gown by Justin Alexander! Well done Bridal connection!

Dream Dress posted 11/22/2013 (modified 11/23/2013)

I loved my experience and my dress turned out perfect. They created a heart out of my Grandfather's ties and sewed it into my dress and it was perfect. Very helpful and encouraging.

Dream Dress posted 10/8/2013

I found my dream dress almost a year before my actual wedding (long engagement). They were so great about letting me come in anytime to try on the dress and their alteration woman is fantastic!! They worked magic on my dress to transform it from a gorgeous dress to one that was a perfect fit for my body and personality!

Alterations are outrageous! posted 7/2/2013

They had my dream dress in stock, but I was disappointed in the cost & quality of my alterations. If I would have got my wedding dress altered at the boutique my bridesmaids bought their dresses I could have saved a lot!

Brides Across America posted 6/17/2013

Lara and her staff were so kind to me when I came in last year for the Brides Across America event. They were instrumental in picking out the right dress for me. The dress made me special and even designed by the owner herself. The staff was great in choosing headpieces that matched my dress.

Be cautious posted 5/27/2013

I got my dresses and bridesmaids dresses here. I took my dress in to see what needed to be done for alterations. They took my dress before I could agree to anything then told me I had to pay. They are overpriced anyway for their dresses and charge another arm and leg on top for any alterations. Every time I went in there, there was always someone else having an issue with them which really worried me at the beginning of the process (should've seen that as a red flag!). I also waited a minimum of 45 minutes for each of my 3 SCHEDULED fittings. The dresses turned out beautiful, thank goodness, but I would never suggest people waste their money or time there.

deteriorating service. posted 5/17/2013

I bought my wedding gown and belt over 8 months before my wedding. When finding a dress, we got right in and had great service. When we returned to pick them up a few weeks later, we waited for over half an hour for anyone to even talk to us. Then we were told that the belt haden't arrived yet and that a garment bag was NOT included. Now it is less than 2 monthes before the wedding, and I didn't hear about my belt until I left a nasty message on the manager's voice mail. Only to get a call back that said it's still not available for pick up, when I was promised it would be shipped to me. At this point, I would have rather paid more for the same dress somewhere else.

The Dress posted 5/4/2013

I pulled a few gown that I liked and I thought they were ok. When my consultant started pulling gowns I got discouraged because she wasn't sticking very close to my wish list. Right when I was about to call it quits she pulled my dress. Good save :)

Great!! posted 5/3/2013

I was so impressed with The Bridal Connection! They made me feel special and gave me direct one-on-one attention - I felt like I was a bride on Say Yes to the Dress! I was worried finding a dress was going to be a challenge, since I had very specific criteria. But my consultant found me exactly what I was looking for - it was modest, beautiful, and exactly the style and material that I wanted. I was very happy with my experience at Bridal Connection and would recommend it to anyone!

My Dream Gown! posted 3/28/2013 (modified 3/28/2013)

I went to the Bridal Connection during a Justin Alexander trunk show, thinking I was just going in to start looking with my wedding being over a year away. The second dress I put on....I just started crying. It was the moment I always dreamed of, but never thought would happen like that. My consultant was wonderful, especially considering how needy I was! I love my dress, it is the most amazing dress I have ever put on in my life and I know my fiance is going to love it. My sister had also got her dress from this store and had the same positive experience. I can't wait for next year to put the dress on again!

My sister got married this past fall, and used a different high end store in West Glenn. It was an absolute nightmare! The service was horrible, the alterations were unprofessional, the service was terrible, they treated everyone in the bridal party horribly, so all I knew was that I was not going to use this so called great high class store when I was going to purchase my wedding gown. I found this lovely boutique just by chance online, and it is the best thing to happen to me. Absolutely everyone at the Bridal Connection that I have worked with go out of their way to make sure that you are pleased with their service and are happy with everything. Up front, they warn you that when you purchase the dress and are sticking to a certain budget, alterations will add up and it is important to keep that I'm mind. I did a lot of alterations to my dress, and added a whole new train to my dress, and the seamstress was amazing. It was like having my own personal designing team between her and the owner of the store. The quality was amazing. They have also made sure that every single detail, even down to the comfort of my shoes are taken care of. They also made sure that everyone in the bridal party are happy. I could not be anymore pleased and would recommend this to absolutely everyone who wants a wonderful experience on their special day!
