I went to so many dress shops my head was spinning. When I walked into the Dresser I immediatley knew I was in the right place. They brought me options that were exactly what I asked for and were very mindful of my budget. They were nothing but professional and I couldnt be more happy with my experience.

Oh, the dresser. What a wonderful place you are - not only was I able to find my dream dress at this boutique in just ONE visit, I was also able to find the perfect accessory (sash) and the perfect veil here.
Prior to coming to the dresser, I had been to a couple other places to try on dresses. I had tried on at least 20 other dresses before giving us. Everything I tried on everywhere else was "nice" and "pretty" but none of them spoke to me. I decided then it was time to make an appointment with a boutique kind of store and I was hopeful that I'd find my dress here - and I did! The minute I arrived with my mom and friends, our bridal consultant Caitlin tried her best to pull together dresses that were in my budget.. I started to try them on, one by one, and sure enough, when I put on my 4th dress, I instantly KNEW it was my dress. I said yes to a beautiful Maggie Sottero Kendra dress in Alabaster and I couldn't be happier. I decided to purchase the dress right then and there and put down my deposit. The bridal consultant also gave me a veil for free and she said I could pick any veil - I ended up choosing a beautiful floor length veil :)
A few months later, they called to inform me that my dress had arrived :) Sure enough, I went in and the dress was in immaculate condition and I couldn't be happier.
Overall, I had a great buying experience and would recommend this place to any brides looking to make a purchase of their wedding gown.

Beautiful shop with wide selection of dresses. The staff was very nice and helpful. They asked the right questions, listed and brought dresses that I asked for and made suggestions as well based on my preferences. Found my dress within an hour and it was one of the ones the sales associate suggested! The only thing I didn't like was the room where you look at yourself in the dress - with multiple brides and one large mirror it's a bit difficult.

I loved my visit to the Dresser. The shop is small but they have an amazing selection, something for every style. They let me browse on my own for a while, then one of the girls came to help me narrow down my options and find other dresses that fit my style. There was absolutely no pressure, and we never felt rushed. We were able to take our time and try on as many dresses as we wanted to, enjoying each one. As a result of all of this, I ended up finding my dress on the first visit. I could not be more thrilled. The price was amazing to boot! They really help to work within your budget and they never tried to push more expensive dresses. I had a fantastic experience and would recommend this shop to anyone.

I couldn't' have been happier with my experience at The Dresser. Everyone who works there is so nice, friendly and knowledgable and they helped me find my dream dress. My mom also purchased her mother of the bride dress from The Dresser and was so impressed at their customer service and how well they treated us. I refer anyone I know who is engaged to The Dresser to get their dress. They truly made my wedding dress experience perfect!

The gals at the Dresser are so helpful. After trying several other stores, I was glad to go to a place where the girls let me take my time & make a decision without hovering over me. I found my dress here and had a smooth process through ordering, fitting, and pressing the dress! The only negative part of my experience was that they girls didn't call me when my dress arrived. I finally called them 5 weeks before the wedding, and they then told me they had the dress. If you go with the Dresser, just keep checking on the status of your dress. :)

Everything went smoothly with my wedding dress; it was about $200 cheaper at the Dresser than I had seen at other bridal shops so that was great! My bridesmaid dresses were also $30 cheaper than I saw at other stores. The consultants are helpful and nice.

The only thing missing was the champagne. But everything else was wonderful. The personel were very attentive. I found the dress of my dreams. The sales rep asked me a lot of questions so that she could get an idea of what I wanted. She helped me into about 3 dresses and asked me more questions to make sure we were going the right direction. We stuck to my price range and found the dress of my dreams!

Loved my dress. I only shopped here and found the dress I was looking for. Perhaps I lucked out, but everything was perfect. Great assistance, decent price.

My entire experience at The Dresser was wonderful. Their selection of dresses was great. They did all alterations to my dress in house and did an excellent job. My dress turned out better than I could ever imagine.

This is an amazing little dress shop. Not as large as others but they have a great selection for the size of the store. Most dresses are affordable and there is something in every style and price range. The staff is awesome- super nice and really want to find you something you will love. Check this place out!

From the day i went shopping for my wedding gown and set foot in the dresser, I could not have been more pleased with their dress selection and service. I was fortunate because I only wanted to try on the 5 dresses i had in mind. And they were patient as my mother and i went back and fourth on our opinions. I never once felt rushed. When it was time to bring back the MOH and Mother in Law and grandma to help make a decision, the consultants were helpful and patient while we all voiced our opinions. I never once felt pressured to make a decision or even rushed with my dress decision. Once i purchased my dress, all my fittings and alterations went smoothly and the whole staff was a delight to work with.

I purchased my wedding, reception, and bridal party gowns at The Dresser. The service was wonderful. My consultant's name was Toni and she was great! She assisted in all dress consultations and made everyone feel beautiful. Marianne the owner also takes care of alterations and she was a delight. Alterations was very affordable and timely. Marianne was able to have both my dresses done within a few days. The salon is beautiful and if you are looking to purchase a designer gown this is definitely the place to go.
