I highly recommend TBA. I went to several salons and they all tried to push me into dresses that weren't the right ones or they didn't have a great selection. At TBA the sales consultant was super sweet, professional and comforting. They have a phenomenal selection of dresses. I found my perfect dress there and try worked with me on price since I could pay up front. After buying the dress they continued to treat me with the same respect as before I purchased. The final result with my dress was breathtaking.
They truly carry nothing but the best. All gowns are amazingly beautiful and detailed. Make an appointment in advance and be prepared to spend some dough.
Shopping for "the dress" was not as easy of a task as I had hoped for when I started my search, that all changed when I went to Traditions. The environment was a complete different world compared to the other shops that I had tried. The staff at Traditions made this experience so special for me, Martha was able to help me find exactly what I was looking for. Their commitment to making my experience special did not stop after I purchased my dress, every single appointment I came to for alterations was equally as enjoyable as that fun day of trying on dresses. As far as cost is concerned the gowns at Traditions are worth every penny based on quality, I could not be more satisfied with mine I love every single detail about it. Maria helped to alter the dress to look exactly how I wanted it to she is truly an artist! Thank you to Traditions for helping me to have the best wedding dress possible!
Today I purchased my dress from TBA. This review is primarily concerning the customer service and initial experience since I have not received my dress yet or had any alterations done at this time. My MOH bought her dress at TBA and had all of her alterations there and had only good reviews.
I immediately felt welcome and comfortable when I walked in the door. After being greeted my mom and I took a seat and we overheard the owner suggesting to Kristen to take my appointment since the other sales girl was still busy and she didn't want us to wait. Kristen was so friendly and genuine and took the time to listen to what I wanted and what styles had worked for me before. She let me pick out a few dresses and then picked out a few she thought would work for me. I really had a great experience with her and the other ladies in the shop and the other brides and moms. I felt like I was hanging out with friends and that made the experience that much more enjoyable.
They had a great selection of dresses. I never felt rushed or pressured into a dress or with my time. The shop is classy and modern yet you don't feel like you can't walk around and look at dresses.
I can't wait for my dress to come and to have the alterations so it fits me perfectly. I wish I had made TBA the first place I went to look.
I had such a great experience with my bridal consultant, Allison at Traditions By Anna. I found a classic and beautiful wedding dress.
Traditions by Anna is what you think of when you think "bridal salon". The entire experience is definitely what a bride dreams wedding dress shopping should be, down to the champagne and elegant décor. The dresses are definitely pricey, but you get what you pay for. I had an image of the dress I wanted in my head and Traditions was the only store in the Raleigh area that I was able to find a dress that style. The staff was friendly and always sending hand written notes. If you want that bridal experience, not to mention quality and a knowledgeable staff, Traditions is the place to go.
Bought my dress at TBA and I am so thankful for the great staff there. Emily, one of the consultants, was so very kind and helpful. She helped me find my dress, bridesmaids dresses, and veil there. Never had to worry about my dress and they were great to work with. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a dress or bridesmaids dresses in the Triangle area.
My experience at TBA was such a joy. I had seen the shop open in North Hills when I was a little girl with the big bay windows filled with pretty dresses and always dreamed I would find my wedding dress there.
The staff walking in was incredibly welcoming and kind making sure my mother and I felt relaxed and comfortable.
The location is beautiful and had a wonderful old sophisticated style about it that just did something to make you feel special.
The dresses were well kept and the staff knowledgeable on dress details (I wanted to know all about lace).
The dresses are a little bit marked up from other stores I compared prices to of the same dresses in Virginia, South Carolina, etc. but the cost of coming and going would add up to just purchasing the same dress at TBA. That and I know the TBA staff is not only incredibly kind, but organized, timely, and professional whereas I do not know about the others.
I do not live in NC anymore, and so I had to do a lot of things from afar. I would recommend you get sized for any dresses you are interested of the day of your appointment so that you don't find yourself in a town without a wedding shop like me and have to wait until you can get to a major city to be sized.
TBA was great with helping to get my dress in when I was in town so that I could take it home with me and with shipping my veil to my seamstress in TX. They always called to let me know when things were in stock and when they were shipping to me.
Two final things to note:
1. They did not keep me on budget so watch for that! I was not so sure because of the price but my mother bought it for me and called me to tell me!
2. Their bustiers to try on the dresses with are phenomenal! I plan to go back and purchase one for myself when I am back in town. Great quality soft breathable lace and so comfortable.
Definitely the dress of my dreams
My dress was beautiful and Martha was beyond helpful. The alterations and dress pressing added another $500 to my dress expenses, but everything turned out beautifully.
I had a wonderful experience at Traditions by Anna. I went in during one of their sample sales and found my beautiful dress for over half off! The sample was in near perfect condition and only required a few buttons be fixed. Needless to say I was thrilled!
I bought my wedding dress here and they were wonderful to work with. They helped in selecting my dress and then getting it just perfect for my big day. I would highly recommend them!
To begin---everytime I walked into Traditions by Anna I felt as though I was with family. This was extremely important as I live out of state from family, therefore was not able to have them come to my appointments. The staff was always friendly, sweet and provided an environment that wedding dress shopping should be. Excellent service, tailoring and communication regarding every detail of my dress. I had found my dress in NJ, but then found the TBA carried it. Their selection of classic dresses is breathtaking. I HIGHLY recommend TBA to find your dream wedding dress.
Thank you so much, Katie! We can't wait to see pictures, and hear all about the wedding!
The women at Traditions were incredibly helpful and helped me in finding my beyond perfect wedding dress. Every fitting, alteration appointment, etc. were all wonderful and made me feel so fortunate for having found them!
Thank you so much, Anna! We hope you had a wonderful wedding! We can't wait to hear all about it, and see pictures!
AMAZING!! This is the best word to describe Traditions by Anna. They took the time and made me feel special when I went to pick out my dress. They spent a lot of time with me and let me try on several dresses and gave me their honest opinions. Even after I bought the dress, they let me come in and show the store model to my friends and when I took it to another lady to do my alterations and didn't use the one they recommended, they didn't act rude towards me at all. By far the most professional bridal place I went to in the Triangle and the BEST dresses by far.
I ordered my bridesmaids' dresses at TBA as well. The Lula Kate dresses were AMAZING!! There was a small miscommunication about if one of my bridesmaids should order a materity dress or not (she was only going to be 5 months pregnant at the wedding) and when it came in it didn't fit. They handled the situation WONDERFULLY. They didn't say, "Sorry we can't help you" or "You can buy another one, but there is nothing else we can do." Instead, Anna called me herself and we talked about it. My bridesmaid went in the next day and within 2 weeks, she had a new dress! They are AMAZING!!
The old saying, "You get what you paid for" is SO TRUE!! The dresses aren't cheap, but it is SO WORTH IT. I won't lie, I went over my budget on my dress but I would do it again in a heart beat. The service at TBA is great, their dresses are in style, and their customer service is out of this world! If you go, ask to work with MARTHA, she is amazing. Anyone that lives within 2 hours of the Triangle should go to TBA to get their dress, their bridesmaids' dresses, and their mother of the brides dress!
Heather, you were a wonderful bride to work with! We can't wait to hear all about your wedding, and see the pictures!
I got my dress from Traditions back in January and it was smooth sailing ever since then! They always kept me posted and were flexible with my schedule and their alterations lady is a true master. Great selection at fairly reasonable prices.
loved my dress!!!! it was perfect for someone that likes there own ideas, not someone persuaded by others. had to reschedule a fitting once, but it was ready and perfect for the big day.
I loved working with Anna and all of the wonderful ladies at Traditions. I got the dress of my dreams, and everything was perfect!
Jane at Traditions was a real pleasure to work with. Living out of state, she handled everything seamlessly and I was very happy with her service. My alterations were perfect and all of the staff at Traditions were committed to making sure that I was taken care of.
This was the first (and only) bridal salon I ended up visiting. The dress I selected was the 2nd dress I tried on and was an off-the-rack sample dress by Rivini. Bias-cut, slim beaded straps, sleek off-white satin silk and just perfect. The alterations were done by Maria in house and everything turned out beautifully. It was more than I had planned to spend on a dress for a second wedding, but the look in my husband's eyes made it 100% worth it.
I had such a wonderful time at Traditions! The staff was very helpful, always courteous, and they did beautiful work. They helped me find the gown that was right for me, and they did alterations to create a unique and timeless look! I would recommend Traditions to anyone who can afford it.
