My experience with VIP was amazing and fun, from start to finish. I wanted a pretty elaborate wedding dress and they were able to find me exactly what I wanted. I had so much fun talking to the owners and employees there when I came in. We were on a first name basis by the time I was done with their services. None of the employees take themselves too seriously, which made the whole experience so much more relaxing in comparison to the awkward experiences I had with employees at many of the appointments I had at the fancier, more expensive salons downtown (I just felt like I was being looked down upon at most of those places). All the ladies at VIP are very down to earth and funny. I got all my bridesmaids dresses from VIP as well. My girls looked gorgeous in each of their unique and individually different dresses, and the seamstress did an amazing job fitting them. My mother-in-law- who is also a seamstress and has sewn many bridal gowns and costumes herself- purchased her gown there as well, and also chose to have it altered there. She was very impressed by the speed and quality in which her alterations were completed. Some of my friends who got their wedding dresses downtown said they were charged $500 for a hem, alone. I paid $450, in total, for all of my bridal alterations at VIP. This may sound like a lot to some people, but it seemed about average to me; especially considering everything I had to have done to my dress...so I didn't think it was that bad, and my dress fit PERFECTLY all day long. The fit, to me, is just as important as the dress itself, and it is worth every penny. If its a beautiful dress, but looks like crap on the body because it was not fitted properly, then what's the point in wearing it? I've brought other dresses of mine back to VIP to have them fitted there, because I love the quality of the work their seamstress does.

I had a great experience with VIP Occasions. The staff is very nice and not pushy in any way. My dress fit perfectly.

All the women at VIP Occasions were absolutely amazing! Finding the dress with them was great, they have so many dress options and are patient if you need to try on more than a few. All of my dress fittings went very well, everyone was easy to work with and made you feel like your dress would be perfect on your special day. Every time I called to ask questions or inquire on an order the women were very helpful and delightful to talk to. We also ordered all the bridesmaids dresses from VIP Occasions and all the bridesmaids appreciated the way the women worked with them. So, happy we choose VIP Occasions for out special day!

I first went in to VIP several years ago just out of curiosity to pre-shop for a friend of mine who was getting married. I was immediately greeted by friendly faces and felt welcome. I absolutely knew I would have to go back to go dress shopping when it came time for my wedding! (btw my friend did end up purchasing her bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses from VIP, as well as many of my other friends since) Anyhow, I did go back 8 years later and purchased my amazing wedding gown, 10 stunning bridesmaid dresses for my beautiful girls, 2 adorable flower girl dresses, 13 tuxes, and my Mom's dress! She also looked radiant! All of the employees there were so patient and helpful as they worked with our large and mostly out-of-town wedding party! I didn't even shop anywhere else! I would recommend this place over and over again! Wonderful people, wonderful selection, wonderful seamstress'! Simply love them! Lastly, I truly appreciated the personal experience and touches given by both owners and each employee! They made it such an easy and fun experience!

I've always wondered what I'd look like the day of my wedding... And NATALIE AND NICOLE ( the owners) made my dreams come true. My dress was perfect - the girls there were genuine... And I felt like a movie star. They obviously love what they do and it shows. Thank you VIP!!!

The salesperson went out of her way to accommodate me with my dress. They helped out with shoes and accessories. They even lent me a pair of shoes in the store to use when trying on the dresses. All the staff was extremely professional and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure all my needs were met. I was so satisfied I also purchased my bridesmaids gowns and tuxedos there too. I felt overall they had the best price around.

VIP Occasions is filled with smiling faces and a very helpful staff. Dress shopping can be very intense but they eased the stress and I found my dress. They have a grand selection of bridesmaid, flower girl and mother dresses as well. We were fortunate to find everything we needed at VIP. Thank you Natalie and Nicole!

The staff was great to work with to help me find my perfect dress and also all of our bridesmaid dresses. Alterations was a reasonable price, nothing over the top. Would recommend them any day!

VIP was everything that I was looking for in a bridal boutique that the bigger places just can’t give you. The girls at the shop really give you that personal touch. When I first went to try on dresses they listened to the kinds of styles that I liked and we went from there. They never pressured me to buy and you never felt rushed. Once I did buy my dress the service was still top notch. They are a family owned business that really cares about their brides. I had my dress altered there as did one of my bridesmaids and both of our dresses fit like a glove after the first alteration. I can’t say enough good things about these girls because they are all just wonderful! They have a large selection of designers and are very easy to work with. You can’t go wrong.

VIP is great! From my first fitting to the time that i picked up my dress they were perfect. I was even late for my first appointment and they didn't even say a word about my tardiness and treated me with professionalism and courtesy. I would highly recommend any one looking for a dress to make this there first stop. Trust me you'll be back.

I liked that appointments were required so that the consultants could spend time with you and talk about what you envisioned. Also they were very accommodating with my bridesmaid who needed several alterations due to pregnancy.
