Amazing experience

Reviewed on 8/26/2014 Anya A

My experience at a&be was wonderful and one I would wish for every future bride. The staff were welcoming, helpful, and personable. I never felt pushed to try on a dress or to not give my honest opinion. I was treated as an individual and felt that the staff truly cared about... Read More finding me the perfect dress (which I did!). The environment is also amazing. The store is open and inviting, while giving individual space (dressing room, full length mirror, pedestal, and seating) for each person to try on gowns. While their selection of dresses may be smaller than some, they have picked a wide range of exquisite dresses.

Cute Store & Excellent Service!

I just went wedding dress shopping for their soft opening today and had the best experience. It was my first time shopping for a wedding dress and Jordan made the experience so easy going. They had a beautiful selection of dresses. Jordan offered suggestions which I appreciated... Read More since I had no clue what kind of dress I was looking for. I didn't leave with a dress but I did have some heavy contenders that I might have to come back for. The store itself is a cute boutique. I can't wait to go back for the grand opening and possibly pick up a headpiece for my wedding. :) Great place to shop!

I visited three different bridal shops and a&be' was definitely my best experience! Emily was my consultant and she was SUCH a pleasure to work with! You could tell she had so much experience and knew exactly which dresses to have me try on. The shop is also so beautiful and... Read More there was plenty of space to for my guests to sit, the fitting rooms are very spacious, and I felt relaxed and taken care of the whole time. Emily was so attentive and I ended up purchasing the first dress she put me in! All of the gowns are gorgeous so it was tough to decide but my heart was set on the first gown (which Emily knew would happen) and I could not be happier! I would absolutely recommend a&be'!

If only there were more stars to give!!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this shop. Kristin Brown was my stylist & she was a dream to work with, incredibly kind, thoughtful, and WONDERFUL! I ordered my dress & we had to rush it to get it in time for my destination... Read More wedding & Kristin was so great in dealing with me (as i was a bit panicked it wouldn't come in time) My dress came nearly 2 weeks early & I am in love. All of the dresses in this shop are STUNNING! I am so glad i chose a&bé & so happy with my Rue de Seine gown!! I went to a few bridal shops before I came to aandbe, and nothing felt right, I was definitely looking for a different and more bohemian style-but as soon as i walked in the doors-I knew i was in the right place...the gowns in this shop get all the heart eyes <3 <3 <3 Amazing! Thank You Kristin, & thank you a&bé for making one of my biggest decisions SO EASY! My mom and I will remember this day forever- & for that I cannot thank you enough!

I can't recommend a&be, and especially Elizabeth, highly enough! They have a beautiful and diverse (in terms of style AND price) selection of dresses and the vibe is very welcoming. I went with my mom once, found a couple favorites, visited other stores, and then ended up coming... Read More back a second time because I knew my dress was there. They generously let me try on (carefully) one of my favorite dresses in the color I wanted, even though they were sending it back to the designer to resell. (It was the only one in that color in the store.) I ended up choosing a new, completely different dress, which surprised everyone, including myself. I appreciated how Elizabeth really helped me make up my mind. Without her guidance (which was NEVER pushy at all), I probably would have just never made up my mind. She also got me 10% off my dress because there was a trunk show for my designer a few days later! They also seemed very transparent about everything, like there were no hidden costs or policies. Highly recommended!

Such a huge fan of this adorable place! It was the first place we went to and it was by far the best. Elizabeth was an amazing stylist - she was so honest and made us all feel included and comfortable. She helped me in and out of dresses, which was so helpful - I didn't realize...

Olivia at A&be' is absolutely amazing! If you are coming here you should ask for her you will not be disappointed. She was amazing to work with and I wouldn't have been able to find my dream dress without her! While I picked out a couple (lets be honest way more than a couple)... Read More dresses to try on after trying on most of them ( liking a lot just not in love), Olivia asked if I minded if she grabbed one she thinks I might like and of course it turned out to be my dress!!! :) Couldn't be happier! Thank you Olivia, you are the BEST!

This wasn't on my list of places and it should have been! I live 5 hours from Minneapolis in a small town. A few weeks ago was my second time down to find the perfect dress. I went to a few bridal and consignment shops all over the cities. I had a budget that I didn't think... Read More would fit with A&Be. Saturday at about 4pm my friends and I walked into a&be. Wow. The dresses are gorgeous!!! This place stood out from all the others. I didn't have an appointment and was told they didn't have time to do a bridal appointment but we were allowed to look at the dresses. I turned around to walk out figuring there was no point looking if we couldn't try them on and figured the dresses were out of my budget. One of my bridesmaids convinced me to take a look. Within a few minutes of browsing a dress stood out, I pulled it out and thought, "Wow, what a pretty dress" then moved on. I turn around to see my bridesmaid holding the dress, she says, "Wow, what a pretty dress." Thinking we were ready to head out I go to the bathroom. When I walk out my maid of honor says, "They said you could try one dress" The one that had caught my eye was waiting for me in the dressing room-And it was within my budget! Well needless to say it was the one. I wouldn't say I got the normal a&be experience....I came in late, on a Saturday, with no appointment and bought a dress within 20 minutes of walking in the store. I couldn't be happier. The boutique is gorgeous, amazing...I wish I had had an appointment!! Olivia has been great to work with so far. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment here! The store is great and the dresses are truly unique!

This place is a game changer! Do yourself a favor, and make an appointment here. I had the most amazing, fun, and (most importantly) successful experience at a&be. Emily helped me at my appointment (ask for her, ladies!) and she really heard me, and helped me find a winner. She... Read More is so down to earth, and genuine. In addition to there amazing people, they have beautiful dresses. Their gowns are elegant, yet unique. I absolutely LOVE my gown. Also, the environment is just lovely.

And even if you don't find THE dress there, you are probably going to learn something during the process, and you will have a great time doing it.

I had the wonderful experience of searching for the perfect dress for my sister (with the consultant Emily) and loved that experience so much that I scheduled an appointment there as well! I also had Emily to help me find the best shape and material to feel comfortable in on my... Read More big day! I went in knowing nothing about wedding dresses and she was there to help in every way.

She was honest and helpful and had asked all the right questions. She could read the expressions on my face when seeing myself in each dress.

Every bride should go here! I love a&be! The space is huge and GORGEOUS. I went on a Saturday, which is their busiest day. The space is large enough, where you almost never see any other brides, and you have your own private area for you and your friends/family. My consultant,... Read More Kate, was super helpful as well. I tried a few other bridal shops, and nothing compares to a&be. At the other shops, I never found a dress I was totally in love with, and I was worried I wouldn't find one that gave me that amazing feeling (I definitely found some I liked at other places, but wasn't totally sold). But when I started trying on a&be's dresses, I knew I would find one there. Their dresses are totally my style.

This was the 4th Bridal Shop I visited and even though I had a great experience at all of them, A&E still stood out! They were very welcoming from the moment I walked in the door and, Emily, my stylist was phenomenal. She immediately put me at ease and was fun to be around but... Read More she also knows her dresses. The first one she picked out for me ended up being "the dress". If you want an amazing shopping experience and to be able to select from beautiful unique small designer gowns, I honestly don't think there is a better bridal shop!
