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 had a wonderful experience at a&be finding my wedding dress. I felt pampered while I was there, and I did not feel pressured to make a decision right away. I felt beautiful on my wedding day, and I am so happy I got my dress at a&be!

We had the best experience here! I had a dress picked out from an earlier appointment when I walked in to a&be and didn't think I would find anything that could beat it here. Kristin was so patient with our large group, she listened to my budget and then took me around the store... Read More to show me some dresses. I am a person who has a hard time saying no to people but she made it super easy to be clear on what styles I did and didn’t like. She also pulled a wide range of styles which was how I found my dream dress. It was one that I had overlooked on the rack but when I put it on I knew it was the one! The best part about it is how unique it is which can be said about every dress in this store! Kristin then took the time to find the perfect accessories for my dress to complete the look. Lastly, she went over in detail the sizing of the dress and helped me decide which size to go with when I was between two different sizes. I felt so comfortable leaving that store knowing that she had thought of everything from the dresses length to the cost. She is amazing!! Thank you a&be for finding me the perfect dress to get married in!

I made my bridal appointment during the week and I had the whole store almost entirely to myself. There was one other girl there but she was looking for dresses completely different than I was. The dressing rooms were also very far apart. The staff was wonderfully helpful. The... Read More dresses were stunning! I found the dress and I never imagined something so beautiful.

What an absolutely incredible experience wedding dress shopping was at a&bé!! I worked with Elizabeth who took every detail into consideration when pulling dresses. Her background as a seamstress was impressive and she was friendly, genuine and honest. She made the crew I... Read More brought with me feel welcome and comfortable.

I came to a&bé with the intention of simply starting my dress search. I wanted to try on dresses and get a feel for what I liked. However, when I stepped into their gorgeous shop, I had the feeling my dress was meant to come from a&bé. I ended up saying "Yes!" within an hour and... Read More a half of my appointment. My consultant, Emily, was absolutely amazing! She listened to EXACTLY what I wanted, but also had me try out other dresses. She encouraged me tell her how I felt in different dresses and pulled others based on what I felt and thought. I can't stress enough how truly amazing she is at what she does. It was impossible to find a dress I didn't care for because she knew my vision. She even took my venue into consideration while searching for the perfect dress. The service I received was not only incredible, but genuine. She broke out the champagne glasses to celebrate and we ended with a hug! Check them out. I will forever be grateful for this experience and thankful to be an a&bé bride!
