, I tried on so many beautiful dresses before choosing my dress. Jen was so kind and patient with me. I ended up going back to the store many times to look at bridesmaid dresses before ordering, and the girls were so friendly and helpful each time. All our dresses came in very quickly, and we all loved them. One of my bridesmaids also found out she was pregnant after ordering her dress, and the staff had no problem getting extra fabric ordered for her. I called and stopped in the store many times during my wedding planning process and each time I was so happy with how helpful and friendly each staff member was! I am so glad we purchased our dresses from An Elegant Affair, I would 100% recommend the store!!

use I had a great experience.
The consultants were helpful without being pushy. They were good at communicating with me about the dresses I ordered. Before I chose my dress they even called to let me know that one of my favorites was being discontinued soon. They also have an in-house seamstress so you can have everything done all in one place. Their prices seemed pretty typical to me, I only went to one other dress store though so I don't have a lot to compare it to. They definitely didn't seem to be outrageous.
If you live in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area, An Elegant Affair is definitely worth a look!

I loved my experience at An Elegant Affair. When I went to pick out my dress all of the staff members were very attentive. They seem genuinely happy for me and willing to help me with whatever I needed. They gave honest, but not harsh opinions....
My dress was beautiful and exactly what I pictured I would be wearing. After every fitting, I was able to come back the next week and it would be ready for me. The seamstress was excellent and super quick! If you have the money, get a dress from An Elegant Affair.
