I purchased my wedding gown, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride dresses at Ana's. They did my fitting as well. Everything came out great and my dress was awesome. I received many compliments and was extremely happy!

I went into this shop with no appt just to check out some dresses and wound up purchasing my gown. It was beautiful but the bustle was really difficult and came undone all night, so maybe have them make sure its secure.

Loved working with Ana and the Ana’s Bridal Boutique staff for my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and MOB dress! I had originally planned on visiting Ana’s boutique to try on dresses over the summer (about a year prior to my wedding), but actually came across their booth at... Read More a local bridal expo first. They were set up and had gowns for brides-to-be to try on & purchase. Being that I was so far in advance of my wedding, I hadn’t gone to the expo with any intention of trying wedding dresses on, but since it was early on in the day, they weren’t too busy yet and I figured “what the heck?.” Ana and her staff (mostly Patricia) spent about an hour with my mom and I, just letting me try on dress after dress. There were no complaints from anyone that I wasn’t making any decisions…they just continued to let me look. I never once felt rushed our pressured. Ana eventually asked me what I was looking for in a dress, and I told her three things that would be ideal. But also said I was flexible, and if she thought something might suit me better, I would be willing to try. She brought me a dress that was lovely, but just not “the one.” Then Ana looked at me and exclaimed “I’ve got it!” and then brought me another dress. As she handed it to me, she said “this is going to be your dress.” I thought to myself, “yeah…ok” but Ana was totally right. She nailed it! The dress was perfect and so was the price. I didn’t have my boutique experience, but I wouldn’t change how special and different my “say yes to the dress” moment was. I had such a great experience with Ana and Patricia that I ordered my bridesmaid dresses through Ana’s, and my mom ended up ordering her dress from them, as well. All orders were correct and dresses arrived in a timely manner. Other reviews may indicate issues of timeliness with regards to orders, but if you do it well in advance and don’t wait until the last minute, there is no problem. That’s common sense. Ana’s stored my dress (free of charge) until my May 2017 wedding, and Ana completed the alterations, as well. I know some other reviews have complained about the price of alterations and how they need to be paid in cash, but I felt that the cost was fair. If you ask, Ana will also give you an estimate of what to expect for alterations ahead of time. The cash payment part is very clearly stated in their contract, as well. My mom was so pleased with her experience that she decided to keep her dress stored at Ana’s and have her do the alterations, as well. Being that my mom lives almost 4 hours away, she could only really travel up to RI on the weekends, and Ana accommodated my mom’s schedule (alterations appts are typically only on Mondays & Tuesdays). Ana didn’t have to do that, but she always went above and beyond to work with our schedules, and it was greatly appreciated. Ana’s alteration work was impeccable, and I had full confidence in her suggestions. I had no problem letting her do what she does best…wedding dresses. I really can’t wrap my head around the negative reviews surrounding Ana’s…I just don’t get it. Ana and Patricia were nothing but wonderful throughout the whole process, and every time my mom and I were in the boutique, they both made a point to come say hello and chat with us. I have nothing but positive things to say about my whole experience with Ana’s, and I recommend them wholeheartedly. Thank you, Ana, for being part of my special day and for making my wedding dress experience a truly special one.

NOT EVEN WORTHY OF ONE STAR. Ana's Bridal is the absolute worst. Never in my life have I experienced such poor customer service. Ana and her employees were some of the rudest people I have ever come into contact with. I'm honestly shocked this place has been able to stay... Read More open. This was a very unprofessional environment. The dress alternations were also embarrassing. One bridesmaids dress didn't fit at all (and she paid a lot to have it altered by Ana). It was so bad that I was pinning and sewing her dress on the day of the wedding. Also, two of the girls clasps broke off just from simply bending over right before the wedding. I couldn't believe it. Do yourself a favor and AVOID this place. Weddings are stressful enough.

BEWARE!!!! Initially we had a good experience. We arrived for a scheduled appointment with Ana and she immediately had us pull some dresses but also picked one of her own selections ( out of the range of our suggested budget). My daughter did fall in love with the dress and it... Read More was a retired dress which meant we had to buy THAT one. Okay, I asked Ana how much it would cost to alter and her response was "Not that much". We purchased the dress and everyone was happy. My daughter's weight did NOT fluctuate more than 5 pounds between trying the dress on and alterations. She had the dress bustled ( Ana knew what the dress looked like when she sold her the dress. It had to be taken in slightly, again Ana knew this would be necessary). My daughter added a sewn in bra which many brides do and isn't a big deal. Sooooooo, imagine our surprise when we picked up the dress and were told the alterations would be $500.00 payable in CASH !!!! We also had to pay to have the dress steamed and buy a bag - REALLY ??????? at least throw that in, if the alterations are so high !!! OK, so we paid the ransom on the dress and we will NEVER be back again!!!! FYI wedding was in May 2016

I have been a customer of Ana’s for several years, having been a bridesmaid in several weddings that used Ana’s as well. I was always happy with the selection of dresses and the alterations I had done as a bridesmaid, so it was kind of a no brainer to go here for my bridal gown!... Read More I believe Ana is very knowledgeable and she is a great seamstress. My dress ended up fitting perfectly and was more than I could have imagined. However, getting there was a bit of a struggle! I won't go into the details of each instance, but basically, you have to pay very close attention to any charges that they write down. Often they make errors or do not honor discounts or specials that were previously promised or agreed upon. I choose to give them the benefit of the doubt on this and attribute it to them just being busy, and not trying to purposefully take you, but they should really try to pay more attention to these details. The biggest issue that I had with Ana’s happened the day before my wedding. I planned to wear my godmother’s headpiece, but it needed to be reworked into something more modern and complimentary to my dress. I brought the headpiece to my first fitting and discussed with Ana what she could do with it, and was happy with the plan. The next time I went in, she had started working on it, but it wasn’t complete, and every time I went after that, nothing more was done with the headpiece, even at my final fitting when I had wanted to try on the dress with all of my accessories. She promised it would be done by Friday (the day before the wedding) and I would pick it up with my dress that day. I was told my dress would be steamed and ready to be picked up any time after noon on Friday, so I told them I would be there at 2:00, along with two of my bridesmaids who also needed their dresses steamed. We arrive at 2:00 and none of dresses had been steamed! We waited for over an hour while they steamed the three dresses, when I had to be at my rehearsal at 4:00! We had to book it to the venue for the rehearsal and barely made it on time. In all the rush, I didn’t even think to ask about the headpiece, and didn’t notice until I hung my dress up that night that the headpiece was nowhere to be found. My mom went to Ana’s as soon as they opened the next morning (the wedding day) and Ana couldn’t find the headpiece. After about a half hour of searching, she finally found it, but it had not been touched since my final fitting and was unfinished. My mom had no choice but to take it and we worked with my hairdresser make it look finished and to incorporate it as best we could. It turned out ok enough to wear, but was not what I had imagined or what Ana and I had discussed. I think Ana’s could be great, but it’s my suspicion that they are taking on more business than they can handle, and the quality of the service they can offer is suffering as a result. I hope they can improve in this area because they could be such a great bridal salon.

I shopped at Ana's for my bridesmaid dresses in early October. I think they have a great selection to choose from which is definitely a plus. However, what I was not satisfied with is they told me the dresses would be in 5 months before my wedding. When that month came and went... Read More I never heard from them. I had to make the call myself and check in every month for the next 3 months. At this point my wedding was almost a month away and every time I called someone told me a different time that they would be in. Certainly makes a bride to be nervous and worried. I did not like the fact I couldn't trust them with the bridesmaid dress order considering no one really knew where or when they would arrive. Just keep that in mind for if you shop there, be sure to give yourself PLENTY of time.

I scheduled an appointment at Ana's Bridal to try two dresses I found on the internet. After trying several different dresses, I chose two dresses from Maggie Sottero and Sophia Tolli. The girls working at the Ana's Bridal store patiently help me find the type of dress I was... Read More looking for, and I loved that they didn't push me to buy the most expensive one. On my second appointment I decided for a light, amazing dress from Maggie Sottero and order it on size 8. But when I arrived home I decided I wanted size 6, otherwise would be too large for me. I called them and they changed the order immediately. After 3-4 weeks they received my dress in size 6. I wanted the dress to fit tight to my body and to open it more in the back. After the second appointment my dress was customized for my body shape and looked marvelous. All the alterations were done professionally and the dress looks like no alterations were done. It's like it came like that from the factory. They suggested a gorgeous aplique and sash belt that definitely made my dress unique. Everyone at Ana's Bridal were very attentive and kind. I would definitely come back to this place, and I recommend it 100%.

Ana's Bridal is the best bridal shop around! When looking for my wedding dress, I had a specific style in mind.

I'd like to start by saying I am not a person who leaves bad reviews. Our experience at Ana's has been nothing short of an absolute nightmare. They lost our bridesmaid dress info, everyone had to go back in to reorder/get measured. Then, the dresses took so long to come in...

I bought my dress and my bridesmaids dresses from them 9 years ago and was very pleased with my experience so when my step daughter planned on getting married that's where I brought her to look and she found the dress of her dreams. My step daughter just had her wedding a... Read More little over a week ago. She used Ana's for her dress, her bridesmaids dresses and I also purchased my dress from them (right off the rack 2 weeks before the wedding cause I'm a slacker) They honestly were amazing. The bride couldn't do any alterations until the week of due to living halfway across the country and they made sure the dress fit like a glove. They made numerous alterations to my dress that you would have never known that it wasn't apart of the dress to begin with. Also there were no additional alteration fees. So when you order the size 6 dress for your hips and your torso is a 4 you don't get raped with fees. The only time you will be charged is if you are adding something. (Cups, stones, corset back) and I did all and have to admit the cost wasn't astronomical. I've heard people complain about lengthy alteration appointments but they took the time they needed to ensure it was done properly and also had walk-ins which could end up in a sale for them so I can't blame them for giving them service. I've also heard about complaints of brides dresses not coming in within a certain amount of time. Unfortunately they have no control of when a company will send them a dress. And I know they will give you fair warning if they are not comfortable with the amount of time and if you choose to still order you shouldn't hold them accountable for that. I also thought they were all very friendly and listened to all of our concerns. Happy shopping!
