To the ladies of Andrea's- thank you, I am so grateful. When I think about planning our wedding what I remember most is my experience at your store. If you're thinking about going somewhere else, DON'T. I live in Portland so I originally wanted to go outside the city to find my dress- I wanted to avoid having a similar dress to any of my friends. I went to two stores in NH and wasn't impressed with either store; I felt pushed, rushed and wasn't happy with things the consultants pulled. My mom suggested Andrea's Bridal and I am so thankful. From the second I walked into Andrea's I could tell I was going to find my dress. The store itself was welcoming, on top of that, we were greeted warmly, the shop was well organized and all the dresses were out to look through. I wasn't entirely sure what I was looking for in a wedding dress and was frustrated by the other bridal stores I had been to; but the ladies of Andrea's made me feel completely at ease. They listened, were attentive and most of all they made the shopping experience fun! Jill (consultant) not only found my perfect wedding gown (I didn't want to take the thing off) but picked out a stunning color for the bridesmaids dresses. My dress and the colors completely set the tone for the rest of our wedding. I had a bit of a snafu when I got my dress altered...by snafu I mean the dress still didn't fit right...ONE week before the wedding. I called the store hoping they might have a suggestion of someone to help. The owner, Julia, was on it! She called in a seamstress that the store works with and took care of it. Something that should have been hair pullingly stressful the week of my wedding was, instead, completely handled. I can't express enough gratitude to these ladies. They went above and beyond every step of the way.
So helpful!Reviewed on 10/03/2013 Andrea B
I had Ashley as my consultant and she was amazing. The first time I went in she did not expect nor pressure me to buy a dress. She let us try on and look at dresses then sent me home and said come back again and we will look at your favorites and try on more. She helped me find the perfect dress that fit my venue!! It was vintage just like the field/ old farm were we were married. Later I decided I wanted a veil and she was there to give me the one that made my mom cry first try!! The dress and veil were in in plenty of time!! And they press the dress for free right before the wedding.
Amazing Service!Reviewed on 10/01/2013 Kristy W
Andrea's was awesome! I had an idea of what I thought I wanted, but wasn't impressed with the dresses once I tried them on. Our consultant brought a different style dress and suggested I try it on, I did, and loved it. I didn't feel rushed at all, it was very relaxed and I found an amazing, classic dress that I (and everyone else) loved.
Bought my bridal gown at Andrea's several months ago, just went in to try it on for the first time & fell in love all over again! I was put with the same consultant (also the store owner !!) Julia who is absolutely AMAZING! Once again, we had a wonderful experience & I can't sing the praises of this salon enough! All of the consultants there were always ready to help with a smile & outstanding knowledge of the products they carry! Will be going back for bridesmaids, mothers and anything else we can think of! : ) Thank you again Julia!!!
Andrea's bridal is amazing!!!! I found my dream wedding dress after trying on only four dresses! And it wasn't even one I had picked out. My bridal consultant Jennifer just knew exactly what style dress I was describing and pulled it out! It was perfect! All of the girls that work there are so wonderful! I highly recommend going here for the best bridal experience!
Went to Andrea's Bridal a couple of weeks ago with my mother & a few friends -- we couldn't be happier with our experience at Andrea's! My consultant Jill went above & beyond our expectations -- she pulled my dream dress after trying a few other styles & I just fell in love with the feeling I had when wearing it! A HUGE thank you to all the ladies at Andrea's!!
A wide selection with a caring staffReviewed on 10/29/2015
Andrea’s was my first—and last—stop on the wedding dress hunt. I was incredibly nervous when I got to the store, but Jill immediately made me feel at ease. After showing her a few photos, she immediately knew which dresses to pull, and I left that day with my dress purchased! Wonderful and well established Portland shop with a wide selection and kind, helpful staff.
The best.Reviewed on 10/07/2015 Amy B
I searched high and low for my perfect wedding dress, and nothing felt "right" until I went to Andrea's. The store is beautiful, the employees are BEYOND wonderful, and the selection is fantastic. I had two bridal appointments (after being indecisive the first time), and found "the" dress my second time back. I felt so special the entire time, and never felt pressured to buy. My experience at Andrea's was arguably the best experience I had with a "vendor" throughout my entire wedding planning process. Love them!!!
So happy with this place. Found my dress today thanks to Jill. The staff is so friendly and really makes you feel valued as a bride. Jill was on point with her suggestions and found everything I wanted in my price range.I tried two other bridal gown stores before making my final decision, but Jill made me feel the most valued, beautiful, and welcomed as a bride. Thank you Jill!
Loved Them!Reviewed on 8/16/2015 Alison W
Everyone here is so amazing! I never felt pressured when trying on dresses. I chatted with my consultant about what I was looking for style wise and it felt like she had known me for years. She brought out exactly what I was looking for! I would go back here in a heartbeat and recommend Andrea's to anyone!
Wonderful bridal boutiqueReviewed on 7/08/2015 Lindsey M
Andreas was absolutely perfect! I went in with quite a large amount of people and they treated us like we were part of a royal family. We enjoyed sipping on champagne as I found my perfect wedding gown. It was an amazing experience and they have such a great group of gals running the place!
Amazing ServiceReviewed on 3/23/2015 Katie W
I didn't actually purchase my dress at Andrea's but the service I received there was amazing. Julia worked with me and didn't make me feel obligated to purchase there and supported my decision to buy a very nice dress off the rack at another bridal shop. I've recommended Andrea's to all of my other friends who are wedding planning and two are already getting dresses from there.
Great service, and beautiful dressesReviewed on 1/27/2015 Sarah
I went to Andrea's Bridal with two of my bridesmaids to look for bridesmaid dresses, and we worked with the owner Julia. She was very helpful and had a lot of great suggestions. I brought a picture of my dress, and told her about color options I was looking for. Julia showed us dresses that were available in the color I wanted, and the girls helped me pick out some styles to try on. They each tried on several dresses before we settled on a style. We ordered our dresses early enough to avoid any issues. The manufacturer sent the wrong dress size for one of my bridesmaids, and Andrea's took care of it quickly. All of the dresses came in a few months before the wedding. The turned out great and all of the girls loved them!
Loved My Dress!Reviewed on 11/01/2014 Victoria M
The consultants are great, they make you feel like a princess and are willing to go above and beyond to find you your perfect gown. I was so pleased with the perfect fit when it came in and how easy it was to leave my dress there until the big day. They make sure everything is steamed and ready to go for your big day and are always willing to share their advice. Great experience! My dress was perfect and yes I cried when I put it on, it was an amazing experience.
Best experience!Reviewed on 10/30/2014 Lisa L
When I think back to wedding planning, one of the best experience s I had leading up to my wedding was dress shopping at Andreas Bridal. Julia was wonderful, and "got" me and my style immediately. She stuck to my budget, and was a lot of fun. The selection was amazing- for all price points- and the experience was private and custom. It has t o be tiring dealing with indecisive edgy brides all day, but Julia didnt give me that impression at all. It was clear that she loves her job, and is good at it too. Couldn't provide a higher recommendation than this!
One stop shop!Reviewed on 10/30/2014 Shannon R
Andrea's Bridal was the first boutique I went to when trying on wedding gowns. The staff was amazing, knowledgable, and most importantly professional. The fourth dress I tried on was the bridal gown I ended up buying but still had other appointments set up at other salons. The staff was great and told me that the designer was having a trunk show that weekend so if I came back for the dress I would actually get a better deal! I ended up coming back the next day and knew exactly which dress was mine. I loved my experience so much that I ended up having my bridesmaids get their dresses there too! It was such a pleasure working with Andrea's and wouldn't have had it any other way!
THE BEST!!!Reviewed on 10/29/2014
I purchased my dress and all of my bridesmaid dresses through Andrea's and everything from my first appointment down to when I picked up my dress was amazing. They went out of their way to make the experience enjoyable for me and all of my girls!! Their entire staff is knowledgeable, helpful and FRIENDLY!! I would recommend Andreas to any bride!!
Loved this placeReviewed on 10/08/2014 Christie P
I got my dress here and I am so thankful. Everyone was so kind and welcoming. I loved their free steam clean and holding of the dress until I was ready to pick it up the day before the wedding.
Love!Reviewed on 9/26/2014 Maegan T
Very friendly and very attentive staff....way lees chaotic than chain stores! I would go back again in a heart beat!
Andrea's BridalReviewed on 8/03/2014 Suzanne H
I went here on my first time wedding dress shopping and while I didn't end up buying my dress here, I did have a fantastic experience. The consultant was very sweet, but honest and let me really take my time in each dress. I probably would have returned here to shop, but I live in NYC so ended up buying my dress there instead.
Wonderful wedding dress shopReviewed on 7/09/2014 Kristin E
I loved the atmosphere much better than David's Bridal. The dresses were of a higher quality too. I was there many times to try on different dresses. They truly went above and beyond. I think in total I tried on 50 dresses. The one I loved the best was in the first 10. Then I found out it was discontinued and they sold the one off the rack. They went to the trouble to find one left in the warehouse and it was exactly my size!! I was so thrilled. Erica, whom I worked with the most, was awesome! I would highly recommend this shop!

Andrea's Bridal was very helpful when trying to pick our the perfect wedding dress! I had the best luck finding dresses I actually liked here. There were gorgeaus, reasonable priced dresses which is what i was looking for! They were very helpful and we had a fun time, and i was happy with my purchase!
Wonderful ExperienceReviewed on 11/12/2013 Laura S
Such a great experience. The staff was so helpful when I went to their sample sale to find my wedding dress. I got such a great value and a perfect dress! My bridesmaids also purchased their dresses from Andreas and the second time experience was just as wonderful as the first. I would highly recommend Andrea's Bridal!
Erica is the best!!!!Reviewed on 11/09/2013 Laura A
AMAZING PEOPLE! Seriously everyone that works there are the best. I worked directly with Erica for my wedding gown, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride dress. Every time he listened, gave opinions, and DELIVERED! My wedding dress was the first one a tried on and I was skeptical, but Erica gave me time to think about it. I had to come back to the store because I had an appt elsewhere (glad I went, made my decision about the people and business a lot easier). She couldn't promise me that I would be able to try my dress on again, but I came back and she took the time to let me and i fell in love. The same went for everything else. The people are fantastic and the dresses are gorgeous. I would totally recommend this bridal shop to anyone in the area. It was convenient for me because I live in MA and my family in coastal Maine.
Dream DressReviewed on 11/06/2013 Julia C
I had so much fun going to Andrea's Bridal in Portland for my wedding gown. They had a beautiful selection and friendly and helpful staff. You can tell that Julia, the shop owner loves her job. She's so bubbly and happy and always willing to help and offer her opinion. I love my dress consultant Erica, she really knows her dresses and understands what you're looking for. She also pulled some dresses that I never would have pulled for myself but I ended up linking. Making the trip is definitely worth it.
