Love Angela's Bridal

Reviewed on 10/13/2014 Karen V

I was recently married in September and purchased my dress from Angela's. Angela's was the only bridal shop I needed to go to when looking for my dress because they had exactly what I was looking for. My consultant Nora was very helpful and attentive during the first time trying... Read More on dresses. The shop is beautiful and by appointment only, so it was a relaxing experience with only me and another bride in the store during the appointment. Angela's staff is on top of everything and alerted me immediately when my dress arrived. The seamstress team was very highly skilled and made the dress look even more beautiful. I had an issue with my final fitting due to unintended weight loss so the seamstress ensured she would fix the dress and it would still be ready on time (I was not charged for the second revision which was nice). The prices at Angela's aren't that bad, but the environment and customer service is well worth the extra cost than going to a place like David's Bridal. I would recommend this shop to anyone getting married in the Capital Region.

I highly recommend this Bridal shop. I wasn't expecting to spend as much as this on my dress, but it was totally worth it. I went into the store with specific ideas of what I wanted. The lady who helped me -Nora- found me my dream dress immediately! It was all in all a magical... Read More experience. They treated me with respect, discretion and kindness. The dresses are absolutely gorgeous. They have many styles and the designers will custom make the dress you choose.

I loved everything about this dress shop! They made me feel so extremely comfortable and I would have bought my dress here in an instant if it would have been closer to my home in WNY and I could have easily made the trip there with family and friends. Highly recommend!!

My Bridesmaid's got their dresses here . The experience was mostly great. When we were picking out dresses they were attentive and knowledgeable. The only problem I had was that we had originally been told the dresses would take 3-5 months ( I don't know if that's accurate... Read More information or not) but it had been about 2 weeks past the 5 month mark and I called to check on the dresses and the girl was rather rude and couldn't give me an update- which may be true, but I had been able to check on dresses from other shops in the past, so I didn't appreciate the attitude. So a few days later, one of my bridesmaids called to check on her dress and was told she couldn't get any information, the bride was the only one who could be updated, which I find weird since she was the one who purchased the dress. It would have been fine if we were given the same information from start to finish, but I feel like we were constantly being given different information based on who we talked to. All in all, we got the dresses, and the staff that was there when she picked up our dresses was again very good. The dresses were absolutely stunning, our first experience there was great, and despite the bumps in the road, I would still recommend them.

Angela's Bridal is the best store for one of a kind dresses and a personal bridal experience. After trying on several dresses that I had selected and giving feedback on each one, Nora said she had one more dress for me to try on. It was a dress that I would have never picked out... Read More myself but it ended up being the one. Schuyler and Rosa are both professional and friendly, and provide the best customer service through out the whole experience. After several dress fittings, I still was unsure of the fit at the top of my dress. A little over a week before the wedding, the owner had the seamstress sew in a corset to add shape to the dress. When I went to pick up the dress and have a final fitting I noticed the top still didn't look quite right. Nora stayed with me for three hours helping to make last minute adjustments to the dress. It ended up looking perfect and I can't thank her enough!

I could not be happier with my experience working with Angela's, from the day I made the appointment to try on dresses to the day I picked up my wedding dress. I made appointments to try on dresses at two salons and I am so glad my appointment at Angela's was first--it was the... Read More only one I needed. They made the appointment feel special, as if you were the only bride in the world. They started by asking what I was looking for and told me and the rest of the girls with me to take a look through all the dresses and pick out the ones we liked best. As it turns out, what I thought I wanted wasn't working at all, and a style I never imagined myself in was ultimately my perfect dress. This is completely to the credit of the consultant, who listened so carefully to what I was looking for and what I loved and hated about each dress I tried on. I am so glad she pulled the dress that she did, because I would have never thought to pick it out myself! I never felt pressured at all through the appointment and she helped keep me calm as I tried on dress after dress. Once it came time for fittings, the salon was very proactive in setting appointments and making sure there was plenty of time for adjustments. Throughout multiple fittings, the staff listened to all of my feedback and were very responsive in making the necessary changes. For my very last fitting (two days before the wedding) the dress didn't fit quite right at the top, but in less than an hour the dress had been altered and fit perfectly. They were happy to make the changes and completely calm throughout the process, which helped me stay calm and not stress out about anything. I am thrilled with my entire experience and am so glad I chose Angela's.

I want to start out by saying that we did not get any of our dresses here, but I really wish we had! Two of my girls got their bridesmaid dresses at another (disastrous) bridal salon and up to a week and a half before the wedding had not had their dresses come in. I ended up... Read More seeing reviews and news articles about this other salon and about their dishonest practices, and in a panic I began calling other bridal salons in the area to see if we could get any of the dresses off the rack. Skylar answered the phone and was SO helpful in giving me information about steps to take next, and she was BEYOND helpful in going out of her way to try to help us out. Thankfully our dresses came in at the other place a week before and we didn't need to scramble, but Skylar called and followed up to make sure we were set. This place has the most AMAZING customer service! Thank you Skylar!

I loved my experience at Angelas! The wedding dress is such a large element of a wedding and I was struggling when it came to finding mine. What I thought I wanted I didn't end up liking and was struggling with my body image. I was about to hang up the towel on my appointment... Read More here but my consultant was not giving up on me. She pulled out this dress that with some alterations basically was a collection of the all elements I loved from other dresses. She made be feel beautiful and confident with my choice.

I would not recommend Angela's Bridal after the experience I had with my alterations. They were done very poorly. The loop holes for the buttons were too large, so my dress came unbuttoned all night. The bustle partially broke and kept coming undone whenever I moved around a... Read More lot--the worst part is it happened during my first dance with my husband. We had to keep redoing the bustle and buttons all night. There were loose strings all over the top part of my dress, small holes on the train. The underneath was wrinkled. The corset that came with the dress did not work with it. They did resolve this issue, but not until 20 minutes before I took my dress home. I did not notice all of the other issues with my dress when I picked it up. If I did, I wouldn't have taken it until it was right. When you invest in a store you hope you will be valued. During all 4 fittings the owner did not look over the dress on me once. She never called my mother back or myself about our concerns until after all of our issues happened after the wedding. The seamstress made many comments telling me not to eat too much during the holidays- this is after she stretched the delicate fabric out so it wouldn't be too tight. We had a lot of unfortunate dealings during alterations. I am also wondering if my dress was ordered too small to begin with. I am NOT bridal gown expert so I put my trust in this store, not ever imagining this would happen. When you pick out a dress one year before your wedding you expect it to be just perfect. When you pay $500.00 for alterations, you expect it to be done correctly. There are so many things out of your control for your wedding, so your bridal gown should be something you feel good about. From the time I tried my own dress on in November I was stressed out about how it fit me. This could have been avoided if proper care and communication happened between the owner, myself, and the seamstress.

Angela's Bridal is the BEST place to go if you are looking for not only the best wedding gown, but also that once-in-a-lifetime experience. Nora was my bridal consultant, and she was AMAZING! We live in NC but were getting married in NY. I actually found my dress in NC, but... Read More wanted that "experience" with my mom and sisters who live in NY. So my mom called around some shops to see if they had the dress I liked in their stock. Angela's Bridal had it. So, we made an appointment and I flew up there. I am SOOOOO happy I did! From the second you walk in, you feel special. The staff is great and welcomed us. Nora already had my dress in one of the dressing rooms, but told my family they could pick out anything they wanted me to try on. She took all the dresses we picked out and helped me put them on one-by-one. We had even brought in champagne and everything! Then, we put my dress on last. I knew right away that it was "the one". Nora walked us into the front of the store so I could stand in front of their big windows and see what it looked like with the natural light hitting it. She helped us narrow down a veil and everything. After I officially said "yes" to the dress, we had about 30 minutes left in our appointment, so she told us we could hang out in the back by the dressing room and finish our champagne and just enjoy the moment. I really appreciated that! It was honestly the BEST experience!! Since I was a destination bride, Angela's Bridal worked with my schedule to help schedule my fittings. I didn't need it hemmed so they gave me a great discount on the price of my alterations. Plus, even though months would pass between when I would see them, every time I walked in there everyone remembered me! Every time I went there I felt as special as I did the first time I put my dress on. Nora was amazing and the whole staff was awesome. I would HIGHLY recommend getting your gown at Angela's Bridal!!

From the moment you walk in, you are blown away by the beauty of both the building and dresses.

I did have an issue when I showed up the Tuesday before my wedding and an important alteration hadn't been done (the seamstress apparently did not understand the ticket and did not ask).
