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.

Angela's Bridal was amazing to work with from beginning to end! My consultant Nora was able to figure out exactly what I needed, and guided me in the right direction to find my dream dress!

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.

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.

It was not Angela's fault, but my dress took 12 months to come in and arrived just under 4 weeks before the wedding (cue the stress!) They got me right in for alterations that day and I went back the next week. 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). They had it done immediately, though, apologized profusely and took $100 off my alterations. The owner is lovely and the sales girls are all very friendly. They have a lot of bridesmaids dresses from w hich to choose and the dresses my girls ordered all came in quickly. Despite the stress the week of the wedding, I would highly recommend them!!

Reviewed on 9/15/2014 Kathleen R

I would like to share my story to hopefully prevent another bride from going through what I had to in dealing with this salon. My dress needed to be hemmed, a bustle placed & to be pressed. I had 4 fittings, each time an issue with the dress. I was dealing with the owner Janet.... Read More At the fitting Janet would come in the room for 5-10 minutes. She would verbally dictate alterations to a young staff member that had a confused blank look on her face. I never met the actual seamstress. I was concerned each fitting. The dress was unevenly hemmed up until the week of my wedding, hem was too short in the front, sides too long and flipping up so you could see the under side. I was told all of these issue would be fixed every time I brought them to the staff and Janet’s attention. In the end the front of the dress remained too short and the hem continued to flip up. I not only was stuck with a dress they had done a botch job on, they did not make sure to re-state they wanted $350 in cash only for the [email protected] up the week of my wedding. If a business feels telling someone this information by putting it on paperwork 6 months prior to the date of pick up or hanging a sign on the wall like you would see at a convenience store acceptable as a standard of practice that is unfortunate. I was at the salon 3 times the week of my wedding,they did not bring this up until my maid of honor went to pick up the dress the day before my wedding. They had this poor girl walk in the rain to an ATM in order to get $350 in cash for them to release the dress. What type of a business runs this way! I spent thousands of dollars and this is what they do over $350. They could have easily taken credit as a hold. Myself and 3 bridesmaids were almost 2 hrs late to my rehearsal. I cried the entire way there because of it all. What a terrible thing for this establishment to put a bride though the day before her wedding no less. The week following my wedding I contacted Janet. It was drawn out over two weeks of me articulating all that was done wrong & all she was willing to do was refund me my money back for the alterations and state not to contact her any further. She ruined the way my dressed looked on my wedding day, my pictures are there to forever represent this. She negatively impacted my memories and my emotional state throughout it all. A business owner that conducts their establishment in this manner should attend a seminar on customer service & character building to understanding what the proper way is to handle these situations! I foolishly trusted & allowed this woman to have part in my wedding dress and experience. I chose a wedding dress that was supposed to be a certain way. The dress was not what it was suppose to be. I will have my wedding pictures the rest of my life to be reminded of the poor quality that Angela’s bridal provided. I am a professional and reasonable person that was just looking for someone to be a decent business owner/human being in taking ownership for the mistakes that occurred. The right thing to do would have been to at the least offer a portion of the money spent on the dress back to compensate for this entire situation as a sign of an understanding of all the wrong doing that had occurred. Instead the owner of this salon chooses to continue to not take accountability in regards to this specific situation. I feel I would have gotten more customer service from a low end bridal store than I did a "high end”.
