I visited Ashley Grace yesterday to shop for my wedding dress. It was the first place I had been to try on dresses, and my experience was wonderful! The store is absolutely beautiful, and my consultant Lauren was so sweet and helpful. She allowed us to look through and pick some... Read More dresses to try, and she also picked some for me. The dress I ended up loving was one that she picked for me. I felt so comfortable throughout the entire appointment while working with Lauren. She was very knowledgeable about the different styles and designers. Unfortunately I could not make a decision and left without ordering my dress, but I may be returning in the near future.

Ashley Grace was the third bridal shop I had visited in the area, and had, by far, the best experience there! I visited on a weekday afternoon without an appointment, but was still assisted immediately. My consultant Lauren was an absolute sweetheart and very helpful. The... Read More fitting room was huge, and the store itself was nicely organized with a good selection of dresses. The staff members were all warm, welcoming, and genuine. Although I didn't buy my dress from Ashley Grace (I ended up going with a used dress to save money - but the dress I bought was one I'd tried on in the store!), I have already recommended Ashley Grace to other engaged friends. Oh, and I also received a sweet handwritten note from the store in the mail the week after I visited! That was just the cherry on top of an already very positive experience.

The store is gorgeous, the girls are friendly, the private rooms are fantastic. My review is a bit jaded because I fell in love with a dress and decided it was "the one" only to be told later that it had been discontinued and I would have to take the floor sample and couldn't... Read More order a brand new dress. As this dress was the ~60th dress I had tried on and the one and only I had said yes to I was devastated. I was devastated because the dress was obviously tried on by 100 other people and had what looked like I cigarette hole in the back of the train. I had zero intention of buying a "used" dress and was visibly upset that the one dress I had fallen in love with had to be in this condition. Obviously I was not going to pay full price for a damaged dress so only after pushing did someone offer me 10% off. 10% off and I was going to have to pay someone to fix the dress and have it cleaned? Nope. Finally someone called the owner who came in and offered me the MSRP, a veil for free, and they would have the dress cleaned and fixed if I used their preferred alterations lady. Fine. I did the deal. The saga continues... I make an appointment with said preferred alterations lady and make the 2 hour drive back to meet with her for my first fitting. She is over an hour late with no word. Luckily she was sweet and seemed to do a good job of pinning the dress.. she promises me August (my wedding is in September). 8 months to take straps up and hem the dress, no alterations of the body because LUCKILY it fit me perfectly. Okayyyyy, sure whatever you say. We then are told to pay the balance for the dress because we are "taking it home"... nooo your alterations lady is taking it. YOUR alterations. Moving on. 2 months pass and I get all call from the store saying that unfortunately the alterations lady has had a "family emergency" and can't complete my dress... by August. Great. So they say I can come pick up the dress (that magically reappeared at their store despite me OWNING IT) whenever and offer me a list of other options for alterations. I have to remind them of the situation; they are paying for repair and cleaning. At this point I'm tired of dealing with run around and done with driving 2 hours to see them. Sweet girl says she will talk to the owner and get back to me. The next day or two she calls back and says great news, we have someone who is taking care of your dress as we speak and it will be done for you in a few days. WHAT?!? So you're telling me you sent the dress I OWN (remember the one you made me pay the remainder of) off to some unknown alterations without my permission and approval? Cool. So at this point I am beyond tired of being jerked around and just want the dress back in my possession before it is ruined further. I make the hike back to pick it up and find it creased and sewed up along where the hole is. I'm told whoever does my alterations can trim the excess fabric to make it less noticable.. whatever, I'm done. Luckily my business with them is complete. I can't say that I would deter a friend from going but I would certainly warn them and tell them to ask all necessary questions and not let anyone try to pull any crap. This has been the most and only stressful part of my wedding planning process and I'm glad its over.
