This was the first salon I visited and I'm so glad! The staff was patient, professional, and so helpful! They carry so many gorgeous dresses and many very affordable and beautiful gowns as well. Michelle helped me find the most beautiful dress for my wedding and I am excited! :)
I don’t know where to begin! I put off dress shopping for so long, and had I known that it was going to be as fun as Ava’s made it, I would have gone a long time ago!! They listened to everything I wanted in a dress, every concern I had, and they made it so easy! I said yes within the first hour of being at the salon! I would highly recommend them to anyone!!!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about the women at Ava’s. They helped me pick my dream dress when I had no idea what I even wanted. They worked with me through my insecurities and were so wonderful and positive during my whole dress experience from try on to me walking down the aisle to my husband. Essie was absolute dream at my first appointment, with all of her years of experience under her belt she came through and helped with all my indecisiveness! And Sue was amazing to work with at all my fittings, she encouraged me with my weight loss and praised me when I finally met my goal. My mom and I just love them!!
I was 100% confident that I would find my dress here! I have been coming to Ava’s and Classy Concepts to get banquet dresses for a very long time and it finally came time to get the most important dress yet! They not only helped me pick out the right dress for my body but they are all so personable too! Thank you all so much!!
All the ladies on staff at Ava's made finding my wedding dress a wonderful experience. Between my two appointments I never felt neglected, even when on the Saturday that I finally picked my dress was super busy.
Ava’s Bridal is a Fort Worth hidden treasure. Upon walking in for my appointment, I instantly fell in love with the decor. The bridal assistants were all so sweet and welcoming. Jamaie seriously took in what I wanted in a dress and helped me find it. I know it’s not everyday that someone picks out the perfect wedding dress and it just happens to be the first one you try on, but in my case this is exactly what happened! She and Sue gave me schedule the most wonderful VIP appointment/ dress reveal for my bridal party afterwards. I am so greatful for everything they did to help me with my special day and can’t thank them enough.
Bought my dress for my MOH duties! Loved the experience at Ava’s! Will definitely return for all my formal wear!
I had heard of Ava's because my best friend used Classy Concepts for her dress. They were the last place I had an appointment for a day that was filled with appointments. I still wasn't sure what I wanted but felt like I would get more of an idea at this salon. I absolutely LOVED my consultant , I forgot her name :( but she was so calm and sweet which is just what I needed with all my family there. They knew that I only had two months before my wedding date so they were conscious of what I could pick out that would get in in time. If there was ever any crisis or worry they handled it so calmly. I definitely spent more than I had planned but it was so worth it when I found the perfect dress! I wanted to feel pretty and comfortable and I did! Would definitely recommend them, just don't go in with a budget under $500. Unless it's a sale, they had some good sale items!
We initially purchased seven matching bridesmaid dresses from Alfred Angelo, but after their bankruptcy, we were left without two of the dresses. Thank goodness for Sue at Ava's Bridal! We reached out to her after being referred to her by several people in a local bridal networking group, and she worked her magic to help us find two almost matching dresses with only three weeks to spare until the big day. This was a super stressful situation, and she totally lifted a lot of weight off of our shoulders with her diligence and kind reassurance that we would work it all out. :) I highly recommend her!
My daughter had two dress appointments scheduled for the same day. We started out with Ava's Bridal. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They anticipated our every need and listened carefully to every desire. Also, what a great selection of dresses and wedding accessories from which to choose! There were plenty of brides-to-be shopping that day, but the level of service and attention my daughter and I received made us feel like we were the only clients in the place. Needless to say, she found her dream dress at Ava's and we cancelled the second appointment. What a great experience!
I cannot sing enough praises about Ava's Bridal! They were all so incredible and made finding my dress such an enjoyable experience. Jamaie was my appointment coordinator and did an amazing job of pulling dresses that fit my vision. Sue's seamstress skills are insane. She tailored my dress perfectly and made sure I was 100% pleased with the end result; it fit like a GLOVE. She even broke out the tissues and sat with my mom while she cried mother-of-the-bride happy tears during our appointment. Overall, the staff couldn't have been better. They went above and beyond helping me find the perfect gown. I would recommend Ava's to any bride!
I LOVED my experience at Ava's Bridal. I recently went dress shopping, and Ava's was by far the most fun. When I was there, I felt truly valued. I did not feel rushed at all. My requests, opinions, concerns, etc. were listened to and respected. Jamaie was my consultant, and she was amazing! She was professional and so fun! I also want to add that they have dresses that fit a wide span of budgets. Most of their dresses are organized by price, so it's very very easy to stay within your budget. And there is ZERO pressure to spend more money or go above your budget. That was what truly set this bridal shop apart from others. I HIGHLY recommend at least adding Ava's to your list of places to go dress shopping. I am adding to this review at a later time after my wedding: Initially when I bought my dress, they told me it would take 3-7 months to come in (My wedding was in 6 months at the time). I panicked slightly and they quickly told me that no matter what they would have the dress ready in time for my wedding. The dress came in about 4 months and they altered it in less than 1 month. I also want to speak on the alterations process. It was a little frustrating because Ava's bridal only does alterations 1 day a week. They have a sister store called Classy Concepts in Mansfield that does alterations most days. So I ended up having to take my dress to their sister store to do alterations. While their alterations work was quality, it was very expensive. I felt it was overpriced, considering I did not have to have the bodice taken in AT ALL. I only had to have it hemmed, the straps taken up, and cups added. For this they initially quoted me over $500. I asked them if they would discount it, since I had bought the dress through their sister store. And they did- they knocked over $100 off the price. I'm so glad I asked! As much as it was though, the dress did fit perfectly after only one fitting! Despite the expense of alterations and they fact that they initially over-quoted me, I am still giving 5 stars because the process was smooth, my dress was perfect, and I did not have to worry about my dress being in good hands.
The most absolute AMAZING bridal boutique HANDS DOWN...after visiting 3, I am absolutely blown away by the selfless service they provide for all things: bridal gown, bridesmaid dresses and veils AND making it work with your wedding date! I fully trust their timing and service in making everything coordinate with the timeframe I need things by. Janae, Sue and Megan were OUTSTANDING! Extremely personable, and the sweetest. Highly highly recommend putting all your wedding needs in their hands as they make it as easy going and stress-free as it could be.
So many wonderful things to say about this place. Ava's genuinely cares about their brides and their experience. They want you to look beautiful and do whatever they can to lessen the stress. Every person ive spoken with has perpetuated this. Theyve worked with me every step of the way. I set up a last minute appointment during a black friday sale last november and they graciously fit me in. My consultant was so sweet and encouraging and i never felt rushed. She was very concious of my budget. My mother was not and i ended up in a dress that i immediately fell in love with and went way over my price range. Even then, since i was about a year out from my wedding she helped me with a payment plan that i felt comfortable with. The tailor has been incredibly kind, helpful and mindful of my budget as well. Really listening to my concerns and suggestions about the fit and giving me educated advice. I love this place! I recommend it every time a friend gets engaged!
The BEST Bridal Salon hands down. Kelly and Sue made my dress selection experience amazing. They went above and beyond to make my dress gorgeous by helping me with a semi custom design for my gorgeous dress that we found right on the rack. I live in Louisiana and traveled many miles for dress shopping in DFW. Choosing Ava's was one of the highlights of my wedding experience. The selection is fantastic and they will find you the perfect dress (even hard to fit sizes aren't an issue) Excellent is all I can say! Wish I could do it all over again just to experience working with them again!! LOVE Ava's!
I couldn't have imagined a better bridal experience! This was my second appointment of the day and the previous place didn't let me look at all gowns and only pulled what they thought I wanted. I left there disappointed and headed to Ava's. What a 180 difference! I was able to look at every gown and the consultant helped me find some that were similar to what I was looking for. She ended up finding the one for me and things just got better after that! They allowed my mom and MIL to have a great experience as well. So many places treat your guests rudely so we were happy with that. When my dress came in, Sue worked with me in getting the dress to fit perfectly and she was such a delight! It was so nice having my alterations done in store with someone who was familiar with the dress and designer! By far, the best part of the entire wedding process was my experience at Ava's!
Ava's is absolutely wonderful!! Jamaie was my consultant and she has the best customer service, listens to your wants in a dress, and makes you feel very comfortable! Ava's has a wide variety of dress styles, with a large selection of lace wedding dresses, which is what I was looking for. I said Yes To my dress at Ava's and am so glad I did! They have excellent follow up and are more than happy to help you in every way! Their new store location is so adorable, which has lots of room and private rooms for each bride and her guests. Not only all this, but when I called to schedule my first appointment I told Jamaie I would have my 2 year old daughter with me and she was so accepting and kind about the fact, where other Bridal salons wouldn't allow it. On my first appointment they were all so kind and accepting of my 2 year old :) thank you for your excellent customer service, Jamaie!
I live in Keller, so for me to have to drive from Keller to Fort Worth is a big deal. My initial reaction to the Ava’s Bridal staff was that I could trust their opinions and expertise. I tried on one bridesmaid dress and placed an order the same day. TWO staff members measured my waist, bust, hips, and torso. They then preceded to pull out a chart and told me that I should order a size 14 dress. I am 5’2, with a ‘B’ size cup, and I usually wear a size 6. So when the sales representatives told me that I needed a 14 I TRUSTED that they knew what they were talking about. I assumed that the dress ran small and I NEEDED a dress that was bigger than my usual size. So I placed an order for a size 14. I went to the store today and let the staff know that I would like to try on my dress, for the first time, before leaving the store. They brought me the dress and immediately I noticed it was HUGE. I could’ve fit a whole other person in this dress with me. The representative walked up to me and acted as if everything was fine with the dress and it’s look on my body. She then took in a handful of the dress in the back and said it would also need to be hemmed. I then asked her how much it would cost to have these alterations completed and how long would it take? She said “one week if you pay an express charge of $45 (and that she) wasn’t a seamstress so (she) wouldn't be able to tell (me) how much it would cost for these alterations.” I took me dress and left. I called back later that day and asked for the manager, I was forwarded to Sue. I explained how frustrated I was. I told her that I was going to have to spend more money getting my dress tailored because her staff members told me I needed a dress that was too big for my body. She told me that “the store isn’t liable for the dress that I ordered.” I then told her that I wouldn’t have ordered a size 14 if her employees hadn’t told me I needed one. She said that I should’ve “resolved all my concerns before ordering the dress.” I responded with “I didn’t have any concerns when ordering the dress because I trusted that your staff members would’ve made the right call.” She asked me “ what are you trying to get?” I told her I wanted compensation for the tailoring. She said “that’s not going to happen.” She went on to say she would “help” me with the express charge if I signed a waiver stating that I wouldn’t give them “any bad press.” I told her I would think about it. I have come to the conclusion that Ava’s Bridal staff members need to be better trained in how to measure a body for a specific dress. They also should take ownership for mistakes they make. I am not an expert on bridesmaids dresses and I shouldn't have to bring my own seamstress to make sure I get the right size dress. She then said that in her notes it said that I had “had a baby.” I told her that I am still the same size that I was when they originally measured me. Honestly, I was a little offended that she was trying to find a way to blame the incorrect order on me. I spoke to a seamstress who said she would've never ordered me this size and I should've had a size 6 or 8 ordered for me. ALL of the charts I looked up after the fact, based on my measurements, indicated that I definitely shouldn't have gotten a 14. I hope that after the manager sees this post she realizes it might have just been worth it to compensate me fully and apologize for their mistake. You can see my full story on their Facebook page review section.
I purchased my dream dress (a limited edition Sottero & Midgley) from Ava's and had a very nice purchasing experience. I even went back to purchase my bridesmaid dresses from them. I will say that the first issue happened here. I paid a deposit to have a certain bridesmaid dress style put on hold because the store was in the middle of transferring their bridesmaid inventory to their other location and the representative said the only way for the dress to stay in the store was for me to put a deposit on the sample. Ridiculous, but I paid the deposit. It was not until I came into the store with one of my bridesmaids to try on the dress that they informed me the dress had been discontinued. A phone call with that information prior to my appointment would have been nice. However, we found another nice bridesmaid dress (almost twice as expensive). Next, my veil arrived with a blusher. I can guarantee you that I did not order a veil with a blusher. I didn't even try one one. I searched through my contract for supporting documentation, but all that was written was an item number. When I asked for the store to reorder the veil, they happily obliged. When my "new veil" arrived, I went back to pick it up and the blusher had clearly and obviously been cut from the veil. They did not order a new veil at all. I asked again for a new veil and the second time, they did order a new one for me (or did a better job cutting it off). My final issue rests here: I didn't get to wear my dream dress because my wedding was cancelled. Please understand that I am not writing this review out of anger from a woman scorned; I truly feel that I could have been treated better. The salespeople were very insensitive when I asked about my contract and if anything could be done to return or resell the dress. They were unwilling to help and my messages and requests went unanswered. I won't bore you with the details, but there was more than one thing that rubbed me the wrong way about the exchanges I had with multiple sales representatives through this process. My dress budget was $3,000 and bridesmaid dresses totaled just under that amount. I truly hope this review reaches the store management because I think this should be an area in which staff could be better trained. Trained to be sensitive, understanding and empathetic to a customer's situation, even if the store cannot do anything for them. For a customer that spent quite a bit of money at the store, I wish I had been treated better at the end. After all, I will now be shopping for a second wedding dress one day. I would think that not too many brides are repeat customers and when a store has the opportunity to get a bride's business a second time, they should do their best to retain that customer.
Great experience! Went in just to start the looking process and walked out with the perfect gown! Terron was so sweet and helpful!
Ava's made it simple and easy to make a decision I thought was going to take me forever. Megan was my consultant and actually picked the dress I ended up picking. I told her I was having a beach wedding and she knew exactly what would work best. Thank you for all the help!
My bridal fitting was absolutely amazing!! Megan was bridal consultant and she did so wonderful! I told her what I was looking for and pulled amazing dresses! She even allowed me and my family to pick dresses which was wonderful! I even found a dress way under my ultimate budget! I said yes to the dress today and found the most beautiful dress! My absolute dream dress!! Thank you so much Avas bridal for the wonderful experience!
I loved my bridal appointment here at Ava's Bridal Couture! Megan was my consultant and she made my experience a great one! When I arrived I had one style of dress I wanted to try on from a picture, I had no other ideas or preference. The style I thought I wanted turned out to be terrible for my frame, at that point I was completely overwhelmed trying to think of a different style. Megan was patient, kind and really cared about me finding my dress. She took charge and started selecting dresses for me, after only 4 dresses I SAID YES TO THE DRESS! If you want a personal experience with no pressure, genuine opinions, and unique dresses this is THE place!
Sue is fantastic. I had a custom top added to my dress and working with her was a dream and it was fun. She was so patient she listened and took my words and made my dream dress. Not only did she provide a high quality service but she was a customer service dream. A couple of little things came up through the process (as I would expect with all of the custom items I wanted) and she communicated clearly and effectively she always made sure I was in the know. I just do not have enough good things to say about her. I wouldn't get my wedding dress anywhere else! I am so glad I found her... On another note they had a fantastic selection of plus size options TO ACTUALLY TRY ON AND SEE HOW it looks. I felt like the most beautiful girl in the world! Alterations were pricey but worth every penny.
I had a wonderful experience at Ava's bridal! It was the first place I went to look for a dress and I told Linda the different "looks" that I like and she pulled out all different styles that have the lacy look. It made dress shopping so easy and stress free! I ended up buying the 5th dress I tried on! It was perfect and I loved it and felt like a princess on my wedding day! Linda was so sweet and so helpful as well as the other girls who helped me when I came back to pick up my dress. I have already recommended Ava's to come friends and will continue to do so! :)
