Perfect ShoppingReviewed on 10/29/2013 Monette M
I LOVED this shop. After shopping previously at another store I was devistated and ready to give up. Bella was so warm and welcoming. Everytime I was there everyone was friendly. I went with my mother and mother-in-law. We all got to pick dresses for me to try on and they also gave us ideas once they saw what we liked and didn't. I found the perfect dress that I got SO MANY compliments thanks to the help of the sales girl. It wasn't one we had even seen.
Favorite bridal shop ever!Reviewed on 10/24/2013 Ashley G
Bella Bridal was my absolute favorite shop of my wedding dress search. The first time at the shop, I came in for a specific dress and my consultant did a great job of listening to what I liked and came up with others to try. My consultant insisted on going 45 minutes past my appointment allotment and 30 minutes after closing time! Not once did she push for me to buy a dress, nor did she seem annoyed with me. The second time I came in, I came just to try one dress, and, again, we stayed past closing. Such a great experience shopping here! Just wish I had been able to buy my dress here!
GREAT, Great, great!Reviewed on 10/07/2013 Stephanie K
The staff at bella bridal was excellent!! They helped me choose my wedding dress after looking for two days at so many other places! They made me feel welcome and really listened to what I wanted in my wedding dress! Also, they were flexible for me as a distance bride! :)
I've had a few bad experience here---It's all fine and dandy when you're getting your dress and paying for it until something happens or a mistake was made and then all their customer service goes right out the window. They don't take the blame for any of their mistakes and they don't care at all about their customers. They just want your money and once they get that then they could care less about you as a customer and as a human being. The staff was completely rude and unhelpful with my situation and was constantly lying in their tracks. Nothing was ever done to make the situation right and yet they continue to get away with these things. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.
It was an okay experience - the shop was pretty chaotic and busy, and the stylist was somewhat rude to my party. She was a bit helpful in terms of dresses but I felt a lot of pressure to drive the appointment. It wasn't very inclusive and we had to take off our shoes. One good part was that the dresses are affordable. They have many lace and beaded dresses, not as many simple ones. It was just ok.
Words can't describe how wonderful my dress shopping experience was at Bella! I had gone to a. Other salon in the cities and their dress selection for my size was beyond disheartening. When I got to Bella they were so welcoming and set me up in my room and I was given number tags to tag dresses I liked. All dresses were around a 14 which is a NORMAL SIZE and I felt so bubbly and was able to try on almost all of the dresses. I ended up falling in LOVE with my dress and they worked with me and stated that I would need to buy the sample I had on to make sure I had it in time it worked out so well! I even got a discount and who doesn't like a deal! I have a lot of self image issues after being diagnosed with hypothyroidism and I can tell you that I didn't have those feelings here. They were able to made all dresses "fit" and I could get a complete idea of what each dress would look like altered on me. I was not too crazy about being around four other brides-to-be but we all made each other feel so welcomed. I just loved it. And my family and friends had so much fun!
This place was AMAZING!!! The boutique has a lot of dresses but not too many where you feel overwhelmed looking. I went wedding dress shopping by myself first so I could find out what style I really liked without the opinions of other people and the consultant was very respectful of that. The 4th dress I tried on was "the one". Since they were running a special and the dress was just a little out of my price range (and with the special, it would be closer to the range), they were okay waiting for my mom to come up to the boutique so she could see the dress before it was purchased. During that half hour, I got to play dress-up with a bunch of different dresses I would never had tried on. It was funny because other people who were there would see the dresses I had on and say "oh, can my daughter try that one on next?". My dress came in very quickly after we ordered it which was a relief! I also got my veil there because they had the specific style and color that matched perfectly with my dress. I highly recommend choosing Bella Bridal for helping you find "the one" :)
I had an amazing experience during my visit at Bella, following a terrible experience at another salon. My consultant was incredible. She listened to what I wanted, brought in amazing dresses, and even helped me envision a custom dress. She continued helping me well after my appointment should have ended, and after the store closed. I would have given five stars, except after I left the store, she was going to reach out to the designer to discuss the customization we discussed and get back to me. I didn't hear from her, I reached out again and was told she would get back to me, but never did get a response.
I tried on only 5 dresses and found the perfect one. Hannah was great to work with! I'd highly recommend Bella Bridal!
Kathy, Ashley, and the whole Bella team are remarkable! I cannot say enough good things about them! They help you to find that perfect dress without extending or pushing your budget limits! Additionally, they're great at picking dresses which highlight your assets! Love this amazing group of women and the business class they stand for!
Bella Bridal was the first store I went to for wedding dress shopping. Taylor was a dream to work with, and I truly wish I had been able to purchase my dress from her. From the second we walked through the door, I felt like she was on the mission with me to find the perfect dress. She was kind, knowledgable, and even thought of a dress that had come in the day before and wasn't on the floor yet that fit my dress criteria. She let me try it on fresh out of the stock room before it had even been steamed, just in case it was the one (it was a close second to my final dress!). Every dress we tried was within (and even well under!) my budget. The boutique was ideal -- just a few dressing rooms, but all the dresses on the floor, out of bags, for everyone to see. We were allowed to choose our four favorites to try on (I ran out of tags really fast, and Taylor let me choose a couple more for my first go), and she brought a couple she thought complimented our choices. The fitting-room process was great because the consultants hand you the dress to slip in to and then come in the dressing room to zip or tie you in when you're "decent." I'm not a shy girl so that part didn't matter one way or the other to me, but it was nice to not have to share a small space (though I will say these fitting rooms were quite sizeable) with a another person as well as a ball gown. I unfortunately found my dream dress at another store (a designer Bella doesn't carry) or else I would have been back to purchase my favorite gown up to that point. The entire group had a wonderful experience and the store graciously accomodated all five of my family members. Thanks again to Taylor who made this bride's first experience in a wedding dress everything it should have been. We will hopefully be back in a few months for bridesmaid dress shopping!
I had a great experience at Bella Bridal. All of the staff I interacted with was knowledgeable and friendly. I bought my dress and some jewelry here. The jewelry was actually free with a deal they gave me for buying my dress there (other benefits included: free steaming, veil and bridesmaid dress discounts, and more). They respond quickly to emails, and I never had an issue getting an appointment. They have a large selection of dresses and prices comparable to other dress shops in the area.
Bella was so wonderful to work with when purchasing my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses. I contacted them the day before asking about a specific dress and they had it pulled and set aside for my appointment! Then, when I went with my MOH to pick bridesmaid dresses they had my dress pulled so we could compare colors and designs to it. My girls said ordering their dresses online was super easy and they were really happy with their experiences as well!
Great service, great people, and exactly what I was hoping for in a dress shopping experience! Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Loved shopping here! They were very nice and helpful even when I called before hand & had the dresses pulled that I wanted to try (ultimately I picked one of those dresses). They were very clear and helpful!! The only thing I didn't like was the consultant handed me the dresses through a slit and I had to get into them myself. I'm not sure how many times I told her I don't mind if you are in here, she still insisted on handing them back & forth without looking. It made me feel very awkward about changing when ordinarily I'm not like that. Other then that I had a very nice visit!
Katie was very helpful. The shop was pleasant and inviting. I bought my dress here. Katie didn't pressure me at all, which made me 100% confident that I was purchasing the correct dress. One complaint is that we didn't talk budget, and one of the dresses I tried on was very over. Glad I didn't like that one.
As a plus sized bride I was super super nervous to go and try on dressed. I called ahead and was assured by the ladies at Bella Bridal they would have items for me to try on and ideas for making me look my best and feel comfortable. LET ME TELL YOU THIS: THEY DID IT! I had such a blast every time I went into the shop, everyone was so kind and thoughtful and most importantly made me feel like a bride! I loved my dress (which I bought on my first visit to the shop) and was ecstatic that the shop assistant helped me fall in love with it even though I couldn't really try it on (the sample was a very very small size). Needless to say I felt like a princess on my wedding day and it would not have been possible without the amazing group of people working at Bella Bridal.
I loved my experience with Bella Bridal! The size of the shop creates an intimate experience and all of the staff were beyond helpful and encouraging as I searched for the perfect dress. Joy was my go-to girl at Bella, she listened to what I envisioned for my wedding day and she was actually the one who pulled the dress that I ended up picking! All-around fabulous experience with staff who genuinely wanted me to pick the dress that made me look and feel the best. You will not regret making an appointment at Bella!
Bella Bridal Boutique was fabulous and made me feel so much like a bride! They have a large dress selection at various price points, along with great customer service! Bella was the first bridal shop I went to and I went to one more and came back!! Highly recommend! ♡
I worked with Taylor as my consultant and she was absolutely fantastic! She was so personable and outgoing, she made finding my dress a breeze! I showed her a few pictures on Pinterest of what I imagined my dress to look like and she found a few that matched that vision, and let us pull some that we also possibly liked in the boutique! Taylor helped me with every step and assisted with veils and jewelry to complete looks to get to "whole package" to see what it would look like! I fell in love with my dress on my first visit and I was given a credit towards my veil so it was almost free, as well as an additional credit which I used to purchase my belt! First time buyers also get the dress steamed for free, a nice dress bag, and storage for free! I loved my experience with Bella and I would recommend them to anyone!!
I purchased from Bella twice in the past year-- once for my wedding dress, and once for a bridesmaid dress for a friend's wedding. Both experiences with the shop were fabulous! The customer service and selection are outstanding! They have a wide array of price ranges (you can also look on the website), and are respectful about staying within your budget. Every consultant I worked with was professional, knowledgeable, and fun. It was just like an episode of "Say Yes to the Dress"-- they listen to you, find out what you like or don't like about the dresses you are trying on, and somehow they pull your dream dress from the rack! I had a wonderful experience here, and I highly recommend Bella Bridal! A special thank you to Jessica for helping me find my dream dress!
I had a wonderful experience at Bella Bridal! I really liked that they let you go and look for a couple of dresses you'd like to try off of the racks right when your appointment starts! I had Paige as my "assistant" and I cannot say enough good things about her. She was so patient and worked to find dresses that I liked. Hats off to Bella Bridal!
LOVED my experience with Bella! It was awesome that it starts off with picking out a few dresses you're drawn to, and then the consultant helps find more to try on based on the things you do and don't love about the initial ones. The gals working there really know their stuff and are so incredibly helpful and sweet. They made the process so fun and not at all stressful. Of the 5 bridal gown shops I went to, Bella was by far my favorite!
Bella Bridal was awesome! At my initial appointment, the consultant put me in so many different dresses of so many different styles - she wanted to be sure I knew exactly what I wanted. I purchased my dress at this first appointment and received so many perks for doing so. When my dress came in, it was huge so Bella sent it back to the designer for a rush order smaller size at no extra cost.
Make sure to ask what their current promotions are when you call to make your initial appointment. You have to purchase on your first visit in order to get the special. They got me on the dress steaming a year after my initial appointment. Steaming the dress alone is $100 after you've already spent thousands on the dress, storage, and alterations. It just seemed like nickel and diming at the end of the process. I did ask to speak to the manager and she stressed that they mentioned the promotions before booking the initial appointment and in the email confirmation of the appointment. She did make accommodations for me which I appreciate. Overall, my experience with Bella was good and the people there are very friendly and helpful. I went to several bridal shops in the Minneapolis area and Bella was the only one who had the style dress I was looking for in my price range.
