I had a great experience finding my dress at Belle Saison back in November of last year. I almost cancelled my appointment at Belle Saison because I had already tried 4 or 5 other places that weekend and was tired of looking. I am so glad I decided to go instead! I was helped by Brittany and she steered me toward several options (and eventually, "the dress!"). Brittany was great at only showing you dresses within your budget and was never pushy. The first time I went into Belle Saison I actually went by myself, so Brittany was very helpful in providing feedback on the dresses and I was able to narrow it down before I came back with my mom. Some may be put off by the fact that Belle Saison does not have an in-house seamstress like many other bridal boutiques do. However, I came to realize why this is actually a plus. My particular dress (a Maggie Sottero) came in both a "long" length and a "short" length. So I was actually able to order the short length and not have to have any alterations on the length of the dress (which can run you several hundred dollars). I was never offered the option to purchase a "short" length dress at any other boutique, so part of me thinks the other boutiques only offer one length for a dress so that people will spend money having it altered by their in-house seamstresses. Plus Belle Saison recommended an outside seamstress who did a wonderful job on my dress!
I HIGHLY recommend Belle Saison to any bride who is looking for the perfect dress and the best customer service! On the morning of my appointment, Belle Saison was extremely accommodating to my unexpected circumstances. My mother and I had a flat tire before embarking on our two-hour drive to the salon, which caused us to be over 30 minutes late to my appointment. My consultant, Brittany, went above and beyond to rearrange her schedule to accommodate me! She worked tirelessly with me for NEARLY 3 HOURS to find the dress of my dreams! Brittany's level of patience and devotion to her work is unsurpassed. She truly is passionate about helping brides find the perfect dress. Brittany listened to my likes and dislikes, and patiently guided me to find the dress which was an exact match to my preferences. The salon has a HUGE SELECTION of high quality, yet affordable bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses. Thanks to Brittany, I know I will feel like a princess on my wedding day in my beautiful Madeline Gardner gown from Belle Saison!
Great selection, not stuffyReviewed on 11/01/2015 Krystal M
I purchased my wedding gown from Belle Saison after visiting a few other bridal salons in Austin, TX. From the moment I walked in, they made me feel welcome and comfortable and the person helping me focused their complete attention on me and helping me find the dress of my dreams. Jessica was honest and kind in her dress suggestions. I recommend getting the dress care package to ensure your dress stays clean and beautiful throughout the bridal portrait, wedding, and preservation process.
Belle Saison has A LOT of great dresses to choose from and I did end up buying my wedding dress there. However, I was measured completely wrong and ended up purchasing a dress that was a couple of sizes too small. When the girl told me that I should order a size 4 it didn't seem right but I trusted her judgement, since it's her job. I got my dress in and I couldn't even zip it. I found a great seamstress and $650 later I fit into my dress. I would just say trust your instincts when ordering a size but they do have a lot of great dress options.
Best bridal salon in Austin, hands down! Their selection of gowns is very vast with a large variety of designers, styles, and prices. While trying on dresses, the young woman helping me was great about listening to my likes and dislikes to help narrow down the search and she ultimately pulled the perfect gown for me. They are polite and patient, and most importantly very mindful of my price point. We also ended up getting my bridesmaid's gowns from there as well. All the dresses come in on time, if not early, and all were very reasonably priced. I definitely recommend making your first appointment here before anywhere else!
My first appointment to pick out my dress went effortlessly. I had already looked at some Stella York dresses, so I knew that was the designer I wanted to go with. They immediately pointed me to the right direction and I picked out three dresses to try on. They also picked out three more similar styles by different designers. After trying on all six dresses (just to be sure), I knew I wanted to go with the second option. The checkout process went smoothly and I ended up getting a matching veil as well. For my second appointment, when I tried on my dress it was a little tighter than I would have liked. They referred me to an alterations place and they were able to let out the dress just enough so it fit perfectly for the wedding.
After a full day of bridal shop hopping with 6 lady friends this was our last stop. The amazing thing is I had appointments at the other places and felt not prepared for me so when we called Bella Saison last minute and let us come in on a same day book and made me feel special was a true breath of fresh air. I had so many options I loved them all. I found my dress on the third try and it truly was my dream dress ! Not to mention great price and you get a bottle of champagne!
I ordered my dress this past weekend and Ms Faith did a wonderful job at helping me make my decision. This was my first and only bridal store and I was eager to find a dress. She was really patient with me because I didn’t realize I lasted two hours at that store. When I went through numerous dresses all different types and when she picked the one I eventually chose she let me keep it on with no rush until I was ready to take it off. I had so much fun with her! Thumbs up to faith!
Beautiful selection and Sarah was helpful without being pushy. They even gift you a bottle of bubbly when you say yes to the dress!!
I worked with Amy to find my perfect dress. She listened to what I wanted but also pulled dresses that she knew would look good on my figure. She was very helpful. The price was reasonable for the dress. I loved the little boutique. I had trouble finding dresses with straps and they seemed to have a lot of everything in a reasonable price range. They also helped recommend a tailor for alterations. I paid a little extra and they stored my dress, took it to and from the tailor, steamed it the week of the wedding, and preserved it after the big day. I also got my bridesmaid dresses here. The dresses were gorgeous and fit everyone well. Plus, they give a discount if you got your dress there too. With the discount the price was the same as David's Bridal plus had a much better fit and better quality material.
I found the dress of my dreams at Belle Saison Bridal! I went to 5 different stores around Austin area and found the perfect dress here. I'm petite, so I had a very difficult time finding gowns. I am only 5'2 ft. The lace all over the dress has a unique pattern which would've been ruinned if the dress was cut straight across. However, Belle Saison was able to order my dress with specific measurements for my height! How awesome is that?! The dress arrived few months after and it was absolutely stunning. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience at the store. I decided not to do alterations with the recommended seamstress given mixed opinions on reviews. I went to an independent seamstress, one of the best in the area - Victoria McLane (512-665-4674). I highly recommend her!!!
DO NOT BUY BRIDESMAID DRESSES FROM HERE. My wedding is a couple months away, and my bridesmaids are now stuck with huge dresses that will need excessive alterations. When I addressed Belle Saison with the issue, the response I received basically told me that I was out of luck and there was absolutely nothing they could do to fix this. No exchanges, returns, or help with alterations. My consultant had told me that the Bill Levkoff dresses run a couple sizes small, she even made me change a couple dresses to a larger size. Once we got the dresses, every single one of them was significantly larger. The very smallest size ordered will have to be taken in, and my bridesmaid that ordered this size has a large chest area. The Bill Levkoff size chart has given many people problems (look on any wedding forum) and they notoriously run large. I trusted my consultants advice, got completely inaccurate info, and now have a stressful situation before my wedding that they will not attempt to make right. Very disappointing.
I had a great experience at Belle Saison! I went to this shop because they had a designer that I absolutely loved. I went to one other shop prior and actually thought I found "the dress", but it wasn't my favorite Pinterest pin (which was at Belle Saison). I tried on the dress that I've been eyeing for months and was a little disappointed that I didn't have that moment. However the girl that was helping me (I forget her name) asked me what was missing about the dress. I told her and she said "I have one more I'd like you to try on". I tried on her suggestion, which was a mix between the dress from the other shop and my Pinterest dream dress, and didn't want to take it off! I'm so grateful that the staff know their inventory like the back of their hand or I would have missed out on my perfect dress! I absolutely recommend going here while dress shopping!
I bought my dress here for my wedding in February. I am so happy I chose this dress shop. I had waited too late to order a dress and the staff here went above and beyond to help me get the perfect dress in time for my wedding. They were so flexible with making time to meet with me even though I was completely clueless about the dress buying process. I was very impressed with the wide range of styles and price points this shop offers.
I can't speak enough about the great experience I had here! Beautiful dresses in general, and a larger selection of plus-size dresses than I have seen at most major chains. I came in with very little idea of what I wanted, and my consultant, Faith, was patient as I tried on pretty much every variety of gown that exists in the world. I found a vintage-inspired A-line gown that I loved, but Faith put the icing on the cake when she paired the dress with a stunning lace jacket. I came in 2 more times after that to be SURE that this was my dress, and each time the staff was happy to help. I suggest buying their dress care package, as well - they steamed the dress for me before my bridals and before the wedding, transported my dress to and from the alterations location, and sent the dress off for preservation. A great local Austin shop for any bride!!
Belle Saison was amazing. I truly could not have asked for a more fantastic experience. I was nervous, I'm sure normally so, to search for such an important dress. I can be very self critical and also terrible committing to decisions. Everyone at Belle Saison made my experience flawless and smooth. With just a few words, my attendant was able to find EXACTLY what I had always dreamed of and envisioned. It was all around a great experience. Pricing was reasonable and they give great deals and specials. Customer service from the owner down to the greeter was perfection.greetegreetperfection. I
When I walked into my appointment at Belle Saison, I was completely blown away by their selection! Brittany listened to what I liked, looked at a few photos that I showed her, and had an immediate sense of what I was looking for. The third or fourth dress I tried on ended up being the one I chose! I went back and purchased it the next day! I appreciated Brittany's honesty and she is very talented at being able to help a bride choose the right dress! I am also very impressed with how my gown preservation turned out, so I definitely recommend using that service as well! The only aspect I recommend against is purchasing the dress care package. The only alterations service that comes with the dress package is through Nelda's Tailors, and I had a very negative experience with my dress alterations. I can't speak for the other alterations services that Belle Saison recommends, but I suggest trying a different place or finding your own place. But overall, I have nothing but positive things to say about Belle Saison!
I bought my dress from Belle Saison and couldn't be happier with the entire experience. It was the very first place I went to look and ended up purchasing the very first dress I tried on. The staff were all so sweet and helpful throughout the entire process. I purchased the dress care package through them as well, which I highly recommend. I loved working with this Bridal Saloon and would recommend anyone who is looking, stop by Belle Saison!
I had a pretty good experience with Belle Saison. I got lucky and loved the first dress I tried on. I tried on several others for my mom and friends. They have a huge selection to choose from and have options to store your dress as well. My friend also purchased her wedding dress from Belle Saison!
Belle Saison had a wide variety of dresses to choose from with reasonable prices. I ended up buying the first dress I tried on. The staff was very helpful and kind. I highly recommend them!
I had a great experience at Belle Saison Bridal and Amy. I didn't end up buying my dress here but I still wanted to write a review because of the fabulous customer service. I will definitely be coming back to shop for accessories.
Without going into great detail. I definitely did not get the warm and fuzzies when I went into this salon. I was greeted but no one seemed that happy. I know time is important in a place like that at this time of year but I fely rushed from the second I walked in. I was asked what style I was looking for but when I said I wanted to try on a few styles it was like I was being silly... The girl who I was working with ended up picking out a dress that was perfect for me and she chose accessories that went with it too but there wasn't a lot of talking, she was sweet but not what I would call friendly. She didn't interact with my family at all. There was no unfriendliness just nothing that made me feel special. I ended up buying my dress and accessories while I was there and I'm completely happy with my choice but the whole experience was like 40minutes long (finding dresses, trying them on, measurements, paying...). I feel like you should have an experience, a great one, doing something like choosing a wedding dress. Many of us only get to do it once and it should feel special!
Belle Saison was wonderfulReviewed on 1/01/2016 Nicole V
My mom and I went to several different bridal stores to find my dress. I actually found my dress at a salon in Boston, but was able to order it here in Austin. Yanna was so sweet and very helpful. Everyone is very helpful and nice.
I highly recommend this store to brides! This was the very first store I went to and is where I ended up buying my dress. Faith, my consultant, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and professional. There is an excellent selection here and it appeared they had dresses of all styles. My style was ballroom and I believe what they call mermaid/low drop waist. Tight up top and then puffs out above the knee with ruffles. I had an excellent selection to choose from in my price range. I was not wanting to spend more than 2k on a dress and thought that would be difficult. Turns out a lot of stores in Austin have an excellent selection from $1,200-$1,800. The salon is extremely clean and organized. One of the things I loved most about this salon was the set up. Each bride gets a dressing room and stage with chairs for their family and friends to sit. Having our own area to look at dresses and discuss them was amazing. Some of the other stores we went to were very crowded with a row of dressing rooms and one giant mirror for all the brides to funnel to and look at themselves in. It made us appreciate this set up a lot.
I absolutely would not recommend Belle Saison to any bride I know. My experience was incredibly unpleasant. I had an appointment for a Saturday afternoon right after lunch. I arrived 20 minutes or so early because we finished lunch a little early. I understood I would not be helped right away as my consultant was still with a previous appointment. They said my party and I could look around to get a feel of the dress styles so I could tell my consultant. Once my appointment time came, the consultant was still not available. The woman at the front desk that greeted me then gave me a handful of ribbons to place on the hangers of dresses I wanted to try on, so my party and I went through the store and picked 4 dresses I wanted to try on. The consultant finally came over, gathered the dresses, put them in the dressing room, had me undress and then decided that would be a good time to tell me the only dresses I could actually try on were 40 (give or take some) dresses along a front wall because I am a size 10 in bridal (my normal dress size is 6/8). She tried to explain they had all the dresses that I originally picked in larger sample sizes, which was a lie. She walked me up and down the wall twice and there was not one dress out of the 4 I previously picked that I could actually try on. The consultant provided no guidance whatsoever. I was basically my own consultant. My consultant did not seem to have any "expert" knowledge of the bridal industry on the gowns she was attempting to show me. I don't know how long she has been as BSB, but she did mention she had another (completely unrelated) career prior to working at BSB. The store is general was also dirty and dingy. For claiming they are one of the best bridal salons in Austin, the condition of their store does not come close to portraying that. Every single shoe on display had visible dirt parks in the shape of a foot. If you're looking for a true bridal gown shopping experience where your consultant has vast knowledge of the designers, dresses, etc., Belle Saison Bridal is not the boutique for you. I'm thankful I had an appointment prior to my appointment as BSB or I would have been completely discouraged to go to any other salon in fear of receiving the same poor service.
