Bianka Bridal Treated Me Like A Princess

Reviewed on 2/18/2015 Kylie O

I cannot say enough great things about my experiences at Bianka Bridal! First of all; I am a plus sized Bride. In the midst of wedding dress shopping I had been so discouraged until I came to Bianka Bridal. The consultants made me feel so comfortable & stunning...the way a Bride... Read More should feel! The consultants bent over backwards to show me their wide selection & once I found THE DRESS, they let me try on veils, jewelry and everything to complete the look. They were so kind and we had so much fun. Not only did they make my experience fun and easy; they made me feel like any other normal bride, even though I'm plus sized. We talked about how alterations could be done and the fact that I could do a corset back: an idea to die for! I had never thought of that until they told me & I said yes instantly! Once we ordered my dress I kept in contact with the consultants on the shipping status of my dress. One of the owners gave me her personal number and allows me to text her whenever I need to! To sum it up: the women at Bianka Bridal are knowledgable, sweet, hard working, and willing to go to the ends of the earth to make their Brides happy! I will recommend them till the day I die. Cheers ladies!! You helped me in this process to make my wedding day the best day of my life. I am forever grateful to you! XOXO ❤️

The only word that comes to mind when I think about my experience at Bianka Bridal is WOW. The ladies there really do want to help you find the dress that makes you feel the most beautiful and I think that's so amazing. I wish there was an option to give more than 5 stars!!!

Where do I even start? BIANKA Bridal honestly made my entire engagment better. They are some of the kindest, funniest, most supportive and HELPFUL women I've met. I thank the stars above for directing me to them just for my Hayley dress but instead I found a group of about 5... Read More women who are now my friends. They care about you more than just a dress sale, they want to get to know you, understand your vision, help you with advice or opinions with your planning because they genuinely care about their brides - we are not just a number to them, we ARE them. I could not imagine my wedding planning/engagement period without them and anyone looking for a magical dress and some incredible women, don't hesitate - get there asap.

Bianka Bridal has amazing gowns from amazing designers. The most unique, gorgeous gowns you will find in the area (or anywhere within a 2 hour+ radius!). Coming from New Jersey and moving to Michigan I was fearful of finding an amazing boutique that would ave the perfect gown.... Read More Upon meeting Lizzie R. at Bianka I knew I was going to "Say Yes to the Dress" not only is she awesome at what she does, she will help you find the exact gown to describe to her without having you try on tons, she stays within your budget and to top it off she is the sweetest soul and makes you feel like the most beautiful bride!!! Thanks Lizzie, you are amazing! The only negative in my review would be to management, aside from Lizzie and your other assistants with warm personalities, the rest of the boutique is a bit cold. No offerings of champagne or anyone wanting to speak to you. Please work on fixing this issue with your otherwise spectacular boutique! Thank you for the perfect gown and wonderful bridal assistant, Lizzie!

I had a really mixed experience. The staff was friendly, they have a good selection, but I had a HORRIBLE experience with their in-house seamstress. She was very rude, not easy to work with, and her work on dress was sub-par (seams not hidden, bustle did not hold up through the... Read More reception, stitching holding the lace started to snap). She continually complained that my dress was too difficult to alter. My bridesmaid's were all in Hayley Paige dresses ($280). The top of the dresses were held together with a clasp, and all 7 dresses had ripped by the start of the reception and had to be held together with string. Also, be aware of the sizing as my dress and 3 of my bridesmaids had the wrong size ordered (making for expensive alterations). Overall, I would not recommend going here. For the price of the dresses (both bridal and bridesmaid) I would expect much higher quality!

Set up a final fitting to pick up my gown and they "suddenly" lost my gown 3 weeks before our wedding. They offered no back up no solution. Rosy said it was my problem to find another at the boutique or she offered me to go elsewhere and would send me a check in the mail if... Read More they could figure out what happened to my dress..... Holy Crap who does that to a bride after spending thousands of dollars. I had to go to Chicago where I found a dress. Please save yourself the hassle and fear!!! I was left with no empathy and a void no one should have to deal with,I over heard one of the ownersdaughter that works there said she wasn't sure it had even come in when they had called me, they were hoping it would have been in because it was getting so close.

The ladies at Bianka are amazing!!!! They helped me find my DREAM dress with accessories, and made me feel like I was part of their family. Now that my wedding is over I'm actually super sad that I don't get to go there anymore. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!

Bianka Bridal is easily the best decision I've made thus far in my wedding planning journey. The dresses are absolutely beautiful and I can't speak highly enough of the amazing staff! They listen to you and go all out to help you! Go to Bianka Bridal, you won't be disappointed!

So excited to be a Bianka Bride! I knew as soon as it was time to plan my first dress shopping experience, that we had to go to Bianka Bridal as I am obsessed with Hayley Paige. We were their last appointment on Friday afternoon so we had the salon to ourselves. Lizzie was... Read More amazing! She listened to what I wanted and pulled the gowns I told her I loved. She also pulled some that I never would have tried on but wound up loving! My group of girls, Lizzie, and Maria (one of the owners) all cheered as I said yes to my Hayley Paige dream dress. Thank you so much girls! You made my day a dream!

I felt so uncomfortable at my appointment at Bianka. I literally couldn't wait to leave. I didn't even want to try on the rest I had picked out. The woman that helped me was rude to my mom and told me I was being ridiculous because I didn't like a certain neckline. There were...

If you are looking for a wedding dress Bianka Bridal is the place!!! They have the best selection, prices and the staff is so helpful, professional and friendly. My daughter loved the first dress she tried on but, since Bianka was the first store we visited we decided to visit... Read More a few other stores before making our final selection.

Bianka was my first wedding dress shopping experience. I felt very very uncomfortable. Katia was helping me and she barely said two words the entire time. I was not in love with any of the dresses but liked one. She made me feel pressured into buying it. Dress shopping was... Read More nothing like I imagined but I bought the dress because I thought if this was what wedding dress shopping was like I didn't want to do it for another second. When I came back to pick up my dress I expressed my concerns about the fit. In the first appt I expressed how I liked the way the dress was tight and form fitting. I knew it was a size too small but Katìa never mentioned that the dress is actually supposed to just drape and that once my size comes in, the one thing I really loved about the dress would go away. When I expressed this to the girls at my fitting I was ignored and just told it would all work out. I called back a few days later only to have Katìa say extremely rude things to me. I was nothing but kind through the entire process and just wanted to be done with the shop. I ended up having a full day of dress shopping thanks to my mom who wanted me to have the experience most brides have and I did! It was wonderful and I found the dress of my dreams thanks to a wonderful staff at The Gown Shop in Ann Arbor. I took a huge hit on my dress from Bianka unfortunately. While wedding planning I had several companies who have worked with them also tell me stories about how rude they are and how they really dislike working with Bianka. There are so many amazing shops that deserve business... They do not!
