Bliss Bridal is one of those rare gems that you hope to find when you start searching for your wedding gown. After having a disappointing experience at another local bridal shop, I figured I would give Bliss a try. I had not heard anything about it before, but I was really... Read More impressed with their website. During my first visit, Jess helped me pick out my wedding gown. She listened to what I was looking for in a dress and offered really good suggestions for what I would look good in. She also asked many questions about the wedding itself, and how I wanted my dress to fit into the overall look of the event. She was really interested in what I was saying, and I never got the sense that she was just trying to make a sale. I loved the fact that they let you look through the dresses and tag the items you would like to try on. After having such a positive experience with my wedding gown, it made the most sense to get the bridesmaids dresses, the mother of the occasion dress, and all of the tuxedos from Bliss. All of these looked absolutely stunning on our wedding day! From start to finish, I was impressed with every aspect of my dealings with Bliss. I mainly worked with Raquel, Shannon, and Jess. These ladies are professional, compassionate, and kind to the core. I have already recommended Bliss Bridal to everyone I know that is getting married, and I will continue to do so!

I have been married now almost 7 months and I can not stop raving about how incredible Bliss Bridal is. Every bride deserves to have an experience like the one they provide. When I begin my wedding dress seach, I visited Bliss Bridal with my bridesmaids, my mother and future... Read More mother in law. The boutique was beauiful with a great selection of gorgeous wedding gowns and also offered that warm charm that makes you feel at ease. Jessica was impeccable! She was very sweet, friendly, and patient. She asked a lot of questions to get to know me, my venue, and the way I envisioned my wedding day. The layout is such that you feel quite private with your group and you don't feel like you are competing for space.What I absolutely loved most was that Jessica was very attentive and showed me dresses that I had picked out and then as I told her what I loved and didn't love so much about each dress she listened and brought a new one that narrowed down what I was looking for. She was never pushy and only encouraged me to be super honest with her. She truly only cared about me finding the dress of my dreams. I felt like she was on my side the entire time and she really helped ease my nerves.I tried on about 6 different dresses and was able to narrow it down. This second appointment was no different, and Jessica still made me feel special in every way. She placed both dresses next to each other so I could see what I loved about each dress and explained any options I had to alter which ever dress I picked so that I could have everything I wanted. I found exactly what I was looking for and I was able to say yes to the dress! I never thought I would say this, but I truly felt like the most beautiful bride! Fast forward a few months out from our wedding. I went for another appointment where they helped me find a beautiful veil and accesories to pair with my dress. Joyce in alterations was so wonderful. She truly is a master at her craft. Everything from bridesmaids to my dress was perfect and I could not have asked for a better experience in the wedding planning process!

My bridesmaids and I had a great experience at Bliss Bridal. I accidentally booked a bridal appointment instead of bridesmaids, but they just rolled with it and were able to accommodate us. Our rep was amazing - so helpful, honest with advice and really listened to what we... Read More wanted. She helped us find a line of dresses that looked great on everyone. The dresses came in ahead of schedule! Customer service is A+.

Macanna took the stress out of accessory shopping and made it so easy and fun! I had actually "accidentally" found my dream Allure wedding dress at a sample sale 2 years before my wedding (3 year engagement), so by the time I got around to making an accessory appointment 1 year... Read More later, I was so overwhelmed by all the different veils, headpieces, jewelry and belts and had no idea what I wanted or what would complement my perfect dress. Macanna brought out all different style veils and truly listened to my feedback as I formed opinions. Each choice was closer to how I wanted to look and feel until we found the perfect combination of accessories! I never even once left the fitting room to look at the options for myself because I knew I would get stressed by information overload. She made the decision so easy because she listened so well to both my words and body language. My family had so much fun dressing up their first granddaughter/ only daughter and we love that Macanna is now forever a part of our special memories!

We had a great experience at Bliss Bridal. Sandy, Jess, and everyone else were very friendly and helpful, and made my mother and me feel very welcome. The shop is cozy and relaxing, and the process was very simple and straightforward – you get to look through the dresses... Read More yourself first and choose a few to try, then as you narrow down your ideas your consultant brings you others in a similar style to look at. The prices are clearly marked, so there is no awkwardness. We never felt rushed or pressured to buy, and I made my decision during my second appointment. My dress and veil were beautiful, they came in on time (in fact, earlier than estimated), the alterations were done on time, everything happened without a hitch. My mom was so pleased that she decided to get her dress here too. The only thing I might have done differently was to look into other options for alterations, to get a better sense of the usual pricing; however, it was very convenient to have everything done in one place. I’m very happy that we went with Bliss!

Love this place! Everyone working there is upbeat, happy, and willing to help. I found my wedding gown and veil at Bliss and was so happy with the entire process from trying on to the final fitting! Would highly recommend Bliss to anyone!

My experience at Bliss can best be described as a “tale of two shops”. In short, we had an amazing experience working with Jess and Sandy to find the dress. However, our alterations experience was a bit of a nightmare. It is my understanding that the alterations department is... Read More considered separate from the store, but they are the recommended alterations team and we were assigned a seamstress through them so I still feel they are somewhat responsible for the team they recommend. Everything worked out in the end, and I felt amazing in my gown on my wedding day, but I feel I have to be honest and share my entire experience with other brides. As I said, looking for the dress at Bliss was a great experience. I had gone to a few other stores, and found Bliss had the best selection of dresses for the fairest price. I went back multiple times to try on dresses and Jess and Sandy never once rushed me and always gave their honest opinions. Every time we walked into the store we were greeted warmly and made to feel very comfortable. Dress shopping, which at times could be stressful, was always a pleasant and fun experience! I ended up choosing an Essence of Australian gown with matching veil and couldn’t have been happier with my selection! When it came to fittings, I had my initial consultation with Blanca which went fine. The day of my second fitting, I received a call from Blanca saying that she wasn’t finished with my dress yet and needed more time because it needed a lot of work and she “didn’t know what she was going to do yet”. Now, as a bride 2 weeks out from my wedding, this comment sent off alarms in my head and made me feel very anxious going into the fitting a few days later. When I put the dress on, it was still too big on me and needed more work done to the bustle. Blanca became very defensive when I asked for it to be taken in, and kept saying “this is where I pinned it”. However, she did finally agree to take it in more and we set up a time for me to come in 3 days from then (10 days from my wedding day). At the next appointment, she had taken in the dress towards the top, but the original silhouette was fitted through the hips with a gentle flow. The dress I had on had a very different looking silhouette than what I had tried on initially. I was very upset by this and Blanca again was defensive about our questions on why it didn’t look like the original, and even confronted my mom about calling Sandy to let her know what was going on, asking “what you don’t think I know what I’m doing?”. We felt very uncomfortable and frustrated that instead of working with us to get the dress to look how we wanted, we instead felt like we had to fight with her to get things altered to our liking. I even became emotional during the appointment because I felt so defeated that I wasn’t going to be able to have the dress I had been picturing for the past 6 months. Sandy stepped in at that point and suggested that to make the silhouette closer to the sample dress we have Blanca sew the layers of tulle underneath together. Luckily, at the final fitting everything was done perfectly. All in all, if it wasn’t for Jess and Sandy and the amazing sales team at Bliss, this review would be very different. My honest recommendation to future brides is to ABSOLUTELY buy your dress through Bliss Bridal, but have your alterations done elsewhere.

All of the ladies as Bliss were a joy to work with! They were right along side me from picking out my perfect dress to alterations & getting it cleaned. They even helped my mother-in-law find a dress when it seemed like no one else in the tri-state area could! They have great...

The girls at Bliss Bridal were super sweet. They talked to me about my vision for my wedding and every time I came back asked me how the process was going. Overall, my dress came out beautifully and they were very sensitive to my bridesmaids' needs (my sister has a tough time... Read More dress shopping because of her body type). Only a couple hiccups. The first being when I came back for a second look to choose between two dresses, someone had written down the wrong dress ID and I had to go through the racks to find my dress all over again. But I will say their selection is well organized, so it wasn't difficult to find. The second was when I came back to try on my dress and the sides had been taken in too much. But Joyce literally pieced the dress together while I was in it to correct the fit and when it was done, it was flawless. You couldn't even tell.

Watch out for this shop. They ruined my dress and took no responsibility.

If any place of business deserves zero stars, it’s Bliss Bridal. As soon as I put on the dress that was supposedly custom-tailored and made to fit me by one of the seamstresses employed by Bliss Bridal, Joyce, it was obvious that something had gone terribly wrong. The dress was... Read More a good six inches too long. My wedding planners had to pin up the bottom of my dress, which is obvious in every professional picture that was taken, and ruined the effect of the lace hem of the dress. I also missed most of my cocktail hour trying in vain to fix the dress. That is something which, as every bride knows, is invaluable. When I called Jessica Boni, owner of Bliss Bridal, after my wedding, her response was something to the effect of, “the dress was fine at your last fitting.” Had I been allowed to try the dress on when I picked it up, the problem with the hem could have been discovered and fixed. Jessica told me that I needed to handle the problem directly with Joyce. Jessica took no responsibility whatsoever for the problems I had with the dress. I was willing to deal directly with Joyce, however, Joyce refused to return my calls. Jessica arranged for me to bring the dress in so that she and Joyce could see what had gone wrong. Joyce was immediately nasty, belligerent, and refused to even look at the dress. She accused me of having my fittings in stiletto heels!!! When I showed Joyce the shoes I had at the fittings, she responded that I was some kind of "scam artist," and that this sort of thing happens a couple of times a year. Would a scam artist have professional photos taken in a dress showing that it was pinned up? Joyce refused to be reasonable, or even logical about the issues with my dress. When I explained to her how it would be ridiculous for me to wear heels that would make me appear taller than my husband at my wedding, she said something to the effect of, “what you do after you leave the store is not my problem.” I do not understand what happened, or why there was an issue with the length of the dress after alterations had been done. I am not a seamstress, but my educated guess is that when Joyce moved the belt of the dress after my final fitting, the material that she lazily gathered underneath rather than cutting it from the dress was let out. This guess is based on the fact that Joyce told me she had removed no material from the dress with which she could have made sleeves, which I had requested for her to do. I won my case in small claims court against Bliss Bridal, but that is nothing compared to the agony of having what is supposed to be a perfect day ruined by an incompetent seamstress and irresponsible and unapologetic store owners. Steer clear of Bliss Bridal.
