Hands Down the Best Experience!Reviewed on 5/20/2014 Ablaza L
There are so many great things about this Bridal Boutique. Everyone has this vision in their head of how the experience will be when trying on wedding gowns. If you watch Say Yes to the Dress, you see that you walk into a room, tell someone your dream dress, they pull the dress and then you walk out and make an entrance to your loved ones. Well i went to a couple of other shops and it was a hot mess! But at Blue Bridal, it was such a great experience. The shop itself is so beautiful and organized. The dress selection is amazing. You get your own little room to try on, with an assistant, and you get to come out and stand in front of a beautiful mirror on a pedestal. They were all so sweet and when i found the one, they put a veil on and gave us champagne! It was the best experience and we were all in tears! Everyone deserves to have that experience!
Amazing shop and service - thanks, Jaime!Reviewed on 4/24/2014 Grace L
My time at Blue Bridal was phenomenal and I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Jaime. I had a lot of anxiety about trying on dresses and being fussed over, and had put it off for a while. The stress and intimidation of finding “the most important dress of your life OMG!” had left me very apprehensive about the whole process. But Jaime alleviated all that trepidation with her patience, positive attitude, and great suggestions. They have a great selection at the boutique, and Jaime was very attuned to exactly what I wanted, pulling gowns that fitted my taste perfectly, and occasionally slipping a belt or a veil on to complete the look (it’s amazing what those little touches can do!). She helped me find the perfect dress and was a pleasure to work with. I wish she could be with me for every shopping trip - bridal or not :)
Best Bridal Store EverReviewed on 4/12/2014 Stephanie B
I've been to a handful of bridal stores, big box and small, and Blue Bridal Boutique has by far been the best. We received such personal, caring and authentic service. The big box stores overwhelm you and don't care about your actual look, and some other boutiques aren't conscious of your budget. Blue Bridal took care of me and my mother, got to know me, respected my budget, and found me THE perfect dress. Our associate Jaime Weak was so sweet and relaxing throughout the entire process. I recommend all brides to start looking for their dress here. My only regret is I can't use them for more than my dress! They are so so great. ***EDIT*** I'm editing my review after visiting Blue Bridal again to get a veil, to sing their praises again! I had an AWFUL experience with a tailor in NYC who almost ruined my dress, and Jaime was so sweet in helping me stay calm and figure out next steps. I also bought the wrong veil, being pressured by the same people who sent me to the bad tailor. Jaime found me the perfect veil for half the price and double the quality. She made sure I walked out with it since my wedding is quickly approaching. Jaime and the Blue Bridal team have done more for me in 20 minutes than any of my vendors in NYC have done in three months. They have been my favorite part of wedding planning and I highly recommend you visit them!
Yes to the Dress!Reviewed on 11/19/2015 Pete F
I had a wonderful experience with Joanna Botts! She made me feel very comfortable and my mom was pleased with her assistance. We were able to face time with my sister, she was able to share the moment with us. I never felt rushed or hurried. She was very good at understanding what my likes and dislikes were after trying on a few. When I said Yes to the dress, it was a magical moment. When Joanna had me step out on the pedestal in the middle of the foyer in the back, I felt like a princess! I was able to buy the dress as is. It was a perfect fit, except take a few inches off the bottom. It was a great deal, I felt I couldn't pass it up. The champagne that was provided was a nice touch. Before we left I received names and numbers to help with alterations and dry cleaning. You deserve the Knot award!
We had a wonderful shopping experience at Blue. The girls were very patient as I wandered around the store trying to get an idea of how comfortable different dresses were. My only complaint is that the quality of the construction and fabrics wasn't quite as high as I expected it to be from a boutique like this.
Best of the bestReviewed on 10/09/2015
Can't say enough good things about Blue Bridal! The women are so friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to make your appointment special! The ladies have a strong product knowledge and answered all of my many dress questions! So glad I chose my dress at Blue Bridal!
LOVE Blue BridalReviewed on 8/27/2015 Teddi N
I wish Blue Bridal sold regular clothes so that I had an excuse to go there all the time. The two times I have gone to Blue Bridal have been the best shopping experience of any kind. They gals there are nice, personable, and they are honest about what looks good and what we should put back on the rack. They were so helpful in helping me find my perfect dress (even suggesting that I come back for a trunk show months later instead of just settling for something the first time) and I couldn't be happier.
WONDERFUL Exprience!!Reviewed on 8/27/2015 Lauren J
Loved the location, the atmosphere and the staff! WONDERFUL experience. Had so much fun trying on dresses and they had the EXACT one I had been eyeballing for months :) FABULOUS shop!
Great Experience, Lovely Dresses, Right Price!Reviewed on 6/12/2015 Kendall S
I went to Blue Bridal in Austin after dress shopping in Houston. I found a designer that I liked (Justin Alexander) and an internet search found that they carried that designer in Austin. The salon was small and lovely. They had great music playing and the stylists were attentive but not pushy. I went to try on two dresses that I had narrowed my search to. It was easy to call and make an appointment and though the space is small they accommodated me, my mom and future mother and sister-in-law easily. Even though I had only made an appointment to try those two dresses (which they had pulled and were waiting on me) they let me browse and look at more to try on. When I "said yes to the dress" they treated my group all to a champagne toast. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend to Austin brides to shop there!
The best period! I couldn't have asked for a better experience; they really make you feel special! The staff is over the top nice and know what they are doing. My consultant was so patient and really listened. The first dress she pulled ended up being the one! When you say yes to the dress, they give you a glass of champagne to celebrate and let you hang out and just really enjoy your dress for little. I have called several times to ask a few questions since my first visit and they have been nothing but helpful. Blue Bridal Boutique of Austin is definitely the best and I would recommend them to anyone!
Adorable Boutique with Sweet ManagerReviewed on 5/26/2015 Kali B
I LOVED my experience at Blue Bridal! I couldn't have hoped for better if I tried :) Joanna was insanely helpful and kind and really made our time there helpful, fun, and productive. They seemed to have a ton of different styles and options. They were incredibly respectful of my budget and gave me a uniquely personal experience! Poor Joanna was helping me in and out of what felt like a million dresses and she was so sweet the entire time. When I went back to try on THE DRESS one more time, everyone there was super sweet and gave my mom and I plenty of space to think and decide, while still being available and helpful. As a bonus, they offered us a champagne toast when I said "yes" to the dress. There was actually another girl there at the same time as me who also said "yes", so there was a bunch of celebrating going on that morning! Overall, great people, super cute store, and lots of dress options.. what more could you want? :)
Much more than I expected!!Reviewed on 4/30/2015 Ashley T
Hailey and the girls were absolutely fantastic! This was my first attempt at finding a dress and guess what, I found one!! They were completely respectful of my budget and made the whole experience so fun and relaxing! I tried another place before I scampered straight back to buy my dress with Blue. Nowhere else compares in my book. There was zero pressure but lots of celebrating. I definitely felt like I was among (well-informed!) friends! I definitely recommend them!!
BLUE BRIDAL IS AMAZING!Reviewed on 3/21/2015 Lacey S
Blue Bridal was the first and last place I went while shopping for my wedding gown. The dresses are absolutely gorgeous, and the service at Blue Bridal is amazing! The owner, Ruthie, is a sweet soul. She is such a special person, and she makes you feel beautiful! I am absolutely in LOVE with my dress and with Blue Bridal! I would recommend it to everyone! You'll save yourself a lot of time! :)
LOVEEE blue bridal!!Reviewed on 3/10/2015 Lexanne K
I could not have asked for a better gown shopping experience at blue bridal. The staff was so accomodating and the atmosphere is almost unbeatable. I would HIGHLY recommend going there if you are looking for a true bridal experience when it comes to shopping for your wedding gown.
Love this Boutique!Reviewed on 3/06/2015 Tiffany C
Blue Bridal Boutique was the first place I went to and it is where I found THE dress! I couldn't believe I found it so early on in my search (totally not like me) but, when you know you know! Ruthie was so incredibly sweet and helpful. I really didn't know what I wanted, but she made it so easy and she was right on point! It is the perfect dress for me! I think it was the 4th or 5th dress I tried on. For a bride who can be very picky and indecisive, it couldn't have been easier. I would recommend them to any bride I know.
Blue Bridal!Reviewed on 3/06/2015 Madeline P
Blue Bridal did a phenomenal job of helping me find my dream dress! I could not be more happy with their services and helping me make my final decision. I would recommend Blue Bridal to anyone because they have a variety of dresses that are all high quality and the employees are great at finding dresses within your budget. They made the process easy and fun!
Great Experience!Reviewed on 3/06/2015 Heather Z
Ruthie and Joanna at Blue Bridal were so great to work with! I had been on a few appointments for dress shopping in both Austin and Dallas and not only did I love the dresses that Blue carried but their customer service was exceptional! I can't wait to wear the dress that I found at Blue at my wedding this Fall!
Great shop!Reviewed on 1/21/2015 Lindsey F
When I came into Blue Bridal I was looking for a wedding dress for my wedding in three months (short engagement!) They were friendly and helpful. At first I didn't think much of the selection but they were very good to pull dresses for me based on my comments. The dresses they pulled were very similar to what I described and they made sure they were in my price range before letting me try them on (unlike other places I went). I found a dress I loved and they were able to get in time!! (only in ivory but I didn't have time to be that picky). They were always super helpful, got my dress in early and helped me pick out a sash and veil as well! Great little shop on South Congress!
Fantastic Wedding Dress ShopReviewed on 10/16/2014 Sara W
I found the team at Blue Bridal Boutique one of the best wedding dress shops in Austin. They went above and beyond at each of my visits (it took a couple to find "the dress"), I never felt rushed or that they were annoyed to have to keep showing dress after dress. They answered all my questions with expert knowledge and professionalism. Plus the store is just too cute and you really feel the personal touch. I would highly recommend Blue Bridal Boutique for anyone looking for a wedding dress in Austin.
made me feel like family until I needed to pick up my dressReviewed on 8/21/2014
Jamie and her staff were very sweet and made me feel like I was a family member. I loved that we had the studio to ourselves and I could walk through the store with a dress on to get a feel for it. After trying on several dresses I didn't think I would find my dress there. The staff ended up picking out my dress and I immediately fell in love. The dress was over budget so I didn't commit at first. I tried on numerous other dresses at several other salons and didn't find anything that matched up to this dress. I ended up scheduling another appointment and purchased my dress. They were still very helpful during my second appointment and just as sweet. They are a smaller boutique so they have a few dresses from each designer they carry. With all these good things to say I was extremely disappointed when it came time to pick up my dress. They wouldn't work with my schedule (I live out of town and had to make a special trip to pick it up). Additionally, they wouldn't allow me to make a payment unless it was over $200 which was never discussed when purchasing my dress. Joanna lack of customer service was shocking after the great service I previously experienced with them. They have left a sour taste in my mouth.
Great experienceReviewed on 7/30/2014 Amanda
I did not end up getting my dress from Blue Bridal but I did end up getting my veil and a hair piece. They were very easy to work with and nice! It was perfect and they shipped it to me since I do not live in Austin. It arrived on time in perfect condition.
Excellent!Reviewed on 7/09/2014
I HIGHLY recommend Blue Bridal to anyone looking for a boutique/more intimate experience when shopping for a dress. I didn't want to search the racks as I had no clue what would look good on my body and Jamie at Blue brought dresses out right away that were perfect! It was such a relaxing and enjoyable experience compared the one other place I went shopping at that was much bigger and not nearly as helpful.
Beautiful, stylish Bridal dressesReviewed on 7/09/2014 Katrina M
I loved Blue Bridal Boutique. They have some really beautiful, stylish, elegant wedding dresses to choose from. The ladies who work here are super nice, understanding of your budget and help you find something that you love. They are great! I would recommend visiting this store. On a side note: I do not recommend using the seamstress, Karol, that they recommend (she doesn't work for Blue Bridal, but is on their recommendation list). She was dismissive of my concerns, pushy and I did not feel like she cared about what I really wanted. She is also WAY overpriced. She made my hem too short, the bustle literally kept coming undone all night and my bridesmaids had to keep fixing it, and the dress was too tight. She charges around $525 for alterations, and my dress wasn't even complicated. She didn't care that I wasn't totally happy with her work.

Lovely boutique. Great service. Beautiful selection.
Successful Girls WeekendReviewed on 7/05/2014
I happened to get engaged after an already planned girls trip with my mom. Since we don't live in the same area we decided to dress shop while we were in Austin. Jaime was extremely helpful and very accomodating due to the circumstances of us living out of town. Jaime made the arrangement to have the dress shipped to them to verify the order prior to it being shipped to me. We picked my dress the first day but wanted a night to sleep on. Jaime fit me in the next day so I could have the dress of my dreams!!! Wonderful boutique.
