After visiting another dress shop earlier in the day, I worried I wasn't going to find anything I liked. And I needed to find something quick! My wedding is in 6.5 months. I worked with Michelle at Bridal Boutique, and I can't say enough good t...
hings about her and the shop. There was a good selection of off-the-rack dresses, and Michelle rightly steered me there because of my turnaround time. She also helped select other dresses until I found the perfect one. It turned out to be the very first dress she pulled for me to try on. Michelle also found accessories (belt, veil) to give me a sense of what the final look could be like. I HIGHLY recommend the Bridal Boutique.

Overall, fairly good experience. Loved my dress! Only a couple complaints, I believe it is the manager but she is very opinionated, even if you’re not asking she will give it. For example a couple of the guys wanted their pants bigger. She expl...
ained why they wouldn’t want bigger. They still wanted to try bigger after the explanation. She continued to go on about why they shouldn’t. Had I not been there, the groomsmen would have caved but I asked that we try other sizes. Turns out the bigger sizes were better. So if you order tuxes, make sure the groomsmen stand their ground, after all they are the ones wearing them. Lastly, I paid a lot of money for the hemming of my dress. Not only did I not like the buttons they used for the bussel because you could see them, but three buttons fell off the dress throughout the night and I had to redo the bussel three times. At first I thought this might be my own fault but as I read other reviews, I am not so sure of that. However, I do want to end with I went to 5 other bridal shops before this one, and this is wear I found my dress. Their dress selection is wonderful!

on for a nicer bag but I had to pay extra for it which I thought was ridiculous. I would also go somewhere else to get it hemmed and busseled, my bussel didn’t hold throughout the night and the buttons fell off. Once again, not what I expected for the amount of money I paid to have it done. Lastly, DONT EVER order your suites from here. You get a slight discount if you buy a wedding dress from the boutique but trust me the small discount is NOT worth the headache. We didn’t have full suites until Friday before the Saturday wedding. They were suppose to be in Monday before the wedding. Items were missing, multiple items were the wrong size and had to be reordered. We were also lied to about items being on their way when in reality they never left the warehouse. Overall, buy you dress here thank them for their service then go somewhere else for everything else.

t. When I came in, they had nothing like what I wanted at all. I ended up buying a sample dress, which in hindsight I wasn't saving any money on, but I felt pressured to get it from the staff. They wouldn't let me take pictures of myself in the dress so I couldn't compare it to other dresses I had tried on, even when we checked out and I was literally buying it. When we were checking out, we were being rushed by the staff essentially to hurry up and get out, even though we were still within our appointment time. In the contract it said I could return it if they're preferred seamstress couldn't repair damage. Took it to the seamstress, and she wasn't going to be able to repair it well, and even then it was going to be multiple $500+, not including any other alterations (hem, bustle, make it actually fit me, etc). Took it back to the boutique, showed them the quote and notes from the seamstress, and Monica the owner basically bullied me into keeping it, not at all honoring the contract we all signed. I could've been much more understanding and flexible of it all if everything else hadn't gone so poorly. So now I have a $1300 dress no one can wear, since it's unrepairable, and since I couldn't return it, I had to buy another dress online for cheap to stay even remotely close to in budget. 100% would avoid and I tell every new bride to not even bother with an appointment.

on I was just left to look at dresses while the lady disappeared, I was the only client in the store. She made me put on and take off the dresses i did try on by myself and barely helped me at all. the dresses they had to try on we're all almost to small or to small and I'm a fairly average size woman. The dress shop I actually bought my dress at I had a dress that was to small once. If I didn't like a dress I was non stop asked what specifically I didn't like about it because "I just don't love it" wasn't good enough, even if I did go into detail she would keep asking and brought me dresses I didn't like out of my budget anyway. She had a pretty snobby attitude. If you're skinny or know exactly what dress you want and don't have to try it on, like either big gaudy jewels or nothing at all (honestly didn't look at their high end rack because I have a budget), or don't have a budget this might be the dress shop for you but I was severely unimpressed. I bought my dress at Weddings by Design and had a blast trying on dresses with them and feel extremely welcomed anytime I step foot in their store, every employee was friendly, welcoming, and helpful. You'd think you could expect this positive atmosphere at a bridal salon but I guess not at Bridal Boutique.

e... (I was the only one in the group with an engagement ring on FYI)
Rule #2- SMILE
They sat at their desks & gave a very dry “hello” as we each walked in. The entire vibe was cold & as if they had better things to do.
I felt so uncomfortable that I did not want to try any dresses on. My bridesmaids sensed this and encouraged(forced) me to try on at least 1.
One of the dresses I tried on may very well have been THE dress, however, the whole experience was ruined and I wanted to get out of there. I don’t recommend this place if friendly customer service is important to you, as it was for me. I kept thinking to myself: “if they treat me like this before I’ve even made a purchase, how do I expect them to act if there’s an issue that needs addressing?” Needless to say, I left there disappointed & will be going somewhere else to purchase my dress.
When my concerns were brought up after the fact, they were accusatory and even went as far as to lie on my bridesmaids & myself. Only apologizing after being proven wrong. Be very careful with this place! For what their dresses were worth, the customer service was nonexistent. “Consultant” is a stretch because not once did she “consult” us. Everything was a “no”, “I don’t know”, “we don’t allow it”’ or (my fav) she would just stare at us blankly.

If you couldn't answer 1 and 2 with a yes and 3 with a no, then it wasn't the dress for you and she stated she would not sell it to you.

Thank you for all of your help in finding the perfect wedding gown. I never felt pressured or rushed during this experience.

I had a wonderful experience at both the Bridal Boutique and Perry Bridal. They let me try on as many dresses as I needed to try on to find my personal style. They never tried to talk me into something more expensive that wasn't what I wanted. ...
They focused on me.
If you can, get an appointment with Georgene. She knows how to fit a woman in clothes that flatter and she will make you feel so good about yourself, you'll want to have her come to your house and help you get dressed every day.
My wedding was in December, so I also rented a cape to wear for outside photos. They had forgotten to send it to the other shop to pick up with my dress, but offered to drop it off wherever I needed them to in order to make it right.
I even ended up buying my veil there. Their accessories are very reasonably priced compared to other places and they have excellent taste.

If you want that one-of-a-kind bridal experience, Bridal Boutique is the place! Located in the East Village, the store has the quaint boutique feel with a large selection of amazing dresses that will suit any bride. The entire staff provides ...
professional service and efficient communication. The process is very streamlined from beginning to end and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
My consultant, Lyndsey, was phenomenal!!! Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about the dresses and designers, but her personality and sense of humor put my mind at ease. She was very helpful and had a very considerate approach to helping me choose the perfect dress. I never felt rushed making such a big decision. I cannot say enough great things about her!
The Bridal Boutique is a one stop shop. We purchased our bridesmaids dresses as well as rented the suits from the store (all discounted after purchasing my dress - yet another perk). In addition, I purchased my headpiece and veil here. They have a variety of sashes, jewelry, mothers outfits, and flower girl dresses too. I must mention the very talented seamstress that does amazing alterations work at a very affordable price.
Since purchasing my dress, I've referred three other friends that have now found the dress of their dreams here too! I would have to say a large part of my decision to purchase a dresses from the Bridal Boutique was the amazing service. I would highly recommend the Bridal Boutique!

nably priced and have lots of gowns to choose from along with really nice staff. However, I did also buy my bridesmaids dresses from this store and when they came in everyone's dress was at least 2 sizes too big!!! I even had a bridesmaid who paid extra for custom sizing and hers was wrong too!! When we called the store about this the store owner basically said it couldn't be true, it wasn't their fault and that alterations were normal. I get that dresses may have to be altered but every single bridesmaid was measured by someone in their OWN store and all of them came back way too big!!! The bridesmaid with custom sizing actually had to send the store owner a pciture of her in the dress before she would refund her money!! I was pleased with them until this happened. I would still recommend them for a wedding gown but be careful with the bridesmaid dresses!

ck to fix the issue (the dress had been accidently order in the wrong size). The day before the wedding we realized that we had not gotten the boys' tux shoes and the salon had one of their employees drop them off at our house. Now that's customer service! As a bride that went to about every salon in the central Iowa region, I can say that they were amazing &amp; I don't regret my decision to purchase my gown, bridesmaid dresses, tuxes, or mother of the bride dress through them. They were amazing.

I absolutely loved the wedding dress I bought from this store. However, after I purchased the dress (which was very expensive) I felt that the customer service I received declined extremely. For example, when my dress arrived I scheduled an app...
ointment to try it on for the first time. The employees treated me poorly by rushing me to leave. Then, when I came in for my final fitting, one week before my wedding they did not have me scheduled and therefore, my dress was not in the store I arrived at. They did make up for this by having the dress at the store the following morning by the time they opened. However, if the dress did not fit, the seamstress would not have been there and it most likely would not have been altered in time for my wedding. It did fit though, thank goodness. Finally, when I picked my dress up they did not even provide a sturdy garment bag that it had been in prior to in their store. It was just a cheap plastic bag that went around it. I figured that since I went to a higher class local company I would be treated with more respect and courtesy. My dress was beautiful and I received many compliments, I just wish the employees wouldn't have caused extra stress on such a stressful event.
