This business had very good staff that helped me and my bridal party sort through dozens of off-the-rack bridal gowns. They were happy to allow me to try on gowns with no appointment (although I visited after peak season). Faith was helpful, ki...
nd, and caring as my consultant. She knew her stock and did what she could to assist us.
The store itself (the building) leaves a lot to be desired, as far as the "bridal experience" goes. The restroom was not working properly, the air conditioning wasn't great, and the changing room was not very nice, but I still ended up finding my gorgeous wedding gown for an excellent price!
This business was definitely worth my time, and I'd recommend (with cautions about the building).

After looking at other bridal shops I was less then impressed with I came to Bridal Emporium where I have shopped before. Ashley my bridal consultant was beyond knowledgeable. She helped pull a few dresses that would flatter my body type. Afte...
r trying on 2 dresses I found my dress. Ashley made the appointment fun and carefree. I ordered my dress and it came wrong at no fault to then doing anything wrong, they quickly reordered me a new one and now it is perfect. I ordered the whole wedding party dresses from them, they have a wide selection to choose from they have prom dresses , bridedmaids,flowergirl and mother of the brude/groom. Angela and everyone there make you feel like part of the family. I would highly recommend them to any picky gurl looking for a special dress . And I am very picky. I can not wait til July.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Bridal Emporium. Prior to my experience, I was hesitant, as they require you to make an appointment in order to view/try on their wedding gowns. PLEASE believe me when I say, that is NOT because the...
y are snobs or elitist!!!!! That is truly because you get the entire top floor of the studio all to yourself, with your "entourage", and your Bridal Consultant. Having been to another local bridal shop, I can say that this was the very best feeling. On a scale of 1 to 10, my self esteem is at about a 3. So, being the only bride on the floor was huge for me. I didn't feel intimidated by other brides who are thinner/shorter/prettier/etc. than I am, and I truly could just be me up there! And Ashley, Bridal Consultant, was more amazing than I could have ever hoped for. She is tremendously knowledgable about the stock, but she gives you just enough space to only provide guidance where needed/wanted (I super appreciate not feeling smothered by a store associate, no matter what type of shopping I'm doing!!). Ashley made me feel comfortable, never "stupid" for not knowing something or for asking the same questions over and over. I really felt like she respected how I felt and what I was looking for. Never in a million years would I have expected to choose my wedding dress yesterday, especially at a place that requires an appointment. Turns out, I was so thankful that they do!! Oh, and their floor stock is HUGE, prom dresses galore, bridal party dresses galore, MOB dresses, flower girl dresses, and sweet/friendly associates on the floor more than happy to answer questions and help you. Wedding gown selection was very impressive, as well, and I felt that the variety was so vast, considering the fact that they are a privately owned business. I wish I could give Bridal Emporium more than 5 stars!!! :)

thank them enough! I found my dream dress that fit my budget, and felt that the employees shared my excitement! This store has a large selection, and are willing to work with any price range. My experience was perfect, and I could not have asked for a better dress!

Hands down the best bridal salon in the Binghamton area! I visited a few other salons before this one and was treated like dirt. This shop turned all of the bad experiences around the moment I walked through the door. I like that you get the we...
dding suite to yourself when you make an appointment! It 100% made the experience that much better. I had a bridal consultant who also assisted me the entire time (which I was barely even greeted at the other salons, let alone assisted). I ended up picking my wedding dress and bridesmaids all in one day. They have 2 floors filled with thousands of dress options for pretty much all occasions. Beautiful shop. Would highly recommend this to friends and family and I will!

Wonderful selection of Bridal gowns. Went to many salons but Bridal Emporium was by far the best in service and price.

This vendor REQUIRES an appointment for wedding dress shopping. I scheduled a 10:30 appointment with this vendor on a Saturday morning. I showed up at about 10:15 AM and they were less than pleased that I was early. (I wanted to browse maid'...
s dresses first). They ONLY give you an hour to find the dress of your dreams :( The girl was nice enough, though not super professional. While all dresses are under $1,000, you are DEFINITELY getting what you pay for. All dresses seem very cheap in overall quality. I was not impressed whatsoever. Additionally, you MUST go up a very steep flight of stairs to try on dresses. This was extremely difficult for my grandmother who wanted to be involved in my process.
As for maid's dresses, the floor is VERY cramped and they prohibit photo taking, so don't anticipate trying one on and comparing to another one you might like!!! My honest opinion... move along elsewhere.

I loved my dress. It was hand picked by the owner of the shop as something she thought would be great on me. At first I passed but after trying it on, I fell in love immediately and bought it 13 months before my wedding!! It was perfect. Unfort...
unately, the in-house alterations lady did a HORRIBLE job on my dress. She charged me to hem FIVE layers of my dress and then only hemmed THREE. She took the other layers, rolled them under and simple baste stitched them. This is not a stitch to permanently hold, rather it is a stitch to "temporarily fix" something. The hem came out 1/3 of the way through my day. She also "bustled" my dress inappropriately. My dress was very heavy and should have had several loops or a different approach. She took one thread and looped it around one small button. This ripped and fell off immediately upon entering my reception. I would NEVER recommend this woman to alter ANYTHING!!! Buy your dress here but do not let them alter it in store!!!

I got my dress at the bridal emporium. I had been looking and was quite frustrated by the time I got to the bridal emporium because of the lack of dresses for the bigger sized girls. As I walked in, Angela helped to take my mind off of things a...
nd insisted that she pick out the dresses. I told her the styles I was looking for and did not want any part of. I tried on a few dresses that she picked out and they were alright but just weren't "the one". She then came in with a dress in her hands. She said please have an open mind about this one, I know you don't want pick-ups but it's halter like you want and i think it will look beautiful. I tried it on and I could not speak when I looked in the mirror. I decided that I wasn't going to get it because I had other appointments with my mom, mother-in-law, and maid's of honor. When we went to our other appointments I just kept thinking about that dress. So we went to the bridal emporium after that appointment unannounced and I asked if we could have the room upstairs so I could try on some more dresses. Without any trouble they let me and we decided to get that dress. My maid's dresses were just as easy to find and get. The staff helped my husband and his men with their suits too. All in all our experience was very good and we would go back if we ever were to get married again!
