BEST Bridal shop in the area!!!Reviewed on 8/26/2014 Samantha W
I've gotten several prom dresses at Yvonne's & I always knew in my mind I would find my wedding dress here! From the moment I scheduled my appointment at a bridal show, to walking into the shop for my appointment. Janice was the greatest!! She knew EXACTLY what I wanted! It only took me 7 dresses to find the one. My family and I were so comfortable the entire time which made it that much better. After all was said and done, I walked out of there with the PERFECT dress, an embellished belt, lace cathedral veil, David Tutera pearl necklace & bracelet all for a fabulous price! If you want to find an amazing dress & be treated like family, this is the place to go!!! You will always walk out with a smile on your face!
My experienceReviewed on 8/19/2014 Brianna V
My consultant was very helpful she showed me exactly what I wanted and kept within my budget. The atmosphere is very private and relaxing. You are shown dresses but not overwhelmed with too many dresses. All dresses are pulled for you so that way you don't fine yourself is a pile of dresses without a clue of what you are looking for. I highly recommend them.

The personalized help at this dress salon is beyond compare. I live in NYC area and came here as my parents are still in Albany area and I am so happy I did. The dress I found was so stunning, and more amazing was the tailoring job the seamstress accomplished for me. I loved my dress, could not even find it in all of NYC after I found it in this store, and decided the service at the salon was worth the trip back--this says a lot when you are a bride with limited time to do everything!
I was so happy with my dress and my experience at the bridal gallery! Everyone there was knowledgeable and helpful and the whole process went smoothly. They had a great selection of dresses and my alternations came out perfect!
I visited Yvonne's Bridal when I started shopping around for a flower girl dress. I called the store 2 weeks before the visit to confirm if an appointment was needed for flower dresses and I was told no. I went to Yvonne'sne bridal with the flower girl to look at and try on dresses and I was so surprised with the service I got or should I say the service that I did not get. First of all they need to take the jingle bell off that door and have someone present at the front to meet and greet customers. We walked in the store and the jingle bell alerted a staff that there was a customer. However, when the lady came to the front and saw us she turned and walked away without even acknowledging us. The flower girl and I sat for about 15minutes and still did not get any help, and during that time 2 other supposedly staff members passed by. Another bridal party came in and "jingle bell" went off again, same woman who ignored me, rushed to the front and assisted. I watched on with dismay as I waited to be helped. I went to the counter and stood for about 10minutes and watched as staff members passed on. Finally a young lady whom I hadn't seen prior came over and offered to help. After about 1/2hour I had a bitter taste in my mouth and wanted to leave, but the trooper that I am stayed to look at dresses. After all that time I did not see a dress I thought would work and the lady who tried to help me was no where to be found. I stood at the counter and waited for a very longgggg time because I had a question about a particular dress. Oh no, "Jingle bell" in came another person who walked in and the same woman who did not acknowledge me came to the front to help that other person. So here it goes: Worker : good morning, may I help you. Other customer: I think she was waiting to be helped. Are you waiting to be helped? Me: sure, I am waiting to be helped. Worker: oh, aren't you with the bridal party that's looking at bridesmaid dresses. Me: no, I am not. I am shopping for a flower girl dress and have a question, but if you took the time out to help when you saw me walked in through that door you would known exactly why I am here. The service was beyond awful, it was my first and my last visit to Yvonne bridal. I hate to say this, but I felt iignored, I felt it was because of the color of my skin. My overall rating is below 0 the worse but I guess I have to check a star.
I went to Bridal Gallery By Yvonne for my bridesmaids dresses and found a GREAT selection! I was able to pick a number of different style dresses that I had my bridesmaids choose from so they are able to each wear a different style. I was very happy with the help from the employees in finding the perfect dresses for my bridal party. I did schedule an appointment to bridal gown shop a few weeks later. I was able to not only choose the PERFECT wedding gown for myself but allow some closest friends/family/bridal party to accompany me in my decision. The gowns that I did try on were all BEAUTIFUL and I am very happy with the dress that I chose. I was able to show a picture of exactly what I was looking for in a dress and found EXACTLY what I was looking for. Not only did the selection that was brought into the suite for me to try on on meet my needs but the employees were very helpful in allowing me to make my own decisions and not be too pushy with making a decision. It was also very reassuring that I was told that things can be changed/altered on the dresses to meet my needs and wants if needed. The employees also brought in a selection of veils for me to try on that matched perfectly with each dress. I was not only able to purchase my wedding dress there but I was able to get a veil that will make the dress look even more perfect. I did not look for dresses any where else so I was unable to compare prices with other places. I would recommend Bridal Gallery by Yvonne to anyone looking for their wedding dress or for their bridesmaids dresses! There is also a wide variety and selection of mother of the bride/groom dresses as well!
I had an unforgettable experience at Yvonne's! Their selection of dresses are breathtaking, I wish I could've bought them all! The consultant I worked with took all of my likes and dislikes into account and her patience was so helpful! I am so happy with the gown that I have chosen.
I had the most amazing experience at the Bridal Gallery by Yvonne! Everyone was so helpful and accommodating, they have absolutely gorgeous dresses at great prices, and the salon is beautiful. I got my wedding dress there as well as my bridesmaid dresses, and every time was a great experience. I highly recommend the Bridal Gallery!
PerfectReviewed on 10/20/2015 Lindsay J
The staff was very helpful and did a great job with finding my perfect wedding dress. Alterations went well as well. Overall very pleased.
Wonderful place and staff at bridal gallery by Yvonne!! They make you feel so special and help you find the perfect dress. The selection they have is amazing, one of the few places to find David Tutera gowns as well. The staff goes above and beyond and even looks at the dresses you pinned on their page and pulls them for you. The selection was so perfect I fell in love with the first dress I tried on!!! They make sure you are happy and comfortable with everything and ensure you have the perfect dress for your day! They really take extra effort to make for a wonderful and memorable experience, I highly recommend everyone go here to get their dress....you won't leave disappointed!! A big thanks to everyone at Bridal Gallery by Yvonne!!
The Bridal Gallery by Yvonne was amazing from the moment I called to make an appointment. They provided me with very useful information over the phone from the starting prices of the dresses to how many people I should bring and what to expect. They were the only ones to do this out of 3 places I called. Right off the bat I was feeling incredibly positive about coming here. As the day approached to go wedding dress shopping I was very nervous thinking no one would have my sizes (I'm considered plus size) and started to stress. The first place I went only had about 3 dresses; however, Yvonne's blew that number out of the water. They had so many dresses in the style I was looking for and in my size I was overwhelmed (in a GOOD way!). Also, I worked with Janice and she was VERY polite, knowledgeable, and even pulled a dress I would have never thought I would try on. Well, guess what, that was the dress I chose! The shop is very neat, clean, and they have private rooms. Not to mention all the consultants' attention is solely on you- which is a great feeling. Plus, they not only treat the bride well, they also treat the people you bring with you well. I had about 7 people with me and Janice made us ALL feel special and listened to everyone's opinions. I ended up canceling my other appointment for the day based solely on my experience here with Janice and how she made me feel. I HIGHLY recommend Yvonne's as well as Janice. She was amazing; this shop was amazing. I can't say enough good things about it!
From my first phone call, to my dress appointment and after I have been more than impressed with the incredible customer service, personal touch and true professionalism of Bridal Gallery by Yvonne. I brought all 7 bridesmaids plus the two mothers to my appointment and there was plenty of room for all of us. My bridal consultant, Janice, was so nice and kept me from being overwhelmed. I would highly recommend Bridal Gallery by Yvonne to anyone!!
I had such a great experience at the Bridal Gallery by Yvonne. Janice was amazing, she was extremely patient and was truly dedicated to finding my dream dress!! She did not once make me feel pressured as many other bridal salons and consultants did. I strongly recommend Bridal Gallery by Yvonne!!
Amazing experience! Janice was very welcoming, patient, and extremely helpful! They have a beautiful selection that is reasonably priced. I enjoyed having my own private room to try on dresses until I found the perfect one. Highly recommend! Can't wait until my dress comes in!
Yvonne is the first and only bridal gallery that I went to. My two sisters and I all found and bought our wedding dresses from Yvonne. I worked with Janice and she helped me find the perfect dress for me. She even found the perfect earrings to go with my dress, which I purchased that same day as well. I highly recommend Bridal Gallery By Yvonne. L Choppy
Staff was lovely and on point. They listened to what I wanted and delivered! I am getting a one of a kind dress, with the help of the staff I couldn't be happier!
Yvonne's is AWESOMEReviewed on 12/08/2014 Jaime P
Yvonne's was the first place that I was looking for my bridal gown. Once I stepped into the store it was like nothing else I felt. We had our own suite to try on my dress with my mom and my bridesmaids there with me. The woman that assisted me (Janice) understood what type of dress I was looking for and listened to everything we were saying. The 7th dress I tried on, was "the one". I am so happy that I had my experience at Yvonne's, I will always remember that special day. Thank you!!!!
Dress was amazing but service was horrificReviewed on 11/23/2014
My David Tutera Anita gown was what I always dreamed of. Before I purchased my dress the service was average. After the dress was paid for the service given to me took a MAJOR downturn. The staff and the seamstress at Bridal by Yvonne's had me in tears during my first fitting. I had a 6pm fitting and I did not leave until at least 9pm. My maid of honor, mother and one of my bridesmaid also came for a fitting and my MOH and bridesmaid had to leave after 2 hours of waiting. As we were waiting I watched as people with appointments an hour to 2 hours after me were leaving with their dresses fitted. My mother had to wait in her dress that was not fitting properly and very uncomfortable as staff was telling us that they will be right with us. Apparently 2-3 hours is fast?! When I became furious that the staff was becoming rude to us because I was pushing them foursome kind of service and not snide remarks. Excuses were flying from the staff until I broke and was pacing throughout the store for two hours. When Yvonne realized that we were there for so long, she had a lot of excuses, but did bring us into a bridal suite, partly because I was in tears. The worst of the excuses was the comparison between a bridal dressing fitting and a restaurant. If I was at a 5 Star restaurant,which is the only kind I should Compare it to, I would have had a free meal of my choice and some major suck up by the staff, none of which I received. After my MOH and Mother spoke with the staff the following day Yvonne finally broke. Initially she tried to give more excuses. When I spoke with Yvonne the next day she continued with the excuses until we broke her into realizing her mistake and she finally apologized. When I came back for my fitting I was quickly placed into a room but I feel that it pitiful that it took that to get that service. When I asked the seamstress to build the bustle with more than one hook and she quickly responded that she always does it one way and that is the way she will do it. I asked that because I had a friend whose dress tore at the bustle due to lack of support by the single hook. I picked up my dress and all my bridesmaids dresses and mothers dress and all was good. On my wedding day before I even started dancing my Italian lace wedding gown nada 6 inch tear in it from the bustle. When two seamstresses who attended my wedding went to fix it, with dental floss, they saw that David Tutera had 3 spot sewn into the dress for the bustle hooks that were not used. The seamstress merely placed a hook on the Italian lace and expected the delicate and expensive lace to hold up the weight of the dress. Luckily the rest of my wedding was perfect but it put a huge dent in my time to take pictures and dance. When I went into the bridal gallery they simply said that tears happen. Yet another excuse. I insisted on speaking to Yvonne in her busy gallery to share my unhappiness about their services and all the excuses I received. I was compensated with a coupon for preservation that I had already received and my veil preservation. All my patient bridesmaids and mother received was a small discount. I would highly recommend David Tutera but Bridal Yvonne provided poor service. I should not have to cry to get the service I deserve. Be aware if you are getting your gown here.
Exceptional ExperienceReviewed on 10/19/2014 Kelly M
I bought my wedding gown, veil, strapless bra, and jewelry at the Bridal Gallery by Yvonne.I also purchased all of the bridesmaids' dresses from here.The facility with very nice and has private rooms for the brides and their families while trying on dresses. This was such a nice experience after going to other bridal shops and having to try in dresses in front of many other people, inviting unwanted comments from strangers. I mostly worked with Janice who was fantastic. She was very friendly and professional. My only complaint is regarding the alterations. She did a fantastic job and the dress fit well, but she was very pricey and I was required to pay all in cash, which is expecting a lot when the alterations were almost $700. As far as the bridesmaids' dresses the process was very easy. My girls were all from out of town and were able to get measurements taken elsewhere and e-mail or fax the measurements along with the dress selection and payment. Once the dresses arrived I mailed them to each girl who was then able to get them altered at their convenience near home. I would definitely recommend this vendor when looking for dresses.

Seamstress didn't properly do my dress and it kind of ruined my day.
Happy SurpriseReviewed on 9/29/2014 Maddy K
I honestly wasn't sure what to expect when I went to Yvonne's, but I was pleasantly surprised. I described what sort of gown I was looking for to the lady helping me, and she went in the back and brought out several for me to try. Yvonne's was the last place I looked, but they did the best job helping me find what I was looking for. They had gowns that I had seen in magazines and gowns that I hadn't (the owner selects them herself). I ended up choosing a gown from a line by Allure Bridals that is not advertised in any magazines. It was exactly what I was looking for! I met the owner when I went back to try it on with shoes and jewelry to see what worked and she was the nicest lady- so relaxed and accommodating. Such a wonderful experience!
Outstanding customer service !!!Reviewed on 9/20/2014
I went to Yvonne's to find my dress and from the time I walked in the door I felt welcomed. I just knew at that moment I would find the dress of my dreams. Janice my consultant was amazing absolutely professional. I couldn't ask for more. She picked me the perfect dresses to try on and I knew the dress I put on it was the one. Instantly I said this is my dress. I would never recommend anywhere else but here for all brides and bridesmaids. Absolutely amazing !!! I give this store an over all 10+!!!
AmazingReviewed on 6/16/2014 Kayla H
I absolutely felt like all the attention was on me. They were super helpful and I loved that there was a private suite. It made my experience that much more personal. My only issue was that they picked the dresses for me to try on. Although they were great choices and I decided on the first one I tried on, it would have been nice to look for myself. After I made the decesion all the employees were congratulating me and the one helping me even gave me a huge hug. I like that they are trying to get to know me and Im not just another customer buying a dress! It actually brought a tear to my eye. I cant wait to continue working with them!
Beautiful dress; trouble with alterationsReviewed on 4/26/2014 Cybil
My initial experience at Yvonne's was great. I had a very special experience trying on dresses, etc. I had some difficulties in the alterations process, though. I purchased a lace dress and the alterations presented to me at my final fitting were very sloppy. My lace was frayed, there were large holes left un-sewed, all of the re-seaming was visible, and the belt that I purchased (that fit perfectly at my original fitting the week prior) was suddenly 3 inches too small. I requested that everything be fixed as soon as possible as it was 2 days prior to the wedding, and the staff was very accommodating and flexible with my request. All of the issues were fixed the next day, thankfully; however, it was a very stressful experience so close to the wedding day. I will say that Yvonne, the owner, took care of every concern I had and was a pleasure.
Nice dresses, some staff is fantasticReviewed on 11/19/2013 Mandy B
I am not really a Girly girl and excited about dress shopping, and my dress consultant didn't seem to know how to deal with that. I eventually found a dress that was perfect for me. It was pretty pricy - but I think it was worth it in the end.
