Great dress selection and everyone was so nice!

I went to B&W on a very tight schedule (5 weeks) and an even tighter budget. I was never treated like I was less than as I had experienced at other salons. I expected to only have a few options but really I had beautiful selection of dresses to...
choose from. My stylist was mindful of my budget and time frame and remained honest regarding what dresses fit within those. In the end I found a beautiful dress that I was able to take home under my budget! Thank you Brides and Weddings!

I had went to B&W when i was in high school for a prom dress, and then i was in three different weddings since then and all the bridesmaid dresses were purchased here, and the experience for those dresses that when I got engaged, I knew right ...
away that was the only place I was going to go. they were great and let you look at what they have and mark different ones you want to try on. they were very patient and helpful with trying on all the dresses. I was unsure and put the one I bought back on and they could tell I had found the one. I bought my head piece here as well. all 4 of my bridesmaids got their dresses there and had a great selection for them. all four were the same color but a different style of dress. I was a little bummed that they don't have in house alterations anymore, however they recommend someone else unless you have someone you already know. love this place and the employees. recommend B&W to anyone that is in need of their services.

Had the best experience with Brides and Weddings! After an unsuccessful trip to a big city filled with bustling bridal shops and overwhelming staff members pressuring me to make a decision, B&W was a breath of fresh air. They made a few recomme...
ndations based on what I told them I was looking for, and then gave me space to look around while still making sure I knew they were there if I needed them. I never once felt pressured or stressed, and was able to find my dream gown almost immediately! Their selection and price range was pleasantly surprising, and I almost wish I could shop with them again! ;)

They were very patient with me when I came to try on dresses. I am very indecisive and they did not push me towards one dress or another and kept giving me options. Only complaint is not having an in-house tailor. I had to find my own.

This place is AMAZING! I have gotten a prom dress, bridesmaid dress, and now my beautiful wedding dress from here. The staff is wonderful! I scheduled my appointment a month ahead of time and when I showed up, they ask you what you like, don't ...
like, and budget. Then they let you go around and pick some gowns. It was so much fun! The gal who helped me, Michaela, was absolutely wonderful! She was nothing short of amazing, complimentary, and oh so friendly! She was so excited when I found my dress, and I gave her many hugs by the time we had left. I cannot recommend this place enough to anyone thinking about going here. You will have a great experience and hopefully find your dream dress!
