For those of us who are voluptuous, the task of wedding dress shopping can be daunting. Will the samples be large enough to fit me? Is the dress I fell in love with online made in my size? Can I even feel beautiful in a dress that is basically made for a woman who is six feet... Read More tall and a size 2? At Brides by Young, all those fears melt away the minute you walk in the door. Young, Lauren and Courtney work tirelessly to make you feel comfortable, special and gorgeous. They go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience you can. The shop is clean, bright and spacious, and the selection of dresses is unique and plentiful. After I went to BBY, I cancelled all my other bridal gown appointments! I knew it would be the place I purchased my dress – and I did. I got a great deal and believe that Young will be helpful all the way through the alterations process. Young has really filled a need is this market! If you are size 14 or over, this should be the one and only dress appointment on your books.

I had two bad experiences the day I went to Brides by Young. The last one had me crying in the dressing room -- but the moment I walked into Brides by Young (thankfully they had a last minute cancellation), I felt at ease, cared about, listened to, and encouraged. Lauren and... Read More Courtney made me feel beautiful in every gown, but listened to what I really wanted and worked to find the perfect dress for me. It was such a relief to have so many samples in sizes that actually fit instead of holding them up and trying to imagine if they would work or not. They picked up on my personality very quickly and found something that suited me perfectly. I can't wait to walk down the aisle in my perfect gown :)

Had a terrible experience earlier in the day at another shop and decided to try my luck at Brides by Young. They were booked up for the day but Lauren could see by my face I was so disappointed. She asked about my earlier experience and told us to come back in an hour, when they... Read More were supposed to be closing, and she would stay with me. "We will find you your dress today!" she told me. I came back in an hour still feeling discouraged from earlier in the day and Lauren completely turned my whole day around. She made me laugh again and feel beautiful. She stayed two hours after she was supposed to go home, on Saturday night even, to make sure I felt like a beautiful bride. I would absolutely recommend Brides by Young to my friends, in fact I just send the information to a fellow bride friend! Thank you Lauren for making my dress shopping experience one filled with tears of Joy instead of Frustration. :)

As a larger-than-sample-size bride, Brides by Young was a welcome experience for me. I felt like I was finally able to have the "normal" dress shopping experience because all of the sample dresses were larger than my size (pant size 16-18 in regular stores). I ended up finding... Read More my dream dress here too, and it was the first store that had the style of dress I'd envisioned for my wedding (I'd been to three other stores, and tried on close to 50 dresses, prior). They have a versatile selection of dresses, and it was a wonderful, intimate shopping experience. I look forward to returning next month and trying my dress on again prior to placing the official order. If you're a larger than the average bridal sample size gal searching for your dream wedding gown, do yourself a favor and make an appointment at Brides by Young.

Lauren and the ladies at Brides by Young were incredibly helpful. They certainly made me feel special during my dress shopping appointment. Lauren was a wonderful listener as I told her what style I was looking for and what the vibe of my wedding is. Even though I gave her... Read More somewhat vague hints at what I wanted to begin with, she seemed to have an intuition about what I would love and what would look good on my body shape. She was clearly knowledgable and experienced as a wedding dress consultant. I honestly kind of loved every dress she had me try on, so it was no surprise that one of the dresses she picked for me to try ended up being the one. Also, the dresses were all of great quality...so much beautiful lace/material and attention to detail in these dresses! The ladies were super accommodating in helping me envision each dress on the special day (i.e. different options on each dress, jewelry to try on, bouquet to hold, veil to try on, etc.) Lauren even did a quick simple braid of my hair to match how I plan to do my hair on the wedding day so I could really imagine how all the looks would come together with my dress. The ladies all made me feel very comfortable with the whole experience and are a fun, bright group to share your dress shopping experience with! They were also all very sweet to my mother who joined me to help pick out my dress. They made sure to include her in the conversations and she was able to have fun too!

I never expected to have such a positive experience in my search for a plus sized wedding dress. I originally had appointments in Cincinnati at the Reading district and after one appointment at Brides by Young I had found the perfect dress and cancelled all my other... Read More appointments. I had a very specific style of dress in mind (sleeves) and they had tons of options that were flattering on my body. I wear a size 18 pants and I felt so comfortable in this store. I ended up getting a size 22 dress (which is something I was concerned about in planning my search at non-plus sized stores). Being served by other plus sizes girls made the experience much more comfortable than I had anticipated. Lauren was so friendly and understood exactly what I was interested in trying on. She pulled 5 dresses for me from my description of what I wanted, and they were all great. I ended up paying $1500 for my dress, but the price was increased due to adding length to the front (it was a hi-lo dress & I wanted full length) and a pearl belt. Worth every penny and I can't say enough about this store and Lauren! I had such anxiety going in to this, and it was such a relief having such an easy time finding my dream dress!

I purchased my wedding gown at Brides by Young in November 2015 for my wedding October 22, 2016. I was so happy when I stumbled upon this place through a Facebook friend who was tagged in a post. I had been very anxious about dress shopping for my plus size frame and feared that... Read More I would not be able to try anything on in the stores. However, I could have not asked for a better experience at BBY. Not only was I able to try on any dress that I wanted, but some of them were actually too big and had to be clipped. The staff was very helpful in finding a dress that work well with my body shape. I tried on 5 or 6 gowns, but ended up circling back to #1 with modifications. My gown arrived at the store right at 4 months before my wedding so I had plenty of time to get it altered. Thank you so much for all your help in finding me the most beautiful and perfect dress for my big day!

This was the first and only store I tried on dresses at. Being a plus sized girl, it is hard to find an environment that makes you feel comfortable and Brides by Young is exactly that.
