So often, you find bridal dress assistants to be unwavering, watching the clock or leaving the bride nudie pants in the stall for extended time - Not Zee! She was so helpful and attentive!
She guided us to dresses, let us pull styles we liked w...
ithout even a hint of annoyance (I can be a little pushy). This shop has easily the best in the biz at the helm here. And - omg - What a wonderful selection!
It was so hard to choose, but in the end, after narrowing it to two gorgeous dresses, I asked her to pull a dress she had earlier suggested that didn’t seem to be in the mix.
Well, guess which dress ended up being THE PERFECT combination of elegance, beauty and whimsy - and became the brides dress?!
That very dress!
Tears, tears, more tears! Thank you, Zee! You were the absolute best consultant to work with! You know your client!

s, I let the dress shopping go by the wayside far longer than I should have to prepare! I started looking for a dress in early October. The first time I went to the shop, I was a little worried because it appeared somewhat small. DO NOT LET THAT FOOL YOU! I was taken upstairs and immediately saw hundreds and hundreds of gowns that the shop holds on hand. They do special ordering too - but I certainly didn't have enough time for anything like that! A wonderful young woman named Maria listened to what was important to me and started bringing me dresses to try that fit what I was asking for as I described what I had in mind. It took over ten dresses, but I finally found exactly what I wanted. The next several weeks, Zee and her team spent hours and hours altering the dress along with multiple fittings for me as certain 'parts' of the alterations were complete. They really went above and beyond and were flexible with times they would meet with me (I was driving down each time from the Portland, ME area). Again, don't be fooled by how this place may appear from the outside -- their inventory, experience, customer service and knowledge are top notch! Zee and Maria were just wonderfully warm people, too! I'm so happy I came across Bride's Choice!

Z. Maria was amazing she was patient and listened to what I liked. As she brought me the dresses each one got closer and closer to "The one!" The dress I really wanted was over budget but Z gave me significant discounts to help stay within budget! She also let me pay in installments. I also purchased my vail there and Z gave me $100 off the head piece which I will purchase later! I can't say enough about Bride's Choice Maria was very attentive and so easy to work with and Z was absolutely terrific. I had such a wonderful experience with them!

rs. I was torn between 2 great gowns and having help from my family and Zee really helped me decide. I had a really great experience that first day.
I returned to pay my balance and brought some of my bridesmaids with me to show them the dress. The shop was very busy so we had to wait a little which was understandable. But the woman who helped us happen to complain about the last group she was helping which wasn't very professional.
When I went for my 1st fitting I arrived an hour late due to traffic but Zee was very understanding and helped me when I arrived anyway. The shop it a bit warm when you are standing around in your dress for the fitting. Also as mentioned in other reviews the fittings are during week days only. This worked ok for my schedule but may not work for everyone.
For my last fitting my mother and I arrived on time but they kept us waiting for a while. Zee apologized and i didn't mind the wait (we kept them waiting the last time!) but my mother was upset about it.
Overall great shop! Some mixed experience with the service but I really would recommend it and I loved my dress and veil!

When I was waiting for a dressing room (as there were back to back appointments on a Saturday), I saw a girl trying on a dress and I knew that was the one I wanted. I asked to try it on and fell in love. I ended up having 2 appointments in one day and it was amazing. I went back with all my bridesmaids to find their dress and we were able to go in the back and pick out tons of dresses to try on. Again, the staff was helpful and kind. Each fitting was great too. I'm so happy to have found the dress of my dreams at Bride's Choice.

I will preface this review by saying that my dress was absolutely stunning, but I owe that to Maggie Sottero. The process of getting my dress and subsequent alterations through Bride's Choice was painful.
I had found the dress with my mom on o...
ur first visit and returned a few days later with my bridemaids to make a final decision and also pick out their dresses. Z, the owner, proposed that if all my girls ordered their dresses that day and I bought my dress, she would comp the price of my veil and also take $150 (give or take) off the alterations. It was my mistake for not getting this in more clear writing than the sales girls chicken scratch. Of course with an offer like that and already loving the dress, I agreed. I ordered that day, as did my girls.
The way my girls were sized made NO sense. My maid of honor is, at most, a size 8 and they ordered her dress a size 16 because she has large breasts. I can understand that it is easier to remove material than to add it in, but it ruined the shape of the dress when they then had to tailor it in.
What they don't tell you ahead of time is that for bridal alterations, you can ONLY come during week days. They aren't open evenings and they refuse to see you on weekend days because they're too busy. For women that work full time, that is an insane request. Who has the time to take off to do that??
Further, one of my girls called and made an appointment to pick up her dress early one evening right before Christmas. When she arrived, they had already closed. She lives an hour from the shop and had left work early. When she called the next day to find out what happened, they offered no apology and simply said that because things get quiet during the holiday season they had decided to leave early that day even though she had an appointment. They just told her to come in later that day.
So when I finally was able to take time off of work as they weren't willing to accodomate my work schedule, I arrived to find out that they had never ordered my veil, NOR was there any record of which veil I'd chosen OR that I was supposed to be comped a veil. There was some chicken scratch indicating the alteations, but Z argued that normally it's EITHER the alteratinons or the veil, not both. Well, this is not the deal that was proposed when they were trying to sell me the dress. Again, I should have had this in better writing. She finally agreed. Then, instead of ordering the veil I had chosen, she insisted that I take the one that all the brides had been trying on. Seriously?
This is my only negative wedding review. I am certainly not the type of person that enjoys writing negative reviews on the internet of every small thing that doesn't meet their expectations, but as a bride, anything to do with the gown is huge.

Let me start by saying I was the worlds most indecisive bride. Before going to Bride's Choice I had gone to 6 different bridal shops and tried on so many dresses, each was gorgeous and lovely and fit well, but something was missing.
Choice not only had the best selection of dresses including maggie sorrentino but the service was amazing, I found my dress not because they had the gorgeous one that looked great and fit my personality but becuase they took the time to get to know me find a dress that was what I wanted made me feel special and beautiful and where just wonderful to deal with.
The people working there are so nice and attentive I was able to feel like a bride and they helped me see myself in each dress as a bride they where detailed oriented, and could see what I needed, the dress I feel in love with had a ribbon when I put it on they could see in my face I loved it but was not sure they talked to me got to know what I wanted and so they quickly pulled out a slightly lighter ribbon and said try it with this, at that moment I knew it was my dress it was the detail and attention that helped me find it. I truly believe I could have tried on that dress in another store and walked away just unsure as before, but instead they helped me make it my own dress and I fell in love. The saddest part of my wedding being over for me is that I loved my dress so much I just want to wear it all the time.
They also do the tailoring in house so from the beginning I had someone who could help me add details pull it in just right so I could imagine it the way it was gonna be.
Since I am so indicative I of course cut it close to when I needed it to be ordered they worked with my time frame helped me when I need it, found the perfect dress vial, tailoring, and service all in one place. If I could do it all again I would skip going to the 6 other places save my energy and go to Bride's Choice right away

came to choosing a size they had me call her to ask her what size she wanted, when she chose the smaller of the two options the lady made me tell her that she had to lost weight in order to get that size. How rude! Why did you give her a choice then? Once the dresses came in, which took FOREVER, the girls went to pick them up. My maid of honor went and got hers and it would not even come close to zipping up. When she told them, they had insinuated that she gained weight. When she went in to get measure she had only gained 1/2 and inch and it wasnt even in the place that the zipper wouldn't close. When she was ordering she wanted the bigger size, but they steered her towards the smaller. It took a lot out of them and a big fight for them to order her extra fabric, once that came in they were going to charge her to get it taken out! The way they handled the whole situation left a sour taste in my mouth and it was totally disrespectful of her to tell someone to lose weight. I would never go there in a million years and I would never wish that expeirence on anyone!

My experience with Zee, the manager, was nothing short of strange. Although I did like the selections and pricing they had at this place, I ended up waiting 9 months for my (very SIMPLE) dress to come in. This was partly the fault of the design...
er, but I was told by the store that I would have the dress in April ... then June, July, and so on, and there was never any hint of apology about the delays. Zee is probably a little too blunt/grumpy to be dealing with brides (although perhaps her attitude is a result of dealing with brides...), and essentially called me fat on more than one occasion (I was a street size 6 at the time). She also wanted to charge us for the rushed shipping so that we could finally get the dress TWO WEEKS before my September wedding (I had ordered in November the year before)! She did end up paying the shipping, and the dress turned out great, but I still don't think buying from Bride's Choice was worth the extra stress.

On the positive side, there was a wonderful selection at Bride's Choice and I got my dress for a VERY low price without sacraficing on quality. However, you need thick skin to deal with the alterations. At my first fitting I was told flat out...
that it would be good if I lost 5 lbs (I was a size 6 at the time) and then at the next fitting after I DID manage to lose 7 lbs I was told 'do not lose any more weight but don't gain any weight either, stay exactly the same' which is a bit of an added stress to a bride. Every time I went there I had an appointment but each time had to wait at least 10 minutes before anyone could see me. I would recommend going here to purchase your dress but find a separate taylor for alterations. The cost includes alterations.
