Thank you Marianne M. and everyone for all your help!

I bought my dress yesterday at the end of my third appointment at Castle Couture. The salon is beautiful and they have a fantastic selection in almost every price range. Each bride and her group get a private area and mirror to try on dresses, which really helps to put you at... Read More ease. The best part of my experience was working with my consultant Melissa. She was sweet, patient and never once pressured me to make a decision. She listened to my opinions and was able to pick out the most perfect dresses for me. After my first appointment at Castle Couture, I committed to a dress that I felt very torn over hours later. Melissa took my phone call, put my order on hold, and held my hand through two other appointments and helped me pick out the dress of my dreams. Melissa was great at helping me to narrow down what I liked and did not like about dresses, which was so helpful at a time when I felt confused about what it was I wanted I am so happy today knowing that I found the perfect dress. My mom and grandma will be making appointments with Melissa for their gowns. I can't wait to go back for my first fitting!

Castle Couture was more than I ever imagined. I was luckily paired with Christina, who was amazing from the start. She made me feel comfortable, even while I was minimally dressed between trying on gowns - she kept the conversation going and got my mind off of that detail.... Read More Upon meeting, I showed Christina one picture of the style of dress that I was looking for and she came back with about 7 similar, but different, gowns. While looking online, I had difficulty finding dresses my style (long sleeve lace) that I liked yet, she somehow found multiple that were perfect for me within minutes of meeting. Without knowing, she first pulled my dream dress that I had had my eyes on for months - that was the first dress I tried on and ultimately the one I chose. Christina was honest and helped me make the decision of which dress was the best fit for me. Once I had an idea of the gown I would choose, I was set up with flowers and an "aisle" while my mom taped me walking down it, for me to imagine what I would look like on my wedding day in the same gown - that was a great touch which allows me to still re-watch that video and imagine what that moment will look like. During the entire process, other employees were close by happy to help, always with a smile on their face. Everyone I came in contact with was extremely friendly and helpful. It shows that the employees there truly care for what they do; they are extremely knowledgeable as well. I felt very special throughout the time that I was there and I thank the entire staff for that. I would recommend Castle Couture to anyone looking for an incredible experience.

Read More very snobby and my sales consultant was very pushy trying to up sell me jewelry,shoes & hair pieces when I told her I was only interested in buying my dress.. My follow up appointment to try the dress on now that my actual dress had come was worse when I went up to the desk to check in they asked me if I was there for my prom dress, I had no my wedding dress and still they asked me how old I was, it was rude and turned me off the tone it was said... I hated the bussel options they gave me and thank god I didn’t use them for it and went else where because My friend who recently got married used them for her bussel and the week before her wedding she had to have it fixed because they messed it up very badly Would not recommend them and will never go back Very snobby & not good service

Today was a magical day! I said yes to the dress!

Kristen was amazing, I... Read More showed her three, maybe four screen shots of dresses I liked and she pulled out the dress of my dreams!

But when I put on that magical dress, so special that it brought me to tears to my eyes, I was in disbelief, I felt like Princess Kate ! The shop is so beautiful (more beautiful than some of the venues I looked at lol) and the experience was one that I will never forget! Highly recommended to all the brides to be !!

Terrible. I bought my wedding dress at Castle Couture. The actual act of trying on dresses wasn't that bad, but it was great either. They had ordered me a size 18 dress (I normally wear a size 6-10 depending on the style) saying that wedding dresses run extremely small and this... Read More is wear I fell on the sizing chart so I shouldn't feel bad about the number (I didn't until she said that). I had no reason not to so I trusted their professional opinion on the size. When my dress came in and I went to try my dress on I was almost in tears because the dress literally fell off of me it was so big. All the sales people and seamstress were like oh my god you lost soooooo much weight (I had lost like 8 pounds not enough for a dress to fall off). They measured me again right then and all my measurements were within an inch of the original measurements, some measurements were even larger than the original. The seamstress then quoted me over $1000 for alterations because the dress basically had to be redone. That was about half the cost of the dress. Furious, we tried to speak to a manager and they were nothing but rude and unhelpful. Because we had signed off on a size 18 being ordered we were stuck with it. Its not like you get to try it on before you order it so you go with what the experienced bridal consult suggests. Needless to say we took the dress elsewhere for alterations and ended up only paying $250 when Castle Couture had quoted me over $1000. What a scam. In the ended the dress had to be take in over 10 inches, which is absurd. It was a very upsetting experience as I felt like the dress was never going to fit me right and I didn't feel beautiful in my wedding dress. Thankfully in the end my amazing seamstress was able to make the dress perfect, but it was not easy. I would NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. STAY AWAY!

Wedding 9/8/17 When I first went to castle couture I went very discouraged. I was searching all night the night before picking my dress on their site and I wasn’t a fan of my “dream dress”.

Read More Angela was my rep...I showed her some styles which I liked from Pinterest and she knew right off the bat who each designer was of each dress..I told her what I didn’t want which was ball gown or sleeves...she sat me down and told me to be patient while she pulled styles that worked with my body...well first off she is amazing...she picked the PERFECT dress...by Matthew Christopher...mind you it was the first one I tried on and had a side sleeve...instantly I knew that was the ONE...no other dress I tried on compared to it....thank you so much!....I than met with Marilyn who was my seamstress and she does wonders! Altering your wedding gown can be expensive but it’s worth it. She tailored it perfectly and each fitting I went to she made them go smoothly and easy...my dress could not have been more perfect for me thank you so much!

The overall store is nice but the sales people are pushy and seem like they want you out of there. Did end up buying my dress here because I liked it and it was a good price, but didn't get the warm and fuzzies. Alterations went smooth but were expensive.

I went to Castle Couture to get my bridal gown. Angela was my consultant and she was VERY nice. She helped me pick out a dress, although I ended up with a dress that was not the style I had expected to choose. Angela had a good eye for picking out dresses for my body type and... Read More gave good and respectful input. I bought a dress on my first visit to the store. All of my wedding photos were beautiful and my Pronovias gown was perfect. I came back to pickup my dress and my fitting was very awkward. I was with my mom and no one in the fitting department would help me into my dress. They called me in to try on my dress and the woman working just stood there in front of me without offering assist or saying anything. I was expected to get into my dress by myself with my moms help. I had assumed going in that I would have some assistance and input from fitting specialist. What they do not tell you is that they only help you if you agree to get alterations done in the store. I was uncomfortable throughout the fitting and ended up taking my dress with me that evening. They quoted me $700 for my alterations, I ended up using a local seamstress for $375. My dress that they sized me for was over 2 sizes too big, and I did not lose weight before my wedding. I think this is done purposely to price gauge. I don't really recommend this place for brides, I would not use again. They overcharge for alterations. I also overall got a very snotty vibe in the store in general, everyone there thinks very highly of themselves.

I had a great experience at Castle Couture! I only went to two total bridal salons, but the one i went to prior to CC was just not great.

It was just enough so that i didn't spend the next 5 months looking at all the same dresses and coming back to the one they new was "my dress". I did all of my alterations at CC as well. They were NOT cheap, but they did an amazing job and always made sure the dress fit me like a glove. My appts were always on time and my seamstress was amazing. The dress could not have been more gorgeous! Thank you Castle Couture!
