I went to cherished bridals for my first time trying on wedding dresses and had the absolute best experience. Barbara was so nice, funny and easy going.

I cannot say enough positive things about this bridal salon. This was not my first bridal salon stop, but it was my last. This salon is unique in that it acquires samples from other salons and sells them at a discount. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I and my entourage of... Read More three pulled many many dresses, and our bridal consultant could not have been more gracious and hospitable in making recommendations and bringing the pulled dresses to the fitting room. I was not rushed; I was not pressured. I was undecided between two gorgeous gowns, and eventually made a decision and said "yes to the dress." Thank you Cherished Bridals!

I had an amazing experience at this bridal boutique. Barbara was an absolute joy to work with. I went in there with a specific style in mind and told her what it was. She helped me pull some dresses and I pulled some things that I thought would look nice. At no point did I feel... Read More like I was being bothersome to Barbara by pulling almost every dress on a rack. I said yes to the dress, the jeweled sash and the veil for half of my intended budget. The shop is kind of narrow so I would not recommend coming with a big party. I went with 3 bridesmaids and we were comfortable. Any more and it may start to feel cramped. Slubia (the seamstress) worked wonders on my dress and it fit like a glove the say of. I highly, highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a wedding dress!

We cannot say enough great things about Barbara and Slubia. They were both so personally invested in my dress and did everything to make it perfect for me. Slubia is so talented and was able to change my entire skirt to be perfect for my wedding. We went to many of the 'best of... Read More the best' bridal salons in the tri state area and none had the perfect, one of a kind gown like Cherished Bridals. I was so proud to wear such a unique dress that I searched high and low for. Thank you thank you! Everyone should make Cherished Bridals their first stop when wedding dress shopping!

The experience here could not have been any better. I was concerned that a sample store might not have much in my small size & $1000 budget - but there was plenty to choose from. After Barbara saw what I pulled from the racks, she pulled great choices for me. I was the only... Read More appointment at that time - having her full attention was awesome. It was a personal, friendly, non-salesy experience. I walked out with a dress that I am actually excited to wear - and a headpiece! I'd encourage anyone to go here - it is worth traveling to, even if you're not already in North Jersey.

Cherished Bridal was one of my most cherished memories throughout all the fun of wedding planning! I got engaged in April, and the first thing I did was dress shop in July. Even though I was a year out from my wedding. A friend of mine got her dress there, and I was in love with... Read More it. It was my dream dress. However when I walked in the lady knew that a ball gown was not for me. She still showed them to me. I saw a dress a little edgy and different, and it was a mermaid style. I absolutely fell in love with the dress. Not only did I find my dress that day, I was more then pleased with the customer service provided to my family and I. She was very patient considering I was FaceTiming my family and bridesmaids! I also got my crown, veil and belt there. All in one shot. It was truly a magical experience. Nothing like visiting a franchise. I recommend every bride to be to visit Cherished Bridals! Thank you for the most amazing dress shopping experience ever! I will continue to recommend your shop!

I had gone to several other bridal salons and tried on countless dresses, but always had a hard time swallowing the price tags. My MOH found Cherished Bridals and we had an EXCELLENT shopping experience. It's nice to be able to browse the racks yourself and shop like you would a... Read More regular store - a bonus for an avid shopper like myself and my mom. We found a perfect dress, at a great price, and even the right veil! Everything about the shopping experience was excellent! However - I would definitely recommend bringing the dress elsewhere for alterations. The price we paid for the alterations, was only about 20% less than what we were quoted at the fancy salons, and it took FOUR visits just to get a hem, a bustle, cups, and a belt. The seamstress kept "forgetting" to do things every time we went. I brought it in about a month before my wedding, and we weren't able to leave with the dress until 6 days before. I would have gladly paid more to have avoided that stress so close to the wedding. While I love Barbara and so highly recommend finding your dress at this shop, I would suggest finding another seamstress to do your alterations.

Before going to Cherished Bridals I went to several other shops (high end boutiques) and tried on several nice dresses but wasn't blown away. My mom and I came to Cherished Bridals and were honestly not sure what to expect, but I think it's safe to say that all of our... Read More expectations were exceeded. First of all, Barbara is so kind and patient. She let us go through the racks ourselves and pulled dresses she thought I might like. I tried on at least four dresses and she just happened to pull something last minute. Of course, the last dress I tried on ended up being the one. Being an indecisive perfectionist, I couldn't bring myself to buy it right then and there, although it was difficult to leave the store. I told Barbara I needed to sleep on it and she was very understanding. I called the next day and asked if I could come in to try the dress on one more time, and she suggested I come on Sunday when the seamstress was there. I was so appreciative of this because it really helped me feel confident in my decision. I came back, tried the dress on, and left a happy bride - all at a price point I (and my mom, who generously paid for the dress) could live with. I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience!

Sylvia M reviewed Cherished Bridals, A Bridal Sample Outlet — 5 star Amazing!!! My MOH raved about Cherished Bridals, so after a few disappointing trips to expensive boutiques with limited selections, we decided to check it out. I couldn't be happier with the huge selection... Read More and the fact that their designer gowns were HALF off retail!! I almost cried! When I showed Barbara a picture of the style I was looking for and she pulled at least 30 dresses off the racks for me to try on-- the hardest part was picking just one! She even stayed after closing for me, and was so sweet and helpful. Thank you so much!!! Can't wait to wear my beautiful dress on my wedding day!

Cherished Bridals is a fantastic little boutique with none of the stress of larger bridal boutiques. I went in by myself and Barbara was so helpful. I had a list of dresses that I found on her website and wanted to try on. She must have pulled at least 20 dresses for me to... Read More try on and she patiently waited as I tried all of them on. She even offered to take my picture to help me decide. It is obvious that she really wants what is best for her brides. Not to mention that the prices can't be beat. I would definitely recommend her to any bride-to-be.

The best decision I made during the whole wedding process, was Cherished Bridals! After a very unpleasant experience at another bridal store I went to CB! It was actually the other store that recommended them to me! I did not think a $800 budget was out of line... but I found... Read More very few places that were able to accommodate my needs. They have a huge inventory and dozens of gowns in my price range! Not only did I find my absolute dream gown but I also got a headpiece and veil also discounted, for still less than I had budgeted for! Unheard of! Another plus was having all my alterations done at CB. Sluvia is amazing and actually made a suggestion to change the bustle to something more....MAGNIFICENT! It completely changed the back of the dress! I'm so glad I took her suggestion! AND, the cost of alterations was at least half of what the normal stores were charging. Gorgeous Designer Gown. Perfect Alterations. And Prices that absolutely can not be beat. If this is what you are looking for and really who isn't??? GO to Cherished Bridals! You will not be disappointed. Promise.
