sing a dress and were fine with me coming another day when I was ready to make a decision. The seamstresses were kind and helpful, as well as efficient, during the fitting. The prices are fantastic, the service is incredible, the dresses are stunning, and I don't know why every dress shop doesn't do the piecing together rentals. It's amazing and I have recommended Gowns by Pamela to almost everyone I know.

I can't recommend this place enough! Especially if you are not a typical off-the-rack size and you don't want to pay a fortune for a custom dress or tons of alterations. I knew I wanted to rent my dress, but I am 5'0 and curvy. I tried on doze...
ns of dresses and none of them fit right, especially the standard sizes rentals and sample dresses at other stores. I was starting to get really discouraged...until I came in to Gowns by Pamela! The experience was night and day. I picked elements I liked (lace skirt, elbow sleeves, v neck, etc) and the consultant immediately pulled out all the pieces and laced me into a gown that was everything I wanted in a dress, and best of all, it actually fit my body! I couldn't be happier with the dress I chose. I can't wait to be married in it! (8.17.19)

To this day, I get compliments on my dress. I love that I rented my gown and don't have to lug it around for the rest of my life! Saved us a ton of money too! Best decision ever! Go see Pamela!

The selection is very limited and they never let you go into the closet and let you pick what you want. Instead, they ask what style you want and pick out what is available at the moment. The first time I visited they had great service. After t...
hey have got the deposit from you, they don't seems to care that much anymore. The second time I visited, it was not a good experience. I ended up chose not to rent from them and got half of the deposit back. NOT WORTH IT!

My dress was absolutely beautiful! You can mix and match the top, sash, and skirt to form the wedding dress that you like. At first, I settled on a dress due to lack of time. However, after leaving the store, I called them up and asked if I cou...

Gowns by Pamela is a bridal gown rental service. I thought it was a great option because I knew I would never use my bridal gown again, and a Pamela's it was about 1/5 of the price I was looking at if I were to buy a dress. The dresses come in ...
two pieces, which sounds super weird, but once you have the dress on you can't tell at all. It turned out perfectly for me!

I picked out my dress in October and was not allowed to see it for 8 months (the day before my wedding) to pick it up. (They charge you an additional price if you come in to see the dress you are renting). When I came to pick it up the sleeves ...
were long sleeved (NOT what I had ordered) and they had to quickly sew new cap sleeves onto it while I waited. They didn't seem to care or be apologetic at all about the mistake. The sleeves ended up unraveling and ripping open at my reception. The dress WAS beautiful though and I was happy with the way it turned out. But for the price I was charged for the rental I felt it was kind of a rip off.

My wedding budget was tight, and renting a dress was probably the smartest decision I ever made. I chose Gowns by Pamela (the Salt Lake location) because it was the only rental place in Utah I could find. They did a tremendous job. I got an app...
ointment quickly, and the girl who helped me (Kat, I believe) was friendly, and put me at ease. She showed me several dresses- and it only took 4 before I found the perfect one! She did a great job of showing me stuff that was flattering. I should mention that I am plus size, and was looking for a strapless, and they had plenty of selection for me- I was very pleasantly surprised. A few days before my wedding I went in for my final fitting, and this time it was with the owner, Lisa. She was so sweet, and did lots of last minute alterations to make my dress look fabulous! I was so pleased with how I looked. The value is incredible. For the price of a cheap David's Bridal gown, I got the initial fitting, final fitting with alterations, the petticoat, dress, veil, and tiara. They let you keep the dress for 5 days, so I had plenty of time to return it. I can't recommend Gowns by Pamela enough!
