About this Vendor
A Bridal Boutique
At Harbor Bridal, located in the quaint village of Cold Spring Harbor, New York, we strive to provide our brides with a unique and special experience, consisting of superior customer service in a personal environment. Our goal is to make every bride feel like the most important bride.
I don't even know where to start. Working with Leigh and Tori at Harbor Bridal has been the highlight of my wedding planning experience. It all began when I emailed the store and asked if they carried a dress I saw online. They didn't, but ordered a sample from the designer for me, free of charge. From the moment I walked into the store with my mom, I knew this would be an absolutely stress free experience. Leigh ordered fabric swatches from the designer so I can pick between the two color choices offered. After purchasing the gown, Leigh helped me find the perfect belt for my dress. She was so responsive to all of my emails and did everything she could to bring in samples. I even got an email from Leigh with a picture of a belt that she saw at a market that she thought I would like. She truly went above and beyond. Harbor Bridal makes you feel like their most important customer; I never felt like I was lost in the shuffle, which I might have felt at a larger store. They're quick to respond, offer great advice, and are just such a pleasure to work with. Now that my wedding is near, I'm sad that I won't have an excuse to email or visit every so often! On top of it all, they opened the store early for me to begin alterations to accommodate my schedule, and offered to open for me on a holiday so I can pick up my dress before my wedding without having to miss work. Being a small store, and working directly with the owners, allows them to be super accommodating and that was a huge plus for me in the weeks leading up to my wedding. Their selection might not be huge, but it will save you the time of sifting through all the millions of dresses out there because it's obvious they've curated a selection of the best of the best. I highly recommend going to Harbor Bridal if you want a stress free, care free, and fun experience.
Tori and Leigh were awesome!!! They were such lifesavers in my wedding dress selection process. After going to several bridal salons in NYC, and feeling as if the salespeople were pushing me to buy expensive dresses and not taking the time to think about the style I wanted, I was starting to feel panicked that I would have to settle on something. I found the NYC bridal boutiques to be incredibly overwhelming and stressful (at some, you weren't able to touch the dresses and others you were limited to an hour appointment). Harbor Bridal was the complete opposite experience. Tori and Leigh encouraged me to try on different styles, yet also listened to what I was envisioning and came up with awesome suggestions for me. They were incredibly HONEST, which you rarely see at boutiques. The dress that I ended up going with, I never would have tried on if it had not been for Tori's suggestion. Tori and Leigh really get to know their customer. Their boutique is small and intimate and they have an excellent selection of dresses. They know the designers they carry inside and out and can also get samples of ones they may not have in stock. After I picked the dress, they followed up with me after my fittings and the week before my wedding wishing me luck, which really meant a lot and shows how organized they are and how personalized they make the whole experience. I am from NJ and made the trip to Long Island based on a friend's suggestion and would encourage anyone to do the same! Definitely worth the trip!!! One in a kind bridal boutique and outstanding customer service!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Harbor Bridal. After what had been a very disappointing wedding dress shopping experience, working with owners Leigh and Tori was a breath of fresh air. I shopped at all of the major bridal boutiques in NYC and in Boston before finding Harbor Bridal -- if only I had known about them earlier! Upon entering their beautiful shop, I felt like I had their undivided attention. They made me feel beautiful in every single gown I put on, but when pushed for their opinions they were very helpful in making my appointment productive and narrowing down what I was truly looking for. It definitely helps that Leigh and Tori are quite fashionable themselves; I trust their opinions! I purchased my Lela Rose gown and Lela Rose bridesmaids dresses there and they fit everyone perfectly! Leigh spoke with each and every one of them to make sure they ordered the right size based on their measurements. It was a much more personalized experience than the larger bridesmaid dress retailers. Harbor Bridal also has an amazing selection of bridal shoes (got mine there), veils (getting my mom's veil refurbished through them), hair accessories, and more. Harbor Bridal turned out to be a one-stop-shop for me-- how convenient during such a busy time! If you are looking for individualized attention and an extraordinary level of customer service, Harbor Bridal is your place. It's definitely worth the trip to Cold Spring Harbor from NYC or anywhere in the Tri-state area-- Cold Spring Harbor is an adorable little town. You could make an afternoon of it!
I absolutely loved working with Leigh and Tori. They were far and away the best part of planning my wedding. Every single interaction I had with them (and there were a lot, mostly because I kept looking for reasons to come visit) was filled with excitement and joy. They made me feel like part of their family, put me at ease throughout and turned what I know can be a stressful process to one that was seamless and fun. I would highly recommend these women to anyone looking for a wedding dress, whether they live on Long Island or not! Oh, and the dress was incredible, too!
Amazing experience. So patient, kind and helpful. Really make you feel comfortable. And the dresses are beautiful! No other place compares to the service and style of this place. Walked out having picked a dress that was MADE for me. Telling all future brides about this place.
I purchased a bridesmaid dress at this salon for my best friend's wedding and our time spent here was truly amazing. Tori and Leigh were a joy to work with. They kept the experience fun and lighthearted, yet professional. I can't wait until I'm a bride one day so I can come here for my bridal needs! I highly recommend Harbor Bridal, you will not be disappointed with their service or selection.
Tori and Leigh were amazing. They were so accommodating and easy to talk to. I went to a few other Long Island bridal salons before finding Harbor Bridal, what a breath of fresh air. I didn't feel pressured or that they were forcing anything on me. It was relaxed and exactly what I was looking for. I'm so happy that I bought my dress from them. I would highly recommend this salon
Tori and Leigh were so great to work with. They are so nice and you feel like they are your friends when you go there. I did one of the VIP apts with my family and we had such a great day. the salon is so nice and welcoming! They have beautiful dresses. I ended up not picking my wedding dress there but I am getting my beautiful Joanna August bridesmaid dresses from the salon and am super excited to see my bridesmaids in these beautiful gowns!! This is the only salon on LI that carries the designer which is awesome because their dresses are gorgeous! I may even have to get one for myself!
THE BEST! Harbor Bridal is the place to go! Tori and Leigh are incredible to work with, and you won't find the same experience anywhere else. The store is beautiful, with a wide selection of classic wedding dresses, high quality fabrics, veils, accessories & bridesmaid options! They are experts at what they do, professional and efficient. Extremely enjoyable and special dress shopping experience!
There are not enough words to describe how happy it made me to work with Leigh & Tori at harbor bridal. With 12 bridesmaids ... the task of finding the perfect dresses for each of them was not an easy one. Leigh & Tori made the process so much fun and relaxing when I was so stressed and indecisive. I felt like I was best friends with the owners - they made myself, my family and my friends feel right at home in their amazingly BEAUTIFUL shop. My friends loved this place just as much as I did and they all said they'd be coming back for their weddings. Both Leigh & Tori were helpful, honest, sweet and patient with all of us. Honestly, picking out the bridesmaid dresses was one of my favorite things about planning my wedding- all thanks to harbor bridal. I can't wait to go back & try dresses on, for myself, for my sisters wedding next year ! I recommend Harbor Bridal to anyone and everyone - they are the best!!!!! You will not be disappointed. :)
Tori and Leigh were amazing to work with! They made choosing bridesmaid dresses so fun and easy! They were prompt, organized and so professional! I loved working with them and would highly recommend them for bridal and bridesmaid dresses!!
Harbor Bridal should have been my first and only bridal store I went to! After 5 different fittings with my first dress...two weeks before my wedding I did what I should have done from the start... I called to schedule an emergency appointment. Within 15 minutes I had the most perfect dress and was out the door to the seamstress they recommended (It only took her 1 fitting to make the dress absolutely perfect!). Without Harbor Bridal, my day wouldn't have been the same. The owners are professional, sweet, and super accommodating to say the least! If you want to feel as beautiful as you will look on your wedding day, you need to start at Harbor Bridal! Don't forget they have Bridesmaid dresses there too!!
The ladies at Harbor Bridal were amazing! They were not pushy and honest. They have a beautiful selection of styles and designers. I have been recommending Harbor Bridal since I got my dress. If you are looking for a dress, you MUST go to Harbor Bridal!
The best!! Tori and Leigh made the whole experience so fun and easy. I got my bridesmaids dresses here too - one stop shopping!
What an amazing experience I had finding my wedding dress at Harbor Bridal. Tori and Leigh made the evening so special for both myself and my family. The shop is so personal and quaint, I highly recommend it!!
I got married on October 1st, 2016. I didn't realize how hard it would be for me to find the "perfect" wedding gown and after searching and trying on dress after dress I finally found my dream dress at harbor bridal. I was looking for a small boutique place on Long Island (which was not easy to find) for a long time and randomly came across Harbor Bridal on the Knot. From the second I walked into the store - I knew I would find my dress. Harbor Bridal offered a uniqueness that I couldn't find anywhere else. I had a specific look in my mind of what I wanted my dress to be and I found it after 10 min of being in the store. Tori and Leigh were so helpful and made me feel comfortable and at ease from the start. They offer an experience that I couldn't find in any other bridal store and I would recommend Harbor Bridal to any bride I come across. The order process of my dress wad quick, easy, and effeciant. Tori and Leigh answered any question I had throughout the process and I couldn't have chosen a more special place to purchase my wedding dress from.
I purchased a dress and veil from Harbor Bridal and I cannot imagine having gone anywhere else! For the bride looking for one-on-one service, and high quality designer gowns, this is the place the go!! Leigh and Tori were an absolute joy to work with, from the moment I first reached out to them to book an appointment, until after my wedding day. These two put their heart and soul into the business, and it shows. I felt that they were truly invested in my happiness; they were constantly checking in leading up to the wedding to ensure that alterations were going well and that I didn't have any questions. Harbor Bridal was the first, and only, place I went to try on gowns. I flew all the way from Alaska to find a gown in Cold Spring Harbor, and it was well worth it!! When it finally came time for my appointment and trying on gowns, we had the place to ourselves and did not feel rushed or pressured in any way. It was a perfectly pleasant experience. I highly recommend Leigh and Tori and Harbor Bridal. Hands down one of the best vendor experiences of the entire wedding.
After shopping at several bridal salons big and small all over Manhattan, I stumbled upon Harbor Bridal and instantly felt at ease and fully taken care of the minute I walked in. Their shop is stunning, dresses are unique, beautiful, and one of a kind. The best part about Harbor Bridal are the sisters who own and operate it. They are the BEST! Leigh and Tori were there every step of the way, they felt more like friends than shop owners. Anything that I needed altered, changed, or even just a simple reassurance that everything will be perfect (which it was!) these women provided. They are smart, warm, and truly such pleasures to work with. I have recommended them to every bride to be I know because of how wonderful and lovely my experience with them was. Thank you Leigh and Tori!!
I will first that say that I didn't buy my dress here but I wanted to review them because they were so great, the shop is so clean and they welcome you as the private appointment vs. everyone else on Long Island that is just a mass produced warehouse of crap dresses. I was looking at Lela Rosa dresses here that were just beautiful, but ultimately went elsewhere for a unique gown. Highly recommend this boutique.
Harbor Bridal is fantastic! Everything about my experience from start to finish was top notch. The owners, Leigh and Tori, were welcoming from my first phone call to make an appointment. The store is beautiful and I got their full attention with every visit. I had been to several stores before I found Harbor Bridal and even though it is smaller than some of the other stores I had been to, it has a large selection of gowns and I loved several that I tried on. I ended up ordering a custom gown as well as a matching veil and they were responsive and informative every step of the way. They even took the time to email me on my wedding day to wish me the best. I can't recommend them highly enough!
My experience with Harbor Bridal is absolutely amazing! Leigh and Tori are so nice, helpful and professional during the process and their dresses are beautiful too! I visited a lot of places before landing on harbor bridal and HB is definitely one of the best on long island and new york city! They care about customers and provide the best service to you. Will recommend Harbor Bridal to all my friends who are going to be brides and I am sure they'll be super satisfied!
Working with Leigh and Tori at Harbor Bridal was beyond wonderful. They are such sweet sisters and they bonded with my whole family. The setup of the shop with their one-bride-at-a-time appointment style made me feel like the most special bride while I was trying on their dreamy selection of dresses. I even found a dress on Pinterest that was by a designer they carry, but they didn't have the dress so they reached out to another store in Miami and were able to borrow the dress for me to try on (it ended up being THE ONE)! Overall they go above and beyond to make the whole experience fun and unforgettable. They helped me find a veil, set me up with one of their wonderful seamstress partners, and have continued to reach out to me even after the final payment was made and the dress was picked up. Harbor Bridal is truly the best!
Harbor Bridal was the most wonderful experience I could have ever imagined for picking my wedding dress. Leigh and Tori have created a beautiful, intimate environment where each bride can feel special. They gave me their undivided attention to help me find the dress of my dreams. Not only did they listen to what I was looking for, they were able to bring dresses into the store that I wanted to try. I would recommend Harbor Bridal to any bride looking for a magical dress shopping experience.
Harbor Bridal provided an experience that all brides look for! Not only is the store absolutely beautiful, but they only see one bride at a time. The owners, Tori and Leigh, provide individual attention which makes the process that much more special. After purchasing my dress at Harbor Bridal, Tori and Leigh guided me through my fittings and were always available for questions. Additionally, they truly find joy in giving brides the best experience possible! If you are looking for a gorgeous dress, a professional environment, and owners who care about the customer, go to Harbor Bridal!
I highly recommend Harbor Bridal for brides looking for a great selection of beautiful high quality wedding gowns and accessories. I had such an amazing experience at Harbor Bridal and found my beautiful wedding dress with the help of owners Tori and Leigh who were incredibly sweet, down to earth and knowledgeable about the wedding industry. They were absolute professionals, kind and patient and made me feel very comfortable in answering all my questions and with their help I found the dress I adore! I was so impressed by the excellent, caring service I received. I cannot say enough about how attentive they were to me. The boutique is stunning, fresh and light and the dresses were beautifully displayed. I was treated as an individual and it felt very special to experience the only bride to be, as they book one appointment at a time, I felt like a princess! A wonderful experience, thanks to Tori and Leigh at Harbor Bridal!
