I purchased my bridesmaids dresses and rented the tuxes here for wedding this past April. The girls here are very knowledgable and helpful! They answered all my questions and kept me in the loop about everything. They are flexible and made changes without hesitation if I changed something. Very happy with this store and definitely recommend to others!
Megan and Jenna at Hello Beautiful were such a joy to work with! They always made me feel comfortable and cared about which was nice since planning a wedding can be stressful. We did the tuxes through them too from Tip Top Tux and it was so easy and nice to have it all in the same spot! Highly recommend this place to engaged couples!!!
Hello Beautiful has a great selection of stylish, modern dresses! The owners were very helpful and were able to help me find the perfect dress for my wedding! I wish that they could have done in-house alterations on the dress, but they gave good recommendations for seamstresses in the area. They also steamed my dress for free before the wedding!
I am writing this review because picking out your wedding dress is a BIG DEAL and you want to make sure it is in experienced hands for alterations. That was not the case in my situation. I will start at the beginning, which was a wonderful experience. Living out of state, I was really set on getting a dress in Kearney because my mom, who has cancer, lives in Kearney and cannot travel. The owners were considerate and patient with us while I picked out the dress I wanted, which was in April 2016. At the time, the dress I wanted did not fit me where it clasped across the back, so they suggested ordering 2 sizes bigger. Note: I did say I planned on losing weight, but they convinced me that I really needed 2 sizes larger (size 16). A few months later (and 10+ pounds lighter) I flew in to try on the dress they had ordered. The dress was huge and I felt like I was drowning. At that fitting, they suggested putting in D cups to fill in the empty space between my body and the dress, then convinced me that with some quick-fix alterations, it would fit the next time I came in. I again expressed concern that it seemed way too big for me. This was PRIOR to any alterations. Since this is their profession though, I trusted their judgement and felt that they had the means to alter it, correctly. I came in a month later to find they did half of the alterations that they said they would. Unfortunately, the alterations that they did complete were awful. The back of the dress hung on me. I could fit both my arms in the back of my dress where it zipped up. When I sat down, my underwear was visible it was so saggy. They claimed it should "fit loosely" and that was how it was supposed to look. I requested to try on the original dress that I fell in love with the first time (a size 12) again...only to find that it fit me like a glove. I asked if there was any way I could exchange/swap their 12 for the 16, but I got a blank stare and a response of, "This is your dress, we can't sell it to anyone else because we already altered it." AKA, we messed up the alterations so badly we can't reverse them and sell it to anyone else. I was charged $100 for "alterations" that were a complete disaster. There was no sympathy from the person who did my alterations. Even after our wedding, I am affected by the experience and hope that this does not happen to anyone else. My request to the owners of this establishment is to not advertise or tell Brides-to-Be that someone on staff can do alterations when they clearly are not experienced or capable of this. The seamstress that I found, last second, had to take all of their "alterations" out and start from scratch. Seeing my dream dress all cut up in front of me, 5 days before the wedding, was traumatizing. She is a life saver and was able to alter the dress appropriately so it actually fit. It would be appreciated by future brides to give them a recommendation of someone in town to do their alterations, especially with how meaningful and expensive wedding dresses are. They have beautiful dresses here and the ladies know their fashion, but I would avoid alterations here at all costs!
Every time I walked into the store I was greeted by one of the girls! They made me feel beautiful and important!
These girls are great to work with! They were very patient with me when choosing a wedding dress, as I am very indecisive. They were easy to work with when it came to bridesmaid dresses as well! I love that they have an affordable line of maids dresses that still look great. I am so happy with their wonderful customer service! Highly recommend!
