This bridal shop doesn't even deserve one star but it wouldn't let me post zero stars. I ordered a bridesmaid dress 5 months before a wedding (and paid in full $200) at that time. I never received the dress, and what is worse, they did not admi...
t to a mistake, they just strung me along with things like "it was being shipped" and "it will be here next week". Needless to say, I had to stand in a wedding with a dress that did not match the other bridesmaids and DID NOT RECEIVE MY MONEY BACK!!! DO NOT SHOP HERE!!!

I had been to 4 bridal shops before arriving at House of Brides. Jill greeted my mom, dad, sister and I very warmly and gave us her undivided attention for over an hour while I tried on dresses. She was relaxed and helpful, making the experie...
nce very low stress in comparison to the other shops that I visited. She provided her honest opinions and helped me make my final selection - under budget!
My mother, sister and 2 other bridesmaids also selected their dresses from this shop. Everything arrived according to her time estimates and in the correct sizes. No issues at all.
House of Brides does have a seamstress on site. Our first interaction was not the best. She only gave us a 1 hr time slot for 5 fittings. We felt very rushed. After a conversation with Jill, we went to lunch and came back for a second try - very important since we live nearly 2 hrs away. After that first fitting - everything went extremely smooth with the following fittings. The dresses were sized and fitted flawlessly. The work was beautiful!
I was extremely happy with my experience at House of Brides and would recommend it to other Maine brides.

The worst experience ever! The wedding invitations were no longer in stock. They told me nothing and kept stringing me along. For months I was told that they would be in. It got to the point that I went to David's Bridal for invitations. I gave...
them a second chance. I ordered three brides maid dresses. The dresses came in months late. When they finally did come in, they were the wrong dresses. I was asked " Well, do you like these dresses?" They were not any apologies. There wasn't any compensation. The right dresses finally came in a few days before the wedding.

I had such a wonderful experience here. Jill does a great job running this shop. I came in two years before my wedding, and Katie helped me find the perfect maggie sottero dress. My dress was taken in from a 12 to a 4/6 and it fit like a glove....
The seamstress was fantastic. I was scared to death until Judy eased my nerves with a perfect fit.

I went in and tried the dress on that I eventually bought 6 times before I actually bought it. I fell in love with the dress. It was stunning and I felt like Cinderella. Everytime I went to try it on, the employees made me feel special and beau...
tiful. I loved doing business with the House of Brides. They altered my dress and added everything that I wanted. My dress turned out perfect. I could not have been happier with my dress. Everyone told me the whole night how beautiful I looked and how I looked like Cinderella. I didn't want to take my dress off! My husband told me that it was not at all the dress that he was expecting, but that it was the perfect dress for me. I definately recommend the girls at the House of Brides!!

I started my search for THE wedding dress at House of Brides in December 2010. I searched through the dresses and picked out a few that I liked. One of the ladies picked one that she had on a different rack. I decided to give it a shot, even th...
ough it looked liked nothing I would try on. I tried on all the dresses, but it was the dress that the employee picked out for me... I fell in love with it and could picture myself wearing it on my wedding day. Although, part of me was thinking, what if there is something else out there, because this was the first place I had been to. I decided to go to a competitor and try on their dresses. The dresses at the other shop did not even compare to the dresses that House of Brides had. House of Brides is very clean and they are very careful with their dresses. I had House of Brides order my dress and it came in May 2011. They held onto my dress for over a year because my wedding wasn't until June 2012. Excellent service! Very personable staff. They remembered me whenever I came in, even after long periods of time. I would highly recommend House of Brides. You will not regret it!

When I went down to try on dress, I was greeted and helped wonderfully, and I found THE DRESS there. I was so excited. I ordered it, and one of the sales ladies said that when I came down to pick it up I could get a bussel put in because it too...
k just a few minutes and wasn't a problem. I live 3.5 hrs away so when I went back down I was expecting it. I got down there to pick up my dress and I went in the dressing room to try it on but I needed help because it tied up the back I peeked my head out the curtain and the lady that was supposed to be helping me had DISAPPEARED! So I waited like 5 minutes for her and when she still was no where to be found I took the dress off and started to get ready to go. She then reappeared and I asked about the bussel, to which she replied that it was a alteration and I would have to make an appointment and come back for it. Luckily the seamstress overheard our conversation and came out and offered to do it right then. I would not recommend this place to anyone, I was very disappointed at their service. That being said I loved my dress!

I found my dream dress here (on sale!) They did all of my alterations rather last minute due to our date change and they even dyed my shoes for me! Wonderful service and wonderful selection!!
