Great little shop to find a dress

Reviewed on 3/12/2014 Jessica B

The ladies here are very friendly, and there are so many dresses, and they always have a good deal. Every time I went for a fitting, I saw so many dresses at a good price I couldn't look anymore as I had already chosen my dress. I would go here before you settle on a dress...

Mindy was amazing - she ordered a dress for me that she did not previously have in store, altered it and made it PERFECT! The whole process was non-stressful and she was awesome.

Fabulous Dress!

Really nice and helpful ladies. Bought my dress during their week long Black Friday sale. Great deal and they kept my dress until I needed to pick it up.

Mindy was great to work with. She helped me customize my dress, making several alterations in order to achieve the style I wanted. She was easy to work with, reliable and a great value.

One word…Mindy! She is the owner of Jaclyn’s Bridal and an amazing person. We were mostly window shopping trying to get an idea of what bridesmaid dresses cost and on a whim we stopped by her wonderful boutique. She let my MOH try on the dress without an appointment. I was... Read More looking at wedding dresses and my MOH asked if I could try some on, again no appointment. I fell in love with the second dress I tried on. Mindy gave me an incredible deal on the dress and a great relationship began. Note, this is a boutique store with a knowledgeable owner and seamstress, not a plush champagne serving, charge you an arm and a leg for a dress shop. Mindy has a great ability to help each bride / bridesmaid / MOG find a dress that fits their individual style. My 7 bridesmaid were able to pick out the style they wanted in the Victorian Lilac Color. Mindy is great about helping to pick out sizes that do not need lots of alterations later. Her alteration pricing is very fair and she does most of the work herself. Brides are also able to rent veils, headpieces and jewelry from her. I rented my veil and headpiece and purchased my earrings and a bracelet from Jaclyn’s. We all looked great in our dresses and received lots of compliments. Do yourself a favor and get your wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses here.

This was my first stop in my search for finding a wedding gown. I had spent several months researching the kind of dress I wanted, put together a little inspiration board, and then found this place through "The Knot." On my first visit, I was introduced to Mindy. She asked... Read More me what my budget was, and it happened to be lower than what was available. Instead of telling me to look elsewhere, she worked with me on it. She came up with a special exception for me. In a price that was just only a little over what I was asking, she let me rent a dress, and included the veil and alterations in the price. After trying on about 5 dresses, I found "the one." It was a shorter dress (about ankle-length at the time) with a beautiful sparkly band, and pockets (design: Enzoani Elkedra). When I tried it on it was strapless, but Mindy told me that it had the option to be customized on the top, with tops that attach to the dress. I thought the dress was adorable and it fit my taste 100%. I made an appointment for a second visit, this next time would be to try on different tops. Upon the second visit I tried on several different tops, but this time did not find anything I was too jazzed about. After describing what I had in mind, Mindy told me she could order something similar or even create it. During this visit, my mom and I found a little discount rack in the corner of older bridesmaids and mother of the bride dresses. My cousin was getting married soon, as well, so we picked out two little pretty dresses for the occasion. For my third visit, Mindy brought in an adorable little sheer top that had cute little daisy embellishments bordering the neckline and the sleeves. She picked it up just for me at a bridal convention in Chicago! I was absolutely blown away at the lengths she went to making me a happy bride. Getting this top was incredibly generous of her. During this visit we also altered the dress from hanging by my feet to a cute tea-length. The dress had also been cleaned by this point, as well. My fourth visit was about a week or so ahead of the wedding. I tried it on and made sure it fit. It was a little snug, so Mindy let it out just a bit and waxed the zipper so my mom would have less difficulty zipping me up on my wedding day. At this time, I also picked out a veil, which went to the middle of my back and had a sparkly border which matched my dress's band perfectly. My fifth visit was picking up the dress! Mindy was helping another bride when I arrived, but made sure to see I got my dress and gave me best wishes. Overall, a fantastic experience. I would like to point out a second time, that I was a special exception. Still, I will definitely recommend this boutique to any bride who is looking for a gown!

I went to Jaclyn's Bridal on my lunch break since it was so close to my work. I didn't at all expect to find the dress there, but the owner made me an offer I could not refuse. She gave me an advance on her sale that she has annual. It was a really great sale- 75% off!! I got my... Read More dress for less than 500 and it was a couture dress valued at 2,000! I really loved the owner's sense of style and professionalism. You could tell immediately that she knew what she was doing and was not just some worker in a bridal store. She's a designer and wonderful seamstress. The cost for my alterations was a little pricy compared to others, but I ended up forking over the money because I knew she knew what she was doing and would not make a mistake. The store is really flexible and nice to go into. I recommend this small, charming bridal boutique. The owner really knows her stuff!

I made an appointmemt with this salon to come in to try dresses on for the first time ever! The dress selection there was beautiful but minimal compared to the place i went to after this. My mom was running late and got lost in the parking lot, while I wanted to wait to put... Read More dresses on the lady NOT subtly hinted that they like to stay on schedule and they have appointments coming in in the next half an hour so it was best to get started. I felt completely rushed and it made my MOH uncomfortable like we were just a pain to be there. Also maybe 1 dress i tried on actually fit. Their samples are SMALL!! so if your a girl who is a size 10/12 like me and feel self conscious as-is don't go here! Most of the dresses I couldn't even pull over my hips. needless to say I left in tears. Plus the dress that i really wanted I couldn't even get on. My experience was awful. I ended up going somewhere else who were SO much more friendly and nicer and who samples were 12-14 range so that they can just clip you in like most places do. I thought with all the great reviews this place would be the best and it was an experience I can't take back. Maybe i just got unlucky.

Beautiful Dresses at the right Price!

I couldn’t have asked for a better shopping experience than the one that I had at Jaclyn’s Bridal. I originally planned to get my dress from David’s Bridal, but figured I would go to a few smaller salons just to see what was out there. Jaclyn’s Bridal was the first salon I... Read More went to and they blew me away. Everything was so civilized and elegant. I was the only bride in the salon and I walked around pointing at every dress that I wanted to try one while my bridal attendant put them in my dressing room. I ended up trying on 12 dresses and picked the first one I tried on. Additionally, the seamstresses are EXCEPTIONAL. My dress fit like a glove before we even made alterations (due to a lot of experience), but the seamstress turned my dress from beautiful into PERFECTION. I didn't love the sweetheart neckline so they actually changed it for me. I also added a monogram (as my something blue) in the underside of the dress. Overall, an amazing experience and I will definitely recommend to anyone wanting a beautiful dress and outstanding service!

Jaclyn's Bridal is a breath of fresh air.

Mindy at Jaclyn’s Bridal is AMAZING! I came to her after a bad experience at a store nearby. I had found a dress at the other location, but because of the service, did not want to purchase from them.

Mindy also offered to help accessorize my dress (they have an amazing selection of jewelry and sashes to rent) and helped choose colors and styles for my entire bridal party, including the groomsmen!
