The BEST Bridal Shop

Reviewed on 10/06/2015

I had the hardest time finding a dress for my wedding. I went to multiple other stores and tried on over 50 different dresses before finally discovering Jennifer's Bridal. From the moment I walked in, I knew I would find my dress here. The staff was amazingly helpful and... Read More extremely nice. Their selection was the best I found in all of the greater Philadelphia area. In fact, the first dress I tried on at Jennifer's was the dress I bought! Not to mention, I found a beautiful veil, head piece, and earrings all at once with my dress! My wedding was all the way in the Alabama, but the ladies at Jennifer's took care of all of the shipping logistics to make sure my dress made to Alabama in time for my wedding. I was also crunched for time for alterations, but their seamstress worked with my schedule and did and excellent job with the alterations. I strongly recommend this shop to anyone looking for the perfect wedding dress. The price was high, but the quality of dress and service I received from Jennifer's was the best I could have imagined. It was worth every penny. Jennifer's bridal is simply put, the absolute best!

Beautiful Bridal Salon, Beautifully Managed

Reviewed on 10/05/2015 Jackie D

I had the best experience at Jennifer's Bridal after visiting a few competitors in the Wilmington, DE area. The store was perfectly maintained and was welcoming with gorgeous white dresses lining the walls of the shop. I liked that this shop doesn't sell bridesmaid or MOB... Read More dresses; it creates a very personal and special experience for the bride. The employees at the store and Jennifer herself are incredibly helpful and genuine. They really make you feel important! They kept me informed from the day I bought my dress through the time it came in and assisted in getting the alteration appointments set up, which a busy wedding planning bride can really appreciate. My dress was perfect on my wedding day; I got so many compliments and I have Jennifer's Bridal to thank. I recommend to ALL brides in the tri-state area.

I would have to say I was so pleased with Jennifer's Bridal. Jen was so great in helping me with finding the perfect dress. I loved the feeling I got just walking into their place.

If I could give 6 stars, I would. Jennifer's Bridal was a highlight of the wedding planning process, I loved shopping there so much that I was thrilled to join one of my bridesmaids to find her dream dress there too! Jennifer's has the best selection of dresses in the area, in... Read More the most GORGEOUS boutique setting. Walking in, I had no idea what I was looking for in a dress but their staff immediately understood the look I was going for and helped me to nail down my dream look. I ended up walking down the aisle in a dress that completely surpassed my expectations. Jennifer's seamstress was also impeccable. Shop at Jennifer's!

I grew up about 10 minutes from Jennifer's and when it was time for me to go shopping, I knew I had to go to Jennifer's! Several women I went to high school with had raved about the salon and I couldn't wait to go shopping. (Go St Mark's Spartans!) Even though I now live in... Read More Baltimore, it was worth every drive back and forth!! I was especially lucky, because the gorgeous renovations had just been completed prior to my first appointment back in February of this year. Becca and Jennifer were so fantastic during my appointment and made me feel like I was like family, laughing and smiling and letting me try on as many gowns as I wanted! I had been in communication with the ladies prior to my appointment and had certain gowns in mind, but I loved how they threw in some others just for fun! When I first came out in "my gown" Jennnifer said to me, that was it! She was right! They showered me and my group of ladies with champagne when I said yes to the dress! I adored my Watters gown and it was perfect for my beach ceremony and the reception afterwards. El did my alterations and was beyond professional , so attentive, and made the gown fit me perfectly! It was so comfortable and I didn't want to take it off. If you live anywhere in the Mid-Atlantic, you MUST make it to Jennifer's! Love you ladies and thank you for finding me my dream gown!

Jennifer’s Bridal did an amazing job with my wedding gown for our June 2017 wedding! I started dress shopping about a year before my wedding. I shared my Pinterest board with the salon before my first appointment; Jennifer used this to pull dresses for me ahead of time, based... Read More on the looks from my Pin board. Several of the dresses she pulled were the exact dresses I pinned! I ended up purchasing the very first dress I tried on because Jennifer was so well prepared and made the appointment so easy for me. Susan was extremely accommodating for alterations. I was not living locally to the salon and had recently started a new job, so I was limited in my ability to return for multiple appointments. Susan was extremely understanding; she fit me in based on my availabilities, and made each appointment worthwhile. With only a handful of alterations appointments, Susan had the dress fitted to me like a glove. I had numerous guests tell me the dress looked like it was made just for me! Overall, I was extremely pleased with the level of quality, attention to detail, professionalism, organization, and friendliness set forth by Jennifer’s Bridal. I would definitely recommend this salon to anyone I know!

Had a wonderful experience with Jennifer's Bridal!

Wide array of dresses - not just wedding gowns but also MOB dresses and bridesmaid dresses, and lots of beautiful veils. The staff are so helpful and have a great eye for the style that will fit you and your vision for your dress - and your budget! They recently renovated their... Read More shop to expand it and now they have even more selection. Not too much there in the way of accessories, but that isn't their primary focus - they have some things there to give you an idea of what you could add to your dress. My seamstress also did an amazing job with my dress, even with some tricky alterations with the neckline. My only suggestion is they could improve with their communication with the brides on the arrival of orders - my veil did not come in when expected but I was not made aware until I asked them myself. Otherwise an amazing salon!!

I just LOVE Jennifer's Bridal! From the moment we walked in I knew this was the place! I felt like I had been just about everywhere looking for my dress and I FINALLY found it!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience so far with Jennifer's! My first trip to the salon was back in January for their 20th anniversary event. I wanted to go see Hayley Paige and see what it's like inside a bridal salon. It is such a beautiful store and getting to... Read More meet Hayley was definitely a highlight! In April, my mom and two maids of honor came with me to try on dresses. Jennifer was very patient and kind the whole time. She helped me pull dresses I had shown her pictures of and pulled a few suggestions. She also let my maids of honor choose dresses they wanted me to try. She was very personable and made us feel like we were longtime friends and that we were in no rush for time. I ended up choosing a Hayley Paige dress, and since Jennifer knew that I had met her, she was so kind to text Hayley pictures of me in the dress and share my story with her. How cool is that?! She also took the time to talk with us afterwards, take pictures for us and bring us champagne. We had such a great experience that my mom wants to go shopping for her MOB dress at Jennifer's! I can't wait to go back for my fittings and cannot express my gratitude enough for such a wonderful experience. This is the best place to go and you will feel like a one-of-a-kind bride!

If I could rate Jennifer's a zero, I would. I've never felt more disrespected. I had the "pleasure" of working with the OWNER of the establishment, Jennifer herself. During my appointment, there were two women hovering around my dressing room who were not with me and did not... Read More have an appointment. They were pointing at the dresses I was trying on and asking if they could try them on too. Instead of asking the women to look somewhere else until she was finished with my appointment, Jennifer helped them and assisted them during MY appointment that I had scheduled. She sent me out of my dressing room to see my mom and maid of honor alone while she went into the adjacent dressing room to assist two women during my appointment. It was a total disregard of my time. I am the first of my 10 best friends to get married, and I can guarantee I will NEVER recommend this place to any of them or anyone else. Please don't waste your time. It's a joke. No need for an appointment, you can just jump in on someone else's. Thanks for showing me what I don't want in a dress shopping experience. Pathetic.

I came in with high expectations. I had read reviews on the place and looked through the possible dresses that I thought I would have been able to try on. However, once I arrived, no one was at the front desk to sign me in. When I finally was taken in to try on some dresses (by... Read More the way, this was my first time trying on dresses and I made sure to mention that about 3 times) I was assigned to a dressing room with dresses from a previous bride and told to look around and find some dresses on my own...uhhhh what??? There were two other brides in this place and everyone seemed to place all of their attention on them while my mom, sister, future mother-in-law and I were left to fend for ourselves. I cried mid-session because I COULD NOT believe how horrible we were being treated. These other women were offered drinks while we, on the other hand, were not. I got barely any help and and several times, walked past who I believe was the manager, with a dress in my hands without any help. Needless to say, I wouldn't even be giving this place a star if I could help it. I WOULDN'T recommend this place to anyone. I made sure to fill out their application days in advance so that when I walked in, I could get the help I needed and have dresses that I would like, but they acted as if I had never filled anything out. Mind you, I had spoken to this woman over the phone about 2 or 3 times beforehand. They showed no interest in me and it didn't help that women who were doing nothing were found by my sister at some point, in my dressing room, talking to one another. This place and experience sucked.
