Julie's bridal boutique is a first-class act. From the moment you walk in the door, the experience, the TLC from Julie is wonderful. My daughter just got married 3/5/22 and Julie did it all, from wedding dress, bridesmaids and to the mom of the...
bride dress. Julie will not hold back if she sees something that does not look good on you. She takes every minute and spends it with you until you know that's the dress. Thank you, MS, Julie for making Tracie look so radiant on her special day, you are flawless. Always, Terry Calvert 3/13/2022

This woman is AMAZING! Her shop can be off-putting when you pull up but the upscale boutiques have nothing on Julie! I brought a picture of what I thought I’d want, discussed what features I loved, and she immediately says “oh I know the dress ...
you want and it’s better than this” ... and she was right! She is honest and knowledgeable. Hundreds of dresses in stock (and knows every single one and where it is) and willing to order samples of any dress you want to try! She also knows what her seamstress can do so she talks to you about the adjustments to make the dress YOURS. I’ve been to dress appointments with friends that the consultant finds dresses that fit only the exact specifications. But then you miss out on dresses that, maybe after removing the sleeves you hate, becomes your favorite! She can see through the “ugly” to make the dress of your dreams lol. But also - she made the appointment so fun and her energy is contagious! It was a whole experience!

Julie's is a tiny hole in the wall place that could easily be overlooked. But once you walk through the doors, it is chock full of gowns, and Julie knows where every single one is in her shop.
When I walked in, she sized me up and said "I'm t...
hinking of a dress for you, but I need to find it."
She pulled about a dozen dresses for me to try on, and was struggling to find the dress she was thinking of, but she didn't give up and about 25 minutes later she held it in her hand.
It was the 3rd dress I tried on, and immediately my breath was taken away. I felt like a fairy in it, and it felt like I was floating. I never wanted to take it off, Julie had correctly predicted the dress I would choose. But, she made sure I tried on a variety of different dresses just to be sure.
She takes great care and pride in her work, and it 100% completely honest and blunt with you, which I appreciated. But, you can tell she truly cares about all of her customers.
Julie's also offers free alterations, which is a HUGE plus. And they do incredible work.
My gown was a dream. And I'm so happy Julie eventually found it for me.
I'm so glad that I went to Julie's for my wedding dress, if you are looking, you should definitely make an appointment with her!

If I could give Julie's 10 stars, I would!! Julie's was recommended to me by my Matron of Honor, who got her wedding dress there. I had never heard of it, but I am now going to be headed there for any formal wear needs pretty much for the rest...
of my life. We got all the bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding gown at Julie's and I just can't imagine having gone through the process anywhere else. Julie and her seamstress are spunky and fun, so you need to be OK with that. But I loved it! They have beautiful dresses, and the best thing (besides the awesome people they are) is that the alterations are all included in the dress price. 2 of my girls lost significant weight during the course of the year leading up to the wedding. They basically remade the whole dresses for these girls (taking them in 7 inches or more) with no extra charge. I myself was losing weight right up to the wedding, and they just kept working on my dress until it was perfect. Julie is really seasoned at wedding gowns too... she picked out the gowns that would look best on me just by looking at me. My wedding dress was actually the first one she picked out for me: amazing. I can't wait for an excuse to go back and buy another dress from them!

Her seamstresses are extremely talented and will do anything to help make your dreams come true! My mom was so nervous about finding a dress and one day I convinced her to look around after my fitting. Julie and her seamstress helped my mom to find the perfect dress for her.

he would give me her honest opinion on what looked best on me.
Sure enough, she knew what would make me feel beautiful and confident, and I picked the dress she was thinking of all along. Alterations were included in my dress purchase (unheard of at other boutiques) and the ladies made me feel perfect. My dress fit beautifully. They assured me I could have as many fittings as I need to ensure everything was perfect, and that they could make any adjustments I needed.
My bridesmaids, my mother, and my groom's mother also went to Julie's. She truly made us all feel like part of the family. Going to Julie was one of the best choices I made this entire wedding process.

Met Julie and Aldina back in 2005 while searching for a prom dress for my oldest daughter. You will NOT find a sweeter, funnier, experienced couple of ladies anywhere! Over the years we have sent many customers to see Julie for all their prom/...
bridal needs and she impresses ALL! Recently we saw her for that same daughter's bridal gown - time does fly by! But nothing has changed at Julie's. Same wonderful 2 ladies that will make you feel special. She can tell by looking at you what will look best on you and no matter what you may think when you walk in- you will soon find out that SHE IS ALWAYS spot on. Just last month I took a very special young lady to see Julie. She had no idea what she wanted. Julie KNEW!!! When we left, the young lady sat in the car and looked at me. "I've heard the stories and now I have lived the experience- I STILL can't understand how she does it!" She bought her dream gown at that one visit. THAT IS THE MAGIC of JULIE'S.

ie was great to work with. She’s like the little Portuguese Aunt you never knew you had. She’s honest and she knows her stuff. She will find you the dress that you didn’t know you wanted. I walked in with 15 pictures of dress I liked, and she said “yes… no… maybe…. That would not look good on you… and we can work on that!” Let’s be honest, I could never walk through racks upon racks of thousands of dresses and know what I want. I needed her expertise and advice to find what I might like. The first 5 dresses she pulled for me I LOVED! I thought, oh no!, I am going to have the problem of liking too many!!! I went to 3 other stores and Julie’s dresses blew them out of the water. I ended up buying the 3rd dress I tried on. We never talked prices, but all the ones she brought me were reasonable in my budget (around 1,000).
Her shop is VERY busy, so when it came to alterations (which are included in the price of the dress- awesome), it took a little longer than I hoped, but I knew my dress was going to need a little extra attention, which they gave it.
If you are in the area, I highly recommend you check out Julie’s!

Julie helped make my day so great, she has so much personality and cares so much it's no wonder why when I asked around about where to get my dress people continually told me to go to Julie's. When going to pick out a dress she has brides come...
after hours so she can dedicate all the time possible to them and only them. Alterations are included in the price of her bridesmaid and bridal dresses, had I known this prior to ordering my bridesmaid dresses from elsewhere we would have no doubt used her for that too. She and the seamstress worked quickly and efficiently to make sure all alterations that were needed were done and my dress was perfect for my big day. Her enormous personality and love for her job goes miles beyond anything you will find in a bigger bridal shop. For any future needs we will be lifetime customers of Julie's now.

Alterations are included which is usually not the case at many other places I had gone to. My dress was absolutely gorgeous!!

I was in two wedding a year ago and both of the brides went to Julie's for their dress and the bridesmaids dresses and then i went to Julie's for my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses as well. The location is not in a great neighborhood and ...
it doesnt look nice on the outside and its a small store but Julie is the best.
She knows what looks good on you and she can be blunt about how you look in things but she means well. When I went into the store for my wedding I showed her a picture of a wedding dress that I liked but wanted something similar to that not that dress. She told me that she loved this dress for me and this will end of being my wedding dress, I didnt believe her. She actually had the dress in her store, it was the 2nd dress i tried on and I loved it, I tried on probably 10 dresses after that because Julie insisted that I make sure that I loved the dress in the picture. And she was right and I ended up with that dress! and the whole store is free alterations. You cant go wrong there!!

g you would see in the movies. Trying on tons of dresses, having fun, and it being a very personal time with my mother and sister. After going to Davids Bridal and Manhattan Bridal, I had given up all hope of finding a bridal store that would give me not only this experience, but a good experience. I stumbled upon Julie's Bridal after looking up places in New Bedford on Google. My first fitting was amazing! She had me try on at least 20 dresses and I ended up falling in love with the one dress I didn't plan on even trying on. She speaks what's on her mind and although some people don't want to hear that, it is very helpful. Pricing was extremely reasonable and ALTERATIONS ARE FREE!!!! When I did my final fitting, they took the dress in 3 times on site for me until I felt comfortable with it. Julie was always a pleasure to work with and there is an endless variety of dresses to choose from.

Julie's is a small shop, filled to the brim with dress choices. Julie works one-on-one with you to help you choose the best dress for you. She has lots of opinions (and shares all of them) and is soooooo helpful when trying to make a decision...
. When asking a wedding party member what she thought, her answer was vague. Julie had no share telling us just what she thought. And with that opinion, we were able to select a dress that was perfect for everyone in our party. Julie also helped my mother and mother-in-law select dresses that complimented our wedding colors, which made our wedding photos even better.
Alterations are FREE!!! Even though my gown had intricate lace and beading, there was no additional fee to make it fit me perfectly. The magic they work in the shop basement is unbelievable. In a matter of hours, they turned scrap fabric into a custom made sash for each of my bridesmaids. Because of Julie's, my wedding was one of a kind and more beautiful than I had imagined.
