I had the best experience shopping at La Reine. Davine helped me at both of my appointments and she was great. There was a bit of a mixup at first with my appointment not being confirmed, but they were able to squeeze me in! I had my eye on a Maggie Sottero dress that I found online - they had a slightly different version of the dress that I fell in love with!!! Davine helped to complete the look with a veil and suggested adding a belt, which looked awesome. I made a follow-up appointment so that I could show my mom and a few more friends (I only brought one friend with me for my first appointment) and purchase the dress. The dress was very close to my size so I was able to buy it off the rack!! I will be going back to finalize my accessories, and they recommended Elena Bridal Studio for alterations (she's right in the same building, and the prices looked reasonable!). Overall, Davine and the rest of the La Reine staff were very professional and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding dress! La Reine rocks!
The first time I visited the salon I had an idea of the type of dress I wanted - I really loved crepe wedding gowns and many of my favorites were styles in the Pronovias line. I was very pleased with the wide selection that La Reine had of these types of dresses (something that I had had a harder time finding elsewhere). Courtney helped me during both of my visits (the first time to browse the collection and the second time to actually make the purchase). She was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable right away. I didn't feel pressured to make a purchase or to make a quick decision. She let me sit in the dress a bit and helped me to narrow down my options so that I wasn't consistently looking at five dresses that I thought I loved equally. I really appreciated her insight and had a very positive experience throughout the browsing, buying and pick-up.
I bought my dress for La Reine a couple of months ago and I cannot say enough great things about this company! The owner is an absolute doll and were so accommodating to everything I was looking for. Liz was awesome she was so sweet and they have a ton of designers to select from. I absolutely loved my experience and would recommend to any bride looking for their dream dress.
I came here last summer to try my luck at looking at bridal gowns. They helped me narrow down what I really loved, and I actually found my DREAM dress!!! I felt welcomed and cared for, and I am so excited to wear my dress! Also, we were pleasantly surprised that we saved thousands on our budget. I was stunned. I know that if I were to buy the same dress elsewhere, I would have had to consider spending well beyond our budget limit. Thank you so much! Next, the fittings!
They are amazing! I found my dress here with Brin and loved every minute of it. Even when I wasn't sure I was going to buy the dress, I was never pushed on making a decision. She really knew what to put me in and made the appointment great! I loved this place and would HIGHLY recommend any bride to go there! Prices were good too and you get 20% off if you buy the sample off the rack :)
I was terribly disappointed in my visit to La Reine. I am hesitant to write this review, however I think it is important to share with other brides. I had an appointment here, and we were greeted and swept into the front room right away. I was open to trying any dress, because... you just never know what would look good. I tried on (attempted to try on) about 4 dresses, and all 4 were awful and did not fit. I wear a size 12, so I know I am not a skinny minnie, but I know I am not a huge whale. They sure did make me feel like a huge whale and told me they don't get many people in there "my size" and they had nothing in there to fit me. She even had me come out to show my family as she held a dress in front of me. I was humiliated! Needless to say, I did not find my dress here!
Deffiently a place to go in if you still haven't found your dress or having trouble. The workers are really helpful in trying to do everything for you and listen to you. Very sweet and the owner is kind. Their prices will help you stay within your budget too. I highly recommend giving it a chance.
Terrible. They will say anything to get a sale.... do not trust them
I didn't have an appointment, and La Reine took me in anyways! I ordered my dress same day. They were great to work with and everyone lived my dress! Thank you for helping me find the most important dress of my life!
I have mixed feelings about this place. On one hand I planned a wedding in three months and they were great about the timeline. Other places I went too gave me a lot of grief saying I needed at least 6 months to get a dress. La Reine worked with my timeline and budget and I found THE dress. On the other hand they will say anything for a sale. The owner told me that the seamstress could do things with the dress that I later found out could not be done. Also they have a no return policy for all purchase which is absurd for accessories especially if you try to return something (not the dress) a month before the wedding; which is what I tried to do with a belt and the veil I got from them. When I tried on my dress at the seamstress' I realized the belt did not match because the seamstress' studio had better lighting. I trusted them when they said the belt looked good with the dress (after all they do this for a living) but as it turned out they lie to get a sale. I also had issues with the veil they ordered for me. I told them I like a particular style but wanted it with a blusher. The veil came in without a blusher and they said it was my fault because I signed off on the order. How was I to know "style xyz" did not have a blusher? One final incited I had with them was they said they would cover the cost of fixing broken buttons on the dress. I used their seamstress so they could have communicated with her but they did not and I got charged.
I bought my dress last summer for my 6/17 wedding. The staff at La Reine were great! I fell in love with a picture of my Maggie Sottero dress online when I had first gotten engaged, I went to 2 other salons before La Reine and neither had been able to show me anything remotely similar to the dress. My first visit to La Reine I tried on many beautiful dresses that I fell in love with but was unable to commit because I still really loved the dress I saw online. A few days later the salon called me up saying they located the Maggie Sottero dress I had been searching for! I went back the next day and immediately knew it was the dress I wanted. Absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much La Reine for helping me locate the dress!
Loved shopping for my gown here and working with the seamstress. It was such a fun experience for my mom and I each time! The gowns are GORGEOUS!
I had a really wonderful experience at La Reine Bridal and although I didn't find my dress there, I would recommend it to anyone! The young woman who helped me was really lovely and I felt like a VIP. They also really respected my budget ($1500) and had a LOT of options in that range.
I have been to other bridal shops to search for my dress but none could compare to this one in quality of service. I can't begin to explain the amazing experience I had at La Reine. I was helped by Davine and she was truly Divine. Davine was extremely attentive and a great listener. I went in the store with ideas of what I wanted and Davine provided me with so many options that fit the description of what I was searching for only to realize that it wasn't the best fit for me. I thought I loved lace but it turned out that I love bling even more! I tend to be very picky and change sometimes I change my mind but I never felt rushed. I never felt like I was tiring her out and I always saw the enthusiasm to continue to help me search for what was "the dress". The help I received was so personable and my guests and I felt so welcomed and comfortable. Davine was so professional and so friendly she made me feel like she was part of my bridal court in the way she was helping me. I loved every second of my appointment and I would recommend La Reine to every bride to be. I'm so happy I went there and I did find my dream dress there thanks to Davine and her enormous amount of patience with me. Thanks Davine!!!
This place has the potential to be a great bridal salon but the customer service is something to be desired. There are better selections and a better experience to be had elsewhere.
Everyone that helped me out at La Reine was incredibly professional and sweet. I never felt pressured to make a decision; on the contrary, I was always encouraged to think about what I wanted. I was late several times and the staff there was so understanding. Liz was amazing at knowing exactly what I wanted and found me the perfect dress. I had a wonderful experience overall.
I was disappointed by my experience shopping for my wedding dress at La Reine. Upon making the appointment, I was told to email the shop in advance with some ideas of what I was looking for. I went ahead sent them a list, but when I arrived for the appointment none of the dresses that had been pre-pulled for me resembled the ones I shared. As the appointment continued, the consultant grew increasingly frustrated with me because a) I wasn't liking anything I was trying on, and b) I was open to a few different types of dresses and not 100% committed to a particular style. She kept pressuring me, saying that "I needed to make up my mind". Also be advised that they will not share information regarding the size or designer of the dresses that you try on. Perhaps most indicative was at the end of the appointment, the consultant fed me false information regarding lead times for ordering dresses from various designers in an effort to force me to buy a dress - despite the fact that I did not like any of the ones I tried on. This suspicion was validated when I had another appointment the following day, and the consultant at the other shop assured me that I was well within the appropriate ordering window that would ensure I receive my dress on time. Overall, I would only recommend La Reine to brides who know exactly what type of dress they are looking for - and even then I would suggest going elsewhere first given the pressure I faced and La Reine's lack of transparency with designer/sizing information.
Mirielle, Pat and all the staff at LaReine in Waltham are truly wonderful. I started working with them about a year ago to prepare for my 11.5.16 wedding and I can tell you off the bat all their hearts are in the right places. Never once did I feel that they were trying to make a dollar off me. They truly go out of their way to listen and assist you in every need. Their dresses are so different, stunning and there is something for every bride there ! Moreover, when I found bridesmaid dresses I loved, although they didn't carry it, Mirielle, the owner, went through great lengths to order them from me- and it was from 2 different designers! All my girls loved going there too. Towards the end, I started getting nervous and jittery and would have breakdowns about my dress (I wanted to make a couple changes to the top of it), all the staff remained patient and calm with me and they brought my visions to life with their wonderful seamstress, Elena. My dress was a beautiful gown by the French company - Farage. I did not find anything else like it anywhere and the compliments I'm getting are so overwhelming. If you want good quality not only in the dresses they sell, but in customer service, then please go see Mirielle, Pat and everyone at LaReine Bridal. They know service and how to make you feel comfortable during your process and beautiful on your big day!
Such great service! They were all so nice and genuinely happy and excited for me! Also found a one of a kind dress
I bought my bridal gown, vail and bridesmaids dresses from here! I loved my experience as a bride Deema was very helpful in listening to what I wanted and let me pick out some dresses on my own. I fell in love with the second dress I tried on! The atmosphere is very relaxing, supportive and comforting. My bridesmaids however had a different experience ( hence the four stars instead of five). The bridesmaid dress prices were a little less than other stores including vows which is suppose to be discounted. All of the bridesmaids looked beautiful on the wedding day however they were all advised to order the dresses in three sizes too big! They were swimming in thier dresses when they received them and had to get unnecessary alterations which costs them more money. Besides the sizing issue for the bridesmaids only I had no issue with sizing for my dress I would highly recommend la reine bridal! I am also getting my dressed preserved and cleaned by them and will review that as well later.
I went to over a dozen different bridal salons while looking for my wedding gown. A combination of being picky and self-conscious made it very difficult for me to find a gown. Eventually, I did find my gown, but the salon I found it at was horrible. The consultants acted like the alterations I wanted to make were stupid and made no sense. Instead of purchasing the gown there, I went back to La Reine, because I had enjoyed working with Deema very much. She worked with me to order the gown I found at the other salon and was even able to match the best price I had found. Deema also worked with me to order an extra lace package for my gown because I wanted to construct sleeves for the gown. Throughout the process she assured me that the alterations I wanted could be done and would look beautiful. The salon helped me to order a few other embellishments including buttons. When Deema wasn’t available the other staff members were extremely knowledgeable and helpful as well. La Reine has an amazing selection of gowns and I would recommend that all Massachusetts brides visit their salon when searching for their dream gown.
AWFUL Experience! Would never recommend. I had an appointment at La Reine and was fresh off of a great experience at another salon. It took at least 15 minutes for someone to even acknowledge my party, and I found the consultants to be rude and condescending. My friends and family and I were chatting and laughing and generally in a great mood, and these women acted like we were a nuisance. All other bridal salons I'd been to allowed me to put dresses on myself, and they told me to let them know if I needed help. The women at La Reine made a big deal about me being "shy," and wouldn't drop it. My "shyness" was called to attention multiple times, and it honestly felt as though they were mocking me. They did not leave me alone behind the curtain and insisted that it would be faster if they dressed me. The whole experience felt like an assembly line, as it was, "step out of this, step into this, step out of this," etc. I already had a consultant in the room with me, and as I was stepping into a gown, another consultant barged through the curtain with no warning. Someone in my party commented that I was in the middle of changing, and this woman snidely replied, "it's fine; we're friends now." I was having trouble loving any of the dresses they put me in because I was comparing them to another dress I had tried at the last salon. I explained this to them and described the dress I loved. Instead of being understanding, they seemed to be irritated and acted as though I was wasting their time. Soon after I told them I had another dress I liked, they pulled just one more gown and said, "last one." I couldn't even appreciate the beauty of any of the gowns because I was so distracted by the appalling treatment. If one consultant was blatantly rude, the other was fake and disinterested. Not once did anyone working there compliment how a dress looked on me or give me an honest opinion. I would absolutely never recommend La Reine Bridal to anyone looking for a pleasant shopping experience.
Absolutely amazing!! I felt like a princess the entire time I was there. Deema was my consultant and she made me feel very special. She followed everything that I wanted and found my perfect dress in my budget. I will always talk about La Reine because it was an experience that was memorable and everything that I dreamed of. Thank you Deema for making my day perfect!
La Reine Bridal and my consultant Deema were absolutely fantastic! La Reine Bridal was my first experience trying on wedding dresses, and I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. I came in with a wide array of ideas of what I wanted, and Deema was able to quickly help me narrow down what I actually wanted by putting me in different styles & shapes of dresses - all of which were beautiful. She really listened to all of my comments (and my sisters comments!) of what I did and did not like about each dress, and would then pull more dresses according to our comments. It did not take long to find a dress that I fell in love with! Since this was my first appointment of the day, I felt I needed to try on a few more dresses, and they were completely understanding and let me know that if I did want to come back later, that was fine. Ultimately, I ended up returning to La Reine later in the day to purchase the dress I had originally loved, and again me and my family were treated wonderfully by the staff there, who even graciously allowed my sisters to try on a few bridesmaid dresses though it was very close to closing time. I can't thank La Reine Bridal enough for providing such a positive environment and experience, as well as for helping me to find the perfect dress!
After visiting several other dress shops, I went to La Reine and had a great experience every time I returned. The attendants were very patient and helped me narrow down my choices until I finally found the perfect dress that was within my budget. I also purchased my bridesmaids dresses through La Reine and everything came in on time and worked out really well. Make sure you have an appointment before you go!
