Nightmare!! We purchased a wedding gown back in September of 2021 and still do not have a gown! Lucilles has always been reputable but since the change in ownership it has gone down hill. Gown came in 4 sizes to big but according to Antoinetta...
the owner, it was ordered correctly. My daughter tried it on and asked if she would please order another in a smaller size. She replied " her seamstress works miracles and this happens often." Ok being she is the expert in this field and we are not. We trusted her words. The first fitting didn't go so well. Gown was still to big in the bust area and shoulder straps area. Bustle was not acceptable. Waited 3 weeks and hopeful the 2nd try for the seamstress would be successful. Well, the gown was still to large, shoulder straps were 2 different lengths, and the hemline was noticeably uneven. We asked for a European bustle which came out looking worse than the American bustle. By now my daughter and myself are stressed, aggrevated, angry and worried. The owner continued to feel confident and comfortable that her seamstress will work miracles on my daughter's gown. Attempt #3 for the wedding gown alterations. Arrived at Lucilles to see a dirty, spotted, wrinkled uneven all around the hem, unacceptable gown that now looked as though it belongs in the trash.The shoulder straps were so noticeably uneven. What looked like several small holes where she attempted twice to sew the bustle were hideous and so noticeable I wanted to cry. It is June and my daughters gown is ruined. We asked for a refund but that's not her policy. Antoinetta offered my daughter to pick out a new gown (which wasn't an option due to same inventory as last September). My daughter chose to reorder her original same gown. We ordered it 4 sizes smaller and waiting for it to come in. It is now July. We were promised it will be in August 3rd. I am truly upset for the unprofessional manner of this business and thankful we were adamant about a new gown because I truly believe she would have let us walk out of there with this damaged, ruined gown because in her eyes nothing goes wrong. She actually told my daughter this was my daughter s fault! Oh I'm still fuming.

Staff was kind but the shop is incredibly small with a very limited selection. If you already know exactly what you want it would be a nice place to purchase, but if you’re trying to find your bridal style it’s not the right place.

I had an excellent purchasing experience with them however it all went down hill from there. They gave me an estimate for alterations when I bought the dress. They ended up being $200 more than estimated for only a bustle, hem, and taking in th...
e bust. They did end up refunding me a $100 for the "misunderstanding," so I will say the owner does care about her business. However, their new seamstress was awful. She took in my dress too much, cut off appliques on the seam and didn't not properly fit the bust/ cups. When I went to pick up the dress I started having a slight panic attack about how they wear going to fix my dress properly a month before my wedding. Mind you I wasn't yelling or speaking rudely to anyone, just nervously upset. The seamstress started jerking me around rather than instruct me, obviously pissed she had to redo her shotty work. The dress ended up being fine at the wedding except for my bustle. They charged me $230 for a one point bustle that ended up being a small loop that they attached to one of the decretive buttons on my dress. This set up lasted less than an hour at my wedding and before I could enter the reception I had to have my cousins pin it with a bunch of safety pins in order for it to stay. This meant I was unable to let my train down for photos later in the night. This was an incredibly stressful process and I was highly disappointed with the alteration care. The fact that they claimed not to be aware of what alterations I would need when they quoted me a price even though I was wearing clips around the top half of the dress and discussing the bustle and hem does make me wonder how much they truly know when it comes to the alterations. They have a beautiful dress selection. Buy a dress from there if you like but consider getting alterations elsewhere.

Thank you to Lucille’s for helping me look beautiful on my wedding day! I found a gown in a magazine that I loved and went to Lucille’s almost 2 years before my wedding to try it on. I didn’t love it but ended up trying on another dress th...
ey had on clearance off the rack and my grandma, mom and I all loved it. With my wedding a little under two years away, I was nervous to buy it so far in advance. Lucille’s made sure to tell me that this was perfectly ok and even though the dress was a sample size and I definitely am not, they said it can be altered to fit and even held it in store for me the whole time!
When it finally came time to start my fittings, I was nervous! I’m a street size 14 and the dress was a bridal size 8 or 10. We decided to cut the zippered back off the dress and make it a corset instead. And it came out BEAUTIFUL! The dress was stunning and they did an incredible job.
At my last fitting I thought the dress was creasing a little bit so they recommended making straps and adding them to the dress. They made the straps from the extra string from the corset and it looked like they were made for the dress.
I had a 3 part bustle and they were so helpful and patient showing my mom how to do it when we picked up the dress. It was beautifully pressed and all ready for me and made sure it made it to the wedding date safely.
Lucille’s was wonderful and I’m so happy that my future sister in law just purchased her dress there too. If you want a personal experience where everyone is so kind and lovely, and want to stay in budget, go to Lucille’s!

other store which was important to me. I couldn't decide and was able to come back for another appointment just to try on the two dresses a few weeks later to hopefully decide. My wedding was in June 2018 and I was trying on dresses in 2017 so it's been a while, but I don't remember having trouble with appointments, and coordinating my friends and family who wanted to come too. When it came in, I went in to try it on, and then closer to my wedding date I had 2 fittings. My one issue though, was that the seamstress was only available one 2 weekdays to do alterations, which was difficult because of work. Fortunately my boss was very understanding. And I was upset during one of the fitting appointments, because the dress wasn't ready for me and I had to come back hours later, messing up the other appointments I had that day. I also was never notified when my veil came in. I waited a while before I finally contacted them myself. I felt the quality of the services went down slightly after I'd actually found and purchased my dress. However, the final result was incredible. The best fitting, most beautiful thing I've ever had on my body.

I came to Lucille’s multiple times looking for my wedding dress. I am a curvy bride and they had plenty of plus size dresses to try on. I found my wedding dress at a different location but decided to order it from Lucille’s instead, it was just...
a different style than the other dresses by the same designer that Lucille’s carried. It arrived quicker than expected and I eagerly went for my first fitting. The dress needed to be taken in a lot and we had ordered additional applique pieces to be put onto the dress. The seamstress did a wonderful job with the dress, both with the sizing and with the appliques. I had a very big dress and a very long train, and it required a lot of hooks for the bustle. The seamstress did such a good job hiding all the hook/eye closures that we had a hard time finding them the day of the wedding! I went for my final fitting and I had lost of lot of weight that the dress needed to be taken in again unfortunately (or fortunately!) The seamstress essentially reworked the entire dress on both sides from top to just about where the knees were in just a day and it looked even better than when I first tried on the dress. The pricing for alterations was very reasonable given the amount of work that needed to be done and in such a short amount of time. Thank you to all the wonderful ladies at Lucille’s for making my dress look perfect! -Julia

She just brought out 3 dresses (some of which had more than 1 "no" feature - lace, buttons, strapless) and opened the door to the dressing room (which is 5 feet from the giant windows to the parking lot, btw) without a word. I tried on 1 other dress from a second trip into their vault that had another "no" feature, and was told that's all there was. They only have 3 dresses that are not strapless? That seems odd, even considering how popular strapless is. I kinda felt like they were just getting rid of me for their next appointment.

She tried on one with a bubble hem and we both really liked it, but then the shop owner came over and said "Are any of the girls in the bridal party chubby or heavy?" I was so disgusted by him actually asking this and said "Why...?!" And he said because the dress would make them look even worse and point out their flaws. I could NOT believe he was actually saying something like that. I was beyond disgusted at this point, but here's the icing on the cake... I had checked the price online of the dress (the original dress we went in to look at) and it said under $175, so I asked him how much the dress would be and the tag said $199. I said, "Isn't this high?" and he said "I could make it higher if you want, because I know another shop that sells it for $249!" He then stated that alterations could run anywhere from $40 to over $100. He then went into a story of a girl who's dad is a doctor and came in and bought that same dress for her whole bridal party and just swiped his credit card to pay for 8 dresses. I said, "I'm sorry that my daddy isn't a doctor and I can't afford to buy all my girls their dresses and I don't want them to have to pay that much to be in my wedding. At this point I was done. We left and went over to Classic Brides by Eva in Stratford where we had a MUCH better experience with friendly service, much better prices, and FREE alterations! STAY AWAY FROM LUCILLES! P.S. The skeevy owner also tried to offer me a 10% discount.. how funny he uses that line on everyone!

They were able to alter my dress with only 4 weeks until the wedding which was great but the alterations were expensive. We did rent the tuxes and got the brides maid dresses there, everything worked out but if you have to deal win he owner goo...
d luck. He is not very nice, he pretends to be your best friend and then he is nasty. Would not go back.

Superior staff and quality..I tried on 5 dresses and found "the one" in no time! Everyone was so helpful, I miss them! It's a small shop that has just what you're looking for. We also got our groomsman tuxes there :)

I wanted a certian Maggie Sottero wedding dress and it had been on her website for quite sometime fearing it would be discontinued I went to this bridal shop to get some information on it. Not only did they lie to me and tell me it was being d...

They were pushy and told me that was the only place around who could help me. Do your research before going here. I wish I could give them no stars.

I purchased my bridesmaid dresses here. I would not go back. The dresses were ordered in the wrong length, forcing my bridesmaid to get them altered. Also, many time myself and the bridesmaids were treated with rude attitudes from the staff.

I had a rough time finding a dress (5 months)people weren't listening to me and it was frustrating. When I went to Lucille's I felt like part of the family. They listened to me, and had a good experience with them and LOVED my dress. The onl...
y thing I would say is they tend to order dresses much bigger than needed, and therefore require a great deal of alterations particularly many of my girls needed 2-3 inches taken in on each side, so just heed caution with bridesmaid and mother of bride/groom dresses. Bridal dresses are typically ordered correctly in a closer size.

I loved that when I walked in to find my dress I had already been to 5 different places and had no luck with what I was looking for. I walked into Lucille's and told them what I wanted and they gave me 3 dresses. The second dress was the dress...
for me! The price was perfect too! I ended up buying my veils and tiara from them as well. When it came time to pick out the bridesmaids gowns they were so helpful then too!;It took a year for my dress to come in due to an employee not ordering it because she thought it was too soon based on the time for my wedding. I got my dress 8 weeks before my wedding which made me a little uneasy. This employee is no longer there and I didn't have any trouble from that point on.
