A Reflection of Uniquely You!
MAGGI BRIDAL has served brides for over a decade, but in 2011 we underwent a transformation that has created an intimate and unique environment for brides. The joy of working in bridal is to make the bride look and feel as beautiful as she truly is so let us help create a reflection of uniquely you.
I had an amazing time at Maggi Bridal! After having been to two other stores earlier in the day, Maggi was my last stop for my first day of ever trying on wedding dresses. As soon as I walked in, I knew this place would be different. The atmosphere was so much more calm and relaxing, without people running around everywhere. My consultant, Kaitlin, sat down with me and my group to discuss what I was looking for, and she directed me to some dresses and styles that she thought I would like. There were so many to choose from, their selection is fantastic! She let my group and I pull a few dresses on our own, and we pulled one that she had suggested. Well, the first one I tried on was the one Kaitlin suggested, and as soon as I saw myself in it and my group's reaction, I knew it was the one! I cried, my mom cried, we all cried. Kaitlin let me walk around in it and check it out in different lighting, and was very helpful with discussing any alterations - I wanted an open back, and even though the dress had a sheer lace layer across the back, she said it could be ordered with the open back and showed us pictures of what it would look like. Kaitlin had an answer to every question, and was extremely thorough. She was never pushy and never pressured me into the dress. I even tried on the other five my group and I had picked out just to be sure. We ended up ordering the first dress I tried on. their contracts are very clear and straightforward. Maggi Bridal and Kaitlin have remained in contact with me, checking in and letting me know the arrival date of my dress. I even got a cute little bridal goodie bag to take home with me! Overall I had an amazing experience, and I wouldn't change a thing! I would tell anyone and everyone to go there, I loved everything about my time at Maggi. I look back on that day and can't help but smile!
An Experience You Will Always Remember!!!Reviewed on 8/26/2013 Allison P
Maggi Bridal definitely had my support from the first time I spoke with Amy! She was amazing from the very first e-mail that I received! She was truly interested in my vision of what I wanted to look like and my wedding as a whole. Amy worked with me to get a dress I was interested in to the shop (they didn't have the particular dress I wanted but they did carry the designer, Justin Alexander, which I am so fond of!), but unfortunately the designer had discontinued the dress. Amy continued to ask me more questions to see if there was possibly another dress that I could be interested in and of course there was and impressed me when she remembered it on the day of the appointment. When it came time for my appointment, I was captivated with how sweet and quaint the shop was and how inviting and approachable Amy and Laura were! Amy sat down with me to get to know me and my wedding a little more. She was very easy to talk to and she really did seem to get my vision without making me feel silly. I am generally a very shy person and I felt like Amy and I had known each other for the longest time just from our e-mails! I feel like we picked up right where we left off without her forgetting a single detail. Just an overall sweet girl! As the appointment really got started and dresses were being pulled, she noticed I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and nervous by all the gowns and the overall experience. She didn't make me feel rushed or pressured, but her opinions and guidance really got me on the right track to what I truly wanted in a gown. While trying on each dress, Amy had very helpful insight and suggestions and definitely knew her bridal gowns! She didn't seem to mind me trying on what seemed like 15 gowns and was more than happy to help me into the gowns more than once! She showered me with compliments and made me feel beautiful and confident in each gown I tried. After trying on gown number two (a gorgeous Justin Alexander gown) that I hadn't even considered before, I just knew it was the one! My family and I had our moment and I knew from that point, it was the dress I wanted to wear on my big day. Although I did not purchase the gown that day, it was in no way a reflection of my experience or the gown. I will DEFINITELY be purchasing that gown from Maggi Bridal within the next week without hesitation. This was my one and only experience trying on wedding dresses and I don't think I could have found a better place to have had that special moment. Amy and Laura could not have been more accommodating and left me and my guest talking about it for days. I would STRONGLY recommend Maggi Bridal! As a matter of fact, one of my guests that accompanied me to my appointment is getting married as well, already has her dress, and is contemplating on selling it and going to Maggi Bridal to see Amy and Laura; they made that strong of an impression!!! :)

The thing that instantly hit me in this boutique is their attention to detail. As someone who works in customer service myself, I value the details that make an experience special for an individual (especially when you provide that experience to SO many individuals)! I worked mainly with Amy, who was incredibly helpful! The positive first impression began with Amy being so quick to get back to me via e-mail. Amy helped get my dream dress to the shop (they didn't carry my particular dress but did carry the designer) with no problem! When I entered the store she had my dream dress staring me in the face - what a first impression! Amy and Laura's hospitality and genuine spirits took things from there. In a comfortable environment where I NEVER felt rushed or pressured, I was able to find my dream dress. I appreciate the intimacy of the boutique and being able to consider the most important dress of my life in such a comfortable environment. Amy truly listened to what I was saying and "got" my vision. I really appreciate how well she listened to what I was saying regarding what I did and didn't like. I purchased my dress on my first visit to Maggi Bridal and couldn't be more proud to be a Maggi Bridal bride. Maggi Bridal was able to deliver - a small and feminine store that packs a big punch when it comes to experience and selection!
My experience with Maggi Bridal was phenomenal. From the moment I walked in I felt I had their full attention. My consultant was very focused on my style and was conscientious of my budget. Together we found my dream dress and I couldn't be more excited! I had another appointment scheduled for later the same day, but after my experience at Maggi Bridal, my party and I knew we didn't need to look any further. Thank you for making my vision a reality!
What could've easily been super stressful and a confidence killer ended up being a wonderful experience. I've got a larger bust, so I wasn't quite sure how bridal would fit. Laura was my consultant and she did a fantastic job making me feel beautiful. She listened to exactly what I wanted, but also took into consideration what the people I brought wanted to see. I ended up saying "yes" to the dress that day. Maggi Bridal also altered my dress! Boy did they have work cut out for them. We ordered my dress two sizes bigger for the bust, but then I ended up losing a bit of weight, so they had some major alterations to do. The dress came out absolutely perfect and looked like it was made just for me. They held on to the dress until the day before the wedding which was a huge help and my husband and I already lived together and I didn't want him to see the dress. Everyone that I worked with a Maggi Bridal was awesome! Highly recommend!
Maggi Bridal was a lifesaver for my wedding. I ordered my dress from Maggi Bridal since they were one of the only vendors in the area that carried Alfred Angelo. They worked with me to make sure it would fit and would arrive on time even though it was not a style they currently had in-house. When the worst happened, and AA went bankrupt and my dress was not going to arrive, they went above and beyond to help me find an alternate that they then cut and reformed to be similar to the original dress I had ordered. The end result was beautiful and fit perfectly, I got so many compliments on it and it truly is one of a kind! Thank you to Victoria, Sharon, and the rest of the staff for all your help!
I had originally been very excited to go look for dresses here. I called and made an appointment where they asked all the typical questions about the wedding date, venue, styles I liked, etc. my hopes were high as they seemed to be highly detail oriented. I was so let down. The consultant who answered the door was visibly annoyed that we were 3 minutes early and that “we would have to wait as they finished another appointment” - which was fine. The appointment ran approximately 20 minutes over during which time no one spoke to us or acknowledged us. When our consultant finally came to us in the waiting area she was rude, cold and condescending. She reminded us that our appointment window was strict but she “would give us some extra time since we didn’t start on time”. Now, when I called to make my appointment they asked me about the sizes I wore in regular clothes as to estimate my size in bridal - which I gave them - and nothing else was said about it. The consultant pulled dresses and said that she thought that I might be able to “get into” these even though they were nothing like what we had discussed over the phone. I’m a large chested girl. I get it. Things that I try on are going to be a challenge in the bridal world but there was literally nothing in the whole store that was even “try-able”. That’s fine, I get it. But this could have been avoided over the phone. Plain and simple. Don’t have me drive an hour to the place and then treat me like crap because you know there’s “nothing for me” there. I could not get out of there fast enough as she made some half hearted excuses about being a small store and whatnot. I have never been treated so poorly in my life. I wish I could more accurately describe her disposition and attitude towards us but I wouldn’t suggest anyone who is not a straight size ever going here. I was mortified and got the clear message that I wasn’t welcome or wanted there.
I had a great experience with Maggi Bridal in Raleigh! I worked with Victoria, who was extremely patient and knowledgeable, especially when I couldn't make up my mind! She really knows her stuff! The store even had 3 gowns from their Asheville location brought over just for me to try on at my second visit. These ladies really know how to make a gal feel special! :) The attention and atmosphere at Maggi bridal was wonderful compared to the other stores I visited when looking for my dress, not to mention the selection at Maggi Bridal was a much better fit for me. They have some very unique styles. I would recommend a visit here to anyone looking for their dream dress in the Raleigh area!
This was the fifth and the last bridal salon I went to! I had a very clear idea as to what I wanted to wear on my wedding day and when I met with the consultant and shared my vision with her, she picked up 3 dresses out for me and the last dress that I put on was the one that I wore for my wedding! They also asked what my budget was and never showed me a dress higher than my budget. I absolutely love this place and I love my dress!
I went to a few different bridal stores as was beginning to get discouraged until I went to Maggi Bridal! The overall atmosphere makes you feel like your a princess and great about yourself. I love that you can pick out the dresses you want to try on yourself and then a consultant will help you try it on. They did an excellent job with accommodating the many questions and making sure I was able to get the dress of my dreams!
I had a great experience at Maggi Bridal. Not only did I find "the dress" but the atmosphere was super pleasant and Kaitlin was very helpful. She made me feel very calm and relaxed and made the overall experience very enjoyable. It's a beautiful boutique and the customer service is top notch!!
the women at maggi bridal made me feel so comfortable! I had no idea what I was looking for in a dress and they helped me find the most perfect one! They also created a beautiful birdcage veil with lace from my mom's dress for me! I couldn't be happier with them!
Phenomenal service, great selection, and most of all extremely professional staff!
I had a perfect experience at Maggi Bridal. My consultant was Victoria, who sat down with me at the beginning of the appointment to learn more about me, my wedding, and to view photos I had of dresses I thought I liked. She then let me and my party look around choosing the first few dresses I wanted to try on. From there, she also made a few very good recommendations of her own, as she got a better sense of my style. I have been wedding dress shopping with friends at other stores and the experience didn't even come close to what I had at Maggi Bridal. It felt like a very private experience as well, since we had our own sitting area in the store where I could try on the dresses on a small pedestal. It could not have been a more amazing experience at an affordable price-- THANK YOU Victoria and Maggi Bridal for helping me find my dream dress, and for being making it to perfect dress shopping experience!
WOW. My experience at Maggi Bridal was so amazing :) Victoria was extremely helpful right from the start. I loved how simple and classic the boutique was. Victoria really listened as I told her my vision for the wedding. She went through all of the designers and their dresses. She was so knowledgeable about each designer and really helped me stick to my budget. I was able to pull a few dresses that caught my eye and Victoria also chose some that she thought matched my vision/personality. I was originally torn between a few of the dresses. Victoria was super patient and helped me talk through my likes/dislikes about each dress. She helped me narrow my options down. I went to my initial appointment alone, so I needed to go home and think about it, and Victoria was very understanding. I went back to the boutique with a few people and everyone loved the dress that Victoria helped me pick out! It was such an amazing feeling. I'm happy to say that I found my dream dress at Maggi's! Victoria has been responsive through emails and patient with all of my questions.
Great experience at Maggi Bridal - Kaitlin Giannakis was so helpful and easy to talk to, and she made the experience fun for my mom, grandmother, sister and me. I liked having the flexibility to look around for dresses at the beginning of the appointment, but then she provided some additional options she thought I might like. I didn't feel pressured or overwhelmed, which made the whole experience much more enjoyable than at some other boutiques, and Kaitlin was really good about keeping my budget in mind. Although I ended up finding "the dress" at another shop, I found two dresses I loved here and I have nothing but good things to say about Maggi Bridal.
I had a wonderful experience at Maggi Bridal. Everyone was awesome! My consultant, Amy was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what I wanted. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The store is very personable and not like a warehouse. I will be recommending Maggi's to all my friends and family!
I had a wonderful experience at Maggi Bridal. I actually showed up with no appointment thinking there's no way I'll get seen. Yet Laura graciously fit me into her already busy schedule. She was so polite and courteous. Their selection was great and she helped me find an absolutely gorgeous dress within my budget. I would definitely recommend Maggi Bridal to anyone looking for a dress for their special day!!
I had such a great experience with Kaitlin at Maggi Bridal! She was super helpful in helping me narrow down what I was looking for and answered all of my questions. The dress I found is beautiful and is everything I was looking for but truly the experience was everything and really went into making my decision to purchase there. I am so happy I did!
I had a wonderful experience at Maggi Bridal, I have been to quite a few bridal stores and thought I would never find 'THE' dress. My consultant Bethany was phenomenal, she was very personable patient and respectful to us, she let us grab any dress we wanted to try on and listened to what I liked and didn't. The very last dress I tried on I liked the most and said it kicked the other 2 favorites butt, and she still had me try on my other favorites just to be sure and I am so thankful she did that because the second time I slipped into that gown I started to cry and felt like the most beautiful girl in that moment. I don't remember the owers name that was there, she had short blonde hair and decorating for Christmas, she was just so sweet to us and let us take a mirror and expo marker to make a "Yes to the Dress" sign :) I am so excited to have said YES with an amazing bridal boutique! I can't wait to come back!
I had such a fabulous experience at Maggi Bridal! This was my first stop for dress shopping; I took one of my bridesmaids and had the pleasure of working with their consultant, Kaitlin, in trying on different silhouettes and fabrics. I was upfront that I wouldn't be buying a dress that day (I had to go to St. Louis to shop with my mom, and my future MIL was coming into town a few weeks later & wanted to shop, too), but it did not matter at all! Kaitlin was so attentive and really in tune with what I liked and what I was looking for. I feel like I got the same treatment that I would have if I had walked in and said "I will not leave today without my dress!" I really appreciated how before we even dove into looking for dresses that Kaitlin sat down with me and discussed what my big day would be like, what I was envisioning, and what crazy things did I want to try! I had so much fun (and had my eye on a gorgeous gown) that I made a follow up appointment for when future MIL would be in town. Let's just say that the salons I went to between appointments left me antsy for my return to Maggi. I was SO HAPPY to be back and shed the awkwardness from other places. Kaitlin was just as awesome the second time around, and I bought my dress! I'm really looking forward to my wedding next year, and so grateful to Kaitlin & Maggi Bridal for being a part of the journey!
My experience at Maggi was wonderful! Given the size of the store, the gown selection is quite impressive. I ended up with a one-of-a-kind designer original that I purchased off the rack. It was a little over my rather modest budget, so they gave me my veil for free! They also gave my bridesmaids discounts on their dresses. My gown and veil were $1500, and my bridesmaids paid around $170 each for their dresses. All of their consultants are extremely nice and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!
Maggi Bridal is the place every bride and bridal party should go to get their dresses! Amy worked with my older sister to find her perfect dress, and was my consultant when it came to planning for my big day! Amy is highly talented and has such a unique eye for finding the perfect dress to match each bride’s personality and wedding day style. She was so fun and professional to work with to find my perfect dress along with all of the accessories! I would absolutely recommend Maggi Bridal to anyone!
The selection was great! The staff was very friendly and really listened to what I was looking for. They were also respectful of my budget and very nice about that. We also looked at bridesmaid dresses and were happy with those as well. Definitely recommend this place!
Nicole was the best blessing to happen to me during my wedding planning process. I came to her after being devastated by the outcome of my first bridal gown and desperate to find another. She helped me try on dresses and criticize them in the worst way until she suggested a dress that I never would've considered myself. I tried that dress on and fell head over heals in love with it and even more so than the first one I had purchased. It was the best thing that could've happened. She was helpful throughout the whole process and even afterwards. I would recommend Maggi bridal to anyone in the Raleigh area looking to get married. Ask for Nicole when you're setting up your appointment! #proudtobeamaggibride
