Today my cousin went into Maria’s Bridal Couture to find a wedding dress. As soon as she walked in, the saleslady approached them and asked my other cousin who was with her, “Did you make this appointment? If you like our dresses so much why di...
dn’t you buy your wedding dress from here?”
Later, as my cousin was trying on dresses she mentioned to her cousin who was with her that she liked a certain style they had at Konja’s (another dress place). The saleslady then said to her, “You already know what dress you have in mind. Why are you trying this on?”
The saleslady proceeded to help her put the dress on but then walked away to talk to the other saleslady at the front. The dress was all bunched up in the back still.
I would not recommend going to Maria’s Bridal Couture unless they seriously reevaluate their customer service and are humbled by this review.

I absolutely love my dress I found and wore on my wedding day. I had plenty of fittings & got to see my dress when I needed it wanted to. The staff was amazing. Very helpful & accommodating. I always felt welcome & left there smiling.

Maria's has beautiful gown options and is where I purchased by wedding dress after many stops due to limited time constraints being an out-of-town shopper. However, much like the other reviews, the service did not live up to the same standard ...
and quality as the product. When we walked in initially, we did not feel at all welcome...as if we didn't look like we were high spending clients, so we weren't given the time of day. I was referred to the shop by a family member who purchased their wedding dress there. This person also had her alterations done at the shop and they feel out at the beginning of the reception before any dancing was done. After reading similar reviews of poorly done alterations, I decided to go elsewhere and pay someone else to do them even though alterations were "included" with the cost of the gown. Speaking of cost there are no price tags on the gowns. One day I went in and my gown was X amount and the next day I went to try it on again and was told a different amount. The sales person insisted I must have misheard. This bridal shop offers beautiful gowns with sneaky sales tactics and poor/discriminating service. I wish I could say otherwise because the rest of my wedding vendor experience was excellent.

I had the absolute worst experience at Maria's. I live in North Carolina but I am originally from West Bloomfield. I found the dress I wanted in NC, but purchased it from Maria's since they carry the designer. Also, alterations are included in ...
the price of the dress. When the dress arrived, I flew to Michigan. The dress arrive 3 weeks prior to my wedding. The dress was completely wrong. It was supposed to be drop waist, it didn't fit correctly, stones were falling out and the design was COMPLETELY WRONG. I had to make another trip back up after the dress was supposedly send to Italy for changes and sent back. So the dress was sent overseas, fixed and mailed back within 2 weeks. I highly doubt it. I truly believe Maria's simply attached the missing piece on the dress instead of making a new bodice. So a lot of stress, travel, money lost, tears etc. in the end I STILL Had to get alterations done at another shop because the dress had absolutely no structure. They had to add boning, take the dress in, redo the bustle. Nadica was completely clueless through the whole process. She kept asking myself and my mother what we wanted her to do, as if she doesn't own 2 dress shops?! How about you fix the issue? Then after it was all said and done, a week prior to my wedding. She sends me picture of other dresses that could be ordered. Dresses, I had never seen or tried on. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. If you want to have a pleasant bridal experience, go elsewhere. And I'm out of thousands of dollars due to travel, and alterations that should've been done at her shop. DO NOT GO TO THIS SHOP IF YOU WANT A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE!

I felt like a princess! I didn't think I'd ever have a 'this is my dress moment' but I did here! The staff is amazing and helpful. The alterations are done in store which is a bonus!

I have dreamed of trying on wedding dresses and I was so disappointed. This was the first salon I went to. They were late for my appointment and never even greeted us when we walked in. The two women there were rude and made us feel like we wer...
e wasting their time. They never clipped me into the dresses so I could actually see how they would look on me. These ladies didn't seem to care about me or how I felt. I left there in tears. I would not recommend Maria's, I went down the street to Bella Bridal and they were absolutely amazing!! I found the dress I love and the people working there were amazing! :) I would highly recommend brides go to Bella Bridal over Maria's. The difference in experience was night and day.

You MUST go to Maria's Bridal Couture! Nadica made my bridal dreams come true! She was professional, made me & my family/friends feel welcome & comfortable, the store is kept clean & is decorated beautifully & everyone was just an absolute joy ...
to work with! I had probably been to 5-7 other Bridal shops before I went to Maria's, in my mind I had a vision that I wanted a fully beaded bodice and tight trumpet skirt. I was not finding what I wanted anywhere else in my price range. I showed Nadica a few photos of dresses that I had tried on at other stores and she immediately pulled a fully beaded bodice with a trumpet skirt without me even telling her it was my dream dress. While in the dressing room, it was the first dress I tried on and before it was on she told me, "this is your dress", when I put it on I started to cry - none of the other dresses I had tried on made me cry. She was right, it was "the one", I was having my bridal moment! I don't even remember the price of the dress originally but she knew my budget & said she would make it work & she did!! I cant just make a huge purchase without doing a little research, so I called other stores in IL and OH to make sure I was getting a good deal, when I told both stores the price I was offered they all said "Buy it!". One of the stores was selling it for over $1200 higher and that was before alterations and taxes! I was stupid and went and got breast implants after I was already sized for my dress, when it came in my dress zipped by my bust, but was much too revealing for a classy bride. Nadica immediately came up with a solution and they actually sowed a belt onto the top part of my dress to cover me up more, it came out so beautifully that l liked it better! She turned a bridal mishap into a bridal blessing! Her staff was professional and helpful and you really got the sense that everyone is there to make you happy. Thank you for everything Nadica! We love you & wish you the best at your new Birmingham store!!

I absolutely loved my dress from Maria's. I was very hesitant to try on this particular style but just as I was about to give up, she politely nudged me to "just try it" and I fell in love. I live in DC but have family in Michigan. I was concer...
ned about having to make trips back and forth for multiple fittings but she assured me that we could make it work in just one fitting when I was coming back for a shower. They came in early on a Friday to fit me and had the alterations finished by Saturday morning so I could take it home with me that weekend. I was shocked. They even came in early on Monday morning to give me the dress before my flight. They really care about your happiness. She struck the very difficult balance of bride vs. family in a few instances and I really felt like I had her on my side without feeling uncomfortable. I wouldn't do it any other way!

I drove from Youngstown, Ohio to Detroit, Michigan (4 hour drive) to go to Maria's. They have such a beautiful selection of gowns, and carried Cymbeline Paris - the label of my bridal gown. I had such a nice experience, Shanade was helpful but ...
not overbearing, and they were willing to do whatever necessary to make my experience a comfortable one. I bought the dress of the rack, and I was pleased with the discount that they offered. They had a problem with their credit card machine while I was there, and unfortunately had to send me the dress after they had the machine up and running the following day. It was a bit frustrating, but they were kind about the situation, and they made it difficult to be upset. I loved my dress, and I had a nice experience at MBC.

I had an appointment to try on wedding dresses at this salon and I had a terrible experience. The person, who was supposed to assist me, did not listen to anything I had to say. I tried to give her a chance after she brought the first couple o...
f dresses, but she actually got annoyed when I told her I didn’t like them once I put them on. After about 20 minutes she left to go help somebody else and I was alone in the dressing room for over 10 minutes. She came back with a beautiful Vera Wang dress, but said she was busy and that I should have my mom help me put the dress on. That was the final straw so I got my things and left. I went to another salon the next day and the service was absolutely amazing. I believe great service is a must in every business, but it is even more important when selling wedding dresses. Maria’s needs to re-asses their staff and teach them what great service is.
