I found my perfect wedding dress and veil at Meant to Be Boutique and had a great shopping experience. They sell off-the-rack dresses at discounted prices, which means you get to walk away with your dress as soon as you buy it. It does mean t...
hat you can't order the dress in your size, but most wedding dresses require alterations anyway, so I was able to get my dress altered to fit me after I bought it. It was important to me to stay within my budget on my wedding dress and I did not have to sacrifice quality for price at Meant to Be. I would definitely recommend starting here when shopping for wedding dresses in Lexington.

When I walked in, I was greeted by Ashton, who informed me that she would be helping me with my appointment. She was so kind and helpful, and seemed very excited to be a part of my experience (even though I know she does this ALL the time). We ...
were all offered water or mimosas at the start of the appointment, which was a great touch. Also, since it was appointment only, I was the only bride in the shop, which took a TON of stress out of the appointment. I tried on probably 8 dresses, and found some great options. I ended up putting a dress on hold and going to another appointment. I couldn't get that dress off my mind so I went back and bought it! I had the best experience and would highly recommend this place to everyone!

they thought was a day of dress shopping. The ladies at the shop helped pull off a wonderful surprise and acted like I had never been there before. When I told my guests I was going to try on one of my favorites first and would try there suggestions next the didn't question it and the water works began when I came out. The experience was absolutely wonderful, and the dress I was able to purchase was such a bargain. 10/10 would recommend MTB!

hare it with my closest loved ones I brought with me.
I hate to say “customer service” was incredible, because I felt like I was family when I arrived. But it was indeed incredble. Above and beyond, truly. I, along with my family felt so welcomed and taken care of.
My dress... of course the most beautiful thing ever! I still get compliments of how my wedding dress was the most beautiful dress they’ve ever seen. It was perfect! So thankful for the MTB ladies for helping me find the perfect dress for my perfect day! I felt so loved and beautiful.

I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience at Meant to Be Boutique! After sporadically deciding to ditch our plans of having a long engagement and moving up our wedding, I only had 2.5 months to find the dress of my dreams. ...
Naturally I was terrified that finding a dress in that short amount of time was even possible, but then Meant to Be came into my life . I arrived at their gorgeous boutique with a couple of pictures in tow and a knot in my stomach not knowing what I was getting into. I am a perfectionist and a worrier by nature so this process I thought was destined to be a disaster. Luckily, it was completely the opposite. From the moment I walked in, I felt at ease. Not only is their store breathtaking and filled with some of the most beautiful gowns I'd ever seen, it's also home to some of the best gals in the business. Ashton was somehow able to magically understand exactly what I was looking for and although I tried on 5 or so dresses, it was actually the very first dress that I tried on that became "the one." I was so taken aback that me, the girl who never cries or gets emotional in public, was brought to tears by the entire experience. I was dumbfounded how knowledgable Ashton and Ty were about all things wedding dresses and marveled as they on the spot called the alternations lady to 100% ensure that we could get the dress altered exactly how it needed to be. They were lovely and gracious and I left feeling like I made new friends! Also, to add even more excitement to the day, the dress was completely affordable which was something very important to me (and my budget). Overall, you cannot go wrong by shopping at this wonderful boutique. You will leave feeling joyous!

about each dress, and made suggestions that didn't make me feel pressured one way or another - to the point that they made sure I knew it was okay if I walked out of the store without a dress! But that made me want to buy from them all the more. The owners of the shop are just the best and take pride in their little Lexington store - and as a local Kentuckian - I loved being able to support them! No question, MTB needs to be on your list.

you can see what they have before you come in! I gave 4 stars because I felt like the consultants were just guessing about my size. I was trying on 6's at other shops then told I should look at 12's here that were way too big (which would mean extra alterations costs). Overall, though, this was a great experience and I would recommend!
