I love this store! This was the third salon I had gone to gown shopping. Modern Bride was so convenient because I did not need an appointment to try on dresses. It worried me at first because I thought I would have to wait in line for my turn to try on dresses since I didn't... Read More make an appointment, but that was not the case at all. I was immediately greeted at the door by Tayla, who was wonderful! She was so knowledgeable about the gowns that were in the store, the styles, and which designer would give me more of the look I was going for with my limited budget. I never felt pressured or rushed. I was able to stand and look the dress over in the mirror without feeling like I was wasting someone's time. Tayla filled the time that I needed to think by looking for dresses that fit my style and my budget. I was so happy with my experience here that I did end up buying my dress with Tayla. We will also be going back to talk about tux rentals and bridesmaids gowns. We are shopping for bridesmaids on a weeknight and I love the convenience of not having to make an appointment. I never know if I will get out of work when I plan to, so I won't have to worry about being late for an appointment. I'm also kind of excited that I could put my dress on at the salon and see how it looks with the bridesmaids! Thank you Tayla and Modern Bride for making it so easy for me to plan my wedding!

Wonderful experience for my wedding dress the whole time! I had Tayla and she was absolutely perfect!!! She actually picked out my wedding dress based on what I had picked out and on the pictures that I showed. She struck that perfect balance of guiding and helping but was never... Read More too much, nowhere near pushy. Even with letting me have a little privacy while putting them on but standing right outside the curtain waiting to assist! Made it a very calm and fun experience. We had another girl helping and she was great too, all the staff were very knowledgable and so friendly to everyone. For a small shop they have a great selection.

My experience at Modern Bride was fantastic! I walked in and was immediately greeted by the store owner. He asked me about my wedding dress vision, then showed me the large dress selection. Right away I felt at ease. I was able to pick several dress to try on - yes, they let you... Read More peruse their collection of dresses. Everything was divided by designer and had helpful images of the dresses attached to the dress bags. My consultant Ashley was wonderful. I never felt rushed, though I tried on several dresses. Unlike other bridal salons, there were no time limits. Ashley listened to everything I loved and did not like about dresses. It was clear she listened based on the dresses she brought for me to try on. Ashley even found the dress I bought and love! It is everything I wanted, but couldn’t put into words. I was the most impressed when Ashley pulled similar dresses with the same back closure and designer to help me decide which size to order when my measurements placed me between sizes. She answered my questions honestly while remaining professional. I highly recommend Modern Bride and Ashley!

I have only good things to say about Modern Bride. This was the first and only place I went to to try on dresses. My mother and I went in without an appointment and were helped immediately. I only knew I wanted lace and sleeves and picked some dresses while the consultant picked... Read More some she thought I might like. After trying on maybe 6 dresses, I felt very overwhelmed and needed to take a breather but I was never once pressured into making a decision. I ended up falling in love with a dress that was picked for me that I would have never picked out myself. The whole staff is friendly and makes you feel very comfortable.

Have had the best experience thus far working with the team at Modern Bride. On my first visit with my mom and sister we were greeted and helped by Marin. She was amazing, patient, and extremely helpful offering great insight into each dress that I tried on and was knowledgeable... Read More about each question I had pertaining to the dress.

I purchased my wedding gown and veil at modern bride. I also found my bridesmaids dresses there. I was overwhelmed by the amazing treatment I received. The girls were always helpful but Tayla was amazing and always brightened my day. It took me a couple of trips there to find...

I'm so thrilled I went to Modern Bride and found the dress of my dreams! We were immediately greeted by Elizabeth when we stepped through the door and from that moment on she was right there to help me find the perfect dress! Elizabeth was absolutely wonderful and a pleasure to... Read More work with! She was incredibly patient and encouraged me to try on as many styles as I wanted so I could see what I liked best. It really says something when the person working with you is just as excited as you are, and Elizabeth was just that! Modern Bride has a huge selection of dress styles and designers, and all of them were stunning! We never felt rushed and had an amazing experience that I will never forget. Days after I said yes to the dress, I got a hand written card in the mail from Elizabeth wishing me the best of luck on the rest of planning and preparations for the big day. Modern Bride went above and beyond for me and I will be recommending them in a heartbeat to all my bride-to-be friends!

They don't even deserve the one star! This is the worst place I have ever shopped. I went for my wedding dress and they fit me wrong with a dress two sizes too big. Then the first seamstress didn't even know how to fix the dress then the one they call the "head seamstress"... Read More altered my dress and messed it all up. The top was still two sizes too big and they shorted my dress and blamed it on me! I went in for 4 fittings and they just continued to blame me for there mistakes. I was told I was a lair and that I had a roll in my stomach I don't have. And then the head seamstress laughed in my face and was extremely rude. She didn't once try to fix her mistakes and the manger even was rude to my mother. And the best part was we were told to never come back after they wouldn't give me my money back and it's only 10 days till my wedding. I will be telling everyone to never shop at this horrible store. They are the nastiest people I have ever met. If you want a good dress and nice people go anywhere else! I went to Davids Bridal and they put me in a dress that fit right off the rack two sizes small then this terrible store!

I went here on my first day of dress shopping and they were excellent. They were all helpful and friendly right away but my consultant Courtney was the best.

This shop is truly amazing! It was the first shop I stopped at to look for my wedding dress. It only took 2 tries to find my perfect dress! Their clearance rack is amazing. Perfect dresses for a reasonable price! The workers were so easy to communicate with. They were so nice... Read More and helpful whenever I walked in the door. My husband got his suit along with our father's and groomsmen. Once again, everything went flawlessly. The manager is so genuine and kind. Whenever we came in he remembered who we were!

I came here after having major dress regret from another salon that I wont name, but it's a pretty popular, well known bridal salon on the seacoast. That salon laid on the pressure and sales tactics and I completely caved. After trying to love the dress and stressing out over it... Read More for months -- I ultimately decided to sell that dress. That left me with 6 months to my wedding to find a new gown! I had Tayla as a consultant at Modern Bride and it was a great experience. The appointment was amazing, she was amazing, and everyone we worked with was amazing. I didn't have to make an appointment for a Saturday -- and unlike other salons that only give you one hour, I was able to hang around for 3 hours before deciding on the dress. I definitely needed that time to give me the peace of mind that I was making the right decision. Tayla actually ended up being the one who pulled the dress I bought, and there was absolutely ZERO pressure from the consultant or any of the people in the shop. I left feeling relieved and excited, unlike my other appointment, where I had almost immediate regret. They have a massive selection of dresses, and actually let you browse around to look at them, but they'll also pull dresses for you as you figure out what you like. I'm so grateful to Tayla and everyone who helped me find my dress and now I'm beyond excited for my wedding! And seriously -- thank you to everyone there for tolerating my 3 hour long "appointment". That extra time made all the difference in the world! All fittings and followups were awesome too, they didn't rush me and they listened to my concerns and nitpicking and I never felt like I was putting them out (even though I probably was :) )

This place is great for wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride dresses, but is terrible for tuxes! I got my wedding dress and the bridesmaids dresses here and my mom got her dress and everything went smoothly. All the staff were very helpful and friendly,... Read More alterations went smoothly and my dress was beautiful. However, they messed up and didn't order a tux for one of the groomsmen and left my husband scrambling on the day of the wedding. Since they didn't have much in stock the groomsmen was going to have to wear a bow tie while the rest of the wedding party had ties. My husband ended up going to a store and buying a matching tie for this groomsmen on the day of the wedding. I had such an excellent experience buying my dress here, and I definitely don't regret it, but I do regret ordering the tuxes from here.

My mom and I just got back from Modern Bride for my first ever experience with trying on a wedding dress. We were immediately greeted by Tayla. Who turned out to be beyond wonderful. She also had an consultant in training (whom I don't remember her name) but she also did a... Read More fabulous job and was willing to help. I thought I would be completely overwhelmed with choices and decisions but Tayla really kept me at ease. She was so comforting and down to earth. She had great suggestions and also really listened to my likes and dislikes. I couldn't have asked for a better first experience. We narrowed it down to a couple dresses but there was one that really stood out to me. Tayla gave me all the info that I would need and was never pushy to make the sale. The finishing moment she gave me a heartfelt hug which really meant so much to me. She even told me about the Maggie Sorreto trunk show that would be coming up soon and how I could save some money on accessories. I just want to thank Tayla and modern bride for making me feel so welcomed and comfortable I truly walked in today feeling nervous and that immediately went away.

I didn't end up buying my dress here BUT I had such a good experience that I had to write a review. I had my eye on a dress in another store, but it was the only store I had been to and I felt uncomfortable purchasing without looking at at least one other place, so on a whim... Read More without an appointment I went to Modern Bride. I was worried because it was a Saturday, but I was seen right away by a consultant who was wonderful. I explained my situation and despite her knowing that I was really interested in another dress elsewhere, she still gave me her undivided attention. She walked me through the racks, explained the set up and gave me and my small entourage a chance to look around and pull things I liked. Then she came back and showed me some of her own suggestions, which were spot on what I was looking for. The dressing room she took us to was HUGE. It fit several ballgowns as well as me, the consultant, and one of my bridesmaids. The consultant was super helpful and efficient, and I loved trying on gowns here. There are even pedestals for you to stand up on to model your dress. I actually found quite a few dresses I liked, although in the end they didn't beat the one I had seen previously. But there were a lot of different styles to choose from, and I was really impressed with the range of prices. My budget was not large but I still had a lot of options, and not just on the clearance rack! After we finished with myself, we also browsed the bridesmaid dress racks and found a lot of options. We haven't decided on one yet, but there is a good chance I will be getting my bridesmaid dresses here. I cannot say enough good things about the customer service I received here. Despite ultimately deciding on a dress from another store, this was exactly the shopping experience I was hoping for.
