Paisley has been a wonderful vendor to work with. I originally found my dress in a different salon, and Paisley was able to order it for me since they carried the designer (Allure). The staff and owner always answered my emails, were very easy ...
to work with, and were very accommodating during this pandemic. They also have the best seamstress around, Yana. I did not know I could look that good in my wedding dress! Yana has truly mastered her skill, and knows exactly how to alter the dress to fit you perfectly. I could not be happier with shopping at Paisley!

I showed her what I was looking for and picked the most beautiful dresses. I loved them all. Due to the pandemic, there were restrictions on the amount of guests you can bring with you so I had my bridesmaids on a zoom call so they can be apart of it. Rayssa made sure they were able to see dresses in full so it felt like they were right there with me! Rayssa and Paisley gave me the best experience I could ever ask for. I couldn’t have said YES to the dress without her, my mom and my bridesmaids! Paisley really is the best place to go. You won’t regret it!

The seamstress can initially come across as curt, but she is actually very sweet. She is very skilled and she made multiple alterations until my dress was exactly how I imagined and it fit me perfectly. Katie was very helpful here as well since she also sews she was able to communicate my thoughts in a "seamstress" language. I wore a Maggie Sottero Sapphire wedding gown to my 9/27 wedding and I felt amazing.

I purchased my wedding dress from Paisely Bridal for my July 2019 wedding, and it was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I had scheduled appointments at various wedding shops in NY. Like most brides-to-be, I wanted to try on a wide...
selection of dresses to find the perfect one for me. I added Paisely Bridal to the list of shops because the owner used to work at Kleinfield for several years and this place was super close to my mother's home.
Paisely was my first bridal appointment of the day (10am). When we arrive, we were assigned to Alison, who was incredibly helpful. Alison never rushed me throughout the appointment. Based on elements that I liked, she would come to the fitting room with other dresses that had similar design elements and she stuck to dresses that were in my price range. The shop has a wide range of dresses (mermaid, ball gown, A-line, etc). After trying on 8 dresses, I found the one -- and it was in my price range. I immediately called all the other bridal shops, and cancelled my appointments scheduled for that day. I opted in for the $600 alteration service, which I think is worthwhile. The seamstress is incredibly kind, patient, and talented.I came in to see the seamstress three times, and my wedding dress fit like a glove.
Thank you so much, Paisely Bridal!

sley Bridal’s Instagram page. It was the matching veil and it looked absolutely amazing. I just knew I had to try it on and possibly purchase it for my dress. Paisley Bridal is appointment only, and compared to other salons, it is so calm and peaceful. I went up the beautiful winding stairs and was so glad I chose the place. It felt so intimate and special. I was greeted by my consultant Sonia at the front when I came in. She was beyond prepared for the appointment. She knew what I wanted and had already placed the veil for me in a fitting room that was open and waiting for me! I was able to try on a dress with the veil and look at myself from different angles and perspectives. Sonia took pictures and videos to my heart’s content so I could see what I really looked like. Just to make sure this was the one, I looked through their veil selection and picked other veils to try on as well. Sonia was so knowledgeable about everything bridal! As I was looking through and trying on veils, she spoke about the material, length, design and embellishment on the veils. I felt like I was learning just by listening to her talk. After trying on different veils and just being in them and spending time, I finally made my choice. It was no question, the veil for me was the one that brought me into the store in the first place.
As I spent time in the store and looked around while trying on veils, I loved their dress selection. I thought that maybe I would be able to find my second dress for the reception at Paisley. I asked about possibly stretching my appointment with Sonia so she could help me pick a second dress, and they were able to squeeze me in. I loved, loved, loved their dress selection. I was able to look around and choose dresses that I wanted to try on, and Sonia also chose dresses for me after she spoke to me about different styles. Sonia was knowledgeable yet again about the dresses and was so helpful when it came to making a decision. In the end, I had narrowed my selection down to two very similar yet different dresses. It was SUCH a hard decision to make and I took so long to decide! I never ever felt rushed by Sonia. She was as helpful as she could possibly be but also understood that I needed time to make my choice. She took pictures and videos and left to give me plenty of time to be in the fitting room alone with the dresses and choose. When I still couldn’t make my choice, she got the help of another employee. I left Paisley Bridal with the veil and the reception dress of my DREAMS! The best part was that the dress was on sale and I was able to buy the sample (which was in great quality) for a steal! I would recommend Paisley Bridal to any bride who wants a personalized and unforgettable experience.

e during my appointment, and I was so satisfied with how attentive and positive she was through the whole appointment. I came in with pretty much no guidelines to what kind of dress I wanted, I really had no idea other than no ballgown. I showed Allison a few pictures of dresses that I had saved, and she was able to get an idea of what style I was going for. I let her choose dresses for me, with my family also adding a few in as well. I completely fell in LOVE with the first dress I put on, which was one Allison chose for me, the minute I put it on. I knew that I needed to try on a few more to make sure, of course; however, my mind was fixated on that first dress, and I wound up saying YES to the first dress I tried on at the first store I went to. The dress was ordered, and when it arrived, I chose to just do all my alterations there as well. Yana was my seamstress, and I absolutely loved her. Her work was flawless, and she was so sweet every time that I came in, and also full of patience. Paisley had my dress ready for pick up a few days before my wedding, and even offered to steam my veil once I went to pick up the dress. All in all, I was 1000% satisfied with the whole experience I had at Paisley. I will continue to recommend everyone to Paisley, I already know of 2 or 3 that I made the recommendation to that went and said yes as well! Thank you to the whole Paisley Team!

I walked in I felt super comfortable. I had a large group with me (8 adults and 2 kids) and they quickly accommodated us with no issues. Emily was so patient with me, and listened to all my wishes and concerns. I loved that I had a chance to walk around and look at the gowns at my own pace, along with anyone that came with me. I have been to other bridal salons that do not allow you to touch any of their dresses, so this was definitely a plus for me. I had a pretty good idea of what kind of dress I wanted, but I don't think I would of been able to find my dress without Emily. She was fantastic! After trying on 5 other dresses, Emily came back into my fitting room with the dress and I knew that was the one. I had the perfect dress in my head, and Emily really helped bring that to life. The salon is a perfect size, and I never felt like anyone was on top of me. There were 2 other brides looking for dresses as well, and I never felt like it was too crowded. On top of everything the salon is GORGEOUS. Everything is rose gold and super cute, and the prices are affordable. My dress could easily be marked as a $3,000 dress, and I spent about half of that. I can go on and on about Paisley Bridal, but if you are looking for the perfect wedding dress I highly recommend this bridal salon.

I first visited Paisley Bridal two weeks ago in search of a dress for our 10th anniversary vow renewal ceremony that will take place in 2019. Emily spent quality time with me two weeks ago, and based on the budget and vision for my dress, she ...
pulled gorgeous dresses for me to try. I pulled dresses too, yet although we came close, I did not walk out of the boutique with a dress that day. Emily was super patient and excellent at selecting gowns that were my style. I had a photo on my phone of a particular dress that I really wanted to try based on what I had been fitting and liking. I knew Paisley Bridal carried the designer, which is one reason I chose to make an appointment with them. After showing Emily the photo from the designer’s website, she checked with a colleague and learned that they had recently sold the sample gown they had in store. Although the other dresses I tried were close in style and some were even by the same designer, I felt something special each time I looked at the photo of the particular dress that I inquired about. So, I left without my dress that day, and Emily said that she would check with the owner as to whether they were expecting the dress to be back in stock. I also sent an email to the general Paisley Bridal email address, and Nicole, the owner, responded to my email to let me know that they were expecting to have the gown in the store by December 7, 2018, and asking that I let her know if I wanted to schedule another appointment to try the dress on.
I was super happy to know that the dress would be in the store and super impressed by the follow-up by Paisley Bridal that I happily scheduled an appointment for today, December 9, 2018. I could have circled back to other salons that I had visited during this process, but honestly, while I’ve had some okay experiences at other bridal boutiques, none of those other boutiques offered me the warm and relaxed, yet fun and attentive experience that I had at Paisley Bridal. So, as excited as I was to see the dress, I chose to wait and keep my appointment at Paisley Bridal because that is the sort of bridal boutique any bride, including a “vow renewal bride” like me, wants to do business with.
So, today, I had another really great experience with Emily. When I arrived at the boutique today, Emily greeted me warmly, and I was so pleased to see that she had already pulled the gown that I had requested, as well as my top two selections from my previous visit just in case I wanted to try those on again. I was super excited to see the dress that I requested, and I opted to try that one on first. Wow! The dress is gorgeous! I wanted to linger in it, and linger I did. My mom took photos, and I smiled and smiled some more! I told Emily that I wouldn’t need to re-try the other dresses, and she was fine with that. Just like my first visit to Paisley Bridal, Emily then allowed my mom and I to continue to sit in the comfy couch/chairs and talk and think things over, with no pressure at all. Well, I have now ordered my dress from Paisley Bridal, and I am super happy about it! Thank you, Paisley Bridal, for such a wonderful experience.

I do not have enough wonderful things to say about paisley bridal!! From the moment I stopped in with my friends and family, I had a feeling this is where I would get my dress. It was our first stop on the wedding dress shopping adventure. They...
encouraged me to try on a variety of dresses and stop on the next day if I wanted to re-see a dress! Buying was easy and they do alterations on site!

They are the BEST you could ever ask for!!!

When I finally decided on "the one" Katie made sure to not make me feel pressured to finalize my decision just so she could make a sale. She wanted me to be completely sure I was happy with my dress and I appreciated that. After I said yes, they gave me a bottle of Prosecco and they have a cute sign you can take a photo with that says "I found the gown at Paisley."
I didn't do alterations with them because it was a little out of my price range but friends of mine have used their seamstress and had no complaints.
Thanks Katie and the Paisley team!

Where do I begin??? I was a nervous and unsure wreck when shopping for my wedding dress. After going to a few bridal shops, I decided to give Paisley a try and I am beyond thrilled that I did. From the moment I walked in the door they made me...

I looked forward to every visit, including all my fittings (Yana is amazing) and was actually sad when my final fitting was upon me and I would have no reason to go there anymore. Nicole, the owner, has created an incredible environment for brides to come and find their dream dress for their big day.

s. I probably visited Paisley 2-3 times before finding my dress, and Katie was extremely patient with my indecisiveness. She was also observant when she said that the dress I ended up with was the only one I had said the word "love" which helped me narrow it down! The quality of the dresses was just beautiful, and I could tell I couldn't have gone wrong either way.
Over the next few months, they were very willing to let me come stop by whenever I wanted to try on the dress with my accessories or when I bought my veil/belt from them. I highly recommend following them on Instagram so you could know when they have sample sales or discounts on accessories!
Alterations were done in 3 diff sessions, which I was surprised, I thought it would be 2. But the lady who helped me was extremely sweet and gave good advice about what adjustments should be made. My sister got very clear instructions on how to button and bustle the dress day-of, so we were set to go.
It was partly my fault for not realizing it but I guess I left it up to the professionals' opinions, but the day-of, the dress was wayyyy more difficult to walk or dance in unfortunately (We French bustled it in so it looked prettier/more subtle but in hindsight should have done the other bustle so it was more off the floor). People kept stepping on it and a huge circle had to surround me every time I was on the dance floor, it was almost easier to avoid dancing! I was also disappointed to pay the full price of the flat rate for alterations when there was probably a lot less done to my ballgown than a more fitted one (especially when it was still difficult to walk in so maybe length wasn't adjusted as much as I thought it was). However, I got so many compliments all night and truly felt like a bride, spinning in that flowy fun dress all night which is exactly what I was going for!

I quickly realized I wasn't in the right place for me. It was over priced, overwhelming and exhausting! Then there were visits to couple other places not worth the mention. Being bigger than a size 8 leads to bridal shops telling you to use your imagination---A LOT! Then one day I stumbled upon a Paisley Bridal review and decided to take a ride there alone. The shop was beautiful. I had a warm feeling just from walking through its doors. Then I met my consultants Brooke and Nicole (the owner) and they were amazing. There was no pressure here. Try on what you want and don't worry they have big sizes! Just a beautiful collection of gowns and incredible prices. I was at the store for about two hours. When I left I had no doubt Paisley Bridal would be where I would get my dress. One trip with my sister to the shop and I ordered my dress, bought my veil and agreed to have alterations done with them. The final product was more than I could have wished for.

ortunately, I had a better idea about what I didn’t want, rather than what I wanted.Nicole was super patient with me and after I tried on a few I chose, she picked out some really good options that allowed me to narrow it down to two dresses my husband and I really liked. I ended up coming back with my mother and mother-in-law a few more times before making my final decision and Nicole and Katie were always giving many options and suggestions, which were very helpful. I chose an asymmetrical trumpet gown from Stella York and customized it with a beautiful belt from Allure. Nicole was always easy to reach whenever I had any questions, always sent appointment reminders, etc. She felt like an immediate friend, who really just wanted to help, and not at all like a salesperson. Since I was between sizes, Nicole recommended I go with the corset back (which was something I originally did not want) but made me realize that it would be the most flexible and forgiving for any weight fluctuations. When it came time for my fittings, Yana was the best! She totally understood how I wanted the dress to look and made sure that I could breathe, sit and dance in my fitted corset back gown! It ended up being a great choice that I didn’t realize I would love as much as I did.

thought you wanted and brought a few dresses to you. One also had a limit on the number of dresses you could try on per appointment, and another refused to tell me the designer and style in fear I'd order it somewhere else. Many of the samples at other shops were pretty worn out.
Paisley was different- all of the samples were clean and new, they actually made me a list of dress styles I liked with the prices noted, and they had a wide range of options. I also really liked being able to look through the racks, and I felt much more comfortable and confident I'd find the right dress. Katie was extremely helpful in finding dress suggestions for me to try and talking me through each dress including what I liked or didn't like. She immediately put me at ease. Nicole is also super warm and knowledgeable. I appreciate that Paisley has a range of price points and were conscious of my budget as I searched. You can just feel that Nicole and Katie want to help you find the perfect dress for you- you will never feel rushed or like they are keeping any information from you. Finally, during alterations the seamstress Yana has been wonderful. Each time I've gone in she has been very meticulous about each alteration. I have lost a little weight leading up to the wedding and each time she made sure to take in my dress in the appropriate places to make sure it is a perfect fit. I have my final pick up next week and feel totally confident it will be perfect.

I want to add that Paisley Bridal also sells beautiful accessories. Almost everything I wore was from them. After I purchased my gown last August, I went back in November and purchased my veil, garter, and headband during the accessory sample sale. They do not sell shoes, but I loved the sample ones they had for brides to wear during fittings that I actually located the pair and bought them from Badgley Mischka.

mely sweet and well-informed. From just a very brief conversation with Nicole during my very first visit, her dress picks were on-point with my style and preference. She also stayed well within my budget (even exceedingly lower with some picks). I ended up choosing one of the dresses she had picked out for me! I knew it was 'the one' as soon as she buttoned it up, but she still suggested that I try on the one other dress I hadn't tried on yet, just to be sure. Showing that she wasn't just in it for 'the sell'.
The salon is adorable (chandelier and all).
After choosing my dress, Nicole sent me a handwritten thank you note for choosing her salon for my big day. I couldn't have smiled bigger when receiving that (who sends written notes anymore? Amazing!).
The whole experience was tip top - from a communication standpoint to each fitting appointment. The seamstress was also excellent. She knew exactly what I was looking for in terms of how my dress fit, and didn't care how many times I wanted a slight altering to it. The day I picked up my dress, we all got teary-eyed (happy tears!).
There was never a care that I would arrive with a certified troop (mom, soon-to-be mother in law and sister in law, best friend/bridesmaid, sister, etc.) in fact, it was welcomed and PS the dressing room was big enough to fit all of them!. I really couldn't have wished for a better experience as a bride who is relatively chill and stress-free (but somewhat picky in her dress choice).
I can't end this review without commenting on the curation of the dresses in the store. Though not all were my style, per se, they were ALL beautiful, one after the other. You can tell they were picked with thought.
I do want to mention that I also got my veil from Paisley. It was an adorable pouf (a la Sex in the City) and something I couldn't find anywhere (but the illusive Pinterest of course). Paisley had it. They even attached a clip on it for me, to add some bling!

I told her I was already pressured by other salons that told me my "look" was hard to find and to settle with something else. Nicole and I clicked IMMEDIATELY. She brought me 6 dresses and the 4th dress I tried on I was in love. I told her right then and there, I LOVE THIS DRESS. THIS IS MY DRESS. I WANT IT NOW!! I did not leave that day with the gown (I think it was too early to purchase it) but I promised her I would not go anywhere else. Flash forward a few months later and I call her up and she remembered me!! (Customer service!!) and she told me IT WAS TIME TO ORDER THE DRESS!!! Best day ever.
Yana, their in house seamstress, is the best. She is honest in what looks good and is flattering for YOUR body type. You got curves, she will tell you to show it off! You want to hide something, she will tell you you are beautiful but if you want it hidden she will hide it! I had a second dress and Yana was able to alter that dress for me lickety split!!
I also had a MAJOR veil issue aka I could not find the style of veil I wanted and NICOLE, my bridal dream come true, found me MORE THAN ONE VEIL in the Juliet cap style I was searching for and even OFFERED to MAKE me a custom veil. I die. Where else do you get service like this?? NO WHERE!!!
If you want the big store experience just to say you did it, go ahead. If you want an intimate experience with people that actually KNOW your name (and likes/dislikes) and not just how much you paid for a dress then come here. You are not a walking dollar sign here.
Nicole is VERY knowledgeable and has years of experience in the bridal market so she knows what's up! Her store is beautiful, clean and well organized.
I wish I could get married again just to see Nicole & the whole team at Paisley Bridal. I cannot thank them enough for making my wedding day PERFECT & STRESS FREE.

tside my comfort zone and I ended up choosing a dress I never would have tried on unless she suggested it. My dress came in with plenty of time for fittings and just a few alterations with out feeling rushed through the process. And because of her knowledge and expertise she ordered a size that fit almost perfect, just a few alterations at the top. The seamstresses at Paisley are super knowledgeable and definitely know what they're doing. I would recommend Paisley Bridal, Nicole and the rest of her team to anyone looking for a wedding dress.

I was very happy with all of the vendors that I chose for my wedding- everyone did a wonderful job. But out of all (15?) of them, Paisley Bridal was my absolute favorite! Nicole is the best! From the first time I went into the store looking...
for a dress, she was very helpful, accommodating and simply a pleasure to work with. She was patient as I decided on the right dress and offered great suggestions without being pushy. She made, what should have been a stressful process, a very enjoyable experience. Before going with Paisley, I shopped around at Kleinfeld, RK Bridal and several other shops in NJ and NY. None compared to the customer service I received with Nicole. If you're looking for a wedding dress, Paisley Bridal is a must!

o wanted to visit a few other places before deciding) but came back the next day and bought the dress. Her selection of dresses were beautiful with many different styles and materials.

For alterations, she was easy to work with and had a great value. I would highly recommend looking for and getting a dress from Paisley!

budget, everywhere I went tried to up-sell me. They didn't take the time to talk to me, ask me questions, or make me feel special. I was feeling defeated until I found Paisley Bridal! Its a hidden GEM. The owner Nicole is an absolute genius, she was meant to do this! Nicole took her time with me, asked questions, and really took an interest in my vision. She was SO knowledgeable when it came to style, cuts, fabrics, and trend. She in fact picked out my dress! I told her I was open-minded, and she delivered. She knew my body and her expertise did not fail me. " I said yes to the dress" because of her :) I never thought I would be the bride to have that moment of just "knowing" its my dress. I put it on and just "knew". After my mom started tearing it confirmed everything. The boutique is small, intimate, very clean and modern. If you are bride that's looking for the ultimate bridal experience, please do yourself a favor and go to Paisley Bridal. The dress selection is trendy, and the prices are SO reasonable! I purchased my veil there as well. Nicole Vega and Paisley Bridal THANK YOU THANK YOU

Nicole at Paisley Bridal just gets it right. She is warm and welcoming, and her shop is beautifully appointed. Approachable and friendly, Nicole puts you instantly at ease. I found myself gushing over the various details of my relationship and ...
my upcoming wedding as I tried on her amazing gowns.
The collection of dresses was surprisingly comprehensive for a smaller store, and as a plus-size bride, I was especially pleased. Nicole has a genuine eye for what will look flattering, and is up on current fashions, without catering to the trends that will be here today, gone tomorrow. It was a relief to be in the hands of someone who was so competent and experienced, but without any of the snobbery sometimes encountered in the wedding industry. Nicole is genuine and down to earth.
The one-on-one appointment time was a terrific experience. I didn't have to compete with anyone for Nicole's attention, and I never felt rushed along, or pressured into making any decisions or purchases.
Prices are competitive and affordable. Do yourself a favor and check this place out. I have visited several other bridal salons, and Paisley Bridal is truly one of a kind. This is everything shopping small business should be.

for and kept everything well within my price range. She was attentive and put up with the entourage of girls I had along with me. Then after being completely confused with all of the mixed expressions around me she pulled a plus size dress even though I would be swimming in it just so I can see the style. It was perfect. My eyes completely welled up with Nicole in the dressing room with me. Nicole was so great. I can't wait until my dress comes in and she is making me a custom jacket. Just what I wanted.

d yet to find a venue, but Paisley is located in my neighborhood so I wanted to come and try things on just to get an idea of what looks good on me.
I ended up going to David's Bridal first and confirmed what styles looked right on my petite lightly overweight body. I went into my appointment with Nicole knowing what didn't look good on me, and we tried on about 5 gowns. I fell in absolute love with one of them, and although my mother wasn't there (she lives in CA) Nicole allowed us to face time and get her approval.
I was the only appointment in the whole salon, which is gorgeous and very well kept. Nicole is incredibly personable and really sweet. She is totally honest about what looks good, and doesn't push the sale. She knew I didn't look good in a gown similar to the one I chose, and even though it was $250 more expensive she didn't push. I really appreciated her honesty!
Thank you Nicole!
