LOVED THEM!

Reviewed on 7/31/2014 Meredith J

I don't know where to begin....They were exactly what I wanted a bridal boutique to be! I went there with my mother after several disastrous appointments at bridal shops. We had an appointment and I met with a lovely lady named Vicky. She looked at me and in 10 minutes had a... Read More room full of dresses for me to try on. Styles I had not even thought I would like, she had me try on. I swore I would not get a strapless dress and it would not be form fitting.....well, as life would have it a strapless form fitting gown is what I wore on my wedding day! It was perfection and exactly what made me look the best. She knew what my body needed and I am so glad I trusted her to help me! Poffie Girls are professional, organized and truthful about delivery times....I can't say that about the store we bought our bridesmaids gowns from. If I could change one thing, it would be that I should have bought all of the girls dresses through them. It would have saved me a huge headache....I tell everyone I know to go to Poffie Girls now....it is worth the drive from Charlotte. Believe me ladies!!!

All I can say is WOW... Poffie Girls is above the rest! I went in there to try on wedding dresses as I had heard great things about Poffie Girls. The very first time I tried on dresses I found the ONE! Poffie Girls has such a great selection and their staff is so friendly. They... Read More truly make you feel like the only bride in the store. The staff helped me pick out the dress, earrings, a bracelet and my veil. Not only did I find my wedding dress there, but I ordered my bridesmaids dresses and my rehearsal dinner dress there as well. They have a great selection and it was a one-stop shop for my dress needs. On my wedding day I got so many compliments on my dress and several people said they had never seen a dress like it! I felt really special and I knew I made the right choice. I was SO happy with my Poffie Girls experience I'd HIGHLY recommend it to future brides!!!!

So, I purchased my Mon Cheri for David Tutera gown in March 2016. My wedding is June 2017. When I orginally purchased the dress, I was told they were ordering me a size ZERO, when I get the dress in June of 2016 the dress was a size FOUR! Way too big! Well I was also told that... Read More my first alteration and fitting would be included in my purchase price, not true at all, Poffie Girls actually recommends Dolce Alterations in Gastonia, little did I know that Poffie Girls gets a percentage off of your entire alterations bill when you go to Dulce after being recommended by Poffie Girls! That's not all! I was also told by the Manager at Poffie Girls that David Tutera is an Italian Designer and designs his gowns around Italian women, completely false! David Tutera is actually American and the company Mon Cheri is ALSO american!!! So I do not recommend Poffie Girls to anyone, don't get me wrong, I love my dress! but the customer service and lies I received did NOT impress me one bit. I'm now getting my gown Altered by Cheryl Young by Carolina Bridal and Alterations, LOVE her!!! shes been in the business for 30+years! She knows her stuff let me tell ya! Took my dress to her Jan 28th, My first fitting is Feb 25th! (: THATS how good she is! Just my personal experience laid out there for you ladies!

Poffie Girls is a beautiful bridal shop with a wide selection. I ended up buying my wedding dress from them solely because I loved the dress. Looking back on it, I would have ordered my same wedding dress through a different bridal shop. Every time I have gone in there, they... Read More have acted as if it was a burden to help me find a dress. The woman who helped me try on dresses (both the first and second time) was very rushed and only cared about making a sale. Poffie Girls' appointments are 1.5 hours long. When you come out of the dressing room, family can take pictures, etc. The saleswoman was rushing me back into the room without giving my family and I time to actually describe what we liked/didn't like about each one. I finished 20 minutes before my appointment was to end because we were rushed. If I asked who designed the wedding dress, it was as if I asked a question that she didn't want to answer thinking I would buy the dress from someone else. When I asked what my waist size was, out of curiosity, she said she couldn't tell me until I ordered the dress. Every other bridal shop I went to after Poffie Girls gave me this information without me even asking. Since we ended 20 minutes early, I decided to look at their bridesmaids dresses. I asked to see a swatch book to match dresses to my colors. She was reluctant to let me see the books, didn't describe how the dresses were laid out in the showroom and walked away to talk to another coworker. As I was leaving the bridal shop, I overheard two women who watched me try on dresses talking poorly about me. I went to several other bridal shops in the Charlotte area and didn't find anything I liked. The quality of the bridal shops wasn't as nice as Poffie Girls and neither was the selection. But one thing that stood out about the other bridal shops I attended was how they genuinely wanted to help you find your dress. Buying a wedding dress is more than just money and making a sale. Women need time to think over their decisions regarding their wedding dress as it is the most important dress they will ever wear. They shouldn't feel pressure from sales people either. I've never written a review about a business or asked to "speak to the manager" but I felt this was truly needed.

Purchased my Bridal Gown from here. The Bridal Experience trying on gowns was great. My consultant took time listening to me and helped me find my perfect gown! I had come with a specific dress I wanted to try on, they carried the Designer, but did not have that gown in stock.... Read More In the end of course I picked the gown I had no idea I really wanted but it was absolutely perfect for me! I did not feel rushed and my consultant took care of all my fine details and ordering my gown down to the last buttons. My only complaint would be from my gown pickup day. Unfortunately I came during prom shopping season so the Salon was swamped with teens and their parents waiting in line to head upstairs. All the consultants were very busy and I did have to wait awhile to get my gown, try it on with assistance, & to pay the balance for the gown. Other than that my experience was awesome. They recommend Dulce Alterations in Gastonia for any gown changes, which I also used their services & loved!

My appointment with Poffie Girls was fabulous. Brynne helped me find the perfect wedding dress for my big day. She was patient, accommodating and never made me feel rushed to make a decision to get onto the next appointment. You could tell the management staff was trying to... Read More hurry her along to keep the appointments on schedule but she never relayed those feelings toward me. After you purchase the dress, they are completely done with you. Since I bought the sample size dress, we paid to have them store it for a couple months as my wedding was still a year away. Literally seemed to be the biggest inconvenience to them. Why offer it as as service if you don't want to do it? When we went to pick it up, they were rude, snippy and all but threw the dress at me and shoved me out the door. The lady held up the pink bag, still zipped and goes "Is this your dress"? Then we asked them to measure a couple of my bridesmaids I had with me so they could order their dresses & the lady refused to do so without charging me. They were the ones who originally told me to have my girls go into any bridal salon or seamstress and they would measure them for free.... seems a little hypocritical to not offer the same service? Thankfully, I loved my wedding dress. That was just about the only positive.

Kayleigh was AMAZING to work with!!! I can't say enough great things about her. I had the time of my life working with her at Poffie Girls. First, the place itself is beautiful. They have by far the best selection of dresses I'd ever seen and had exactly the style I was looking... Read More for - girly, fun, but not over the top. Their dresses were also much more modern and young age (in a good way!) than many other stores I looked at that just had a really matronly style of stress. Kayleigh made me and my family feel so welcome from the start, and she made the whole process so fun and non-stressful. She took her time and made sure she understood exactly what I was looking for. By the second dress, she had nailed it. I tried on many dresses but we kept coming back to that one and I eventually went for it! She also decked me out in jewelry and a veil (which I ended up buying because they matched so well!) so I could get the true bride experience. Despite her enthusiasm, she never once pressured or pushed me. She supported whatever decision I made and emphasized that the day was all about me. Poffie girls is just such a fun place - everything I would imagine in a bridal salon and more. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun experience and lots of great options!! They even had cake samples and champagne while I was there - so much fun! Thanks Poffie Girls!!

This store is AMAZING! I went to 3 different bridal stores and this was BY FAR the best!The customer service is top notch.

I had a fantastic experience at Poffie Girls, and chose my dress after just two visits. Brynne was extremely friendly, and patient, and did a great job assisting me as I had no idea what to expect going into the process. Prices varied making it nice to have the options, and... Read More there were plenty of styles to choose from, too. The only hard part (and I don't think this is unique to PG) was that all of the dresses were much smaller than my size, so it's hard to tell the true feel of the fit. That's a bit scary but you have to trust when they take your measurements and order your size, it will be just right. I'd recommend going on a week day because it's MUCH less chaotic and you can get even more of a personalized experience than you can on a Saturday.
