Janell and her team really go above and beyond to be so much more than just another bridal shop - they're truly the best!! I wore a strapless gown, and you'll never have to worry about the dress slipping or falling down if you do. I was comfortable and could move around, but felt so elegant while doing so!! I also went into the shop with a type of dress in mind, and like many other brides, completely changed my mind when a different type of dress was recommended for me.

"It's all about you!" There are no truer words when it comes to Posh Bridal. From the moment you walk in the door, you are treated like the only bride in the salon.

After my fiance proposed to me in April earlier this year, I realized that I may be the only girl on earth who has never even thought about wedding planning - including having no "dream dress" ideas. After my engagement I quickly jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon and started... Read More doing some research and even then had a bit of "direction" but no real ideas or set styles. I figured I'd start the dress process early (we've set our date for next September, 2018) because I am very picky, and being as clueless as I am in trying to describe what I like I figure it would be best to start dress-shopping as soon as possible. I had researched a few stores in the area, and after reading many reviews and having a personal strong glowing reference from a close friend of ours who also found her "dream dress" at Posh Bridal, I made my appointment. Prior to my appointment, the staff was very friendly with the scheduling process and also very professional. I let them know that I'd be bringing a few people with me and didn't feel that I was being a burden at all. I did try and bring some pictures to describe my "style", but again, I really was quite clueless with how to express the styles that I was interested in (I didn't even really know which styles to check off on my interest card at check-in as I wasn't exactly sure which styles matched what name). With all of that being said - my fashion specialist, Kat, was absolutely wonderful. As I browsed around the store with my family she asked me if I had seen any dresses that I liked and I pointed out a few that I thought looked beautiful on the rack. The first dress that she brought out for me looked pretty hanging in the dressing room - but it was not something I would have ever picked myself to try on. After I put the dress on I was extremely surprised at how much I loved it (I ended up actually "saying yes" to this dress!). I tried on more dresses after that including a few of the ones I had said that I liked while initially browsing and surprisingly did not like the way some of them looked on me (all beautiful dresses, though!) I ended up saying yes to that first dress that I tried on and was super thankful to have a staff that was able to work with the little information that I gave her about my style and help me find my "dream dress" (seriously though I LOVE this dress!) I felt that Kat was very genuine, kind, and educated / talented in assisting me find my dress and she also made me feel very comfortable, too. I can say with 100% confidence that I would recommended this boutique to any and all brides, especially if you are looking for a very knowledgeable staff that will make you feel beautiful!

When you get engaged, and even before that to be honest, every girl dreams of her wedding dress….the perfect wedding dress. The night I got engaged, I started planning all of the wedding shops I would be visiting. You see, I live in Manhattan, and I had been dress shopping... Read More with many of my friends who got engaged, so I knew the “go-to” shops: Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Kleinfelds, etc. One of these shops definitely had my perfect dress….But from the very first contacts I made, the initial discussions focused on exorbitant prices, rush fees for my dress (since my wedding was six months away) and an extended waiting time for booking initial appointments. I didn’t feel welcomed or appreciated in speaking with these shops. The following weekend I was planning a visit to my parents’ home in Lancaster, PA and my mom asked if I would be willing to check out two stores. Having worked in the corporate office of Saks Fifth Avenue, specifically in the contemporary buying department, I was sure that Lancaster shops would be unable to compete with NYC shops. I reluctantly agreed to go along with her. The first shop was exactly what I had anticipated….gaudy, glittery, over-the-top styles, and not at all what I was looking for. However, my preconceived notions about what Lancaster had to offer were shattered when I found myself in the dressing room at Posh Bridal. I was working with Janell Berte, and I was amazed at the beauty, style, and look of every dress she brought into the fitting room for me to try. She listened to what I was looking for, and she found it. It didn’t seem possible, but I actually fell in love with two different dresses! I returned to the store the next day, and I made my decision on THE dress! It was perfection. Plus, the price was right; there were no rush fees; it was available in petite, and Janell and her staff were always such a pleasure to work with. I was invited to participate in Posh’s Style On the Aisle event where champagne and appetizers were served while I had my hair done, and tried on different veils, headpieces, and jewelry along with my gorgeous dress to get a sneak peak of how I might look on my wedding day. In my NYC job, I have dealt with hundreds of vendors, sales representatives, employees, etc. in the fashion industry, and I can honestly state that I have never worked with anyone as wonderful, thoughtful, considerate, flexible, and kind as Janell Berte! In getting to know Janell, I came to find out that she used to make wedding dresses for Vera Wang, Klienfelds, and countless other designers along with her own label. She has a keen eye for style, fit, and overall look, and her wedding dress knowledge is amazing. She is a talented, creative woman and an animal lover, like myself. She actually designed and created a custom tuxedo for my 6 pound Chihuahua, Barnabie. He couldn’t have looked cuter. He, too, was picture perfect in his dapper attire and he looked his very best for his important job of accompanying me down the aisle. I cannot recommend Posh Bridal more for any bride who wants a perfect experience….and really, what bride doesn’t? Even when compared to every option in NYC, there is no better place to go to find the dress of your dreams. My family loved the fact that my wedding dress hailed from Lancaster, PA…my hometown, and I loved that, too. But, it also didn’t hurt that it was the most beautiful dress I have ever worn, and it made all of my dreams come true. Thanks, Posh Bridal!
