AMAZING service at Posh Bridal. You will not find this kind of personalized attention at any other bridal salon in the area. This was the 2nd salon that we visited, and I wish we had just come here first! Don't waste your time anywhere else. Janell and her team made me feel... Read More so confident and beautiful. I wanted a gown with sleeves, and when I fell absolutely in love with a strapless gown, Janell being a designer, was able to build the top half of the dress while I was trying it on, with some lace she had in the shop. Other salons will tell you that they can do anything, but having Janell actually SHOW me what the dress would look like finished before I even bought it, made me confident that I was making the absolute right choice! Where else can you get that kind of personalized attention from a designer! Thank you Janell and team for the best bridal experience a girl could ask for!

I had my wedding dress custom-made by Janell for my wedding in October 2016. The entire Posh team was incredible to work with, and gave me special attention and advice every time I came to the store. On my first trip, I identified the aspects of a variety of different gowns... Read More that I liked, and Janell was able to quickly make a sketch of what my custom gown would look like. I went in periodically for fittings, and each time I was so impressed with the craftsmanship of the gown, and her careful attention to detail. It was a fantastic experience, and I’m so glad I worked with Janell and the Posh team for my wedding. The dress was beautiful and beyond my expectations!

Truly wonderful. The ladies at Posh make SURE that your experience is professional, friendly, and special. I felt like I tried on a thousand beautiful dresses, but the selection at Posh was by far the most unique and beautiful. They host fun, free events like Style on the... Read More Aisle where they brought in a hair stylist then gussied you up in fun accessories you could purchase for your day (all while wearing your dress, of course!). Shout out to Keri and Kat! Janell is a hoot and KNOWS her stuff and I feel that I am in such good hands for my alterations. I know it sounds cheesey, but they really make you feel part of the "Posh family."

The ladies at Posh Bridal were wonderful! My consultant was Rachael and this was her first bridal appointment...she was amazing! Very sweet and down to earth. There was no pressure to choose a dress right away and we tried different styles to eliminate what I didn't like. The... Read More service was also great. Janell Berte (owner and designer) came out and sketched out a custom dress for me! She was delightful. I am so happy I chose Posh Bridal for my wedding dress. I would HIGHLY recommend coming here.

This is my second time at POSH and I was NOT disappointed. They were phenomenal when I went with my sister to get her dress last year, and they knocked it out of the park again! Every expectation was met, then exceeded! The staff was wonderful. Brooke helped me try on dresses,... Read More answered questions and made me feel completely at ease. There was absolutely no pressure, whatsoever. I decided on a dress, but when I got home I was having second thoughts. Immediately the owner, Janell, put the dress on hold and got me back in asap. She knew why I was doubting. I usually shop alone and she could tell at my first appointment I was overwhelmed. She talked me through all the possible alterations and gave honest opinions while honoring my style and what I wanted. I left feeling excited and confident in my initial decision, and I will never be able to thank her enough for the precious time we spent together. It will be a memory I will always cherish. Janell was born to do this, and her passion for what she does radiates! To have someone dedicate their full attention to your needs was incredible. I can not sing their praises enough!!!

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!

I am so excited to be a POSH bride! From the minute I walked into the boutique, the warmth with which I was greeted made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I knew I was in good hands! During the selection process, Brooke did a fantastic job talking me through the dresses that I... Read More tried on. She listened attentively to what I liked and disliked about each dress. In the end, Brooke was the one who pulled the dress I said “Yes!” to. I believe that truly goes to show how well-trained and amazing the team at POSH is. They know their stuff! Having Janell and Kat peek in during my session with Brooke was also pretty special. I could tell that the POSH team functions as a family and they are all there to support the bride. When I officially said “Yes” to my dress, I was blown away at how the entire team treated me like a princess! I felt so cared for and important. It was such a special moment and I’m so thankful it will forever be a part of my wedding planning process!

Our subsequent fitting appointment, a marathon weekend back in Lancaster, was so smooth and easy.

Brooke and Janelle helped tremendously to adjust the gowns with clips, belts and other accessories to help me understand exactly how each gown would look and fit. They were so kind and careful in the dressing room and I felt so comfortable with them the entire time! Brooke and Janelle offered guidance and information regarding each gown. They also exhibited patience while I thought through the gorgeous pieces while getting feedback from my party. Not once did I feel rushed or pressured by Janelle or Brooke! I found my dream gown designed by Gemy Maalouf. Janelle assured me that she could work with her to make one adjustment to the dress to make it exactly what I was looking for. Her expertise in the field truly shines and I could not have asked for a better person to help me find my way in my dress hunting journey!! My dress hunt concluded with a champagne toast and some fun photos! Posh Bridal even sent me home with the cork from my champagne bottle, an awesome goody bag, and an invitation to an event in February to help find accessories and makeup/hair ideas! I could not have asked for anything more perfect and I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a top-notch experience to head to Posh Bridal.
