I absolutely love Renate's. My sister purchased her wedding dress here, I purchased my prom dress many years ago and when I got engaged I knew where I wanted to go and look for my wedding dress. I purchased my dress and it happened to be by Alfred Angelo. When I received the... Read More news about his brand closing after my order was placed I was so upset. Donna and her team went above and beyond to keep me updated on the situation and answer any questions that I had. As time passed and it was known that I would not be receiving my dress Donna worked with me giving me designers to check out. I found a dress that caught my attention and she ordered it. When the dress arrived I tried it on and FELL INLOVE with it. It actually made me happy that things didn't work out with my first dress, and I would have never stumbled upon it if it wasn't for Donna. She truly is the best. You can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and puts in the time and effort to get to know you and what you are looking for. There are so many more things that her and her team helped me with, I can go on and on! I also ordered my bridesmaids dresses, tuxes (The Tuxedo Shop), and mother of the bride dress through Renate's. Everyone looked stunning!! I highly recommend!!

I chose to go to Renate's after dealing with them a few times in the past. I had visited a few other bridal salons before settling on my dress. I was very impressed by how organized and clean Renate's was. They had a good selection of dresses, especially non lace ones since I... Read More did not want lace at all. Donna was extremely patient and helpful, even staying open for me on a Sunday so I could run in after a different appointment at a different salon to show my maid of honors the dress that I was eventually going to end up buying. That kind of customer service is not found in many other places. My alterations were done perfectly, and when my mom and I decided we did not like the buttons they used for the bustle they were able to cover the buttons with material from my dress to camouflage them.

I am AMAZED at this place! I went in on a whim since one of the designers I was looking at was sold here. They were so accommodating with appointment times (Made one 2 hours before going) and were friendly and welcoming when speaking with me on the phone about the designer I was... Read More asking about. I came in expecting to just try on some dresses and ended up saying yes to the dress!!!!! They were so helpful, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable in my decision. They were not pushy at all (as I've heard can happen at other places). Isn't this what everyone wants in a bridal shop?! Thank you Renate's for helping me to find the wedding dress of my dreams!!!!

I am a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding July 2017 and a bride getting married August 2018. We ordered our bridesmaids dresses January 2017 and we're told they would arrive middle of May- they did not come in until the first week in June, leaving us 4 weeks to get our dresses... Read More altered. On top of that, every person had a significant amount of alterations that needed to be done because the dresses were ordered too big! I was charged extra for getting a bigger size because of my chest and the woman I bring all of my dresses has to take it in on the sides and said that they shouldn't have ordered it that big! My sister is tall and they told her that they needed extra length and paid for it and now has to get almost 4 inches taken off! Almost every girl in the bridal party has to get unnecessary alterations to their dress! This process has been a headache for my cousin and her bridal party and as a bride still looking for bridesmaid dresses I can confidently say I will NOT be using this establishment or referring them to anyone! Poor business and customer service.

I want to start off by saying that I'm not a die hard shopper, I shop mainly for items I know I need and usually by clothes that I would get a lot of use of for the prices they have. That being said, MELISSA WAS AMAZING when it came to shopping for dresses. I showed her pictures... Read More of dresses that I loved, asked me my round about budget, and she picked out a dress for me to try on, while letting myself and the other girls I had brought with me pick out dresses for me to try. Seven dresses later, I finally tried the dress that Melissa picked and it ended up being THE ONE! She was patient, professional, kind, and the price of the dress didn't make me faint! Altering the dress was just as pleasant of an experience! Lela was amazing and helped make the dress fit like a glove! Every member of the staff was so polite and sweet whenever I came to try the dress on! I felt beautiful wearing my dress and have Renate's to thank!

Every Bride needs a Fairy Godmother and The owner Donna was mine. From day one we just clicked. I came into Renate's on a whim & left as family. Everyone went above and beyond to make my wedding dress experience one in a million. I will never be able to express my thanks to... Read More Renate's for all they did for me!! from the late nights laughing & sharing wedding plans.. to the comforting hugs as i cried because something on my dress was uncomfortable ( which was beyond perfect the day of the wedding ). Even when Donna was sick and couldn't make it to my fitting one night she called me to say she could see me on the store cameras and that I looked beautiful ). I hold every moment of my dress experience deep in my heart and only hope every bride makes/gets the chance to experience all I did. So thank you thank you thank you & trust me when I say you will be beyond happy with choosing Renate's!!!!

Slow service, but stunning dress!

I didn’t have much time to spare searching leisurely for a wedding dress, as I had a fairly short engagement. After a not-so-great trip to David’s Bridal, I decided to stop into Renate’s because they were so close to my house. It was only my second time trying on dresses, and... Read More that was all it took. I found the absolute most perfect dress, even though it was nothing at all what I had envisioned. They also provided me with a stunning veil, and even had it cleaned and fixed up for me since it was the floor sample at no extra cost. The service was a tad slow at times, but the staff was friendly and willing to spend a lot of time with me, especially in alterations, to ensure I was happy with everything. I wish they had been a more up-front about alteration costs, but the dress did fit like a glove and the bustle, though a project to string up, looked beautiful. I was so, so happy with my dress and I have Renate’s to thank for putting me in it!

They helped me find "the dress"

I first came to this boutique alone simply wanting to try on different styles of dresses and Donna helped me find what was perfect for me. My mother and bridesmaids also got their dresses here. Everyone was very helpful and accomodating. The only issue I had was with the... Read More alterations. The day of my wedding the bustle was not done correctly and no one was able to get the dress to lift up properly which led to it dragging all over the floor all night.

I loved woring with Donna at Renate's bridal shop, however, many times when myself and my bridesmaids were there, there seemed to be a lot of confusion. A few times, we were sitting around waiting for someone to help us. One other issue was the train on my dress and my... Read More bridesmaid's dresses. All of our dresses needs to be bustled, but were not done very well. They all kept unhooking throughout the night and my bridal attendant had to sew the train to the dress so it would stay.
