Kayte helped me a few weeks ago at their new location and my experience was absolutely fantastic.

I finally found my dream dress at Serendipity! I went to 5 different bridal salons around Austin over the course of a few weeks in search of my wedding gown. It quickly became a very stressful process trying to narrow down my favorites and make sure they were within my budget.... Read More Kayte at Serendipity was by far the most attentive and helpful person I encountered throughout the search. She listened to my needs and after struggling to find something I loved, she pulled a wild card dress for me on good faith and I LOVED IT! Totally outside the box, would have never pulled it myself but that ended up being the one! I owe her so much for that and was especially thankful for the celebratory champagne toast after the big decision. Thank you!

I cannot say enough good things about Serendipity Bridal! I had two appointments scheduled for dress shopping and I cancelled the second appointment 30 minutes into our appointment because my family and me were so thrilled with the selection. The shop is gorgeous, and the wood... Read More floors and the rooms for the bride and guests are big and beautiful. From the minute my mom, sister and my fiancées sisters walked in, the sales associates made us feel so special and supported. There are many different styles for wedding dresses and it was so much fun walking around and seeing all of the beautiful styles! They also work within your budget and don't make you feel pressure. I wish I could dress shop again because we had so much fun! Once I said "yes to the dress" Brigitte (she was so amazing in helping us!) brought out champagne and we celebrated.... the sweetest memory with my family! My family flew half way across the country to join me for wedding dress shopping and I feel so blessed we chose a shop that made our weekend perfect. I can't thank Serendipity enough! If you are a bride, you must go here and you will not be disappointed.

I love Serendipity Bridal! By far, it is the best bridal boutique I visited on my adventure of finding a wedding dress. The staff was very professional and friendly and I received the 5-star experience from start to finish. I had gone to other bridal shops in the Austin and... Read More Houston area and Serendipity out-shined them all...by a long shot. I ended up going to Serendipity twice. It was the first place I went and the last place I went to try on dresses - both times were amazing experiences that I'll never forget. Everyone that works there is very knowledgeable about the designers and dresses in their store as well as about the wedding dress industry as a whole. They are all fashion-savvy and know exactly which pieces go together based on your shape and style. I worked Brigitte and I loved working with her! She is so knowledgeable about wedding dresses and the wedding fashion industry. She had a 6th sense for which dresses would look beautiful on me even before I put them on. She also has a great, friendly personality that makes the whole experience really fun and enjoyable when most times it can be pretty stressful. The rest of the staff was fantastic to work with as well. They were all quick to offer their opinions which I loved. The thing I liked the best about Serendipity is that their goal is to help sure you find a dress that you love, feel confident and look beautiful in. Unlike, other bridal stores, they weren't trying to "push a sale." They care about the customer. I also liked that they offered helpful opinions when I expressed concerns about certain dresses looking good on me. Without their help, I wouldn't have been open-minded enough to try on an A-line dress. This led to me finding the dress I am absolutely in love with. If it wasn't for them, I'd still be looking for the perfect dress. The store was clean and they had the best selection of designers and styles out of all the boutiques that I had gone to. They have the most beautiful dresses that I have ever seen! It was really hard not to try on all of them! Price-wise, they mostly have dresses in the higher-end but I found plenty of dresses in my price range...enough to warrant two appointments. The dress I ended up getting was actually below my $2k max budget. The dress I purchased was from the "WToo" line. My dress is coming in in October and from there I will start the alterations process which is in-house. Based on my experience with them so far, I have no doubt that this process will be just as stellar. I can't wait to continue working with Serendipity!

But nothing compared to the dress at... Read More Serendipity, so we went back and bought that one. The dress was beautiful, and the price was very reasonable. I wanted to add lace straps, and it was no problem. I also loved how you got dressed in a nice big private room, while your guests waited on a couch outside the room, and then you had a big reveal for each dress. They also gave you free mimosas while you were trying on the dresses! The staff were all very friendly and all very easy to work with.

On June 18, 2016 around 2:00 p.m., I walked into Serendipity with my bridesmaids on our way to grab a bite to eat. We had just had an appointment at another place where we had a positive experience. At Serendipity, I wanted to quickly show them the sample of the wedding dress... Read More I recently purchased there (for several thousands of dollars) and let them glance at the small selection of bridesmaids dresses. We didn't have or need an appointment and weren't planning on trying anything on. In fact, I arrived before my bridesmaids and let the staff know that. The two staff persons at Serendipity that I interacted with were rude and unwelcoming. For example and among other things, one of them grabbed the sample of my wedding dress that I had taken to the next isle to show to my bridesmaids and said something along the lines of, "We don't drag" and then she rudely took the dress away and walked off. They were unwelcoming the entire time and did not offer us any type of welcome or common courtesies. It was embarrassing and I'm sorry I invited my bridesmaids to go there and be treated in such a way. We will not be purchasing our bridesmaids dresses there. My wedding dress is all but paid for and the staff at Serendipity were perfectly pleasant when I was looking to spend thousands of dollars; but afterward, clearly no longer felt the need to extend even common courtesies. We were extremely disappointed and turned off by the experience.

I loved my dress and the alterations were perfect. The customer service and experiences I had are the reason for my 2-star review. I bought my dress a year in advance of my wedding and had a great experience with the rep that helped me. I only tried on 4 dresses total at... Read More Serendipity, but this was going to be my third and final stop in my search. She pulled a dress from the rack that I never would have tried on, and it ended up being perfect. I was so happy! Early this year I started having meetings with their alterations specialist, Rosie. Rosie was very helpful and knowledgeable, but the first two meetings I had with her were the exact same. Meaning, she did not alter my dress at all between meeting 1 and meeting 2 (a six week span), which was a little frustrating, as I live in South Austin and drove up for what seemed no reason. At 8pm the night before my final fitting (which was 2 weeks before my wedding), a representative called and told me they had to cancel my fitting due to a death in the family of my seamstress. She then asked me what all needed to be done to the dress since I was last in. I told her "uh, everything, I guess? There hadn't been any alterations at all the last time I was in." She immediately got off the phone with me to find another alterations specialist and asked me if I could go to her house at noon on Saturday. I asked if she was telling me that nothing had been done to my dress and that my wedding was only 2 weeks away. She said "that's why I asked you what needed to be done." I do not, nor would I, know the current status of my dress. I insisted on keeping my initial appointment to come in and see my dress. I went in and thankfully, the dress was done. It fit, and my rep that helped me apologized for the confusion and offered to come in on Wednesday (even though they are closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays), because my wedding was on a Friday. Come Monday morning, they called and asked if I could come in Monday or Thursday, which tells me they had no intention of accommodating me. I asked why she couldn't meet me on Wednesday anymore and she replied, "She just can't now." I wanted both my mom and sister (who are in different states) to be there for pickup so they could both see how to bustle the dress. Needless to say, that did not happen. Nice store and beautiful dresses, but the customer service and problem solving skills are not there, and this is not what a bride wants right before her big day.
