I bought my wedding gown at Serendipity in January 2018, and it was an AMAZING experience. To be honest, I was dreading the dress shopping experience, and my first two appointments were stressful and disappointing. At the first two boutiques I went to in Austin (Blue Bridal and... Read More Signature Bridal), I felt incredibly rushed, had to squish into small fitting rooms with my mom and friends, and was disappointed in the options the consultants showed me. Serendipity was the complete opposite! Their location is GORGEOUS - it has amazing natural light, an open floor plan, and the fitting rooms are private and comfortable (they even had robes for the brides to wear in between trying on gowns - there was lots of little details like that!). My consultant Kayte understood my style IMMEDIATELY and she wasn't afraid to give me her honest opinion, which was so valuable and appreciated. She is a true expert and knows everything about the designers and the dresses themselves. During our hour and a half appointment, I was able to try on over 10 dresses, choose one, and even choose a veil. Kayte even took dresses off of mannequins so I could wear them. I cannot say enough amazing things about Serendipity and will recommend them to every bride I know for the rest of time!!

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 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 had a wonderful experience at Serendipity. I have very specific tastes, but I was pleasantly surprised by the many interesting, unique, and fashion-forward dresses there (in addition to many beautiful, more traditional gowns). I went to every major bridal boutique in Austin -... Read More Julian Gold, Blush, Blue, Unbridaled - but I was most impressed by the range of selection available at Serendipity. Additionally, I was so happy with the customer service. I worked with Kayte on both of my two appointments. Kayte was very quick to intuit that I was interested in a more laid-back vibe and engaged with me accordingly, including when I found my dress. She understood my style and was incredibly helpful in pulling dresses for me to consider and also in offering me her honest opinion when I solicited it. If you're looking at dresses, you should absolutely prioritize a visit to Serendipity!

Kayte let me pick out some and after she could tell what style i was going for she was able to pull a few too, and walk the store with me to help until i found the perfect one.

Great selection of gowns at reasonable prices, great lighting, lots of space for people like me who have posses with them for any bridal events, and that had great champagne too. Overall a fabulous experience and I’m so glad I held out till the end of the day for them. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!

I had a very difficult time trying on wedding dresses... it was one pretty white dress after one pretty white dress. That is until I met Kayte at Serendipity Bridal! She is absolutely and so good at what she does. She made me feel incredibly comfortable and listened to me like... Read More no other bridal shop had. And I had a not so 'blissful' experience at another shop. Kayte picked the perfect dress, like it was made just for me. She never made me feel rushed or like I was a pain in the a** and actually made me feel like a blushing bride is supposed to. I can't thank her or the rest of the staff enough for such a fantastic and seamless experience at Serendipity Bridal! I would absolutely recommend Serendipity to every newly engaged gal in the south/central Texas area!

I went to 2 boutiques, but this one was excellent.

In addition, she went out of her way to keep the shop open for...

I will definitely be suggesting their shop to all my friends/acquaintances in the future!

Loved this little boutique. This was the first wedding shop that I went to and didn't know what to expect. I was super nervous that I would be persuaded into buying something super expensive and not what I wanted but the total opposite happened. My experience was great, no... Read More pressure for a sale at all, total focus on making the bride to be happy. I was able to look around on my own and choose the dresses I wanted to try on. Every dress had a price tag on it so there was no falling in love with something I would never be able to afford. My favorite color is pink and the moment I saw a blush dress hanging on the rack I knew it was destined to be! If you want a variety of styles and designers this is the shop for you!

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!
