I just bought my gown from Something New, Borrowed, and Blue this past weekend. The customer service was amazing! I made an appointment and when I walked in the door my consultant was ready to greet me. She really wanted to hear what I was looking for and make sure I could stay... Read More in my budget. She was happy to let me try on as many dresses as I wanted and made the experience so great by trying on different belts and veils. I ended up going to a few more stores before coming back and realizing a dress I had tried on was my dress. When I came back my consultant was more than happy to help me again and didn't make me wait at all. They even gave me a free view! I would definitely recommend checking this store out!

Since I had time to kill before my next appointment, I decided to give this place a try. Didn't think I would come out with my dress. I got an amazing deal on it and could t be happier. Everyone was so friendly there. Definitely would recommend this place to a bride

The ladies at Something New Borrowed Blue were absolutely amazing! They weren't pushy on getting me into any dresses I didn't like, they stayed well within my budget, and made me feel beautiful in every dress that I tried on!

Was very disappointed after going here... My future sister in law had highly recommended it, so I was excited to see what they had to offer. We came in, in the middle of the week, right after the store opened with no appointment, (goal was fact gathering throughout several... Read More shops, not necessarily trying/buying dresses) we were scoffed at when I told her my budget and that we had no appointments, and were met with a "Well, good luck with that, none of the other shops can meet your budget and you won't be able to try anything on at any of the stores without an appointment". We were told that we would have to make an appointment to try anything on but we could peruse all we wanted. No one else was in the store so a little annoying but not a big deal. Made an appointment for later that afternoon and scoped out a few dresses to try on when we came back. We left and went to 3 other salons. After SNBB I was worried that they wouldn't be able help us because we did not have an appointment, and had a tight budget, BUT they ALL were so nice, helped picked out dresses, that were within budget and let me try on as many as I wanted. When we went back to SNBB at the time of my appointment, we were 30 min early but the store was still empty so we were able to be seen right away. Despite this I was told I could ONLY choose 3 dresses to try on. When I tried them on, none of them fit. Which under normal circumstances is frustrating but the consultant was rude and dismissive, making it worse. Mind you I was trying on the same sizes I had tried at the other 3 salons . Instead of offering help in finding dresses that would have a better fit, or offering any solutions whatsoever I got a "So are we done here?" Walked out after 10 minutes, and went straight back to European Bridal and bought a dress (off the rack!) I had tried on earlier in the day and was able to bring it home that day. Everyone has their off days, and it seems a lot of people had great experiences here, but I left feeling judged, and extremely frustrated. I hope it was just an off day, but it felt important to share my experience.

Amazing staff and the prices are quite good as well. Whenever you buy a wedding gown, the veil is included with the price. I also bought my rehearsal dress there the same day!

This is a great option for brides with a slightly smaller dress budget. Selections are a little more limited and you have to take it off the rack as-is (they're new dresses, but they don't order in different sizes, so for example if you love a dress and it's an 8, you're getting... Read More an 8). Luckily, I found a dress that fit me almost perfectly, but I did still have some expensive alterations to create the bustle, etc. But the staff was great, including the manager. I also love that they threw in my veil for free! Saved me probably $100 or more just in veil costs alone! I am slow at making decisions and like to sleep on things, and they encourage you to walk away with your dress that day or else it "might not be there anymore" so I did feel that pressure, but when the thought of someone else getting my dress made me queasy, I knew I had to get that one! Definitely work taking a trip to see what they have in store.

The consultants at this boutique were AMAZING! From the moment I arrived at my appointment, they respected my budget, and helped guide us through the dresses to hunt down the styles I liked. They were extremely knowledgeable on how the different dresses I tried on would be... Read More altered to fit my figure, and all of the dresses were in near perfect condition (especially for being an all sample sale store). The deals were real; I saw that same gown I got at another store for double what I paid at Something New, Borrowed & Blue. And the selection was huge!! I didn't have high expectations because I don't usually enjoy shopping, but I found three different dresses that I loved. The only stressful part was deciding between three perfect dresses. I can't see enough good things about them.

I found my dress at Something Borrow, Blue and New! It was the second dress that I tried on and I love it. The prices are great. There is not a lot of room for people to stand, so don't bring a large group with you if you shop here. It is also quite crowded when there are... Read More multiple appointments so we didn't get a very personal experience. Overall, I would recommend it but those are some things to keep in mind.
