Stephanie and her staff are the perfect combination of class and sweetness. You feel like you are in a high end store with very experienced stylists yet they are all so sweet and helpful.

I found Stephanie's after I found my gown at another store, but I loved her so much that I wanted to find something there. So I went shopping for my headband and my sash, and sure enough, she over-delivered. I absolutely loved my headband, and my sash was perfect. Thank you...

This was the first and only bridal boutique I went to when looking for my dress. I scheduled an appointment on Black Friday in the afternoon. It seemed a bit unorganized when we got there (I can understand - Black Friday craziness) but it was about half an hour after our... Read More scheduled appointment time before we were able to be helped and set up with a room. My mom had to go to work that afternoon and the appointment starting late almost kept her from seeing me try on dresses. It worked out in the end because I quickly found "The One!" but it made the experience a little more stressful. This is why I give 4 stars. The girl that took over my appointment was absolutely lovely. My mom, maid of honor, and bridesmaid with me all adored her too. I don't remember her name (she's small, tan skin, very long blonde curly hair) unfortunately. But she really helped make trying on dresses enjoyable rather than nerve wracking! As someone who is shy and self-conscious, trying on dresses was the best experience I could've imagined. She helped me feel confident which is definitely what a bride needs in such a vulnerable moment! I decided to use their 3rd party alteration services. Setting up an appointment was easy. I know the seamstress is a separate business but anyone using Stephanie's may choose to use this seamstress so I feel I should share my experience. This doesn't represent the overall rating! She's quite blunt and opinionated. I think she indirectly insulted me to my mom on two or three separate occasions, and I watched her do the same with the bride before me. I brush it off as a difference in personality or culture, but be forewarned if you're a sensitive or anxious person. The alterations were done on time, but I did feel like they were more expensive than quotes I've heard from other brides. Ask for quotes and shop around. :)

Shopping for your wedding dress can be emotional. For me, it was, as I lost my mom to cancer 4 years prior to me getting married. When I decided I was ready to start looking, I really wanted to get a Maggie Sottero dress and low and behold Stephanie's sells that designer. I... Read More booked my appointment and somehow the time I chose was double booked. Without even blinking they offered to open up early so my sister and I could have our appointment. Not expecting to find my dress on day one of looking we started and boom, Dress #2 was it! From the entire, attentive, sweet sales team to Elsa, the amazingly gifted seamstress, the women at Stephanie's Bridal Boutique made what could have been a sad, emotional time, a wonderful, exciting, happy memory. I will forever be grateful to them! And I ADORE my dress! I wish I could wear it everyday.

The boutique almost ruined my daughter's wedding....

Read More stores fault( no one measured my daughter at the time of purchase, a basic boutique 101 thing) not ours like she insisted, order another dress on rush in which is was late to, left us with 1 month before the wedding, we did not get alterations at Stephanie's there are better places out there that are reasonable and will let you pay by credit or debit card, not cash. They also kept the nice zip up bag the dress came in to give me a cheap pink dryer cleaner bag, paid $1200.00 for the dress. Very unorganized, to small, not enough seating for guest and just snooty folks

They are very rude people. They have blocked me from seeing if my review is even still on their page of my experience. The employee never measured me, ordered the dress that would fit my body size and then some. When the dress came in it was 10 SIZES TOO SMALL!! The owner...

I had proof from my doctors office that I had actually lost weight since the first appointment and the owner was still treating me with disrespect. The alterations lady is by far the rudest person I have ever met. She argued with my mother while I was almost in tears over the situation of my dress and my mother was simply trying to explain what I wanted. I would NEVER recommend this store to anyone.

Also, the owner was willing to let me buy one off the store front mannequin at a discount which was really nice (even though it didn't fit right in the end). I would suggest this place to anyone for a great shopping experience.

Wow, I love this place! Let me start by saying I'm from Michigan, and my sister lives in Kansas, so a friend and I traveled to KC to help her pick out a wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses. We booked appointments at four locations, with four different price levels, and very... Read More different selections, and this place excelled in every way. My friend and I have both worked in the bridal industry (she in a bridal gown salon, I in cosmetics) so we have a great feel for what's important, and also want that balance of service with just a touch of "I'll let you know when I need you to help me" and they were great at feeling us out and giving us just the right level of help without hovering. What really sets this place apart is the beautiful selection at completely reasonable price points. I don't think there was a dress in there priced over $1200, but there were so many unique, beautifully-made gowns that you would normally only find in an expensive boutique. We spoke at length with both the owner and several employees and learned that much of the purchasing is split between the owner and another long-term employee, each with very different personal styles, and this really shows. You see a great balance of beautiful, feminine, classic designs and some with just enough of an "edge" to be different. There was no other place in KC that had this selection at this affordable price point. And again, the quality looked and felt wonderful, not like the cheap feeling dresses you can find at that "chain" bridal store. The service was fantastic, the setting beautiful and comfortable, and the people friendly, honest, and real. I really can't say enough great things about this place. We ended up purchasing my sister's gown and 8 bridesmaid dresses and couldn't be happier about our selection. They really made what could have been a stressful purchase a joy.

Leading up to our purchase of the Boutique, I had stayed at home with our kids and loved every minute of it and being there for them, but this is something I didn’t know I was missing. Having a house of boys, it was my opportunity to finally have all things pretty, decorate girly, go to market and be able to kind of hone all my shopping into a career. My closest friend, Andi, has been with me since the beginning ~ For years leading up to our purchase I had really only dreamt of starting my own Bridal Boutique, so when we began to get girls in their ideal gown, it was a dream come true.
