This place deserves a five star rating. Not only was the staff so helpful and encouraging they were patient throughout The whole process. You would think it was their family member getting married. They also have the best seamstress. And she is amazing she totally... Read More transformed my daughter's wedding gown. Not just once but several times. She was also extremely patient and encouraging throughout each transformation. She always said she wanted the bride to be happy. There Is no one like her. She took a strapless lace dress and added appliqués to make A dress with straps . Everyone thought the dress came like that it was done so perfectly. She also transformed the bodice. And as my daughter lost weight she constantly made adjustments for her. If you want a wonderful wedding experience this your shop. They will treat you as if this is their day

Bridal world was amazing! From the moment I found my dress to the time I was ready to take my dress home, I felt like they had become a part of my family and wedding!! That's how wonderful the staff is and how welcoming and helpful they are. I found "the one" at bridal world....

The dress didn't come with straps but we were able to order extra lace from the bottom of my dress and the seamstress at bridal world made me the most amazing lace cap sleeves that really made the dress unique and perfect! Absolutely beautiful! I highly reccomend bridal world to any brides that are looking for a beautiful wedding dress with great service. They made me feel beautiful and never once did I feel pressured into buying anything like at other bridal stores. I felt at home here! Thank you so much bridal world for the best experience ever!

It was late in the day and we had no appt. but we were greeted by Ronnie owner of the shop as though she had been expecting us all along ...She introduced us to Stephanie who said "lets find you a dress" She got Melissa into a fitting room and 5 or 6 dresses later she found THE ONE !!! Wanting to be 100% sure Melissa said she would like to think it over for a few days and bring back her girls ....There was zero "sales pressure" they totally understood and made a 2nd appt for us . We went back on 9/17/17 Melissa got back into the dress she loved and within minutes everyone knew this was the one & Melissa said YES TO THE DRESS !! Oh how I wish we had gone here first it would have saved my daughter weeks of stress ! this is a magical time for all brides and this step in the process should be fun and happy !!! Ronnie & Stephanie know this "business" but don't make it feel like "business" rather time with friends !!! I would give this shop 10 stars if I could ...I can't wait to continue this journey knowing my daughters dream dress is in such capable hands ! THANK YOU BRIDAL WORLD

My mother, sister and I were hanging out one Saturday and we decided to look for dresses, styles, etc. We had no intention to buy my dress so far in advance however, we were pleasantly wrong! We were met by Paulette, the saleswoman. Paulette was warm and showed a genuine... Read More interest in the style/ vision I had for my wedding day. She pulled a dress and I tried it on. Immediately, I knew it was the dress for me. (I know it sounds cliche) Despite me knowing I tried on only two other dresses. Paulette was attentive and extremely knowledgeable. I decided to purchase the first dress. Eleven months after I came in for my dress fitting. We met Francois, the seamstress. Francois, like Paulette was amazing! I can't begin to explain how doting she was. She made the most amazing bustle. Francois, assisted me by dressing me the day of the wedding. People just don't do lovely things like that!  I highly recommend this place. The owner also is amazing, she ordered a dress for my mother. I was beyond satisfied by this place and know that my sister will probably get her dress from the Bridal World as well!

By far the worst experience I had while dress shopping. I initially called to ask if they had a specific dress in stock, and the girl on the phone was extremely nice and after getting a good feel for my style she insisted I should come in because they had "similar dresses". My... Read More appointment was at 11 am and I called no less than 5 times before arriving to confirm my appointment, and no one answered. I arrived at 10:58 and the store was dark and closed, and at 10:59 a woman arrived and asked if we had an appointment. I replied yes at 11 and she rolled her eyes and said "well its just about 11" as if I was a bother to her schedule. Upon arriving and filling out paperwork, another woman walked in in a panic because her daughter's veil was missing. It was not in the bag with the dress, and apparently there was no record of the purchase. Not only did the saleswoman completely abandon us to cater to the walk-in, but she was just as useless to help her replacing the veil. When she finally found the time to service us I told her about my encounter on the phone and showed her pictures of what I was looking for. She was very dismissive and essentially told me that they had nothing in my style at all and didn't bother to show me any dresses. This store seems to be significantly dysfunctional. The sales associates clearly don't understand what a bride is looking for, they do not keep accurate records, they do not care enough about the business to arrive before the first appointment, and they are overall rude and dismissive. Not exactly what a bride is looking for when trying to find her wedding dress. I highly recommend avoiding this vendor, there is no shortage of wedding salons in New York.

And the seamstress, Hannah, is a magician. The dress had to be ordered in a 6, even though my top would have fit in a size 0. So Hannah worked her magic, despite the extensive lacework and beading on the top, and you could not even tell that anything had been done to the dress! She also put the bustle in for my train, and it did not rip the whole day. It was the most secure bustle I had ever seen. Well worth every penny!
