If I could rate this any higher I would! My first (and only) dress fitting was amazing from beginning to end. I was terrified to go dress shopping because I am a plus sized bride but I didn't feel that way for a second. The choices were stunning, in my price range, and they fit... Read More beautifully. My bridal consultant, Deana, was patient and we tried dresses on multiple times before we made the final decision and said Yes to the Dress.

I unfortunately did not have a very good experience here. I purchased my dress out of state and brought it here to have it steamed prior to my wedding. When I arrived to pick my dress up, they shoved the large tulle skirt into a very small zipped garment bag which crushed the... Read More tulle and put more wrinkles in it than before I'd brought it in. They did re-steam the dress for free, and put it back in its original bag, but it seemed entirely unprofessional to me for them to crush my large tulle skirt into a small garment bag in the first place. They also stuffed the bust with tissue paper after steaming the dress, I did not bring it to them like this, and it caused the top of my dress to gap on my wedding day-I am very small chested and it had fit perfectly before. While I'm sure their dress selection and services are wonderful, I would go elsewhere for alterations and steaming services.

Excellent excellent excellent! I’m a girl who loves bling but was on a budget. I went to many other bridal salons and wasn’t shown what I wanted. The Dress Matters showed me so many options. The dress was perfect and not astronomical in price. People gave me so many compliments.... Read More I highly recommend working with their seamstress Mehtap as well.

Great options! Although I think they need to come up with A/C when it's the summer and a bigger viewing space to see yourself in the dress - it was a pretty small room with a smallish mirror.
