As the bride, it was important to me that my mom have a special experience finding her dress for my wedding. Helen did just that for her! Here's my mom's review of her experience "As the mother of the bride I more so needed to find a fantastic dress given that I’d be walking my daughter down the aisle. I had a specific style in mind and my daughter and I spent countless hours searching for the perfect gown. The five previous shops I had been to only presented me with styles that were too “matronly” or offered no selection at all. Finally, I happened upon Uniquely Couture Bridal in Bedford, NH. Helen spent a lot of time with me, first becoming familiar with my style, my likes and dislikes; my overall personality. She was honest with her opinions, respected mine, and did not try to push or sell anything. Her gentle, patient nature guided me a bit past my comfort zone, proving that I could actually pull of some styles I thought, at my age, were out of my reach. Helen is no doubt a confidence booster and, ultimately, helped me choose the perfect gown that I feel comfortable and pretty in. The bonus is, I feel like I’ve made a new friend. I highly recommend Uniquely Couture Bridal."
I can not say enough good things about Uniquely Couture Bridal and Jill! I only had a little over 2 months to do everything for my wedding and Jill was able to help me find the perfect dress, veil, all my bridesmaids dress and all my guys suits! She was able to rush order everything at a very reasonable price and everything came in with plenty of time and all sizes true to what we had ordered. Jill made this experience so fun for me and with as little stress as possible! I would recommend them to anyone, Jill truly did go above and beyond for us! Jill even went as far as keeping tracking of all my bridesmaids and groomsman to make sure they had ordered there stuff in time and following up with me. She was a savior for me!
Shannon was awesome, super patient and very passionate about her job. My husband came back because of her superior service with me to rent a tux. When he pulled out the vintage 70's shoes. She smiled and said they were awesome and helped him find the perfect tux to highlight the shoes. The icing on the cake was the beautiful tiara she helped me find. Our overall experience with the Uniquely Couture staff was phenomenal. Thank you for taking the stress out of our special day. Jane and Lance
I cannot say enough about this bridal salon! Helen the owner helped me every step of the way. I was dreading to go shopping for my dress as it’s a tedious process. Helen and her staff went above and beyond with helping me choose the perfect wedding dress.
Unfortunately from beginning to end the only positive result from dealing with Uniquely Couture Bridal and the owner Elaine was getting my dream dress. However, there were so many negative interactions that took place over 7-8 months; it’s hard to list them all. The first day I arrived at the boutique to try on my wedding dresses I had the owner Elaine as my consultant. During the whole interaction, I was pressured to look at dresses that were part of the “trunk show” and not the designer I wanted. I want to make a point that when I scheduled my appointment for that day, I was not told a trunk show was even taking place. While trying on dresses from designers I wasn’t interested in and after multiple negative comments from Elaine, including “Oh I am surprised that dress even fit you!” I became frustrated and adamant about trying on the designer that I wanted. Fortunately, once I finally started trying on dresses from the designer that I wanted, I found the dress and all was well. Unfortunately it didn’t stay that way. Lack of communication was the next hurdle. I found my dress in January 2017 and was told the expected arrival date would be June 2017. However, June was coming to an end and I hadn’t heard from anyone to set up my alteration appointments. I decided to give them a call. Apparently the first delay with my dress was the lace being back ordered and then it was stuck in customs over seas. However I was never updated on any of this. I had to make many phone calls over the next couple of weeks to get an update on any new information about my dress. I was told they would remain in contact with me, however they didn’t. My dress finally arrived July 25. My wedding was in less than a month and it was beyond crunch time. Since the dress arrived a lot later than expected, the owner stated she would be the one to complete my dress alterations herself instead of sending it out to local vendors because “it wouldn’t be ready in time”. Which I was extremely appreciative of at first however, that was the next nightmare. At first she told me that my dress was going to be her main priority. However, trying to get my alterations fitted to what my body needed was a hassle. I had to tell her over and over that the alterations for my chest was too big, convince her to take in more at my waste and tell her that I needed to have more than one alteration appointment when she told me that she would only have time for one “if she could finish in time”. I understand that she had other customers, but when she said that I was to be her priority, the bride does not want to hear that the dress may not be ready in time and or that she may only get one fitting for alterations. When I became overall frustrated with the situation I contacted Elaine via telephone about what is the best option for me. Should I continue with her completing the alterations or find a local vendor. The phone call that I had with Elaine was rude, unprofessional and beyond frustrating. Elaine kept repeating that she was “doing us the favor and if we were unhappy with it we could pick up the dress and take it somewhere else”. When asked about the financial aspect of us paying for the alterations completed, she remained silent. Not to sound ungrateful, but do not think for a second charging us a total of $550 for alterations is doing us a favor, when Elaine took this project into her hands on her own. I am beyond happy with the dress, but would not in one second recommend.
I was very impressed with my overall experience! Jill is absolutely amazing ! I wouldn't want to deal with anyone else!
I had a horrible experience with UCB! Ian 3,000 miles away from my family so I trusted the women at the shop to help me. The women assured me I was a size zero even though I was adamant that I am typically a size 2. Being that I was there alone, it's definitely my first time buying a dress, and that it is their job to know these things, I went with the size zero. I am a small person and I now look like a sausage stuffed into a case. On top of that, the dress is way too short and I cannot even wear heels on my wedding day. I trusted these women to help me and now after alterations attempted to save the dress, it doesn't look anything like the dress I originally loved and ordered. I do not recommend this store, the women, or their services. I am always kind to people in customer service but if I would have stuck up for myself I would have a dress that fits. Horrible experience!
At first we had a wonderful experience picking out 4 bridesmaids dresses, a mother of the bride dress, a rehearsal dinner dress, a veil, and a hair piece. We had a lot of money invested in this shop. The bridesmaids dresses came in 3 months late! Good thing we shopped early! Then the dresses came in and 5/6 dresses didn't fit at all! They were all too small to where they wouldn't zip because it was too tight in the ribs. There is no way all 5 girls gained weight in the same area of their bodies! After contacting Jill, we reached no solution, she would not help pay for any of the alterations after she measured or ordered incorrectly. Overall, a good experience quickly went horribly wrong, I would not recommend shopping here
I had the hardest time finding my wedding dress and went to several different shops before going to a trunk sale at Uniquely Couture after seeing them at a bridal expo. I went with my mom and maid of honor and the girls were all so hospitable, helping us from start to finish until I found the perfect one. The owner even stayed behind after her shift to see me choose! We went back many times for bridesmaid dress shopping and mother dress shopping (though we didn't end up getting the mothers anything there). Jill, one of the managers, was a godsend for the whole process! She even called me to give updates on the bridesmaid dresses being ordered and coming in. She was always so nice and helpful.
I had the BEST experience at Uniquely Couture with Madeline! She was so sweet and helpful! You have to make an appointment and you have a salesperson dedicated to JUST YOU to help you find your dream gown! My dress was absolutely stunning; took my breath away when I tried it on and I just knew it was the one. I even went to another shop (had a horrible experience) and went back because that was the dress for me! I received so many compliments on it on my wedding day- from both guests and vendors! It was so stunning someone even thought I had lights on it! They offer a cleaning service as well and mine is currently out to be cleaned and takes about 8 weeks! It cost less than I thought it would! I could not be happier with my wedding gown and I am already planning a 1 year anniversary shoot! I cannot wait to wear it again!
I cannot thank UCB enough for my gorgeous Ian Stuart dress. I loved it so so so much and it was so fun to wear. The salon is amazing and their professionalism and knowledge are unmatched in this industry. If you are looking for top notch service visit this salon! You won't be disappointed.
I cannot say enough about my wonderful experience at Uniquely Couture Bridal! My biggest regret is that I stumbled upon this salon after I had purchased my wedding dress. Do NOT make the same mistake and make sure to visit this store which is bright, beautiful and very inviting. Although I didn't purchase my dress here, I did purchase everything else including the bridesmaid dresses, tuxes, mother of the bride dress, my veil and other accessories! Jill was amazing in helping me make all the decisions for everything – I honestly could not have done it without her. At the end of it all, it felt as though I was working with a friend who I had known forever! She was genuine, honest, and never pushy. There was a period of time where it felt like I was visiting Uniquely Couture weekly and each time I showed up, I was welcomed by first name. It doesn't get any better than that! The groomsmen were all thankful that the fitting for the tuxes was quick and efficient. I truly cannot say enough about it! I am so thankful that I went to visit Uniquely Couture! Trust me, you won’t regret setting up an appointment here!
I HIGHLY recommend Uniquely Couture for your wedding! Jill was amazing to work with. I had an idea of a type of dress I wanted and I tried on quite a few and none of them happened to be "THE one". Jill pulled out a completely different style of dress that she thought would look good on me. This Pronovius dress immediately brought my mother and I to tears because it was PERFECT. She helped me figure out all of the accessories and made everything go seamlessly. My mother got her dress there, which was stunning. We also got our gorgeous Sorella Vita bridesmaids dresses there! The dress selection overall was of higher quality than any other shop I had been to. There store is not overwhelming like some are! Don't make the mistake of going anywhere else!
I had the best experience with uniquely couture! Jill, specifically, was amazing! She did a fantastic job helping me pick the perfect bridesmaid dresses and even went above and beyond to help customize them if I wanted! I highly recommend!
AMAZING...in so many ways! Uniquely Couture really wasn't on my list to go to. I called them last minute on a Saturday for an appointment after a not so satisfying appointment at another bridal salon. Jill got me right in. I found 4 dresses I loved that day! 4!!!! Jill was so so fun and so so patient with me. I am not good at making decisions. Especially big decisions. I went back to the store 3 times before finally deciding on a gorgeous and very very unique Pronovias dress. My dress arrived at the store during the time frame they gave me, and they even took the dress back after alterations and right before the wedding for a free final steam. I even had a veil emergency 2 weeks before the wedding. I was supposed to get a veil from a family member, but it fell through last minute. I ran over to the salon in a panic during my lunch break, and while I was in my...omg I'm going to pull my hair out from all of this wedding stress state...and was able to buy one off of the rack. I would absolutely recommend Uniquely Couture.
I purchased my dress here in November of 2015. I had previously checked out another shop that was completely lacking in options and customer service. I received an email letting me know about Uniquely Couture's Pronovia Trunk Show and decided to check it out. I tried on about 7 or 8 dresses, with Maddy's help. She was absolutely phenomenal to work with. Very kind and genuine. She was extremely helpful and seem to give her honest opinion (which I truly appreciated hearing from a stranger. I know a lot of people deal with negativity from their family, but mine was all "EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD!" Not helpful lol) When I went back to check out bridesmaids dresses with my maids, the owner was there and she was less than friendly. I was a little disappointed because I had talked this place up based on how amazing Madison had treated me, only to be let down when dealing with the owner... This shop still had the best selection of dresses, the best and most personal fitting room area. I loved the big mirrors and stage for checking out the dresses. It really made a world of a difference. Much more personal of an experience than some other place I won't mention... I would've given this place 5 stars, but as I said, the owner was a little less-than, and I've since been informed Madison no longer works there. Such a bummer because she really sold the place for me, and especially the dress and veil.
Amazing experience when shopping here. Jill was great helping me go through the process and patient as I tried on multiple dresses. Great selection of choices as well. Ended up finding my dress and Jill even called to find out if changes that I wanted could be made to it, which luckily I could. Decided to get my bridesmaid dresses there as well and again Jill was extremely helpful. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend checking out this salon!
I loved everything about Uniquely Couture! The shop is beautiful! I met and worked with Jill - she is AMAZING! Jill was so patient and sweet. I was not really looking forward to dress shopping but she made the experience truly memorable and I did find the perfect dress, thanks to her expertise! This was my first day dress shopping, at first I was afraid to commit without trying on more dresses, but I knew I wouldn't find someone as special as Jill to work with anywhere else! She is a jem!! Thank you Uniquely Couture and Jill - I would HIGHLY recommend visiting them, you will not be disappointed.
I recently started (and finished) my wedding dress search. I started at UCB because I had met Jill while doing bridesmaid's dresses for my best friend's wedding last fall. Jill knew exactly what to pick for me, and after trying several dresses on at 2 other shops, I returned to UCB. The dress made mom cry so I knew it was the one! Jill was quick with measurements and so professional. She is great at what she does and so easy to work with. Now I have to wait to get the dress (patience) but the hard part is done (which was made a lot easier with her help!)!
As a plus size woman the idea of dress shopping was quite dreadful, but as soon as I walked in I was warmly greeted and shown array of options I could actually fit in. I was extremely impressed with the selection and the kindness of the staff there. I would highly recommend this place.
Beautiful Gown!!!Reviewed on 1/05/2016 Aimee M
Uniquely Couture offered the most beautiful gowns I had seen in my search for the perfect dress. They had a huge selection of high-quality designer gowns at a price that was within my budget. A majority of the dresses reflected the style and look I was trying to achieve- lots of lacework and intricate details. The customer service was awesome! From the first appointment to picking up my dress, the staff were so helpful and kind!
Only recommend to people with HIGH budgets. I did not have the greatest experience here. I felt a bit like the lead character in Pretty Woman where she was "too poor" to be there. The woman I dealt with was nice, but to an extent. Upon telling her my budget, I was immediately very limited and there were only about 3 total dresses in my size in my price range. I was somewhat looked down upon for my budget and was pushed into doing or choosing things I didn't want to do or choose. The woman was a bit stuffy and arrogant; certainly not down-to-earth and ready to really help achieve what I wanted. I only recommend this place to those with A LOT of money and almost no budget. But for those of us who don't feel spending tons of money on a dress you'll wear once, don't come here. They seem to cater only to the wealthy, not the thrifty bride.
This shop is a MUST VISIT. I took my daughter everywhere within a 60 mile radius for THE dress .. After trying gown after gown, nothing really clicked and after a while, they were all starting to look the same. I wanted her to be in love with her dress! I knew there was a stone still left unturned.. after searching for more designers, I found British designer Ian Stuart and Uniquely Couture was the closest retailer. This was the designer we were looking for. Giddy with excitement and anticipation, we made the three hour drive on a snowy winter day.. We knew her dress was there. My daughter walked in and saw her dress on the mannequin. She tried on other dresses but the first one she saw was the one she kept going back to. Classic Ian Stuart.. stunning.. she got married this past weekend and (totally unbiased opinion alert) she looked like a princess! :) We could not be happier with the selection of spectacular dresses that you just won't find anywhere else.. They also had other lines that we hadn't seen anywhere else. The service was second to none. Jill was our consultant. A beautiful young woman inside and out. So patient and very accommodating. Although they don't have in house alterations, Jill recommended Diana (who is about 5 minutes away from the shop) as being "the best of the best". Diana definitely lives up to her reputation. Their name says it all.. They really are "uniquely couture" in every possible way.. from the selection, to the immaculate ambiance, and the wonderful staff. If I could give them a 10 star rating, I would have in a heartbeat.. Yes, it is that special of an experience from start to finish.

This salon is beautiful!! I had gone to two other salons before going to this one & I wish I had gone here first! Julie was very helpful, I never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision, I actually went back twice until I made my final decision. I paid more than I was planning on, but I am over the top happy with my purchase & experience with them.
Jill is amazing!!!!!!! She was incredibly sweet and really allowed me to find what I liked and listened to me. She was really helpful in finding matching accessories! She really made it special time for me and my family! Their salon is very open and pretty! The owner was also there and everyone really was excited for me! Even though they see brides all the time they are genuinely happy for you and really want to find you an amazing dress!
