Becca at Vera's was simply the cutest and best! I had a large group with me and she handled all the comments and disappointments very well! She understood my style after 3 dresses. I did end up buying a dress that was over my budget but I was between two dresses, one in my... Read More budget, and one over my budget. And Becca never pushed me either direction. She just listened. And the only reason she brought dresses that were over my budget into the room was because my mom was curious if we went above budget what we would be able to see verses on the budget. I thought she did an amazing job. She even made me cry by making me imagine walking down the isle. It was truly an amazing experience. I didn't think I would love the day so much but Becca made it memorable! Thank you Vera's!

I have mixed feelings about my appointment at Vera's. There were definitely some positives, including very knowledgable staff and a huge inventory. However, there were several things that I had a major problem with. 1. Every dress they brought me was at the very top of my... Read More budget (which is at their median price point). My style is fairly simple, with no beading or extravagant (aka expensive) details, and yet every dress they brought in was right at the top of my budget, despite the fact that they claim to have "plenty of dresses in my style within my budget." It felt like they cared more about getting me right at my top price point than they did about finding something I would love. 2. This was my very first appointment, so I made it clear at the beginning of the appointment that I would not be ready to make a final decision that day. I said that if I found something I really loved, I would still want to go home and sleep on it. Towards the end of my appointment, I found one that I did love, and my consultant gave me a hard sell. I said I wasn't ready to make a decision, but she kept pushing me to talk about how much I loved it and then brought up discounts that I would receive for making a decision on the spot. It felt very pushy and once again, it was a dress that was at the top of my price point. I held my ground and left empty handed and I'm glad I did because the next day I looked at pictures of me in the dress and felt it wasn't as amazing as I had remembered. It made me upset to think that they tried to persuade me into a large purchase in an emotional moment. 3. They don't reveal who the designer is unless you make the purchase. They do this so that you can't look it up later to find it elsewhere. I didn't think much of it at the time, but after leaving the store and hearing from other people about their bridal shop experiences, I realized that this is NOT the industry standard. Transparency with your customers should be more of a priority. I ended up buying my dress at a different store, where they basically did the opposite of everything listed above. I had a much better experience, felt valued, and purchased my dress. I would caution anyone looking to shop at Vera's to be direct about your wants and prepared for them to be pushy.

Vera's was phenomenal. I had a very large group (12 including me) and at first the largest room they had was in use, but at least 4 people came in and told us as soon as they were done we could move over.

It was a 90°+ day and the staff (including Vera herself) was sure to continue checking on us, bringing fans, bottles of water, whatever we needed. Claire was my consultant and she was WONDERFUL. She really paid attention to what the details on each dress she pulled for me I was liking and what I was disliking. It was my first time ever trying on any sort of formal gown so I was very scatterbrained. She was sure to give me variety while keeping in mind my budget and what I was liking/not liking from previous dresses. I ended up falling in love with a dress I NEVER would have expected myself to end up with. I couldn't be happier with it and Claire was incredibly helpful informing me of what to all expect during the coming months after ordering my dress. I would absolutely recommend Vera's to anyone. The price ranges, selection, and service were unbeatable. So happy to be a Vera's Bride!
