We went there a few months ago, but I have been very busy so I'm finally writing my review now. Gina was amazing! She gave us wonderful customer service. She listened well to the whole family giving their ideas for the dress, but most importantly paid attention to my sister, the... Read More bride and focused on what she was looking for. My sister found the exact dress she was looking for and we bought it right then. We went to a few shops in the area and this by far is the best. The store is very pretty, great dress selection, and great overall experience. Thank you Gina!

Beautiful Dress But No Alterations

Reviewed on 9/25/2015 Jennifer L

I got my wedding dress from Victoria's Bridal Shoppe. An Allure Romance dress. The process of selecting my dress went smoothly, I was able to stop in the shop a few times to see the sample and try it on with accessories, and my dress came in a month early! But I do wish I could... Read More have gotten the alterations done at the shop. They need at least 3 months to do alterations, which is a lot. They didn't have a full time seamstress. I would suggest hiring someone full time and offering to do all alterations, even if they need to charge a rush fee. Another shop I tried dresses on at told me they would do alterations overnight if it came down to it, and that level of service would have really put my mind at ease. But the dress I wanted was at Victoria's so went with them. I also would suggest updating the shop just a bit to make the dressing rooms and shop fancier in order to make wedding dress shopping feel more special and luxurious. But all and all this is a great shop and I had no problems and would recommend them!

I was on a short timeline for my wedding so i needed to rush the wedding dress process.

The Dress of my Dreams on a Budget

Reviewed on 4/14/2014 Cristina G

After going to big box Wedding Dress shoppe and being told that my dream of an Elegant lace A-line dress with Straps a-la Kate Middleton for my Fall Rustic Chic wedding was unrealistic within my price range- I was disheartened that my dream wedding dress was unobtainable. I... Read More remembered that I went to Victoria’s with a Friend in search of her perfect dress, and instantly headed over. Lori @ Victoria’s Bridal listened to a description of my dream dress, and pulled 5 gorgeous styles for me to try on. The best thing was that after those dresses were finished she pulled a dress from back stock and it turned out to be MY DREAM DRESS- in my size.. I cannot even express my happiness and finding the perfect dress, and purchasing the store sample at a discounted rate. Highly recommend for those who are looking for elegant, conservative styles, such as with straps, illusion necklines..etc plenty to chose from. Also have gorgeous selection of other styles and prices to suit any budget

Not Open or Honest

Reviewed on 3/19/2014 Carriann S

I am rating my overall experience in purchasing a bridal gown a 1 out of 5 stars for the following reasons: Honesty and Openness: The owner of this shop, Lynn, places her own made up names on the tags inside private line dresses, which is fine, but then she tells her... Read More employees and brides that it is the actual name of the real private designer (not fine). "Private line" does not mean lie to the buyer, it means do not post pictures online. I ordered a private line dress, and when several other shop owners told me that my “designer” does not exist I naturally had questions and felt uneasy. Despite calling Victoria’s three times, and stopping in the store, they continued to give me dishonest answers. Later, I found out my dress’ actual designer logo name from an honest shop in Rochester, whom in hindsight I wish I could have given my business to. Professionalism: When the owner found out that I knew the real designer name, she called me at home and scolded me for not trusting her. She said that she “could not do business with someone when there is no trust,” and that “when my dress comes in, it will be the end of our transaction together.” This was her fault—I would have trusted her if what she told me was truth. Communication: When my dress did arrive, it was not the same as the sample gown that I tried on in her store and ordered. The boning inside the gown was 3x longer so that I could not even sit down, and there were changes to the inside brazier. She did not offer to fix these to be like her sample gown. If the designer makes changes to a gown, I would expect that the bridal store would communicate these changes with brides who have ordered the dress. Bridal Bags: When you pick up your bridal gown, they send it home in a thin, pink type of plastic garbage bag, rather than an actual garment bag—unlike most other bridal shops. I was appalled to watch them place my expensive gown a thin plastic garbage bag. Their lower quality garment bags can be purchased for $15, however.

Great quality and service!

I would recommend Victoria's to any bride shopping in the Western New York area. They have options for any budget and a great selection. Their onsite seamstress does great work.

Not Professional

Ordered all my bridesmaids dresses from here. I told them all my girls are from out of town and will need to call in their measurments. They assured me it was okay and they do it all the time. My girls spoke to the employee and stressed how they have never been that size in... Read More their life. They have been in weddings before and still never been that size! EX. one girl is a size 8-10 typically they suggested a size 20! she went with the 18 because she was nervous if she went smaller it wouldnt fit. We got the dresses late which i wouldnt care as long as everything worked out. After shipping them to all the girls myself no one fit into their dress. The girls would put the dresses on and they would fall right off!!!!! The tailor can only take in 2 size max so we are in a serious pickle 2 weeks before the wedding. I understand they went by the size chart given, but my girls told this woman how they are not that size and gave them their typical size. She insisted on these sizes and when i asked them to help with the issue they wouldnt do anything! All they can say is that these girls signed off on their sizes so nothing is on us. I am sorry but as a vendor you should know your brands and if they typically run large why would you suggest larger! I think the whole situation was unprofessional and they we not helpful at all! They do not care as long as they get paid. Go somewhere else!
