Got My Dress and Then SomeReviewed on 4/20/2015 tiffany s
Great service, awesome shopping experience. I wasn't planning on doing any more than just browse, now we've gotten my dress, the tuxes, bridesmaids dresses, accessories and mob dress all at the Wedding Shoppe. Really is the one stop shop. I love my dress but wish I hadn't found it so quickly so I could have kept shopping - so fun and at such a fun, unique shop! Make an appointment, it's busy but only because it's the best place in town.
Best dressing are here
I went to the Wedding Shoppe on a Monday at 2 PM (scheduled an appointment) and spent about an hour and a half trying on dresses. The service was great and my personal attendant did a great job listening to what I was and wasn't interested in. I ended up purchasing a beautiful brand new dress of the rack which was great! I highly recommend The Wedding Shoppe due to the wide variety of dresses they have but I do recommend scheduling an appointment during the weekday versus going over the weekend to avoid the crowds.
Horrible service!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND!! we went to the Wedding shoppe to get all 7 of my Bridesmaids dresses on January 13th which was a complete nightmare. I had a scheduled appointment but when we got there, we waiting like 30- 45 minutes past our scheduled time and I had to constantly check at the front desk to see if someone could help us then finally someone came and her excuse was they were too busy. Then she took all 8 of us to a very small room upstairs which was hot and too small to fit all of us. The girl who helped us did not really tell me to check out the dresses and find a style I liked, instead she brought me some I might like so after everyone tried them on, we decided on the dress from the selection she provided, the girl who measured everyone quickly and then she constantly left us in the room alone for a long period of time and I had to go downstairs to find her at one point we waited for her for 45 minutes then we all decided to go downstairs and find her and leave as we were tired of waiting with no service. Also, the room was really hot and we were not even offered anything to drink the entire time we were there. Her only excuse was that again she was really busy, but no excuse as we had this appointment scheduled far in advance so they could make time for us. My bridesmaids purchased their dresses for order and then we all left disappointed due to the horrible experience and awful customer service. In early March, the dresses finally arrived, everyone was excited to get them and try them on, unfortunately, none of the dresses fit anyone, they were all very small! The girl did not accurately measure everyone correctly and my wedding was now only 2 weeks away and we now dont have any dresses and its now too late to re order. I explained the situation to the Manager and she was not very apologetic and said they have a strict return policy and basically blamed my Bridesmaids for ordering two sizes too small which was completely untrue and not their fault due as it was the responsibility of the girl who helped us to accurately measure everyone and let us know if the dress runs smaller which is why we have an appointment scheduled to begin with as they are suppose to be the experts and know this but instead they blame us the customers!!! I also spoke to the Owner and she said the same thing there was nothing they can do and blamed my Bridesmaids for ordering sizes too small which is not true and completely wrong! The did not take ownership or responsibility on their part for taking the wrong measurements and only said they can give us half of what we paid but we still had to pay the shipping charge so my bridesmaids only got 40% back of what they paid and they each paid about $200 for the dresses!! Never again! we got ripped off with no sincere apology and horrible customer service! This place is awful! Please don't go there, they will mess up everything and blame you and rip you off in the process! No customer service what so ever! They dont even deserve one star!
Extremely disappointed in the service we received at our appointment today. I had an appointment for my flower girl, and our consultant did nothing to help us. She didn't pull any dresses, she didn't measure the flower girl, and she didn't even offer to help with anything! At one point, she walked away from our party and was gone for around 15-20 minutes and we had no idea where she was. Very disappointed, and will not be returning.
The shop was so lovely. Exactly what I wanted it to be. Lauren stayed with us as long as we needed to find the right dress and I never wanted to take it off!
I really enjoyed my first visits to The Wedding Shoppe to find my wedding dress. The staff were wonderful and my dress was perfect. My only complaint is that for subsequent visits, to pick up my dress and to get bridesmaids dresses, the experience was not quite as stellar. It was a little bit of a letdown. Will still recommend the Wedding Shoppe for the variety of dresses they have.
I had an amazing experience buying my dress here! My consultant, Meg, was fabulous! She was attentive but not overbearing and had a great eye for the dresses that fit the look I was going for but also looked good on me. We started with a selection of 5 dresses and after hearing my feedback she brought in another group. The first one she had me try on of that group ended up being the one! I cannot day enough about how happy I am with this experience.
Out of the several stores I went to, the Wedding Shoppe really made me feel welcome and listened to. I found my perfect dress there with the amazing help from the stylists. I also got our bridesmaids dresses there. Everyone was so helpful and friendly and and made the experience stress-free :) I highly recommend the Wedding Shoppe!
I can’t say how amazing this place was to me. I wasn’t expecting all the great service I received. From the moment I walked in, to the consultant that helped me try on about thirty dresses. I can’t say enough great things about this place. They also have quite a lot of sales so anyone can afford it as well.
I started with the Wedding Shoppe and ended with the Wedding Shoppe. My first time here I was trying to figure out my style, and I had Senna who was a dream. Sweet, friendly, and was truly there to help me find a dress. She pulled out different gowns to help give me a full range to try on from their vast collection and didn’t pressure me or make me feel bad for not knowing what I was looking for right away. I went to 5 other bridal shops and I knew I needed to go back. The other shops didn’t compare and the entire time I was wishing the stylists were more hands on like my experience at the Wedding Shoppe. I’m not good at looking at something on a hanger and I didn’t care for sifting through the sea of dresses myself. At the Wedding Shoppe the stylists are able to pull dresses matching your needs versus you looking for them yourself. I went to the Wedding Shoppe this morning after going to four salons yesterday and it was the greatest decision I made. Amber was funny, outgoing, and a great listener to what you are looking for. Her kindness and joy was radiant which made my experience all the better. When I told her I found my dress I could feel how truly happy Amber and the staff were for me as a bride, not a sale. I can’t recommend the Wedding Shoppe enough! Thank you Senna for helping me narrow down what I wanted and Amber for finding THE dress. If a manager or owner is reading this I would give them a raise! 😉
I had a great experience. I am not a person who likes to shop, or try on clothes. I went to one other store and had a terrible experience. I got to the Wedding Shoppe and, honestly, didn't expect much. The woman who waited on me went over and above to make me feel comfortable. I gave her one designer I liked and she pulled similar styles based on that. I didn't try on many before I had narrowed it down. She then checked inventory and was able to make my gown a "sample" gown for over half the cost. I was done right then. We added a belt, and I was out the door. Great experience and customer service.
I had gone to the Wedding Shoppe due to their positive reputation in the community. Unfortunately, my experience did not live up to my expectations. While they were able to accommodate large groups (awesome!) and offer a quaint and intimate atmosphere, I was disappointed by the lack of dress selection I experienced. I brought several photos of dresses I liked, however they did not have any in the shop to try on. I was also disappointed that guests were unable to go into or pull dresses from the floor. I did not feel that my stylist was listening to my requests or able to find dresses based on my feedback or budget. I was able to go somewhere else where the stylist did not make comments about my budget or "unpopular" style tastes.
Great selection of wedding and bridesmaid dresses, helpful staff!
I found an amazing dress for a great price. When paying for your dress, makes sure they charge you the correct amount. It was a bit of a headache but I was finally able to get a refund on the overcharge.
The wedding shoppe was incredible! All of the employees were helpful and offered great suggestions. I went in, first time dress shopping, looking for a particular style and came out with something completely different. The attendant was extremely knowledgeable and helpful through it all which ultimately led me to saying yes to the dress! The only downside to this place is the parking. It's it or miss if you get a spot in their parking lot.
I had a great experience for both mine personal and my bridesmaids appointments! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything came in the right size too!
We had such a great experience at the Wedding Shoppe! We went in during the Grand Ole Days sample sale just to browse but ended up finding my dress almost immediately. The consultants were so nice and helped me pick out the perfect accessories to go with it. We came back for the bridesmaid dresses and had another great experience! Everything arrived on time as promised. One thing I would recommend to anyone, make an appointment especially if you go in on a Thursday night or on a weekend. They get very busy very fast and will do their best to squeeze you in but having an appointment is definitely helpful.
I was recommended to look for bridesmaid dresses here because of the wide selection. I ordered the bridesmaid dresses at the end of April for an October wedding. I received an email notification stating the dresses would be delivered to me by June 16th, but had not received the dresses by July 4th. Had to contact the shop multiple times to receive an answer as to why the dresses had not be delivered. The shop stated the dresses were back ordered, however I was able to contact the designer directly & was told all the dresses I ordered could be delivered overnight if I wanted. The shop stated they would not have looked into this order, at the earliest, until 2 months prior to the wedding. My maid of honors dress was 2 full sizes too large & the shop wanted HER TO PAY to order a smaller dress, when they are the ones that sized/fitted her. After being persistent she was able to get a smaller dress that fit correctly with very minimal time to have it altered. The ONLY recommendation that I will ever give about this place is TO NEVER EVER GO HERE.
I would highly recommend the Wedding Shoppe. I was able to purchase a very expensive and classy dress for 75% off through a sample sale. The lady helping me was very good at her job and found several dresses that I loved. In the end, I wanted to buy one and they negotiated the price so that I could get the perfect dress that fit my body shape. They were very kind, and good at what they do.
They helped me find the perfect dress during my first visit! I had pictures of what I liked but she brought in other options as well just to try on & I ended up falling in love with a dress I would have never picked myself!! So great full for her. I went on a Sunday & even though it was busy, I still got “royal” treatment!
I got my dress from the Wedding Shoppe last year, and had a great experience! First salon I went to, so I was nervous but my consultant made me feel really comfortable and helped me find my dress!
My dress was a Morilee and it was stunning. I told the gal while I was trying on dresses what I liked and that is what she brought to me. I had 6 people with me and when I stepped out in my dress they all cried! After that dress I tried on 3 more, just to see my options, but I kept going back to the one. It was an amazing shopping experience and I would recommend them to everyone.
I had the best experience here!!
Body shaming is real. No matter your size. Save yourself a trip and find another store. One that appreciates the curves of a woman, not shame you. I went in ready to buy an A-line skirt and was working closely with the designer (Dessy) to get the right fit. They told me natural waist was the most important sizing to take into considering when figuring out what size to buy. The Wedding Shoppe told me to buy a size that they were clipping me into at the waist because of my hip size. Apparently, there is a large discrepancy between my waist and hips and this was causing a lot of problems with The Wedding Shoppe. The skirt is designed with 1-2 inch extra in the hip area. Again, Dessy said: “The natural waist measurement takes priority in this style. If you are over by an inch or two on the hip, you should have enough room to release the side seams to allow for that variance.” My hips were a huge issue for the Store Manager. She suggests putting me into a dress that was smaller so I could see how it would fit on my hips. Remember, I’m buying an A-line skirt. She put me in a sheath dress. A form fitting, body con sheath dress. I was able to zip it up without a problem, wiggle, sit, the whole gamble without a problem. I felt great! The Store Manager, again, has a huge problem with my hips. She proceeded to lift up the dress and tell me that the dark color is hiding a lot of my flaws and that I was on the cusp of busting the seams. I was able to sit, wiggle, dance and zip it up without a problem AND I’m not buying a sheath dress, I’m buying an A-line skirt that flares away from the hip. After that appointment, I have never felt worse about my body. We already have a major problem in this society with body-shaming girls that have a different body type. Being a woman, I know how to dress my body and know what I’m comfortable in. It’s unfortunate to go to experts in the bridal field and have them have a bigger issue with your body than you do. I hope no one ever has to go through what I did. What was supposed to be an exciting part of my wedding journey has turned into a complete nightmare. A one-star review is generous in my opinion.
