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... Read More it so quickly so I could have kept shopping - so fun and at such a fun, unique shop!

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... Read More 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... Read More 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.

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... Read More 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.

If I could leave zero stars I would. I nearly left here in tears! The consultant was awful.

The second round was worst than the first. To be clear, I showed her about 20 gowns on my Pinterest page first. I think that the Shoppe didn't carry much in the style I wanted, which is absolutely okay, but instead of telling me that the consultant instead made me feel like no one makes what I wanted and that I should really start looking for something else. It was absolutely the least magical experience I could have imagined. I would also advise that if anyone in your party requires handicap accessibility that the Shoppe was not clear about what was available. I called a week in advance of my appointment and was not really given a clear picture. I did find a beautiful dress elsewhere that is exactly like what I was describing. They do make it, and I love it.

I bought my wedding dress here and absolutely love it. They have a great selection and the lady assisting me listened to what I actually wanted for my dress. The reason I'm only giving it two stars is the way they handle bridesmaid dresses. They sized almost every girl TWO...

If you want to exchange for a different size, you have to pay them for half of the dress AGAIN. Overall just terrible experience with the bridesmaid dresses.
