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.
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.
I went to 4 different bridal shops to find the perfect dress and the wedding shoppe was the best by far! Stephanie helped me find my wedding dress and she was so sweet and helpful. She stayed within my budget and listened to my needs but also suggested some options that I really liked! Thank you wedding shoppe for helping me find my perfect wedding dress at a great price!
If I could leave zero stars I would. I nearly left here in tears! The consultant was awful. First, the room I was in had a curtain to separate my helpers while I changed, but the consultant did not use it and didn't ask if I was comfortable with that and I was forced to change in front of everyone I brought with me. I explained what I wanted and she brought in several gowns. I was not pleased with the initial picks, and gave feedback. 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 got my wedding dress and our bridesmaids dresses at the Wedding Shoppe. Although they are usually very busy, we had pleasant experiences and found dresses we loved!
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 sizes too big, and then when they tried to return for a smaller size the return policy was ridiculous. 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. It shouldn't be that difficult to get the size right, or to have a normal return policy.
I used the Wedding Shoppe for some of our bridesmaids dresses. I had no idea before planning our own wedding how difficult finding bridesmaids dresses would be! I felt this was even harder than finding my own bridal gown! I had picked a specific color for our wedding party and then searched online for dress designers that made dresses in that color, then search local bridal shops that carried those designers that had dresses I liked. The Wedding Shoppe was the one that carries the largest selection of designers and carried all of the designers I was looking for. I thought I had found a one stop shop! I met with Krishy who was really great to work with. She helped me narrow down my choices and ultimately selecting the final 3 dress styles for our wedding. She was super helpful! I had then given them all the details for our bridesmaids who would now be ready to com in get fitted and order. I then got a call a couple days later, saying that 1 of the designer dresses I picked out, they could no longer order. That they chose not to represent the designers fall line, and couldn't order this dress. This was really disappointing after I already had everything set up and now had desiccated on this dress, so I now had to find another dress shop that carried this designer. We ended up ordering a couple of our other bride minds dresses from The Wedding Shoppe, but did have to go elsewhere for the others. I would however recommend the Wedding Shoppe as a good option to shop for your bridesmaids dresses.
I had gone to 2 other wedding retailers and the wedding shoppe was the best!! The girl who helped me was so great after I told her what I was looking for she helped me find the perfect dress. I felt like a princess in it!
My overall experience here was so-so. It was my first time trying on wedding dresses ever so going into the shoppe I knew I wanted to try on multiple styles to figure out what I liked best. My consultant was nice, but seemed annoyed that I wanted to grab multiple dress styles. They also do not let you browse there dresses, they pick out what they think you'll like. The whole time I felt like "what if she is walking right past my dream dress!?! can't I look!?" I ended up finding a dress at the end that I did really like but I didn't get that feeling about. We were running out of time and the consultant basically told me "we have the biggest selection of gowns in the twin cities so this is probably the gown for you" didn't seem to care how I was feeling and then proceeded to tell me the style I liked which is A-Line gowns were "super rare" like !?!?!?! ok. sure. I did not purchase my dress from here and happily found my dream gown 3 days later at Raffine Bridal!
I loved my dress shopping experience at the Wedding Shoppe. My consultant immediately “got” me and came back with dresses that we both knew would look best on me. This was my first place trying on any dresses and I tried on less than 10 total, going back to the 3rd one I had tried on initially. They were so patient, making sure the whole look was perfect for me to be able to say yes to the dress! We added a belt, hair piece and veil at my very first appointment. And the belt and veil made the whole look and are the ones I ended up choosing. The Wedding Shoppe has such a great selection of designer dresses, but still feels like a very intimate experience. I also got my bridesmaids dresses from the Wedding Shoppe about a month after I picked out my own dress. They also have a great selection of these and wonderful consultants to help. They whole customer service team was very helpful in navigating my out of state bridesmaids getting everything ordered. Love my dress!!!
