Great service, awesome shopping experience.

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 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... Read More 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.

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... Read More 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.

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.

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 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... Read More 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 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.

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.
