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!

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... Read More 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... 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.

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.... Read More 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 had a horrible experience with bridesmaid dresses at the Wedding Shoppe and would NOT recommend to ANYONE I cared about. They were not professional and really seemed like they didn't know what they were doing from start to finish. Every person we spoke to gave us different... Read More information, they were constantly asking my bridesmaids to come in to the store for no reason, they ordered the wrong size of dress (which they measured), sent the dresses out so late that they were unable to order a new dress or even get extra material to take it out, and then tried to blame me for the time frame in which the dresses were initially ordered (which was the exact due date they had given me to begin with)! Overall, this was a stressful and unpleasant experience I wouldn't wish on anyone.

After looking forward to my appointment for days, I was greatly disappointed with the service and selection offered by the Wedding Shop. My mom and I drove three hours, endured rush hour traffic, and booked a hotel room in order to enjoy an afternoon of wedding dress shopping.... Read More Upon arrival to the Wedding Shop we were not greeted for several minutes despite the empty store room. We immediately felt unwelcome and like we were a nuisance. After several minutes we were escorted to a small room with plastic chairs and shower curtain dividers. Our stylist explained that brides did not get to peruse the racks of dresses and that instead she would pull dresses for us and help me try them on. We discussed the style I was looking for and my budget and she brought up four dresses. I tried on three of the four dresses, and felt that they were close to what I was looking for, but not quite right. My mom stated that she did not like the silver stitching on one of the dresses and the stylist snapped, "I didn't design the dresses. It doesn't offend me if you hate them." The stylist returned with two more dresses that were not at all the style I had explained I was looking for. I asked if after getting to know me and getting to know my style she could pull a few more "fit and flare" dresses for me to try. She replied, "there aren't any more in your price range." I felt this was inappropriate and offensive comment- my budget was 2,000$ and I had not expressed that it was an inflexible budget. I had 45 min left of my appointment and I felt uncomfortable and rushed. I felt like I was a nuisance instead of a bride deserving of an individualized, special wedding dress shopping experience. My experience at the Wedding Shoppe was extremely impersonal, disappointing, and uncomfortable.
