Wolsfelt's definitely has the best servicing! Their staff truly understands how nerve wrecking, hard, and important it is for the bride to make a decision on the dress. They were so helpful, patient, caring and understanding. I gave them a description of what I was looking for and next thing I know they had over 10 dresses ready for me to try on. Not only did they pull so many dresses for me to try on but they also brought matching belts and veils to go with the various dress styles. I was worried about not finding the "one" but it is almost impossible to not find your dress with them because they have so many styles and designs to choose from in stock. Their inventory is amazing. My mom and grandmother were running really late and arrived almost an hour after my appointment time, the staff member that was taking care of me was very patient and insisted that I keep the dress I had chosen on for them to see me when they got there. She was also sweet enough to let me try all the other dresses I had already tried on for them to see the options. I loved that they have their very own alterations department in-house. The seamstresses are very professional, creative, and skilled. I loved my dress, it was everything I had envisioned and I received so many compliments on my wedding day. I definitely recommend them!
I learned about Wolsfelt's from my beautiful mother-in-law, Alma. I had gone to other bridal shops, but just couldn't find what I was hoping for. My family and I had such a wonderful experience, from finding the perfect dress, to the perfect veils, hair piece and the dresses for my mother-in-law and grandma's. Our dresses were so beautiful and I'm so happy we found them at Wolsfelt's. We worked with a very professional and attentive associate, who helped me and my family find the perfect dresses that fit our personalities. Her name is Lorrie. Lorrie was so sweet and helpful. I'm so glad I said yes to the dress thanks to Lorrie's help. When I needed to go in for alterations it was very easy, and I was made to feel like a princess every time I walked in the door. All I can say about Wolsfelts is WOW! If you are looking for great service and beautiful dresses go to Wolsfelt's!!
Everyone had always told me that when you tried on THE dress, you would just know. After going to four other bridal shops, I was becoming skeptical of that sentiment, thinking that I should stop living that fantasy and just pick something. My beloved older cousin and role model found her perfect dress at Wolsfelt, and I had a little bit of hope left in me when I pulled up to their adorable little shop. The second we walked in the door, there it was, right on the first mannequin. Of course, lovely Lorrie pulled it down for me as well as many other beautiful dresses, but when I tried it on, there was my fantasy moment. It was THE dress!! My entourage had tears in their eyes that day, and my husband had even more on the day of. But here's the thing... at Wolsfelt, you get more than one fantasy moment. All through alterations, Carmen made me feel like a princess again and again. Every fitting I had was another amazing experience. I thought it was improbable that the dress could look any better than it did when I first tried it on, but I was happily proven wrong. Carmen's skill is completely unmatched and she gave me the confidence I didn't know I had! Thank you to everyone at Wolsfelt, especially Lorrie and Carmen, for my absolute favorite parts of wedding planning. I could not have had the most perfect walk down the aisle without you!
At first, I was a little turned off because there was nobody at the concierge to sign us in (and there were a few groups waiting!). So we kind of browsed for a bit. Eventually, I got to "check in" and meet my consultant/stylist. EVERY SINGLE DRESS she pulled for me was gorgeous. I loved ALL of them. It probably helped that I went during a weekend of a trunk show, but this place had the best selection of dresses by far. It was SO HARD to pick one; every dress was better than the last. But I did pick one favorite and I ended up buying that one :) I would definitely recommend Wolsfelt's to everyone!!
I purchased my dress at Wolsfelt's and I'm so happy I did! The detail on the dress was impeccable and no other bridal salon had the same quality. The service is fantastic. Best customer service, they make you feel very special!
I found my dream wedding dress and all of my accessories here. By the time I reached the wedding day I felt like everyone at Wolsfelt's was family. My husband and groomsmen all rented their suits and looked great. The only difficulty I had was in narrowing down the choices to one!
My dress shopping experience at Wolsfelts was amazing! I was paired with Jenny and she made the process of finding the perfect dress so special. I went through several white dresses before coming across a blush tulle dress – absolutely not what I was expecting but when I put it on it felt like it was made for me. I thought the dress was beautiful but that it needed a little sparkle, so Jenny helped me find these gorgeous beaded straps that they added to the dress. The fitting process was pleasant also! Sharon was wonderful to work with and I knew I was leaving my dress in good hands between each visit. I would highly recommend Wolsfelts to every bride!
Wolsfelts is amazing. I went here for my prom dress and lived the service. I came back for my wedding dress! Lorrie is absolutely amazing! She helped me every step of the way, even getting me in for a last minute alteration!
Excellent service from Lorrie, very friendly atmosphere, and customer oriented.
I can't rave enough about Andrea, Dawn and the rest of the ladies at Wolsfelt's Bridal. Andrea was patient, funny and knowledgeable. Every gown was more beautiful than the next, but I was able to find the perfect dress on my first visit. I highly recommend Wolsfelt'so Bridal to every bride to be!
I got my wedding gown from Wolsfelt's Bridal... it was a great experience. Their seamstresses can work magic! I definitely recommend Wolsfelt's! The atmosphere is very family orientated and feels like you are at home.
I got my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and tuxes at Wolsfelt's Bridal. My whole experience was absolutely wonderful! The staff was very welcoming, helpful, and insightful when helping me create my perfect day. I would recommend this shop to anyone! I felt that they were genuinely interested in my special day and did everything they could to make it run as smoothly as possible.
They had beautiful dresses that no one else had and a huge selection. The people were so easy to work with and took the time with me. They even went out of their way to hold a dress from the trunk show till my family came into town a week later! I had a wonderful experience.
I had such an amazing experience here! Wolsfelt's was my second stop on my first day out shopping and I bought my dress the same day. I was able to make a last minute appointment and they were beyond helpful. I tried on a ton of dresses and then re-tried the same ones countless times and they were patient every time. Of course I received countless compliments on my wedding day and I know it's because the dress was altered perfectly and they helped me pick out the perfect belt to go with it. I would recommend them to any brides in the area!
I loved my experience at Wolsfelts! It has become a family tradition to purchase the wedding dress from them. Both my mom and sister got their dress there and I continued the tradition! My dress was a Wolsfelts Exclusive Collection which made it feel very unique. My dress was a show-stopper and everyone is still raving about it! Overall, great customer service, alterations, and all around experience. Highly recommend!
Wolsfelt's did a great job helping me find my gown. They truly have experienced staff and know how to host a customer. Maria, my seamstress, did a great job getting the exact fit that I was looking for. My dress and veil were cleaned and nicely pressed.
Only went to one store to find my bridal gown. Lori helped with selecting a gown and we went over our time limit, but it was between two dresses. She was very patient with me since I tried the 2 dresses on about 10 times. Great customer service. Loved my dress, had so many compliments. As far as the seamstress and alterations went I think that could've been a lot better. I had to go in 3 times for her to get it correct and had to bring my sister in to be firm with her of how the dress should look. She wasn't making the straps tight enough, and she forgot to fix the beading on the straps. It was frustrating have to go back 3 times before it was fixed.
I absolutely love Wolsfelt! From the moment I first stepped into their shop, I felt welcomed and knew I was going to get the help that I needed. My mom, older sister, cousin, and friend all got their dress from here and I am so happy that I was able to get the help that I needed as well. I just got married on Saturday and my dress was ready to be picked up the Thursday before the wedding. The alterations turned out perfectly and I couldn't imagine my day without their help.
Wolsfelt's did an amazing job with helping me find the perfect dress to help my vision come to life. There are a huge array of options for dresses; the process of trying them on and picking one out was really fun for my mom and I! All of the associates were always very helpful and a pleasure to work with!
I had a fabulous time at Wolsfelt's! It was such a welcoming and fun atmosphere to be in. I had gone dress shopping prior and did not have such a great experience, however, at Wolsfelt's my amazing consultant, Alyssa, helped me pick out a large variety of dresses, never rushed me or pressured me. I loved being able to feel this way when I was making such an important decision as my dress! She really listened to my interests and helped me achieve my dream. Her accommodations went above and beyond. I couldn't be more happy with the experience and my dress!! Plus, I received compliments all night!!
Wolsfelt was recommended by a family friend so I decided to see that they had since I didn't want to go to a chain store. I loved them. They had a variety of dresses to choose from. I wasn't sure what I wanted so I tried on different styles, about 6 dresses total. Finally I tried on the one that made me feel like a bride. Easy to order dress and veil. Loved how I had the same seamstress throughout all of my fixings working with me. Would recommend them anyone looking for a wedding dress.
Let me just start out by saying that I was one of those brides you see on TV that tried on over 100 dresses. Not being a size zero is very hard in the bridal world as everything runs smaller to begin with. From the moment I walked in Wolsfelts, Andrea made me feel beautiful and accepted for who I was and determined to find my dream dress. Wolsfelts is awesome and can order basically any dress even if they don't have it in store. I had tried on my dress at a different store in the beginning of my search and ended up having such an amazing experience at Wolsfelts that ultimately they were able to order it for me and I got to have my entire process be with them. My dress took about 7 months to come in and I did a total of 4 fittings (one being when I picked up the dress to complete my bustle). When I was younger I had heart surgery twice, leaving me with a scar that comes up almost to my neck. I have a larger chest, making my scar look like my cleavage start higher than the average woman. I knew that I wanted an illusion neckline created to cover it up, only so I did not have to worry about pulling my dress up all night. I also wanted the illusion to be in back as well to make the back look sexy but not too revealing as it was a deep V. Carol exceeded my expectations and seriously brought my vision to life and made my dress stunning. I cannot tell you how beautiful I felt and how many compliments I received. I may be biased, but it was the most beautiful dress I have ever seen and it was so comfortable!!!! I did not have to worry about it falling down or anything and it fit me like a glove. Wolsfelts exceeded any expectations I had and made me feel like a queen on my big day. I will recommend them to any and every bride as they make you feel a part of the family and welcomed at their store!! Thank you for being a part of the best day of my life!!!
My experience at Wolsfelt's was great! My party came in and picked a few wedding gown for me to try on and I did BUT none of the was THE ONE, I explained to my consultant what I was looking for she left the room came back with one dress and BAM, I had found my gown!!!
I never thought that I would get my wedding dress from the first place I started looking, but Wolsfelts somhow did it! I brought my mom and maid of honor – their dressing rooms are on the smaller side so I would recommend a small group if you’re bringing a group. Jenni was our stylist - we started out with about 12 dresses & by about dress #8, I had found “the one”. They helped with all of secondary details – the alterations and fittings, jewelry, scheduled pickups, my mother’s dress – with ease. Everyone in the salon is a joy to work with, especially their store mascot (the dog!). I will definitely recommend Wolsfelts to any bride: make this a “must stop” on the search for your dress!
I went here for my wedding dress at the recommendation of my best friend. I LOVED my experience and purchased my dress here. Alterations were a breeze (although all I needed was a tiny hem, adding cups, and a bustle). They were great to work with and I would recommend to anyone!
