  • This was the worst bridal experience for my daughter. I paid $2300.00 for my daughters custom wedding dress, only it wasn't custom. Everything about it was wrong, and not what we ordered. It cost us $600.00 to fix the mistakes, and Always and Forever only agreed to pay $200.00 of that, as disappointing as that was, we accepted it. Only the $200.00 check bounced. We have left numerous messages and emails for the manager, and she has never returned our calls. They have never made good on the bad check. Unfortunately, small claims court is our next stop. It is not worth it to go to this shop when there are so many other bridal stores in town. What was supposed to be a wonderful experience has ended up being a nightmare.

  • Immature and rude manager. We bought three bridesmaids dresses for a wedding in January. I have never in my life experienced such unwillingness to help and unprofessional behavior from a company. DO NOT SHOP HERE!!!! My dress was made incorrectly by the designer, pleating that was suppose to be in the front and center was not. When I brought this to the managers attention, her reply was "well don't you know a seamstress". We paid a rush delivery fee and were told our dresses would be here by November 5th, they didn't arrive until December 3rd, there was no apology, no refund - which I wasn't even looking for just a little communication they were late would have been nice! Instead the manager told me "well what you like me to do about it" Not a well run business!

  • I had a great dress buying experience. Nicole was great to work with. My dress came in on time and looked wonderful! The only issue I had was when I went to get my dress altered. My alterations specialist found out that the bottom layer of my lace dress was cut and sewn at an angle. Therefor, I needed to get more alterations done. I understood this wasn't the bridal salon's fault. However, I wanted them to put me in touch with Allure Bridal. Allure doesn't take non point of sale calls. I tried multiple times. Each time I tried Always and Forever I got an associate who assured me that the manager would call me back. This went on for weeks until the phone wasn't being answered during their store hours. I found out that on my final attempt that the store closed down. I understand that it wasn't the salon's fault, but the manager should have put me in contact with the people I needed. I didn't expect to pay a lot for a dress only to need half of it redone.

  • The red flag on this business should have been their inconsistent hours of business during the week. We ordered all of our bridesmaids and personal attendants dresses from here. They kept telling us our dresses would be in at a certain date and each time the date came around we called to see if they were in and they weren't, to which they'd reply definitely next week and when the next week came around we called again and kept getting the same response. They acted as though we were an inconvenience to them. We finally received our dresses over a month after the first date that they told us they would be in and with a little less then a month before the wedding to get alterations done. I don't understand how they could be so incompetent on knowing when they'd be in. The kicker some of the dresses were supposed to be in a different color and they didn't order them correctly so all the dresses are the same color. I would not recommend this shop.

  • So happy to have found this place! I originally found a dress online that I absolutely adored and they were the only to have it - they had the sample on order. My schedule with my bridesmaid was pretty tight and when we came in for our appointment that original dress I had my heart set on had not yet arrived...As you could imagine I was a little bummed out of course. However, these gals here were so supportive and still managed to make it the most wonderful experience while my bridesmaids and I were there! They still had just the most beautiful gowns and I was able to have that "say yes to the dress moment" with another dress that I fell in love with! They made it a very fun and memorable experience - we even went back to them to find bridesmaid dresses later on. Love, love, love - so happy with everything!

  • Beautiful dresses and amazing staff! First and only stop. I absolutely fell in love with the 3rd dress I tried on. So many dresses to choose from. We also rented tuxes and I purchased my bridesmaids jewelry there too!

  • I was not intending to start dress shopping when I found my dress at Always and Forever, but when I saw the price of my dress I couldn't pass it up. The staff is amazing and helpful. I would recommend this store to everyone!

  • I was not expecting to walk away with my dream dress when I went to Always and Forever Bridal, but I ended up doing just that! My appointment started right on time and I had the whole place to myself (along my with mother and future mother in-law). The staff was extremely professional and I never once felt pressured to buy anything. I was able to try on every dress that I liked and ended up with a dress that I not only loved but was a great price! I would recommend Always and Forever Bridal to any bride :)

  • I purchased my wedding dress from Always and Forever. It was easy to make an appointment and the salon was very friendly and I was made to feel special while I picked out my wedding dress. The staff was very helpful and listened to the type of dress that I wanted. The rooms are spacious and allow for plenty of people to come with to help with picking out the perfect wedding dress.

  • The ladies at the store are very helpful. They helped me find the perfect dress for me. They were also very helpful when it came time to pick bridesmaids dresses. We ran late on my appointment and they didn't make us feel rushed or leave (like other stores do).

  • I had a great time shopping for my wedding dress at Always and Forever Bridal. To start, I was a little late getting there (miscalculated travel time), but they were very flexible and still gave me my full appointment time. The gal who was helping me did a great job pulling dresses that fit my style and vision, and she also allowed me & my guests to pull dresses ourselves. I ended up finding THE dress, and I ordered over the phone the next day. When I ordered, they said the receipt would be mailed to me. After a few weeks of not receiving the receipt, I called. Turns out it hadn't been sent but was in my file. They promptly mailed it to me. I hadn't ever gotten an ETA for the dress when I originally ordered, so after a few months of not hearing back I gave the shop a call to find out my dress was scheduled to arrive the week of July 14 (one month prior to my wedding date (!)). I am not sure if this delay was on the part of the shop itself, or if it had to do with the designer, but I ha... Read more

  • Lack of customer service at this bridal shop. While bridesmaid dress shopping a swatch of the wrong color was sent to the bride. At that time the bride contacted Always and Forever and informed them of the error. The bridal shop said they would send the proper color and never did. Dresses were ordered in the wrong color and because the bridesmaids were unaware of the proper color name, an easy mistake when planning a wedding from different states, they signed a piece of paper and bought the dresses. Once the bride was notified of the dresses being the wrong color Always and Forever washed their hands of the situation stating that if the owner tried to pay attention to every brides detail she would be on the phone 24/7. Just think prospective brides is detail important to you? The owner then offered one solution which was to have the bride buy all new dresses at full price plus a rush fee. The owner never offered any apology or blame for the error in ordering. Take your money to a diffe... Read more

  • Always and Forever Bridal is a great place to go dress shopping. It is a casual atmosphere with a lot of options to try on. They do not pressure you into something you do not want, they wait for you to have the "This is my dress" moment.
