  • We found my MIL dress here. The day we came, we had a great experience and they had a great variety of MIL dresses. My MIL felt like a queen on her initial day here. My MIL worked with them after her dress came in for alternations and they did a wonderful job fitting the dress to her body. The one mark that tainted the whole thing is the dress bag. My MIL had been commuting from Bronx, NY to Bloomfield, NJ for each alternation visit. When it came to taking her dress home, they gave her a plastic garment bag that you would expect from Banana Republic, not a bag for a $800+ dress. When my MIL inquired as to why she got that bag vs a cloth dress bag, they said those were only for the brides. So they sent her home with that bag. After she got back to the Bronx, still very bothered, she called them to express her dissatisfaction to which they told her that if she wanted a cloth bag, she only had to pay $15 for one. That is not what she was told or what she was offered before she left. They ... Read more

    Once again. Bridal garment bags are for brides.. even after your mom was so happy with her gown and service you still had the need to bash us on every site. After 39 years people still amaze me.

  • I booked an appointment at Arlene's for my bridesmaids dresses a few months in advance, as it was one of the only salons in the area that carried a few of the designers we were looking at online. I stopped in the week of the appointment to check out some of the dresses ahead of time and the ladies were very welcoming and attentive, without being overly so. They offered to note the dresses I liked so they could be pulled and ready for the appointment, so I took them up on this. When I arrived with my 6 bridesmaids, MOB, MOG, and aunt that Saturday, the dresses had not been pulled, but they immediately got to work as soon as I mentioned it. The ladies at Arlene's were very helpful with any questions or assistance we needed but also just kind of let us do our own thing, which was great! We were able to pull and try dresses at our own pace, with no pressure, and every maid found the perfect dress for them! It was a little chaotic with so many people in a small spot, but we were able ... Read more

  • I purchased my wedding dress from here. Everytime i went for a scheduled fitting i felt like they kept me waiting for more than 30 minutes and didn't feel like I was a priority. But when I got set up things were great. They truly are great at what they do.

  • Debbie and everyone at Arlene's bridal were there throughout my whole planning process and I couldn't have asked for a better dress experience. They helped me pick the perfect dress and made it fit perfectly. I got my dress here, my bridesmaids dresses and my mom's dress. I'm already trying to figure out the next time I can buy a dress from them.

  • Debbie, Jewel and the rest of the girls were wonderful to work with. They were always so nice, super helpful and incredibly sweet – their sense of humor and witty dialogue seemed to make the anxiety melt away! I lost around 50ibs from when I ordered my dress to my first fitting and they barely blinked an eye - they essentially had to make me a new dress. I was never nervous; I knew they could handle it and they sure did! I'm sending everyone who's getting married their way!

  • This shop is phenomenal! Their dress selection is the best I've seen and somehow I managed to find the dress of my dreams below budget! They have a fantastic selection of Mori Lee dresses that I absolutely love. Camilla was an amazing dress consultant and Nikki helped so much during the whole process. The owner Debbie is SO sweet and makes everyone feel welcome. But I really need to shout out Jessie - she must have magic hands because she made my dress look and feel like it was my second skin. She took lumpy parts of the boning and smoothed it out to lay nicely against my silhouette. She added some extra tulle under my gown to make it more full at the bottom. She had to oh-so-carefully remove all the delicate lace to shorten the dress and made the most delicate (yet complicated lol) bustle for my train. Jessie is fantastic and worth every penny for alterations. I am sending all of my newly engaged friends to this bridal shop!

  • I had a great experience at Arlene’s Bridal Salon, despite some questionable reviews I read online. I got my bridesmaids dresses here. The dresses complimented each girl in my bridal party and were very reasonably priced. My bridesmaids also had the choice of having the alterations done there or taking the dress elsewhere for alterations, which I liked because my girls lived in all different areas. I highly recommend checking out Arlene’s Bridal Salon!

  • I searched a few other bridal salons before Arlene's Bridal Salon was recommended by a friend. From the moment I walked in, I knew I was in the right place. The consultants were so helpful and welcoming, and with just a few details about what my wedding theme was and what my style was, they were able to pick a number of beautiful dresses for me. The amount of dresses you can try on is not limited like some other bridal shops. The consultants, and the owner Debbie who is ALWAYS there to help, are very honest about how the dresses look on you and really help you find the one that makes you look like a princess. My wedding is not until September of 2016, but I have already "said yes to the dress". A huge thank you to Debbie and her crew - I love you all and cannot wait to put on my dress!

  • Arlene's Bridal Salon was the first stop my mom and I made when we went wedding dress shopping. I fell in love with the third dress I tried on and came close to saying yes to the dress but I wanted to make sure and see what else was out there. After checking out three more salons I had made appointments for, nothing compared to Arlene's Bridal. From the moment we walked in the salon staff made sure to acknowledge us even though they were busy helping other brides at that time. The staff was warm, inviting, friendly, and very accommodating. Debbie & Pam were awesome! You can tell they enjoy what they do because they take the time to get to know each bride and her interests. Wedding dress shopping can be stressful, but this place definitely made me feel at ease and stress free. So glad to be a part of the family!

  • There were some sketchy reviews online about Arlenes specifically about the owner Debbie that made me a little nervous about actually going. Well I decided to hell with the negativity I'll be my own judge. Pinterest totally made me a scatterbrain so I had no idea what I was looking for I was all over the place. Priscilla reigned me in and got An idea of what I was looking for. I tried on 7 dresses and the last dress I just knew it was mine, I couldn't stop smiling. She accessorized me and I knew i had found my dress. When I told her I had one other appointment she totally understood and said that when I was ready to come back she would be there, she didn't pressure me or anything, well I went to that other appointment and couldn't wait to get back to arlenes to get that dress back on! I practically ran out of there and called Priscilla and told her I made my decision she told me to come right in and made time for me right away. She put me back in the dress and accessories without any h... Read more

  • What's the most important thing about choosing a wedding dress? That you love it, whatever one you pick. I bought a Maggie Sottero Chesney dress from Arlene's and was just so pleased!! It fit so well and I got so many compliments while staying within my budget. Jewel and Debbie were wonderful to work with and they completely accommodated my timing. I'm in NYC and had tried RK for a Maggie dress...which would not have arrived until a day before my wedding. When I went to Arlene's I was relieved to order one in the style I'd wanted with plenty of time to spare. And even though it was a form-fitting sweetheart dress with an inner corset, the beautiful dress kept feeling more comfortable on the day of--as if it were molding to me, not the other way around. That's because these dresses are well-made. The seamstresses here are wonderful, know bodies and their craft and will spend time with you. Another thing I found noteworthy about Arlene's is that it is up to you--to know how it feels, how... Read more

    Our customer service is well known as being very good. You need to take responsibility when scheduling an appointment. The seamstress is there for the customer. If the customer doesn't show there is a no show fee. Yes we do charge for alterations it's clearly shown on your receipt. Customers should read the receipts and be aware of our policies.

  • I purchased my dress from Arlene's Bridal. Alrene's was the first place I went to try on dresses and fell in love with a dress. I went to a few other shops but came back to Arlene's to get the dress I loved. The person who helped me put me in different silhouettes that I never would have thought about. Every dress I put on, looked good on me and that's saying a lot considering I'm a plus size bride. The dresses also were able to zip so I could really see how I looked in them. Some of the other stores I went to only had smaller dresses so it was hard to imagine what I would look like in them. The store is a little no frills but that didn't bother me in the least. I got a great dress at a great price. I tried on the same dress in another store and it was $200 more expensive. When I was trying on my gowns the seamstresses and other workers were all commenting on the dresses and helping me to make the decision. It was the best experience I had trying on dresses and I am glad I w... Read more
