  • I loved my experience at Arlene's Bridal! I absolutely loved my dress and all of the girls who helped me with my try ons, fittings, and alterations were so sweet and helpful. I especially loved the seamstresses, they are the sweetest ladies and I also loved working with Nicole, she was fabulous!! She helped me numerous times to try on dresses and then try on my dress during fittings. Nicole's dad even ended up being our florist (Michael's Florist in Bloomfield) and he was awesome and our flowers were so so beautiful! My bridesmaids also had a great experience here as well with their bridesmaid dresses! I/we had an all around wonderful experience!

  • All the ladies at Arlene's Bridal Salon deserve a 5/5. I must have tried on my final wedding gown a total of 10 times before we finally decided it was the right fit for me. Debbie even held my dress for three yeas after I postponed my wedding....even though it was out of style by now I still was in love with my gown and would not trade it for what is in style now. They do have a trunk show a few times a year which allows you to pick out accessories (a little bit over priced) but you have plenty of options to choose from. They have a great selection of gowns and are highly patient with you. However, no matter what others say pick what is right for your body type and always take someone else with you. I got plenty of compliments all night on my wedding gown. Thank you again!

  • I cannot begin to express how wonderful my experience was from beginning to end at Arlene's Bridal. From the moment I walked through the door, I was greeted with smiles, and greeted warmly! Jules was my consultant and she was nothing short of wonderful, she was laid-back, but professional, saw my vision, and was completely dedicated and patient and took the time to help me find exactly what I was looking for even if it meant changing a dress to make it perfect for my special day. Their selection is wonderful, and their prices even more so! I also, was lucky enough to buy my bridesmaids and flower girls dress here as well. Again the selection and prices were wonderful. Debbie, Jules and the Staff were so willing to go above and beyond to accommodate all of my needs from my pregnant bridesmaids to a flower girl out of state. I cannot thank them enough for everything!

  • Wonderfully, personalized experience from day one till the day I picked up my dress. My dress is gorgeous (fit great from the start but the alterations for my cap sleeves and hem were beautifully done and with great care). Thank you all for helping with the rushed order as well! We didn't just look gorgeous, we felt gorgeous!

  • I decided to try Arlene’s because I knew a few ladies who got their dresses or the bridesmaids’ dresses from them. My very first wedding dress shopping experience was at David’s Bridal where I tried on maybe 5 dresses and was not impressed with any of them. My first appointment with Debbie at Arlene’s was a much better experience. Debbie and I talked about what I was looking for as far as style and price and I must have tried on 20 dresses that day. I found a dress that might be a contender but it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for so I left empty handed that day, but something told me I had to go back to Arlene’s for my next shopping trip. The next trip I tried on the dress I semi-liked before but still had the same impression on it. Debbie then pulled another similar dress that I tried on and it was the instant “Say yes to the dress” feeling. However I can be very indecisive and wanted to sit on the decision. THIRD trip back to Arlene’s I tried on the dress agai... Read more

  • My dress was BEAUTIFUL! I wish I could wear it more often. I really loved my dress, and without Christina at Arlene's, I would never have found it. They have a great selection and the staff is so knowledgeable about their dresses. They did a great job with the tailoring as well. All of my girls got their dresses at this salon as well. The store is very busy, but they usually find a way to fit you in. Christina is no longer there, but the rest of the staff is great too! The owner, Debbie, is very personable and friendly as well. I recommend them every chance I get.

  • I had a wonderful experience at Arlene's Bridal. It was the first place that I went to try on bridal dresses; I felt very comfortable and Christina, who helped me with my dress choices, was very attentive and chose the perfect styles according to what I described. I would highly recommend this salon for its variety of dresses and friendly, professional staff.

  • My sister in law brought me to Arlene's to try on Wedding Dresses one day - no pressure since my wedding was still 10 months away. Little did I know but I fell in love with the first dress that they put me in and ended up wearing it for my wedding last month. It was a stunning Mori Lee dress and I still love looking at it in pictures. I was one of those brides that was convinced I would only find my dress at Kleinfeld's or some fancy boutique and end up paying over $5,000. I am so happy that I found Arlene's instead - they are so friendly and not overpriced. Debbie was great to work with and never got annoyed with me with all my alterations and requests. I highly recommend working with her and visiting Arlene's, but I do recommend that you schedule an appointment not on a weekend when the store gets too busy and too hectic. I'm not from the area and never would have found it on my own, but it's a little hidden gem.

  • I loved this vendor because the staff was incredibly kind. They were honest, never pushy about selling me something I didn't need or want, and the most accommodating and enthusiastic group to work with! I was a difficult client because I had a huge bridal party, 2 colors, and no girl was wearing the same dress. They made it happen! They carried the designer I wanted and when they didn't have the exact dress we had been looking for online, they went above and beyond to find a dress just like it by a similar designer and color. They knew everything about dresses and made my girls beautiful!

  • I had a great experience working with Arlene's Bridal. Christina assisted me in finding my perfect wedding gown. The store did great work assisting my 7 bridesmaids in altering their gowns as well. Jesse altered my dress and worked her magic! Everything turned out wonderfully and I am very appreciative! Thank you so very much!

  • Steer clear of this establishment! Service is POOR after you have already made your deposit. Not to mention if you have the audacity to question anything, you will experience the wrath of the owner and "Jewel/Jules"! It is so obvious that these females believe they have a monopoly on bridal wear, but wake up from your nightmare please. I wish I had done more research about the business before I attempted to conduct business with them. Very unprofessional and uncouth group of ladies, excluding the seamstress, (dont remember her name).

    responded with the following comments.

    I would like to explain to Corrine once again what the situation with her bridesmaids dresses are. You ordered 4 dresses and then added an additional 2 that would have a later delivery date. You have called the store on several occasions and have been told the update on the delivery as per the company. You came into the store for a fitting for your niece and after the fitting started to tell Jewel how she "padded" the bill. Jewel showed you that both your receipt and my receipt had all the same information. Then you proceeded to demand your alterations to be done by the end of the week.. Alterations cannot be done in such a short amount of time. You state that we are unprofessional and uncouth. Your choice of words are unwarranted and unkind. I've been doing this a long time and I know when I have a customer that no matter what I say or do will make her happy. Corrine I am very sorry that you feel this way and when the other dresses come in I will be sure to call you so you can pick them up and have them altered elsewhere.

  • This bridal salon was extremely helpful. I had gone to David's Bridal previously and didn't find anything I loved, though my bridesmaids were ecstatic. I gave Arlene's a price range and they picked 3 lovely dresses, one of which I was convinced about. I showed my bridesmaids the dress I selected and they were 'eh' about it. So I went back and asked them what else they could do. They found a GORGEOUS dress for $200 more. They altered it and added a corset and underskirt. They also provide preservation services. Overall great.

  • My family lives in NJ, which is why I got my dress here. I found my dress close to where I lived at the time, and not a single store in the NY area had a sample of the style for my mom to go look at. Arlene's carries the brand, although they didn't have this particular dress, and were happy to order it in for us when I'd decided to buy it. We dealt with Christina for ordering and she was lovely. The dress arrived within 3 months, which was better than estimated. They have a flat $350 alteration fee, which is good or bad depending on the extent of alterations you need. I do have to commend them: my last fitting was scheduled for Monday morning and I needed the dress by Tuesday evening and they had no issue with this. I was disappointed however that a few stray strings - which I'd pointed out during two of my fittings and I'd been reassured everything would be gone over meticulously before the wedding - were still there when I put the dress on on my wedding day. Possibly my error - ... Read more
